My Day on a Plate: Narelle From Food for Health

This week's My Day on a Plate come from Narelle Plapp, naturopath and founder of Food For Health.

I am married with 2 children: Jack 5 years old and Millie 12 months old. I live in bayside Melbourne and have been running my business for 10 years. I have always been an active person and big believer in a healthy lifestyle. I play basketball, walk most days along the beach and go to the gym a couple of times a week. My weakness is Japanese food. Here is my average day on a plate:

7am

Breakfast is my Liver cleansing muesli, bircher style. I soak it overnight with coconut water…then the next morning top it with yoghurt, squeeze of lemon juice and sprinkle it with a spoonful of teff and chia seeds.Or, I have my acai berry smoothie bowl. I have a weak latte each morning on the way to the office, then for the rest of the day sip on hot water.

10.30am

My Mid morning snack is usually my famous Raw Bounty Bites

1pm

Lunch is either sushi, banana smoothie (addicted!) or a bowl of tuna, mixed with corn, cannellini beans and red kidney beans. If I am peckish throughout the day I will have one of my muesli bars or goodness mix which is a mix of almonds, cranberries, coconut chips and sunflower seeds.

5pm

Pre dinner I love hummus with crackers. And a cheeky glass of wine!

6.30pm

My dinner go to’s are: chicken wraps (kids love them) my famous lamb salad: lamb back strap marinated with a herb sauce. With fetta, roma tomatoes, pine nuts, avocado, butter beans tossed together with ice berg lettuce to make a delicious power bowl!

Here is my average exercise week:

Sunday: walk with the family along the beach

Monday: 6.30am Walk the dog

Tuesday: 6am Session with my PT

Wednesday: basketball

Thursday: 6am session with my PT.

Friday: Big walk along with the beach path with the dog
