A Day in the Life

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.

Morning (post-workout)

 


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


Mid-morning snack


Vega  Chocolate Shake with a banana


Lunch

 


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.


Dinner

 

 


 

Parsnip fries, Brussels and a quinoa veggie burger .

OR


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?

    A piece of toast with peanut butter :). Wow! This is so much info and my diet is definitely an area I need to work on! It can be overwhelming at times because there is so much info out there and one day something is so good for you and the next day it is not!

    I used to listen to Ben’s podcast all the time, but that’s kind of fizzled out lately–I guess because I’m not actually an endurance athlete? I love his perspective though. Always learn a ton from him.

    Great looking day of eats! And that Easter photo – hilarious/adorable. 🙂 Hope you’re all doing well!!
