As a nutritionist, I believe in the power of 5 small meals/day to keep my blood sugars balanced.
I feel so much more energised and satisfied this way!
Here is a typical day on my plate:
Power Protein Smoothie:
1 scoop Nuzest/Amazonia protein powder
1/2 cup frozen berries
1/4 frozen banana
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp psyllium husk
1 tsp stevia granules or vanilla stevia drops
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup ice
1 cup almond milk
Blended in a high power blender. I love to top my smoothies with homemade granola.
I also love to eat my smoothies in a bowl!
Or alternatively I will have poached/scrambled organic eggs with sautéed coco oil and kale on homemade gluten-free/paleo toast
+ my 1x/day coffee – a piccolo!
Usually some herbal tea + slice up carrot/cucumber/fennel with some tahini/almond butter
Or 1-2 sugar-free protein balls
A very big leafy green salad. I adore rocket and iceberg lettuce as my base.
I add all my fav veggies: carrot, cucumber. fennel, avo, sweet potato, etc.
I love to add leftover veggies to my salad from the night before too.
I then add a portion of protein (palm size) – chicken breast/fish
Sometimes I’ll add a gluten-free grain such as quinoa or brown rice.
I love to have my Slim Down Smoothie
at this time – a thick protein smoothie with ice, almond milk, cinnamon and stevia + protein powder.
Or nori rolls with veggies and tahini
Grilled fish/chicken/grass fed meat that is marinated in lots of fresh herbs and spices + a side of roasted veggies (I loveeeee roasted cauliflower) and a green salad.
TIME TO REST. I enjoy a nighttime ritual – this is the time for a little herbal tea and rest – bath, read, relax.
I switch all my phones/computers off by 8pm for a restful snooze.
