I LOVE LOVE LOVE supermodels. I am talking the real deal glamazons from the 80’s and 90’s. Big haired, lean and trim, yet busty and curvy. To me those women had it ALL. The beauty, the body and the roles in George Michael videos. I always loved Cindy Crawford and Nikki and Chrissy Taylor but my favorite was always Christie Brinkley. I know this is because she is physically she is EVERYTHING I am not. Tall. Blond. Blue Eyes. With that California smile and surfer girl chic vibe. I always thought she looked friendly and sexy yet healthy. She always had a glow about her and at 56 years old, she has not lost it. Ms. Brinkley has appeared on over 500 magazine covers, she also gets bonus points for being in one of the greatest movies of all time, National Lampoons Family Vacation :)
At the age of 13, Christie decided she was going to become a vegetarian, she then got her whole family to become vegetarians. She has actually NEVER eaten at McDonalds before or most fast foods for that matter, since she was a vegetarian before fast food became the ‘All American Staple’. Healthy eating and an active lifestyle are what Brinkley credits her amazing physique to. She aims to eat as many colors as she can each day and she admits to working out regularly on her ‘Total Gym’. Christie believes that her strength training is what keeps her from getting injured. She also likes to do yoga and stretching, and spends a lot of time tending to her organic garden. On top of being a vegetarian, she also works as an animal rights activist and has done work with the animal rights organization PETA. She has also spoke out about the abuse and mistreatment of circus animals that perform at the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey circus.
Her typical daily diet consists of yogurt with berries, oats and some nuts or seeds for breakfast. A huge colorful salad for lunch with beans, nuts and/or avocado, seeds, tomato etc. And for dinner she says she usually has a pasta dish (a girl of my own heart) that starts with a pan and some garlic and olive oil. She likes to add broccoli rabe, beans or any other veggies that she is in the mood for. Ms. Brinkley also admits to loving chocolate chip ice cream and rich dark chocolates. Sounds like a healthy and balanced diet to me ;)
Thank You Christie For Showing Us Your Beauty Is More Then Skin Deep.
