What I Ate Wednesday - Vegan + Gluten Free

I can so easily get lost in the Youtube world of What I Ate videos. There's just something about them that pulls me in. That probably sounds strange, but if you're here reading this then I bet that you understand!

This is just a quick post of what I ate today. It's all vegan, gluten free, and pretty freakin' delicious so I thought that it would be fun to share!

BREAKFAST

Banana date ice cream is my jam. It's probably my favorite combo and I haven't had fresh dates in a while so I've been missing it from my life. I didn't realize how much I really did miss it until I bought some on Sunday and have been eating them every day since. Usually in this form! I topped my ice cream with a little bit of a Larabar and cacao nibs. YUM.

SNACK

Typically... another Larabar. I'm hooked.

LUNCH

I made rice, corn, edamame, and roasted chickpeas. I mixed that all together with some bbq sauce and then added romaine and sriracha to really top it all off. This combo was amazing!

SNACK

Half of a mini watermelon in the sunshine before my bike ride. Nothing better!

DINNER

I made waffles for dinner because sweet things are where it's at. I topped my waffles with blueberries, maple syrup, and white chocolate peanut butter. The waffle recipe is right here! Try this combo out, you won't regret it!


That's it! Another day in the books. If you like these posts let me know! I think the next one I do will be a macro/calorie version. I don't count calories or macros regularly but I find it fun to do on occasion just as an experiment.

Let me know what you guys have eaten today! I'd love to know. Also, remember that this is just one day of eating for me. Each day is quite different and that's okay! While looking at these type of posts it's important to realize this and never compare your own dietary choices to mine or anyone else's. Eat what makes you feel good and eat as much as you need to satisfy your body!

What I Ate - Starbucks & Ben + Jerrys

Why is everyone so fascinated with what everyone else eats? Do you ever check out Youtube videos and see how many "What I Ate" videos exist and how much positive feedback people receive for doing them? It's crazy!

But you know what, I'm into them too. I'm into sharing what I ate and I'm interested in seeing what others eat.

The reason that I like to share what I eat is so that people can see that living a vegan lifestyle isn't boring, hard, or expensive. By giving everyone a peek into my daily eats I can help spread that message. 

And I like to see what other people eat basically for inspiration in my own daily life. People can be so darn creative with plant foods. It's awesome.

BREAKFAST

For breakfast I had an acai bowl. I added a mango Bai drink and topped it with kiwi, chia seeds, and coconut. YUM.

LUNCH

Any chance I get to make pancakes, it happens. I just made vanilla almond pancakes topped with blueberries, coconut almond butter, and coconut. Oh and maple syrup. Never forget the maple syrup.

SNACK

Darrin and I went grocery shopping and to dinner. On the way there I had a green smoothie consisting of spinach, bananas, and almond milk. A simple favorite of mine!

DINNER

We got Chinese for dinner and the waitress couldn't understand my questions about the sauces they had so I ended up with steamed veggies and white rice. Very plain, but I was content!

SNACKS

Afterwards I grabbed a vanilla soy latte from Starbucks. I usually go for green tea but something was telling me to go with the latte tonight, so I did!

We ended the night by finishing off the pint of this Ben + Jerrys while watching Netflix documentaries. No other way I'd prefer to spend a Saturday night, to be honest.


That's it! Let me know if you like posts like this. They're easy for me to do (as long as I remember to document all of my food) and fun too!
