SO WHAT DO YOU EAT?

Since I have switched to a vegan lifestyle one of the questions that I am asked is, "So What Do You Eat?" I mean I probably would ask the same question if the roles were reversed. Truth is, when you are limited to eating the foods that you are use to eating you discover that there are so many other healthy good foods out here.

So, I'll start with breakfast. Particularly, throughout the work week I have oatmeal with cinnamon and raisins. More recently, I try to have at least a cup of almond milk in the morning as a source of Vitamin D and Vitamin B12.



I use to try to eat something every two hours during the work hours but honestly sometimes it's shorter than two hours but definitely longer than two hours after I leave work.

Nevertheless, I have plenty of snacks between breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I typically have a banana, orange, and cashews about five days a week. I also love brown rice cakes with almond butter. Some other snacks that I may eat include pumpkins seeds, cucumber slices, and almonds.






For lunch, I try to cook mostly but occasionally I do buy out. I just set a new goal to only buy lunch and dinner out once a week.

Dinner usually consists of spinach, asparagus, avocado, sweet potato, squash, or zucchini.





Here lately I have been drinking green tea a lot and I have even graduated to drinking it without honey or any type of sweetner. I only drink water, almond milk, green tea, ginger tea (haven't in a while), and I drink juice that I make with my omega juicer.

Well there you have it, some of the things that I eat and I try to add variety every now and then. There is always something new to learn and try.

  1. Everything that lives must be feed, and life extention is also a result of the environment in which an organ lives in, like a fish lives in water and outside of water a fish's life span is shorten.
    Whatever we are eating and whatever enviroment we eat in will determine our life's condition and existence, whether it be naturally or spiritually.
    Keep up the good work.

    Love Dad :)
