Cindy Crawford Shares Her Eating Habits, Food Philosophy

Fun fact: Cindy Crawford is 48 years old. How does she look so fabulous? We bet her diet plays a part. And lucky for all of us curious folks out there, Cindy is opening up about her daily noshing activities. The best part? Her eating habits sound totally reasonable!

"On a typical weekday, I usually have a protein shake for breakfast because it's fast—I need to get the kids out the door—and then I go right to work out. I find that sometimes if you eat you have to take extra time to let it settle," she explains in a recent piece on Into the Gloss. "And then for lunch, I'll have salad, sometimes with chicken, sometimes without. For dinner, we'll go for sushi. Or if we eat at home, I'll try to make a meal like turkey meatballs with pasta, a salad, and a vegetable. I just don't have the pasta, and the kids don't have the vegetables or the salad [laughs]. I don't like when my meals are completely different from their meals, but that works."

For beverages, Cindy says she mostly sticks to water to avoid hidden liquid calories. "I drink green tea, but I had to stop drinking as much caffeine as I used to," she says. "I had stomach issues, so coffee—especially on an empty stomach—doesn't really agree with me. Tequila, though, kills all the bugs. My husband enjoys having a cocktail, so I can't make him drink alone."

We love how Cindy doesn't take an all-or-nothing approach to healthy eating: "Diet-wise, I don't eat crap, and I don't eat a lot of packaged foods," she says. "I could easily be vegetarian, but it's not practical with my family. I try to be 80 percent good 80 percent of the time."

Making four out of five of your meals mostly healthy sounds pretty doable, even for non-supermodels. Considering giving Cindy's philosophy a shot?
