What I Eat In a Day | Vegetarian Meals + Supplements

Welcome to a new What I Eat In a Day post! It’s been a while since I walked you through my day so I thought a Summery, vegetarian take on a traditional What I Eat In a Day would be fun. I’ll include my workout times as well so you can see how I handful pre-and-post workout nutrition, and supplements.

  • 5am – Water {My trick for getting in some water first thing is to keep a water bottle on my bedside table, I drink the whole thing before I leave for work}
  • 5:30am – Lemon water, Irish Breakfast tea, and more water
  • 7am – Morning detox shot {Monday, Wednesday & Friday – recipe coming soon!}
  • 8am – Collagen supplement {Currently using, and loving, Reserveage Collagen Capsules}
  • 9am – Breakfast time! I really enjoyed my Intermittent Fasting earlier this year and have read really interesting and thought-provoking pieces on the benefits of fasting and the longevity associated with cultures that practice fasting, I try to make it a part of my daily routine when I can. My breakfasts can vary, though I’ll go through phases where I eat the same thing every day. 🙂 Right now my go-to breakfast is Udi’s gluten-free bread with 1/4 avocado and Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning plus a smoothie.
  • 9:30am – On Tuesdays and Thursdays I take a Vitamin B and a Calcium supplement. I alternate the detox shot above and the supplements so I’m doing something different from the day before.
  • 11am – Workout: Bodyweight circuit or cardio session
  • 12pm – Lunch: Giant salad beast. I’ve been loading up on tons of water-rich veggies and healthy fats in my salads lately, and occasionally tossing in some marinated Hodo Soy tofu. I vary my topping often though, and like to mix things up so that I ensure I’m getting all of my micronutrients.
  • 2pm – Afternoon snack/pre-workout: Coconut yogurt + peanut butter or almond butter + cinnamon. This is my current favorite, I’ve been having this 3-4 times a week lately. If I’m out of yogurt or not in the mood, I’ll make a little dish of oatmeal with chia seeds and protein powder. {Note: I use Orgain protein powder in my smoothies and oats, it’s my absolute go-to}
  • 4:30pm – Workout: Training session at The Bay Club, cardio session, or a class
  • 6pm – I’ll usually munch on a No Cow bar while I’m walking home from the gym or while I’m starting dinner.
  • 6:30pm – Dinner! Yes, we eat early. 😉 I like my food to be digested before bed anyway, so eating early works well for me. Since I’ve been eating big salads for lunch the last few months, I’ve eaten fewer for dinner. Lately I’ve been craving roasted veggies instead – So a typical meal will be roasted veggies with EVOO + spices with a veggie burger and maybe some sautéed zucchini and squash with garlic and shallots. I like to mix up my veggies so one night it could be sweet potatoes, cauliflower the next, and broccoli the day after. And if I’m craving everything, I’ll throw whatever veggies I have prepped into a bowl with quinoa or brown rice – a la nourish bowl.
  • 7:30pm – The newest addition to my daily routine is doing a 10-20 minute yoga flow session before bed. I’ve been having trouble sleeping so it’s a great way to de-stress and relax before climbing into bed. Completely obsessed with the Boho Beautiful YouTube page.

Hope you enjoyed this little peek into my daily routine!

Just a quick reminder – Everyone’s nutrition and activity needs are different, so what works for me, may not necessarily work for you. The best approach to building a healthy, sustainable lifestyle is trial and error – Try different routines and foods and see how your body responds. And if you’re coming back from an injury or disordered eating habits, I highly recommend chatting with a doctor before making any big shifts.
