Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well. One of my most asked questions is “What do you typically eat in a day, or in a week?”. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have learned that I am super into healthy eating, nutrition, and just what is going into the food we are fueling our bodies with. With that said, I try my best to eat clean, whole, and healthy – but of course cannot obtain that every single day, I’m human! I crave junk food every now and then, and guess what, I eat it!
I don’t really follow a “diet”. Being a pescatarian (mostly vegetarian), the majority of my meals consist of vegetables and some sort of protein (beans, tofu, etc.). I eat when I’m hungry, until I am full. I try my best to recognize when I am full so I am not over eating, but besides that, I don’t really follow any strict guidelines. I don’t have a set number of meals per day, but I typically eat 3 meals (breakfast, lunch & dinner) with 1 snack in between each meal. That is just what works for me!
Here is an example of “What I Eat In A Week”. This was this week’s meals that I kept track of in my phone notepad to share in this post!
Breakfast: Oatmeal w/ strawberries + blueberries, honey and cinnamon
Snack: Apples w/ peanut butter
Lunch: Avocado toast with sliced tomato, everything but the bagel seasoning
Snack: Hippeas (one of my favorites)
Dinner: Quinoa, lentils (such a good source of protein for my vegetarian friends!), broccoli
Breakfast: Protein shake (Olly vanilla protein powder), frozen strawberries, blueberries, banana, water
Snack: Didn’t have a snack this day!
Lunch: Wrap with leftover lentils from last night’s dinner, arugula, tomato, feta cheese, and hummus
Snack: Carrots w/ ranch dressing
Dinner: Tacos (vegetarian taco meat, rice, tomatoes, guacamole, chobani greek yogurt, hot sauce)
Breakfast: Peanut butter protein balls (will share recipe soon, so good!)
Lunch: Salad (mixed greens, candied walnuts, raisins, feta cheese, sliced apple, oil + apple cider vinegar)
Snack: Skinny Pop
Dinner: Banza chickpea pasta w/ olive oil, garlic, and broccoli, side salad
Breakfast: 2 egg whites, 1 egg scrambled with diced avocado and tomato
Snack: Granola (will also share my recipe for homemade granola soon!)
Lunch: Ordered in a “greek bowl” from a local health-food store (quinoa, tomato, kalamata olives, onions, feta cheese, chickpeas)
Snack: Didn’t have a snack today!
Dinner: Cauliflower pizza (I use the Trader Joe’s crust or the Cauliplower brand), I like to add a sauteed vegetable on top (spinach, arugula, etc.)
Breakfast: Protein shake (see above)
Snack: Fruit plate (watermelon, canteloupe, kiwi, blueberries, strawberries)
Lunch: Breakfast tacos (scrambled eggs, avocado, tomato, jalepeno, cilantro, chobani greek yogurt)
Dinner: One of my favorite dishes – Orzo pasta, diced onions, feta cheese, kalamata olives, chickpeas, cilantro, homemade dressing (olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, mustard powder, salt, pepper, thyme)
Weekends are really a free-for-all for me, in all honesty. I try to eat super clean + healthy throughout the week, and weekends can get hectic. I obviously still try to be conscious of my meal choices on the weekend, but if I want to treat myself a little, I will! Also that doesn’t go to say that during the week if I want something (like my guilty pleasure, salt + vinegar chips), I won’t have them… because I definitely will!
I shared a Youtube video sharing a “What I Eat In A Week” a few months back, that you can find below. I plan on filming more of these videos soon, as my weekly meals change all the time. I know as a vegetarian it can become difficulty finding different meals that are tasty while also helping us get all of the nutrients we need throughout the day, so I hope these videos will be helpful to you!
