Just to wrap things up, I wanna say that for me, eating the same thing every single day never works. I love food, so that means I often switch things up and enjoy all different kinds of foods! Today I happened to eat out for two of my meals (due to being back home for a bit and my parents not going to the grocery store), and I ate a lot more fruit than I usually would (due to it being literally 1 million degrees outside). Although I am lucky that I actually crave healthy, nutritious foods, I want to reiterate and stress the importance of not holding yourself to expectations when it comes to food. Some days you might wake up wanting a fruit & veg smoothie, other days you may wake up wanting a whole mess of pancakes. Sometimes you might eat 2 snacks between meals, other days you might not snack at all. How hungry you are and what your body/mind craves changes everyday due to so many different things like exercise, travel, hormones, and so much more. So, if your struggling because you can't find a "consistent" eating routine, please please please know that everyday is different and to not hold yourself to any eating expectations. I hope this can give you some ideas of what to eat if you're trying to live a plant based lifestyle!
