Confession: I haven’t hardcore worked out in a gym in at least 🙈🤔 5 good years.
This body is fully sustained from walking & biking + eating a predominantly plant-based diet with occasional fish and seafood. And I’m getting ready to cut out the latter.
Of course people are always super-concerned about protein intake as a vegetarian. So, I made a quick video to talk about what I typically eat to make sure I'm getting my share.
Typical Stuff I Like & Eat
Nuts (particularly peanuts and cashews)
Steel Cut Oats
Gimme Lean Veggie Sausage
Morning Star Veggie Bacon
Bonus sources that I haven’t tried
Additionally, there are about 10 things that I consistently buy or have on hand that are the fundamentals in my diet.
Dark leafy greens
Whole grain breads
I usually have fruit, tea & water soon after waking. Then I’ll have my heaviest meal around lunch, or as I like to call it, 2nd breakfast. Dinner is typically light— salad or rice & veggies. Sounds boring, but I just have a rotation of foods that I like and work for me.
Of course I like to mix in some fish tacos, enchiladas, or a platter of crab and garlic noodles, baked mac & cheese, grits, bbq salmon, yams, veggie burger with fries & a milkshake, shrimp Alfredo, pizza & michelada, margaritas, yellow cake with chocolate icing, peach cobbler, red wine, VODKA, all the good sh*t. But that’s not functional for everyday consumption.
My regular days consist primarily of avocado toast with eggs, a green juice or smoothie, Yerba mate, stir fry with rice, and salad. Rinse & repeat some variation.
