SI Swimsuit Rookie Kim Riekenberg’s Go-To Meals

Check out the model’s delicious diet.

Kim Riekenberg lives life on the go. Bouncing between the U.S. and Germany (where she is originally from) from one photo shoot to the next (pre COVID-19), she still manages to stay on top of her health and prioritize quality food. We asked her to share some of her typical and favorite meals:

My everyday go-to breakfast:

  • Avocado toast with cayenne pepper
  • Oatmeal with blueberries or banana
  • Soy yogurt bowl with fruits
    • Toppings: chia seeds, flax seeds, bee pollen
  • My “cheat” breakfasts when I’m craving something sweet are Nutella or jam on toast, or a chocolate cereal
  • I have a fresh pressed juice every day

My typical lunch:

I love cooking and creating new meals.

  • Avocado toast if I haven’t had it for breakfast!
  • Every day I crave a big matcha chai latte
  • Quick pasta with tomato sauce
  • Every kind of smoothie

When I’m in New York I always have cauliflower gnocchi.

My favorite meals for dinner:

I always prefer a hot meal instead of a cold one. One hot meal a day is a must.

  • Pasta with cherry tomatoes and green asparagus in a white wine lemon sauce
  • Homemade hummus with pita and Moroccan couscous salad with a side of oven-baked veggies
  • Oven-baked veggies with homemade date dip with a mixed salad on the side. I’d probably add some guacamole and some baguette on top
