Whether you love to hate, or, love to love models – there’s always one question that instantaneously springs to mind… What do they eat!?!
It’s easy to think of models as some kind of beautiful alien life force, who’ve been put on this planet with one primary goal; to make all the mere mortals feel bad about themselves. But do not fear! I’ve braved an interview with one certain alien and asked all the gritty questions about diet and the occasional naughty indulgences. Surprisingly, it’s not all that alien at all!
Ebony Wright of Jeep Model Management is a model/dancer extraordinaire. She has recently been seen strutting her fabulous self all over the Sydney Hair Expo runways and you would probably recognise her from a number of swimwear, clothing, and advertisement campaigns. Luckily for Model & Mode, this seriously sexy model/alien found time to give us the inside scoop, or should I say portion-controlled serving. Keep reading to see exactly what this model will eat during a standard day.
Let’s start with breakfast
Allegedly the most important meal of the day and according to Wright, it really is! She routinely has porridge sprinkled with quinoa flakes made on almond milk. All organic, of course, accompanied by her only piece of fruit all day (never a banana) and a glass of warm water with lemon. After her meal, she religiously takes her Vitamins; Fish oil, Vitamin C, Coenzyme Q10, Probiotic (Kefer). Wright says “I only ever have one piece of fruit all day because it’s so high in sugar… I love taking my Vitamin C because it’s great for collagen production.”
For lunch, she usually makes a delicious organic salad with lots of dark greens. Included in her mainly alkaline salad she adds baby spinach, avocado, sprouts, cucumber, alfalfa, and tomato. Topped with a squeeze of lemon, a drizzle of olive oil, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Wright assured me that “…avocado is so delicious and full of good fats and its just great for your skin… I love using Himalayan pink salt, it’s so full of healthy minerals… I eat a tomato every day because it’s the best anti-aging food you can eat!”
Dinner is usually a variation of the same combination: lean meat and vegetables. Chicken stir-fry with brown rice or simply protein and steamed vegetables. “I try and eat fish as much as possible, if I can’t have fish it’s chicken or lean beef.” Wright also says she loves having “…dark green and red vegetables for dinner – capsicum, spinach, kale, sweet potato, and zucchini. Unfortunately, I don’t eat mushrooms any longer because of their high acidity.”
If Wright is ever in the mood for a sweet treat (yes, you can even have dessert!) she will turn to a raw, vegan tart or indulge in some coconut vegan yoghurt. Of her diet, Wright swears she eats every three hours and makes sure she drinks at least two litres of water every day.
Perhaps after all that speculation and trepidation, they might be friendly aliens after all!
