About the Author

Jill de Jong was born in Holland, and her successful modeling career brought her to the United States. She was based in New York for many years, explored Miami for a few years, and then fell in love with Los Angeles, where she currently resides; it’s a great place to pursue her passion for health and wellness. After making the career shift from full-time modeling to health coach, personal trainer, and chef, she’s never looked back.

When Jill is not working, you can find her in the kitchen cooking or outside in Malibu running, biking, surfing, or stretching in a yoga class. She recharges by spending time with her boyfriend and friends. Meaningful conversations and delicious food make her heart sing. To stay motivated to exercise, she signs up for triathlons and Spartan races.


“Jill de Jong and her expert coauthors show you not only that models do eat—but that nourishing food is what allows them to look and feel as good as they do! This book is packed with beautifying recipes that will inspire you to feed your body well at every meal.”

—Jolene Hart, health coach and author of the bestselling Eat Pretty series
