Here is a sneak peak into the fuel behind Lorna’s busy schedule!
5:00am –Wake Up##
I have my ‘Wake up smoothie’ before hitting the gym.
- 1 shot of espresso that has been in the fridge overnight
- ½ a banana
- 1 scoop of chocolate Protein powder (I like The Beauty Chef or Happy Way)
- Coconut water or filtered water (cold)
- 1 glass of ice (make a couple of trays if you are in a hotel and store them in a glass in the freezer section of the fridge or call room service)
- 1 sachet of collagen powder (ProPlenish is my favourite)
Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend for 30-40 seconds.
- Water to ice ratio is entirely up to you – Bill likes his super icey so he can eat it with a spoon and I like mine at milk shake consistency
- For those of you who are not so much ‘Morning People’ you can add another shot of espresso for more of a caffeine hit!
- Do not put hot coffee in your blender…it explodes!
- Make sure that everyone is awake in the room before you turn the blender on and wake them up in the worst possible way!
6:00am – Exercise##
I love mixing it up between yoga, strength training, a hike or a hitt workout
7:30am – Breakfast##
After working out, my go-to breakfast is either a bowl of oats, smashed avo on toast with pink Himalayan sea salt or a homemade vegetable frittata.
12:00pm – Lunch##
I love a big leafy salad with some form of lean protein like chicken or turkey.
3:00pm – Snacks##
I always keep a stash of healthy snacks in my handbag or at my desk to nibble on whenever I get hungry. My go-tos are raw nuts, fresh fruit and protein powder.
6.30pm – Dinner##
I try to have dinner early so I'm not digesting food when I go to bed. At the moment I am loving my take on healthy fish and chips - which is grilled salmon, homemade sweet potato chips and a green side salad.
- 2 x fillets white fish (medium size)
- 3 tablespoons almond meal
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Sweet Potato Wedges:###
- 1 medium sized kumura
- 1/2 tablespoon cajun seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
Preheat the oven to 180C.
- For the chips, cut the kumura up into small wedge sizes.
- Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix so everything is evenly coated.
- Place onto a lined oven tray and into the oven for 20 minutes or until cooked.
- While the potato is cooking, prepare the fish.
- For the fish, mix together the dry ingredients. Dip the fish in your crumb to get a nice even coat.
- Place the fish on a lined baking tray and into the oven for 15 minutes, or until the fish is cooked.
Serve with fresh lemon, your preferred sauce and a side salad!
7.30pm – Treats!##
I have a huge sweet tooth and will usually have something sweet every night, I find a few squares of good quality dark chocolate does the trick!
