SB0115Beauty_The Food Diaries Li-Lin Wong

ON-THE-GO Li-Lin Wong, founder of Loopz Fitness is all about making exercise possible every day even if you only have 10 minutes. HEALTHY FOOD RULE: “There are “5 Principles of Wise Eats” that I list in my 6 Week Lifestyle Reboot with Wong Li-Lin book—Eat close to food source, eat more plant based and less wheat and sugar and have raw food till four. Eat less chew more.” BREAKFAST:
“I have a rotation of breakfasts such as carrot muesli, juice, a bowl of fruits or oatmeal that I enjoy. I like to start my day right, with lots of vegetables or fruits, as it’s the easiest meal to control. Although, on occasion, I do love a buttery flakey croissant!” LUNCH: “Depends where my meetings take me. I generally eat less carbs at lunch time to ensure I still perform well after lunch but have a lot of vegetables with whatever I eat.” DINNER: “I buck the trend here and actually have a little more carbs at night as they help me sleep better. And still lots of vegetables.” GUILTY FOODS: “Salt and Vinegar crisps for savoury moods and Famous Amos cookies for sweet moods. Sometimes I want some fat and texture, and crisps do the trick for me. I’ve eaten the cookies forever so it’s comfort food in a way.” TIPPLE: “I mostly drink red wine a couple of times a week or less.” EXERCISE: “I work out using Loopz Fitness, a resistance band I designed and try to do at least one move a day. And I do a short run twice or three times a week.”

MULTI-TASKER Racing driver Claire Jedrek believes that healthy eating habits which are instilled at an early age will follow you for life. HEALTHY FOOD RULE: “If it comes out of a packet it’s not fresh. I try my best to stay away from processed foods and buy fresh items and cook at home as much as I can.” BREAKFAST: “I love Fage 0% Natural Yoghurt. I top it with lots of fresh or frozen berries, bananas and a dash of maple syrup. My parents always made me have sit-down breakfasts, so it’s something instilled in me that I will one day pass on to my kids.” LUNCH: “Much of my teen years were spent at school eating homemade sandwiches, I never bought noodles. Fast forward 15 years and I’m still making them. I buy whole grain bread and I fill them with fresh ingredients like baby spinach.” DINNER: “I limit heavy red meats as I find them harder to digest, leaving me feeling dull the next day. If I go out, my choice of dinner will always be Japanese—I love salmon and tuna sashimi.” GUILTY FOODS: “Butter and cheese. I really don’t relate to people who don’t eat cheese.” TIPPLE: “A good shiraz.” EXERCISE: “I need a certain amount of cardio to be able to be race fit and maintain concentration. I run three times a week, cycle and swim. Afterwards, I spend 40 minutes stretching. I’ve never been a yoga person, but technique takes patience, which helps when it comes to racing.”

YOGA GURU Malvina Kang, founder of Hom Yoga in Singapore believes moderation is key, but will have her chocolate fix every now and again. HEALTHY FOOD RULE: “Eating a mainly organic and whole foods diet. So a diet centered on fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes is my mantra.” BREAKFAST: “I’ve recently been drinking green smoothies for breakfast. They are super yummy. I make them with three different vegetables such as kale, broccoli and cucumber, and one fruit like banana, and mix with oats, rice milk, a splash of vanilla essence and a teaspoonful of stevia.” LUNCH: “I love having a mixed salad, perhaps with a salmon as a protein choice. On days where I need something heavier, a vegetable lentil stew is wonderful as it is high in protein and very nutritious.” DINNER: “Grilled fish, with a side of potatoes and mixed greens is a regular for dinner. Fish is low in calories and fat, yet provides a good source of omega 3 fatty acids.” GUILTY FOODS: “Definitely chocolate! Most of the time, I gravitate toward healthy eating, but I enjoy food too much to pass up on a fabulous piece of chocolate cake.” TIPPLE: “I don’t drink at all right now as I’m pregnant, however, when I did drink, I would enjoy a glass of red wine with my meal.” EXERCISE: “Yoga! I try to get a practice in almost every day if possible. My practice keeps me constantly open to the possibilities around me.” ■
