What A Dietitian Eats in a Day {Eating without Restrictions}

After documenting a full day of eating on Sunday, I realized I had eaten completely vegetarian and without any food restrictions and wanted to showcase how I do it!  I consumed a lot of whole foods, a huge variety of veggies and fruits, plant-based protein powders, and just plain delicious things (plus cookies). Read on to see!thumb_IMG_8929_1024

breakfast// 1 huge Pumpkin Oatmeal waffle topped with creamy almond butter, banana slices and fresh organic raspberries. Recipe can be found here.


lunch//One egg + 4 egg white sautéed red onion omelette (yes I eat the FULL EGG), mashed avocado, roasted kabocha squash in pink salt + coconut oil, and took my almost-gone-bad shredded zucchini that I use for oats and steamed it with some Brussels-SO good!!



preworkout snack//Ezekiel toast, almond butter, apple slices, and a tiny bit of raw honey (Hi, Gus!!) plus a Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter cookie (full review here)


postworkout dinner//Whole Foods salad bar with kale, greens, spinach, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, roasted squash and carrots, balsamic tempeh, and feta cheese with Bragg’s liquid aminos as dressing! I didn’t use typical dressing as I knew the feta had fat and didn’t need a ton of fat post-workout.


night snack//Roasted kabocha dipped in about 2 Tbsp almond butter.

Flexible dieting, eating without restrictions, and transitioning to intuitive eating (while still reading labels and being mindful of macros and ingredients) has been life-changing  because
I can now eat ONE cookie butter cookie and not need anymore. And can dine out for dinner and not stress. And eyeball nut butter and know my intake will even out.

How do you eat without restrictions?

    Hello! I am so glad I stumbled across your Instagram page and then your website. I am 3 months postpartum and exclusively breastfeeding and was wondering if you feel like your way of eating would be healthy for someone like me? I gained a lot of weight while pregnant and have been struggling to lose while breastfeeding. Anyways, thank you for your input and I really enjoy your blog/instagram!!!

      Of course! My way of eating and what I recommend to clients is balanced and based on science. I typically only work with clients after breastfeeding so please email me to get started :)
