Cindy Crawford,

Looks like Cindy Crawford is the latest star to jump on the celeb diet trend. 

Seemingly taking a page from Beyoncé's book, the 48-year-old super model has teamed up with Urban Remedy founder Neka Pasquale to create a meal plan called Cindy's Essentials, which focusing on clean eating, nutritious food and, as Crawford herself tells, is "not a cleanse."

For $225.00, you can purchase one "kit," consisting of food for three full days (approximately 1500 calories per day), including mint cacao chip shakes, cold-pressed juices and healthy lunch and dinner options such as shredded kale salads and veggie pad thai.

"It's adding a lot of natural nutrients," the iconic model explains in her interview with "To me, the best thing about Cindy's Essentials is how you sprinkle it your real life. It's not a cleanse. That's such a thing, like 'Oh, I'm on a cleanse.' But this is just having something as convenient as vending machine food that's good for you." 

Another perk to the convenient plan? You can still have caffeine. 

"Yeah, but it's special caffeine," Pasquale says. "It's cold-brewed coffee so it has less acid in it. And it has almond milk in it. And then the other option is a matcha tea with almond milk. They're healthy caffeine choices." 

"I like green tea," Crawford adds. "I'm a green tea person... My body wants that every morning. Just like I need salad."

The plan also mimics Crawford's daily diet, which is jam-packed with nutritious foods, although she does enjoy indulging from time to time. 

"I would say a kale salad with a piece of salmon on it...," she reveals of her go-to favorite healthy meal. "I like food. I could name a million dishes. I like to eat with my family and they like pasta, of course, so I'll just have the turkey meatballs on a bed of raw spinach. Or I'll make salmon and mashed potatoes and asparagus and skip the mashed potatoes. The more you eat healthy, the more you want to do it because you feel better."

"I would say to stop mindless eating and focus on portion control. If you sit on the couch with a bag of chips, it could be gone very quickly," she explains. "I'm not saying don't have the chips—put however many you think is an appropriate serving in a bowl and eat that. We've gotten so gluttonous. Mindless eating is not good. You're not even enjoying the food at that point." 

She also adds that it's important to "have snacks" and "keep your blood sugar level all day" in addition to noting the importance of fitness. 

"Exercise is good, but I don't exercise every day," she says. "I exercise probably three or four times per week."
