Day on My Plate
One of the most common questions I get? “Can you just tell me what you eat in a day?!”
So I thought I would share what a typical day looks like for me.
Upon rising: 500 ml warm water with juice of half a lemon. This is so good to help wake up your digestive system and detox your liver first thing in the am.
I typically like to a have a couple cups of coffee first thing with some cashew milk or coconut cream and lots of cinnamon.
My breakfast can depend on time and if I am working out or not. I often workout fasted and have a big replenishing smoothie afterwards with plant based protein, coconut yogurt, berries or banana, cinnamon, leafy greens and a healthy fat such as almond butter or hemp hearts.
I typically like to batch cook a couple of staples on the weekend. I love grilled chicken and quinoa and will usually mix this with leafy greens and hummus or tahini.
I absolutely love a crisp, tart apple dipped in almond butter. I am a big salty and sweet person so this totally cures my cravings. Sometimes I will make one of my protein balls or have a plant based protein bar.
I often opt for curries or stir frys with some protein such as fish or chicken, tons of veggies and brown rice for dinner.
My favourite way to wind down the night is with a couple pieces of good quality dark chocolate each night along with my turmeric elixir or a bit of kombucha to help with digestion. This is so satisfying and helps combat those pesky post meal sugar cravings.
