Weeks after giving birth to baby number three, the model turned TikTok chef and her husband, Lucky Blue Smith (he took the pictures), take a trip to the local grocer to pick up some tasty treats.


What type of milk do you drink?

Whole milk! I don’t remember the last time I bought anything else.

What snacks can you not live without?

I’m not a big snacker at all. If I do have a snack it’s usually fruit or my favorite passion fruit Greek yogurt with some berries.

What is your strategy for navigating the grocery store?

I always start in the produce section by picking up a few different kinds of vegetables and fruits. I make sure to always get some potatoes. Then I move onto protein and pick up two to three different kinds depending on what I’m planning to cook that week. Dairy and frozen things I pick up last, so they don’t melt as quickly.

Is there an item you buy every single time you shop, no matter what?

I never leave the store without parsley and lemons.

What’s your favorite aisle?

I get excited about the fresh produce section of every grocery store.

What are your supermarket rituals?

I have a list of meals in mind when going. I usually shop what’s in season. I also avoid going to the grocery store on a Sunday!

Top and Shorts Batsheva.

Are you a label reader?

I never used to read labels when I moved here from Germany, but a couple years ago I started and was shocked at all the things we consume without knowing what’s in them.

Do you write a grocery list?

Only when I’m cooking specific meals that require ingredients I usually wouldn’t buy. But I usually don’t!

What are your kitchen staples?

Milk, eggs, and grass-fed and grass-finished beef.

What’s your favorite grocery store?

Lately it’s been Central Market.
