Murgatroyd says having her first child Shai, in 2017, changed the way she felt about cooking at home. "I have fallen in love with cooking for my little family," she says. "I used to loathe it, because I never had to do it and therefore never had the passion for it. Now that I'm a mother and I am concerned with what my child is eating, I am more inclined to cook at home, to ensure I know exactly what's going in his mouth. It took a while to find a love for it, but now that I have the bug I'm cooking three days a week."
Murgatroyd enjoys a protein-packed breakfast consisting of coffee, eggs, goats cheese, and smoked salmon. "Most healthy people can eat up to seven eggs a week without increasing their risk of heart disease. Some studies have shown that this level of egg consumption might even help prevent certain types of stroke and a serious eye condition called macular degeneration that can lead to blindness," says the Mayo Clinic.
Berries For a Snack
Murgatroyd's go-to snack is a bowl of strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries. "Go blue! Scientists have shown that blueberries are loaded with compounds (phytonutrients) that may help prevent chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes and some cancers. Blueberries may also improve short-term memory and promote healthy aging," says the Mayo Clinic.
Steak and Vegetables For Dinner
Murgatroyd enjoys steak for dinner, with steamed cauliflower, brussels sprouts, and broccoli. "Protein is important because it provides the amino acids your body needs to build and repair muscle. Most research suggests very active people should eat 1.2 to 2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. That means a 150-pound person should eat 82 to 136 grams each day," says the Mayo Clinic.
Murgatroyd opts for Greek yogurt with dried fruit after dinner. Greek yogurt has probiotics. "These beneficial bacteria are important for your health. The helpful microbes may improve gut health and boost immunity. But only yogurts stamped with the "Live & Active Cultures" seal contain probiotics, and the type and amount can vary by brand. So check before you buy," says Cleveland Clinic.
