My clients are fascinated and intrigued by what I eat so although it changes a little day by day, here is a general example of what I would eat in a day.
Breakfast: Oatmeal with calcium fortified soymilk, cinnamon, maple syrup, walnuts (or hemp/flax) and frozen organic blueberries and raspberries. This keeps me going until just before midday usually as it is so filling. I tend alternate oatmeal and pancakes with a tahini chocolate sauce, hemp seeds & berries for breakfast.
Morning Tea: If I am hungry, I might have a chopped apple with almond butter.
Lunch: I usually have a sandwich with homemade hummus, falafel, scallions, cooked beetroot, spinach, avocado and sometimes a slice of vegan cheese. I have this with a beetroot & ginger juice or herbal tea. Alternatively, I love a chickpea flour omlette with black salt, veggies and some avocado toast with sesame seeds on the side.
Afternoon Tea: I commonly make a smoothie in the afternoon. I combine frozen mango, frozen banana, raw beetroot, spinach & kale, frozen berries, coconut yogurt, coconut water (or soymilk), ¼ scoop of prana on protein powder (banana flavour) some flaxmeal & sometimes a spoonful of almond or peanut butter. My kids and I enjoy it & it keeps us satisfied until dinner time.
Dinner: My favourite at the moment is my homemade vegan lasagna with basil, macadamias and zucchini. My kids won’t it though (more for me!) so I sometimes make them a rice dish with coconut milk, kidney beans, peas, onions & garlic with guacamole on top. I also love bean burritos, vegan Bolognese, tofu stir fries and curries for dinner.
Snack: Before bed I might have a few squares of dark chocolate, a bliss ball or a bowl of popcorn.
I take a marine algae supplement daily and a B12 spray every other day. I try to get 5-10 minutes of sun exposure most days to maintain my vitamin D levels.
