A Day on My Plate with Pro Surfer Sophie McCulloch

Sophie McCulloch - Pro Surfer & Paleo Hero Ambassador

We love getting to know our Ambassasdors as best as we can and that all starts with their daily routine. 

Here's a peek into Paleo Hero Ambassador & Pro Surfer Sophie McCulloch's and her day to day life.


o Tell us about you and what you do?  

I am an 21-year-old surfer competing on the World Surf League Qualifying and Challenger Series with aspirations to qualify for the World Circuit Tour and the 2024 Olympic Games. My dreams branch further to be #1 in both these competitive routes. I am also a part time university student at the University of the Sunshine Coast studying a dual degree, Bachelor in Marketing and Biomedical Science.

o Do you have a morning ritual or habit? What does that look like? 

Spring out of bed, have a cup of tea on the way to the beach, go surfing, then meet my parents and/or friends for coffee (soy cappuccino).

 o What you eat on an average day for breakfast, lunch, dinner and any snacks?

Muesli/Granola and yoghurt or homemade smoothie bowl.

I usually make a salad based on what leftovers are in the fridge (usually includes spinach, pumpkin, capsicum and tomatoes.

My family and I mix it up, however the weekly regulars are meat and veg, a pasta and stir frys’.

My favourite snack is a protein bar or a handful of nuts/dried fruit.
