Is Miranda Kerr Vegan? We Have Her Two Favorite Plant-Based Recipes
Former Victoria Secret model Miranda Kerr knows how to prioritize her health, even as a busy mother of three. She's the founder and CEO of Kora Organics, a clean line of beauty products, and every Wednesday on her IG she hosts a "Wednesday Wellness" workout series with popular exercise instructors like Megan Roup, creator of Sculpt Society, and Mary Helen Bowers, founder of Ballet Beautiful, and others. If you'd like to join these sessions and get moving with Kerr, tune into her Instagram live at 12 noon Pacific Time.
After all that working out makes her Banana Bread Oatmeal Cookies, which are vegan and look delicious. She shares her recipe for these treats and her green smoothie here so you can have amazing skin as well.
Kerr, 37, has been baking up a storm during COVID-19 crisis and her recipes have been mostly vegan leading her 12 million fans to wonder if their favorite former angel has gone plant-based.
Being stuck at home makes Kerr feel "helpless," she said recently, adding, "In a way, we're doing our part by staying home, but at the same time I feel helpless, and like I'm not doing enough," Kerr told Honey, the Australian website. As an entrepreneur and spokesperson of nutrition brand Biostime, Kerr lives by her daily mantra, "attitude of gratitude," to stay positive while she's in isolation with her family in Los Angeles (she married Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel, who she has had two kids with. Her eldest son's father is Orlando Bloom). She explains, "The fact that we're together as a family and that we're safe - that's all that mattered to me."
