A few weeks ago, I got to interview Steph Claire Smith. As with any interview we do, I asked the team what they wanted to know. With diverse interests, I’m often met with a range of requests but not this time. When it came to Steph, the question was unanimous: what does she eat to look like that? (Albeit, there were variations—quote: “Steph just seems to eat like a normal person and work out a bit. Like, HOW do you look like that?!”)
While we haven’t had the privilege of interviewing Laura Henshaw, the same goes. They’re both fit but healthy and don’t seem to live a life of deprivation. So what does an average week of food look like for the girls? It turns out we’re not the only ones who wanted to know. It’s the reason they developed their healthy lifestyle platform, Keep It Cleaner.
“We developed Keep It Cleaner after years of being continually contacted by fans who were desperate for advice, real advice. Young women are confused by fads and the complexity of choices. It is confusing and to be honest, life shouldn’t be that hard! So, we created KIC, to respond to our fans, to give them a platform they can live by, a platform that they can relate to, and a platform that speaks to them, not at them!” the girls said. “It isn’t about diets or spending countless hours at the gym; it’s about balance.”
One year on, they’re set to release Keep It Cleaner 2.0 if you will. It’s got all the things you love—healthy meals, inspiring workouts, tips and tricks—but with some serious updates. So what can we expect?
Launching next week (September 4), the new and improved Keep It Cleaner program is a 28-day guide to leading a healthy lifestyle, hassle-free. Each week includes two HIIT sessions, two boxing circuits, two learn-to-run sessions and one strength workout as well a 7-day meal planner with healthy, easy meals; mindfulness and meditation techniques; time-management tips and much more. Along with this, Steph and Laura have teamed up with Boost juice to provide discounts that support their meal plan—$5 smoothies, that’s liquid gold.
For a sneak peek into Keep It Cleaner, the girls have shared one of their five-day meal plans. Rest assured, it’s not a diet. It’s a clean eating program that’s actually sustainable. Think pizza and pad thai with a healthy twist, smoothies and raw treats.
Get prepping this weekend and scoot over to the KIC website to find out more.
