She Isn't Afraid of Eating Meat
Ratajkowski may be a model, but don't think she exclusively eats salads. She says to Elle that she loves to eat meat, and makes sure to incorporate iron into her diet. "I really like to eat meat. I crave iron so I am definitely not the kind of person who you will often find eating a plain salad."
She Eats A Balanced Diet
Ratajkowski is a big believer in eating a balanced diet. She says to Elle, "I like to keep it really balanced to give my body energy and also be healthy."
She Loves Working Out With Others
Ratajkowski says that, while she does work out on her own, she prefers to have company. In fact she actually prefers it, and says that she's more likely to work harder when she's with others. "I'm one of those people who, if I go to the gym by myself, there's a 50/50 chance of me actually working out and really pushing myself," says Ratajkowski to InStyle.com. She also says that she loves fitness classes for that reason. "The class environment works really, really well for me."
She Isn't Afraid of Indulging
While Ratajkowski does try to eat healthy, she admits that she indulges often. "I enjoy dessert every so often and eat carbs," she tells The New York Times.
She Loves Juices
Ratajkowski tells The New York Times that she loves drinking organic juices. Her favorite is a juice that has "turmeric and beets." Says our sister site Eat This, Not That!: "Beets are a powerhouse food in general. They are made up mostly of water but are high in fiber (2.3 grams per beet) and nutrients like calcium, magnesium, potassium, and vitamin A. Although these are solid health benefits, what makes beets truly unique to that of other fruits and vegetables is their levels of the natural plant pigment betalain. According to an article from Nutrients, betalain has been linked to reducing inflammation, showing antioxidant properties, and even helping to reduce the risk of cancer in some cases."
