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…

6-7am
Workout
Either a class or training myself at the local gym – or maybe a hotel room workout if I am travelling.

7.30am
Breakfast
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.

11am
Coffee: Oat milk flat-white.

1.30pm
Lunch
Probably some sort of bean legume-based dish – dahl, bean salad, beans on toast… I love beans and lentils!

4pm
Snack
Apple, raisins and cinnamon – all chopped up and popped in a bowl.

6.30pm
Dinner
A hearty meal such as chickpea curry, tofu and quinoa stirfry, or a Mexican-style burrito bowl. 

8pm
Dessert
Two large medjool dates.

10/10.30pm
Bedtime
