I'm often asked "what do you eat every day" so I thought I'd give you a glimpse into a typical day for me. Being primarily a vegan, there are some challenges with getting enough nutrients so that tends to be a primary focus for me. I eat a large variety of foods and I never feel deprived or bored. I also enjoy my foods tremendously and never feel like I'm missing out. My taste buds have changed over the years and I'm eating things today that I would of never imagined. I've found that the cleaner you feed your body, the cleaner you want. You lose the cravings for unhealthy foods! Below is an example of a typical day for me but visit 'what's in my kitchen' for tons of ideas!
I start my morning with a prayer and some mindful stretching, then I have a matcha latte or hot tea most days. I typically eat every 3-4 hours and try to keep my portions small. I try to eat breakfast at least 12 hours after my last meal, a mini fast if you will. I'm usually done eating by 7 pm and go to bed at 10 pm then I eat breakfast ~7-8 am.
BREAKFAST - My typical breakfast consist of overnight oats (Bob's red mill organic quick cooking oats, hemp seeds, chia seeds, flaxseed, pure maple syrup, cinnamon, nuts, fruit, & almond milk) or I'll have steel cut oats with pureed mango and agave.
LUNCH - My typical lunch consist of a bunch of healthy foods all thrown together (black beans, quinoa, bell peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, and homemade greek dressing, or I'll have 1/2 of a premix salad kit w/my protein bar
DINNER - I follow the plate method when planning my dinner and I eat a large variety. Some of my favorites are below include: Tempeh stirfry, homemade pizzas, quinoa salad, veggie or bean burger, and black bean quesadillas with zucchini fries
