Who loves simple, delicious meals like I do! Today I am sharing a what I eat in a day, where I share what kinds of meals helped me lose 70 lbs almost 2 years ago and now continue to eat to keep that healthy body and lifestyle.
I decided very soon after starting my channel to no longer include sponsorships any longer, and want all the products I recommend to be genuine things I love and use. However, making youtube videos is extremely labor and time intensive. If you have found my content at all helpful to your journey, please consider showing your support and making a small donation to help me continue making these videos.

Cauliflower Fig Oat Groats
I take some precooked cauliflower rice (I like the microwave bags from costco)
Some Precooked oat groats/steel cut oats (or oats you prefer- I make a big batch every week to keep in my fridge)
Some cinnamon, vanilla
a banana, and some fresh figs
Just combine the cauliflower rice and oats (I usually do about equal parts cauliflower rice to cooked oats) add in your spices to taste (feel free to add other toppings or some maple syrup etc to your taste preferences) and then top with a sliced banana, sliced figs, and a sprinkle of cinnamon!
Super tasty, but also so filling and satisfying.
Baked Ziti Dinner:
Alfredo Sauce: (this makes a large amount- half the recipe if desired. I liked having a lot leftover for veggies for the rest of the week)
One block of tofu (doesn’t matter the kind- just press out the liquid)
2 Cups frozen cauliflower
one onion sliced
1 lb potatoes (I generally use yukon golds)
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1 TB italian seasoning
1 TB Garlic Powder
1 TB Onion Powder
2 TB Costco No Salt Seasoning
1 tsp chopped garlic (or more to personal tastes)
Salt if desired- to personal tastes
1-3 cups leftover liquid from boiling veggies
Boil the potatoes, onion and cauliflower until fork tender. Combine rest of ingredients and blend until desired consistency. If you like a thicker sauce- use less of the boiling water. If you like it runnier, add more. I always recommend starting with less and slowly adding more until you like the consistency.
Boil your desired pasta according to package directions
Cut up any fresh vegetables you desire, I used mushrooms, carrots, zucchini, basil, and peppers and combine in a pan. Add a tiny bit of water, broth, or balsamic and saute them to your liking. Feel free to add desired spices as well. I added balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder, italian seasoning, red chili flakes and costco no salt seasoning.
In a bowl, combine the cooked pasta, veggies, trader joes low fat marinara and alfredo. I recommend using more sauce than you think you need, so it doesn’t dry out when baking. I placed in a pyrex, and covered with more alfredo sauce. Then sprinkled on a tiny bit of almond “parmesan” to make this, add 1/4 cup raw almonds, 1/2 tsp garlic and onion powder, 1 TB nutritional yeast ( and salt if desired) and blend until it is like a parmesan powder consistency. Sprinkle over the ziti, and top with fresh basil if desired.
I covered with foil, and baked at 375 for about 40 min, then took off the foil and baked for another 5-10 min. It was delicious! I hope you try this and love it, it is more work than most of my recipes but it is so worth it! It is sure to impress. We paired with a fresh salad topped with california balsamic, my favorite vinegars that are salt free. I buy them here: https://californiabalsamic.com/plantprovision/
