About a year ago, I did a post called “What I Eat.” It was pretty popular as I think people are curious what a nutritionist really eats, so I thought I’d do an updated version. I most definitely don’t profess to eat perfectly – more 80/20 I’d say, but eating this way makes me feel good.

I also thought this food diary would be useful in anticipation of The HEAL 30 Day Wellness Challenge, so that you have a general idea of what the meals might be like. Unfortunately red wine isn’t a part of the meal plan though!


  • 1 giant glass of lemon water (approx 500ml)
  • 1 slice of my Mom’s gluten free bread with 2 poached eggs* (I must post this recipe for you, because it’s BY FAR the best gluten-free bread I’ve ever had)

*I’d normally have a morning snack between breakfast and lunch, but this breakfast is so filling that I’m not.


  • Roasted cauliflower (recipe will be a part of the Wellness Challenge meal plan)
  • Miso chicken thighs (also a Wellness Challenge recipe)

Afternoon Snack

Guac with red pepper and celery (though I will say that the other day we were out for a long hour walk, and I had a paleo brownie from the coffee shop. mmmmm)
Big mug of Bija ginger tea. It’s so good.

*I should also note that I’m drinking lots of water throughout the day.


  • Roast Beef (yes, I eat red meat, and relatively often. For me, the iron boosts my energy levels and I feel noticeably better. I always try to eat grass-fed meat though)
  • Baked Sweet Potato Rounds
  • Ginger Broccoli & Zucchini (Wellness Challenge recipe)
  • Arugula Salad (Wellness Challenge recipe)

With Dinner

A glass of red wine


A decadent piece of peanut butter brownie, from Chocolate Covered Katie.
