Currently writing this post while also making minestrone soup…! How perfect on this cloudy day, can’t wait to share the recipe 🙂
Anyway, here’s a full day of my yummy plant based eats!
My morning always starts with hydration, before anything else. About 4 cups of filtered water with liquid iodine – a new addition to my routine that has worked wonders for my PMS. Read more about iodine here! This is habit to me now, but I used to need friendly reminders to get my water in before diving into breakfast, which is why I share it here with you guys!
In case you were wondering, I drink out of this huge 32 ounce mason jar all day, because I can measure out how much I’m drinking (I aim for 2-3 liters per day) and I’m not wasting plastic water bottles. I also use this Aqua Gear water filter which is better than Brita, but any filtered water is better than tap so do what you can.
Currently in my luteal phase and woke up super hungry, so I quickly made a protein shake with the Vega Protein & Greens, mixed with water, and then made this yummy Chia Cinnamon Yogurt Jar, along with my supplements too (and brazil nuts!). Recipe below! Also check out my Happy Hormone Smoothie Formula, if you’re in the mood for a smoothie!
Chia Cinnamon Yogurt Jar
3/4 cup plain coconut yogurt (I like So Delicious)
2 tablespoons chia seed
1 tablespoon ground flax
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup almond milk
**topped with chopped apple, almond butter and raisins
That breakfast kept me pretty full until lunch so I didn’t feel like a snack. Lunch was the coziest bowl of mac and cheese! I made the Banza Chickpea Pasta and this mac and cheese sauce – sprinkled with hemp seeds, cilantro and extra red pepper flakes. So YUMM. I loved every second.
A couple hours later, I was in a snacking mood! The Vega Protein Bar in Chocolate Caramel kinda tastes like a Snickers… not gunna lie! I also snacked on an apple with almond butter before the gym.
I felt like my day was missing some greens, so I got them in at dinner! A mixed bowl of my California Chopped Kale Salad and steamed broccoli plus cauliflower, sprinkled with nutritional yeast.
Definitely in a chocolate kind of mood this week, so I ate all the vegan dark chocolate chips after dinner 🙂
Plus, magnesium is essential in the luteal phase, so I made my nightly cup of Calming Magnesium Beauty Sleep Tea before bed! I swear it puts me right to sleep!
Hope you enjoyed this What I Ate Wednesday!
