What are your non-negotiables?
“I'm not a routine person in terms of like, I need coffee. I aim to do yoga every morning; it's not a must, but I'd probably do it five times a week, which is a lot. So, I don't have any routines. I try not to have those kinds of routines in terms of food or coffee because I feel like I don't want to be dependent on anything.”
What are your cheat meals?
“French fries and popcorn, which isn't a meal. Because I don't really do cheat meals. I do cheat snacks. I would also say homemade cinnamon rolls!”
What would you normally have for breakfast, lunch and dinner, just on an average day?
“Well, yeah, I'm really into this lately. I realised that for breakfast, I like to have a light breakfast. I'll usually take 120 calories. So that's like an apple or two boiled eggs, water and coffee if I want, but just black, no sugar, no anything else. I just try to reach 120 calories for my breakfast, because it gets my metabolism going, gets everything started. Then during the day, I just really try to make sure I have lots of greens and then lots of protein, not necessarily meat, but more through beans or something like that. And then a few complex carbs, depending on if I worked out enough or not.”
If you just did a big training session, is there a specific food that you would eat afterwards to help with recovery or to help with your hunger?
“Definitely lots of greens. Sometimes I just go home and make a shake, or I eat a lot of nuts just immediately afterwards, so I can have some sort of quick protein.”
What do you love about baking and what is your favourite thing to make?
“I think my favourite so far is a strawberry shortcake, which I made one which was, honestly, it was so good, I had to give it away because I kept eating it. I love baking. It's so fun. It's so relaxing and I'm good at following directions, and that's all I do when it comes to baking. Just follow the directions that the recipe has given to me. And then I like design too, so it's kind of cool. You can be creative with it.”
