Hey love bugs!
I figured it’s about time I write another what I eat in a day blog since it’s been a while. I’ve started a new program with Vegan Goddess Fitness that’s entirely plant based whole foods. The recipes are incredible and I’m only about a week in and I feel great!
I really wanted to make a change in my life. I was feeling a bit down lately from a broken heart and I just needed something to 1) take my mind off it and 2) help me cope in other ways than drowning my sorrows. I know that’s not really the image I portray very much online, but I’m being honest here. I needed something FRESH and I honestly just want to live a clean and healthy life!
I’ve been on my vegan and fitness journey for almost 10 years now and I always wonder what I would look and feel like if my nutrition habits aligned with my fitness habits. If I cut my excuses and cut out processed vegan junk foods, alcohol, and my favorite..salsa and chips. Now I’m not saying I won’t ever enjoy a treat once in a while, but I do want to make it more of a once a month thing than an all weekend every weekend kind of thing. So here’s to living healthy not only to get over someone, but for ME! Just to see if I can do it and finally feel *aligned* with my healthy habits.
So without further adieu, here’s what a full day of eating looked like on my new program. I made a few tweaks to the recipes to work with what I picked up from the Grocery Outlet, so not everything is exactly the way it was written in my meal plan, but I was sure to stay within my given macros and focus on whole foods plant based meals to keep me feeling good and honest. Also, don’t feel obligated to use these exact measurements, if you need more or less is really up to you!
Breakfast: Overnight Oats
1 Mashed Banana
¼ Cup Rolled Oats
2 TBSP Chia Seeds
1 Cup Water or Plant Milk
Your Choice of Toppings, I used Strawberries and Walnuts
Mix banana, oats, chia seeds, and liquid then place in the fridge overnight. Top with yummy toppings in the morning and enjoy!
Lunch: Fajita Bowl
1 Golden Potato Chopped
1 Cup Black Beans
2 Mini Peppers
.5oz Red Onion
Lay on top a bed of lettuce
Top with Avocado & Salsa
Basically just heat everything up in a pan, start with the potatoes and let them get soft before you add everything else!
Dinner: Buffalo Chickpeas & Cauliflower
1 Cup Chickpeas
2 Cups Cauliflower Florets
Coat in 1TBSP Olive Oil & 3 TBSP Tabasco or Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
Preheat the oven to 357°F, coat chickpeas and cauliflower, place on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes. Can also pair with quinoa or bean pasta!
