What I eat in a day // getting back on track after traveling

My family and I went on a trip recently to Phoenix. We’re back home now, and after eating out for every meal (and eating way too much at Whole Foods) I’m definitely not feeling great. Here’s a quick what I ate today post of me trying to be healthy but also not really wanting to cook since I’m back at work too.

Breakfast pt. 1: a smoothie.

This morning I blended together

  • 1 cup cashew milk
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 cup frozen chopped kale
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 scoop Vanilla protein powder from Vega.

Breakfast pt. 2: a burrito.

DJ made some fried rice last night, so I made a lazy breakfast burrito (I was running late to work) with the leftover rice, a slice of Chao vegan cheese, and Tofurky sausage. I also loaded it with Taco Bell’s diablo sauce.

Lunch: more leftover fried rice with spinach and kale.

Since we just got back and we don’t have a large selection of food to choose from just yet, I ate some more of that leftover fried rice with LOTS of spinach and kale for lunch. It was about 1/2 cup rice to 1 cup spinach and kale.

Dinner: potatoes.

I love eating just potatoes and greens for dinner, so I did just that when I got home from work (except for the greens, because it was really late). I threw some sliced potatoes in the oven and DJ had made a ranchero sauce earlier that day, so I had some of that on the side. He made the sauce with two habanero peppers, two anaheim peppers, one green pepper, some radish slices, a block of tofu, two cloves garlic, cashew milk, vegan protein broth, and a slice or two of Chao vegan cheese. He didn’t measure anything, but we’ll have a written recipe up fairly soon. We’re going to use it on enchiladas later today.

That’s everything I ate this day. Most of it was just what we had leftover in the fridge and freezer and what could be put together quickly. What are your go-to healthy and quick meals? Let me know in the comments!
