EAT WITH ME: WITH CHARLOTTE MCKINNEY

Charlotte McKinney is a talented actress and model and has been a dear friend of the Sturm family for several years. Based in Los Angeles, she is known for valuing a healthy lifestyle by following a nurturing, anti-inflammatory diet as well as getting in the right amount of movement and exercise. Charlotte is also a skincare fanatic, which clearly shows in her beautiful complexion. Read on to learn more about what a typical day looks like for Charlotte from morning to night, and how she takes care of herself from the inside out.

When do you usually wake up in the morning? Can you tell us a little about your routine?

I usually wake between 7 - 8am and the first thing I do is hydrate with a huge bottle of water. From there, I make my morning coffee and wash my face with Dr. Barbara Sturm’s ENZYME CLEANSER, followed by the CLARIFYING SERUM, HYALURONIC SERUM, FACE CREAM LIGHT and SUN DROPS SPF 50. For my body, I apply the ANTI-AGING BODY CREAM all over.

Do you eat breakfast? if so, what is your go-to?

After my morning workout at Platefit or Hot 8 Yoga, I pick up an almond milk latte from Blue Bottle. When I’m home, I make a light breakfast, either a green smoothie with Sakara Life’s Super Powder, or Bircher Muesli (Barbara shared her own recipe with me!). I love trying all the recipes she has on her website.

What is your favorite lunch recipe?

Any type of anti-inflammatory salad. Lots of greens, veggies and a lean protein like fish.

Do you snack throughout the day? If so, what are some of your favorites?

You will always find pumpkin and sunflower seeds in my purse! The Magnesium and Zinc give me the energy I need to get through the day.

What's your ideal dinner?

Fresh white fish like a branzino paired with local fresh veggies. It’s always a winner for me.  

What’s an easy dinner recipe you make if you don’t have so much time?

I’ve really been loving cauliflower rice with baked salmon. Again, with fresh veggies. And never forget the hot sauce!

What about dessert? Do you have a sweet tooth?

If you haven’t tried coconut ice cream, you are missing out. It really satisfies my sweet tooth after dinner.

Do you have a favorite cocktail/mocktail or drink?

Oh, I love a good glass of red wine with dinner. My go-to is Dry Farm Wines, as they are all natural and cut out all the unnecessary sugars, and the headaches.
