Vegan What I Eat in a Day || Yoga, Stir Fry + Pasta || Ep#14

November 5, 2019 6 By William Morgan


hey guys this is Heather. I’m starting my day
with some yoga today and but before I do
that I wanted to sit down
I have been practicing gratitude for a
while now where I write down 1 to 3
things that I feel grateful for each day
and I was doing it before bed but I read
recently that doing in the morning
is a great way to start your day in
that mindset so I’m gonna sit down right
now and write a thing or two in my
little happy monster notebook that I feel grateful for.
This is one of my favorite
morning sessions actually one of my
favorite sessions ever it’s called
morning motivation yoga
Jackie Casal Mahrou is the instructor it’s over on yoga
download dot com. It’s a 30-minute session
and I love not just the flow that she
leads through but also the meditation
that she brings to this session I
struggle to meditate just sitting and
meditating so I like a moving meditation
and jackie starts off by telling you to
think about what power you need for your
day and making that your intention
throughout your practice and I loved her
last line which is let us have an
awesome day. So I am now ready to have an
awesome day! I’ve got breakfast, I’m
having some toast with peanut butter and
smoothie there’s just fruit and ground
flax seeds in here so I hope you’re
ready to have an awesome day we’re gonna
eat some good stuff we’re gonna have
some fun so let’s get to it
so it’s desk time for me now and I find
it a lot easier to stay at my desk when
I have something yummy to sip on so I’m
gonna make some matcha which my lovely
sister-in-law has been trying to teach
me how to whisk properly so let’s see
how I do
it looks pretty good right? quality
matcha I think is one of the keys and
I’m gonna make it s
latte by adding some steamed almond milk
tasty
alright guys it’s way past lunch time
and I’m so hungry but I took advantage
of working from home today to
pressure-cook some chickpeas while I was
at my desk and I also just got some
couscous steaming so that’s done and I’m
gonna do a quick veggie stir-fry with a
peanut sauce I’ve got some carrot I’m
gonna do a little water saute a sprinkle
of salt and while that starts I’ll make my
peanut sauce – just a nice scoop of peanut butter
and some apple cider vinegar you gotta
start gently here otherwise you will
spray it all over yourself… I have done
this many times – sprayed on myself, that
is. Also made the sauce. I wonder what my rate of success is in not spraying
myself… maybe like 50 50? It’s probably a
better success rate than that… maybe a
third of the time I spray it on myself.
Now, when you get to the point that
it’s actually mixed together you start
whisking it till it’s nice and thick
smooth and creamy. I’m gonna add some soy sauce…
a little bit of toasted sesame oil
and again be careful here you also don’t
want to throw dark soy sauce on yourself
and then that’s like a thick version, if
you want you can thin it out but I like
to just toss it with my veggies and then
it gets a little bit of water from the
veggies – particularly cause I’m water
sauteing them. Sometimes when I don’t
want to do dishes I toss my veggies in
the pan with the fork that I’m gonna eat
with, and because I’m using my ceramic
nonstick I’m just trying to be very
careful not to scratch. So carrots are
starting to cook, throw those in and then
some frozen corn because I love it, and
adds to the volume since I’m really
hungry and it’s a late lunch so I’m
ravenous
You can cook this as much or as little as you
want I really like to just take a little
bit of the raw edge off so see how the
broccoli is changing color a little bit
here, getting a little softer. Same with
the carrots. But I don’t really feel the
need to cook my peppers too much and the
corn I just want to thaw. And then my
couscous is done so I’ll just fluff it
up a little bit and I’m gonna throw my
chickpeas right in the pan here. See the
thing when I use my big pan is I wind up
usually making a little bit too much so
I might have some leftovers which is
fine I would usually be making this for
dinner and saving the lunch for
leftovers so that I could take it to go
or have a really quick prep in the
middle of the day just pull it out of
the fridge and eat it and that looks
like it’s cooked enough for me. So…
debating whether to put this on in the
pan which I will then have to clean or
drizzle it on top which doesn’t get
quite as saturated with goodness… Let’s
be brave
I’ll just clean this pan right
after I bring it out and probably
better to not have this on the heat so
that the sauce doesn’t stick as much
I wish you guys could smell this because
it smells so good I’m gonna take all of
the broccoli out of here because I have
a broccoli craving and then I’ll leave
that bit as leftovers and I can add some
more stuff to it later but that is a
gorgeous looking lunch bowl
oh my goodness guys what a day I spent I
think four hours – maybe five – battling
with formatting on a Word document
incredibly frustrating incredibly like
laser focus attention I am wiped! anyway
it is time for dinner, so I feel like
something just easy so I’m gonna make
some whole-wheat
fusilli and pair it with some mushrooms
and nutritional yeast and I’m gonna make
enough to pack up for lunch and then
call it a night
all right so I’ve got pasta boiling
I’ve got mushrooms water sauteing back
here with some salt and add some garlic
that I chopped up this is what I should
have used to toss my stir-fry at lunch
this spoon spatula is fantastic and it’s
really good at scooping up the peanut
butter sauce anyway I’ve gotten over my
laziness this evening because I’ve got
two things to stir get that in there and
I’m at the point here that I want to add
a little bit of olive oil this is partly
for flavor for the
to make it nice and savory and that’s
pretty much done so I’m gonna turn that
off while the pasta finishes cooking
I’ve got some of my basil from the
window so that needs to be eaten and
will be lovely in here
so we’ll get the basil in there and then
some lime juice cuz why not and then my
cooked pasta is gonna go right in the
pan I think that’s about the right ratio
so I’ll have a little bit of pasta left
over for something else maybe a few more
and then some nutritional yeast I’m
gonna go very generous on the
nutritional yeast toss it all together
serve out what I want for dinner and
then I’m gonna put the rest in this
container to take for lunch so I’m going
to put all the rest of that pasta and
veggies along with some of my cooked
chickpeas toss it together and then I’ve
got a delicious lunch ready to go
It’s really tasty – really tasty. Well thanks
