“I have a hectic schedule, but when I have a spare hour or so, I walk.” She says. “I also love to horse-ride, and in winter months, I ski and snowboard. When I’m on set, my Pilates Trainer comes in to train me. Really, I try to make time for it.”
Uma Thurman decided to significantly reduce her meat consumption, without going so far as to become totally vegetarian, according to an interview on Live with Kelly and Ryan show.

If she stays on a vegetarian diet most of the year, the actress allows herself some exceptions for holidays and special occasions.
“I am rather ashamed to say that I had a barbecue for Easter. Fortunately, all my friends and family are on the same wavelength. Everyone tries not to eat meat all the time, so when we cook for a family meal, everyone sits at the table, “she said.
