Filed under: Fitness — Tags: — admin @ 5:02 am

As a clinical nutritionist, author, and founder of JSHealth, it’s fair to say Jessica Sepel is clued in on all things food and wellness.

When she started selling her brand into boutique pharmacies, she had no idea it’d go global – and now, a product is sold every 27 seconds.

Though we’re well and truly past the time for setting New Year’s resolutions, it’s never too late to get some ideas of how to ‘clean up’ our diets a little bit.

9honey Coach took a peek inside Sepel’s kitchen for our Day on a Plate series, to find our her daily meals, number one indulgence food, and the item that’s always on her shopping list.

Breakfast

I love to make a smoothie, with added protein and probiotics, as it makes such a great nutritional breakfast, especially if you’re on the go. I have a recipe I call the Power Protein smoothie which is my go-to.

Lunch

My favourite lunch is a nourish bowl of some kind, usually salmon with brown rice & avocado!

Nourish bowls are balanced, nutrient-dense meals that let you be creative and build a satisfying dish in a flash.

Dinner

A one-pan recipe, always, which I have a list of on my site. They take just 30 minutes in total to make, yet are still incredibly nourishing and full of flavour.

Snacks

Greek yoghurt with berries and cinnamon is always a good snack, as it has protein to fill me up while also satisfying my sweet tooth.

If I’m on the go and don’t have time to make a snack, a JSHealth Protein Bar gets me through.

Berries and yoghurt

If you want to indulge, what’s your go-to favourite food?

Gelato all the way, or a delicious croissant on the weekends savoured with my once-daily coffee always hits the spot for me.

Embracing and living a healthy lie is all about indulging without feeling guilty – indulgence is part of a sustainable and balanced approach to wellness.

Do it mindfully, enjoy every bite, and continue nourishing your body without guilt or restriction. Joy is a nutrient too.

Is there one food you think that everyone should include in their diet, because of how beneficial it is to health?

Brussels sprouts! A true gift from nature, these nutritional powerhouses contain antioxidants that protect our cells as well as specialised compounds that assist in detoxifying the liver, an organ fundamental to our body’s natural purification processes. 

They are also rich in fibre which is important for fostering a thriving gut microbiome and digestive wellness. 

Are you taking any different or new approaches to your health and nutrition in 2024?

This year, I’ve embraced a philosophy of balance more than ever before. It’s all about listening – truly listening – to my body’s cues and honouring its wisdom.

Moving away from any form of restrictions and rigid rules has been incredibly freeing. It’s not just about eating intuitively, but also about nurturing a more compassionate relationship with myself!

Do you have any simple tips or advice for anyone who feels like they need to eat a ‘better’ diet?

My number one tip is to embrace small, gradual changes. Instead of overhauling your diet overnight, start by making simple swaps — think whole grains instead of refined ones, or water in place of sugary drinks. 

These manageable shifts can lead to sustainable, long-lasting habits. Remember that it’s about progress, not perfection. By taking it one step at a time, you’ll find that these healthier choices soon become second nature.
