It seems Gisele Bndchen does not take a bad photo; it's just that some are perhaps more, well, noteworthy than others. That's the case regarding a beachy pose she shared Sunday to Instagram, in which she's wearing a pretty bikini at the beach and looking impressively fit. She captioned the post by celebrating the current time of year: Sunday, summer, and sunshine = Heaven, punctuated with a contented-looking smiley face.
The supermodel and mom of two is a notoriously clean eater whose husband, Tom Brady, is also known to follow a highly disciplined regimen. Gisele is also generous with posting about the habits that see her lookingand seemingly feelingso gorgeously healthy.

If you follow sound advice about how to get your protein elsewhere, deleting meat from your diet is a good way to do away with a lot of saturated fat and cholesterol. This is how Gisele eats on a daily basis, as the New York Post's Page Six quotes the supermodel as having said: "At our house, we try to eat organic foods that are in season and locally grown . . . We eat mostly a plant-based diet. It makes us feel good, and it also has less of an impact on the environment."
She also shared: "My ultimate guilty pleasure is dark chocolate." It's actually not so guilty: Check out Eating This Type of Chocolate May Burn More Fat, New Study Says.

Smoothies are an amazing way to pack a ton of nutrients into one meal. Before Bndchen's husband, Tom Brady, had his seventh Super Bowl win this year, the Post revealed Brady's favorite smoothie recipe, which he reportedly drinks each morning at 5:30 AM: blueberries and banana, hemp protein, chia seeds, walnuts, almond butter, and hemp milk.
Since Gisele is also an all-natural food lover, it's pretty safe to bet she loves this formula, too. (For you, we've got a whole menu of weight-loss breakfast smoothie recipes right here.)
As if the weekend's bikini capture didn't make this clear, Gisele loves to be outside not only for posing, but also for staying active. Shown here on a Boston playground adventure with her kids, the Brazil native incorporates tons of outdoor activity into her lifestyle in addition to a gym routine.
In addition to her indoor workouts, Bndchen loves to get out and ski, bike, and go horseback riding, Page Six reports.

Bndchen famously adores doing yoga regularly, as she has shared on Instagram. Yoga can be amazing for stretching muscles, opening joints, supporting digestion, and many other benefits. On International Yoga Day last week, Bndchen conveyed how powerful a yoga practice has been for her:
"Many years ago, after going through one of the most difficult times in my life, I immersed myself in the very deep process of getting to know myself better. With the help of yoga and meditation, I came out of that period stronger and happier, and knowing that no matter how difficult challenges appear in the moment, they always bring with them an opportunity for transformation."

In April, Bndchen posted an Instagram photo of her eight-year-old daughter, Vivian Lake, and said: "Vivi super chef whipping up some scrambled eggs. Did someone say Miss independent?!" Young Vivi appeared to keep her scramble simple with pink Himalayan salt and cracked pepper both within reach.

"Whenever I'm in an environment that's filled with plants I feel a strong sense of wellbeing," she said. In the post, she listed aloe, lavender, and basil, in particular, as plants she recommends using.
