What Does a Natural Food Chef & Holistic Wellness Counselor Eat in a Day? Find Out!

As a Holistic Wellness Counselor, cancer survivor, natural food chef, and founder, recipe developer and food blogger at Organically Thin, Mia Russo Stern is always asked the same question, "What do you eat in a day?" Mia loves to share what she has discovered in her journey to being cancer-free and healthy. This summer she'll launch Brooklyn Culinary Academy where she'll teach her recipes to the masses and spread her message of self-love and healthy eats. But for now, here is her typical day:

Upon waking I will have a warm mug of water with a splash of apple cider vinegar and a scoop of my own mix of metabolic spices to get my digestive engine going. I like to add cayenne, turmeric and black pepper. Then I will have a cup of organic coffee with a little coconut oil or cashew milk.

I usually wait an hour or so, listening to my body. If I feel hungry I will make either a vegetable omelette or a green smoothie with kale, pineapple, coconut water, cilantro, hemp seeds and spirulina. This is a fabulous way for me to know that I am getting my greens, my cancer-fighting sulfur compounds, detoxing elements of cilantro and healthy clean-plant protein in the hemp seeds. Hemp is also packed with omega 3s, which are great for youthful skin!

In between meals, I will enjoy many cups of tea. Either peppermint or dandelion which is very supportive of the liver, and will help with detoxing.

For lunch, often I will go out and have a huge organic salad with either organic hard-boiled eggs or wild salmon. I will ask for dressing on the side, or oil and vinegar on the side. Great additions to any salad would also be, steamed beets, berries, seaweed, a few nuts are OK as long as they have not been sugar coated.

More tea!

Dinner will be lite and a repeat of lunch is perfectly suitable. Oftentimes I will make a vegan soup like butternut squash and lentil, or broccoli zucchini basil soup, either served with a few tablespoons of pumpkin seeds and hemp seeds or organic poached chicken or fish.

Before bed, I will drink a glass of water with chlorophyll. This helps my body to stay hydrated overnight and helps to clean out any heavy metals or toxins, and makes my skin look vibrant when I wake.

I like Dr Jensen's Brand (flavorless) available at vitacost.com or amazon.com , I also like Natures Way brand available at any health food store in the vitamin section. I buy it in liquid form and add about 1 tablespoon to a large glass of water :)
