Sandwich

Breakfast + Lunch + Dinner

I haven’t always had a great relationship with food. When I was younger, I used to only eat out of one of those divider plates- nothing could touch. Throughout my teenage years, I struggled with loving myself. The anger that that caused was channeled into a hatred for food. Over the past couple years, our relationship has drastically improved, and I’m extremely grateful for that because as it turns out, I love food.

I eat a mostly vegetarian/vegan diet, but due to my past, I’ve stopped labeling myself. I feed my body what it wants, when it wants, making sure to get my energy from local, organic sources when possible. During the colder months, I incorporate more carbs because I find it keeps me warmer throughout the day, so here’s a day’s worth of food + the ingredients I used!

 

Breakfast

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I can’t live without it- if I skip breakfast, watch out. I’ll bite your head off by 10:30 a.m.
