Here’s what our founder eats in a day to live and feel well
I’ve become a morning person after years spent doing the early school run, so I’m usuallyawake by 6AM. I have a thermos of hot water with lemon and ginger beside my bed that I prepare the night before so I can drink it following my meditation.
I’ll have breakfast at around 11AM, which is usually one of my homemade chia puddings, or I’ll blend WelleCo’s Nourishing Protein in Chocolate with home-made almond or oat milk for a satisfying, delicious protein shake.
Before every meal I prime my gut with a teaspoon of Ion Biome, which also helps me feel focused with clarity of mind. For lunch, one of my go-to meals is a big bowl of nourishing, sprouted raw live greens (so much goodness). I’ll take a handful of natural organic pea sprouts with another handful of natural organic sunflower sprouts, then add a pinch of broccoli, some alfalfa sprouts and half an avocado. I drizzle a mix of lemon juice, avocado and coconut aminos, otherwise I enjoy a tahini dressing – manuka honey, apple cider vinegar and a handful of sprouted seeds over the top.
I snack on The Super Elixir™ and Nourishing Protein (in Chocolate or Vanilla), in a smoothie or I make a mousse. I’ll often blend half an avocado left over from lunch with the chocolate protein and water, which makes a delicious, creamy chocolate mousse. I also love Dr. Simone Laubscher’s favourite snack, which is a scoop of the vanilla protein, a scoop of The Super Elixir™ Unflavoured and almond milk. Blitz it all together in a Nutribullet and you’ve got the perfect 3pm snack to help balance blood sugar levels when you feel a slump."
For dinner, I vary between vegetables, sprouts, beans, as well as nut cheeses, vegan pate, delicious vegan pastas and soups, and some sprouted bread or crackers.
I do have a sweet tooth, but thankfully having The Super Elixir™ and Nourishing Protein each day has really curbed my sugar cravings. If I am at a restaurant and it’s a special occasion, I will usually opt for anything on the menu with chocolate. I also love vegan ice-cream, my home-made dark chocolate (I keep it in the freezer) and I have a soft spot for Miami’s key lime pies.
I wind down by making myself a cup of WelleCo’s Sleep Welle Calming Tea to relax and quiet my mind before bed. I end my day with deep breathing techniques (the Wim Hof method is great) and writing a gratitude list (whilst wearing my nigh time blue light blocking glasses) – it helps set my subconscious to rest, restore and revive while my mind and body is asleep.
