Dr Joanna McMillan says:

Top marks for … Pretty much everything! I doubt you need the protein powder since your meals and snacks all provide protein from a mix of both plant and animal foods.

If you keep eating like this you’ll … Give your body the nutrition it needs to help stay as healthy as possible as you age. You have an antioxidant- and nutrient-rich diet,which helps protect DNA and cells,plus plenty of protein and fibre.

Why don’t you try … Spreading your coffees over the morning,making sure you have no caffeine after about 2pm. Ensure you eat some fish at least twice a week.
