Day on A Plate with model Joy Corrigan
International model, actress, philanthropist, fashion designer… and not to mention some impressive body goals, there’s little surprise that Joy Corrigan has managed to gain a following of over 668K on Instagram.
Growing up in a small town in North Carolina with six brothers and three sisters, Joy moved to NYC where she has since modelled for a number of international brands and publications, founded charity Jadesvine, starred in movies such as Aftermath and Reprisal, and has been busily working on the creation of an eco-friendly clothing line. Girl got talent.
Grabbing some time with Joy in between her various career pursuits, we pulled her aside for the latest in our Day on A Plate series. Here, she shares with Husskie what you can typically find in her eating and exercise regime.
Weekly workout schedule:
I like to practice yoga at the Alo studio in Soho. I also train at the Gym 2-3 times a week using the treadmill or machines.
I typically wake up around 6am on days that I’m shooting. Otherwise, I sleep in until around 9am.
I usually have breakfast first thing when I wake up. I love to eat berries and pecans/walnuts, and I always have organic cold brew coffee (I make it for the week and keep it in the fridge).
My favourite anytime snacks are hard boiled eggs with a dash of cayenne and salt. If I’m travelling, I love to snack on pecans, almonds, walnuts and macadamias.
For lunch, I typically eat salad with tomatoes, avocado, olives and an organic olive oil and vinegar dressing.
I try not to snack too much in the afternoon, I like to save my appetite for dinner!
I usually have dinner around 9pm. I love to cook and for dinner I always mix it up including a protein like salmon, cod, or occasionally some grass-fed beef. I try and eat foods high in fat and low in carbs – so adding coconut oil or grass-fed ghee to all my dishes makes me feel full quicker and makes every dish delicious!
I try not to eat too much dessert, but one thing I can’t resist is chocolate! I always have some handy in the bottom of the freezer! Also berries and nuts are a great addition to any bite of chocolate…
I use CBD from Kruvana to help me relax before bed. I try to be in bed by midnight during the week, getting at least 6-7 hours is so important to me!
I consider the weekend as my cheat days. I love to go out for French or Italian food and drink lots of red wine. 🙂
Everyday I try to supplement grass fed collagen in my coffee, CBD from Kruvana, Vitamin C, and magnesium.
I’m obsessed with the famous chocolate lava “hit me” cake from Catch. Or anything from the bakery at Whole Foods!
