What I Eat In a Day: Episode 5

What I Eat in a Day: Episode #5 -- a video series from Alyssa Rimmer all showing you how to eat simple, clean and healthy dishes!

You guys! I can't believe we've already done 5 episodes in the What I Eat In a Day Series! These videos have been so much fun to put together and clearly you guys have been loving them, so we're going to keep on rolling with this series and see where it takes us!

For this episode, it's a pretty typical day for me, except that I actually went over to my cousin's house for dinner instead of eating at home. Everything you see here is gluten-free and vegan, super healthy and a great example of how healthy eating can be simple and quick. I don't think I spent more than 10 minutes prepping any of these meals!

Before we dive in, I have two announcements:

  1. We reached over 10K subscribers on YouTube!! Super exciting and I couldn't be more grateful the support you all have given me to help grow this channel. It's helped me reach more people and inspire their meals and help them eat healthier, so THANK YOU!
  2. I've put together a 7-day meal plan based on the way I eat! Since these videos have been so popular, I wanted to pull together some of my favorite recipes (and some that are featured in this series) to bring you a quick, easy and nutritious meal plan that you can print out and use for your own healthy eating! You can pick that up or check it out by clicking here!

So without further ado, let's dive in to today's new video:


  • Pre-Breakfast – Filtered Water with Lemon
  • Breakfast – Almond Yogurt with granola + fruit and Green Juice
  • Snack – Energizing Matcha Latte
  • Lunch – Avocado Pesto Zucchini Noodles over greens + Cinnamon Raisin Toast with mixed nut butter
  • Snack – Chocolate Green Smoothie
  • Dinner – Massaged Kale Salad, Roasted Veggies, Warm Chickpeas, Pesto Zucchini Noodles + Quinoa

Products I mentioned in the video: SOMA Water Filter (LOVE this!!), Organic Matcha PowderMonk Fruit ExtractVegan MCT Oil , OXO Lemon Squeezer, Sprouted Gluten-Free Bread, Vegan Protein Powder
