What I Ate Wednesday 1/27/16

In an effort to show you all more of what I eat as a primarily plant-based, active adult, I'm starting a new series here on the blog - "What I Ate Wednesday."  Each Wednesday I'll snap a picture of everything I eat and post the pictures plus descriptions here on the blog.  I'll share helpful information on what I'm eating and why.

PLEASE, please, please do not think that your food choices should directly mirror mine - we are all different and what works for my body may not work for your body, and vice versa.  I'm still figuring out what works best for me and guess what?  It's changing all the time.  I'm simply sharing my choices with the hopes to give you more ideas when it comes to plant based foods and meals.

Here's what I ate this Wednesday:

Upon waking: Water water water!! Then almond milk latte later.

Breakfast: Smoothie with blueberries, Parsley Health protein powder, cinnamon, ginger, and tocos. Superfood spotlight: Tocos is a new superfood for me! This light, shimmery powder is derived from brown rice and is recognized as being great for your skin (as it's a rich source of fat-soluble vitamin E&D). It's sweet, creamy flavor is perfect for adding to smoothies, oatmeal, or for stirring straight into coffee.

AM Snack: Simple Green juice from juice press. This juice had cucumber, celery, lemon, kale, sea salt PLUS added probiotics {what are probiotics? learn more here}. Quick tip: Not all green juices are created equal! Aim for one with mostly veggies, organic if possible!

Lunch: Sauteed kale, tomatoes, kraut + an egg. Plus a ginnybakes Happy Chocolate Bliss bar (this was good... but it did contain agave, which I usually shy away from).

Dinner: Baked sweet potato with cinnamon, sea salt, and generous drizzle of homemade almond butter. Plus a sprinkling of roasted pumpkin seeds (I got these at Starbucks of all places and they were SUPER good).


And there you have it - another day in my food life! A little nontraditional, but it's what works for me right now. Want some help in finding what works best for your body? Schedule a complementary strategy session with me!
