Miranda Kerr’s former chef reveals her day on a plate

When celebrity chef Kate McAloon first began working for Miranda Kerr, she realised the former Victoria’s Secret model truly believed in moderation. 

Kate found that Miranda was a genuine proponent of the 80/20 diet, eating healthy food 80 per cent of the time and indulging for the other 20. 

And so the renowned cook, who has also worked with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Courtney Cox, served Miranda a mix of healthy proteins and tasty snacks. 

Kate McAloon learned that Miranda was ‘very health oriented’ and focused on eating clean while working as her personal chef, and has revealed her day on a plate

Miranda would often start the day off on the right foot with the popular superfood chia pudding, Kate revealed to Body+Soul. 

For lunch Miranda would often enjoy salmon, either eating it grilled or in the carpaccio style where it is served in thin raw slices like sashimi.

The protein would always be accompanied with veggies, often Kate’s zucchini tomato salad. 

To keep her supermodel client feeling full throughout the day, Kate would serve Miranda guacamole or hummus with fresh herbs and garlic with raw vegetables. 

When it came to dinner Miranda (pictured with Kate and mum Terese) was a huge fan of Kate's light curries, and the chef would also cook up roasted chicken flavoured with tamari

Kate learned that Miranda was ‘very health oriented’ and focused on eating clean when she first began working with the model, she told The Daily Telegraph. 

The chef first met Miranda through her mother Terese, who she wrote a cookbook with called Lunchbox Solutions in 2012.

It was an experience that eventually inspired Kate to move from New York to Sydney in 2015, where she worked for Kerr and the model’s former partner Orlando Bloom.  

Kate revealed that she has seen Miranda’s own cooking skills grow since becoming a mother to son Flynn, who is now six. 

Kate first got her start as a celebrity chef after catching the attention of Megan Mullally, one of the stars of Will & Grace. 

It was Megan who recommended Kate to Courtney Cox, and soon the chef was preparing feasts for the Friends star and her former husband David Arquette. 

The couple were known for holding star-studded afternoon parties at their house, with dishes being created by Kate herself. 

‘Lots of their famous friends, like Jennifer Aniston would come around and I would cook for them. That was a fun job,’ she recalled.

Kate, who recently released new cookbook The Flavour of Joy, also revealed that she almost made a detrimental mistake at one of the parties. 

‘I was making drinks and I grabbed a bottle of olive oil instead of a bottle of tequila,’ she told The Chronicle. 

‘Luckily I realised what I’d done, but it could have been a huge disaster!’ 

Kate has since joined forces with Young Living to help educate Australians on the benefit of cooking with natural oils. 

‘I have been using oils for years…I was using lavender in cooking many years ago,’ she said. ‘Now I am learning more about it and there are a lot of health benefits.’
