Chia and Oats For Breakfast


Seth enjoys fruit such as watermelon for breakfast, or a bowl of chia and oats. "Chia seeds are a rich source of minerals, which are known to be beneficial for bone health, including calcium, magnesium and phosphorus," says registered nutritionist Jo Lewin. "A 25g portion of chia seeds contains approximately 158mg of calcium which makes a significant contribution when compared to the equivalent amount of milk."


Chicken and Quinoa For Lunch

Seth makes a delicious chicken and quinoa dish using a pressure cooker and adding lots of vegetables. "High in fiber and with more protein of rice or barley, quinoa may be beneficial for those looking to manage their weight," Lewin says. "One explanation for this is the filling nature of protein and fiber which helps us manage our appetite. Quinoa also has a low glycaemic index (GI) so its slower energy release makes it less likely to trigger cravings and stimulate hunger."


Chocolate For a Snack

Chocolate is Seth's go-to indulgent snack. "Having a healthy relationship with all foods is important for your mind and your body," according to Johns Hopkins Health. "But beginning or creating a balanced relationship with dark chocolate, in particular, may have a significantly positive impact on your overall health. Dark chocolate contains powerful antioxidants. Among the most beneficial is a flavonol called epicatechin. Flavonols are compounds found in plants that fight inflammation and protect against cell damage caused by free radicals."



Seth loves to make smoothies from kale, apple, banana, and spinach. "Spinach has long been regarded as a plant which can restore energy, increase vitality and improve the quality of the blood," Lewin says. "There are good reasons for this, such as the fact that spinach is rich in iron. This mineral plays a central role in the function of red blood cells which help transport oxygen around the body, supports energy production and DNA synthesis. However, high levels of a compound called oxalic acid, naturally found in spinach, appears to inhibit the absorption of minerals like iron; that said, lightly cooking or wilting appears to minimize these effects."


Chicken Caesar Salad

Seth always keeps her dinners light and loves to make chicken Caesar Salad with store-bought dressing. "I think the rule to follow is that your heavier, in terms of caloric value, should be prior to the most active times of your day so you have energy for your workout or whatever your activity is," says Albert Matheny, R.D., C.S.C.S. "The lightest meal of the day should be when you are the least active, for most people this is dinner before bed."
