Food Business expert Monique Borst shared her top tips with The Detox Kitchen on how she approaches free time on the weekends, leaving her rejuvenated, refreshed and ready to hit the ground running at the start of the working week.
What are you day to day eating patterns?
In the morning I like to eat a simple breakfast: high protein, high fiber cereal or a hardboiled egg with yogurt and a piece of sliced whole grain bread. And, I always have a green tea or an espresso to help me wake up. Sometimes I like egg white omelets with spinach. For lunch, I typically have grilled salmon with a mixed green salad or non-dairy vegetable soup. For dinner, I usually have fish-- a piece of grilled fish or sashimi. If I eat meat, I like it to be lean with some vegetables like asparagus.
Do you believe in eating food to make yourself feel better on the inside and out?
What is your number one tip for glowing skin?
Drink plenty of water - the equivalent of at least eight glasses of water a day. To make it easier, carry a reusable water bottle, which is more environmentally friendly than going through several plastic water bottles during the day.
At the Detox Kitchen we use lots of ingredients to improve skin tone, are there any foods that you eat to give your skin a beauty boost?
Your diet directly impacts your overall health and also how you look. Certain nutrients in particular are important for maintaining healthy skin, hair and nails. Think of them as your beauty foods. Foods rich in Omega 3 oils-like salmon, almonds, walnuts and olive oil-have skin-repairing benefits while fruits and vegetables with a high-water content like watermelon, cucumber and dark leafy greens will add moisture to your skin. Drinking more water will help too, so don't skimp on H20.
You have had an extremely successful career, what have been the most important lessons you've learnt along the way?
