The Celebrity Shopping Trolley - Edith Bowman
From a TV talent show at 14, Capital Radio, MTV, Channel 4, Radio 1, Glastonbury, Wembley and TV coverage of William and Kate’s wedding, Edith Bowman is a star. Of course she has talent, but her great diet and attitude to food, play a big part in her high energy performances.
Eggs Benedict – poached eggs, muffins, crispy bacon and mounds of Hollandaise sauce – a bit naughty but very, very nice; or at home, yoghurt, granola, berries, fruit juice and a cup of tea make two high protein and energising breakfasts.
An ”on the run” sandwich, usually tuna salad, or fresh pizza is normal lunch, both good choices; tuna for the vital omega 3 oils and calcium from cheese on the pizza, plus plenty of good calories from the bread and dough.
When it gets to dinner time I am just as impressed with Edith, as when out she adores Asian food like black, tempura prawns, maki rolls (sheets of dried seaweed filled with rice and fish, meat or vegetables), yellow tail tuna sashimi with jalapeño and maybe a spicy crab. This food is low in saturated fats but rich in omega 3; bursting with essential minerals like iodine, zinc and selenium, missing in poor diets.
Home cooked evening meals could be steak with pak choi and mustard mash; lamb chops with rosemary, garlic and lemon with sweet potato chips; a chilli or a fish pie - all homemade and first rate choices for excellent, balanced nutrition.
Edith continues with sensible snacks like Satsuma, clementine, or carrot and cucumber with humus, but falls down with her favourite non-alcoholic drink, Ribena, full of sugar or artificial sweeteners, neither of which is very healthy. Happily she mostly drinks water.
