HEALTH: The healthy diet that REALLY offers!

Sarah Stacey for The Mail on Sunday

Jennifer Irvine, mother of four children, is "obsessed with longevity." Since he is only 42 years old and is a picture of booming health that bounces, it seems a bit premature. But Jennifer and her friends talk a lot about that, she tells me. & # 39; Life is a series of chapters. I came across purple hair, a nose ring and overdosed friends in my 20s to be a wife, mother and businesswoman. Now we all want to reach that certain âge, as the French say, still resplendent, feeling good about ourselves and able to enjoy life. "

For Jennifer: "Keeping myself healthy in the long term is keeping balance in my life in every way possible: from stable blood sugar to eight hours to nap sleeping if necessary." As the founder of a flourishing welfare empire, Jennifer has to walk with her to talk. Raised on a sustainable farm in western Ireland, where she sold eggs from her chickens from the age of eight, in 2003 she founded the gourmet diet delivery company The Pure Package.

The idea hit Jennifer when she saw her husband, Stephen Irvine, and his city colleagues working 14 hours a day fed with junk food. "I've always liked good food and I like to take care of people, so it's because of that." From its beginnings in its small kitchen, the business now has a great success among the clients, which include celebrities and elite athletes, claiming for the daily Deliveries of three delicious balanced meals plus two refreshments.

But the Pure package price (currently £ 39.95 per day) was out of reach for many people, so in 2013 Jennifer launched Balance Box, available nationally, which costs £ 19.99 per day for a delivery, available throughout the country, with all meals and snacks for three or four days. Our single mother tester could not believe "it's a great value for money; there is a wide variety of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes on the menu menu Four days lighter with different masses of vegetables and everything you need. I was hungry, but I lost 4 pounds in four days. "

As the name of the brand suggests, the menus, which are planned by nutritional therapists and prepared by chefs, reflect Jennifer's belief that the food must be of ethical origin, the best possible quality with the perfect balance of nutrients. "It makes a big difference nutritionally, plus he earns an extra hour per day since he does not have to cook," he says.

Being nice to yourself is a priority on Jennifer's list of the musts of longevity. Because the workday is "usually crazy", your gift of the night is to immerse yourself in a long shower or bath with candles by Jo Malone London and "beautiful bath oils and body creams".

Regular exercise is crucial. "I try to take 10,000 steps a day in my Fitbit, I keep a couple of floors in my bag and walk through the office when I'm on the phone, and we do a lot of meetings on foot as a team, it makes ideas flow, and we have balls to sit on. and desks standing in the office. "Twice a week, Jennifer performs a 30-minute full-body weight training session and is happy that her biological age (50 more when she started this regimen) is now super healthy 21 .

At the end of the day, Jennifer asks her children: "What's the best thing that happened to you today?", So they go to sleep happy. Then she counts her blessings. & # 39; We do not do that enough. Good things happen to me When bad things happen, my attitude is that they give me a greater understanding. I am a lucky person. "
