Therese Kerr’s Day on a Plate makes Pete Evans’ look normal.
Editor’s Note: Over the weekend, Fairfax’s Sunday Life interviewed Miranda Kerr’s mother Therese Kerr about what she eats and drinks on a normal day.
The section, called My Day On a Plate, is a regular feature of the magazine, but never before has it garnered this much attention. And with a diet that consists like homemade kefir, reverse osmosis water and rooibos tea, it’s little wonder that it got everyone talking.

For anyone who still isn’t sure how to share what they eat without pissing off the internet, here is a handy guide – written by Alyx Gorman:
How to do a ‘My day on a plate’ without becoming a laughing stock.
1 – Write down what you eat in a day.
2 – If the word organic appears more than once, remove all instances except the most important.
3 – Nothing too foreign.
4 – Details matter. Don’t include any details about your preferred water filtration/nut softening/vegetable charming methods.
5 – Remember, this is a chance to showcase how normal you are.
6 – Log onto the Coles website and see what’s on special at the moment. Claim to eat that.
7 – Add up all the calories in your day. Make sure they add up to exactly 1800 so the Daily Mail can’t write an article about your eating disorder.
8 – If someone asks you to write a list of everything you eat, and you’re not in hospitality/food services, say no. You can’t win this.
9 – Unless you say you eat Vegemite on toast for breakfast.
10 – Just say you eat Vegemite on toast for breakfast.
