To make her breakfast smoothie, she blitzed together water, frozen berries, baby spinach, coconut milk, protein powder, rolled oats, cocoa powder, chia seeds, ground cinnamon and ice cubes in a blender.

She said the smoothie tastes ‘so yummy’ even her husband enjoys it.

‘Then I have low carb cassava bread and I toast it, add some avocado, lemon juice, grated carrot, lots of herbs, baby spinach and more lemon because why not,’ she said, adding: ‘This is so delicious and nutritious, I just love it.’

The carrot is seasoned with garlic, thyme, oregano, Cheyenne pepper and kelp.

After her morning workout she enjoys a chocolate, almond and coconut flavoured ‘smart bar’ from her supplement line with Women’s Best.
