Radio announcer Tim Blackwell, 38, share his day on a plate.
6am A double-shot flat white.
7.45am A poached egg on sourdough with tomato, avo, goat feta, chilli oil and a sprinkling of parsley.
9am Another double-shot flat white and some water.
12.30pm A sushi train lunch: miso soup, edamame beans, salmon nori roll, a fishy thing I can’t make out on rice with soy and wasabi, and a can of kombucha.
2pm Some lolly snakes from the snack cupboard.3.15pm A quick macchiato before our show starts.
4pm A lemon and ginger tea.
5.20pm I can’t resist! A fun-size packet of Cheezels in an ad break, then a ginger and lemon tea top-up.
6.30pm Arriving home, I down a quick can of pale ale.
7.30pm Curry with lamb, stacks of greens, brown rice and roast cauliflower, plus a glass of orange wine.
Dr Joanna McMillan says …
Top marks for … Your main meals. They are all pretty well balanced, including legumes from the edamame and wholegrains from the brown rice, while the seaweed from the sushi added nutrients such as iodine, which is often low in Aussie diets. The generous serving of vegies at dinner is terrific.
If you keep eating like this you’ll … Have to watch that the snack-food cupboard doesn’t derail your healthy eating. You did at least choose a fun-size packet of Cheezels, but these and the lollies are ultra-processed foods that are detrimental to health. Having these also pushes out the chance of getting more nutritious, wholefood snacks into your day.
Why don’t you try … Taking snacks with you to work to make it easier to avoid the snack-food cupboard. Fresh fruit, roasted or raw nuts, seeds, yoghurt, plain popcorn or wholegrain crackers with hummus would all be good options.
