Hi everyone, I told you in my March goals that this month I wanted to eat nothing but whole foods in attempt to make my stomach happier and be generally healthier. I know this sounds boring to some people, so I decided to show you what that really looked like for me. Obviously, everyone eats differently and this is just one day.
This is quite surprising for me. Usually as soon as October hits and it gets cold, I stay away from smoothie bowls for basically 6 months. Lately, they’re all I’ve been craving for breakfast. They’re a great way to add protein and healthy fats depending on your toppings.
I like to add protein powder to mine and I usually like to have some fresh fruit and something crunchy, whether that be nuts or some granola for a variety of textures.
Mine was after the gym on this day so the bowl was plentiful.
Yes, I had a blueberry smoothie for breakfast, a blueberry muffin Nakd bar as a snack and I bought another blueberry smoothie later. Can you tell what my favourite fruit is? I like the Naked juices as they have added vitamins in them, including B12. In fact, a serving contains overe 100% of the amount of B12 you need in a day (using RDA as a guideline). This is great as it’s a vitamin many people don’t absorb well, I prefer to get mine from a few different places. I like to stick mainly to fruits and nuts as snacks generally rather than eating empty calories on something like crisps.
Broccoli, Squash and Quinoa
I make this dish quite a lot. It’s really simple and tenderstem broccoli happens to be my favourite vegetable. This dish contains chilli roasted butternut squash, quinoa an tenderstem broccoli drizzled with a little balsamic vinegar and lemon juice.
There we have it, everything I ate on this particular day. There’s a really beauty in eating a whole foods diet, having so many fresh fruits and vegetables in your meals makes them look so vibrant and appetising. To see a what I eat in a day for a non whole foods diet, click here.
Until next time,
