My Vegan Month Experience

May is gone already and with that, I’m done with my vegan month. I thought I’d share my vegan month experience with you guys, including what I loved, what was challenging and my future plans. All in all, last month was a positive experience. I didn’t have many challenges throughout the month and to be honest, it wasn’t so far from my regular diet. To clear things up, I basically eat a vegetarian diet 99% of the time, which includes a bit of yogurt, cheese, eggs and a rare bite of fish or poultry. The only thing I don’t eat is red meat, which is a decision I made over 7 years ago. So, looking back on my vegan diet over the past month, I can truly say that I enjoyed it. I…

What I Eat in a Day (Vegan)

I’m back for another what I eat in a day post, but this time, it’s vegan! If you’ve been following this blog over the past month, you may know that I’m doing a vegan month for May. For that reason, I thought it would be a good occasion to show you what I’ve been eating in a day. A vegan diet can be challenging at times and it certainly requires a bit of planning. If you’re not familiar with a vegan diet, it can be difficult to get all the required nutrients. You do need to pay a bit more attention to vitamin D, vitamin B12, calcium, iron and protein. That’s not to say that a vegan diet can’t be nutritionally adequate. It certainly can! My hope is that this post gives…

Vegan for One Month

I’m going vegan for one month. When I said that to my family, friends and coworkers, they all had the same reaction: Aren’t you vegan already? Well no, not really. I eat a vegetarian diet 99% of the time, that’s true, but I’m not vegan. I do eat eggs, cheese and yogurt. So why am I going vegan for one month? While I love cheese and yogurt, I’m starting to think that it doesn’t like me. More specifically, I’m starting to think that dairy is worsening my acne. It’s just a theory, but I want to test it out. Okay, my acne is not (usually) horrible, but it’s bad enough that it makes me self-conscious and uncomfortable at times. For that reason, I think it’s worth the…

What This Dietitian Eats in a Day

Many of you have been asking and today, I’m finally sharing what this dietitian eats in a day! By this dietitian, I mean me.  I often ask my patients for a 24-hour food recall to assess their nutrition. I ask them what they eat on a regular day and at what times. This is what I feel like I’m doing right now. I’m giving you guys my 24-hour food recall. Maybe a little more detailed than what I usually get from my patients! Keep in mind that what I eat changes from one day to the other. I decided to give a few examples per meal and snack to give you a better idea of what I eat. I feel that sharing only one day as an example wouldn’t…
