What I Ate Wednesday - Vegan + Gluten Free

I'm here today to share a quick peek into what I eat in a typical day. As usual, everything is vegan, gluten free, and super delicious! This particular day happened to be a work day and it's quite different than a day of eating at home would be. But it's all simple, easy foods that you can easily prepare and take with you on the go. Oh, and if you want to check this out in video form, head over to Youtube and join me there! I'm trying to get into filming more videos and have been loving it too.


Breakfast

For breakfast I had peanut butter banana ice cream topped with molasses, coconut sugar, coconut, buckwheat groats, and cinnamon. Ahhhmazing!

Snack

I'm obsessed with this Larabar. I eat it almost everyday and I don't think I'll ever get tired of it. SO GOOD.

Lunch

So glad that I documented this rare occasion of me actually eating a salad. I topped it off with some red pepper dressing.

Snacks

During the afternoon at work I was still pretty hungry after the salad so I grabbed the emergency stash of dried mango that I keep in my bag.

Once I got home I had a green smoothie snack that was so refreshing and just what I needed to fuel me until dinner!

Dinner

Potatoes, potatoes, potatoes. YUM. With a side of lemon zest hummus... double YUM.


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!

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.
