Recently I got asked what I actually eat in a day...
... so I decided to show you :)
I eat differently every day and every week, depending on the season, my mood, the time I have etc. so this really is only an example from THIS week. This week I am pretty pretty busy, I work a lot and did not have much time to cook. So there was no lasagna and not even a bolognese because it simply would take too long to prepare.
So here we go with the morning... I usually start my day with some warm lemon water. I like to add some turmeric to it, some pepper and a little bit of maple syrup (it gets this really orange color because of the turmeric).
My second course in the morning is a green smoothie. Currently I am always making orange-kale-dates but sometimes I also feel like having some banans smoothie with aronia and greens or some orange-fennel smoothie.
Then fiiiinally I am getting to the third course (I usually have like a 45 minutes break between the smoothie and the "real" breakfast) which is either muesli, semolina pudding or oatmeal. I like to add spices such a vanilla, cinnamon and cardamon to my oats and semolina, and I always have some ground flaxseeds with my breakfast (sooooo healthy!). Usually I do not add fruit to my oats or muesli because of better digestion, but sometimes I simply do not care about digestion and I just add diced apples and bananas :)
Around four hours after breakfast I have lunch. Lunch is the "big meal" for me. I spend most time in the kitchen when I prepare lunch. However, as I wrote above, this week is a busy one, so the meals stayed simple. I had quiona with a stew of pointed cabbage, turnips and poatoes on one day and mashed poatoes (both white potatoes and sweet potatoes), green beans and some mushrooms with smoked tofu the other day.
In the afternoon I always need something sweet... this can either be a big banana-almond-date smoothie, or some golden milk (I will make a post about this, so I am not going to say too much about what this is right now ;)) or some sugar free soy yogurt with agave syrup and frozen beeeeeeries. Love it!
For dinner we usually keep it very simple. We often have pasta for dinner. Like this week, we had whole wheat spagetti with a vegan "cheese" sauce (made with potatoe, carrots and nutrional yeast) and alfalfa sprouts. But often we also simply eat bread with veggies. We often bake our own bread, sometimes we buy it in our organic market and sometimes I get lucky a receive some alkaline bread from Alvito made from buckwheat, sweet potatoe and potatoe. There are herbs inside which makes it very tasty! You can find more alkaline products on the website from Alvito. If you want to know more about the acid-base balance and why I prefer to eat more alkaline foods, feel free to check out this post of mine.
So the other day we had bread with a homemade kidney bean spread and some alfalfa sprouts. I usually prefer to make my own spread or to eat avocado with bread, because the store-bought ones are always loaded with oil.
Now finally, when the little one is in bed and I am sitting on the sofa, writing a blog post about what I eat in a day, I like to snack on some dates and sliced apples. And to have some tea :)
Sometimes I also have other snacks at night, like sugar free brownies (currently there are some black bean brownies waiting for me in the kitchen...) or banana nice cream or some hot chocolate (sweeteend with agave syrup).
Well, thats it. Thats an example of what I eat in a day... I think I eat around 3000 kalories a day, but I never count so I am really not sure. Anyway, I just enjoy and always try to eat as much as I can - because the more I eat, the more nutrients I get ;)
Did you find this post intersting? I could make one like this every once in a while, if you like!? Do you eat similar things or completly different? I would love to know!
Sending much love!
