How I eat
I start with a healthy concoction: an iron tonic, an aloe vera and neem, and fresh juice (greens and apple). And then I promptly have a double espresso – just to retoxify the system. I went four years without coffee, but I like it so much that I find it really hard to avoid.
Salmon, a Greek salad, some soup. If I’m feeling wild, a spicy tuna sandwich. I used to be very careful about bread, but my friend Dr Ellie Cannon tells me few people are actually gluten-intolerant and, in moderation, bread is fine.
At 11am I often have some muesli, with berries and milk – oat or normal; I’m not fussy. The 4pm slump is a killer, though – I’m just craving sugar to get me through. I’ll have a banana, or some dark chocolate with ginger. I drink lots of herbal tea. I like normal tea, too.
At the moment I’m really into the Detox Kitchen Bible cookbook.
I did MasterChef a few years ago – I wasn’t very good, but it taught me to be adventurous in my cooking.
