Matcha in the Morning

@emthenutritionist WHAT I EAT IN A DAY AS A NUTRITIONIST I started off with matcha made with almond milk for slow-release caffeine. A tip is to use organic plant milk as calcium actually binds to the good stuff in matcha and prevents its absorption! After my walk I recipe tested my breakfast oat banana bread loaf which I did drop, classic, BUT it survived. It's essentially porridge in banana bread form made with oat flour paired with yoghurt, almond butter and frozen raspberries. Post workout I had my protein clear lychee whey which is my current OBSESSION. I had so many DMS about this but its basically 21g of protein in the most freshening form. It tastes like a lychee martini and I add an extra scoop of collagen for the glow. On repeat this summer! Lunch was my air fryer sticky salmon bites tossed in soy, honey, sesame seeds, garlic and a little lime juice. I serve it with precooked quinoa, avocado and chilli salt. This was so quick and so filling that I didn't actually need an afternoon snack. Dinner was lemongrass chicken with a Vietnamese inspired noodle salad filled with fresh carrot and cabbage. But honestly, this dressing guys.. chefs kiss. Will film both of these to get out on the feed this week! Of course, a little ice cream to seal the deal. #wieiad #whatieayinaday #healthymealideas ♬ original sound – Emily English

Emily enjoys the perks of caffeine. However, she doesn't rely on coffee to get energy. "A morning matcha to start me off with slow release caffeine and antioxidants," explains Emily. She specifies that she makes it with almond milk.
