Elle Macpherson (54) houdt haar bijnaam ‘The Body’ in ere. Ze heeft -hoe kan het ook anders- goede (eet)gewoontes en rituelen om haar goddelijke tempel te onderhouden. Laten we ze sans gêne jatten.

Elle Macpherson en haar beste dagelijkse rituelen:

  1. Bewegen! “Move your body for 45 minutes every day! Even if it is just a walk, find the time. Book it in like a business appointment.”
  2. Kruid slim en verstandig. “Switch black pepper for cayenne pepper. It is a fantastic metabolism boost and has a whole host of other health benefits.”
  3. Zalm! “‘Once a weak I cook salmon’.
  4. Stop met diëten! “Skip Dieting! Our bodies need loves, laughs, quiet time and nourishment (fuel) to stay happy, healthy and strong to do all the things we want to do.”
  5. Haar favoriete work-out: “I schedule my daily workouts for 8:30 a.m. after the school run. I’ll do a different sport every day if I can. I mix it up, but no matter what, I do 45 minutes of something a day. I love the outdoors. If I’m by the water, I love to paddle board, surf, swim laps or water ski. I also love to hike or run for about 45 minutes a day. Staying hydrated is so important, and I always have 16 ounces of water during my workout.”
  6. Slapen! ” Can’t live without my seven hours of sleep a night and my friends and family who constantly make me smile.”
  7. Mooi van binnenuit. “I believe if I nourish my cells from the inside it will show on the outside. That’s why my food and beauty philosophy is beauty from the inside out.”
  8. Eén detox-dag per week! Bij voorkeur een maandag. “Add a detox day. Since toxins live in our body fat and we want to be less toxic so we look and feel youthful and prevent disease, then we need to stay healthy and lean. Try adding a ‘detox day’ – every Monday, try to eat vegan for the day and have one to two veggie juices so you can balance for some of the fun you had over the weekend.”
  9. Ontbijten is een must. “At around 6:30 a.m. I eat a breakfast that often contains protein. It is either one poached egg on sunflower or dark rye bread (wheat free), or some Canadian bacon (no fat or preservatives or antibiotics). I also like to mix it up and will have oatmeal with agave, half of a grapefruit or some blueberries. I love an espresso, and will have one followed by 16 ounces of water.”

Een gezonde combinatie van een beetje discipline, een beetje goede gewoontes én heel veel goesting. Plus de goede genen. (En – hoogstwaarschijnlijk voldoende hulp in huis en keuken haha.)
