When it comes to looking and feeling good, Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr is something of an expert. After all, the Victoria’s Secret stunner gets paid to be gorgeous.
She says the key is living a natural, green lifestyle, and for her that means eating a diet high in organic, raw, vegan foods.
In an interview with Women’s Fitness, Kerr explains that she was raised on a healthy diet, which makes it easy to maintain. Although she does occasionally eat meat, her daily meals revolve around fresh produce.
“I find the most satisfying food is food that’s full of life, so it’s raw and clean and organic. We have a vegetable patch in Los Angeles so when I get the veggies out and eat them from there I love that,” she says.
“My grandfather had a vegetable patch when I was growing up and my grandma would just chop the vegetables up and give them to us, so I learned from that. I find that really satisfying, the raw enzymes. I also love kale, spinach, fennel, avocado — I like to eat clean.”
Her diet is a big factor in maintaining her physical health, and Kerr relies on a natural approach for maintaining mental health as well.
“Another thing that people would be surprised to hear is that something I like to do when I get off of the aeroplane is to take my shoes off and put my feet in the grass! I love it after all of the traveling that I do, it feels so good! Or I like to sit under a tree and read a book. It just feels good to be grounded and be outside and enjoy nature and the environment.”
Kerr’s husband Orlando Bloom is also known for living a green lifestyle, and it’s something they plan to pass on to their children. In fact, that’s why Kerr says she was determined to have a natural birth with son Flynn, who arrived in January 2011 — she wanted to give him “the best possible start.”
Sounds like she’s on the right track.
