Here’s what our formulator eats in a day to live and feel welle.



“I leave a glass of water on my bedside table so I can break my fast after sleeping. I’ll then have a cup of nettle or ginger tea. I no longer do a cup of warm water and lemon, for it was affecting the enamel on my teeth, so I do a two-litre version later in the day so the lemon is heavily diluted.

I snuggle back down in bed or find a sunny spot to sit for 20 minutes to start my day gently and do my prayers, gratitude and mindfulness. I check in with myself and God/The Universe before I start my day while the house is still quiet before I sort my three kids for school.

This allows me to be grounded and centred so my day flows and I calm my vagus nerve and nervous system, so if I do get triggered in the day, I can simply breathe and recentre. I actually wrote a blog about this a few days ago.

I will have an organic mould-free coffee (with one to three cloves) or some tea or matcha. Sometimes I add a clean plant milk depending on how I feel, but I always keep this one hour away from my daily Super Elixir™ because caffeine reduces the absorption of key nutrients into your cells.

I’ll make up two litres of my wellness water in a glass jug, which is a homemade natural electrolyte that I sip all day. If I don't do this, I forget to drink and my day feels much harder, both mentally and physically.



“I've never been a breakfast girl (neither is my mum), but I always have a cilantro and wheatgrass shot followed by my WelleCo smoothie. After the school run, I’ll do a form of movement like walking, cycling, ocean swimming, pilates, or gym/strength work. This WelleCo smoothie is great as a workout drink too.”


Simonè's Smoothie Recipe

2 teaspoons of The Super Elixir™ (Original)

1 scoop of WelleCo Nourishing Protein in Vanilla

250ml water

250ml fresh green veggie juice (usually a combo of celery, cucumber, romaine lettuce, lime and ginger)



“I love to have anapple, pear, peach,or berries and a handful or two of organic unroasted nuts (I’ll add Celtic, unprocessed sea salt to these). Some days I’ll have my chia pudding with one tablespoon of chia seeds, flaxseeds, Rejuv’s digestive complex powder with plant milk (no added seed oils) and coconut yoghurt with berries or a sliced pear. I’ll also be sure to have at least 500 ml of my wellness water.”



“Due to time constraints (typically being on Zoom all day with clients), I have a Mezze plate for lunch. Each day is different depending on what I have, but on average, I have raw veggies, crudités, a handful of sprouts, one to two tablespoons of olives, half an avocado, nut cheese, or some organic goat's cheese or hummus, plus some left-over protein from the night before, such as lentils, wild fish, or organic chicken. I’ve never been a big meat eater (way before it was fashionable), and I'm dairy intolerant, but I am okay with a little organic goat's cheese. I’ll also have some seeded crackers or dark rye sourdough with organic grass-fed butter or extra virgin olive oil.

Even though I'm busy, I use the time I save on food prep to find a sunny spot and sit and eat mindfully, chewing each mouthful 10–20 times. After healing my eating disorders, I do this as an act of self-love to nourish myself and catch my breath before the second half of the day.”



Simonè's Afternoon Essentials

500 ml of wellness water

Green tea or regular tea or matcha

1-2 tablespoons of almond butter

1-2 tbsp of hummus or guacamole

Plus a few squares of dark chocolate especially if my period is coming (I'm almost 52 & my periods are still like clockwork thanks to The Goddess Elixir that I formulated for Elle when she was my age.)



“Always a warm meal, maybe a side salad, but I do limit raw after four to support my digestive system.

I'm not a vegan; I healed my thyroid years ago, so I do well with mainly small, wild, line-caught fish like trout, seabass, or seabream. I love my granny's organic homemade chicken soup, or I go vegetarian if I had animal protein for lunch.

I do eat wild game too sometimes (never pork and very rarely beef or lamb; I just don't like the way they make me feel and the farm industry is far from ideal, so I limit consumption, but you need to decide what works for you).

My husband and two of my children do well on animal protein, but my daughter and I don't, which is why it is key to work on your bespoke wellness formula since we are all different.

I’ll have lots of veggies, including sweet potatoes, pumpkin and butternut squash. We also love Asian and Indian spices, so we make lots of stirfries and curries.

We love quinoa, broccoli or cauliflower rice, veggie noodles made from courgette or brown or black rice, or even regular potatoes. I often cook these for my kids. I’ve never been a big fan of pasta; it makes me feel too tired -- I'm not great with gluten.

I’m all about good fats—olive oil, coconut oil, nut oils, organic grass-fed butter—but never seed or vegetable oils. We teach our regular clients about healing condiments that you can add to any meal and we as a family always have them on our dinner table. They are wonderful not only for your gut microbiome but for your immune system too. Think raw grated garlic and ginger, cayenne pepper, unprocessed sea salt, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, kimchi or sauerkraut, turmeric and black pepper. Note: if the raw garlic is too strong to start out, then lightly cook.”



“I don't have a desert as I healed my sugar cravings many years ago, so most nights I have a WelleCo Sleep Welle Calming Tea and occasionally (more so around my period), I have The Evening Elixir and a few squares of dark chocolate.”



“Once the sun sets, I wear blue blocker glasses to help calm my nervous system and 30 minutes before I want to sleep, I lay on myTherasage red light PEMF mat to help wind down and promote deep restorative sleep. I also do some of my neuroscience techniques, where I think and feel one thing I did well that day and one thing I'm grateful for. I hold this feeling for a minute, to the point that it makes me smile, to offer myself love and self-compassion. Most of us are great at being critical, pulling our day apart with all the things we should have done, which just triggers us into emergency mode and works against restful healing sleep.”
