She’s launched three websites, is an international model and influencer, as well as being a global wanderer – but all that hasn’t stopped Natascha Elisa from indulging in one of her main passions: health food. Dividing her time between Australia, LA and Bali, the one thing that remains constant in Natascha’s life is her enthusiasm for living a healthy lifestyle.
Strongly believing in the importance of a healthy body and mind, Natascha launched plant-based recipe website cleancookingrecipes.com to go alongside her other two platforms: In Search of Sadie and Models of Compassion. With a focus on organic recipes that are gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, intolerance-friendly, and plant-based, we were intrigued to see what foods you would typically see Natascha putting on her own plate.
Here, we chat to her to find out what we’d find on Natascha’s plate come meal times…
- Wake up and pull with coconut oil for approx. 10 min
- Drink a big glass of lemon water
- Make a coffee, blend with cacao, coconut butter, raw cacao, cacao butter, cinnamon, coconut sugar and a pinch of cayenne.
Dance class, boxing, yoga or a big walk.
Chia Seeds soaked in coconut milk overnight OR a smoothie (this is one of my favourites here!)
Almonds, seeds, dates or fresh fruit.
Brown rice cakes with coconut oil, tahini, avocado, sprouts, sauerkraut OR a big leafy green salad full of grated veggies with fresh lemon and olive oil.
Carrots and avocado OR seeded crackers and tahini
I usually make a macro bowl – brown rice, roast sweet potato or tempe, leafy greens, chickpeas, grated carrot and beetroot, and steamed broccoli topped with miso tahini dressing & lots of fresh herbs.
Coconut ice-cream or raw chocolate and a herbal tea.
Bed at 11pm-ish
I like to stretch before bed, take a bath, or read to wind down.
