Now, we must admit, we had to pause when we saw this question from a Vampire Diaries fan: What does Nina Dobrev eat? Were they asking about the actress’s diet, or were they curious about whether Elena Gilbert is chowing down on bunnies and Bambi on the show? 

Well, we can answer both questions! On TVD, Elena is all about the human blood. In fact, she’s kind of a picky eater. Not only can’t she keep down the bagged stuff (only fresh-from-the-vein for this gal!), she also wants her victims to be solitary hermits who have no relations and might even deserve to get bitten. In other words, when it comes to meal choices, Elena (usually) lets her conscience be her guide.

In real life, Nina Dobrev is pretty healthy. Not only does she work out four times a week, she stays energized by eating high-energy snacks, such as almonds. (She’s also been known to enjoy some green soup every now and again.) Though she tried being vegetarian for a while, Nina decided the lack of protein wasn’t for her. She wanted a burger... with tartar sauce?

Tartar sauce, eh? Must be a Canadian thing.
