What I Eat In A Day better than TAKEOUT / PLANT BASED + OIL FREE
You all are loving these videos so we are back with another What I Eat in a Day! Today we are going to show you what a normal day of eating looks like for us during the week. This video is for those who are often tempted by take out food! First, we make smoothies for breakfast to load up on all the nutrients we need for the day. Then, we prepare healthy, plant-based, and salt, oil, and sugar free versions of restaurant classics. You are definitely going to love these recipes, so say goodbye to unhealthy and expensive take out!
For breakfast, Dillon prepared both of us our own smoothies! We love to start off our day with a healthy smoothie with lots of fruit, protein, nuts, and of course greens. Healthy smoothies like this you cannot even get for a steep price at places like Jamba Juice or Néktar. Dillon makes his smoothies very calorie dense and uses them as a meal replacement, while mine is mainly for added nutrients especially as a nursing mom.
While we always preach to never nutrient chase, smoothies are the only exception! We recommend putting anything in your smoothie that you may not include in your diet normally like maringo, alma, maca, chlorella, and spirulina. This is because when making smoothies it takes little to no extra time to add these nutrients to your smoothies and blend them up! The reason we add nuts tour smoothies is to get the amazing benefits without accidentally overeating. Since nuts are so rich, it is very easy to overindulge without even realizing, therefore smoothies are a much more controlled way to consume nuts.
We recommend using a kitchen scale to measure all the ingredients for your smoothie, if you don’t have one you can buy an inexpensive one on amazon here. We also highly recommend making pre-measured jars of all the dry ingredients like nuts, seeds, oats, buckwheat, etc. to really speed up the process in the morning. It is important to note that most smoothies are not ideal if your goal is weight loss because of the high calorie density. The recipe for the soy yogurt we use in our smoothies can be only be found if you are a member of our LIVE cooking show, where you have access to our recipe, step-by-step guide, and how-to replay video!

The easiest way to load up on all those nutrients!
- 25-50g kale or favorite greens
- 30g soy yogurt or tofu
- 150g frozen fruit
- 15g sprouts of any kind
- 1 ripe banana
- 5g almonds
- 5g walnuts
- 1 tablespoon dry buckwheat
- 1 tablespoon oats
- 2 teaspoons flax seeds
- 2 teaspoons chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon dulse flakes
- 1 brazil nut
- 1 teaspoon pepitas
- 1 teaspoon sunflower seeds
- 1 tablespoon WYW Date Powder
- 3 deglet dates
- water, to desired consistency (~1-1 ½ cups)
- Other Options:
- 1 teaspoon moringa powder
- 1 teaspoon amla powder
- 1 teaspoon maca powder
- 1 teaspoon chlorella powder
- 1 teaspoon spirulina powder
Add everything to a high-speed blender and blend until nice and smooth! Make sure to rinse and clean that blender right away!
For lunch, we prepared a classic that is so good it is difficult to believe it is healthy…french fries! Of course, french fries you find at restaurants are laden with salt and oil that give potatoes a bad rep. Luckily, our twice baked potato method makes the crispiest and tastiest fries without the salt and oil and are good for you! First you have to cook the potatoes, don’t cut them yet! We prefer to cook the potatoes in the instant pot because it is so easy, but you can use whichever method you like. Then, refrigerate the potatoes overnight, cut into wedges, and sprinkle on a salt-free seasoning like our Stardust Salt Substitute and Galaxy Dust Salt Substitute and air fry!
We even made crispy broccoli florets to make this a more balanced meal! We sprinkled frozen broccoli florets with some WYW Galaxy Dust Salt Substitute and placed them in the airfryer basket to cook at the same time as the potato wedges. Both came out so perfectly crispy and seasoned! Of course we had to dip everything in our favorite healthy salt, oil, and sugar free sauces from Well Your World including Sweet Mustard, Tomato Ketchup, and Indian Everything.
Air Fried French Fries and Broccoli
Crispy without the oil!
- 2 russet potatoes, cooked and cooled overnight
- 1 tablespoon WYW Stardust Salt Substitute
- ½ 14-16 oz. bag frozen broccoli florets
- 1 tablespoon WYW Galaxy Dust Salt Substitute
- WYW Sweet Mustard, for dipping
- WYW Tomato Ketchup, for dipping
- WYW Indian Everything, for dipping
Precooked potatoes make the best french fries! Cook the russet potatoes using your preferred method, let them cool, and refrigerate overnight. We prefer to cook our potatoes in the Instant Pot because it is so fast and easy!
Cut the cooked potatoes into wedges and sprinkle with Stardust. Place the wedges in an air fryer at 400°F for 25-30 minutes, or to your desired crispness. Repeat this process with the broccoli florets using Galaxy Dust!
Dip in Well Your World sauces and enjoy!!
Dinner was a Peanut Ramen Bowl that first debuted on our 10 Minute Meals cooking show! This recipe really only takes 10 minutes to prepare and it is so delicious! Not only does this taste like restaurant quality, but it is good for you too! We love how creamy the sauce is and the fresh ginger gives it that amazing zest. The best ramen noodles we have found are the Lotus Foods Brown Rice & Millet Ramen Noodles. We highly recommend making a double batch or triple batch of this sauce so you can use it for other dishes like spring rolls, salads, or just tossing on veggies. You are definitely going to want to try this recipe out especially when you are craving that classic take-out flavor! Thank you for joining us on another What I Eat in a Day!
Peanut Ramen Bowl
A 10 minute meal like no other!
- Peanut Sauce Ingredients
- ⅓ cup peanut butter
- ¼ cup peanut butter powder
- ¼ cup water
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce/tamari
- 1 tablespoon miso paste
- (both optional)
- 2 teaspoons WYW Date Powder
- 2 deglet dates
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1” fresh ginger root
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 scallion
- 4-6 tablespoons water
- crushed red pepper or Thai chili, to taste
- Bowl Ingredients
- • rice ramen
- • frozen broccoli
- • frozen shelled edamame
- • broccoli slaw
- • chopped scallion
- • chopped cilantro
- • sesame seeds
To prepare the sauce, add everything to a blender and blend until smooth. This one keeps very well in the fridge so make a double batch!
To prepare the bowl, bring an oversized pot of water to a boil and throw in 2-3 ramen noodle blocks. We love the Lotus Foods brand. Allow these to cook for about 5 minutes, using a fork to break them apart once they start to soften.
Then add some frozen broccoli, bell peppers, and shelled edamame to the water with the ramen noodles. Let this simmer a couple minutes longer, and then strain it out and transfer to a bowl. Toss with peanut sauce and broccoli slaw. Sprinkle on some chopped scallions, cilantro, and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
