Morning Fuel: Vegan Superfood Chocolate Oatmeal
It’s snowy and cold out, so I needed something more grounding this morning. This Vegan Superfood Chocolate Oatmeal is easy to make and only involves one pot and 4 major ingredients. And it’s gluten-free and vegan, so I know it won’t follow with a tummy ache or tiredness. After breakfast I went for a quick walk (aka my destresser, if you’ve read these posts before!) and then straight to recipe development.
Lunch: Macro Plate and Seaweed Salad
Since I woke up on the later side today I didn’t need a snack in between breakfast and lunch. I’ve been on a macrobiotic kick lately and find that I feel so much more energized and grounded eating this way. Macrobiotic supports clean carbohydrates as the base of the meal with an emphasis on steamed vegetables and pure, unprocessed foods. Here is my macro plate with black beans, steamed kabocha squash, carrots, kale, broccoli, and seaweed. I top it with dijon mustard and miso tahini dressing.
Snack: Grapefruit, Apple, and Watermelon with KeVita Probiotic Drink
Dinner: Zuma NYC
Dinner was at the new hotspot, Zuma, in New York. I’m a big fan of the one in Miami, so only naturally had to check this one out. I shared an edamame, watercress and avocado salad, and yellowtail sashimi with ponzu and toasted garlic. For the main I had a salmon avocado roll. Everything was done to perfection and the watercress and avocado salad might just be the best salad I’ve ever had. Sharing is key to eating out and watching your intake. Stay away from tempura or anything crispy at a Japanese restaurant and go for the clean options eating mindfully and, most importantly, paying attention to your company.
