A Day of Cooking (at Home) with Nina Agdal

START body

If you follow Nina Agdal on Instagram, you know she’s just as enthusiastic about whipping up delicious—and healthy!—meals (think Instagram-worthy salads and savory grain bowls) as she is about sharing at-home workouts and documenting the adorableness of her pooch, Daisy Agdal. Though the the Danish supermodel and unofficial expert on New York City eateries just launched her very own fitness and lifestyle app, Agdal took time to exclusively share her favorite breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes with CR. All are simple, tasty, and perfect to make while under quarantine.

Breakfast: Simplest Green Smoothie


Small handful of blackberries and raspberries (fresh or frozen)
Handful of spinach
Half a banana
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 tsp spirulina
1 tsp maca
1 tbsp raw almond butter
Handful of ice


1. Blend.

    Optional: Add a quarter cup of rolled oats for a more filling smoothie.

    Nina says: “It has vitamins and minerals like A, C, K, folate, and manganese. It’s also high in fiber and contains nutrients to help manage blood pressure and support digestive health. It’s a natural energy source and keeps you full and your blood sugar stabilized until lunch.”

    Lunch: Protein-Packed Power Bowl


    1 cup cooked brown rice
    Handful of greens (kale, spinach, mixed greens, or arugula work)
    Small handful of cherry tomatoes chopped in half
