EAT FOR THE ROAD

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SUNDAY FIT -

WITH a ca­reer that can see her on the other side of the city — or the country — at the end of a work­ing day, Lara spends a lot of time out­side her food comfort zone. But she says care­ful plan­ning helps her re­sist the lure of the drive-through.

“I’m very con­scious of what’s good for me,” she says. “I know I func­tion far bet­ter when I eat more fish and less bread, for ex­am­ple, but lifestyle and work can some­times get in the way of that.

“I hate to ad­mit it, but when I was preg­nant, I did pull into the drive-through be­cause I felt so sick and I just wanted to eat bad food. But now I’m into boiled eggs or roast veg­eta­bles that I’ve put into con­tain­ers to take with me.

“But I love fish, and my go-to take­away is sushi. We cook a lot at home as well, which is mostly try­ing to get the ve­g­ies into the boys. If I can get them to eat broc­coli then I feel like I’m win­ning at life.”
