Can I get a round of applause, please? Because I finally managed to film the video that I’ve been promising you for ages. MY FOOD DIARY! I don’t know what it is about these videos but honestly, they’re one my favourites to read/watch too.
My Food Diary | Vegan & Healthy Food
As it’s the end of September and I’m about to go back to university in a few days, I’m currently in the middle of trying to get back into a good routine. Summer always screws with everything that I’ve established in the other 9 months of the year. My morning routine, my sleep schedule, my healthy diet…. But I’m working on getting back into the healthy schedule. So that is why this food diary features mostly healthy and vegan dishes.
I’m not a vegan but I’m not big on meat and despise preparing it at home. So we usually eat mostly vegetarian meals when we cook at home – when we’re going out I never say no to a good ol’ burger, though. YOLO, right?! I already said this on Snapchat but usually, my day isn’t so structured as it appears in the video. I love to snack in-between meals and tend to eat a lot of snacks during the day. This day, however, was rather busy and as we’ve just been grocery shopping I managed to film a really good and structured day.
BREAKFAST | Soy Cappuccino
During the week, I get up around 8 a.m. and make myself a big glass of water and a cup of soy cappuccino. I used to be a big fan of breakfast but ever since I’m following the intuitive eating principle I stopped forcing myself to eat when I’m not hungry just because everyone else does. That is why in this food diary you’re not seeing any breakfast. I simply don’t like eating much right after getting up during the week. On Sundays, I do love me a big brunch but that doesn’t start until 10 so it’s okay! Anyone else not the biggest breakfast fan?
LUNCH | Oven baked veggies with Salad
This day, lunch was a big plate of oven baked sweet potatoes and carrots with fresh field salad – one of my all-time favourite meals. It’s so easy and quick to prepare, costs next to nothing and tastes heavenly. The salad I made simply consists of cucumber, tomatoes, field salad, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Easy as that but SO good!
For the oven baked veggies simply slice your vegetables/potatoes and put them onto a baking tray. Season with herbs, salt, pepper and olive oil. I used olive oil that my mum fancied up with rosemary and chilli. After that simply put your veggies into the oven for about 20 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius. During the last 5 minutes, add some pine nuts. YUM!
DINNER | Bruschetta
The Dinner you can see in the food diary video is something the mister and I very often make at home. It’s so easy to whip up and tastes like summer-vacation in Italy. Yup, I’m talking Bruschetta. Simply dice some tomatoes, season them with herbs, olive oil and garlic and put them onto toasted slices of Ciabatta. So easy – so good! Of course, we enjoyed a glass (or two) of wine while eating these in front of the TV. Dinner doesn’t get any better than this is, if you ask me :)
