I love watching other people’s “What I Eat in a Day” videos! For some reason I find it so fascinating what people will consume on the daily and I love finding new food inspiration. I decided to make my own video this week and show you what I would make on a typical week day. So if you’re looking for some quick, easy, and healthy meal ideas to change up your own diet, I’ve included breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes both here and on film. These meals are not fully vegetarian or vegan as they include eggs (which can easily be swapped for tofu or another alternative) but they are all meatless! Check it out:
Green Smoothie & Power Oatmeal: (10 minutes prep & cook)
Green Smoothie Ingredients:
Handful of chopped kale or spinach
1 tsp chia seeds
1 cup almond milk
1 1/2 tsp honey or agave nectar
Blend all ingredients together and serve fresh.
Power Oatmeal Ingredients:
1/2 cup of 1 minute oats
almond milk to cover
1 small scoop of chocolate whey protein powder
1 tsp pure cocoa powder
handful of frozen cranberries
1 tbsp raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 tsp chia seeds
pinch of cinnamon
Pour almond milk over the oats until they are just covered in a bowl. Microwave the oats for roughly a minute and a half until the oats have absorbed the milk. Stir in protein powder and cocoa powder. Add banana, cranberries, seeds, and cinnamon as toppings. Serve hot.
Pimped Out Rice Cakes: (10 minutes prep & cook)
spelt cakes or plain rice cakes

Mash avocado with lime juice, salt, and pepper. Spread guacamole mash onto spelt or rice cakes. Add fried egg and sliced radish on top. Spread peanut butter on other spelt/rice cakes. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds and coconut shreds.
Sweet Potato Quinoa Plate: (40 minutes prep & cook)
black quinoa (red or regular quinoa or brown rice optional)
1/2 a sweet potato
1/4 cup black beans
1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp olive oil
1 large handful of kale
sea salt and pepper
Recommended: pesto sauce, hot sauce, cilantro, chives
Roast chopped sweet potato at 425 degrees Fahrenheit with olive oil, cumin, salt and pepper for 20 minutes. Meanwhile cook quinoa according to package directions. Add black beans and bake for 5-10 minutes more until potatoes are soft to poke with fork. Fry or poach one egg. Sauté kale in same pan if frying. Drizzle kale with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Arrange quinoa, potatoes and beans, kale, and egg onto plate. Serve with freshly squeezed lime juice, and recommended sauces.
