Confession #1: my meals are not extravagant and often have less than 7 ingredients. As a person on the run, my lifestyle consists of prepping meals beforehand to keep me energized throughout the day. Many people think, oh she is a Nutritionist, she can afford the time to cook all day. Unfortunately, this is not the case but the times I do cook, I cherish. For this reason, I show how the food was prepared below in (()) to show the heathy vegan foodie I am.
Confession #2: If I want a velvety vegan grilled cheese or a mountain size nacho plate, I will make it or go out and find it if need be! Don’t get it twisted, I am human and have cravings too. Confession #3: The ease of a healthy vegan diet is balance and is simpler than many think.
Acai Bowl to start my day (blended and topped)
Sweet and Spicy Garlic Roasted Trail Mix for Snacking (prepped)
Big veggie salad with toppings on toppings (thrown together)
Snackin’ on veggie packed spring rolls, GF tamari and herbal tea (prepped)
Quinoa, tempeh stirfry with asparagus for dinner (quinoa prepped, and the rest cooked with love)
Feel free to share some of your favorite go-to meals with me.
Stay healthy my friends!
