Hi my lovelies!
As per usual, we have another What I Ate Wednesday! Plant based vegan style. I’ve been keeping up with these weekly posts for a while now 🙂
Hope you guys are having a great week, let’s get into my yummy eats.
HYDRATION & BREAKFAST:
Every single morning, water, water water, before anything else, as you guys probably know by now! I always make sure to drink 24 ounces (3 cups) of filtered water every single morning, sometimes with 1/2 lemon. I use this ginormous mason jar all day every day because its huge and lets me measure out my water intake (and no cup is ever big enough). Water helps to rehydrate the body after a long night’s rest when we get dehydrated and is so essential to wake up the body. It starts the day off right and is SO great for our skin.
I changed up my water this time though, and have been stirring in spirulina powder! I promise it doesn’t add a green taste whatsoever, I only add about 1/4 teaspoon for a little extra spirulina detox power. LOVE it. I’ll be writing a post on it soon!
Then I neeeed coffee, with my fave non-dairy creamer – the Silk Almond Vanilla Flavored Creamer (check out my superfood coffee elixir recipe too!).
I was starvingg for breakfast, so I made some PB Chia Oats that I’ll be sharing the recipe for on Friday. SO GOOD and peanut butter-y. I’ll fill you in on a little secret: I used this PB Fit Peanut Butter Powder from Better Body Foods for a lower in fat creamy peanut butter.
Later on while typing away, I snacked on a pink lady apple and some healthy cake bites which I will also be sharing soon! So many recipes to share ha.
Lunch was this kale quinoa bowl with a bbq veggie burger from Minimalist Baker and jalapeño kraut. Loved this combo and those veggie burgers… obsessed. I used this vegan bbq sauce from Simple Girl… been using it on everything! I also used their balsamic dressing for the kale. All the Simple Girl products are oil-free which I love.
For some quick pre-workout fuel, I snacked on carrot sticks with a big spoonful of almond butter. They just go together… and if you haven’t tried it, you need to asap!
After I got home from the gym, I made a quick protein shake with 1 scoop vega protein powder mixed into water. Forgot to take a pic! Then dinner was my Tofu Ricotta Lasagna which I meal prepped on Sunday. It’s super filling with lots of zucchini and hidden spinach! I literally crave this lasagna now… tastes so much like the real deal, no joke. Plus a side salad with baby kale, romaine, chopped carrots, shredded cabbage, hemp seeds and pepita seeds, with more of this balsamic dressing.
I snuck in a few pieces of dark chocolate too, andddd a glass of red wine!! Can’t help myself.
Hope you enjoyed this What I Ate Wednesday!
