My Diet | What I Eat In A Day For Longevity


today I want to share with you all the
foods that I eat in a day and the reason I eat all these foods is to give me lots
of energy really great health vitality and anti-aging so if you’d like to know
more please keep watching hi I’m Schellea this is fabulous fifties a lifestyle
channel that explores fashion beauty and lifestyle for women over 50 and if
you’re a woman over 50 click subscribe and click the bell and you’ll be alerted
every time there’s a new video and they’ll all relate to you today I wanted
to share with you all the things that I eat because lots of people ask me what
do I eat in a day but I’ve got to tell you you may find this really really
boring because when I go to my sister’s place
she once presented me with a really nice platter made up of cardboard cutouts of
pretend food because she thinks that the food I eat is really really boring so
anyway I’m going to share it with you nonetheless and I want to share with you
that health and nutrition is like a really high value for me i value my
health so much because i’ve had the opposite to health for many years and
I’ve gone from healthy to unhealthy to healthy and now I’ve found things that
really work for my body to give me optimal health and in the past I’ve had
adrenal fatigue from so much stress and I’ve had digestion problems and I’ve had
you know feeling exhausted and lethargic and just generally unwell so what I’ve
done is I’ve done lots of research on foods that make me feel good and I’ve
just stuck to it because although it’s very disciplined and I don’t have any
processed foods but in that discipline for me comes feeling good and for me
feeling good way outweighs not feeling good and being unwell so let me go
through with you what I had I have a first breakfast what about second
breakfast a second breakfast snacks lunch and dinner first thing I
have when I get home from the gym is a smoothie and all the ingredients of this
smoothie tastes good combined it’s a good combination and
some days I have all of these products and some days I’ll have a green smoothie
and throw a whole lot of fresh produce into a blender and get it going so I
have a Vitamix blender and I feel the blender up 300 mils and I put one scoop
of protein powder this is a vegetarian protein powder and it’s full of amino
acids and it doesn’t have any fillers this is going to provide me with a high
dose of protein and it’s going to be alkalizing and full of antioxidants so
one scoop of this then I add 1 TSP of raw cacao to make it taste chocolate
it’s all in the recipe this is really yummy then I add a very heaped teaspoon
of spirulina and I have this every single day because it’s very high in
protein it’s full of antioxidants it’s another superfood it’s going inside
my body it cleans out anything that shouldn’t be there and I love this every
single day I have half a teaspoon of maca I have this for my hormones to help
regulate my hormones I have one bison capsule and I break the capsule in half
so the powder goes into the smoothie this is for my hair and nails it’s
vitamin b7 then I have a half a teaspoon of glutamine which is another anti-aging
amino acids I’m going to do a video on glutamine because it’s a really great
anti-aging supplement so half a teaspoon of this and then I use one scoop of
perfect hydrolyzed collagen which is more amino acid so everything that’s
going into this smoothie has a reason behind it and it gets me set up for the
day gives me lots of energy and it’s yummy last thing I put in my smooth
is my broccoli sprouts that are frozen so I put about half of that amount in
and that is going to give me sulphuraphane and I’ve just done a video on
this and I’ll leave a link up here to show you the benefits of this magic
superfoods that you should all be having at our age so yep I put that in and then
turn the blender on spin spin spin and it’s best to keep the blender going for
a little bit longer if you’ve got the broccoli sprouts in it so it all mixes
up and it’s smooth to drink for my actual breakfast I have these things I
make my own paleo bread so this recipe for paleo toast is full of beautiful
ingredients and you feel like you’re full from eating toast or bread but it’s
not doing any of the damage that gluten and grains can do to some people’s
bodies which it does to mine so I have toast and then on top of the toast I
slice avocado and then on top of that I put sauerkraut and I make this myself
this is the easiest thing in the world to make and I’ll leave a recipe on my
website for this one but this sauerkraut is really amazing for the gut and pretty
much everything I eat is to give my gut the best chance at being healthy and
strong so fermented foods like sauerkraut are
amazing to have in your diet and I thought that I wouldn’t like this but I
love it and with these ingredients they all balance each other out and it’s
beautiful and then on top of that I have my broccoli sprouts so all just goes on
top and it’s this big and it’s so delicious
again these are amazing watch the video on broccoli sprouts and the benefits of
soft urethane you’re going to want to try this for sure so that’s my breakfast
during the day when I’m hungry I’ll eat because I don’t want
deprived myself and I’ll just have sunflower seeds or raw cashews or raw
almonds and I usually try and have some fruit I eat the nuts for protein and
good fats and I eat some fruit for fiber so that’s my snacks I also drink aloe
vera juice which I make myself and this is the plant and I have a video on how
to make this this is an amazing stuff for you to be putting inside your body
there’s so many benefits of aloe juice and I’ll leave a link up here to show
you the video on that and for lunch and dinner I’ll eat these veggies so I’ll
cook them in different ways some days I’ll put it all through a juicer and
have juice and other days I’ll put these veggies through my food processor and
I’ll do a stir-fry or a soup or something like that so that’s about how
much I would have sometimes I might have a little bit more depends on how hungry
I am and for flavoring I’ll just have
Himalayan rock salt and pepper lemons and coconut oil will go in most things
because at most meals I’ll have some sort of healthy fat with what I’m eating
and nothing beats coconut oil for keeping your skin really healthy and if
you’ve got dry skin like I have this taken internally is amazing for dry skin
because when you don’t have it you notice it’s missing so I’ll have that
every day another thing I might snack on is olives and the the meat from the
olives is really great for our hair and our skin and our eyes but make sure if
you’re going to eat olives for health benefits the olives just without any
treatment at all are much better for you another thing I’ll have over my veggies
or in my veggies is linseed when you eat linseeds just like this you don’t
receive the benefits of all the goodness that’s in them all the beautiful oils
you have to meal them and then when you mill them they become
active and then you put them in your body and it starts doing the work plus
every day I drink one and a half to two of these two-liter bottles of water I
use an alkalized water purifier which oxygenates the water and I believe
that’s amazing for adding extra hydration and for sweet things I have my
homemade chocolate and I’ll leave a recipe up here for that this is amazing
you make it yourself it’s super super easy everything here is
so easy to make and this will fight any sugar cravings you have because it’s
natural sugar it tastes amazing it fills you up and it stops the cravings so
check this recipe out because you’re going to love that too so that’s
everything I eat in the day I also take lots of vitamins and other supplements
to keep me strong and healthy I don’t really eat anything other than this I
don’t have sugar or coffee or processed foods
because they don’t make me feel good and I understand that it’s very very
difficult to give those things up but for me it was an easy thing to do and
it’s easy to be disciplined because I’m feeling great so thank you so much for
watching please give a thumbs up if you enjoyed this video and share it with any
of your friends who might be interested in eating a more healthy diet so you can
start feeling great and have lots of energy and feel really good every single
day thank you so much for watching and have a beautiful week

  1. Love your channel! Just after watching your vid on broccoli sprouts, I ordered everything needed to grow my own sprouts. I followed your process & it was amazing! I had sprouts with in 3 days. They taste so good. Thank you for the tip, beautiful lady! 😊

  2. My Dear Schellea…for the saukraut…since it is in a clay pot with a lid…sauerkrautpot….it stays in it all the way to around March when it starts warming up outside…as long as it is cold in room and it can not be over 15 C….once is fermented the colder the better…when it gets warm than my mother puts in a mason jars with a lid…and sterilize them..to preserve taste and its quality……let them cool down and than put in the fridge…mind you this is in European weather where we have 4 seasons and cool winters…have a lovely day….big hug…Jana

  3. I think Your sister needs to watch your videos. I have almost the same diet with fresh greens and supplements and kraut (except I also eat beef and chicken). Same supplements, same vitamixer too :).

  4. Thanks so much. Great info. Thanks also for valuing nutrition!

  5. Great Smoothie recipe! Green Smoothies are one of my daily staples. Love your Channel! Lovely greetings from Italy!!!

  6. Hi, I'm 68 and noticed my hair in thinning, It's curly and does grow, but I can feel it thinning. I do workout and take supplements. You have such beautiful thick hair. Do you think its the biotin or collagen or both together that helps? Love your video's, you are beautiful inside and out. Thanks for your help.

  7. Just found your channel, absolutely loving it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  8. Love your videos, just one comment. Coconut oil is great to put on your skin, but not a healthy fat source to consume regularly. American Heart Association, Cleveland Clinic, etc…all recognize this. Patients are told to avoid or limit internal intake. Olive and Avocado oil are both much healthier options. Coconut is solid at room temperature and a very saturated fat, that often raises Cholesterol and LDL levels. We see this in patients often because they believe what they read, which is not evidenced based practice. Many patients lipids, including triglycerides, increase after increasing consumption regularly. We see a clinical decrease and improved lipid level once they are reeducated that coconut oil is not healthy to be consumed regularly.

  9. Just discovered your channel and love your anti-aging diet and exercise tips. Just curious why you haven’t changed to green beauty products. You should research the toxic ingredients in conventional makeup and skin care. There are lots of wonderful healthy alternatives with ingredients you don’t mind rubbing onto your body’s biggest organ, your skin.

  10. Do you ever go out to eat? If so, how do you eat healthy?

  11. The way I eat is very similar to yours. We're going on vacation for two weeks and I was wondering if you have a video on your Tips for eating out or eating when you're on vacation or at a party, or when you are invited to someone's house. Thank you.

  12. I'm not over 50 but I want to stop wrinkles in it's tracks for as long as possible. Which is how I got to your channel.

  13. You look absolutely stunning and so natural. I'm hoping that you make a app with all of the guidelines and some recipes.

  14. Can you please do a video on the gluten free bread you mentioned. I miss having bread since I gave it up. Thank you

  15. Tqsm😘

  16. I am a vegetarian, do you have any recommendations for a collagen substitute to get some of the same benefits?

  17. Do you have an egg sub for that bread? for vegans? I would love to try it! By the way I love your channel!

  18. I recently found you and I do appreciate your videos. I don’t think I can do this video but most definitely it has some good things to do occasionally. But it is a little to strict for me…thanks for the suggestions though.

  19. Oh my I’m sorry buts there’s no way I would eat your diet I do like the idea of the broccoli sprouts as my husband has incurable cancer I’m on the search for all cancer fighting foods I then plan to design my own recipes with the help of my mum and son who are both chefs

  20. What is your opinion on broccoli and thyroid issues? I’ve read to avoid crucifurous veg if you have thryroid issues, which would also include cabbage.

  21. Thank you….

  22. I thank you so much this really change my life

  23. I ordered the broccoli sprouts kit this evening😃

  24. Hi, thank you, an amazing video, and how about, Himalayan brine, cayenne pepper and niacin?

  25. I'm obsessed with health too and I'm 33. I take the same supplements as you and also vegan but cheat with vegan processed foods sometimes. Hopefully I'll be as graceful and beautiful as you when I reach 50!

  26. Why don’t you just take a probiotic pill rather than sauerkraut for breakfast. Sauerkraut for breakfast?? Yuk. I also talked with a doctor that does colonoscopies and he said don’t invest aloe Vera because it softens the intestines too much.

  27. Look you are cool and l like this video more than the broccoli sprouts one as you are focusing more on health and less on looks you do realise that the healthiest people on earth that live the longest also have wrinkles so focusing on your looks is misleading as u have Botox, so keep talking about health

  28. Vey inspirational! I’ll bet your sister doesn’t look half as healthy and beautiful as yourself!

  29. Hi first time watching your videos today. Really good information, thank you. I have been looking for a good, smooth tasting Cacao, I’ve heard most are pretty bitter. I looked up the one in your video and it seems like it’s only in AU. Was wondering if you or anyone on here knows how I would get it in the US, specifically Fl.

  30. What does your family eat? Your husband and kids? Take the biotin at night as it helps you sleep

  31. Wow ! You keep your age well, thank you for the your recipe.

  32. Hi Schellea, I just stumbled upon your channel and have subscribed.  I'm 52 and have adopted a low carb diet with intermittent fasting.  I cease eating after 7pm and then don't eat again until 12pm the next day.  I have shed unwanted fat and feel much better for it.  I think you look terrific and I love the idea of sprouting so I am going to start this myself.  I also agree that fermented foods are beneficial so I'm going to try your sauerkraut recipe. Great channel, thanks!

  33. Do you have a Kangen water machine AND, can u do an updated what I eat in a day if anything changed? Just found your channel and loving it!

  34. Just discovered you and love you. I also do intermitting fasting which i also think is a very helpful tool for health:) CHEERS!! Love from Canada

  35. I found it…lol. I know you had to have one! Love it…Thank you Theresa

  36. I would love to be able to eat like this😔. Don't have the will power.
    I love your channel and you are a beautiful lady.

  37. I recently started watching your videos! I have really enjoyed them! This was a great one and obviously what you're eating shows because you look healthy and beautiful!!

  38. When I reach 45ish 50ish I want to be like you s0 beautiful inside/out Thanks for sharing

  39. So happy there is another life minded woman out there as myself. I too enjoy how I feel eating real food. Thanks!

  40. Watching this one now!

  41. Thank you for your post. I lost 163pounds and I eat most everything you eat. I am very mindful of my intake. I study endlessly about what could help restore the body for full recovery from a failed illness. I understand people saying MS and Parkinson's disease is not curable. Well I have cured the whole thing. Bedbound, wheelchair, walker, cane, and now I'm walking free. All on the Gerson therapy.

  42. Was the boy that said “what’s the second breakfast” your son? Thank you for sharing

  43. Isn’t Coconut oil a saturated fat and high in cholesterol ?

  44. My best friend has been raving about your YouTube channel, so now we both follow you. Your videos are inspirational, motivating, uplifting and I love them! You truly do all you can to promote women.

  45. Great video! Would love it if you did more what you eat in a day and nutrition supplements.

  46. No meat either? You sure look very young and healthy.
    I'll have to try some of these things.
    Thank you for the list.

  47. I enjoy your videos I would say it’s a full time job doing what you do especially if you have kids and work!!!!but if people can do a little of it I’m sure there is definitely improvement and not just physically but as you say you have to work out your mental too! Great job you do!

  48. No way is that boring because it’s sooo good to put good food into your body I’m with you 😊

  49. I can't find your protein powder, where can I buy it in the US?

  50. Would you consider a video describing your daily schedule: when you work–out, take your shake, supplements, eat, etc? I am challenged.fitting it all in!

  51. Woaw!! Your 70. You look like 50🥇👏👍🏻

  52. am from kenya ,ilove and follow your vidios,thank you

  53. So glad I found your channel. So many useful tips. You look beautiful by the way.

  54. Please tell me how much is a scoop of protein powder?

  55. I seriously can’t believe how similar our smoothies (&more) are! I’d love to learn how to make your bread! I have a wheat intolerance. Must get going as well with the broccoli sprouts! Thank you Schellea!, 🙏🤗💛❤️🙋

  56. wow love your channel xx thank you

  57. Do you have a video that talks more about adrenal fatigue, and feeling lethargic,
    and how you overcame theses health issues?

  58. I really want to change my whole diet and I know I could do it except my partner is not on board with this and enjoys typically unhealthy foods and expects me to cook it and eat with him. I don’t really want to cook different meals but how do I get around feeling guilty if I cook and eat healthy foods for myself and not eat the same as him? He really tries to sabotage my healthy eating attempts

  59. Other than really good sunscreen, and good genes, diet is key. so many folks don't want to make the changes out of habit. The main thing that
    keeps my skin looking younger is yoga, the stress relief, the increased
    circulation all add up to a glowy look that is from having energy. And
    finally meditation or prayer, time where you are simply quiet is also
    key. Its' got to start from the inside.

  60. Wonderful video. I have to write down everything for the shake. I usually make a fruit and veggie shake with the protein powder. I definitely need the Biotin for my nails. Thank you for sharing you daily foods with us 🙂

  61. I am in the same boat & have also figured out what I can eat and still feel okay. It's very limited but like you, I value feeling well now over eating things things that make me feel terrible. My whole family though, even my parents in their 70'd/80's, can eat whatever they want! How do you handle going out to eat with family or family get-togethers for holidays?

  62. No beans brown rice or hummus? You look great. I just started juicing I use fruit veggies flaxseed and vegan protein powder I live it. Hopefully it will help me lose the weight

  63. Love your tips and your so BEAUTIFUL ☺️

  64. Thank you so much for the information that you shared with all of us. Much appreciated! Could you tell me what water purifier you use? I'm struggling to get something that's good. Thank you in advance.

  65. I have just found your channel and love all the videos I have watched so far thank you.

  66. I wish I had the money to use all of those wonderful healthy things !

  67. Thank you for your videos. You look amazing! I mostly eat organic fruits, organic vegetables, organic protein, and superfoods. I am surprised that you are not using organics! Mostly fruits, vegetables, and food that are not organic are full of pesticides and hormones (in case it is meat). And they can even be GMO.

  68. I started maca but people were using it to gain wait so I stoped. I liked the energy but I like being lean. What’s you opinion?

  69. Hi, I love to see your videos! Thank you it’s always very good information. God bless you 🙏👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🌸💐🤗

  70. What is your water filter and alkalinizer?

  71. Thank you for sharing, you do look amazing. many of the items you eat are similar to the book I'm reading the Plant Paradox. I only follow this routine 70%, cant seem to not indulge. But it is good to see you achieve this healthy way of eating giving us ladies inspiration

  72. Love watching your videos!! You make 50 look very young!! Beautiful! Thank you so much for all of this advise!

  73. Hi Schellea, I love your channel and thanks for your lovely replies. To be honest, this smoothy looks a little expensive to put together and not an appealing colour. I do like Broccoli though and trust you that it tastes good. Ooh, I like the idea of 'safe', Paleo bread, but again Avocado is too much for my budget. I love snacking on a piece of fruit or raw Almonds, now your talking! I also want to try Aloe juice as well. Thank you again xx

  74. You are absolutely amazing and the best inspiration for us ladies over 50. You’ve changed my negative mindset and I can’t wait for my whole mind and body transformation. Thank you 🙏 thank you 🙏 thank you!

  75. Just found your channel. Inspiring me to do something NOW! Can't find the bell to click though. Xx

  76. awesome, on the same journey…if I dont feel good I always look to what I am eating.

  77. Wow! hmm I’m not sure I can give up chicken wings.

  78. Do you have any studies that show benefits of collagen? Many I have read said it’s a waste of money and doesn’t help.

  79. Went to the link you provided in your description for the recipes and I just got your home page with no recipe links. Any way you can give links to the recipes you mentioned in your video? Thanks.

  80. Hi! I want to follow your daily food intake. The link below for the protein powder it's not what you show in this video. I searched Amazon for prana primal powder and found only primal fuel [in diff packaging]…is this the same product? If this list [11mo old] is not your most current, can you direct me to the most recent. Thanx so much.

  81. What do you do for breakfast and other meals for that matter when you are eating out?

  82. Love ur vdos

  83. I am so jealous….I wish I had the time to "make" everything I consume. I just don't have that luxury. WHat can I get otherwise? Also, I cannot eat vegetarian or vegan. I have only watched three videos of yours at this time…but meat is a must.

  84. I have a 2nd breakfast too and it always reminds me of the LOTR clip you showed.

  85. I find so inspiring 🙂
    Could you help me with one ingredient: leansy ? Linsy ? Sth brown 🙂 what is it ?

  86. What a diet!

  87. Haha the story about cardboard cutouts reminds me of a story from when we were in our 30s. We were visiting relatives, and my bro-in-law decided to help with breakfast. He set out bowls of dead grass, leaves and twigs for my husband and me, saying that’s like what we eat. It was all in fun, but now we’re 30 years older, and both of us are going strong. Bro-in-law? He’s totally immobile, wheelchair bound, terribly obese, and now in assisted living facility (he’s very close to full-time care needs). Oh, and did I mention he’s YOUNGER than us?

  88. I have ordered the sprouts too! Love all your information❣️ Thanks 🐚 for all your input! Now if we could all be beautiful like you! Well, I think we are striving for beauty, healthy and success in our endeavors to be all of that! I have ordered that special oil for my hair too! Can’t wait to try that as well! Whenever I see a video that could help my mom, I do send it to her because she could benefit from your instruction and she’s in her 70’s!
    Thank you 🙏🏽 for all you do., 💗💁🏻‍♀️ Mia

  89. Great diet!

  90. Don't waste your money guys on collagen supplements. It does not get into your bloodstream and plump the skin. This is not true

  91. Most of your smoothly come from a jar ?

  92. I’m way too busy for some of the homemade items I found Herbalife has a lot of these in there supplements, but I just started sprouting!

  93. All I can say is, it's really working for you because you are gorgeous !!! You go girl!!! I'm counting calories trying to find what works for me. Still hittin tweaked it but I'm still trying thank you for all the exercise videos too 🤗

  94. I love veggies!!

  95. Oh yes chocolate is my favorite!!!!

  96. Oh no, no coffee how did you do it!!

  97. Very healthy 👏👏

  98. You're amazing and inspiring. Thank you!

  99. As a new follower and a Holistic Nutritionist as well, I must say I absolutely LOVE your content! You are a beautiful lady and such an inspiration!! Oh and I am 54 years young so I appreciate you even more of a fabulous role model! Thank you!

  100. Hi there, I have Crohn's disease I am 53 and I am allergic to chocolate and each day somethings I can't eat and next I can eat… I am on many medicines that make me gain extreme weight and bloating- please help if you have any ideas
