Hi all! I’m back with a new “What I eat in a day” post! Today we talk “morning routine oats”, asparagus (thank God Spring is here), vegetarian lunch and dinner.
Here is a reminder of my commitment to you regarding my “What I Eat in a Day” posts, I will:
- share everything that I ate for the day (including the chocolate, pastries and “carpe-diem” meals)
- include full recipes as much as possible (if homemade)
- try to tell you my opinion about my day of eating (was it balanced ? if not, what will I do to compensate on the next day ?)
WHAT I EAT IN A DAY #8

This was a calm and normal day.
When I don’t want to make any decision in the morning, I prepare my go to oats bowl. I have this maybe 4 to 5 times a week.
It’s easy, full of good stuff and gets me going all morning.
Here is how a build this bowl:
- any kind of milk (almond or full fat milk)
- a spice (my favorite is cinnamon as you can tell)
- a handful of nuts
- a handful of dried or fresh fruit
- + bonus: any kind of “superfood” I have around the house
I don’t like cooked oats, is that a weird thing?
For lunch, yay for vegetarian, I discovered a curcuma tofu => LOVED IT. Kept me full.
For the goûter, I was craving chocolate, so I had chocolate. This raw kind is very delicious.
And for dinner, ASPARAGUS. Yes yes yes. My favorite way to prepare them is roasted with salt, pepper and olive oil. Nothing more, it’s delicious!
As you can see, this day was a reasonable one, as I merely got out of the house (when I checked my step tracking app, I was only around 1,000 steps that day. Oops). But, I had my daily dose of chocolate (If I don’t I’m sure I’d die).
