Purely Chatting with Karlie Kloss
Supermodel, turned entrepreneur Karlie Kloss recently launched a cookie line in collaboration with the decadent NYC bakery, Momofuku Milk Bar. karlie’s kookies are gluten-free and dairy-free + a portion of the proceeds for each tin of kookies is donated to FEED, to help provide nutritious meals to those in need. We had an exclusive interview with the stunning supermodel to chat about her new line, what’s in her grocery cart + how she stays fit!
Tell us about Karlie’s Kookies. Growing up, my grandmother and I would always bake together. She taught me that baking for someone is the ultimate way of showing love and kindness. Before starting Karlie’s Kookies, I would bake treats to bring with me to photo shoots and events. Then when I met Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar, we bonded over our love of baking and organically came up with the concept for Karlie’s Kookies. We spent hours in the kitchen experimenting with healthy recipes and came up with the Karlie’s Kookies vegan and gluten-free recipe. We created two flavors, the 5boro and Perfect 10 Kookie. My favorite part of Karlie’s Kookies is that a portion of the proceeds is donated to FEED and to date, Karlie’s Kookies has helped provide over 400,000 meals to those in need.
What’s your nutrition philosophy? Karlie’s Kookies perfectly examples my nutrition philosophy. It’s a delicious cookie that proves that sweet treats can still be healthy and nutritious.
What’s in your grocery cart? I’m a huge fan of almond milk, avocado, blueberries, green juice, kale – the list goes on. I like filling my fridge with superfoods, vegetables and fruits, like blueberries, that are full of anti-oxidants and key vitamins and minerals.
What do you do to stay fit? I try to do a mix of everything—running, dancing, Pilates and biking. I think it’s important to change things up so you never get bored. The key is to incorporate exercise and movement into your life. I’ll do everything from Soul Cycle to a quick fifteen minutes of weights in my hotel room when I’m traveling. My goal is to stay active and always moving.
