What I Eat in a Day #1

Hello everyone,

Today I thought I would do something different and something I’ve wanted to do for quite some time. Today I will share with you what I eat in a day. All of the meals are vegetarian and dairy-free. I am not dairy-free all the time but I’m trying to eliminate dairy products from my diet as much as possible and on this particular day I happened to accomplish that.

Just a small disclaimer, I’m not a dietitian, this is just me sharing my meals with you. Also, I don’t count my macros nor I have any idea whatsoever about the calorie content.

Breakfast

I can’t skip breakfast. I always wake up hungry. It might have something to do with the fact that I eat my dinner fairly early but about that later. I’ve recently been obsessed with this egg porridge. Yes, that’s a thing. I feel like I just need to say that I have pretty strong digestion so my body responds well to the oats but I know that some people might have a problem with them. If it’s your case, I would rather opt for overnight oats or simply stove cooked porridge.

You will need:
 Banana
 Egg
 Flax seeds
 Oats
Mash the banana, add the egg, flax seeds, and oats, mix the ingredients together and put in the microwave for about two minutes and you’re done! Sometimes I eat it without any toppings but for the sake of this post, I decided to add some natural peanut butter and blueberries. I also like to drink a cup of green tea with my breakfast. And the best thing about this porridge is that it keeps me full forever. Or at least until lunch.

Lunch

Well, since the breakfast is really filling I usually have just a light lunch. Today, I decided to have a sort of scrambled eggs.

You will need:
 Eggs
 Kale
 Tomatoes
 Mushrooms
Cut the tomatoes and mushrooms and fry them together with the eggs and kale on a pan as long as you like. I personally like it quite dry but I know some people like their scrambled eggs gooey.

Snack

If I have a snack I tend to opt for something light. Just like this bowl of natural peanut butter and grapes.

Dinner

As I indicated before, I tend to eat my dinner quite early. Usually around 6PM. Today I decided to cook lentils with some vegetables. I chose red lentils because I like the taste better but it’s up to you. Likewise, with the beans. You can use any kind of beans of your choice. I used red kidney beans.

You will need:
 Lentils
 Kale
 Tomatoes
 Green peas
 Cucumber
 Beans
 Hummus
Cook the lentils together with the kale and tomatoes in a pot. I don’t really know how long should it take because the packaging of my lentils says “simmer for twenty minutes” but it only takes about five minutes. Nevertheless, when the lentils are done, add the peas, cucumber, and beans into the mixture and for some reason, I like to add a bit of hummus on top. I’m just obsessed with hummus.

So, I guess that’s it for today’s post. I hope you enjoyed it and don’t forget to check out the video version on my YouTube channel here.
