What I Eat In A Day #9

I’m back with another what I eat in a day post.  These types of posts were very helpful to me as I was transitioning to intuitive eating, after years of dieting. They were great because they helped me to remove the diet culture blinders that told me that every meal needed to be perfect and completely “healthy” or I was doing something wrong. Diet culture really brainwashes us and causes us to think that eating has to be one way, but when I became an intuitive eater I learned that just the opposite was true. Becoming an intuitive eater was the best thing that I could have ever done.  If you are new to intuitive eating and looking to see what a day of intuitive eating looks like, I hope you enjoy this post.

This post has a couple of links to foods that I ate, just in case you want to try them for yourself. I purchased all of the foods that I ate this day with my own money.

What I Eat In A Day

Morning coffee:

If you’ve seen any of my other what I eat in a day posts, then you know that I have coffee every single morning. I make it the same way with my homemade creamer and agave. On this morning, in particular, the creamer was freshly made so it frothed really well.


Before breakfast, I mixed two scoops of collagen with a little bit of water. I like to try and get my collagen in before breakfast, if I’m not having a smoothie, so I don’t forget to take it.


This is the same breakfast that I had in my last what I eat in a day post. I’ve been loving this combination lately! Again, I used the oatmeal base from my Creamy Blueberry Oatmeal recipe. I topped my oatmeal with stewed berries and almond butter. My favorite almond butter is the one that I showed in my healthy food staples Costco haul.

This oatmeal keeps me full for a little while and it tastes so good. Sometimes I will even make it the night before and store it in the fridge, if I know that I won’t have much time in the morning. The oatmeal tastes the best freshly made, but it’s still good if you make it in advance too. If you haven’t tried it, you really should.


For lunch, I had some leftover shrimp scampi that I bought from the grocery store. I put the shrimp on a bed of brown rice. I also had some leftover roasted brussels sprouts, that I wanted to use up, so I added those too and topped them with sriracha.

Because I wasn’t super satisfied after having the shrimp, rice, and brussels sprouts, I decided to round out the meal with some chocolate chip oatmeal bites. I showed these bites in my most recent Costco haul. The chocolate chip bites were so good and I ended up being satisfied with my lunch overall after having them.

When I first started eating intuitively, I thought that I had to LOVE each and every meal that I ate. If it wasn’t a 10/10, as far as taste was concerned, and I wasn’t super excited to eat it, I thought that I was doing something wrong. I eventually found out that this is not the case, nor is it very practical. We can only do the best that we can and I think this is a good example of making it work with what you have.


A few hours after lunch, I was hungry again so I decided to have an orange.


For dinner, I was in the mood for some meatballs. I actually have never cooked meatballs for dinner, unless we were having them on top of spaghetti. This was something different and it was really good. I made the meatballs out of ground chicken and baked them in the oven. I tossed them in a quick spicy sauce that I made.

On the side, we had rice noodles tossed in olive oil with some seasonings. I then added some shredded cheese, which was a mix of parmesan and mozzarella. I chopped up a little broccoli and added that in too. This was a great dinner.  I’ll definitely be making it again.

Along with dinner, I had a really simple salad that I made with spinach and bell peppers that we had chopped in the fridge. On my salad, I put some herb ranch. Although this dressing doesn’t actually taste like ranch to me, it does taste really good. We’ve been buying if for a while and really like it.


Pretty much right after dinner, I wanted dessert. I had a piece of red velvet cake that I pulled out of the freezer.


That was everything that I ate! You know… the great thing about eating intuitively is that it gives us the ability to eat what we want, when we want it, without guilt or shame. I’m so glad that I made the switch. Have you started eating intuitively yet, or are you still on the fence?
