As a dietician, I love to have variety in my diet. Not only does this mean exposure to a greater number of nutrients, but it also means I’m keeping things interesting!
I have coeliac disease, so my choices are regularly gluten-free. I typically have a quick option and a more time-consuming option to choose from. I do some food prep at the start of the week to get ahead; hard-boiled eggs, cold cooked potatoes and veggie sticks are always prepped and ready.
Quick smoothie: With blueberries, milk, natural yoghurt, cinnamon and chia seeds
Eggs: 2 eggs with a side of wilted baby spinach and tomato, plus a slice of gluten-free toast with a little avocado.
FAV VOOME BREAKFAST RECIPE: Baked Italian Eggs
Quick salad: I use a bag of ‘kale slaw’ mix, add some cold cooked potatoes, a tin of tuna (or a hard-boiled egg), olives, lemon juice and feta.
Lunch out: 2 sushi rolls with a side of seaweed salad and miso soup.
FAV VOOME LUNCH RECIPE: Quinoa, Pea & Goat’s Cheese Salad
Quick one-pan meal: I pop some chicken in a baking tray with zucchini, capsicum, olives, cherry tomatoes and some diced pumpkin. Roast for 30 mins and dinner is done!
Family Meals: I have a little boy who loves Spaghetti Bolognese. When I make it I add loads of vegetables to the sauce and given I cannot eat pasta, I often cook some spiralled vege for my ‘pasta’.
FAV VOOME DINNER RECIPE: Steamed Orange Glazed Salmon with Soba Noodles, Snow Peas & Broccoli
Popcorn, berries with yoghurt, veggie sticks with a little hummus, trail mix or occasionally some lemony bliss balls!
