Want to know Miranda Kerr's secrets to looking amazing? Hint: kale juices and protein smoothies are a start. Get these recipes and more thanks to our friends at Self!
Supermodel Miranda Kerr, 30, says the secret to true beauty is what you put in your body — from good food to happy thoughts. She's dishing out her best natural tips. Eat 'em up.
Drink, drink, drink. "Before breakfast, I have warm water with a squeeze of lemon. Then I'll have a cold-pressed green juice from Juice Press with cucumber, celery, lemon, kale, and aloe vera. After that, I'll make an energizing smoothie with lots of ingredients, including chia seeds, raw cacao, goji berries, fresh coconut water, and protein powder. It's a recipe I made up. I call it the 'Miranda mix.'"
Get a perk-me-up. "I love body brushing! With a dry body brush, you brush your skin from your toes all the way up to your heart and then from your arms all the way in to your heart. It's invigorating! I do it pretty much every day."
Make time to sweat. "I try to do this little power-workout DVD, Pace Express by Al Sears, M.D., four times a week. You do intervals with moves such as lunges, squats, and star jumps. It's only 12 minutes, so it's definitely attainable. And you feel like you've had a good workout afterward."
Get a great pic. "Look at the camera as if it's someone you love or a friend, so you connect to it."
Don't be afraid to eat. "I make these gluten-free apple-and-banana muffins at least once a week. Sometimes twice!"
