  • - I'm Kelly Ripa,

  • and this is everything I eat in a day.

  • (pleasant music)

  • Okay, here I go.

  • I wake up in the morning

  • and the first thing I do

  • is I take a glass of water

  • and I have something called

  • Get Off Your Acid Daily Greens,

  • which is spirulina, spinach, kale,

  • all ground to a powder that you mix into water,

  • and it is for alkalining your digestive system.

  • Then I have a large coffee with ghee

  • and I blend it in the Bullet.

  • And while I'm having my ghee,

  • I have my Persona morning supplements,

  • which is my foundational vitamin,

  • my multivitamin, ginger,

  • and my probiotic.

  • And so that's phase one.

  • Then I host my morning show.

  • You're going to say, "Kelly, do you eat anything?"

  • Not before I talk on the air.

  • So I don't have any sort of chewing food

  • before I talk on the air.

  • When we're finished,

  • what I will have is a green apple, cut up.

  • And then I take two tablespoons of almond butter

  • and a teaspoon of cinnamon,

  • I blend it all together and I put the apples in there

  • and I eat that like a porridge, if you will.

  • And that is my first chewable food of the day.

  • I work out usually after I wrap for the day.

  • I work out seven days a week.

  • My body wants to work out

  • typically when I'm at work.

  • Most people that write into our show

  • or DM us or send text messages

  • or however they communicate with us now,

  • will always say,

  • "Oh, I watch your show while I'm on the treadmill

  • "at the gym."

  • And I think to myself, yes, that makes sense,

  • because I, if we have a holiday long weekend

  • and we have a pre-taped show,

  • I will watch the show while I work out at the gym.

  • Then I move on to what is,

  • what I consider

  • brunch, if you will,

  • because I eat lunch at such a weird hour.

  • It's really like a breakfast lunch.

  • I have a big salad of microgreens

  • with avocado and toasted nuts on top.

  • Sometimes I have pine nuts,

  • sometimes I have pumpkin seeds,

  • sometimes I have walnuts,

  • sometimes I have cashews.

  • Whatever I'm in the mood for.

  • The avocado toast kick of 2015 to 2017,

  • was two years where avocado toast

  • was pretty much the foundation of my diet

  • and I had it with just about every meal.

  • Sometimes I would fry an egg and add that on top,

  • sometimes a piece of cheese

  • would accompany the avocado toast.

  • But the avocado toast was a real staple of my diet

  • and they have one at Cafe Gitane downtown,

  • it's delicious.

  • If you have the opportunity to have their avocado toast,

  • I would take that opportunity.

  • For dinner, I have usually

  • a smaller version of the same salad that I had for lunch.

  • And then I have,

  • either mixed grilled greens

  • or whatever's in season.

  • I try to eat whatever is in season

  • in terms of vegetables

  • and then I have usually

  • some sort of plant protein mixed in there,

  • like a grilled tofu,

  • sometimes I'll have fried tofu,

  • sometimes I have some sort of tahini,

  • and that's pretty much my diet, except for snacks.

  • I have handfuls of nuts,

  • lots of raw cashews,

  • lots of raw almonds,

  • lots of raw pistachios.

  • I never eat more than a handful

  • but I have several handfuls a day.

  • I try not to have that many cheat meals

  • because cheat meals leads to sort of like a cheat lifestyle.

  • At my age, and this is at my age,

  • so if you're younger,

  • enjoy that aspect of your life

  • but at my age now,

  • I find that it takes too much effort to get ready,

  • so I just stay ready, if that makes any sense.

  • On my birthday, will I have cake?

  • Of course, I'm not a monster.

  • At Christmas, do I eat cookies?

  • Yes, I'm a human being.

  • But in general,

  • in general terms, I try not to cheat too much.

  • What I will indulge in

  • is a delicious chocolate covered almond

  • or chocolate covered cashew,

  • some sort of,

  • so I still feel like there's something healthy in there.

  • I also have been making a chia pudding,

  • delicious chocolate chia pudding.

  • And then right before bed,

  • I have a giant ginger turmeric tea

  • and then I take my evening persona supplements

  • which I've recently incorporated a CBD supplement into that,

  • and I truly fall asleep within 25 minutes,

  • so I have to make sure that I'm really ready for bed.

  • Can't be doing homework with the junior in high school

  • and take one.

  • So if you were to ask me this one year from now,

  • I will have three entirely different meals,

  • but it will be the same rotation of meals

  • for just about a year.

  • And that's everything I eat in a day.

  • Now I'm hungry.

  • (upbeat music)
