What a Nutritionist Eats

If you are like me and choose a healthy plant-based diet, people always look at you either in horror or confusion when they ask “Well…what doooo you eat then?” They cannot seem to think of anything else to eat, when you subtract meat and dairy, other than the lame “so-called” vegetarian alternative options such as; wilted Iceburg lettuce salad with a slice of radish, carrot sticks and ranch dressing, and a slice of cold, wobbly, unseasoned tofu. So, in order to bust those myths and shed light on the truth of plant-based eating, I am going to share with you a couple typical days of eating in my shoes. I hope that this inspires you to explore a bit outside your box, because as you can see there is a lot out there! So welcome to what a nutritionist eats!
