Kelly Ripa is a woman on the go—so it’s crucial that she stays fueled up with food that keeps her energized. Her nutritionist, Daryl Gioffre, helps her do just that, and recently shared with E! News what Ripa eats in a day. Keep reading to learn the line-up, plus Gioffre’s added tips and tricks that help the Live With Kelly and Mark host feel her best.

She starts every morning with greens and coffee

Gioffre told E! that Ripa wakes up her system with a glass of water mixed with a green powder by Alkamind, a brand with which Gioffre is affiliated. According to Gioffree, the mix is essentially dehydrated greens. “You’re getting a huge amount of greens in just eight-ounce servings,” he said.

After downing the green stuff, it’s caffeine time. In her coffee, Ripa mixes grass-fed butter and Gioffre’s Acid-Kicking Coffee Alkalizer, he said.

She has breakfast after Live

As a morning talk show host, Ripa’s days start early, so by the time Live ends at 10:00 a.m. EST, she’s ready for breakfast. Plus, she doesn’t like to eat before going on air, Gioffre said. After the show wraps, she’ll usually have a green apple, a few tablespoons of almond butter, and a teaspoon of cinnamon that she mixes into a porridge-like consistency, per Gioffre.

A snack and veggie-loaded lunch keep her sustained through the day

Ripa’s lunch always consists of a salad piled with microgreens, avocado, sprouts, and raw nuts. Before and after, she’ll munch on more raw nuts—a great source of protein and healthy fats—to keep her energy up, Gioffre said.

Dinner is more of the same, plus protein

Gioffre said that, for dinner, Ripa has a smaller version of her lunch salad, but mixes it up with some steamed or grilled veggies and a protein side “that could be grilled tofu or tahini or some fish protein,” he said.

Dessert and tea end the day

After dinner, if Ripa wants something sweet, she’ll have avocado chocolate mousse—which consists of avocados, pure vanilla extract, raw cacao, dates, and sea salt—or chocolate chia pudding for a boost of fiber, Gioffre said. Before bed, she’ll have a nightcap of his Acid-Kicking Detox Tea, a blend of turmeric, ginger, lemon, and black pepper.

In Gioffre’s opinion, Ripa’s diet—and any healthy one—is all about balance. “It’s not about deprivation,” he said. “It’s about moderation.”
