Last one until Monday

Hey guys!

So after reading through your comments and giving it some serious thought, I know that I definitely still want a whole day’s eats as part of my blog. Just not every single day.

My food tends to get repetitive, especially when I make a recipe that only I will eat and I repeat a meal several times over the course of a week!

So I plan to do a full day of eats, drinks and everything one time a week…on Mondays!

The rest of the days of the week will be focused on other things like recipes, products, weight loss challenges, thoughts, etc. This way I can keep posting on the blog daily but not get overwhelmed or think it’s too boring.

So enjoy, this is the last full day for a few 🙂


Raisin chocolate chip oatmeal.

Somehow I managed to leave my morning snack at home, so I had to break into part of my lunch early, which worked fine.


Then an hour or so later, I ate the rest of it which was leftover chickpeas and brown rice.


I drank a cup of Yogi Stress Relief tea but forgot to document it for you guys 😉

For my afternoon snack, I got to try a new flavor of Whole Soy & Co – apricot mango!


This was tasty and even though I’m not a huge fan of the 18g of sugar, that is lower than a lot of other soy yogurts on the market.

I just try to only have them once in a while.

After my snack, I went to a yoga class before heading home.

For dinner, I made another Morningstar Farms Grilled Chik’n patty on whole wheat bread with mustard and a side of broccoli with Smart Balance Light.


I think I will use my last one in spaghetti sauce again, they don’t have a whole lot of flavor on their own, but this dinner filled me up just fine.


After dinner settled, I headed to the gym and ran a few miles on the treadmill.

I rehydrated with this! Told ya, it’s becoming a habit.


I love these things. But does anyone know of any “natural” fitness drinks? I’d hate to keep spending $1 a pop since that is one of the reasons I gave up bars for Lent!

When I got home from the gym, I had a small serving of oats with almond butter and chocolate chips.


Perfect end to a pretty great day. See you guys tomorrow 🙂

  1. I haven’t been able to find a brand of faux meat that I’ve enjoyed. I think when something is too close to the texture of meat, it freaks me out (I’m not a vegetarian).

    • Yeah, some of them freak me out too. These are not too close to the texture of chicken, at least not like I remember. Chicken is more dense and tough where these things just kind of break right apart. I try not to use faux meat too much because there are just so many better alternatives out there like beans, tofu, etc. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Coconut water is a great natural drink to have to rehydrate after a good work-out. “Coconut water is a natural isotonic beverage filled with immune boosting vitamins and nutrients. This healthy electrolyte drink has potassium, calcium, and magnesium.”

    You can find cases of coconut water at many Indian grocery stores (that is where I get mine) for a good price, or Kroger has the ONE brand, but they are a little more espensive unless you stock up when they are on sale.

  3. I would also suggest coconut water, but I think it’s similarly expensive.
    Looks like a great and balanced day of eating! I love chickpeas and brown rice. And I’ve never thought of raisins and chocolate chips on oatmeal, sounds heavenly. Have a wonderful day!

  4. I feel like broccoli has been the star of the week! It’s showing up on everyone’s blogs! :p

    My eats get boring, too. I get on a kick and have the same thing days in a row… then move on to the next thing!

  5. Hi there! I saw your guest post on Tina’s blog and was thrilled to see you are from Louisville, KY. So am I! It’s great finding someone so close by! I look forward to reading more of your blog.

  6. Oh wow – do those oats ever look good!!!

  7. Mmm…almond butter and oats. Yum! I’ll miss the daily food diary-like posts, but I totally understand. I make big meals several days a week and eat the leftovers throughout the week, so that’s why I don’t document every meal on my blog. It’s just fun to see what other people eat in a day. 🙂

  8. You know how I feel about your eats…it makes me strive to eat better!!!!!

  9. I have to jump on the bandwagon late, for the selfish sake of readers – it’s nice to see how a healthy vegan based diet is executed daily. Keep sharing! 🙂
