My Day On A Plate: Christy Smith
You may know Christy from her inspirational instagram account @how_i_lost_10_kilos. Christy first started her health journey in October 2013. She joined a local bootcamp & decided after years of disliking her body image that enough was enough and something had to change! She lost 12 kilos over 6 months by deciding to make better food choices. She now eats clean 80% of the time and sticks to a high protein diet! Christy loves baking sweet raw treats and going for long runs every morning. Here is what she eats on an average day with her day on a plate…
My day on a plate consists of; 60% carbs 40% protein & 10% fat.
I’m always baking clean, raw, treats & try to swap it up everyday!
1 cup of organic puffed rice, 1 cup of blueberries & almond milk
Banana shake – 1 frozen banana, a handful of spinach leaves, 180 g of Chobani yoghurt, 2 schools of vanilla whey protein, coconut water, almond milk & Cacao nibs to garnish.
I meal prep every Sunday which makes my life so much easier as I’m on the go all the time! This lunch is 150 g of shredded chicken & 1 cup of broccoli with wholemeal mustard.
3 linseed, soy & chia corn thins with 50 g of cottage cheese and cherry tomatoes.
Salmon chick pea & avocado salad! Smoked shaved salmons, 2 boiled eggs, avocado, chick peas, cucumber, tomato, spinach leaves & carrot with lemon juice as a dressing.
Banana & date ice cream- 2 frozen bananas, 5 chopped dates & a splash of coconut water in blender until a ice-cream consistency appears.
20 mins meditation – everyday I try to sit back with a green tea, close my eyes & listen to music in a far quite room.
Bootcamp – 3 x a week 1 hr duration. Today’s session = Cardio. I also do weights 2 x a week and try to go for a run or a hike 1-2 x a week.
Here’s my signature recipe for
Clean Curry Chicken:
- 4 x shredded cooked chicken breasts
- 1 can of lite coconut cream
- 1 chopped red capsicum
- A handful of spinach leaves
- A cup of mushrooms
- 1 tsp of minced garlic
- Curry powder & Cumin powder to taste!
Taste as you go, add as much of the powders to your taste & liking!
Cook & brown shredded chicken breast on a medium pan add coconut milk and ingredients & cook for 15-20 minutes.
Makes enough for 10 or so meals that I freeze with broccoli & quinoa
