What I Eat In A Day | October 24, 2017

I started off the morning with my favorite breakfast that I’ve been making almost every morning lately. It’s the perfect savory breakfast that is super healthy, hearty, simple, and delicious! 

I started by adding about a cup of frozen hash browns to a pan with a tiny bit of olive oil and cooked them until they were crispy. In a separate pan I sautéed crumbled tofu (I add a tiny bit of turmeric to give it some color/flavor), peppers, onion, and kale. At the very end I threw in some garlic and chopped basil for some added flavor and nutrition.

And I don’t stop there… I’ve been packing in even more nutrients by adding nutritional yeast (for B vitamins, iron, & zinc) and kelp flakes (for iodine). I top it all with extra black pepper and some hot sauce for a kick. A dish like this is the perfect meal to start your day off because it’s SO much food, and will keep you full for hours. 

Of course I paired it with a mug of French pressed coffee to which I added in some unsweetened soy milk.

What I Eat In A Day | January 7, 2016

There is no better way to start back to blogging than with a What I Eat In A Day post!

For breakfast, I tried out something new and LOVED it! I toasted an Ezekiel English muffin with vegan Chao cheese, sautéed tempeh, spinach, avocado, and some sweet sriacha on top. The flavors were incredible, and it was a great way to start the morning with something savory rather than something sweet. I paired it with a glass of orange juice and black coffee.

A few hours later I fixed a plate of bowtie pasta with marinara sauce and broccoli. I started reading Dr. Greger’s new book titled How Not To Die and I’m loving it so far! Such amazing research and information all explained so it’s easy to understand.

After lunch I snacked on a delicious homemade vegan cookie. You can find the recipe here , I added walnuts and coconut in mine and used whole wheat and all purpose flour rather than gluten free flour. They turned out great!

My Favorite Things: September

September is one of my favorite months, because it includes the start of fall, as well as my birthday! I guess I was enjoying it so much, it seemed to fly by! But here are some of the things I loved during the best month of the year!

Family time

I was able to go home twice this month, once for Labor Day and then again for a conference. It’s always so great seeing my family, and our new addition Toby!

What I Eat In A Day | July 31, 2015

Sorry if you’re getting tired of my typical breakfast, but since high school once I find a good breakfast, I stick with it for at least five months. I tend to be a habitual person, and it definitely shows in the foods I eat. Why fix what’s not broken?

So for breakfast I had two slices of Ezekiel bread, one with blackberry jelly and the other with peanut butter. Alongside it I had two juicy peaches, one huge banana, and of course some black coffee.

After a few hours of e-mails, blog stuff, and watching TV, I really wanted to go on a hike/walk so I ate some more fruit with a side of a few dates to fuel up.

What I Eat In A Day | July 28, 2015

Today’s What I Eat In A Day will be a little different, because I entered all my food into cronometer which is an awesome website that tracks you calories, macronutrient ration, as well as nutrients. I definitely don’t do this everyday, but I like to do it at least once a month to make sure I’m eating all my vitamins, and minerals as well as just see how all my food adds up. So now, onto the food!

Breakfast was eaten at about 11:00, and was my typical breakfast. Two slices of Ezekiel bread, one with peanut butter and molasses and the other with blackberry jelly. Along side the toast, I had some strawberries, two bananas, and of course a nice cup of black coffee.
