WHAT I EAT IN A DAY AS A PLANT-BASED DIETITIAN

Updated: Nov 10, 2020

Lets talk grub.



First and foremost: I am a HUGE proponent of keeping your eyes on your own plate when it comes to food. There is no one "right way" to eat, and the nourishment we require varies greatly day by day, as well as from person to person. Some days I have balanced meals and snacks, other days there's primarily maple syrup, dark chocolate and home-fries running through my veins. THIS IS NORMAL.


Never compare yourself or your plate to those who likely have NOTHING in common with you, metabolically or emotionally. Comparison is the thief of joy. A girlfriend of mine can get full & satisfied on a green salad with chicken breast for dinner. I think she's quite clinically insane. I'm not a salad lover, especially ones without beans or whole grains on board. But you know what? She could be struggling with gut health and have been placed on a strict elimination diet without my knowledge. She might be headed to a dinner party afterwards, and trying to save room for her favorite pasta dish. She might be miserably yo-yo dieting her way to a damaged metabolism. Or have lost her appetite from botching a huge presentation at work that day.


ITS NONE OF MY BUSINESS.


With that being said, please take this post with a grain of salt. Here's what a plant-based mama, foodie, stress-baker, fruit-monster, peanut-butter addict, hanger-prone, happens-to-be-a-Dietitian, might eat in a day. I hope you find an ounce of inspiration or deliciousity to take with you on your way.
