And we couldn't agree more, so we sat down with Tegan to find our what a typical day on a plate looks like for her.
Two Glasses of water as soon as I get up – I never miss this – top beauty secret for sure!
Choc Coco Breakfast Smoothie
- 150mL Coco Quench Milk
- ½ Cup ice
- ¼ Avocado
- 1 Tablespoon Cacao or 1 Scoop The Beauty Chef’s Choc Protein
- 1 Handful frozen blueberries
- 1 Tablespoon Flaxseed Meal
- 1/8 teaspoon stevia
Two soft boiled eggs with Asparagus soldiers and 6 roasted almonds
Coffee….Yes I drink coffee, nothing wrong with one cup a day. But I always eat first. Even if its just some healthy fats to line my stomach such as almonds or coconut oil!
Often re-jigged leftovers from dinner the night before. 150g leftover slow roast lamb shoulder with a salad of:
- Handful Spinach
- ½ cup roast pumpkin
- ½ fresh sliced tomato
- ¼ chopped cucumber
- Olive oil, lemon and salt dressing
Wood Smoked Salmon Fish Fillet w/ Asian Vermicilli Noodles. I like to add any veges I have chopped up into the noodles: Broccoli, carrots, spinach or any greens work well. Finely chop them and stir into cooked noodles. I add a generous splash of tamari, red chilli sauce, lime or lemon juice and sesame oil. The fish can be broken and stirred in or served on top.
If I haven’t had a breakfast shake I may have a post workout protein shake. I like Clean and Lean Vanilla Protein to use as a base. Not too sweet but so delicious. Can just keep it simple and have with water and ice or add berries or greens to boost an antioxidant hit. Otherwise I like to have almond butter and raw honey on a slice of toasted Spring Wellness bread. It’s sprouted so much easier to digest and packed full of nutrients. It’s so good the challenge is only having one!
I would probably have a Green Tea now also. I have three different ones on rotation at the moment. A Chai blend, a Turmeric one, and a three Green one – love them all!
I like to cook slow roast or bone broths and have them on hand to make easy meals.
But otherwise I really cook quite simply. I like minute steaks with sauerkraut and greens or roast chicken with cauliflower mash and gravy. Or lately I’ve been perfecting my sweet potato fries recipe for my online coaching clients so I’ve been having a lot of homemade Fish and Chips! I like to feel like I’m not missing out on anything delicious just because I choose to eat healthy. So I'm always experimenting and making sure my meals are full of good quality ingredients to maximize the flavor!
At the moment its hot chocolate – just with 1 teaspoon of raw cacao mixed with hot coco quench and a teaspoon of honey. Pretty simple but does the trick! As the weather heats up I’ll probably go back to making some raw desserts and freezing them so they come out like ice cream!
My very own Chocolate Serenity Balls found on page 199 of the 'Clean and Lean Diet Book'.
- 60g dates (pitted and soaked in warm water)
- 40 g cashew nuts
- 20g Clean and Lean Serenity Powder
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- 10g raw cacao powder
- Blend the dates into a sticky paste.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well to combine.
- Section and roll into 10g balls (optional to also roll in coconut) and let set in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight.
SO DELICIOUS for a chocolate fix!
