WHAT I EAT IN A DAY: A MEATLESS OPTION & HEALTHY CARBS

VEGETARIAN RECIPES

Hey guys!! I have a quick announcement, I am celebrating 2 years of healthybymleee.com!!! Thank you ALL, for your love and comments over the past 2 years!!! Change and a giveaway is coming to this blog, stay tune.

Eating the right foods can be a pain sometimes. Especially, when you are the only one in your home that wants to eat nutritious and plant base.

 It’s been 3 years since I started my health journey. One of the lessons I learned is that the way I feel, is more important than how I look. For example, not feeling bloated after every other meal, the feeling of constant unhealthy cravings and the feeling of over eating.

Let’s strive to have the feeling of becoming more conscious of the state of our well-being. Feel empower to take control of the one thing we can control in life and that’s our diet. Lets treat our bodies like a temple.

Feed your body with foods from the earth and try your best to eliminate processed foods. It’s a constant struggle BUT small steps are the starting point to successfully achieving your ultimate wellness and nutrition goals.

When I am in full control of my diet, meaning my mind and body is one. I usually eat less meat, no processed foods and only healthy carbs. So here is one of my delicious, colorful, nutritious, packed with fiber dish that I created.

You will need:

  1. 2 potatoes (depends on how many people you are cooking for)
  2. 1 bag of long carrots 
  3. 2 cups of raw spinach 
  4. 1/2 avocado 
  5. hummus (any flavor)
  6. Red crush peppers 
  7. Dry basil
  8. 1/2 Lemon
  9. Sea salt 
  10. Paprika

Frist, boil the carrots for 10 minutes.

Second, take your sweet potato and cut it down the middle. Then use a fork and put little holes through the potato. This will let the heat cook it faster. Add olive oil, sea salt, and paprika to the potatoes. Place the potatoes on a pan and put it to bake in the oven for 35 minutes. Turn or flip the potatoes every 15 minutes (front to back).

Third, drain the water from the carrots and add 2 table-spoon of olive oil, basil, half of lemon and sea salt. Cook for 5 minutes, stir as needed.

  1. Get your dish/bowl and add 2 cups of raw spinach, with the dressing of your choice and a half of avocado, the baked potatoes, and the sautéed carrots and 2-3 scoops of hummus.

    Is this recipe for lunch or dinner?

    I agree with you, processed food is not healthy. I myself felt guilty everytime I ate processed food. However I still do it sometimes. Pity me.

    What about rice? I eat white rice for every meal 3x a day. Is it a healthy carb? Thanks.

      I have this vegan recipe for lunch or dinner. It’s up to you and what you prefer.
      Everything in moderation especially, if you have a hard time giving up processed foods. I am guilt of it as well but I am very mindful of how often i eat it. I choose to eat proceed foods and that maybe 2 times a month. Once processed foods are not a part of your everyday diet, you are doing just fine.
      White rice is not a healthy carb but it’s not horrible either. Just an example, try to have quinoa or sweet potatoes a few times a week and less white rice. You do not have to totally give up white rice. I eat white rice once a month. There are so many options out there instead of white rice and you will still feel full. I can do a post on what to replace white rice with, if you like.

      Hi Nicole!
      It’s nice to see that you are craving veggies. I don’t see that often.
      Eating healthy doesn’t have to be too expensive. Find a local market and shop there. There are always weekly sales at markets as well! Food prep is something you can do to help you cut cost. Let me know if you want me to do a blog post on eating healthy on a budget?

    I always struggle because I am the only one on the family who voluntarily eats healthy. This looks great! I’ll need to try it.
