The secret is cooking the chicken and vegetables in an inch of water until it almost evaporates, then dry frying until cooked.


After, add a bit of oil, salt and pepper to taste. If you fancy, add some roasted lemon and basil to bring out the flavours.


Makes enough for 2:



  • 2 chicken breasts, skin on

  • 2 carrots

  • 1/2 head of broccoli

  • 2 figs

  • extra virgin cold press olive oil

  • 2 cups of brown rice

  • 6 cups of water

  • salt & pepper to taste


A simple diet plan can make all the difference when working out. Hope says, “I always make sure I haven’t eaten for 2 hours before swimming and yoga practice. I plan my diet to comprise mostly of solid foods, supplemented with liquids.”


Training gives you an excuse to indulge a little. “I'm a real foodie, so I think of exercise as earning credits for more calorie intake, so that way I can continue to enjoy food,” says Hope. “For example, I really like hotpot, but it can be quite calorific, so often I replace oily broths with kelp or vegetable broths.”


Here’s a selection of Hope’s own healthy options to provide the fuel you’ll need.
