Kelly Osbourne Dishes On Her Stay-Slim Secrets

Famous for her colorful hair, unique style and true-to-herself attitude, the fashion-forward Kelly Osbourne has been focused on getting and, more importantly, staying healthy. (Since kicking off her weight loss journey back in 2009, Osbourne has shed and kept off an impressive 70 pounds!) To help celebrate the launch of Wheat Thins Popped, we got the skinny on Osbourne’s fit physique.

“I’ve been through a huge transformation in my life,” Osbourne told FITNESS Associate Beauty Editor Molly Ritterbeck. “It’s not just about health, it’s about maintenance. It’s finding the way you want to be and working on yourself and finding things that work for you.” So, how does she do it? Simple swaps and go-to snacks are her top tricks. “I’ve started to take my own snacks with me on set,” said the Fashion Police starlet, adding that Wheat Thin’s new poppable product is actually one of her favorites.

“I tasted-tested every single one before I said ‘yes’ to doing this [campaign] because I can’t lie,” she said. And boy, do we appreciate her honesty! But sometimes a little mental fibbing is just what you need when it comes to swapping out those not-so-good-for-you treats. “If you want sour cream, have fat-free Greek yogurt instead and add some lime and a little pinch of salt and your mind thinks it’s the same thing,” explained Osbourne.

And when it comes to her workouts, Osbourne likes to mix it up. “I love a good sweat and a run and I do circuit training,” she said. “But I also love my hula hooping and…fun stuff like the trampoline workouts and there’s a jazzercise class that I want to start doing in LA.” She even tried out salsa but says she can’t keep it up “because I get too competitive and by the time I leave, I can’t walk.” Looks like her Dancing with the Stars days aren’t quite behind her yet!

Snack Attack! The Must-Try Dip to Pair with Pretzels

Pretzels are the perfect snack—a little salty with a whole lot of crunch. (No wonder so many distance races offer them at the finish line shoot!) Alone they’re great, but topped with something? All the better. Put a twist on the classic munchie with this savory recipe. I mean, it’s National Pretzel Day tomorrow, after all. Time to celebrate! Double-dipping encouraged.

Ricotta-Roasted Garlic Dip

1 bag Rold Gold Three Cheese Pretzel Thins
6 bulbs whole garlic
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 pints ricotta cheese
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon salt
1 pinch freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350°F. Using a serrated knife, cut the top ¼ of each head of garlic off, exposing the tops of the cloves inside. Place the garlic heads on a sheet of aluminum foil and drizzle olive oil over each one. Wrap in foil and place in the oven for 45 minutes. Remove and allow to cool. Squeeze roasted garlic out of each head and place in a mixing bowl. Add the ricotta, Dijon mustard, Parmesan, salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Serve and enjoy!
