What I Eat In A Day | September 1, 2016

I’m back with another What I Eat In A Day post, which are my favorite to write and share! I love snooping in on what people enjoy eating, and I also love sharing some of the things I enjoy eating. I love getting inspiration from other bloggers’ What I Eat In A Day posts, so I hope that you can get some inspiration from mine… even if you’re not vegan!

Breakfast consisted of an everything bagel with Earth Balance, a super ripe banana, a glass of orange juice, and a cup of strong black coffee

Lunch was a little random, but I had some slaw made from a recipe I made last week and wanted to use it somehow. I sautéed broccoli, tempeh, onion, and green pepper with a little soy sauce, maple syrup, and ginger brine. Then wrapped the veggies up with some slaw (shredded cabbage and carrots with some vinegar and Just Mayo) in a flour tortilla.

Roasted Beets with Sautéed Garlic Beet Greens

Beets can be extremely intimidating if you’ve never tried them, or cooked with them. I thought I’d do a little “how-two” for anyone that wants to experience the beauty of the beet!

Beets are extremely nutritious, and taste so good if you cook them right! They are LOADED with nutrients and anti-inflammatory properties. Their beautiful deep red color comes from all their phytonutrients. They are also great food if you’re wanting to detox. I love eating both the beet and the beet greens (which are also loaded with lots of vitamins and minerals), so I included how to cook the greens as well for a lovely accompaniment to the beet root. Beets tend to be very bitter, so I’ve found that roasting them is the best way to cook them because it draws out a lot of their sweet flavor and makes them soft on the inside and crisp on the outside. They’re so delicious you just won’t be able to beet them!

What I Eat In A Day | August 22, 2015

For breakfast, guess what I had…? You probably guessed right, two slices of Ezekiel bread with peanut butter and jelly with a side of fruit (two peaches, and a banana). For my coffee, I added in some almond milk and a few drops of liquid stevia. I am usually a black coffee drinker, but lately I’ve been enjoying adding a little almond milk into my coffee.

An hour or two after breakfast, I went to a few thrift stores around town. I absolutely love to go thrifting on a Saturday afternoon, because you never know what you’ll find! Also, who can beat clothes for less than a dollar?!
