The CSI: Miami star's days are packed with crime-fighting -- and plenty of protein.

4:45 a.m. On a workday, I usually wake up very early. (On a day off, I'll sleep in until around 9.) Either way, I get up and study scripts or read for pleasure for half an hour. I'm always too tired to read before bed.

6:30 a.m. I arrive at work and eat breakfast while I get my hair done. I have three scrambled eggs with jalapenos, mushrooms and onions. We rehearse at 7 and we're shooting by 8 -- I get dressed and get my makeup done in between.

11:30 a.m. I eat a very protein-based lunch, like some tuna salad with avocado. I nap for half an hour in my trailer, study my lines a bit more and then go back to work.

4 p.m. If I get hungry late in the afternoon, which I usually do, I'll have some red-raspberry-leaf tea -- I make a batch in the morning and drink it all day -- and hummus or buttery toast. Lately, I've been putting coconut oil on toast; it's great for the hair!

7 p.m. We finish shooting, and I head home and go for a swim -- I have a saltwater pool in my backyard.

8:15 p.m. I live near a farmers' market, so I make lots of soups and salads for dinner. I'll make borscht with boar meat and sour cream. Then I'll mix greens, lemon, gouda, pink peppercorns and celery, and then eat that with some multigrain bread and a glass of wine.

9:30 p.m. I'm a big bath-taker -- I have a lazy Susan full of bath oils and salts. Back in the day, when I couldn't afford to do anything luxurious, baths were always my thing. If it's a work night, I head to bed around 10. In the morning, it's off to work again to solve some crime!
