How I eat
At work, my go-to is porridge – I’ve had to ease it into my life to be healthier. I have it with chia seeds and sultanas. I could eat boiled eggs with white pepper every day; I love them. At home, I boil them while I’m in the shower, and eat them on my way to the golf course – I’m a keen amateur golfer with a handicap of 8. I drink decaf black coffee – on the show I have one every hour.
If I’m playing golf, I tend just to grab a banana, sometimes a vegetable soup. At work, I’ll go to the gym then get tuna dragon rolls from Itsu, or prawns and calamari tandoori from M&S. Lunch is just fuel; there’s no elegance to it.
I don’t really snack: if it’s put in front of me, I will eat it all. I love dark chocolate and peanut-butter M&Ms. To drink, herbal teas. And I’m partial to a lovely glass of fizz.
Dinner is a different story. I love a sit-down dinner, and plan ahead. I’m fussy about provenance, and portion control is difficult. I eat more than my husband and he’s 5ft 11in. I can’t bear if someone has more food than me ... I don’t know why. I love cooking and I’m good at it – I tend to do big, one-pot meals, so I can talk to my friends and not flap around the room.
