Here’s What Whitney Port Eats in a Day to Look (and Feel) Fabulous
Whitney Port is a television personality, fashion designer and budding lifestyle guru. Between her businesses and her family (including her next-level-cute son), she’s got a lot on her plate. So we were dying to know: How does she juggle it all while staying healthy? We got Port to spill what she eats in a day to stay looking and feeling her best.
"Every morning when I wake up, I need my caffeine. I always make a cup of coffee with Lactaid milk—it’s a staple in my home, because I can’t start my day without real dairy in my coffee, but my husband Timmy is lactose intolerant. After I digest my coffee, I eat a banana. Every morning."
"I got this delicious sourdough bread from the farmers market, so I’ll toast a slice and spread peanut butter on that for a mid-morning snack. It has just the right amount of carbs and protein for me to feel satiated until lunch time. If I work out in the morning, this is also a great post-workout snack so I’m not starving by the time lunch rolls around and make bad decisions."
"For a really quick lunch on the go, I head to the grocery store to pick up groceries for dinner and get myself something quick that I can eat in the car—chicken tenders! I know that sounds so childish and unhealthy, but some grocery stores make all-organic tenders with light frying. I’ll eat about four of them, along with a peach and a coconut water. Definitely not enough for lunch, so I’ll be hungry soon for a snack."
"For a light afternoon snack, I’ll have a bunch of raw coconut, two brown rice organic rice cakes and an organic fruit bar. This particular day, Timmy was making a big meal for dinner that he had been slaving away at, so I wanted to respect his effort and have an empty stomach for dinner."
"Timmy loves to cook, and we try to keep it healthy. Usually we’ll have a grilled piece of meat with a veggie or potato and a side. This night he went all out and made short ribs with polenta. Braised meat is one of my absolute favorite meals and a hearty dish is just what I needed. For my son, Sonny, I usually make a chicken burger patty with a soft veggie on the side, like steamed carrots or beets and then he'll usually have some fruit."
"I always need to end the night with something sweet. My go-to these days are yogurt-covered pretzels. They’re so delicious, and if I eat one, I usually eat ten."
