If there’s one Youtube trend that I’ve totally gotten sucked into this year it’s definitely the ‘What I Eat In A Day’ series. I’m a massive foodie and always have been, so there’s something that really interests me about what others eat on a daily basis! I’ve been wanting to share some recipes on my blog for a while but never know if they fit in with my content, so what better way than to share my own ‘what I eat in a day’. Everything I eat is vegetarian so I might be able to share some inspiration on the sort of meals I have as well as following a rough 80/20 rule of healthy eating.
- Breakfast: I’m a massive lover of pancakes and although I save the best kind for a treat I wanted to give Madeline Shaw’s Almond Pancakes a go from her first book for a change. They’re completely gluten free and vegan and they taste delicious! They totally cure any sweet cravings whilst being substantial enough to fill me up for a good couple of hours. I topped the pancakes with some strawberries, maple syrup, a banana halved and cooked in a teaspoon of coconut oil and cinnamon. So tasty and full of amazing goodness.
- Mid-morning: Every morning I always have a lemon tea. It’s so refreshing and great for the digestive system whilst energising you for the day ahead!
- Lunch: I created this Halloumi & Sweet Chilli Salad inspired by one of my favourite meals at Bills. I start with a base of salad leaves, sprinkle on some salt and pepper, add in some chopped veggies (cucumber, peppers, tomatoes, avocado etc…) drizzle with sweet chilli sauce and finish off with 3 slices of halloumi. Super simple to make and it’s honestly SO delicious!!
- Afternoon Snack: I’m obsessed with Lotus Biscoff Biscuits (which are also vegan) so a couple of these with a cup of tea are the perfect treat.
- Tea: In the evenings I love a good home cooked meal and today I opted for some comfort food. The whole meal took around 15 minutes to create from scratch which is great if you don’t have much time. I whizzed up the sauce, whilst my pasta was cooking, by blending together a can of chopped tomatoes, fresh basil, chilli, salt and pepper. However you can add in literally any ingredients you fancy. I added some extra peppers and cherry tomatoes as soon as the pasta was done which add a lovely crunch, mixed in the sauce and sprinkled some cheese on top.
- Evening snack: More often than not I finish off the day with a fruit salad. For some reason I always crave some fresh fruit in the evenings around 9pm depending on how hungry I am! I normally just chop up whatever I have around and this time it was a banana and some strawberries. Super simple and healthy!
That’s pretty much everything what I eat in a day when I don’t have work. It’s all really simple meals that are good for you and still delicious. Let me know if you want to see more of these!
