“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” My Greek ancestors had the right idea! I truly live by this quote and ensure that my body is fueled with lots of vegetables, legumes, grains, and fruit every single day. Preparing meals for the next day is essential for me because then I’m less likely to eat out and reach for junk food. Take that extra 30 minutes when you get home from school or work to make some yummy planty eats. Your body and your mind will thank you lots :). I’ve been meaning to upload this post for quite some time, so please let me know if you enjoy it and I can post more!
Breakfast was a smoothie and it was awesome! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that I switch between oatmeal, smoothies, and avo toast for breakfast. I’ve started to put frozen riced sweet potato in my smoothies and I’m tellin’ ya, it’s a game changer (the new riced cauliflower?). I have an obsession with avocados, so of course I threw 1/2 of one in there. Other ingredients included 1/2 of a banana, toasted coconut milk, a little bit of raw kale, frozen bluebs, nutritional booster, and golden milk (not pictured).
I had to bring some carrots and hummus with me to school. I’m actually a rabbit. The only thing that would have upgraded this snack would have been some crackers.
I didn’t forget my water bottle this time (happens often). Hydration is so important and it really helps beat the bloat.
Ah yes, lunchtime finally came and I devoured some veggie hash with potatoes, bell peppers, carrots, and zucchini. Hummus and walnuts completed the meal. A little banana on the side was the perfect treat!
I was hungry again at this point. No, I was hangry. Combine accounting (not my fave) with hunger and it’s not a pretty sight. Not to fear, kale chips are near. A handful of kale chips was the perfect snack to tide me over until dinner. These are SO good dipped in hummus or guacamole.
I worked out after class and I knew it wouldn’t be long until I craved a bowl of carbs. This was my favorite meal of the day and for the right reasons. First and foremost, it was pasta mixed with dairy-free Kite Hill cream cheese, hummus, and beans. Second, it was nourishing for my body since the pasta was made from brown rice and also gluten-free! The beans added some necessary protein.
Lastly, I finished my long day of eeeeeats with some dark chocolate dipped in a tiny bit of dairy-free plain cream cheese. I always opt for a high % of cacao when I buy dark chocolate.
