Our co-founder Elle Macpherson dishes on what she eats in a day, and shares three of her favourite recipes.

On waking: Filtered water and 2 heaped teaspoons of The Super Elixir™ and lemon juice or a green juice packed with vegetables and lemon juice.
Breakfast: I like a poached egg on spinach once a week. The other days, I alternate between just fresh fruit until lunchtime, or a chia or flaxseed pudding (but never within 2 hours of eating fruit).

Lunch: I generally always have greens with whatever I eat at lunch, which is often a vegan salad with a base of pulses, lentils or quinoa. I load it up with leafy greens and other vegetables, especially kale, spinach, sprouts and rocket.
Afternoon snack: I make a WelleCo Nourishing Protein smoothie with homemade almond or hemp milk. It’s easy to make when you are on-the-go. Being plant-based, our protein is easily absorbed by my body, boosts my metabolism and helps me feel fuller for longer.
Dinner: My evening meal sometimes consists of fresh line-caught fish, (the other day Cy caught crayfish!) with lots of greens, salad or vegetables. Or sometimes I will have just vegetables. I prefer to eat raw vegan as much as possible, and use a dehydrator which is a fabulous preparation alternative.
Snack: I don't have dessert every day, but I do love dark chocolate and vegan ice-cream. Our Nice-Cream Sandwich is a good combination of both – and it’s tastes really good!
