EX­PERT VER­DICT

Women's Health (UK) - - PROMOTION -

WH nu­tri­tion­ist Eve Kalinik gives her ver­dict: ‘While it’s great to see Gemma hav­ing a hearty break­fast, she is eat­ing a lot of eggs. She could swap in a smoothie, which would help her pack in ex­tra veg­eta­bles. Sim­i­larly, in­stead of al­ways snack­ing on oats and al­mond milk, Gemma could con­sider buck­wheat or quinoa flakes with co­conut milk, plus berries for an­tiox­i­dants. She would also ben­e­fit from other oily fish in her diet – mack­erel, trout and sar­dines all pro­vide es­sen­tial omega-3 fatty acids and would give an al­ter­na­tive pro­tein source to chicken. Fer­mented foods such as un­pas­teurised cheese, miso, sauer­kraut and full-fat nat­u­ral or­ganic yo­gurt could also sup­port Gemma’s gut health, which is im­por­tant for her im­mune sys­tem and will en­sure she is best ab­sorb­ing other nu­tri­ents to keep her en­ergy lev­els high.’
