Eat Well With Nell has just been published, so I’ve got to look well at the moment! Food really plays a huge part in giving you loads of energy, clear wrinkle-free skin, strong nails and glossy hair and the recipes are all geared to making you look and feel great, so it really is a case of following my own advice. I always have breakfast so I have enough energy to get through the day and to help me resist my ‘elevenses, I’ll just have one chocolate biscuit’ weakness. In winter, I love fruity porridge made with muesli, pinhead oatmeal, ground sesame seeds and almonds. Lunch is usually a bowl of veggie soup such as sweet potato and coconut – so lots of good fibre, vitamin C and antioxidants. My evening meal is grilled fish or chicken, which has been spiced up with cardamom, cumin or coriander served with a nutty wholegrain, like pearl barley or buckwheat. I love vanilla rooibos tea, so I find it easy to avoid caffeine and if I go for a cycle I can indulge in my book’s last chapter, which is called ‘Some Things Are Worth Getting Fat For!’

Eat Well With Nell is out now published by Hachette
