What I Eat in a Day: Green Smoothie Edition

There’s no rule that says every meal has to be served on a plate. Yes, you should sit down and consciously enjoy every bite. After all, that’s the easiest way to prevent overeating. But sometimes, you aren’t in the mood to eat anything. When hunger doesn’t strike, sip on a simple, nutrient-dense smoothie. You’ll feel fueled without the fullness – win-win!


My new favorite way to start the day is with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Steel Cut Oats. Here, I topped my bowl of oats with cinnamon powder, blueberries, strawberries and pear chunks. It keeps me full for hours!


I baked cod fish with olive oil and fresh garlic, and then paired this healthy protein with roasted red potatoes and red peppers. The flavors are much tastier than they appear on this plate – I swear!

Afternoon snack:

Along with my must-have glass of water, I’m snacking on a cup of grapes and strawberries. Fresh fruit is the best way to curb sweet cravings!


My day started later than usual, so I wasn’t starving for dinner. A green smoothie and a delicious KIND Nuts & Spices Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond bar was just enough. It’s a small but very balanced “meal.” To make my smoothie so wholesome and satisfying, I not only added organic mixed greens, but blended in whole fruit with Nutiva Organic Black Chia Seeds and Silk Original Almond Milk.
