It’s no secret that Kourtney Kardashian is a health nut. So when it comes planning her meals with her kids, the mom-of-three likes to stick to a proper diet.
The reality star, who was spotted flaunting her fit swimsuit bod while lounging by a hotel pool in Miami on Firday (Sept. 16, 2016), recently took to her app to break down exactly what she eats in a day. Explaining that her entire family was diagnosed for “sensitivities to corn, gluten and dairy,” Kardashian revealed she’s made her household completely gluten and dairy-free.
“I kept battling with myself back and forth—like, why am I doing this diet? I have always felt fine before when eating dairy and gluten, but I do believe that we have one life to live and I would like to live it feeling my best,” she shared. “I have noticed a great positive change in behavior with my children when we stick to a gluten- and dairy-free diet.”
“Breakfast is really easy for us. We swapped whole organic milk for fresh homemade almond milk, organic coconut milk or organic rice milk (we all have different preferences of course, LOL!),” Kardashian wrote. “I always have my Avocado Pudding or Banana Spinach Shake every day. My kids will have waffles made from a mix without gluten or dairy, paired with scrambled eggs or cereal.”
For lunch, Kardashian likes to chow down on “carrots and celery with hummus and a gluten-free rice tortilla with sliced turkey meat or turkey dogs—no bun.”
“Penelope and I love salads, so we usually eat a big yummy one for lunch,” she noted. “If I’m trying to be really healthy, I have my Go-To Summer Salad or my Signature Salad—especially if I’m trying to get bikini-ready.”
“We stick to an easy formula for dinner and usually have rice or gluten-free pasta, steamed veggies and a protein like chicken, turkey or fish,” she continued. “I have a few key recipes the kids love, like Mac & Cheese with Turkey Bacon, Veggie Casserole and Moroccan Stew—all without dairy or gluten.”
As for snacks, the reality star prefers fresh fruits and veggies, though she confesses that she needs “indulge a little every day” with candy and sweets.
“I recently discovered that tons of regular candy is gluten- and dairy-free,” she explained. “Mason and I went to the store and got a whole stash of sweets. They even do all-natural versions of candy that taste like Starburst and jelly beans.”
