Day on a Plate with health influencer Zanna Van Dijk
One look at Zanna Van Dijk’s impressive thread of credentials, and your jaw will instinctively drop. An adidas global ambassador, trainer, blogger, vlogger, BBC podcast host, author and co-founder of the female-empowering @thegirlgains, we’re not quite sure how she actually does it.
With a radiating complexion and that insanely-defined, sculpture-like physique, we wanted to go behind the grid and find out what food fuels this bona fide wonder woman. And it seems when Zanna’s not plane-bound or heaving weights in the gym, she’s nourishing her body with a bulletproof regime.
Today, she tours us through a typical Day on her Plate…
Either a class or training myself at the local gym – or maybe a hotel room workout if I am travelling.
This is usually a smoothie or oatmeal.
My smoothie is frozen banana, oat milk, vegan protein, peanut butter, agave and maca. My oatmeal contains grated carrot, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger – and is topped with raisins and peanut butter.
Coffee: Oat milk flat-white.
Probably some sort of bean legume-based dish – dahl, bean salad, beans on toast… I love beans and lentils!
Apple, raisins and cinnamon – all chopped up and popped in a bowl.
A hearty meal such as chickpea curry, tofu and quinoa stirfry, or a Mexican-style burrito bowl.
Two large medjool dates.
