Lemon Water In The AM

LEMON WATER STSFWarm lemon water in the morning does more than just rehydrate you after a long night’s sleep. The citric acid in lemon juice allows your body to detox while flushing out your kidneys. This provides a huge mental and physical boost in energy since your body isn’t weighed down by toxins. Plus the juice of one lemon has 187 percent of the daily recommended dose of vitamin C to keep you healthy and happy. To unleash these benefits, add the juice from half a freshly squeezed lemon to a glass of warm water.

Adrianne Ho’s Supercharged Il Buco Kale Salad

“My all time favorite kale salad is from Il Buco in NYC from Ignacio Mattos. When I remix it at home I source organic farmers market ingredients and even harvest some of the produce from my backyard. I like to supercharge the recipe with nutrient dense microgreens and seasonal sugar snap peas for more protein crunch. I don’t use vinegar like the classic recipe instead I add a whole Meyer lemon which has a nice citrus punch with floral hues. The key is fresh croutons toasted from bread with a healthy amount of extra virgin olive oil and flaky salt. Some ingredients are truly best imported and Domenico’s has some amazing anchovy fillets and DOP Parmigiano Reggiano. I garnish with fresh chiffonade lemon basil cuttings I grew on my terrace from Logan’s Gardens seedlings using my Crescent Garden Nest. Every bite has a beautiful fresh, briny, and savory hit transplanting you directly to the hills of Tuscany by way of Bond St.” – Adrianne Ho

Adrianne Ho Loves Courage Bagels

“Hand sliced smoked salmon, cream cheese, tomato, onion, capers, dill, pepper, olive oil and lemon… A beautiful combination of flavors on top of one of the best bagels I’ve ever had. The burnt everything by Courage Bagels is a perfect combination of chewy and texture. Not using commercial yeast, every made by hand bagel is a simple yet beautiful piece of culinary art. From selling bagels at the farmers markets to pop-ups at Broome Street General Store the new outpost in Silver Lake’s Virgil Village is truly worth the wait on one of Los Angeles’ hippest queues.” – Adrianne Ho

How Model Adrianne Ho Starts Her Day For Highsnobiety

Adrianne Ho is many things. She’s a model, one well known in the streetwear world for her work for the likes of adidas, Nike and Riccardo Tisci (and, of course, the cover of Highsnobiety Issue 7). She’s a fashion designer, crafting technical but stylish workout gear under her own lifestyle and culture label Sweat the Style. She’s a certified IG goddess, with 734,000 followers at the time of writing. She’s a TV host, a director, a businesswoman — the list goes on.
But in everything Ho does, you can guarantee there will always be a focus on two things: health and style. Her Instagram feed bombards you with ‘fit pics and #fitspo. She makes working out—sometimes in Supreme, naturally—and eating healthily look cool and genuinely aspirational. The key to living the good life, she says, is getting it right between dawn and noon.
Read on to learn about how Ho uses meditation, workouts and lemon water to start her day in the best way possible.
What time do you wake up?
I recently moved to Silver Lake and have been getting up early to work on my new house. I’ve been waking up with the sun and birds because I’ve been so excited to get the day started.
Then what happens?
The first thing I do in the morning is meditate and try to clear my head. Then I’ll check my phone — I do a lot of business in Asia and the time difference is so extreme that there’s usually a lot of messages or requests that I need to respond to early.
Then I’ll relax and take in the views around me before setting a schedule for what I want to accomplish that day.
What’s on your breakfast table?
My diet is plant-based for the most part, but I have my splurges — as you can see on my Instagram! Generally, I start the day with room temperature lemon water. After that, if I’m not heading straight to a workout, I’ll have an almond milk matcha latte and oatmeal. I love the taste of matcha and it still gives me a little caffeine hit. I don’t drink regular milk, so I always order or make lattes with almond milk at home. I’ve also been getting into hemp and oat milk as a nice alternative.
What’s happening around you?
Well, I don’t watch TV but sometimes I’ll play some relaxing ambient music. After a little bit of work is done, I’ll usually go work out. If it’s an off day I’ll walk the Silver Lake Reservoir and go over tasks for the day; that could be approving designs, finalizing campaigns, working on film or TV concepts, or creating social media content.
How important is a solid morning routine for you?
The most important part of my routine starts right before I wake up: especially when traveling, I have to make sure I get at least 8 hours of sleep. It can be really difficult with jet lag and work schedules, but it just means cutting out idle time on the phone before going to sleep. I fly to Asia every month so the time difference is really tricky, and by the time I’m adjusted I have to go back to NYC or LA. Lots of water and sleep are really the most important for recovery.
What kind of workouts do you do in the morning?
I’m lucky enough at this point to have a trainer in every city I frequent. If I’m home, I’ll work out four or five days a week, usually in the morning. I regularly go to Barry’s Bootcamp and do weight training with my personal trainer Micah McKinley at Phys Ed. Studio.
I’ll also mix in muay thai, tennis, hiking, or some other group fitness classes to keep it interesting. I love going to classes or one-on-one training because it makes me push myself harder than I would if I was alone at a gym.
Why do you think we place so much importance in getting a good start to your day?
I think it’s because we always want to start strong — that’s applicable to everything. A little trick I set for myself is setting simpler, easier goals in the morning to give myself a sense of accomplishment, which then sets the tone for the rest of the day. Since I’m so busy when traveling, it’s important for me when I’m home to have a strict, methodical routine to get everything done until the next time I have to leave.
