Daily Digest: Weekends mean Chubby Fish, Malagon, but during the week, it's food made at home

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.

Living downtown, on the weekends you can find me indulging on the whole fish from Chubby Fish or the fideos from Malagon.

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.
