Can you kill it, pick it out of the ground or pull it from a tree? If not, don’t eat it.
What three items do you always have in your fridge?
Minced kangaroo, mashed sweet potato and probiotics.
What do you usually have for breakfast?
I have a six whole egg omelette with ham, spinach and tomato.It is prepared by my helper at night so I just need to reheat it at an ungodly hour of the morning.
What are your favourite restaurants when eating out?
I am terrified of being adventurous when it comes to eating out, and will tend to opt for restaurants that I know will appeal to my preferences. It’s hard to go wrong with Bistecca, or any of the Castelo Concepts restaurants.
What do you eat on cheat day?
This is a precise science. I leave nothing to chance. I get two small frozen yogurts from Yo Mama, and then add in my own confectionery at home which is a particular brand from Australia. This then goes into the snap freezer and is chilled to a concrete consistency. I then attempt to consume it with miniature spoons designed for elves. I have honed this system over many years, and if even one element is out, I border on a panic attack.
What’s one thing you wished people knew about diet and nutrition?
Be consistent. It really isn’t as complicated as people think it is. If you stick to the “real food” message, you automatically mitigate most of the foods that cause inflammation or digestive stress. Everyone loves to debate whether a pecan is better than a walnut; meanwhile they have a hotdog and a can of beer for dinner. Consistency trumps perfection every time.
What do you snack on when you’re on the move with no time to prepare anything?
It depends how hungry I am. I think claiming to have “no other option” is a great excuse that people use to make garbage food choices. If I’m ready to personify violence through food deprivation, I’ll grab a Quest Bar.
When was the last time you ate McDonalds?
About four years ago when I had gastro. I figured I wasn’t absorbing any food so I may as well. It was heinous. Tears of lost dignity made the apple pie soggy.
Last meal on earth: what would it be?
Banoffee pie. Without question.
