This Is What Gigi Hadid Eats Every Day (Including the Guilty Snack She Can’t Live Without)
Gigi Hadid — Taylor Swift squad member, awesome sister, former Zayn Malik companion — takes her life as a model pretty seriously. She makes sure to eat well while still enjoying something sweet (page 7). Manhattan is full of cafes catering to all tastes, and she’s no stranger to a select few. You can’t look good without living a little.
What this supermodel eats in a typical day probably isn’t what you’re expecting. In fact, it might seem a little too familiar.
Scrambled eggs and toast
When she eats breakfast out, Hadid heads to her favorite Manhattan cafe, The Smile. She’ll almost always order scrambled eggs and toast with coffee or orange juice. When she’s at home, she often recreates the meal herself.
Next: She allows herself an extra treat if she eats this meal out.
Any restaurant you sit down in during the breakfast rush offers plates and platters full of more main dishes and sides than you’d typically make at home. Along with her eggs and toast, Hadid can’t say no to the side of bacon that comes with her favorite breakfast order at The Smile.
Next: Sometimes, there’s a little something extra on the breakfast table.
Her boyfriend Zayn used to cook breakfast, and when that happened, breakfast beans were almost always on the menu. Part of a typical full English breakfast, beans are a great food to eat in the morning if you want to stay full until lunchtime.
Next: This is the best kind of food philosophy.
A burger …
Hadid usually chooses one of two “usuals” when eating out for lunch. Sometimes, she can’t resist the urge to eat a simple hamburger. She told Harper’s Bazaar, “My personal motto is: ‘Eat clean to stay fit, have a burger to stay sane.'”
Next: Her second choice is a bit cleaner.
… or an arugula salad
There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a good burger. But Hadid does have to watch what she eats if she wants to maintain the figure that fits her profession. If it’s a “clean eating” day, Hadid heads back to The Smile and orders an arugula salad.
Next: Eating dinner out can actually be (sort of) healthy, at least in her case.
Hadid prefers to cook at home — not a terrible way to live — but she does dine out in the evenings on occasion. When she does, she almost always goes straight for the sushi. Fish won’t hurt you, even if it’s raw and prepared properly. It even has health benefits.
Next: She absolutely cannot live without her go-to snack.
What about that snack she loves so much?
Yes, even Gigi Hadid apparently can’t live without ice cream (can you blame her?). If she’s in need of a sugar-loaded snack, she heads to Emack & Bolio’s, her favorite place to get ice cream. Desserts aren’t off-limits for her, so that definitely means we’re allowed to have them too, right?
