I normally rise at around 6am and practice a short yoga nidra in the morning to set my intentions for the day followed by a glass of hot water, lemon and fresh squeezed ginger! Plus, during my day I always try and do one yoga class! I haven’t eaten meat in over 30 years and I don’t eat cow’s milk products or wheat and also try to avoid simple carbs. Protein and greens make up most of my meals and therefore I never snack. I drink a LOT of water, earl grey and green tea and a double espresso in the morning if needed. I love food and eating well, but I have to plan in advance to make sure that I have good things to hand. I have just bought a slow cooker and it’s great for cold winter evenings when the last thing you want to do is cook when you get home late - I imagine it’s a bit like having a wife at home, although one who only cooks stews!
First thing: Water with ginger and lemon (in winter I’ll add olive leaf extract), I also take Oskia MSM and a Vitamin D as well as Omega 3,6 & 9 (I have this everyday)
