Hemsley + Hemsley 7 day healthy eating plan
By Brigid Moss Posted on May 25, 2017
Don’t diet. Instead, get into the Hemsley + Hemsley habit of cooking real, healthy food
Welcome to the Hemsley + Hemsley Red Reboot eating plan. It's a delicious way to eat fantastic real food that makes you feel amazing.
‘Every now and then people need a little nudge and reset, to get back into balance,' says Melissa. 'So we took all of our favourite recipes, and put them together to make a simple seven-day menu to repeat over 30 days of the Red Reboot.
‘Our philosophy is to take people back to basics, remove the processed food,' says Jasmine. Shop and prep at the weekend, freeze extra portions, and you’ll have a week of almost-instant breakfasts, portable lunches, and quick suppers. ‘We’ve seen, from people who’ve adopted the way of eating in our book, The Art Of Eating Well, that small changes can have a huge impact,' promises Jasmine. 'This month, you’re going to feel better than any other month, ever.’ We're in.
Try to eat your main meal at lunchtime, and eat supper early, to digest and sleep well. Go to bed by 9.30pm for a relaxing wind-down routine, and you’ll be asleep by 10pm. Cut down or cut out caffeine – swap coffee for our zingy Pep-up Tea.
Shop or shopping delivery. Make your bone broth. Vegetarians can replace this in the recipes with water or vegetable broth but you’ll also need to add in other sources of protein and fat such as eggs, tempeh and mung beans.
Put the oven on. Mix the bread ingredients and bake. Toast the quinoa flakes and mix with the other porridge ingredients. By the time the bread is baked, the squash should be tender. Make the dhal.
A large pot, slow cooker or pressure cooker for the bone broth. A glass jar and lid for the Pep-Up Tea. A stainless steel Thermos flask and a glass sandwich box or greaseproof paper for lunch. Organic/naturally reared bones from your butcher. Coconut oil and/or ghee for cooking.
THE stunning foodie sisters, who keep the A-list perfectly nourished, reveal 10 golden rules for eating and living well
Melissa and Jasmine’s recipes avoid gluten, grains and anything overly processed[PH]
Butter, bone broth and buckwheat aren’t exactly the most glamorous of foods.
Yet according to sisters Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley they are the superfoods we should be packing into our diets.
Former model Jasmine, 34, and footwear brand manager Melissa, 28, may seem unlikely food gurus. However it was their hectic lifestyles and ensuing health issues, which included indigestion, eczema and stress, that inspired them to turn to their diets to find a cure.
They set up a healthy food delivery company that quickly established a host of celebrity fans including Millie Mackintosh and Gaby Roslin and have just published their first cookbook.
“We realised wellness begins from within,” explains Jasmine. “Eating real, unprocessed food allowed us to be happier, healthier and more energised naturally. The idea is to love what you eat and look and feel like the best version of yourself.”
The sisters’ recipes steer clear of gluten and grains plus anything overly processed or chemical-laden.
Melissa says: “We use good, natural fats and natural sugars such as maple syrup and raw honey, things that will make food taste good without causing stress to your body.”
Here they share their top tips for eating and living well.

1 STOP COUNTING CALORIES
There is so much more to a good diet than calorie counting. The key isn’t to limit calorie intake but instead to use whole ingredients and unrefined natural sweeteners. Your body will soon start to function much better.
Fad diets may help you lose a pound or two but as soon as you stop you will pile the weight back on. When the goal is feeling great within yourself rather than just being slim this won’t happen.
It sounds obvious but getting enough sleep is the best thing we can do to de-stress. People so often don’t get enough and find it hard to unwind at the end of the day.
To settle into sleep turn off laptops and phones and keep them out of your bedroom. Don’t consume anything overly stimulating such as caffeine and sugar for four hours before bed.
Try to live by the 80/20 rule. If you feed your body pure, good food 80 per cent of the time, it is much better equipped to cope when you fall off the wagon and reach for the bad stuff
Each morning use a body brush in long sweeping strokes over your arms and legs before getting in the shower.
Afterwards drink a glass of water and fresh lemon. If you’re desperate for coffee try sipping a ginger tea as its bitter flavour will kill the craving.
Eggs in the morning are great. If you know you’ll be in a rush try making frittata muffins the night before. Stir carrots, courgettes and herbs into the egg mix for an added vitamin hit.
Alternatively pop chia seeds, watercress, apple juice, avocado, coconut oil and tumeric into a blender for an energy-boosting smoothie.
Good food takes time to make so take your time to eat it. Chewing is crucial. In order to access the nutrition from your food you must break it down properly by chewing.
It’s a simple thing that will make a massive difference and you’ll find yourself eating a smaller portion because chewing lots sends signals to your brain telling it you’re full.
Kiss goodbye to collagen pills and Botox injections.
For a glowing complexion you need nothing more than a mug of bone broth. This nutrient-rich stock (recipe, right) is full of amino acids, vitamins and minerals. It’s healing for your gut, aids digestion and contains collagen to improve the condition of your skin.
Drink it at any time of the day for a whole body and wellbeing boost.
Fat is not the enemy. Butter, for example, is nourishing and tasty. Natural fats, as well as being a good source of energy, help your body better absorb the vitamins A, D, E and K found in vegetables.
Don’t be scared of cooking with good fats such as clarified butter (ghee) and coconut oil too.
We can’t be angelic all the time. Try to live by the 80/20 rule. If you feed your body pure, good food 80 per cent of the time, it is much better equipped to cope when you fall off the wagon and reach for the bad stuff.
After dinner if you fancy something sweet try sesame seed, raw honey and goji berry balls or a bit of dark chocolate avocado mousse.
9 MAKE LEFTOVERS MORE FUN
People think eating well is faddy with lots of rules. However the more flexible you are the more you’ll enjoy it. Being healthy doesn’t need to be time consuming or energy intensive.
A great way to save time is to always make too much food and enjoy the leftovers later. If you don’t fancy eating the same thing try chopping up some herbs and adding them in or make a spice mix and stir it in as you reheat so the dish tastes completely different.
Sipping water or wine during dinner is fine but to get the most from your food don’t drink too much liquid as you eat.
It dilutes the digestive enzymes and means that you don’t break down your food properly.
Dehydration is often mistaken for hunger so to stop yourself overindulging make sure to drink lots of water regularly between meals. Try to have a glass half an hour before sitting down for dinner.
Green Smoothie Soup
A recipe from our regular contributors Melissa and Jasmine Hemsley, of Hemsley + Hemsley. Read more about themhere.
New Years are for new habits. This January, focus on changing your relationship with food instead of dieting. Eat consciously, be mindful and take the time to enjoy food. Eating well and nourishing your body doesn't need to be arduous. Try replacing some of the grain and gluten in your diet with delicious, vegetables combined with quality meat and natural fats and soon you'll feel healthier, happier and more energised.
While the esteemed Green Smoothie acts as our "meal on the go" during the warmer months, cooked vegetables are also nourishing, warming and gentle on the digestion so we look to soups and stews as the weather cools. Homemade, nutrient-rich soups help to reset and fortify the body. They offer a big dose of nourishment in every mouthful and are an inexpensive food, particularly if you use local, seasonal vegetables which are always better value. Our simple Green Smoothie Soup champions all of the energising ingredients of the familiar green smoothie and more. It's loaded with immune boosting ingredients such as ginger, garlic, cayenne, lemon and our favourite superfoods: turmeric, watercress, spinach, avocado, coconut oil and bone broth. Dark green leafy vegetables are rich in vitamins A, C, K and folate, minerals such as iron and calcium and they are also a great source of fibre. We could talk about our love of greens for hours!
A Hemsley + Hemsley staple, Bone Broth, is key to packing this soup with nutrients and flavour. Not only that but this tasty superfood, used as a cure throughout human history, promotes optimal gut health and aids the absorption of vitamins including D which is particularly important in winter. Economical and easy, you can make it in bulk and keep a jug in the fridge and extra in the freezer. We have loved hearing from readers of our Vogue posts and our book The Art of Eating Well about the repertoire of recipes in which they have championed Bone Broth. From using it in their sauces, soups and stews, for cooking quinoa and steaming vegetables, even adding it to scrambled eggs! If you haven't already, research your nearest farmer's market, good butcher or look for an online delivery service to source your bones. Provenance is key. The healthier the rearing of the animal, the healthier the broth and in turn the more nutrients delivered to your dish. Don't forget to save the bones from your Sunday roasts and celebrate the frugality of Bone Broth.
This soup takes just 10 minutes to cook and a few minutes to blend so lunch or supper is on the table in less than 15 minutes. If you don't already have a good stainless steel thermos, be sure to buy one for quick, portable lunches that stay hot for hours. Take it into work to avoid using the microwave. Our other lunchtime favourites include Miso Carrot, Quick Red Soup and Moroccan Squash. Check out our Vogue Soup Compilation for warming dishes that make eating well not only effortless but completely delicious. Here's to a happier and healthier 2015!
