Being a celebrity can be difficult, but being a top model is arguably more difficult. At least you would think so, as they are known to be limited in their calorie intake and are not able to indulge in the food delicacies that most of us enjoy every day.
However, Miranda Kerr’s cooking has helped her strike a balance between keeping her model physique and indulging in her own culinary delights. Thanks to her love for cooking, the model created the perfect gluten-free muffins (among other things), and we can’t thank her enough!
Miranda Kerr is a former Victoria’s Secret Angel
While she was notably a Victoria’s Secret model, being signed as a New Angel in 2008, Kerr was also part of several other big projects in the fashion industry. With over a decade of modeling under her belt, the superstar model has earned an entire resume of fashion opportunities and accomplishments.
She has participated in numerous TV and print commercials, beauty sessions, and catwalks – appearing on stage for prominent designers like Stella McCartney, Prada, Chanel, Christian Dior, John Galliano, Miu Miu, and more. She has also been on the cover of magazines like Vogue, Rolling Stones, ELLE, GQ and many more.
In an interview with Look Fantastic (via Youtube), Kerr seized her first “serious” opportunity that set her on the path to becoming a model for Victoria’s Secret and led to more modeling opportunities on the weekends until she graduated from high school. Kerr explained:
“When I was 13, a friend of mine entered herself and myself into a modeling contest. I won the contest, and it was a little unexpected, but it was really fun. , and that kind of opened the door to the modeling world… although I continued to finish my education, finish grade 12. [before pursuing modeling as a career]. “
Miranda Kerr makes healthy, gluten-free muffins
In addition to his incredible talent on camera and on a parade stage, Kerr also has a knack for cooking and baking in his spare time. The results? Incredibly delicious and healthy gluten free apple and banana oat muffins!
What you will need: Oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, honey, chia seeds, goat milk yogurt, apple juice, egg whites, coconut oil, coconut powder vanilla bean, organic green apples, ripe bananas and chopped nuts.
Crush your oatmeal and nuts and combine them with baking powder and soda. Then you will need to beat your eggs, mix yogurt and apple juice, and heat your oil, cinnamon, honey and vanilla.
Gather everything (except the fruit) and carefully fold in your bananas and apples. Fill your muffin tins and start baking – let them sit and voila! You have a healthy treat that’s endorsed by the models.
Kerr loves to cook and learn new things in the kitchen
It wasn’t Kerr’s first attempt in the kitchen, either. Over the years, the top model has worked with chefs to get more tips and tricks (like with TV chef Candice Kumai) or, in the next case, to go head-to-head in a cooking challenge with experts like Gordon Ramsay.
One-on-one with the Food Network’s Michelin-starred chef, Kerr revealed that she has always had a love for cooking since she was little. “Yes, my grandmother taught me how to cook when I was very young, actually.”
The model added, “I love the food. I am very into food. I see food as fuel. I am 80% healthy [and] 20% pleasure. I really am, and it worked pretty well.
