This book is packed with beautifying recipes that will inspire you to feed your body well at every meal.”—Jolene Hart, health coach and author of the bestselling Eat Pretty series“Models Do Eat is a great book to use for everyday living. As a model myself, I constantly get asked what do I eat? I’m a firm believer in organic and foods that fuel your body, avoiding diet traps like counting calories or eating fat-free, depriving one’s self. This book has the best kind of recipes: easy to follow and powerful for mind, body, and soul.”—Robyn Lawley, Sports Illustrated cover model“Never trust anyone who tells you that not eating is the key to looking good! I applaud Jill and her team for creating this stunning, important book about one of the best parts of life: delicious, nourishing food! Models Do Eat is a celebration of healthy eating for real beauty—inside and out.”—Lauren Lobely, author of Accidental Paleo and plant-based chef“Jill is such an inspiring woman. She’s the real deal; she practices what she preaches. I’ll always be on team Jill because she genuinely wants everyone to win.”—Nadine Velazquez, actress“I used to eat lots of processed foods and over-exercised to make up for it. Jill introduced me to eating clean, unprocessed, delicious food, and I discovered that a healthy lifestyle was far from boring. I finally found the balance I needed. Jill has a very light and beautiful way to approach people and I am sure this book and her approach to food will captivate you.”—Martha Graeff, fashion blogger and model
