Vegan What I Eat In A Day - Mexican Feast (#6) - Breakfast Dragon Fruit Mango Pink Smoothie Bowl Banana Nice Cream - Rich Bitch Cooking Blog

This was my first time making a fruit smoothie bowl / nice cream with this level tropical fruit. I pretty much always go the way of chocolate banana or on the rare occasion agave with cinnamon. I LOVED this! I will totally make this again. The dragon fruit was not cheap, actually the whole thing wasn’t cheap but I still have left over mango and dragon fruit in the freezer.

I was completely moved by the color of the pitaya fruit. I can’t explain the feeling I had other than to say I was mesmerized by the beauty. I wasn’t expecting that by any stretch. I guess I’m ready to go to the Rainbow Gathering now.

Vegan What I Eat In A Day - Mexican Feast (#6) - Enchiladas, Cilantro Lime Rice, Squash - Rich Bitch Cooking Blog

Oh My God – This was insanely good. At first I was disappointed that I didn’t make my own enchilada sauce (recipe here). Homemade sauce is cheap and easy to make. The trader joes sauce I used a bit thinner than expected but in the end I’m lazy and it tasted fine.

  1. Heeeeeeeeeeeey. I have discovered your channel recently and I really enjoy your sense of humor. I have noticed you weigh everything, for a calorie reason I guess, I’m not sure if to maintain, loose or gain weight, but I had a couple of questions for you: first one, how can I calculate my serving sizes if I want to maintain my weight or loose a tiny bit? I had problems because I lost a lot of weight (not on purpose), and I got used to eating like a crazy person to regain it, but now I can tell I’m going over my ”normal” weight a bit too much and I know it’s because I’m still consuming a lot more calories than I should… I keep eating a lot because I’m afraid if I reduce the amount I will… under eat? (pretty sure that doesn’t exist XD). I’m completely lost in terms of normal portion sizes to maintain my weight T.T If you had any advice it would be helpful. Thanks!!

    • What’s up!!!!!!!!!!!

      You 100% can under eat just like you can overeat. I weigh my food to ensure that I’m not under eating or overeating. The goal is to eat adequately for my desired weight goal.

      Daily calorie allotments are estimates but generally pretty accurate. Most people will move towards their weight goals by following their daily calorie allotments accurately. If you plateau for more than 6 weeks or so then you you should make sure you’re logging your calories properly. Weight things on a scale instead of using measuring cups is the best way. If you’re logging 100% of what you’re eating and weighing everything on a scale and still plateauing then you can adjust your calories to keep making progress.

      Serving sizes are not universal. If I eat most of my calories during the day then my dinner with fit into whatever calories are left regardless of the serving size.

      Calories in, calories out is how all weight loss (gain or maintenance) is achieved. Counting your calories is one way to go about creating a calorie deficit. I pretty much have to calorie count which is fine since it fits my personality. It’s not for everyone. Some people create calorie deficits by doing intermittent fasting, going low carb, low fat, whole foods only or any of the millions of ways people do it. The only issue with controlling your weight through doing a restrictive diet is that you likely won’t maintain that way of eating for the rest of you life.

      I’d recommend reading through the MyFitnessPal forums since people all have the same questions about weight loss, daily weight fluctuation, feeling hungry or binging, etc. Read a ton of posts because everything you want to know has been asked 1oo times. There’s even a search bar to help you look though it all. If you create a profit with any of the calorie counting apps they’ll help you figure out what your calorie goals are.
