This Is a Perfect Day on a Plate, According to a Celebrity Nutritionist
While many scrutinise celebrities to discover their health and diet secrets, we know the best source of inspiration and information isn't the A-lister—it's their nutritionist. So when The Grace Tales spoke to Hollywood's go-to health expert, Amelia Freer, to discover the daily routine she swears by, we took note.
Countless celebrities turn to Freer for nutrition and meal advice, including designer and mother of four Victoria Beckham. "I've also started seeing Amelia Freer [and] I've learned so much about food; you’ve got to eat the right things, eat the right healthy fats," she recently told Net-a-Porter's The Edit.
So, what does an A-list nutritionist eat in a day? Here's a glimpse at her inspiring morning routine and the energy-packed meals she makes to power through her day.
"As soon as I wake up, I do a short yoga routine consisting of basic stretches as I find that I get so stiff in the hips from all of the sitting I do during the day. I start with a mug of warm water, sometimes with lemon, sometimes not," Freer tells The Grace Tales.
When it comes to breakfast, Freer saves time by using leftovers. "My breakfast this morning was especially delicious thanks to yummy broad beans left over from last night’s supper: I warmed them in a pan with finely chopped spring onions and olive oil, then piled them high on a piece of gluten free toast," she says. "To finish the dish, I drizzled over lemon juice with a pinch of fresh black pepper and popped a soft poached egg on top. I finished off with a small bowl of blueberries."
Lunch is usually a mixture of leftovers or garden greenery. "My kitchen garden has produced huge quantities of courgettes (green and yellow), so using my new electric spiralizer, I quickly made courgetti and sautéed it in a pan with chopped spring onion, a little chilli, and a good handful of cherry tomatoes," she says. Freer takes the time to sit down and savour each bite, which she says is an important part of her daily ritual.
Salmon, mixed greens, and peas with potato salad is on the menu for dinner. "I quickly pan fried two salmon fillets and made an extra one for lunch the following day, of course, following the 'cook once, eat twice' rule," she says. "Before bed, I drink a couple more glasses of water. I try not to eat later than 8pm to ensure my digestion has time to do its job before I go to sleep."
