NUTRITIONIST’S WHAT I EAT IN A DAY | Healthy Plant-Based Meal Ideas + Recipes


Are you new to eating plant-based? Have
you ever wondered what a plant-based daily diet might look like? In this video
we’ll be looking at a nutritionists example of a daily plant-based menu. For optimal health, it’s best to eat a predominantly whole food plant-based
diet with few minimally processed foods. This means limiting or avoiding oils,
white flour, sugar, salt, and other refined products, as well as heavily processed
foods. We recommend consuming a wide variety of vegetables, especially leafy
greens, fruits, especially berries, legumes, mushrooms, gluten free whole grains, nuts,
seeds, herbs, spices, and fermented foods such as kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, miso,
and natto. However, when consuming soy products it’s
best to purchase them organic or non-gmo. As each of us is unique, a plant-based
diet can vary from person to person. We all have different preferences and may
react differently to certain foods. For this reason, we recommend that you keep
track of your diet and health and find out what foods work best for you. You can
use our free “Diet & Lifestyle Tracker”, a 5-day journal to track your diet and
health, which we’ve linked in the description below. Let’s look at examples
of what a day of eating plant-based might look like, including breakfast,
lunch, dinner, desserts, snacks, and beverages. Breakfast. There are many
choices both sweet and savory when it comes to plant-based breakfasts.
It could be oatmeal with berries plus nuts and seeds, a smoothie or smoothie
bowl, chia pudding with fruits of choice, gluten-free banana pancakes, a breakfast
burrito, or a quick chickpea omelet with an assortment of veggies. Lunch. Easy and
healthy plant-based lunches can include energy bowls with a whole-grain, for
example quinoa, and steamed veggies such as bok choy, broccoli, edamame, carrots, and
sauteed mushrooms topped with hoisin sauce and green onions, a large green
salad with chopped veggies topped with beans or lentils and avocado dressing, or
a sandwich or wrap filled with a tasty chickpea sandwich spread. Dinner. For
dinner, some delicious plant-based meal ideas are Asian noodle soup, three bean
veggie chili with gluten-free jalapeno cornbread muffins, mushrooms spinach
chickpea curry served with wild rice, or pesto pasta with a mixed side salad.
Desserts and snacks. Some healthy dessert options include chocolate avocado
pudding, quick energy bites, berry parfait, and gluten-free muffins. Or for a savory
snack try homemade hummus and veggies, celery sticks with nut butter, kale chips,
or air-popped popcorn. Alternatively, you could opt for a piece of fresh fruit.
Beverages. It’s important to always stay hydrated. In addition to plain water,
other beverage choices may include healthy smoothies, infused water, herbal
or green teas, or homemade vegetable juices. You can find most of these yummy
recipes and many more on our website at replenishhealth.net/recipes Remember to eat plenty of leafy greens
daily and drink enough water to stay hydrated. When transitioning to a whole
food plant-based diet, listen to your body and transition at your own pace.
Keep in mind that going plant-based is not just a diet, it’s a lifestyle change
that will help improve your overall health and well-being, supports the
welfare of animals, and reduces environmental impact from animal
agriculture. If you are transitioning to a plant-based diet, Grab a free copy of
