MY DAILY DIET
Some people have requested that I write down what I tend to eat on a daily basis, so here it is.
Remember, this is how I eat about 80% of the time. I do believe once you have reached your ultimate goal, it is okay to eat certain things in moderation and have a healthy balance to your lifestyle.
FIRST THING IN THE MORNING:
I squeeze some fresh lemon juice into room temperature alkaline water. This is a great way to start the day off right and alkalinize your system. I try my best to stay away from coffee after that as that is just putting acid back in and blowing what I just tried to accomplish. It is good to wait 20 minutes after you drink your lemon water before drinking or eating anything else.
After 20 minutes, I like to have my green juice. I mix fresh kale and spinach with 1 cup of water in my VitaMix. I add ½ banana and a handful of frozen mango chunks and blend away. It is so incredibly good for you, and I think quite tasty.
I like to wait about an hour after I have my green juice before I eat my breakfast. Here are a few of the things that I like to have on a regular basis:
Lately I’ve been mixing a wonderful vanilla plant based vegan protein powder I get at Whole Foods with 1 Tbsp. of ground flaxseed, 1 packet of Raw Reserve I also get at Whole Foods, which is an amazing superfood with probiotics. Then, I add some frozen strawberries, ½ frozen banana, frozen blueberries or mango. It is so delicious and very satisfying. I’m good to go for about 3 hours after drinking that!
STEEL CUT OATMEAL WITH ½ BANANA
This breakfast is loaded with fiber and truly one of the healthiest things you can eat. I like to sprinkle some cinnamon on top too.
SCRAMBLED EGGS WITH AVACADO AND SALSA
I scramble 2 to 3 eggs and top it with either a few slices of avacado or fresh guacamole and some salsa. My morning Mexican fiesta!
GREEK YOGURT AND BLUEBERRIES
MY FAVORITE SALAD
I use mixed greens, cucumbers, radishes, orange/yellow/red peppers. Sunflower sprouts (or whatever sprouts I can get), tomatoes, ¼ avacado, and I sprinkle some raw sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds on top. For my dressing, I mix a good balsamic vinegar and flax oil (I get in the refrigerated section at Whole Foods). It gives it a nutty flavor. Seriously, I could eat this salad for every meal I love it so much. You could also add a scoop of tuna or add some strips of chicken breast, salmon on top if you want protein.
ONE HALF SANDWICH AND SMALL GREEN SALAD
I like Turkey with mustard, vegenaise, tomatoes and lettuce.
KALE SALAD WITH WALNUTS OR PINE-NUTS
ONE HALF TURKEY BURGER (OR BUFFALO BURGER) ON GLUTEN FREE BREAD AND SIDE SALAD
I like to have half of the burger and take the other half to go and have it 3 hours later. Better to fill up on the greens so it won’t be a huge splurge. I also get a natural ketchup (Annie’s) from the health food store.
When I want a lighter lunch, I love this brand. I either have it with a side salad or some Nut Thin Crackers
SALMON AND STIR FRY VEGGIES
I try to eat salmon at least 2x per week as it is loaded with Omega 3’s and so good for you. I also like Halibut, Red Snapper and most fish.
If I stir fry my veggies, I use broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, red peppers and snap peas. I use coconut oil and then when they are cooked, I add Bragg’s Amino Acids on top for more flavor.
SASHIMI AND SEAWEED SALAD/EDAMAME
I love my sushi but try my best to stay away from all the cut rolls, as the white rice isn’t great for you. You should stay away from White Products in general (Starchy Carbs).
GRILLED CHICKEN BREAST AND STEAMED VEGGIES WITH QUINOA
This is a delicious, healthy meal and very filling. Just remember portion control! The protein should be the size of the palm of your hand, as well as the quinoa.
Because I eat small mini meals throughout the day, I like to have a snack in between those meals to keep my metabolism going and also to make sure I never get too hungry and want to over eat.
HANDFUL OF RAW ALMONDS/WALNUTS/BRAZIL NUTS
RAW VEGGIES AND HUMMUS
A FEW CUPS OF SKINNY POPCORN
ONE STRING CHEESE
NUT THIN CRACKERS WITH TUNA
SLICED TOMATOES AND AVACADO WITH BRAGG’S SEASON SALT
WATER, WATER, WATER!
Don’t eat 3 hours before bedtime so you can turn your body into a fat burning machine while sleeping
So, that’s pretty much it. Pretty clean and simple! When I stick to this way of eating, I feel great and I stay lean. Try following it for a few weeks and let me know how you feel.
Remember to CHOOSE HAPPINESS and PRACTICE MINDFUL EATING. You will not only transform your body, but you will EMPOWER YOUR LIFE!!
