LINDY KLIM, BUSINESSWOMAN AND MOTHER OF 4, SHARES HER DAY IN FOOD WITH DR SIMONE LAUBSCHER PHD.
Breakfast: Banana and berry smoothie with soy milk, Goji berries, raw cocoa nibs, coconut oil, flaxseed and honey bee pollen.
Dr Simone Laubscher PhD (DL): Sounds great. If possible swap out the soy milk for plant or nut milk. The soy industry can be GMO (genetically modified) these days. I would also add alkalising greens like WelleCo SUPER ELIXIR, so your body has optimum fuel and functional support.
Mid-morning snack: Soy chai latte.
DL: I would try to change this milk once again for the reasons above.
Lunch: Salmon sashimi or salad or another smoothie.
DL: Ensure the salmon sashimi is from a very busy restaurant, and not the supermarket due to the potential parasites.
Afternoon snack: A banana.
DL: High in potassium but high GI too, so if banana makes you feel good and doesn't make you tired or crave sugar an hour or two later then keep it. If you do feel like that, add in a handful of almonds or walnuts.
Dinner: Grilled fish or chicken and salad, seafood pasta or stir fried red rice with vegetables and a glass of red wine.
DL: I would choose organic chicken to reduce added hormones and if having fish, ensure it is line caught and not farmed. Because gluten can act like glue in your intestines, opt for rice pasta instead. Red wine is high in bioflavonoids but still contains alcohol. If you want to have a red wine, you really must take WelleCo SUPER ELIXIR so you keep yourself detoxed daily so you enjoy the fun things in life.

Water: I drink a lot, usually 2 litres.
DL: 2 litres is ideal so this is great.
Sleep: I have a new-born, so my sleep pattern at the moment is about as disrupted as it can ever be. Short of torture!
DL: I once had 3 babies under 5 years-old so I understand! If your baby is waking too much in the night, maybe they need a heavier feed at night at about 10pm. So by this I mean if you are breast feeding, then you may need to pump in the first mornings milk so you get the real full cream milk and give 4oz of this super charged milk to keep the baby asleep longer. If using formula, add a scoop or two to the ratio. My son was super hungry and he was my first born and I didn't work this out until my daughter came along 18 month later :( After working this out, 8 weeks in I had both my girls sleeping 6 hours a night!
