1. Jump-Start Your Body Your morning meal is especially important when you have a long day ahead. Some of the healthiest options include high-fibre cereal with low-fat milk; yogurt mixed with wheat germ; scrambled eggs with whole-grain toast or pita; omelets stuffed with veggies and reduced-fat cheese; and a toasted whole-grain English muffin topped with peanut butter (you may swap the peanut butter for a few tomato slices and melted low-fat cheese). Couple each of these breakfast options with fresh fruit, and you’ll start your day with a bang!
2. Re-energise Your Body Eat every few hours, and include the winning combination of lean protein and fibre at meals and snacks. Protein and fibre work together to keep blood sugar stable so you can maintain focus and balance and stay at the top of your game. Try energy-boosting, portable combos like yogurt or cottage cheese with fresh fruit; a peanut-butter sandwich on whole-wheat bread; a turkey or grilled-chicken wrap with veggies; soy crisps; trail mix; granola bars; nuts (almonds, pistachios, cashews, soy nuts); sunflower seeds; or fresh fruit and string cheese.
3. Water Your Body Water hydrates cells and keeps your skin, hair, and body looking their best. Always carry a water bottle with you, and load up on water-rich fruits and vegetables such as oranges, berries, melons, peaches, plums, pears, apples, asparagus, broccoli, carrots, celery, cucumbers, capsicum and spinach.
