Next for day on a plate is the little pocket rocket Lizzie Bland! Some of you will know her as the founder of leanbeanfitness(serious girl boss!)- an amazing fitness studio in Bondi and Darlinghurst (check it out asap!) Lizzie is always bouncing with energy – want to know why? Besides sneaking in some sweaty workouts in her day she also keeps fuelled the right way! I resonate with Lizzie’s diet which revolves around lost of protein and veggies with great high protein snacks! Hope she gives you some healthy inspo below
Always porridge with soy milk (mainly because i like the creaminess of it) followed by a bowl of melon and some peanut butter. I say some as its sometimes a tablespoon but often leads to a few of them.
Fruit, a bag of salt and vinegar fava beans (happy snack company) or sweet & salt popcorn. If i need a bit of energy ill have a peak chocolate bar which has caffeine in it… I’ve actually given up coffee as it was giving me headaches so i probably shouldn’t have it but the chocolate goodness overtakes the headache 🙂
Lunch will be some sort of protein and/or veggies. I love having something like a grilled chicken salad, or some tuna with leftover roast veggies.
Im a bit of a lazy chef and normally rely on my boyfriend Jonathan to cook a good veggie bolognaise or curry on a Sunday that’ll cover me for most of the week. When I’m needing a quick nutritious meal with minimal effort, I’ll steam a load of green veg/whatever i’ve got and mix it up with a can of sardines or mackrel in tomato sauce (im pretty sure spring water ones would be the healthier option :-|)…but yeah, not really a recipe as such…but this is my day on a plate!
Chocolate – any kind but always go for 70%+
If im feeling at all hungry before bed, ill have a glass of almond/soy milk as I don’t sleep well if im hungry 🙂
