I got so many requests to do a blog post about What I eat in a Day and I actually was not sure if I should post this because I personally think that it can be very misconceiving. I  always make sure to eat: A lot of plant based foods, foods that respond well with my body and enough foods to reach my goals. I do not count my calories or track my macros! Since I am trying to put on weight I eat as much and often as I can while choosing mainly healthy options.

Now what works well for my body might not work well for yours, therefore I would always recommend you to find out what works best for you instead. The most misconceiving part is to think if you eat what I eat,  you will look like I do, which is nonsense because there are so much more things to take into account like genetics, training, metabolism and so on.

Now that we cleared this out of the way, I just wanted to let you know that I always make sure to have protein, carbs and fats in every single meal. This supports the absorption of nutrients, adding fats in every meal helps you to stay satiated, and it helps me personally to get in a good balance of all macros at the end of the day. Today I ate 4 smaller meals and one large meal and this could vary from day to day depending on what I am doing that day. My body responds better to many smaller meals rather than 3 big ones, it keeps me more satiated and I avoid to get in the sate where I get reeeaally hungry and start snacking on crap. But this is just a personal preference.

Meal 1:

  • Oatmeal
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • Organic peanut butter
  • Strawberries
  • Cinammon

Meal 2:

  • Green smoothie bowl (recipe will be up soon)
  • Topped with Goji berries and Pumpkin Seeds

Meal 3: (Biggest meal)

  • Quinoa
  • Shrimps
  • Avocado
  • A ton of veggies and greens

Meal 4:

  • 2 eggs scrambled with spinach and mushrooms
  • 2 Corn Cakes with avocado, dried tomatoes and pumpkin seeds

Meal 5:

  • Half a whole wheat bread
  • 1 can of tuna
  • Avocado and tomato

I hope you liked this post, talk soon!

Love, Chiara

    What are your favorite vegetables — and what are your favorite on the go snacks? I’ve been vegan for abound 10 months now, but a lot of times I struggle with bringing snacks for later in the day if I’m running errands or I know I will be busy because most of the snacks I enjoy are things that should be refrigerated. Do you have any tips or advice for that?
    P.S. love your instagram && so happy to have found out you have a blog! Thank you for inspiring!

    • Hey Kyndall, I am so glad you like my blog! I love all kind of vegetables and they are also one of my favourite snacks. My favourite snacks are carrots, red bell peppers, corn cakes with avocado, almonds, pumpkin seeds, corn cakes with peanut butter, homemade hummus etc. and these are all vegan 🙂 Kisses

  2. Hi! I just wanted to say that I really like reading your blog. I feel as though you are really honest and sincere with everything you write here and post on Instagram. I was in Barcelona in February and I walked right past you. You’re really tiny and of course very beautiful! 🙂 But my question is – do you also drink alcohol? If yes, how often and what do you eat/drink when having a hangover and how do you motivate yourself to stay away from unhealthy foods during a partyevening or during hangover?

      Hey Alice! Thanks so much for your kind words, it means a lot to me and its such a coincidence that you walked passed me, next time you should say hi 🙂 I drink alcohol once in a while but I do not like the taste of it so much. When I go out I usually have a drink or two and never really drink so much that I feel hungover. Since I am never really hungover I guess I also don’t really have the hangover cravings. When I go out for dinner and have a nice evening with friends I am note super strict with my diet but allow myself to enjoy the good food. Kisses

  3. Liebe Chiara,
    ich bin so happy deinen Blog gefunden zu haben. Du hast genau die gleiche Ernährungsweise, wie ich sie habe 🙂 Isst du auch kein Fleisch, sondern nur Fisch? Und hast du ein Rezept für selbstgemachten Hummus ohne zu viel Öl? Mach weiter so, du bist eine grpße Inspiration und ich freue mich auf weitere Blogbeiträge 🙂
    Liebe Grüße,
    Mandy

      Hey Mandy, freut mich total das dir mein Blog gefällt! Ja genau, ich esse Fisch aber kein Fleisch. Ich kann gerne demnächst ein Rezept für ein gesunden Hummus posten, wenn du Hummus selber machst kannst du ja kontrollieren wie viel Öl du benutzen willst. Liebe Grüße, Chiara
