This is what 7 days of eating in my world looks like!
As mentioned, I don’t subscribe to any type of diet…I am advocate of whole foods and self care!
I use organic meats (or always free range), dairy and eggs and, wherever possible, consume organic fruits and vegetables.
My number one rule is to eat TONS of leafy greens everyday.
You will soon notice that I am a big fan of leftovers 🙂
P.S for the most part, my family eats this too.

I generally have 1-2 snacks a day, which could be:
- 1-cup natural yoghurt, 2 tsps. LSA mix, ½ cup strawberries, 1 kiwifruit (diced).
- 2 x chocolate tahini balls (see recipe)
- 2x brown rice cakes, 4 tbsps. Hummus
- 1 boiled egg
- 1 handful of raw nuts (cashews, walnuts, almonds, brazil nuts, macadamias)
My life is busy! These snacks keep me going.
As mentioned earlier, I don’t strive for nutritional perfection (ha!, doesn’t exist and makes for a boring existence trying), but I do view food as a fuel to power the rest of my life.
