What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW #6)

Today I’m sharing a full day of eats with you guys! It’s interesting for me to keep a “food diary” for the day, plus you always seem to love these😊

This post is in no way whatsoever meant to serve as an example of what you “should” (or should not, for that matter) be eating! It’s solely for inspiration and a little peek into my day. Please do not compare your eating to mine, we are all different and have to do what’s best for us🙌🏻

So let’s just get into it!

7amCoffee with Ancient Nutrition collagen (code dancingfordonuts for 20% off), homemade macadamia milk (made with a Modest Mylk base), apple pie spice and 4-5 drops SweetLeaf English Toffee stevia (p.s. that’s a suuuper old pic up there, but my coffee is always the same, anyway!)

8:30amGreen smoothie with 1/2 frozen banana, 1 scoop of Tone It Up vanilla protein, 4 ice cubes, ~1/2 cup macadamia milk, 2 handfuls spinach, 1 tbsp chia seeds and 1 tbsp peanut butter

9amGummy vitamins because I am the gummy vitamin QUEEN👑😂 Right now I’m taking a women’s multivitamin from Smarty Pants and MegaFood elderberry gummies for immune support.

11am – A slide of my simple seed bread topped with Fourth and Heart Chocti in Coffee

1pmHomemade ramen for an upcoming post! I used Pacific Foods bone broth for the base and added in shredded carrots, garlic, oyster mushrooms, soy sauce, sesame oil, sririacha, a jammy egg, ramen noodles (of course!), avo and scallions. SO GOOD.

4pmCarrots and celery with a mustard/hummus/Sir Kensington’s buffalo ranch mix and a clementine on the side! Also some Lebby Dark Chocolate Chickpea snacks…not fully sold on those yet, but I did finish off the bag yesterday so I guess that’s saying something😅

7:30pm – A Beyond Meat slider and portabello fries at a fun Zumba event! I also tried one of their mini chicken dogs and some popcorn.

9pm – I usually try to stop eating by this hour, but the event threw me off since it was a later-than-usual workout for me and didn’t have a full dinner! I at 1 and 1/2 of these brownies plus a trail mix situation of some Magic Spoon cereal (code DANCINGFORDONUTS for free shipping! The frosted is my fave ever), pepitas and cacao nibs.

And that my friends, is IT. Not necessarily a normal day of eats, but a real one! Thanks for stopping by and see you again soon (maybe from Asia?! We leave Saturday!)😍

Weekend In My Life: Food Blogging, Fitness + Eats (My First Vlog!)

Guys. I did something. I made my first YouTube video🙊

Dancing for Donuts | Weekend in My Life: Food Blogging, Fitness, and LA Eats (My First Vlog!!!)

I’m not gonna lie to you, I’m kind of afraid to post this, but I’m also kind of really proud so I want to share it with you…

I promised myself I would learn how to create and edit video in 2018, so here I am! It’s not perfect, the sound isn’t great and the transitions are off, plus I definitely need to work on my lighting and my voice, but HEY. I’ll get there😊

If I’ve hung out with you in the last few months, you probably know that I’ve become semi-addicted to YouTube videos…I’m not sure why, but I do know that I feel like I know some of the YouTubers I follow (which is ridiculous, I know…) because it is SO much easier to get to know someone via video rather than writing or photos. Do you know what I mean? Like if you can hear someone’s voice and picture them, you can just get a sense of their personality much better. So it was this idea, coupled with the fact that I want to be able to offer video services to my social media clients, that I decided to start vlogging. I had the MOST fun time making this and I honestly can’t wait to make more.

That being said, please oh please give me feedback, even if it’s a little negative (I have thick skin)! I want to get better, to make better content for YOU so if there’s something you’d want to see more or less of, or if you think this is a silly idea altogether, feel free to let me know. I appreciate your honesty! And if you want to see more, just hit the subscribe button on the bottom right under the video once you’re on YouTube’s actual website😊
