This is part of The Post and Courier’s Daily Digest series, in which one of our food reporters asks a local to describe a day of eating in detail.
Isabelle Acosta is a Hampton Park frequenter who lives downtown off Upper King Street.
Since weekends never seem to be relaxing and are always filled with good food, adult beverages, a lenient workout schedule and friends or family, I do my best during the week to eat at home and consume what makes me feel good.
Today, however, was a day of intuitive eating from home.
I started the day with hot yoga and a coffee with honey and soy milk.
For breakfast, I almost always start with fruit and yogurt, but I was extra hungry after my workout. On a toasted Food for Life gluten-free English muffin, I spread Myokos vegan cream cheese. On one half, I put sliced heirloom tomatoes from the farmers market and on the other, an over-medium egg.
After a few hours, I made a green smoothie with spinach, mangos, banana, Maca powder, spirulina and cashew milk. After that, I had another coffee.
Then, a handful of cherry tomatoes and Simple Mills almond flower crackers dipped in Ithaca hummus. I had a banana as a late afternoon snack.
For dinner, I love a pasta loaded with vegetables. Today in particular I decided to have a kale salad with goat cheese, Kalamata olives, red onion and shrimp.
The evening ended, like usual, with tea in bed.
