One of my favourite perks about working from home is the fact that I get to make my own meals. I enjoy to cook, so this is something that I certainly enjoy doing. With that in mind, I decided to share what I eat in a day when I’m working from home.
Please note that I don’t necessarily eat the same thing every single day. I also don’t eat this healthy every day. This is just to give you an idea as to the food and meals I like to make and eat.
Black coffee and 40 oz ice cold water
After making up and completing my morning skincare routine, I always proceed to make a black coffee. I cannot start my day without it- sounds lame, but it’s true! I also drink ice cold water from the 40-ounce water bottle seen here. It helps me stay hydrated, and I try to consume it all before the morning ends. Once it’s empty, I switch to my 17-ounce water bottle for the rest of the day. I usually drink at least two of those in a day.
PB & B egg white oatmeal
This is my favourite breakfast to make, without a doubt! I’ve already shared how to make this meal before, which you can check out here. It takes a little more time than a regular bowl of oatmeal, but it’s super tasty and filling.
Vegan sandwich with sweet potato fries
I’ve recently gotten into the habit of making sandwiches for lunch. It’s simple, easy, and filling as well. This particular sandwich is made up of:
- Two slices of light rye bread
- Three slices of pan-fried tempeh
- A few leaves of organic baby spinach
- Salt and pepper to taste
I paired the sandwich with sweet potato fries by McCain’s, which were leftover from the previous night. I’m a big fan of sweet potatoes, so it’s the perfect side dish.
Red bell pepper and hummus
Some days, I can get by with a second cup of coffee to tide me over between lunch and dinner for both energy and hunger. But on this day, I needed something with more substance. So, I chopped up one red bell pepper and paired it with some more hummus. It was super easy and super good!
I’ll be honest- I’m pretty sick of eating salads. But they’re a great way to use up leftovers and produce that’s been lingering in your fridge. On this particular day, I was merely trying to use up a few food items that had sat for a little longer than they should’ve. The end result was far tastier than I had anticipated. This salad contained:
- One cup of green kale
- 1/2 cup of organic baby spinach
- 1/2 baked chicken breast
- 100 grams roasted sweet potatoes
- 100 grams sautéed broccoli
- Salt and pepper to taste
There you go! Perhaps this will give you some meal inspiration. Of course, if you have any healthy meal ideas, please don’t hesitate to send them my way! Maybe I’ll even use one or two for myself!
