She loves to cook and create dishes that are both healthy and delicious. Even though she doesn’t avoid all carbs, she still tends to eat more meat and veggies than bread and pasta. A total foodie, Teigen enjoys foods across the spectrum, from spicy exotic cuisine to Taco Bell. The one thing she avoids completely is alcohol.

Start Savory

Teigen loves eggs for breakfast. She’ll have them with avocados, turkey bacon, sausage, and of course her favorite, hot sauce. Even when she makes overnight oats, she incorporates eggs, avocado, and sriracha.

Chickens Beware

Teigen loves chicken. Fried chicken is one of her all-time favorites, but she tends to eat a healthier version on a day-to-day basis, such as a Cobb salad with grilled chicken or coconut chicken curry.

Delectable Dinners

Dinner is a time when Teigen really puts her skills to work. She adores her mother’s cooking, and makes exotic dishes like branzino with lemon, garlic, and rosemary.

\

Smart Snacking

Teigen says one of her favorite daytime snacks is a half an avocado sprinkled with salt and pepper. She might also have bone broth to fill her up between meals.

\

Midnight Snack Attack

For a midnight snack, Teigen might have a ham and cheese sandwich made with Velveeta and mayo.

Nix the Booze

Teigen gave up drinking alcohol after she realized she was using it to self-medicate.

Full-On Cheats

While Teigen eats clean most of the time, she doesn’t deny herself the occasional treat. She isn’t into guilt and makes no apologies for enjoying the occasional fast-food meal.

Teigen is keeping quiet on the subject of supplements, so below are options that can benefit anyone following a similar diet plan.

Omega 3 Fish Oil

Teigen took placenta pills following the birth of her child and says it helped with postpartum depression. Scientific evidence on this is lacking, and can lead to illness if not properly prepared. Safer options include omega-3s which reduce inflammation and can help prevent and treat depression, St John’s Wort, a proven herbal supplement for depression, and vitex which can help rebalance hormones.
