Start your day right

Kelly revealed her favourite breakfast is a protein-packed fruit smoothie full of mango, banana, chia seeds and oats.

She says if her schedule is extra hectic, she opts for sprouted bread, topped with poached eggs and avocado.

"This bread actually tastes really good," said the model, adding she's a fan of clean-eating.

"It's packed with wheat, barley, beans, lentils, millet and spelt."

Planning ahead

Kelly also shared that she takes her own lunch and snacks with her during the day to ensure she doesn't give in to temptation and buy something unhealthy.

For an afternoon snack, she enjoys her homemade hummus with Ryvita crackers.

Blitzing up her own at home, Kelly notes it's inexpensive and "you can make so much".

Scheduling in the gym

While many fitness fans start their day in the gym, the 25-year-old prefers early evening sessions, at around 4.45pm.

Her favourite workouts are F45, high-intensity interval training, which she takes on three times a week.

Keep it simple

Kelly loves an easy meal in the evenings, which helps her to prep for the week ahead.

The model frequently chows down on a dish containing pork mince, mushrooms, zucchini and broccoli. She also adds four-bean mix to boost her protein intake.

She seasons the mix with onions, chilli and paprika and makes large batches to save herself having to cook every night of the week.
