Oatmeal and Cinnamon

Escanes loves oatmeal with apple and cinnamon as a satiating, any-time-of-the-day snack. Candace O'Neill RD, LDN, says adding cinnamon to oatmeal "can provide that delicious sweetness and really make a meal satisfying and flavorful… It's a good addition to your diet, and it can really be a helpful way to cut back on your intake of added sugars. You can use the sweetness it brings to a recipe to cut the bitterness — or just add a little something to a meal."


Strength Training and Cardio

Escanes loves strength training and cardio sessions at the gym. "Lifting weights consistently can help improve your bone density and fight osteoporosis," according to Intermountain Healthcare. "Women who strength train often experience less pain in their joints, less bone loss, and decreased lower back pain."


Swimming and Snorkeling

Escanes loves swimming and snorkeling, even getting into the water with sharks on a trip to the Maldives. "Crossed off my list of things to do before I die… and I'm already looking forward to doing it again," she captioned a video. "When they told me that this was addicting, they were absolutely right… I cannot explain it, it is wonderful. Discovering all the life in the ocean makes me happy. Very grateful to life for being able to live this."


No Dieting

Escanes has experienced harsh treatment and judgment in the past as a young model, and says she will never allow it to affect her health and self esteem again. "I really like to eat out, a lot, it is one of the best pleasures," she says. "I enjoy it very much. I would eat at all hours."


Learning From Experience

Escanes embraces even difficult experiences as a period of mental and emotional growth. "The most difficult situations lead you to change your life and a separation is a turning point," she says. "I had plans for the future and an idea of ​​how my life was going to be. All of that breaks and you have to adapt. With distance you learn to relativize things, although in my case it is still recent. You learn from everything."
