What I Eat in a Day – Vitamix Edition
I’ve been absolutely loving the huge community that’s formed on my YouTube channel. I’m also having fun switching up my normal recipe videos with more lifestyle content. Hopefully, it not only gives you greater insight into “me” the person behind Downshiftology, but also a sneak peek into how I truly live my life and prioritize my wellness journey.

And subscribe to my YouTube Channel for weekly cooking videos!
A video theme that’s quite popular on YouTube is “What I Eat in a Day” videos. Videos that show not just one recipe or meal but how a person eats throughout the entire day. And you guys have been requesting me to do this type of video every week for oh, the last year!
On top of that, I receive numerous requests daily for more Vitamix videos. So I reached out to my friends at Vitamix and asked if they’d like to partner on a “What I Eat in a Day” video. I thought we could have a little fun with it. And because they’re awesome, they said yes!
Now, in all honesty, I initially intended this video to be somewhat tongue in cheek, because obviously I don’t use my Vitamix for every meal of the day. But here’s the funny thing. This is truly how I eat. And while I may not use my Vitamix for every meal of the day, I absolutely use it at least once a day for whipping up any of the recipes you see in the video or cashew milk or almond butter. My staple items.
My hope is that these recipes can provide a little inspiration for you as well and remind you that there’s so much more that you can do with your Vitamix in addition to blending smoothies. My Vitamix A3500 is a versatile workhorse appliance in my kitchen!
Here’s What I Ate Today
- Breakfast – Post Workout Green Smoothie
- Mid-Morning Snack – Hard Boiled Egg
- Lunch – Spring mix salad with tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, goat cheese and my baked herb chicken (I show how to make this on my Meal Prep #1 video). I top my salad with Avocado Dressing.
- Afternoon Snack – Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, plus Chamomile Lavender Tea.
- Dinner – Zucchini Noodle Caprese
And the Vitamix Tools I’m Using
I hope you enjoy my first ever “What I Eat in a Day” video and the sneaky drone footage I managed to film. I truly wanted to give you a sense of my life in Southern California, including my regular hiking spot, a broader view of my kitchen and where I frequently lounge and eat on my patio.
