Karla’s daily food routine:
Here is a look at what I eat in a day. All provided by either Ana or my mum Nancy. Everything is organic and fresh where available.
I start my day with a glass of water with fresh squeezed lemon juice, Restorolax, and lemon rind chopped finely.
Breakfast is always a smoothie. I love refreshing healthy smoothies, especially on days when I don’t feel like eating. Here is what Ana does for 2 smoothies:
- Protein powder (as per package)
- 2T Oatmeal
- 1 cup Fruits (everyday a different combination)-Banana, Pear, Blue berries, Watermelon, Mango
- 1 cup of veggies (everyday a different combination) – Cauliflower, frozen kale, Sweet potatoes, broccoli
- Coconut milk
Blend chosen ingredients in blender until no chunks remain. Karla enjoys it in two parts – one in morning, one around lunch time.
At some point every day I have turmeric ginger made by my childhood friend Tori Newall. (Which I think she should sell.)
When I feel nauseated, or just for an afternoon treat I drink my special anti nausea tea. It is made by Ana.
- 4 thumb-sized ginger
- 2 cups water
- 2 Tbsp Rosemary
- 2 Tbsp Fennel
- 1 Tbsp Oregano
- 1 Big Stick Cinnamon Bark
- Honey if needed
Put all ingredients into a pot and boil on stove until colour is dark brown. Let cool with all ingredients in pot until ready to drink, then strain and pour into a cup the. reheat. Can be refrigerated as well.
For lunch I enjoy a piece of gluten free toast well done with crunchy peanut butter and sometimes a drizzle of honey.
Each night for dinner the family sits together and enjoys organic vegetables, salad, meats and a starch. Once a week we enjoy fish.
After dinner I sit down and enjoy a hot milk with turmeric and ginger paste.
For treats, I try to have natural sugar treats, like honey, and avoid most dairy containing products.
