Elle is well-known for her enviable physique and in her blog, Get The Gloss, she recently shared the seven morning rituals she swears by – one of which is a mid-morning chocolate mousse!
‘I put in an avocado, a big scoop of WelleCo Nourishing Plant Protein Peruvian Chocolate, half a scoop of Super Elixir Greens and water.
'I blend it in the NutriBullet, and it becomes like a chocolate mousse. It is a great way for me to give my body clean protein, greens, good healthy fats and hydration all at once,’ the supermodel declared.
The other ritual Elle swears by is a hot and cold shower. ‘I start by dry brushing my body starting from the feet and working up towards my heart. Then take hot and cold showers to encourage circulation,’ Elle says.
Before she showers, however, Elle says she starts her day with hot water and lemon to kick start her metabolism.
‘I used to have two strong espressos first thing to ramp-up my energy, but all it did was deplete my adrenals. Now if I feel I need a boost, I add cayenne pepper and agave to lemon water – it really works!’
Elle also prefers to meditate than hit the gym.
‘I start my morning with meditation, resist looking at screens and instead focus on absolute stillness. It’s become an essential morning practice. I find it sets me up for the day and makes me feel balanced and connected,’ she reveals.
After all this, Elle finishes off her morning with ‘setting her intentions for the day,’ drinking some greens and getting some fresh air and exercise.
‘These are essential for me every morning. I love to get outside, move my body and explore. Oh and having a good belly laugh,’ she says.
