From noni juice to dark chocolate, click through the gallery below to see the noshes of choice for Karlie, Gigi, Kendall, and more—and bookmark your favorites for the next time you're feeling hangry.

Kendall Jenner

Though Jenner likes to indulge in pizza, burgers, and fried chicken, she's also savvy at cleaning her diet up when need be. Case in point: During fashion week, Jenner snacks on apples and Kusmi's Detox Tea ($21).

Liu Wen

Got some summer trips on your agenda? Borrow this preflight tip from Wen, as told to Elle.com: "Just before I board a plane, I buy several bottles of juices that contain lots of vitamin C and make an effort to not eat oily or high-calorie foods—especially on longer flights—because your body might not be able to digest them as well, making your face more swollen." Satisfying the needs of your appetite and your skin? Win-win.

Devon Windsor

The blond beauty abides by an "everything in moderation" diet, but amid the snaps of pizza and ice cream on her Instagram feed, you'll also find fresh coconut water, berries, and watermelon.

Gigi Hadid

Jasmine Tookes

"Apples and peanut butter," the Victoria's Secret Angel tells StyleCaster. "I love peanut butter!"

To stay nourished on the go, Skriver likes to keep a bag of nuts in her purse, she tells AOL. Oh, and her more indulgent option? Chocolate, natch.

Karlie Kloss

In addition to loving Instagram's favorite snack, avocado toast, Kloss is all about cookies—or should we say Klossies. Her gluten-free, nutrition-rich collaboration with Momofuku is still going strong and has also provided more than a million meals to those in need with its proceeds.

Alessandra Ambrosio

The statuesque Brazilian tells The Edit that she has sworn off cleanses after using a punishing diet to get her post-baby body back into Victoria's Secret shape. Instead, she allows herself to eat a little bit of everything, including her favorite, antioxidant-packed snack: dark chocolate.

Lindsey Ellingson

Rather than just give us an idea of what she eats daily, Ellingson gave us a look inside her fridge last year—and amid her husband's chocolate syrup and her beauty products, there are plenty of healthy snack options to be found. "I rely on green cold-pressed juices on days when I haven't squeezed in enough vegetables," she says, citing Organic Avenue and Juice Press as her go-to's. She also loves avocado toast and fresh fruit.

Martha Hunt

Hunt is a fan of almond butter, by the spoonful or in a smoothie. (Psst—her favorite recipe sounds epic.)

Miranda Kerr

Self-professed health nut Kerr is a wealth of wellness inspo, down to the way she appeases her cravings. "I like to have lots of yummy, healthy treats," she told us earlier this year. "There are lots of fresh berries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries. I'm very much into berries, as you can tell. I always have lots of greens, like kale and cucumber and baby spinach and celery. You’ll find aloe vera in my fridge. You'll find noni juice in my fridge."

Sara Sampaio

Sampaio doesn't like to restrict herself (are you sensing a theme here?), favoring eats like pancakes, pizza, and milkshakes. But the VS Angel tells Vogue.com that she'll have a banana when the afternoon hunger pangs commence.

Taylor Hill

Though Hill adamantly professed her love for Hot Cheetos when we spoke to her last month, she maintains a steady balance with snacks like raw almonds and smoothies.
