IF 2016 WAS THE YEAR OF GIGI, LET’S DECLARE 2017 THE YEAR OF TOAST. Yes, we are talking about the one-named supermod-, er, dog-lebrity Toast Meets World who is conquering the fashion and social media worlds with one Insta post at a time. She’s posed with the likes of Karlie Kloss, Helena Christensen and Carolyn Murphy to name a few. In the past year, she’s snagged a book deal, been featured in People magazine and even earned a coveted TV ad during last week’s Super Bowl. So you could say she’s kind of a big deal. We caught up with the doggy diva herself who was on a rare break between her busy schedule of shoots and dog acupuncture who talked diet, healers and salmon pills. Yum.
How would you describe you approach to your own diet and well-being?
Well, you don’t get to be ageless like Pharrell unless you take care of yourself. I eat vegan, take vacation often and get about 21 to 22 hours of sleep a night.
Take us through a day in the life of meals from wake to bedtime.
I get woken up with a light massage and then carried outside to do my business. Privacy please! I refuse to walk. I get carried and do a little light Swim Walking (otherwise known as “swalking”) in the air. Then I get back and usually take a 6 to 7 hour nap. My healer, my facialist or someone else from my “wellness” team usually comes over then. After that I have to get my hair done by my stylist Harry Josh because I usually have a function to go to.
Do you have a daily health practice that you adhere to?
I drink whatever Renee Russo drinks in Thomas Crowne Affair every morning.
Do you avoid certain things in your diet?
Well, I don’t have to worry about candy rotting my teeth because I don’t have any but I don’t eat it anyway because I have to fit into a doggy sample size.
What are your favorite self-care rituals?
My entire life is one big self-care cycle.
What is your approach towards fitness, do you have a favorite workout?
Carlos Leon is my trainer. He swalks me around for about 30 min before we meditate.
What are your top three favorite natural products?
Beauty Dust from Moon Juice because the packaging is pretty. Salmon pills because I love the after burp. And anything from the GOOP beauty line. Gwyneth is my queen.
