My Day On A Plate: Sarah Todd

Today's My Day On A Plate comes from Sarah Todd a 2014 Master Chef contestant, model and most importantly a food lover.

My day always starts with a wholesome breakfast providing the energy needed for the busy day ahead. I have a 3 year-old son so I like to sneak in as many nutrients as possible. Throughout the day I like to keep my meals balanced and one of my favourite go-to meals for lunch is a quinoa salad. I like to use whichever vegetables are in season and in my fridge at the time. I’ll have a smoothie if I get the chance to make it during the day as a snack or I’ll have a piece of fruit and nuts in my bag if I’m on the run. I finish off with a cooked dinner; it is much easier for the body to digest. One dish I love at the moment is this celery soup.

BREAKFAST

Asparagus and onion omelet served with a rocket, pear and walnut salad, drizzled with balsamic glaze

LUNCH

Quinoa salad with steamed vegetables, toasted slivered almonds, currants, feta and a simple dressing of apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and mustard

SNACK

Smoothie if I am working from home. Banana, organic protein powder, spinach and mint is a go-to.
Or a piece of fruit and nuts when I’m on the run

DINNER

Celery and sweet potato soup topped with a drizzle of yoghurt, pea tendrils and roe.
