I’ve been asked a few times if I could do a “what I eat in a day” post and the other day I actually remembered! Hah! I decided to try photographing everything I ate one day, minus my million iced coffee’s I have during the day. I mix up my meals day by day, obviously, but here is an idea of some things I eat as a vegan!
I make a smoothie almost every morning! It’s been a go-to for a while now and I don’t think I’ll change it anytime soon. I also make the same smoothie each time. I’m a massive creature of habit and rarely get bored with meals. If I don’t make a smoothie, I usually make overnight oats… which I may make for tomorrow morning!
So this morning I had my smoothie and then my first iced coffee for the day lol! I can’t even tell you how many I drank today, I love coffee, hence my blog name! I use almond creamer in my coffee by the way, I want to try coconut creamer though!
Smoothie Recipe: unsweetened almond milk, spinach, strawberries, chia seed, hemp seed, peanut butter, banana, ice
My lunches vary, some days I’ll do a huge salad or a finger food plate of fruits and veggies. Today I cut up some russet potatoes into wedges, tossed them in olive oil, garlic/parsley seasoning, sea salt, and black pepper. Then baked them directly on the rack at 425º for 37 min (including the preheat time). This is a slightly modified recipe by High Carb Hannah. I added more wedges to my plate after I ate these haha! So good!!
Fresh fruit (strawberries, dragon fruit, cotton candy grapes), dried apricots, and raw cashews. I love “finger food” snacks and lunches. I’ve been trying to get back in the habit of snacking on fruit and nuts, some days I don’t snack if I make heavy meals though. I like to grab a handful of cashews or almonds during the day since they are good protein.
I made this last night and it was so good that I had to repeat tonight! Quesadilla fried on the stovetop in some peanut oil. Stuffed with veg refried beans, Follow Your Heart cheese, hot sauce, rice, romaine, and green onions. It’s seriously amazing! I start my quesadilla’s in the microwave to melt the cheese a tad so it sticks the tortilla’s together a bit. Then I put a tablespoon of oil in a small pan, cook each side of the quesadilla for a few minutes, until brown a bit and done! You get great restaurant style quesadilla’s with that crispy shell but gooey insides!
After dinner I had a big bowl of pineapple!
