{What I Eat Vegan Wednesdays} 22 July 2015

Today has been significantly cold in Cape Town – and usually when the winter storm sweeps in, I tend to grab warm and comforting meals instead of following my Rawtill4 regime. I am delighted and proud to say that, except for coffee and hot herbal tea, I followed my diet faultlessly. Strict Rawtill4 vegans might not agree with my daily cuppa, but it is something that I love and not willing to cut out of my daily intake as of yet. Eating raw truly does fight fatigue – especially in winter – and so I will continue to try and incorporate at least two raw meals a day. So without further ado, herewith what I ate today.

What I Eat Vegan Wednesdays :: 22 July 2015

Breakfast: Vanilla oatmeal smoothie (about 600ml) and 1 small banana

To make the smoothie, blend 500ml water, 1/2 cup raw rolled oats, 3 frozen bananas, 6 dried pitted dates, 1 teaspoon chia seeds and a dash of vanilla extract in a high speed blender until ultra smooth

At the end of the day I consumed a total of 1520 calories which is perfect as I burned 1626 calories. I have started walking/jogging for 30 minutes a day to start getting fit again after being sick (and lazy) for a while. The daily fresh (icy cold) air does wonders for your energy levels and mood. Today, however, I got home a bit too late from work and so I couldn’t go. I still use my UP Jawbone to track my daily sleep and activity levels, but I prefer using Cronometer to monitor my food intake as you can set your goal to 801010 which Cronometer tracks effectively. You are also able to submit additional food items that you cannot find on their system, ensuring that each and every gram of protein, vitamins and minerals are taken to account.

My meals today led to a fantastic final score of 82% carbs / 10 % fats and 8 % protein!
