what I eat in a day

What I eat in a day – Dublin day 5

Three more sleeps! I’m glad I have these videos to work on just to keep my mind off how EXCITED I am to be returning to Scotland in a few days.

I hope this video and my Cronometer food diary (posted below) can serve as a guide if you are interested in veganism. This will give you some idea about what meals are like.

When looking at my food diary, keep in mind:

  • My calorie intake is never set in stone. If I feel like I need to eat more, I simply eat more and never restrict calories.
  • My macronutrient ratio is set to LFRV (low fat raw vegan) within Cronometer. My calorie summary reflects percentages based on the 80/10/10 ratio. I aim to eat at least 80% of my calories from carbs, at most 10% from protein and at most 10% from fat.
  • Walking is my only form of exercise. My daily average is 4.9 miles.

My meals:

  • Breakfast: oatmeal made with oat milk topped with sliced bananas
  • Lunch: grapes and two oranges
  • Dinner: three gluten-free hummus wraps

My macronutrient ratio:

  • 79.3% of my calories came from carbohydrates
  • 9.4% from protein
  • 11.3% from fat

The best part of today (besides the sunshine) had to be the oranges. They were so sweet and juicy! I need to eat more citrus fruits because I miss them. My diet has been all over the place lately, but come this Saturday I’ll be back at home in Scotland. I’m SO PUMPED to be back with my boyfriend and cooking in our own kitchen again! I expect I’ll eat less hummus and more potatoes with steamed veggies since that’s ‘business as usual’ for him. He likes to cook our meals so I’m happy to eat whatever he prepares for us. 🙂

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.
