What I eat in a day || hclf


So seen as September is often known as the 'month of new beginnings' I decided to include a bit of a more lifestyle post as opposed to the usual 'outfit of the day' kind of posts. Recently I switched up my diet completely.I try to maintain a high carb low fat diet. It's been a gradual process but for the last 2 months I've gone fully vegan, prior to this I had gotten rid of meat and dairy,milk in particular since January. This whole change was mainly for skin reasons but also because I came to realise that there is no need to drink it, any nutrients that are in it can be gotten from another, more natural source. Considering it's not natural for us to drink it and also considering that we're the only species who drinks the milk of another, which is bizarre if you think about it.. But that's another story, I may end up doing a more detailed post on this lifestyle but for now I'll just include these photos of a typical day for me! 

Each day I drink a litre of water before having breakfast mainly because I'm pretty thirsty! Occasionally I put lemon in it but not always. Regardless my aim each day is to drink at least 3 litres of water! After chugging this back I usually go for a 45 minute run, on and off of course! 

Smoothie bowls are my new favourite thing. They're super filling and will curb any sweet tooth for sure! This one has 5 bananas and a bunch of frozen mango blended with coconut milk with nectarines and chia seeds to top. 5 bananas might seem like a lot but when they're blended you don't notice and this is just how many it takes for me to feel full and satisfied. One of the best things about 
this lifestyle is that you can eat as much as you like! 

Baked potato salad with sweet chilly sauce. I had 2 apples and a pear alongside this too! 

Veggie stir fry is one of my faves. I added sweet chilli sauce to this too along with lots of spices and rice noodles.

Till next time!
