how do you eat?
i would say my diet is flexible. i’m not strict but i like to be healthy.
my general rule is keep the fridge & cupboards at home full of healthy foods & when i eat out i can indulge a bit.
i need to think about being efficient too now that i have an 11-month-old boy & i try to prepare meals we can both eat during the day.
what do you eat?
before i had eddie i surfed most mornings before work & had a huge appetite. i could eat almost anything, & large quantities, while staying the same size. i’ve had to consciously rein in my food consumption now that i’m doing a lot less cardio.
i eat lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, eggs & fish. i try not to eat too much pasta or bread & if i want something sweet i try to bake it.
eggs for breakfast, fresh fruit & vegetable juices, sushi & homemade gourmet burgers.
i love discovering new salads & i could eat avocado with almost anything.
i also love the homemade pizza my partner makes me. i also love his special salmon with sweet potato mash & asparagus … so yummy.
soda water & lemon juice, ginger beer for a treat, lady grey tea or a cold corona & lemon at sunset after a big surf session.
i love cadbury flakes or any dark chocolate with fruit & nuts. i also love nutella on toast.
to regain the physical strength i had before pregnancy. also to maintain fitness & a healthy diet within my new busy lifestyle as a working mum, which is more difficult than i anticipated.

i met up with some other mammas at the beach at 5am for a quick surf. the dads dropped the babies off on their way to work at about 6.20am & we played with the kids at the beach for another hour before heading home for breakfast.
i did chores while eddie slept. when he woke up we went to our neighbour’s house for a play date & cups of tea in the backyard. then it was home for eddie’s second sleep & more domestic duties for me.
in the afternoon we had water play in our garden with eddie on the slip & slide.
a friend visited on her way home from work. then i had dinner at home with my man after eddie went to sleep.
