Belinda’s lunch box this week consists of fresh strawberries, raw almonds, seaweed crackers, manuka honey, a raw carrot and mini cucumbers as a snack.
The teacher then eats a roasted vegetable salad with young spinach, satay sauce and sweet potato for lunch.
She said she’s noticed temperatures drop a bit this week, as well as the winds and pollen that affect overall air quality.
“As soon as the temperature drops, we all feel the effects,” said Belinda.
“To maintain our well-being, we need to feed our bodies with easily digestible foods that create clean airways.”
The 43-year-old mom said she also concentrated on hydration this work week as it’s easy to drop water over the side when you’re busy working and it’s not that hot.
“I drank water, hot water, green tea, coconut water and sparkling mineral water,” she said.
“Just two coffees a day – up to a quarter cup of almond milk in coffee.”
