While I am not a fitness professional, I do have a serious obsession with working out! My modeling career demands that I stay physically fit at all times, but luckily I actually look forward to breaking a sweat (most days). I have come to take what’s in my gym bag more seriously than what’s in my purse- not kidding. From my favorite yoga mat to post-workout beauty elixirs, here is what’s in my gym bag.
Part of my job as a model is to be physically fit at all times. We shoot next seasons’ bikini lines during Thanksgiving and Christmas the year before, and so on- we never have an “off-season.” This means that while luckily I enjoy working out, I still have to find creative ways to mix up my fitness regimen to keep it interesting and also to avoid plateauing. I found F45 back in April, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
While the visible beauty may lie in the white-yellow, breezy flower puff, the benefits lie in the leaves of a dandelion. Packed with prebiotics (no, that’s not a typo- we just only ever hear about probiotics for some reason), these greens aid in digestion, reduce bloating, provide a source of antioxidants and vitamins, and are the newest ingredient in my green detox smoothies. Read on to get the full lowdown on the superfood of the moment, and find out how to incorporate it into your diet, thanks to research published by mindbodygreen and Dr. Lisa Davis of Pressed Juicery’s Medical Board.
