Chantal Coady, founder of the British chocolate company Rococo, gets a thumbs-up for her sensible eating habits.
6.55am A cup of tea before my pilates class.
8am Cooked apples with granola, yogurt and dried barley-grass powder – it’s supposed to contain lots of micronutrients and vitamins.
9.30am Cycle to the office to meet Laurent, our chocolatier, and taste our bespoke chocolates. If I’m organised I bring oatcakes and nut butter from home; I don’t like tasting on an empty stomach. Try four or five chocolates at a time, and drink white tea to cleanse my palate.
11am Meeting about a new collection of bars from our cocoa farm in Grenada.
12.30pm Salad with goat’s cheese and grilled vegetables from home.
3pm Retreat with a mulberry-leaf tea to work on a new wrapper design. Afterwards I taste some cakes at the Motcomb Street branch, with a cappuccino.
7pm Barbecue some fish to have with spinach, purple sprouting broccoli and rice, and a glass of white. I tend to eat chocolates and desserts only when tasting – they’re not part of my normal routine.
