What I ate on a warm summer Friday

Healthy nutrient dense recipes

Here's a full day of eating on a hot Friday in August. The tacos make it to the dinner table regularly year-round and I know you'll savor them too! Find all the ingredients and video below. 

Whether it's the time of day, the quantity, or the ingredients I choose, I eat intuitively while being mindful of my food sources. As realistically as possible, I follow a whole food plant based diet with the aim to eat as much variety as I can in each food category and as many colors of produce as I can throughout every day following my hunger cues. 

The Menu:

07:00 AM - Oat Milk Latte x2

Espresso and full fat oat milk.

10:20 AM - Strawberry Hemp Toast x2

Whole grain and seed bread, plant butter, hemp seeds, and strawberries.

01:30 PM - Nectarine, Golden Kiwi, Cherries

03:20 PM - Chocolate Chia Protein Smoothie

Kale, banana, coconut water, chia seeds, Nuzest Pea Protein Powder - Chocolate (Amazon), and ice. 

08:30 PM - Margarita

Pre-made spicy margarita by On The Rocks premium cocktails.  

09:30 PM - Spicy Black Bean Tacos x3

Spicy Black Beans: In a crock pot or dutch oven sauté a half onion chopped and 6 cloves of garlic minced in 1/4 cup+ olive oil for a few minutes. Add 1 lb black beans (pre-soaked overnight), then add 2 cups vegetable broth, 6 cups water, 2 bay leaves, 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin, and red cayenne to taste. Halfway through cooking, add salt to taste (we do 3 tsp). *We used our old crock pot, so it takes 12-14 hours on high till beans are tender. Can be cooked in about 2 hours in a dutch oven on the stove top. Canned beans work too!

Cauliflower Walnut Meat: Follow the recipe from brandnewvegan.com

Toppings: corn, broccoli slaw (trader joes), tomatoes, red onion, jalapeño, cilantro, lime, vegan mayo, and hot sauce.

Wrapped in: tortillas.

10:00 PM - Vegan Mini Ice Cream Cones x3 

Hold the Dairy! Mini coconut non-dairy frozen dessert cones - Chocolate (Trader Joes).
