What I Eat In A Day #1

So today I’m doing my first post titled ‘What I Eat In A Day’ but as some of you will know, it’s not my first what I eat in a day type of post. I used to frequently write posts called ‘What I Ate Wednesday’ but now I don’t post on a Wednesday and I didn’t like the pressure of having to do them every Wednesday. I really love reading and writing these types of posts and I love watching videos like this too as I think they are so interesting and helpful as you can get great meal ideas. I’m not vegan or vegetarian but a lot of the food I eat is plant based vegan so for each meal I’ll let you know if it’s suitable for vegans etc. And me being me, I forgot to take pictures of anything I ate… Sorry! I really hope you enjoy this and let me know if you would like me to continue making these posts.
