What I Eat in a Day!
Happy New Year, Kinfoke! I've gotten a lot of questions about what I typically eat in a day. Today I'm going to show you what a typical day's food is like and some tips on how to make it.
I start every morning with fresh squeezed lemon and lime juice. One whole lemon and one whole lime added to 32 ounces of filtered water.
After I drink my water, I wait about 30 minutes to an hour. Usually during this time I do a workout at home that consists of resistance and body weight training.
Celery juice may be my favorite part of the day! It wakes up my insides and helps cool and calm my liver and nerves. It's just celery, nothing else!

Midmorning after my water, workout, and celery, I have a light breakfast of fruit. An apple and banana is excellent. Sometimes I cut my apple into pieces and dust it with cinnamon and pumpkin spice blend.
If you're really feeling creative, cut the apples, add fruit dip, coconut shreds, banana slices, and blueberries for a little fruit pizza.
We made the fruit dip by mixing hemp butter (or any nut or seed butter) with coconut water to make it thin along with maple syrup. Mix until it's a good spreadable consistency.
Add and eat as many fruits as you like! Oranges, blueberries, strawberries. Whatever fruits you like best, eat them. They are hydrating and add the essential glucose you need to keep your brain happy.
Sometimes I need a little pick me up before lunch, just a savory, crunchy snack to tie me over until my meal. That's where these Popadelics really help! I grab a few of these crunchy flavored mushrooms and enjoy a little snack before lunch.
Because of my schedule and from listening to my body, I've learned that it's best for me to wait and have lunch until around 2:00 PM. Most days this time of year, that lunch choice is soup! I love a good soup!
For this particular soup, I added:
I put them all in the Instant Pot with water, salt, and pepper, put it on the soup setting and within thirty minutes, we have hot homemade soup.

Hydration is key, so I make sure that if I haven't been diligent about my water intake, I pause in the afternoon and repeat my morning water routine!
Around 6:00 PM, Sara Beth and I usually sit down for dinner. Most nights we like to enjoy salad with our homemade dressing.
Every week I make a huge salad and then we add the toppings that each of us like. SB likes cucumbers and tomatoes, and we both like to add nuts, seeds, and seasonings for an extra crunch and kick!

Now Kinfoke, I've got quite the sweet tooth and every night I used to enjoy a little sweet treat before bed. I've found the perfect snack that tastes like Mother Nature's very own Snickers! Dates! We love medjool dates. They're great on their own or with other fruit!
Make sure you don't break a tooth! You have to remove the pits and part that attach to the stem. If you haven't tried a date yet, try one! You may love them!
Here's just an idea of what I typically eat in a day. Most days I also have a smoothie, but this particular day I didn't. Be sure to have variety and mix it up so your body gets what it needs and so that you feel fed (not full).
