Hope everyone had a Happy Easter!
Had a few requests for a day in the life of my eats. If you’ve been following, we have decided to do plant-based (NOT vegetarian) and limiting dairy as well as gluten. I never like to say we are avoiding things, just limiting.
Here is a typical day of eats.
1/2 cup gluten-free oats, almond-milk plain yogurt, strawberries and hemp seeds
Along with a chia tea bag and some coconut milk in hot water
Vega Chocolate Shake with a banana
Peas, avocado, tomato, Dr. Praeger’s Kale Burger and 2 eggs. Nutritional yeast sounds yummy doesn’t it?! But it is especially important for plant-based eaters to supply them with the vitamin B they need. It’s also an awesome cheese substitute. You just have to get used to the name.
Parsnip fries, Brussels and a quinoa veggie burger .
Plantain bison lasagna with sautéed spinach. We are plant-based but not totally against a little meat every now and then. Plantains aren’t just yummy, but a resistant starch. This means it helps feed your good gut bacteria as well as leave you with fuller not just after the meal, but all day!
And don’t forget this after every meal
And a 1/4 cup of this with 2 TBS of almond butter after dinner
I’ve started seriously following Ben Greenfield and if you are an endurance athlete and NOT following him, get with the program. He is a huge advocate of more fat, less carbs and intermittent fasting. More on this later, but I am making a plan of adding more fat
Yes, more fat to my diet… NATURAL fat. To make your body a fat burning machine, you need to fuel your body with the right fats. Will be doing a follow-up post in a few weeks to share.
What’s one thing you eat every day?
