Breakfast: Shake (banana,dates,pear,flaxseed, soy protein) 4 weetabix
Snack: (post-workout): Cashews, fruit, Fortified soymilk.
Lunch: Chickpeas with spinach, garlic and small chunks of potato + Quinoa. King size salad (lettuce,cucumber,etc)
Snack: Orange juice, small portion of dark chocolate, almonds.
Dinner: Two avocado/tofu/sprouts sandwiches, quinoa leftovers, gazpacho (cold drink made of vegetables)

Weird day. Also I probably felt short of calories, because of a killer basketball game.

By the way, it's being impossible to find non-soy protein around here.

A typical day for me at the moment is:

mornings: coffee
lunch: beans, mixed seeds, nutritional yeast, hemp oil, salad vegetables, hommus, chilli sauce
lunch 2: bagels with vegemite
afternoon: protein shake, cookies or builders bar or crisps
dinner: soya tvp, seitan, grilled vegetables, nutritional yeast
dinner 2: almond butter, bananas or apples or blueberries
dinner 3: whatever else is needed to nail my macros, usually carbs like crisps, donuts or ice-cream

I only really eat 2-3 meals a day, I just tend to drag a meal out over an hour or two.

Average weekday for me:

Breakfast: Porridge with cinnamon, half banana and peanut butter
Boots effervescent multivitamin

Snack: Soy/pea protein with cinnamon, fruit (usually a kiwi)

Lunch: Some concoction of: tofu/soy mince, beans/chickpeas/couscous/rice/sweet potato or a combination, vegetables, some kind of spice

Snack: Soy/pea protein with cinnamon, soy yoghurt, other half of breakfast banana, peanut butter or almonds, kiwi
Usually not all of these, but maybe two or three, maybe more depending on what time lunch and snacks and training fall and hunger/boredom levels

Pre-training: Apple, dark chocolate

Post-training: Nature's Whey Ignite Ultra-V shake

Dinner: Another concoction of: soy mince or tofu, vegetables, chili sauce, tahini

Sometime after dinner, sometime before bed: Soy/pea protein, sometimes soy yoghurt with linseed, sometimes some peanut butter or almond butter

Haven't listed supplements apart from protein just because I tend to have that as a stand-alone snack.

Snacks may vary depending on what time I get up/go to work/whether I'm in the office/when I'm in the office/when I'm training but assuming a 9-5 workday with training about 7pm that is how my average day's eating will look. Not hugely inspiring I'm afraid!

You know when there's almost nothing on the fridge and you have to manage a meal quickly with whatever you find cause you're starving to death? Did a brown rice + spinach + mushroom + pistaccho + yeast thing in 10 minutes aprox and IT WAS AWESOME. And the ingredients weren't as fresh as I'd like. So close to find my own risotto master recipe!
