Lately, I’ve been starting off most mornings with this combination: greens powder & supplements. The supplements that I take every day vary depending on how I’m feeling, or what I think I need more of. Most mornings I stick with these three supplements: astragalus (immune support), Vitamin D (winter months can often result in depleted vitamin D stores), and a vegan probiotic (for a happy tummy).
I’ll be honest, I’ve yet to find a greens powder that doesn’t taste gnarly. This one by Barlean’s is packed with lots of goodness but the taste is definitely strong. I’ve found mixing a scoop of greens powder with some orange juice helps the “medicine” go down much better. I add about 1/3 cup of orange juice into a small jar, a scoop of greens powder and then shake until combined. It takes about three gulps and I’ve already gotten in a bunch of greens, antioxidants, fiber, and nutrients for the day.
I prefer doing this rather than making a smoothie, because sometimes making a smoothie is too time consuming, and so mixing it with some juice is alot easier for me. Continue reading “What I Eat In A Day | February 27, 2018”
Today, I bring to you an incredibly simple recipe that is perfect to snack on all throughout the fall months. This granola is packed full of nutrients and is oil-free, gluten free, nut free, refined sugar free, vegan and still tastes incredible… it doesn’t get much better than that!
This is the perfect recipe to whip up when you’re in a hurry and want a quick snack or need to make a gift for someone special. While the granola is toasting it fills your house with the most heavenly fall scent and creates such a cozy environment.
I decided to use maple syrup as the sweetener instead of sugar, and included flax seeds for a nutty flavor as well as omega-3 fatty acids. The pumpkin seeds are the best part of this recipe, in my opinion, because they provide the perfect crunch while also providing lots of iron, magnesium, protein, and zinc.

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.

I started off the morning with one of my favorite breakfasts. An Ezekiel english muffin with a slice of chao cheese melted on top, sautéed onion and tempeh, topped with avocado slices and some sirracha. This is a great savory breakfast that is quick and easy to make! I had a banana along side it, and a hot cup of black coffee.
My family and I traveled a few hours to watch my little sister play in a soccer tournament, so you’ll see quick a few snacks in this What I Eat In A Day post. I snacked on a Clif Bar on the drive there, which is probably one of my favorite snacks.
While watching her game, I snacked on some clementines, and dates rolled in coconut!

It’s been too long since I’ve posted a What I Eat In A Day, have you missed them? Today was filled with delicious food, so hopefully it’ll make up for not posting one in a while.
The morning started off with my typical breakfast of 2 slices of Ezekiel bread with peanut butter and molasses and jelly. I paired it with a banana and mug of coffee. Does anyone recognize my mug from a certain TV show??
After breakfast, I headed over the The Children’s Playhouse to give a Kids Can Cook lesson. This semester, I’ve been giving monthly cooking classes for a local children’s museum. Last month, we made green smoothies and this month we made chocolate chip oatmeal cookies (that were also vegan!). The kids are pretty young, so it’s a little difficult to make lessons that are extremely simple and hands on. Cookies were perfect because they got to touch the flour, oats, and sugar. Also mixing batter is always fun! They turned out great, and the kids all seemed to love them!
