What I Eat in A Day

Normally when I tell people about my gluten-free, processed food free, vegan, very minimal soy diet, the first thing they ask is: WHAT DO YOU EAT? Aren’t you hungry?? Anybody who knows me usually laughs…because I eat a lot! I love food! Here’s a little sampling of what I eat in a day.

Breakfast number one:

Normally I start out my days with a huge green juice with cucumber, celery, lemon, and kale. If I had an early dinner I’ll make it a smoothie and throw in some fruit as well. Such a refreshing way to start the day!

 

Breakfast number two:

A delicious medley of coconut milk, soaked steel cut oats (certified gluten-free), soaked chia seeds topped with blueberries or some other sweetener such as stevia, a little coconut sugar, etc.

 

Snack (not pictured)

Baby carrots! I always keep some in the shared fridge at work.

 

Lunch

2013-07-08 13.39.06

OK, so this isn’t my greatest lunch ever because I was a weee on the lazy side today. Woops. I didn’t have time to make lunch, so I grabbed an avocado, some dulse flakes, and nutritional yeast and stuffed it in a bag on my way out of the house this morning. When it came time to lunch, I ordered a plain salad for delivery. I topped it off with the avocado and condiments and it was definitely not too bad!

 

Snack (not pictured)

About two handfuls of walnuts

 

Dinner

kale and quinoa

Quinoa, mushroom, and kale sauteed with coconut oil and gluten-free tamari. It was sooooo good!

 

Dessert

ice cream

Chia seed mixed with blueberry puree and a few spoonfuls of Luna and Larry’s Dairy-Free Coconut flavored ice-cream. Delicious!!

Rawlicious is Delicious

Has anyone ever been to rawlicious┬áin NYC? It is delicious! I think it might be tied with quintessence as my number 1, with Rockin Raw coming in a close second. Tucked away in a side-street in Soho, this place had my mouth watering from start to finish. I started off my meal with some veggie sushi rolls, which were stuffed with vibrant micro-green sprouts and topped with coconut aminos. Then, I had the raw vegan flat bread and pizza with dill cashew nut cheese and tomato marinara. And for my fellow Brooklynites, it’s only a few miles away from the bridge, so you can hop on your bikes and get a sweat on before replenishing with some rawliciousness.
