For a season that is more often that not associated with tiny bikinis, fresh tropical fruits and a multitude of outdoor activities, summer can still be quite the challenge for those of us looking to improve our healthy habits.  Between all of the traveling, outdoor barbecues, and endless poolside cocktails, it’s easier than ever to relax and give into those indulgences you may have otherwise avoided if you weren’t relaxing in a beach chair.  Luckily for those of us who have had one too many hot fudge sundaes or frozen pina coladas these last few weeks, we’ve found your detox solution and as always, this one comes courtesy of some of our favorite supermodels!

Sakara Life  — you’ve likely seen the name popping up on your Instagram feed and for good reason!  The GOOP-endorsed organic, vegetarian food delivery service is not only one of the country’s top-rated food delivery programs, but also the healthy obsession of such beautiful women as Lily Aldridge, Karolina Kurkova, ImanErin Heatherton, and Alyssa Miller. Founded in 2011 by Danielle Duboise and Whitney Tingle — both former models and Wall Street execs — Sakara, offers fresh, delivered-to-your-door meals that boast a variety of star-quality superfoods, such as chia seeds, matcha and spirulina, for optimal beauty and health.

Now, we know what you’re thinking: “Sure, it sounds good, but does it taste good too?”  The answer is, yes!  Curious to know more about the model’s new go-to diet, we decided to give the Sakara Life program a go ourselves last week, eating nothing but its pre-prepared breakfasts, lunches and dinners for two days.  Among our favorites, the Rose Petal Oatmeal, Eat-The-Rainbow Wrap with Sesame Plum Glaze and Spring Vegetable Fiery Fusion with Coconut Sriracha Dressing. It was fresh, convenient, satisfying and definitely way better than anything they were serving up at the deli across the street that day.

The Shocking Secret Behind Chrissy Teigen’s Impressive First Pitch

When Chrissy Teigen took the mound at Dodger Stadium to throw out the ceremonial first pitch on Tuesday, we should have known something hilarious would go down.  Little did we know, something did.

While the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model‘s first pitch looked impressive enough on camera, it was only later that we learned the secret behind her killer baseball skills: a few pitchers of margaritas.  That’s right— prior to hitting the mound, Chrissy and dad enjoyed one too many cocktails, which left the model feeling “pretty drunk,” or so she tweeted.  Regardless, Chrissy went out there and threw a nearly perfect pitch while also keeping things uber-sexy in a pair of blue short shorts, an Dodgers jersey and knee-high socks.

In the days leading up to her big gig, Chrissy shared her practice sessions via Twitter: “Making John [Legend] practice with me now. I have such a false confidence after 50 Cent,” referring to the rapper’s headline-making pitch at a New York Mets game back in May. Although her husband wasn’t on hand to help her at the stadium, Chrissy did confer with Dodgers catcher Drew Butera, who agreed to have her jump into his arms after he caught the pitch.  Just as planned, Chrissy totally nailed her throw and later enjoyed a sweet celebration with her family and friends on the sidelines.

Check out the photos and video of Chrissy’s perfect first pitch after jump!

It’s been a cute couple of days for Kate Upton and her baseballer boyfriend Justin Verlander.  The red-hot couple, who recently returned from a romantic getaway to Cancun, Mexico, have been spending quite a bit of time together while the Detroit Tigers pitcher is in town playing the New York Yankees.

The all-star couple started the week off with a special night on the town on Sunday, where they were spotted enjoying a meal at American Whiskey in Chelsea.  Dressed in black heels and a black top paired with a super-sexy red dress that showed off lots of leg, the 22-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, looked smokin’ hot while strolling arm-in-arm with her handsome beau.   While at the eatery, the twosome was spotted dancing, cuddling, kissing and chatting with pals, including Miguel Cabrebra and more of Verlander’s Detroit Tigers teammates.

Martha Hunt Gets Caught in Her Undies for Victoria’s Secret’s First Short Film
