What I Eat in a Day | Vegetarian Edition

While I often eat fully vegan, there are days where I incorporate eggs into my diet. Today I’ll be showing you what I consume during one of these vegetarian days! {I’ll be including my drinks and supplements as well so that you can see how I’m rounding out my nutrition most days}

5am – I start with a full water bottle of room temperature water. I like starting with this little ritual for a few reasons. It starts the day on a healthy note, get you started on your hydration goal for the day, and helps flush your system.

6am – Detox shot. I’ve shared this little recipe before – Morning Routine – But it’s been updated a bit in recent months. I figured, since it already tastes awful, I might as well throw in some other powders and supplements! 🙂 These days my shot contains: Lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, turmeric, ginger, chaga mushroom extract, and green superfood powder. Add a little water and shoot. I usually chase it with a strawberry.

8am – Breakfast time varies, I’d say 8am is the average. I tend to wake up hungry if I have a carb-heavy dinner the night before, in which case I’ll eat at 7am. After months and months of oats, I finally had enough {for now!} and moved on to scrambles. I meal prep on Sundays and prep a frittata or scramble for the week and portion it out, plus salsa, into glass Tupperware for the week. My combo these days is 1 egg, egg whites, peppers, sweet potato, red onion, garlic, tomatoes, spinach, and a heavy dose of turmeric.

9am – After breakfast I take my supplements: Vitamin B12 {important for non-meat eaters}, Calcium, and Potassium.

11am – BCAAs for my workout

12pm – Smoothie time! I generally go back and forth between my green peanut butter smoothie and a berry version.

1pm – Protein pancakes. While I’m prepping my eggs on Sunday I also make some pancakes to take as a post-workout snack. Super easy, tasty recipe – Tone It Up protein powder, egg whites, cinnamon, and 1/3 banana.

4pm – I usually have a No Cow bar on the way out of the office to the gym. Gives me a boost of energy for the workout and holds me over until dinner.

6pm – We go to bed pretty early so I like to plan dinner for 6pm-6:30pm. Similar to the oats, I sort of burned myself out on salads for a while, but I’m starting to get back in the mood again. These days dinner is usually a roasted/sautéed veggie bowl with brown rice/quinoa, or a salad beast with a veggie burger or tofu.

7pm – I usually finish off the day with raw nuts and dried fruit. My current favorites are pecans, walnuts, almonds, and goji berries or mulberries. Yum!
