Ah, celebrities. They’re always touting the benefits of some hard-to-pronounce magical root, or guzzling smoothies packed with fantastical powders promising outlandish results, or proclaiming that one particular food or another made them glow from the inside out, or shouting from the rooftops the incredible healing powers of, like, maca. And though we don’t doubt that celebs stay healthy and happy with the help of their many superfood obsessions, we honestly don’t have the time (nor the money) to keep up with their ongoing menu. It’s too much.

That said, it is fun to read about the latest celebrity favorite, and watch the superfood saga from afar. These days, “superfoods” really run the gamut—we’ve heard celebs kneel at the alter of just about everything, from the lowly spinach leaf and the salmon filet to the more highfalutin noni juice and cordyceps powder. So, we rounded some of our favorites up, so you too can discover stars’ fave superfoods. Enjoy—just don’t try them all at once.

Kerr counts noni juice, goji berries, chia seeds, and maca powder as integral parts of staying healthy.

Paltrow has been vocal about her love for a smoothie that includes maca, ashwagandha, ho shou wu, and cordyceps powder. Have at it, folks.

“I like ginger shots,” Gomez told James Corden. “I actually like to eat a piece of ginger every morning. It’s so good.”

We already knew that Beckham likes to eat salmon every single day (I mean … same?) but she also apparently has been known to snack on bladderwhack.

RiRi's trainer Harley Pasternak revealed that her diet is loaded with superfoods. "A typical breakfast would be almond butter on toast with fruit, and through the day she'll have small meals like quinoa with fruit and veg, a Greek yoghurt and some nuts to keep hunger at bay," he said. "Then something like spicy cod and avocado salad for dinner." Sounds like she's giving Victoria Beckham a run for her money.

For something a little more accessible, Ciara swears by her go-to salad, which includes "romaine lettuce, grilled chicken, feta cheese, and cucumbers."

Apparently, Jenner is a huge fan of matcha green tea. Antioxidants galore.

Bey invested in something called WTRMLN WTR, which we're pretty sure is just watermelon water with no vowels. "I invested in WTRMLN WTR because it’s the future of clean, natural hydration," she said. Her feelings about the drink (that is apparently high in choline, which aids in learning and memory in developing babies—hello, pregnant with twins!) are super lofty as well. "This is more than an investment in a brand, it's an investment in female leaders, fitness, American farmers and the health of people and our planet," Bey said. Whew.

Madge invested $1.5 million in coconut water, so—safe to say she's a fan of the hydrating and electrolyte-filled drink.

Of course, someone had to vote for acai. You can't hit up a breakfast joint these days without an acai bowl being thrust in your face, and Hadid is here for it. "I love acai bowls," she said. "We always took them to the beach growing up, so I guess it's a little piece of home."

We're not sure hummus really counts as a superfood, but Monáe has given a shout-out to the chickpea dip as a standby tour snack. "I try to eat a lot of salads while I’m traveling, but when I need a light, fluffy snack, I reach for my pita chips and hummus," she said.

"Eat it then popeye," Ora tweeted, along with a link to a Instagram of a bowl of spinach. Though she has since deleted the Instagram (perhaps spinach doesn't go with her Insta-scheme after all), her tweet lives on. And so does her love for spinach, we'd guess, which she also documented during a Self cover shoot.

Gisele only eats superfoods, so—hard to pick just one here. We'll go with the thing she starts her day with—sorry, the thing she "faces her day head-on" with. "Around 6 a.m., we face the day head-on with a glass of warm water and pressed lemon to balance the body's alkaline levels and kick-start the digestive system," she said. Cool, same.
