With the start of the new year comes a new series! I get so many requests on my blog and Instagram asking what a typical day of eating looks like for me. And so, to give y’all a more realistic idea of what I eat on the daily, I am starting a new series on what I am actually eating in a day. Especially as a student who eats a ton of meals on the go, I always find these posts to be eye opening and give me a ton of ideas of what
So let’s get started!
Breakfast today was one of my favorite things. Two slices of sesame style bread, 1/4 of a ripe avocado smashed with lemon juice and hummus, topped with a grated hard boiled egg, fresh dill, and pickled onions. To grate my hard boiled egg to a fluffy mound of eggie goodness, I use this microplane. It creates the best texture! Post photo, I added a handful of greens and some sea king saurkraut. I also had a cup of coffee with some coconut creamer on the side.
I was still a little hungry after breakfast, so I had some grass fed cream top yogurt with pomegranate seeds and some coconut cacao granola. Even if I have already had a meal, I never honor my hunger cravings. Some days, I am absolutely ravenous and some days, I am not hungry at all. Just do what makes your body feel good!
I went to get some work done at a local coffee shop downtown, so I grabbed a cup of drip coffee with some oat milk splashed in it. I usually drink my coffee black so this was a nice change!
I usually don’t eat lunch until 4 (which I know… is terrible) but I decided to whip up a smoothie. I usually do the same base for my smoothies, then change up the fruits for variety. This smoothie had cauliflower, zucchini, cottage cheese, pineapple, persimmon, cinnamon, protein powder, and cashew milk. I topped it with granola, pomegranate, sunflower seeds, and the mixed nut butter from Trader Joe’s.
Dinner was one of my favorite recipes: peanut chickpea stew with plenty of kale and some chopped cherry tomatoes. It is one of those recipes I always turn to when I have zero idea what to make. I make it solely with ingredients from the pantry and it truly hits the spot! I also had a toasted gluten free english muffin with some smashed avocado on top.
I go through phases with late night snacking. Lately I’ve been into alllll the hot cocoa. I usually alternate between the Four Sigmatic reishi hot cocoa (you can use “cuttingveg” for 15% off!) or my own homemade version. To make it homemade, mix 1 tablespoon of raw cacao powder, a sprinkle of reishi mushroom powder, 1 tablespoon coconut almond milk creamer, and 6-8 ounces of hot water. I had a huge cup with some peppermint meringues from Trader Joe’s and a rectangle of unsweetened 100% dark chocolate.
And that is all there is to it! Let me know if you enjoyed this and want to see more!
