The top nutritionist behind a multi-million-dollar vitamins empire has offered a look at her daily diet, and revealed why blueberries are the top superfood she makes sure she incorporates into each and every day.
Jessica Sepel, from Sydney, runs JS Health – a multi-million dollar supplement and recipe brand known for its $45 ‘miracle’ vitamins that encourage hair growth and promote good skin.
For breakfast, Jessica said she typically has a homemade smoothie filled with blueberries, homemade granola, cinnamon protein powder and probiotics from her own brand.

She blends all of the ingredients together first thing and then serves the smoothie with desiccated coconut, sliced fruit or nuts and seeds if she wants a little bit of crunch.
‘I love using KitchenAid’s new K400 blender to make my smoothies. It’s the most powerful blender I’ve ever used – it can handle tough ingredients like my go-to nuts and dates which I love mixing into my smoothies for a hit of sweetness and healthy fats,’ Jessica told FEMAIL.
If she needs a snack before lunch, Jessica said she’ll usually enjoy a peanut butter bar from the healthy food company Raw Rev.
Containing just two grams of sugar, the bars also boasts plenty of protein and fibre to keep you full until lunchtime.
Jessica often tries to squeeze a workout in – whether it’s a walk or a Pilates session – before lunch.
Jessica (pictured) said she typically starts every day with a homemade smoothie, and always has a snack in the morning and afternoon
She has a five-minute working lunch that she puts together most days comprising bread or wholegrain crackers and toppings (pictured)
‘My five minute working lunch to copy is always the same,’ Jessica said.
‘Healthy seed crackers or bread topped with avocado, hummus, sprouts, chicken or tuna, tomatoes and rocket leaves.’
Jessica said you can also drizzle some goat’s cheese on there, as well as a chilli mayonnaise.
She will have this alongside a lemon-infused water, herbal tea or vegetable juice.
‘I’ve found an afternoon snack to be an effective way to prevent overeating and sugar cravings later in the evening,’ Jessica (pictured) said
Jessica said she is a ‘firm believer’ in having an afternoon snack, and for her, it’s either blueberries and raw almonds mixed together or Greek yoghurt with some blueberries sprinkled through it.
‘I’ve found an afternoon snack to be an effective way to prevent overeating and sugar cravings later in the evening,’ Jessica said.
When it comes to dinner, the nutritionist typically enjoys something a bit more nourishing and warm, like a Thai green chicken curry from her app and wild rice.
‘I try to eat an early dinner as it helps me to digest my food properly before bed,’ Jessica said previously.
This means eating at around 7pm, so she has plenty of time to relax before heading off to her room.
If she is still hungry after dinner, Jessica will have a cup of peppermint tea and a couple of squares of 70 per cent dark chocolate.
Jessica said she doesn’t like to deprive herself and so will always give herself a little bit of what she loves.
