I get many emails and private messages asking what is my daily food intake. So I thought I would dedicate a post sharing with you what I eat during the day.
20 minutes before I eat anything I have a large glass of water with lemon to alkalise my body. I tend to have the same things for breakfast. Monday to Fridays I will have either oat or buckwheat porridge with almond milk and fruits or a smoothie with Shakeology which is a protein powder with vitamins and minerals. In my smoothie I will put 1banana, 1 scoop of shakeology, a handful of spinach and almond milk. Weekends I always have eggs, avocado with a rice cracker or rye bread.
I also have a 1 glass of water with wheatgrass powder or a fresh shot if I am in London.
I never really drink coffee as I don’t like the taste. I am probably the only person I know. I always have one cup of english breakfast tea with goats milk in the mornings.
I tend to have either half an avocado on a rice cracker or a handful of walnuts or almonds with strawberries or blueberries and a green juice.
This tends to vary. I eat anything from brown rice, brown rice pasta, spelt pasta and normal pasta with vegetables, fish or meat. I also have salad with chicken or steamed vegetables with fish or chickpeas and lentils. I always make sure I eat a lot of vegetables with my main meals.
I love hummus so I always have some with a carrot or an apple with 5 almonds. I tend to eat my dinner very early between 5-5.30pm so I do not really have a big snack.
In winter I tend to have vegetable soups with beans or steamed vegetables with oven baked salmon. In the summer I will have more salads with organic chicken breast, fish or legumes.
I eat very early as I practice intermittent fasting which I will go into more detail in my next post.
I eat like this 80% of the time however If I fancy a treat I will have one. I just never over indulge. If I feel like a biscuit I will have 1-2 not the whole pack, if I feel like cake I will have one slice not the whole cake. Once a week I will have a cheat meal. When I am in Italy I always have pizza once a week. I eat every 3-4 hours this is to balance blood sugar levels so you have the same amount of energy through out the day. I keep meals small. I don’t eat massive portions. This is so I do not place a strain on my liver and digestive system.
As with anything in life you need balance. You need to have a healthy relationship with food and enjoy every meal. Healthy doesn’t mean boring and of course you can still have your favourite foods.
