With the six-installment of her action-packed flick "Fast & Furious" nearing its anticipated premiere, Jordana Brewster rocked the cover of Health magazine's June 2013 issue.

On how she sticks to healthy foods:
"It's so nerdy, but I pack my own lunches of grilled salmon and brown rice, because it helps me stay on track. Craft services [on-set catering] is hell. It's basically sugar and salt. Sometimes when I work long hours I have trouble with sugar; they'll keep passing me Tootsie Rolls."
On her mother's fame:
"My family is really active. My mom was in Sports Illustrated, and she was always going to the gym, which made me want to go. As a teenager, I used to sneak in with her and go to step class. I loved, loved, loved step, especially that move, the grapevine."
On finding ways to clear her mind through meditation:
"I started about three years ago because I was feeling stressed, but now it's more of a spiritual practice. I do Vedic for 20 minutes twice a day. You learn a mantra that is specific to you. People think you have to have nothing going on in your mind, but it's OK to have thoughts come up; they are being released, so you don't have to deal with them anymore. When I'm shooting, I'll go on a different set and just sit. Sometimes it's embarrassing because they'll call me in and I'll be a little dreamy."
On saying goodbye to her smoking habit:
"I smoked for just a couple of years, and that was dumb. I quit in college, years and years ago. I think when you're younger you think you're invincible."
