Realistically, I don’t eat the same thing everyday, because that’s pretty plain and honestly hard to accomplish. How could I control what I eat every single day when every single day I could be doing different things in different places?
But recently I’ve had a few days off work and have had the opportunity to eat all my meals at home, the reason I am sharing this with the internet (really why do people care what I eat) Is because I want to show what a typical day of food looks like for a real person who is just trying to eat normally. I’m not a vegan (although I often follow a vegan meal plan) I’m not a vegetarian, I’m not a meat-a-terrain, I have literally no dietary structure except that I don’t eat lactose. I’m lactose intolerant. This is just what I feel like eating on a given day, for me.
Baked apple pie and green smoothie
Today I had the day off so I rolled out of bed officially around 7:30 (this is extremely late for me)
I always late the day with 600 ml of cold ice water with lemon. Always.
Next I have a cup of coffee with almond milk (this time I had almond date milk from the farmers market, just a teaspoon of it goes along way)
Recently I have been obsessed with terra breads multigrain toast, it’s just the perfect amount of crunch in the morning with something sweet, like almond butter or banana, or savory like half an avocado, but this morning I opted for a slice of this toast with ½ tbsp. almond butter and half a baked apple (baked in 1.4 tsp coconut oil and cinnamon, I had this leftover from the night before).
Honestly nothing very exciting. However I was feeling pretty awful, so I decided to add in a green smoothie, I used a recipe from a book I got recently Vegan Everyday: 500 declious recipes by mark mcnish, but slightly adapted it to my liking
I used approximately 2 cups of kale, ¼ mango, .5 scoop protein powder (vega vanilla), a frozen banana, and 1 cup almond milk and blended away.
Then I actually still didn’t feel truly fixed up, I was feeling awful and really just wanted to feel like I was taking a step towards feeling better, so I used the same recipe book to make a juice.
It had 3 inches of ginger, ½ a lemon with the skin on processed through a juicer, 1 cup boiling water and 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
Veggie patty and kale salad
I had a mix of that Kirkland salad you can get from Costco (the large bag with the mixed sprouts and things)
And a veggie burger patty from the brand Gardien. I really like doing this, having a patty of some sort that’s clean (not a lot of ingredients) with a salad for lunch. It’s both filling and satisfying. I also threw in some roasted broccoli because it’s delicious and every chance I get I baked it with a bit of coconut oil and cracked black pepper.
Spaghetti Squash and roasted brocolli
My dinner was kind of late and not really desired tonight, which is honestly really weird for me because I live to eat. I know hoe ridiculous that statement sounds but it’s the god honest truth I do live to eat ha-ha.
I had about three cups of steamed broccoli, 1.5 cups of baked spaghetti squash and ¼ cup of simply organics tomato basil tomato sauce. It wasn’t exciting and it wasn’t all that good but it filled me up. Especially post gym. I needed to eat
Okay so my favorite part of my day for eating is.
Magic Date Ball
My mother created this little treat ball, there’s dates, coconut, sunflower seeds, organic honey, gogi berries, and you name it. I call them kitchen sick protein balls and I am in love. I eat about two of these a day (they are extremely sugary so no more than that) But I just cant stop. They are amazing. Mom rocks.
Then I usually mid afternoon have a permission, and apple with natural peanut butter, celery, and a handful of almonds, honestly I do snack a lot and I don’t deprive myself at all. If I want it I have it.
The Nam’s miso gravy
I picked this bad boy up at whole foods because a friend told me they sell them there and I HAD to get my hands on this. It’s just everything. It has few ingredients and all the right ones, and it just fills you with a warm miso flavor that makes any vegetable baked or stirs fried taste like the best thing. I highly suggest it.
Well that’s all for now.
Until next time,
