A Day of Eating: September 29

Back at it for another edition of “what I eat in a day”. Why do I do these? Well, first of all, it’s not to prescribe any sort of meal plan or diet. I like showing you guys examples of what I eat because I always get questions about how I’m eating for. my goals and health. And truth be told, every day looks a little different. Some days I indulge. Some days I eat pretty clean. Some days are a combo of both. At the end of the day, what matters most is that I enjoy my food for what it is (fuel, celebrations, memories, experiences) instead of stressing about calories, losing weight, etc. And that’s what I want for you! So without further ado…


Nutrition notes: Gluten free, no refined sugar or artificial sweeteners, no processed foods. On this day specifically, I opted for a meatless menu. I usually one do this once/week.

Notes: I’m currently not tracking calories/macros at this point. Learning to eat a little more intuitively.

Note: My diet/nutrition is personal to me and is based on what has been recommended by my doctor. Before making any changes to your nutrition or diet, please consult with your physician or dietician.

7:00 Morning Routine

On the Menu:

I start every morning with…

8oz of hot water with lemon.

6oz of water mixed with Ora Organics Greens powder.

Supplements: Ora Organics Trust Your Gut Probiotic (great for gut health + digestion), Ora Organics Apple Cider Vinegar tablets, Ashwagandha (adaptogen for stress) and B12.

Fill up my 64oz Hydrojug to sip on throughout the first half of the day.

8:00 Breakfast

On the Menu:

Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free oats with a banana, cinnamon and honey.

I add a scoop of collagen or vanilla protein to the oats and water before I pop it into the microwave for a great boost of protein.

Top with almonds, chia seeds or additional berries!

10:30 Snack

On the Menu:

Ever since I invested in my very own espresso machine, my go-to snack for that mid-morning lull has been a pumpkin spiced latte. And yes, I even made my own pumpkin sauce – Starbucks has nothing on me.

How to make it: double espresso + 1 cup almond milk + 2 tbsp pumpkin sauce (recipe below) + ice. If serving hot, sprinkle with pumpkin spice seasoning or cinnamon.

Pumpkin sauce recipe: add 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup pumpkin purèe, 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp maple syrup, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg and 1 tsp vanilla extract to a small pot on the stove. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Store in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks in an airtight container or jar. Enjoy!

1:00 Lunch

On the Menu:

I was running errands and got super hungry so I stopped at my favorite wrap place – and it did not disappoint. I literally eat here once a week. They know my order by memory now. Oops.

What I order: gluten-free wrap with American cheese, romaine lettuce, bell peppers, cucumbers and pepperoncini peppers. Sometimes I’ll add ham or turkey. And I always get a bag of gluten-free potato chips. Salt & vinegar is life.

4:00 Snack

On the Menu:

The Simple Mills almond flour crackers are by far one of my favorite snacks for when I’m craving something salty. The sea salt version reminds me of wheat things – so crunchy and delicious!

Pair with sliced turkey or peanut butter for a protein-packed snack.

6:30 Dinner

On the Menu:

This picture does my favorite pasta recipe zero justice but believe me when I say you’re gonna love this stuff.

Cook a box of lentil or chickpea pasta per the package directions. Strain, set aside 1/2 cup of pasta water. Toss 2 cups of baby tomatoes in olive oil and roast in the oven at 400 degrees to 20. minutes.

For the sauce: in a blender combine 1 jar roasted red peppers (strained), 1 bunch basil, 1/2 cup pasta water, 1/4 cup pine nuts, salt and pepper. Blend until smooth.

Toss cooked pasta, roasted tomatoes and red pepper sauce. Makes 4 servings!

    It all looks scrumptious! So glad you put in the recipes for the gluten fee pasta and told us what was in your fave wrap.
    (Agree salt and vinegar potato chips are the best!). We had them here in Canada long before the US so I always had to make sure I packed many bags for my US relatives and friends.
