how do you eat?
i try to keep my diet as clean as possible, enjoy healthy fresh foods & buy in-season produce. my days are long so i try to plan & prepare my week’s meals in advance. when i’m organised i’m great, but if i don’t have time to prepare properly the wheels can fall off quite easily.
what do you eat?
i function at my best when i stick to more of a paleo-style diet, but i adapt it to work for me. i try to eliminate processed carbs, sugars & most dairy but eat everything else. normally alcohol is off-limits during the week but i relax on the weekend & enjoy dining out with my hubby-to-be & friends. japanese, greek & indian are my faves.
seasonal fruits & vegetables (esp. cherries, grapes, blueberries, kumera & mushrooms), slow-roasted lamb shoulder, pork belly, fresh fish & shellfish.
sparkling mineral water, red wine, french champagne, coffee & green tea.
dark chocolate, red wine & vanilla ice cream.
always to exercise more! & drink more water.
friday july 18, 2014
i woke at 5.30am & did a quick tidy-up around the house as my mum is visiting for the weekend. i was in the office by 8am & worked til 4pm – an early finish – so i could collect mum from the airport. we headed home via the butcher & green grocer then prepared dinner while catching up. my partner arrived home with exciting news so we celebrated by popping some french bubbles. exhausted from a very big week (& a few drinks), i went to bed around 10pm.
