Food + Eating

  • Q: What kind of diet do you follow? What is your eating philosophy?

    A: You could say I’m a Flexitarian although I don’t follow any specific label or “diet.” Instead I focus on eating wholesome nutrient-rich foods, low processed sugars/carbs, whole grains, loads of vegetables and fruit, healthy fats, fermented foods, good sources of animal protein like wild salmon, organic chicken and free-range eggs. I like to say I follow the 80/20 method, where I eat healthy 80% of the time while leaving 20% for sweets and wine. Eating intuitively without restrictions has allowed me to create a healthy and balanced relationship with food and really enjoy what I’m putting into my body.

  • Q: What supplements do you take?

    A: I look at supplements as exactly what they’re called, supplements to my regular food and not replacements. I typically will take a multivitamin, vitamin C, vitamin D, Magnesium, Iron and a probiotic. During the winter months, I also like to up my omega 3 intake and will take a flax, hemp or fish oil supplement. I also like to add collagen powder and plant-based protein powder to my morning smoothie. 

  • Q: What is a typical day of eating like for you?

    A: If you follow me on social media you’ll know that I start almost every morning off with a green smoothie! To see a typical day of eating, watch my What I Eat in A Day Videos!

  • Q: What is your number 1 favourite recipe on your blog?

    A: Gluten-Free Fluffy Pancakes hands down! If I could eat these every Sunday I would not be mad about it. 

  • Q: What do you put inside your green smoothies?

    A: Although I think variety is key when it comes to eating healthy I typically follow the same template when blending up a green smoothie. My go tos are: baby spinach, cucumber, ginger root, frozen banana, frozen mango, flaxseed, cinnamon, spirulina powder, vanilla plant-based protein powder, lots of ICE (I like my smoothies extra cold!), unsweetened oat milk and filtered water. You can also download my FREE “How to Make the Perfect Green Smoothie Guide” HERE
