Eat Smart – Tip #3

Let’s go green – what I’m saying here girls and boys is EAT YOUR VEGIES! And let’s not just leave it at the green ones, get stuck into the red, yellow, orange and purple ones too – the more colourful the better it is for YOU!

How Much – How Often? You can have pretty well as much as you like, but your plate should have AT LEAST 2 handfuls of leafy green and other colourful vegetables at each meal as well as your 1 handful of lean protein (refer to Tip #1) – and there’s nothing stopping you from enjoying them as snacks throughout the day either!

Vegies pack an awesome punch when it comes to fibre, vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants – they’ll keep you body functioning like a well oiled machine, boost your immune system and prevent many chronic diseases.fruitveggie1

I’m Cherene – a wife, mother, grandmother and founder/owner of Defy Gravity Fitness studio. My husband, Graham and I live in Newcastle (Australia), with our fur child, Axel – and our tribe of adult children are all off living their own best lives. I guess you could say I was a “late bloomer” – ie. it wasn’t until my 40’s that I discovered my love for all things fitness, nutrition, health and wellness. It started in 2004 when my eyes were opened to the fitness/sport of Pole Dancing just coming to Australia. We wanted IN, and by 2005 my daughter Bailey and I had opened our first pole studio – Pol-arise Fitness & Dance (which is still operating today under Bailey’s management). It wasn’t long before we also expanded into Aerial Yoga, Barre, Pilates, Suspension Fitness and Yoga, and I became a qualified Nutrition, Health and Life Coach (amongst other things). DEFY GRAVITY FITNESS brings together over 15 years of knowledge, and fusing it with Functional and Suspension fitness to create my EXCLUSIVE new Bungee and Suspension based fitness classes.
