It's 15 weeks since actress Gemma Atkinson welcomed her adorable baby girl Mia with partner, Strictly dancer, Gorka Marquez. Gemma is a huge fan of keeping fit and leading a healthy lifestyle, so it's no surprise that she's already back to training after the birth. The couple recently launched their own YouTube channel called Gem & Gorks, which gives fans a fly-on-the-wall insight into their daily lives with Mia. The latest episode shows Gemma kicking off the day with a super-healthy breakfast as she prepares for a day at the gym – and the star has given us major food inspo.

Gemma wrote: "Training has been HUGE part of my life for the last 10 years. It took a well deserved back seat when I became a new mum. Today at 15 weeks Post Partum I began my Training journey once again."

In the clip, we see Gemma make herself a delicious-looking cooked breakfast. She reveals: "I always start the day with proteins, fats and fibre because the aim is to stabilise my blood sugar level first thing. If I have sugary cereals or anything like that it's going to spike my blood sugar."

"So my go-to breakfast is normally three eggs, either scrambled or in an omelette, my avocado and then some forms of greens: asparagus, kale or spinach. I've got some chicken sausages in the oven as well, just because I'm feeling a bit greedy today and I have coffee with almond milk."

And that's not all. Gemma adds: "Sometimes after I've had my eggs if I'm still a bit hungry - which is quite rare as it does fill you up - I have 50grams of oats, again with almond milk because I love it!"

 

Gemma admits that with a baby to take care of, there's not always time to make a cooked breakfast. "So on those days, if I'm having oats, it's quicker," she says. "I just add a scoop of whey protein in it and some almonds, walnuts. That's quicker to make. It's easier sometimes with a baby."
