So let's take a peek at Zoe's day on a plate...


I love to start my day with a pre-breakfast vegetable juice such as beetroot, carrot, celery and ginger.

I then look forward to eggs and avocado on sourdough or a warming porridge topped with full-fat natural yoghurt, fruit and hemp seeds.


I am a huge advocate for plant-based eating and days when I am not on the go, my lunch usually consists of a big leafy salad with left-over roasted vegetables, grains (rice, quinoa, millet, buckwheat) or legumes, avocado and a dressing using hemp seeds or tahini paste. Whatever I can find in the fridge!

In the cooler months, I am a big fan of turning leftovers into soups as a way to cut down on waste and will serve this with a slice of avocado toast.

If I am out and about I might go for a fresh poke bowl, sushi or an open style sandwich with roasted vegetables and hummus.



We eat as a family and I like to keep dinner fairly simple, focusing on good quality produce and lots of veg! I may do a small portion of meat or fish with various sides such as a leafy salad, grilled capsicums and roasted sweet potato or a roasted veg pasta sauce with buckwheat pasta, legumes and pesto.


I rarely eat a morning snack as my breakfast usually keeps me going. If I am in the mood for something, my usual go-to’s are

  • Full-fat yoghurt with fruit and hemp seeds of LSA

  • Handful of raw nuts and seeds

  • Quick smoothie using plant-based milk, left-over fruit salad and hemp seeds

  • Seed crackers or veggie sticks with hummus or mashed avocado



Exercise is as much about mental health as it is physical health for me and I prioritise moving daily in a way which best suits how I am feeling! My workouts are usually a mix of reformer pilates, beach walks or resistance style training in the gym. My family lives a pretty active lifestyle so on weekends we will go for walks on the beach or bike rides.
