“I love to start the day with overnight oats with grated apple and cinnamon or poached apple in cinnamon with a dollop of coconut yoghurt. Apples are a great way to start the day as they are full of pectin, which is good in so many ways. I always follow this up with a Plenish ginger shot as it improves my digestion and gives me a quick energy boost. I try and drink at least a litre of water before lunchtime and get my water intake done at the beginning of the day.”
“If I’m at home, I love a tofu salad with some chopped chillies, I tend to use whatever is in the fridge, really, but it’s always a protein with salad. I often have a green juice or a smoothie, too, as it helps me pack in extra veggies during the day. If I’m out and on the go, I try to pop into a salad bar and grab something similar. I love Good Life Eatery, Poke the Bear and Juice Baby on the King’s Road, which is normally where I end up if I’m out.”
“My absolute favourite is roasted cauliflower and some leafy green vegetables. When cooking for the family, I love making veggie burgers with coriander and chilli on a bed of pureed butternut squash. I love all vegetables – roasted, steamed, baked, but I try to avoid starchy vegetables like potatoes as I prefer green beans, spinach, pak choi and vegetables. I eat as many vegetables as I can as they make me feel great. For dessert, I love winding down with my favourite Plenish Savour Juice. It’s chocolate-y, creamy and full of plant-powered goodness for a healthy treat.”
My Healthy Hacks
“I try to leave five hours between each meal, and I don’t usually eat after 8.30 pm unless I’m going out for dinner.”
“Two days per week, I have cheat days. I love a good Sunday Roast and a curry and a glass of wine on a Friday night, but I try and go back to my healthy way of eating by Monday as it makes me feel great and full of energy.”
“If I have overindulged at the weekend, I enjoy starting the week with a Plenish Juice Cleanse to rest and reset my system.”
