Her special talent is cooking, she loves to bowl, and yes—she just so happens to look sizzling in a swimsuit. Meet Miss USA 2013 Erin Brady. Before being crowned America’s favorite beauty queen, the 25-year-old East Hampton native worked as a financial accountant and earned a finance degree at Central Connecticut State University, where she minored in criminal justice, giving her that perfect combo of beauty and brains.
Brady filled us in on her slimming swimsuit secrets and admits that she’s, to no one's surprise, big into cardio. "I’m a fan of the P90X Ab Ripper—it’s only a 15-minute workout but you can work as many muscles as possible in that time. Plus, you can do it in your hotel room," she says. "Before Miss USA, I did 30 minutes of cardio every morning." To stay calm leading up to the pageant, Brady turned to Bikram yoga.
As much as we admire Brady's workout dedication, we had to find out: What does the radiant role model eat? Read on to see her go-to foods for staying slim, healthy, and happy.
