Considering the amount of whole grains, vegetables, fruit and beans I consume in a day, I’m pretty sure I have no trouble getting in the USDA’s recommended daily fiber goals…usually by breakfast.
Okay, maybe not by breakfast, but definitely after lunch. I love me some fiber. And gosh, does it keep you full. Somedays I definitely crave more processed foods, but on average I eat a whole food, plant based diet chock full of fiber. For me, fiber is amazing because it keeps me regular (if you know what I mean) and full for longer periods of time so I can get on with my day.
I realized that this day of meals was snack-less, meaning that all my fiber-filled-meals kept me full from one meal to the next.
After my first longer run in ages with some Chinese friends, I came home and made Chocolate Zoats topped with banana, peanut butter, strawberry sauce, cacao nibs and granola. Yum!
Lunch came together in a flash after doing a bunch of meal prep (AKA roasting all the vegetables). I ate roasted eggplant, carrot, and cauliflower with chickpeas and steamed baby sweet potatoes. Everything was topped off with my absolute favorite condiment: Low-Fat Peanut Sauce. Seriously, this satay sauce make me want to eat all the veggies!
Sorry about the photo (does anyone else’s camera do this when you’re trying to input photos onto your computer?)! Dinner was a baked purple sweet potato topped with Okara (Soy Milk Pulp) Hummus with sides of the juiciest pineapple and steamed broccoli.
