Clinical naturopath and director of Studio You, Emma Sutherland, gives us an insight into what she always has on hand; ready to cook and eat!

Pantry

  • Chia seeds – Fuel our good bacteria and full of protein.
  • Natural, unsalted nuts – Walnuts are high in omega 3 and brazil nuts have mineral selenium for the thyroid.
  • Canned lentils and legumes – Choose cheap, organic, ready-to-go cans for that extra protein and fibre.

Fridge

  • Organic eggs – Good for a quick hit of protein and energy.
  • Natural yoghurt – Another good hit of protein.

Freezer

  • Squeezed lemon juice – So you have lemon for hot water or tea ready to go!
  • Homemade icy poles – Filled with yogurt, juice and/or mango.
  • Frozen berries - Packed full of antioxidants with great fibre levels.
