What I Ate Wednesday 2/17/16

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."  Every other Wednesday (or so) 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: Big water, and was starving so grabbed a few pieces of this almond coconut protein fudge - make sure you are signed up for my newsletter to get the recipe for this - I'm going to share on Monday! >>Newsletter Sign Up<<

Breakfast: Coffee and almond milk, Blueberry Buzz smoothie! I swear I eat other things for breakfast, just so happens that on Wednesdays I ALWAYS have this. Ha!

Snack: Coconut water! Three back to back classes often means I need more than just water to re-hydrate. Coconut water contains electrolytes which makes it a great post or pre workout beverage of choice. Be sure to grab one that is 100% juice and not from concentrate!

Lunch: sweetgreen salad with quinoa, baby spinach, steelhead salmon, roasted broccoli, cabbage, nori + ginger miso dressing. One of my favorite, favorite on-the-go options, sweetgreen never fails to satisfy me and I love their focus on local, seasonable ingredients.

Snack: Kombucha (not pictured)

Dinner: I knew I had a long night (another Essential Oils and Yoga workshop at Athleta!) so I packed this jar of yum: arugula, roasted sweet potato, avocado, sauerkraut, and tempeh cooked in coconut oil and tamari. I cooked the sweet potatoes and the tempeh over the weekend so this meal came together easily.

Post-dinner: Some of the lovely Lulitonix blends at my workshop (thanks Luli for sponsoring!). My favorite? The CHIA GOLD which is cashew milk with turmeric and ginger - so good!
