We’re obsessed with hearing about what other people eat all day erryday and we just know that you’re all as curious as we are! There’s something so intriguing about knowing the secrets of a healthy foodie. Follow along with this new series where we find out what a wide range of successful health-loving ladies eat in a day.

This week we chat with the lovely Jenna Mullinger, founder of online conscious beauty store, Oh Natural.

Your go-to brekkie is…

Porridge and frozen berries usually! My boys love it and it’s super easy to make for everybody. Sometimes I’ll mix it up with the fruit and add things like chia seeds or LSA to give it a bit more punch.

Your go-to lunch is…

I seem to make kumara chips with surprising regularity! I also love a good fresh salad sandwich with the works. At least 50% of the time though I’ll make some amazing healthy platter type lunches for my boys and then stand in the kitchen snacking on something easy like toast though haha!

Your go-to dinner is…

Hiding veges from my boys seems to be key so I love a big vege lasagne where you can sneak in so much good stuff that goes relatively undetected! (Why oh why does it have to be this way!…)

Dessert or no dessert…

No dessert usually! Unless we have people over for dinner it’s just too much extra time to make and clean up in between that rushy time of dinner and the boys bath/bed times!

What you reach for when a snack attack hits…

At the moment, I’m loving the Tom & Luke mint flavoured snack balls! These are so great to have on hand especially when you are after something a bit sweet!

Tom & LukeYour fave foodie destination…

The best food I’ve eaten has been on holiday years ago in Santorini… Delicious Greek salads for dinner, amazing yogurt and fruit salads for brekkie and gorgeous views to look at the whole time.

Three foods you can’t live without…

Chocolate, definitely chocolate. I love the Trade Aid chocolate that we stock as it’s fair trade, organic and the wrapper is compostable so I feel pretty good about eating it – the Kerala coconut one really floats my boat! Also at this stage in my life – coffee. Which I am forever trying to give up! Maybe when I get some more sleep one day I’ll be better! And hmm… Freshly baked bread. The smell of it!!!!!! Sigh!

Your ultimate foodie indulgence…

First thing that came to my head was Pavlova. I could eat sooo much Pavlova / I could never be so full that I couldn’t eat Pavlova haha (it’s like air, right!?).

The recipe that’ll always get you drooling is…

The desserts… Always!
