I thought I would share with you all what I typically eat in a day. I find these types of posts very fascinating, and wanted to share my own food habits. Maybe this will even inspire some of you to share your own food journals or give some of these recipes a try!
I'm a holistic nutritionist and this is what I (typically) eat in a day:
I like to Intermittent Fast (time restricted eating), so my first meal of the day isn’t normally until 12:30/1 p.m. However, I always have coffee in the morning with a splash of organic cream. Before my coffee I’ll have at least 1 glass of water, preferably room temperature.
Coffee with organic cream
Meal 1 - vegetarian cobb salad: romaine lettuce, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, avocado, eggs, organic dressing
Meal 2 - smoothie or protein powder (like SynerClear or Ultra GI Replenish) + water (depending how hungry I am). The smoothie is often a combo of frozen blueberries, brown rice/ hemp protein powder, water or unsweetened almond milk, MCT oil, and spinach
Meal 3 - sweet potato baked in coconut oil, broccoli, salmon
I try not to snack, but I’m only human! If I feel like something sweet I often make peanut butter blondies with dark chocolate or whip up an Activate (from Harmonic Arts) hot chocolate. If it’s something salty I reach for hummus and rice crackers or organic popcorn made with coconut oil and sea salt.
If you like this series let me know and I’ll put together more What I Eat in A Day from our team at Divine Elements.
