What I Eat in a Day – Vitamix Edition

See all of the healthy recipes I eat in a day, with the help of my Vitamix blender.

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.

Watch my What I Eat in a Day video

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!

MY LATEST VIDEOS

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!

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.

  1. Lisa, I just found you out and never let go. Such an inspiration and really love your taste in food and organization of spaces. The question I have regards the drone you use in some of your videos, could you share what model is it?

  2. Wonderful and useful info! I am looking to expand my hiking spots here in LA and was wondering where this one here was. It reminded me of Topanga a little but seemed more open. Could you share which one this is? :)
    Thanks! 

  3. Such an awesome video! You’re such an inspiration as I’m also struggling with my digestion and currently working in corporate, so a lot of on-the-go meals.

    I’m intrigued by your banana bag in the video, could you leave a link to it pls?

    Thanks!

  4. Hi Lisa,

    You already mentioned all your utensils and even kitchen stools in the description of your YouTube video.. but I’ve got to ask, where did you get the bowl you made your zucchini noodles in? It is so gorgeous!

  5. Hi Lisa!
    I was wondering if you switch your blades out )as per Vitamix’s recommendation) when blending dry items? I use the wet blade and hope I can make anything with it without buying the dry one haha. Please let me know!

  6. I’m really impressed with what you eat. I would definitely love to try some of them. Thank you for sharing this.

  7. Huh. That is a lot of raw food. I can’t eat that much raw stuff. This is just some feedback for you. I went Paleo because I was having very debilitating migraines. And I worked with a nutritionist, did elimination diets, yadda yadda, and we realized that I had multiple food triggers. And eventually we figured out that anything that’s relatively hard to digest — including raw foods — was a potential headache trigger. I used to eat lots of big salads, and some of my very worst (horrible) headaches came after eating big raw salads. So now I am very careful to limit the amount of raw food I eat — a small salad or a radish or green onion with a meal — that’s about it. Occasionally a small serving of sauerkraut, which of course is raw. I do make smoothies infrequently but I’m careful with those, too. This is a whole day’s worth of food in this video and almost everything in it is raw! Only the chicken is cooked. That would a recipe for bad bad headache for me. I also have leaky gut and I think other folks with leaky gut (who may or may not have headaches) also try to avoid eating too much raw stuff. If you have a fine healthy gut you should eat like this — enjoy! But many people who have gone on restrictive diets have underlying health issues. I’m guessing a fair number of paleo eaters would not want to do this much raw food in a day. Cheers.
