What I Ate Wednesday
Welcome! I just want to preface this by saying this is what I ate on a day that I ran 4 miles, lifted weights for an hour, and spent the afternoon at work. Everyone is different, so eat based on YOUR own needs. Hopefully, this is a helpful example for someone looking to see that it is MORE than possible to be an active vegan runner.
Is it chia pudding? Overnight oats? Zoats? Yogurt bowl? Who knows! It’s sort of a combination of all of the super yummy breakfast foods we all know and love. Oats, chia seeds, shredded zucchini, vanilla bean cashew yogurt, mango, banana, and sunflower seed butter!
I had a few (3) of these homemade fig newton energy balls. Basically dried figs, oats, and walnut butter. Literally, 3 ingredients and they take 5 minutes to make. Warning: they will not last long!
I had work today so I packed a lunch in my Planet Box! First off, I made sprouted brown rice with cilantro and lime, oil-free baked sriracha tofu, black beans, pico de gallo, avocado with lime juice (to prevent browning), and underneath all of that is some steamed broccoli and cauliflower.
I also packed a snack for work: strawberries and some mango ginger herbal tea. Enough said.
Dinner is the usual: the BEST vegan chili ever and a “side” of avocado toast. Is it still a side if it’s half of your meal?! LOL, whoops.
Surprise! One mango with breakfast wasn’t enough so I had another one after dinner. Just cherishing mangos while they are in season!
