Breakfast? Whats you’re morning ritual and culinary favourites?
First things first, I always start the day with some yoga stretches and a little meditation, mantra time. It can be as short as 5 minutes if Its just one of those days or up to half an hour. Then I pop the kettle on while I make my breakfast bowl, usually all greens, aloevera, coconut water, acai, and lots of powders and oils, flaxseed, psyllium, chia, I mix it up and throw lots of nuts on the top! Then by the time that’s whizzed up and made my Hot water is boiled and I fill that with apple cider vinegar, lemon and cayenne pepper. Best start to the day!
Often a banana if I’m rushing around or if I have time I’ll whiz up another green smoothie but mix it with berries, mango,pineapple or banana so it’s different.
Lunch. Are you a big day-time eater or?
Yes, I have to eat regularly or I can’t function! Lunch is usually eggs, mushrooms and greens or some kind of yummy veggie dish, preferably warm.
Snacker? Afternoon Treats?
YES! I’m obsessed with seaweed. It’s such a yummy treat. Or I’ll cut up some strawberries.
Dinner… and, are your mellow night-timer or a party gal?
I mix it up! Mostly a mellow night-timer but on occasion I love to dance under the moonlight!! Dinner depends on whether I’m going out or at home, if at home I’ll usually have soup as it’s nice and light in my belly or roast veggies is always super easy and great to keep for the next day!
Dessert… Go-on tell us about your sweet tooth…
I can’t go past raw organic peanut butter, especially when I get to grind it myself! I love cutting up banana and warming it in a pan then mixing it with chia seeds and honey. It makes the sweetest desert bowl. Have that with home made cashew milk warmed with some cinnamon and you’ll have the happiest belly and such a good sleep!
