What I eat in a day

Updated: Jul 15, 2022

What do I eat in a day? I’m asked this question all the time, and the answer is that most days I eat very simply (often just potatoes and vegetables, or rice and beans), but I also do some prepping ahead and batch cooking so that I can have a little extra variety from day to day.

My preference on most mornings is for savory rather than sweet, so I usually start the day with green vegetables, like roasted brussels sprouts, or sautéed power greens with shallots. On mornings when I’m shorter on time, I might just warm leftover mashed potatoes and add it over a toasted Ezekiel muffin with a little hummus and mustard. But when I have a little more time, I like something like:
