Protein Shake First Thing
A typical breakfast for Hague is cereal and a protein shake. "Replacing meals with protein shakes may help you lower your daily calories, which can help you lose weight," says Katherine Zeratsky, RD, LD. "But in time you'll need to start eating solid food again. Eating solid food may cause excess weight to return if you don't make smart food choices. And if you rely too much on protein shakes to replace daily meals, you'll miss out on the healthy benefits of whole foods."
Fruit For a Snack
Hague enjoys mango, melon, pineapple, or grapes for a healthy snack on the go. "Grapes are a source of natural compounds including polyphenols, catechins and anthocyanins," says registered nutritionist Nicola Shubrook. "As well as providing the pigment to determine the color of the grape, these compounds have protective antioxidant properties. Indeed, grape juice is one of the richest sources of phenolic compounds among fruits, with the most talked about being resveratrol."
Chicken and Sweet Potato
Hague loves chicken and sweet potato mash for a nutritious lunch. "Sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene – in fact, it's what gives this root its bright-orange flesh," Shubrook says. "When we eat beta-carotene, our body converts it to vitamin A, which is then used to form light detecting receptors in the eye. This is important for night vision and maintaining the health of the eye."
Hague enjoys protein-heavy dinners with rice and plant-based turkey/ham. "White rice is easily digested, low in fiber and when cooked and served correctly is unlikely to cause gastric upset," says nutritionist Kerry Torrens. "It may be a useful inclusion for those who suffer from heartburn or nausea as well as during the flare-ups associated with conditions like diverticulitis and Crohn's disease."
Coleslaw For a Treat
Hague sometimes adds coleslaw to her lunch for a treat. "This has been a lunch, actually, that I've been having for ages," she says. "It is a salad, I put half a packet of Uncle Ben's Spicy Mexican rice in it, with some sweetcorn, I've used two bacon rashers, I used a couple of slices of Quorn chicken slices, then I've put some hummus and coleslaw on top, because coleslaw is my guilty pleasure."
