Rachael Finch shares her day on a plate
The House of Wellness co-host Rachael Finch advocates good health and eating well – and it certainly shows.
Model and health coach Rachael Finch was glowing at the Melbourne photo shoot for The House of Wellness winter magazine cover.
As well as co-hosting The House of Wellness TV series on Channel Seven, mum-of-two Rachael, 30, keeps herself busy running two businesses with husband Michael Miziner.
“I’m always asking myself, ‘If money wasn’t an issue, then what would I be doing with my time?’” Rachael says.
“And for me, it’s exactly what we’re doing. It’s the products that we’re working on and creating, and the Body by Finch program that is giving health and wellness inspiration to women.”
To look after herself, Rachael pays close attention to maintaining her fitness and eating healthily.

Rachael shares what she would typically eat in a day:
Early morning: Smoothie
“I start the day with a smoothie. I put in spinach leaves, bananas, a plant-based milk, protein powder, collagen and a green superfood powder, some nuts and avocado. That’s my ultimate smoothie and that’s usually breakfast.”
Middle of the day: Salad
“Lunch would be a big salad with a protein like chicken or tuna, with sweet potato and pumpkin and all the greens and vegies,” says Rachael.
“I just throw in whatever I feel like and then add some pine nuts and avocado.”
Evening: Protein and veg
“Dinner will be a grilled or oven-baked piece of fish, or some stir-fry vegies with some sweet potato.”
“I try not to snack too much. I’m a big believer in letting the body digest the food that it needs to and then snacking only when you’re really hungry, or you’ve gone a long time without a main meal,” says Rachael.
“If I do snack, I just have one of the snacks off the Body by Finch program.
“We’ve got a choc peanut truffle bliss ball, which is my favourite, or I’ll have some rice cakes with avocado or nut spread, or a piece of fruit.”

“When we go out, I love having sushi – Japanese would be a favourite,” she says.
“Or I just pick a protein source from the menu and then just order some sides – whether it be some grilled mushrooms, or another type of vegetable.”
