What I Eat In A Week: Summer Edition

The number one question I get asked is, "What do I eat?"  I realize that most people are just looking for inspiration to get them started on their vegan way or ways to spice up what they are already doing.  So here's a glimpse of what I ate in one week, Healthy Hoff style.

I tend to change what I eat through the various seasons.  It's currently summer and I'm stripping my meals way back and keeping it very simple.  I also tend to eat the same things daily for breakfast and lunch throughout the work week.  It does not get boring and I actually find myself craving certain meals, so give it a go.  Keeping it simple is key to keeping it healthy.

My cooking technique of choice at the moment is steaming - predominately with the help of my latest toy...The Instant Pot.  I'm using it so much, I'm seriously considering getting a second, which I hear is very common in the IP community.

While I gave some measurements to give you perspective, I don't measure anything.  I just didn't want you thinking I was cramming a bag of baby carrots down or something...  And not listed, I drink about a gallon of water throughout the day - water is my beverage of choice. 

So this is what I eat Monday - Friday up until dinner:


Mid Morning Snack
  • 1 cup Baby Carrots
  • 1 pint fresh Blueberries


Mid Afternoon Snack
  • 1-2 cups Cherries

After Work Snack
(I only have this if I'm working out, which typically means 30 minutes of tennis.)

  • 1 Gala Apple

Monday Dinner
After Dinner Snack

Tuesday Dinner

Wednesday Dinner

Thursday Dinner

Friday Dinner

Now on the weekends, I mix things up at little bit:

Saturday Breakfast
  • Three cups of water first thing!
  • Fresh Blended Orange Juice
  • Hashbrowns with Black Beans and Sauerkraut (I know this seems odd, but it eliminates the desire for Salt & since it's fermented offers a bit of probiotic goodness.)

Saturday Lunch

Sunday Breakfast

That's what I ate in one week!  I hope it helped or inspired your vegan journey and remember the key to keeping it healthy is keeping it simple.

Keep it healthy!
