Health & Fitness - - Loving My Body -

Meet Alice ‘I al­ways start with a cof­fee and a pro­tein-packed break­fast to fuel my body for the day ahead. I’m a huge fan of eat­ing eggs for break­fast, so a typ­i­cal meal would be but­tery scram­bled eggs on toast with some greens.’

‘My morn­ings can be busy with clients but I’ll al­ways have a snack at around 11am to tide me over un­til lunch. A favourite is Greek yo­ghurt with fruit or a hand­ful of nuts.’

Lunches are sim­ple. I base each one around a good source of car­bo­hy­drate and pro­tein, which I usu­ally make in ad­vance. Grilled salmon, turkey or chicken with sweet potato and veg won’t win awards for pre­sen­ta­tion but does the trick.’

‘By 4pm, I usu­ally han­ker af­ter an­other snack. I use pro­tein shakes for con­ve­nience, so hav­ing one of those in the af­ter­noon en­sures I’m feel­ing full un­til din­ner.’

‘I eat din­ner at about 8pm. Like lunch, the meal is based around a good source of pro­tein, car­bo­hy­drates and fats, as well as loads of veg. A typ­i­cal meal would be grilled salmon with whole­grain rice, roasted turmeric spiced cau­li­flower and fresh chopped co­rian­der.’

‘Af­ter din­ner, I al­ways fancy a sweet treat, so I fin­ish with a dessert. My favourite is Greek yo­ghurt with frozen rasp­ber­ries and nut but­ter driz­zled on top. It tastes like ice cream and is the best way to end the day!’
