What I Eat in a Day (A Vegetarian’s Confession)
I see so many bloggers and Instagrammers share what they eat in a day and I always enjoyed that glimpse into their lives. So, I wanted to share what I eat with you guys!
I like to compare how I eat to other peoples daily eating routines. I don’t have the best eating habits. My meals aren’t structured so that I am eating breakfast, lunch and dinner at the same time each day. I also eat a lot of junk and don’t consume enough water. So seeing others’ “what I eat in a day” posts is inspiring to me and encourages me to make better food choices throughout the day.
For example, I’ve really been trying to kick the soda habit. It’s tough! Soda has no nutritional value, is horrible for your teeth, throat and stomach, and contains high fructose corn syrup. I buy a box of 12 cans, drink 1-2 a day, and by the end of the box I’m telling myself that this is the last. I usually last a day or two and then I’m back at the store picking up more.
Sharing what I eat in a day means I have to be completely transparent about my eating habits and face the music. I’m actually shy about sharing this, which is weird.
What I Eat in a Day
To start the day I had strawberry yogurt with fresh strawberries, granola and sweetened cacao nibs. I also had a cup of coffee with coconut coffee enhancer.
I had a really late lunch. I decided to go downtown today to pick up some solid shampoo from Lush, some vegetarian meat alternatives from Market Organics and then some cat litter on my way home. I left around 3:30pm and didn’t get back home until 6:00pm (I use public transportation!)
For lunch I had leftover Barley Stew with Root Vegetables I made from an online recipe by Greener Ideal. I also had a can of Dr. Pepper over some ice.
SeaSnax Original. If you haven’t tried these yet your missing out! They have the satisfaction of chips but are so light. Because they are heavily packaged I recommend roasting your own seaweed with olive oil and sea salt at home, which is what I will be doing in the future.
Pizza Pizza now offers vegan cheese! My pizza is topped with dairy-free cheese, broccoli, mushrooms and green olives. I had a lot leftover to enjoy the next couple days.
As you can see I always start the day off good and then it goes downhill from there. I’m also a carbohydrate junkie! I will say though that I do not get to enjoy the pizza everyday and usually treat myself to takeout when I get a top up in my bank account!
Next time I publish a “What I Eat in a Day” post there will be salad, I swear! (Maybe)
