What I Ate Yesterday

This is a totally random day of eating for me – it is in no way an example of perfection, nor is it intended for that purpose.  I like to see what other healthy vegetarians/vegans eat in a day for inspiration and personal interest.  Sometimes what I eat is super healthy, and sometimes not so much.  I try to find a balance. Beside my coffee with breakfast, I only drank water all day.breakfast Breakfast – approx. 8:00 a.m.

  • Cold coffee with stevia and a splash of almond milk
  • 2 slices of toasted Ezekiel bread with half an avocado, raw hemp seeds, and raw pumpkin seeds
  • Strawberries and blueberries

 

 

lunch Lunch – approx. 11:30 a.m.

  • Leftover roasted veggies (eggplant, zucchini, onion, yellow bell pepper, cherry tomatoes) on a bed of greens

 

snack1 Snack 1 – approx. 1:30 p.m.

  • Sliced banana drizzled with peanut butter sauce (just PB thinned down with water so that I can drizzle it), cocoa roasted peanuts, a sprinkle of hemp seeds and pumpkin seeds

 

snack2 Snack 2 – approx. 3:30 p.m.

  • Two Moms In the Raw Gojiberry Granola Seed Bar

 

Dinner – approx. 5:30 p.m.

  • We were out of town for dinner and went to The Olive Garden.  This is a perfect example of bending when necessary and trying to make the best food choices.  I had a huge bowl of salad, no croutons, no cheese.  I also had 3 – yes, 3 – breadsticks.  For my entrée, I had vegetable penne with vegetable primavera without cheese.  The sauce was a simple marinara with tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, peppers, and onions.

 

Snack 3 – approx. 8:00 p.m.

  • Huge handful of banana chips from the all-natural store I shop at…they are so addictive

 

I tried to do a very rough estimate of my calorie total for the day and I think it was in the ballpark of 1900 calories.  As far as my carb-fat-protein ratio, I don’t know, I try to have a balance, honestly.

What are some of your favorite easy, healthy meals?
