Inspired by New York Magazine’s Grub Street Food Diet, we present a new column, “Celebrity Food Diaries.” Celebrities write down everything they eat over one week. Our first celebrity guest is current Vogue cover model and Instagram star, Kendall Jenner.

Today I have to be at LAX at 6 a.m. for a Marc Jacobs fitting in New York. I don’t have a lot of time to eat breakfast, but I basically have the same thing for breakfast every morning: one hard-boiled egg.
On the way to Marc’s studio, I grab lunch at one of my favorite Manhattan places. It’s called Marie’s and I got myself two hard-boiled eggs. They were done to perfection. Marie’s knows what’s up.
I met up with Justin Bieber for dinner. There were 10 of us at Carbone. Justin ordered all kinds of steak and pasta for the table, and he also ordered me a giant plate of hard-boiled eggs, cuz he’s such a thoughtful friend. I ate like, 15 of them I was so hungry from the shoot.

I had an early meeting with Tori Burch so I just housed a hard-boiled egg.
I didn’t eat lunch on my trip back to L.A. Starbucks was out of those snack packs that have the hard-boiled eggs in them.
I’ve been so busy lately I decided to stay in and cook dinner for myself. I boiled a pot of water and hard-boiled a dozen eggs. Then, I actually peeled six of them myself. I don’t get to cook so often so I’m all like, “Look at me! I’m a chef!”

I ate, surprise surprise, a leftover hard-boiled egg for breakfast.
For dinner I met up with Gigi Hadid at this new cocktail place that’s supposed to be to die for called Town and Bee in West Hollywood. I was so freaking disappointed. They didn’t have one hard-boiled egg-based cocktail on their menu. Like, what?

My guilty pleasure on Sundays is to stay in and order Seamless. The first time I tried to order off Seamless I didn’t understand it cuz there was no hard-boiled egg restaurant? I hate using my celebrity to get stuff, but we worked something out where I have a special Seamless app just for hard-boiled eggs.
I went over to Kim and Kanye’s for dinner. I was feeling a little adventurous. I tried cut-up hard-boiled eggs. They were actually pretty good!

I woke up early to go to a doctor’s appointment, and yeah, you guessed it, I had my routine hard-boiled egg for breakfast.
The doctor went great — he’s always all like, “I can’t believe you only ever eat hard-boiled eggs and you’re this healthy. I don’t know how your body is doing what it’s doing — I can’t find anything wrong with you.”
For dinner, it was Gigi’s birthday, so we went to Drai’s Hollywood and we had the VIP section all to ourselves. Things definitely got a little fuzzy at the end of the night, I must have had like 40 eggs, but I know I had my driver stop off at one of my fave diners on the way home so we could wash it all down with some good drunk food — another hard-boiled egg for me.

Oh. My. God. I wake up with a terrible egg hangover. I eat an HB for breakfast — hair of the dog.
Then I met Calvin Klein at Soho House for lunch. I’m a regular there. I love their presentation — they designed a specialty egg-rack just for me.
Dinner tonight was special. My boyfriend Harry and I were finally going to be in the same place again at the same time, so I hired David Chang to cook us a private dinner! It was amazing — he brought out course after course of hard-boiled eggs. He wanted to do all this elaborate stuff like poach the eggs or even scramble them, but I just felt like I wasn’t paying him $10,000 to make food I know I’m not going to like, you know? Needless to say, Harry loved it.
When we first started dating, Harry thought it was weird that I love hard-boiled eggs so much, but then he was like, “You’re so hot I don’t even care.” Isn’t that cute? I truly am blessed.
