In a video shared on Instagram before lockdown, she revealed what she would be eating for breakfast and snacks, including hard-boiled eggs, ham, tomatoes, avocado, carrots and hummus, apple and cheese slices, and a green juice.

Ruth captioned another snap: "Sunday night food prep for Monday’s breakfast & lunch," she said.

Ruth often shares her meal-prep on social media 

"Following @justinepattison idea of putting my Greek salad in a separate container with dressing at the bottom, cucumber, toms, feta & olives in the middle and salad leaves on the top....the dressing doesn’t make everything soggy then. Tip out to serve...I’m having chargrilled chicken & a dollop of houmous with mine."

Ruth is also savvy and doesn't let her food go to waste, previously revealing that she can whip up a tasty meal using leftovers. She wrote: "Using what I could find in the fridge omelette! Peppers, onions, courgette, garlic. Finished off under the grill with Parmesan cheese."
