With an eating ethos that celebrates good food rather than fads and guilt driven exclusions, Amelia Freer is a nutritionist who knows her way around a kitchen more that most. With a food delivery service, Freer Food and new book Eat. Nourish. Glow (HarperCollins, £16.99) out now we asked Amelia for a peek into her fridge and eating philosophy….
Your Eating Ethos – I hate to give it a name as it’s just what I’ve figured out for me, but I guess it’s closest to Paleo in that I don’t eat grains. I focus firstly on vegetables, then one source of protein from either pulses, animal protein or a vegan source, then I choose flavour from various herbs and spices, and one choice of fruit. To me this is the cleanest way to eat – I learned it from the Metabolic Balance programme that I trained in a few years ago and I use it with many clients and it seems to work well for most.
Best Way to Breakfast – Avocado & eggs are always a favourite.
Snack Attack – I don’t snack. If I were traveling I’d choose a LoveRaw bar or a few nuts with a piece of fruit.
Drinking Diligently – I drink Jax Coconut Water occasionally, especially in smoothies or juices. Other than that it’s hot water, occasionally a Pukka Green Chai Tea.
A Little Indulgence – I drink organic coffee blended with MCT (Medium-chain triglycerides) oil and I drink red wine occasionally, less these days than I used to as I can’t cope with how bad it makes me feel so I’ve switched to tequila!
Superfood You Rate Now – All real food is Super to me! I guess Chia seeds… not so new but it’s a must-have to me.
Supplement You Wouldn’t be Without – A probiotic. and Magnesium. And zinc! And Vitamin D…!
Favourite Dinner – Pure Taste in Notting Hill.
