Supermodel Miranda Kerr has a sizzling bikini body, thanks to a low-carb, gluten-free diet and daily workouts that include yoga and Pilates, she told Marie Claire Mexico.

Kerr, a longtime fitness fanatic, does yoga and Pilates every day. "I make sure I do half an hour of yoga in the morning so I’m feeling good," she said.

Miranda also runs and does ballet workouts, and enjoys walking on the beach whenever she can. Kerr said simple pleasures make her the happiest.

"I would have to say being a mother and spending time with my son, that really fills my heart with joy," Kerr said. "Being in nature, getting a fresh bouquet of flowers, taking a bath after a long day of work. The simple things add a lot of joy to my life."

Miranda, who's divorced from actor Orlando Bloom, has been in the headlines this week after Bloom reportedly took a swing at Justin Bieber at a nightclub in Ibiza, Spain. According to numerous press reports, Orlando got upset after Bieber allegedly suggested he had hooked up with Kerr in 2012.

Kerr has not commented on the incident, but in general tries to keep a Zen approach to life, always emphasizing the importance of a nutritious diet and regular exercise for both mental and physical health.

Miranda Meditates Daily: 'Happiness Is a Choice We Make'

Miranda, who prays and meditates daily, said she doesn't let emotional setbacks affect her upbeat outlook. "Happiness is a choice we make," she told Self. "No one can be consistently positive, but why not make the choice that makes you feel better rather than the one that drags you down?"

While it's her job to maintain a hot bikini body, Kerr is so passionate about fitness she said she would be a nutritionist if she didn't model. Not surprisingly, Miranda easily lost the 40 pounds she gained during her 2010 pregnancy with son Flynn.

Kerr usually starts off her mornings with a smoothie made of coconut water with goji berries, chia seeds, maca powder, spirulina and cacao. Her organic diet also includes a cold-pressed green juice every morning that features kale, spinach, cucumber and celery.

Breakfast is usually eggs with sauerkraut and avocado, or oatmeal with honey and goat's milk. For lunch, Kerr has grilled fish and a salad with kale, spinach, broccoli, fennel, avocado, pine nuts and feta cheese. And dinner is usually lentil soup and steamed vegetables or roasted chicken.

"Learn to savor fresh products and remember that food can be medicine, it's the ultimate fuel for the body," she said. "Living life in a balance is important. I try to be 80 percent healthy and 20 percent indulgent."
