This is how a usual full day of eating looks like for me.
We’re diving into the recipes, step by step.
I’m always starting my day with lemon water.
It helps me get hydrated from the very beginning of the day.
Let me just point out that lemon water is not directly linked to weight loss in any way other than hydration.
However, I like infusing my water with lemon instead of having it plain first thing in the morning – I just like the flavor better.
I usually have my breakfast at 8:30.
And the most common breakfast I have is my vegan oat pancakes.
This recipe was not vegan to start with, however I modified it and found a combo that works for me best.
Here’s the recipe…
@fitgirlsdiaryHealthy vegan breakfast pancakes 🥞😋 YOU HAVE TO TRY THESE! ##healthyfood ##healthycooking ##nutrition ##healthyrecipes ##mealplan ##diet♬ original sound – simplecreativecraft
- 1 mashed banana
- 1/2 cup oat milk
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
Mix all of the ingredients together.
Cook small pancakes, 1 pancakes = 2 tablespoons from the mixture.
Once the pancakes are cooked, top them with peanut butter and berries by choice.
Cold Brew Coffee
I have my cold brew coffee almost right after my breakfast.
I don’t add sugar or milk in it, simply because I like it more that way.
I am a real sucker for strong coffee, and like having it as is.
Quinoa Chickpea Salad
If you are on my Radiate Program you already know this recipe too.
It’s an easy fix for whenever you don’t have the time to cook, yet it’s a super healthy and delicious one.
Let’s head on to the recipe…
- 1 cup cooked quinoa
- 1/3 cup chickpeas
- 1 tomato, cubed
- 1/2 avocado, diced
- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 1/2 lemon, freshly squeezed
- Olive oil, salt and pepper
In a salad bowl mix all of the ingredients: chickpeas, quinoa, tomato, avocado, and red onion.
Drizzle olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice, and sprinkle salt and pepper.
Mix everything nicely, so that all of the ingredients are well combined.
Matcha Green Tea
Usually I’ll have one more coffee or matcha tea an hour or two after my lunch.
What can I say, I’m addicted to caffeine :)
I have my dinner right after I finish with my workout.
I usually work out at 19:00, so my dinner is usually at 20:00.
And this is one of my favorite dinner recipes.
I don’t really like plain green peas, so this recipe allows me to have my peas in a more delicious way.
They are super easy to make, let’s head on to the recipe.
- 1/2 cup chickpeas, canned
- 1/2 cup green peas, frozen
- 1 tablespoon oat flour (or 1 tablespoons rolled oats, blended)
- 1/2 onion
- 1 tablespoons tahini
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
- 1 teaspoon ground flax seeds
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Spices: ground cumin, red pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper
Rinse the chickpeas and drain them nicely and add them to a food processor.
Thaw the green peas into hot water and give them a nice rinse.
Drain them nicely, before tossing them in the food processor, squeezing them with your hands so that all of the water comes out.
We want to get rid of as much moisture as possible so that our patties stick together.
Add the onion, parsley, 1 tablespoon tahini, 1 tablespoon oat flour, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoon ground flax seeds, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and all of the spices.
Blend until all of the ingredients are combined.
Start forming small patties from the dough with your hands. They should be about a tablespoon and a half big.
As you make the patties, lay them on a baking sheet, and drizzle few drops of olive oil over each patty.
Cook them for around 30 minutes in preheat oven to 400F.
And last but not least, I have my plant based protein.
I used whey protein on a daily basis when I was a meat-eater, so after going plant based I continued using protein supplements in a form of pea protein.
I usually have it at 22:00, an hour or two before bed.
Give It A Try!
If you’ve been waiting for a sign to start eating healthy, or maybe try going plant based, this is it!
I challenge you to try out my full day of eating vegan, and see if it’s something you like.
These recipes may look tempting and complicated, but they are super simple and easy to make.
After realizing I was in a toxic diet mindset for years, I promised myself that I’m not going to settle for anything but delicious.
And that’s what I actually do on a daily basis now – I make sure I LOVE the foods I eat.
I really hope I showed you that you can still get fit, lose weight, and stay in shape, while enjoying the foods you eat.
Till next time, babes!
