what I eat in a day

What I eat in a day – Friday.

I will continue these Cronometer food diary posts for a week. At the end of the week, I’ll provide a summary of everything I’ve eaten, rough cost estimate, and food preparation tips.

This post contains my food diary entry from Friday.

In case you haven’t noticed, I love grapes!

It looks like protein will never be a problem for me. Two bunches of broccoli have as much protein as 5 packs of grapes. Fruits and veggies have all the protein you need.

It’s interesting to see that I’m still consuming plenty of fat in my diet even though I avoid fatty foods like oil, nuts, and avocado. This lifestyle isn’t completely fat-free as fruits and veggies contain small amounts of fat and all these small amounts add up at the end of the day. Most of my fat intake came from grapes and broccoli, which happen to be some of my favourite foods. I can’t survive without them!

As a high carb low fat vegan, I aim to eat less than 10% of my daily calories from fat. Since I started tracking my food intake this week, I’ve learned that I eat between 2-3% of my daily calories from fat.

Do you track calories or nutritional information? What have you learned?

In Oct. 2014, I quit my job and started downsizing my life by selling and rehoming all my belongings. Even though I’ve moved around all my life, I officially left the States in Dec. 2015 and have been travelling abroad ever since. I hope to inspire you to simplify your life so you live with intention. I’m an avid writer, videography enthusiast, and a major foodie with a passion for sustainable living.
