Hey 🙂 Today I thought it would be fun to eat like a Victoria’s Secret model for a day. I normally eat pretty healthy but not quite this healthy, so I am curious to see how this goes. I really wanted to try out some of these new recipes and see how I felt after a full day of healthy eating. I’m not trying to lose weight, just treat my body well and try something new!

For breakfast I am making the iconic Romee Strijd overnight oats. I thought this would be a good start because it seemed really healthy and like something I would enjoy.
Here is da recipe:
- hot water
- protein powder
- peanut butter
- chia seed
I also had some coffee with oat milk and I made sure to drink a lot of water like her. This breakfast was actually super filling and I couldn’t finish it all. This was definitely a fueling meal. I think I added a bit too much protein powder but other than that it was ok. I will definitely have this recipe again without so much protein powder.
So, since I was eating like a Victoria’s Secret model I thought I would do one of their workouts as well. I actually try to do this workout frequently and I really like it. It is HARD though! I used the Victoria’s Secret model ab workout on the Workout Women app. It is about 26 minutes long and has a bunch of different ab workouts.
Thought out my workout I felt genuinely good, my stomach wasn’t bloated and I felt full (but not too full). I also made sure to drink a lot of water before, during and after.
For lunch I decided to have Sanne Vloet’s smoothie. Honestly, I wasn’t super hungry yet, so this was the perfect light lunch. Here is da smoothie recipe:
- frozen spinach
- frozen broccoli
- quarter of an avocado
- one banana
- oat milk
- protein powder
I blended this up and had about one and a half servings of the smoothie. It was actually really good! It tasted pretty much like many of the other smoothies I have made but this one had tons of veggies and healthiness in it. The only thing was that it took a lot of water to make it the consistency that I like and it wasn’t very cold. I was kind of afraid you could taste the vegetables, but the protein powder made it pretty filling and tasty.
I was also craving a little bit more of something so I decided to try some avocado toast that both Romee and Sanne both eat, despite the fact that I don’t like avocados. I just put some mashed avocado on some bread and then used the everything but the bagel seasoning on top. The first couple of bites were yummy but I couldn’t finish the whole thing. I’m sorry but the texture of avocado is too much for me. I tried…
For dinner I went for one of Sanne’s dinners. She had some chicken and vegetables for dinner. By the time dinner rolled around I was pretty hungry because that breakfast and small lunch had worn off. My meal was pretty similar to Sanne’s, I had some homemade teriyaki chicken and roasted vegetables. Both the chicken and the vegetable kabobs were roasted on a grill.
Romee also said she snacks a lot through out the day. I ended up having some grapes and peanuts a little before dinner. I also had an large apple before bed. Overall the main meals sustained me pretty well and I didn’t need to snack much.
I was actually super surprised at how filling these meals were. My stomach got kind of messed up because my breakfast filled me up so much and I wasn’t hungry until dinner. I felt really good through out the day and didn’t feel bloated at all, which normally happens. I will for sure use some of these recipes again.
Thank you so much for reading. Let me know if you are going to try out any of these recipes or want to try this challenge too! I actually really enjoyed it and am super happy that I decided to try this out.
