For as long as I can remember, I have always been obsessed with health, wellness and food. I'm so grateful I have could turn my passion into a career. Even though every day holds something new for me, a typical day of eating looks like this:
Wake up: 5a.m
I wake up to a warm lemon water to fire up digestion and detoxify my body after a good night’s sleep. As soon as I wake up I have a cup of warm filtered water, 1/4 slice of lemon, 1tsp Apple Cider Vinegar and L-Glutamine.
Breakfast: 9 a.m.
I start each day with my ‘Fab 4 Smoothie’, which consists of varying ingredients like greens, berries, frozen veggies like zucchini or cauliflower, Collagen Powder and coconut water, but always a healthy dose of protein, fat, fiber and greens (aka Kirsten’s FAB FOUR). The components work together to turn off your hunger hormones, elongate the blood sugar curve and keep you full and satisfied.
Subsequent meals also always involve my FAB FOUR mix of protein, fat, fiber and greens. Macronutrient intake plays an integral role in keeping cells, the microbiome and the brain healthy.
Lunch normally consists of a wild caught fish like sardines or salmon, usually over a salad or wrapped into a lettuce cup. With every meal, my goal is always to nourish my body with nutrients and calm my hunger with protein and healthy fat.
Afternoon snack: 4p.m. I always have an afternoon snack to hold me over until dinner. I'm like clockwork. No matter how late I eat lunch, I always get hungry at 4. I’m usually pretty busy at this time so I just grab an apple and some coconut butter.
Dinner: 7p.m. Dinner is usually homemade, semi-homemade meal or a crockpot favorite. I love to cook, but I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen unless it’s a fun weekend and I am trying to create something new. I would much rather be getting to my favorite yoga instead of spending hours on my feet in the kitchen. I love a whole roast chicken with roasted veggies, meatballs and zoodles or a warm winter stew with a fresh vegetable salad.
Sweet Snack: 8p.m I always have a cup of peppermint tea, but if I feel like something sweet I’ll have something at about 8:00 once I’ve switched off for the night. I love eating these little cinnamon, maca fat bombs with whole ingredients.
1 cup coconut butter
1 1/2 cups coconut flakes
1.5 tbsp. ghee
1/2 tsp MACA powder
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp salt
4 tbsp Great Lakes Collagen
Stevia to taste
Place all ingredients in your food processor. Process until everything has blended together. Spoon batter into mold tray. Freeze for 1 hour.
