Day on a Plate with Cherida Forde

Posted on 10 July 2014

When it comes to choosing what to eat, we are overwhelmed with copious amounts of contradictory information that we tend to get confused. It is important to fuel your body with the correct clean foods that are not only tasty but will enable you to feel amazing and perform at your full potential. 

We spoke to Cherida Forde, our newest Vie Activist and owner of YP Active, to show you what a balanced diet of a fitness professional looks like. She is an expert in her field and understands the integral role that nutrition plays in leading a healthy and active life. She believes that a balanced diet is important where keeping it real with a cheeky snack or glass of wine every now and then is essential. 

Snack after early morning gym session:
Protein shake mixed with Nuzest protein powder, acai powder and Moringa powder - mixed with water.

This is a bit of a random concoction that I have come up with, but now cant get enough of! Soaked Buckwheat, with sunflower seeds, Pepita's (pumpkin seeds), almonds and soaked dried figs. Blended together (similar consistency to porridge - but cold) served with cinnamon, bee pollen and fresh blueberries & strawberries.
Buckwheat - is a seed and has a nice nutty flavour. It is gluten free, low GI and high in amino acids, fiber and essential minerals maganese, magnesium, zinc and copper. Interestingly is also contains the amino acid trytophan which helps make serotonin- the feel good hormone! By added the other nuts and seeds your boosting omega 3, protein, fiber and healthy fats.
Not every day, but I do enjoy a soy latte during the week.
