A day on a nutritionist’s plate! See what I eat!
My daily diet varies week to week as I like to change it up and want to avoid getting bored of the same thing but honestly my diet is pretty simple and I only change a few things here and there to keep it interesting 😉 I think that when people here the word nutritionist or health coach they assume that I must have a perfect, clean diet and honestly sometimes I feel a teeny tiny bit of that pressure but for me its all about balance and that means been able to enjoy a decadent dessert with my man or cocktails with my girlfriends, that’s what health is about not restricting yourself but giving yourself the “naughty” stuff in moderation and the “good” stuff in abundance!
So here is an inside look on my plate!
On rising I always drink a whole lemon sometimes with 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar, dash of cinnamon & half tsp. of honey with hot water. This is a great way to wake up your digestion system & your taste buds as its quite potent and create a lovely alkaline state for your body!
I followed this with a bowl of porridge, which you see lots on my instagram! It’s a favorite of mine as its super filling, quick, easy and can always create new combinations!
* Some mornings I’ll also have a fresh squeezed juice which I’ll have before breakfast and then again later as a snack! Didn’t have one on this day but I’m a big juice fan so wanted to share 🙂 Usually green apple, cucumber, carrot, beetroot, lemon.
I’m obsessed with tea so before reaching for a snack I usually have a big cup and Pukka is my favorite brand, so many amazing herbal blends to boost your health!
I made up a big batch of simple green curry with brown rice and loads of vegetables with raw cashews for added protein, which I’ll have again tomorrow! I was lazy and used a pre made curry paste and combined it with half coconut milk and water. A good trick to reduce excess sugars is to use half or just less of the servings suggested on sauces!
After lunch is usually when the sweet tooth kicks in and most of the time I have some of my homemade cookies for a healthy option, otherwise I’ll have a piece of fruit or square of dark chocolate! Today was one of my oatmeal cookies (recipe here) and another cup of Pukka Refresh tea.
I just made up a simple omelet with spinach, mushrooms and avocado with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar! I always follow dinner with an herbal digestive aide tea which is also a great alternative to dessert but I’m been completely honest I also had another oatmeal cookie!
I don’t exercise everyday and think rest days are very important for your body and mind but I definitely aim to do some form of exercise 5 times a week, it take a few times to get into the habit but honestly once you do you crave it!!! Today I did a 30-minute weight session followed by a Zumba class, which I’m addicted to do and strongly suggest you try a class if you haven’t before!
I hope this day on my plate helped give you some insight into a healthy balanced diet and see that it is not at all restricted! This is the exact type of diet you will be eating on the BMB Commitments except minus the cookies (sorry) so you can see you will be completely satisfied and nourished! And once you finish the commitment you can add some cookies 😉
