As I have already mentioned in this post, my doctor instructed me to eat gluten and dairy free for three months, to improve my overall health. At the beginning, I wasn´t delighted about that as all - as you can imagine- especially, because I love bread, cheese, pizza and yogurt and I couldn´t imagine my meals without them. One month has already passed and I have to admit, that it is easier as it seems! For most products, there is an alternative, like glutenfree bread, cookies and pasta from Schär and soy products from Alpro etc.. Unfortunately, at the cafeteria at university it is hard to find meals that are both gluten and dairy free, so I set my focus on following my instructions at home. Since I really like "What I Eat In A Day" Videos on Youtube, I thought I´d do a post on that. Just to be clear: I don´t eat like this everyday. This is rather a good day, where I have enought time in the morning to make myself something different than yogurt with granola and fruits. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy this post. Would you be interested in more posts on this topic? 

On a day, where I am not in a hurry in the morning, I like to make myself a smoothie or an acai bowl (on other days, I just eat some soy yogurt with my gluten free granola and some fruits). By adding toppings like granola, berries and nuts, it is really filling and healthy as well.

1 banana
2 tsp acai powder
2 cups frozen berries
a shot of milk (I use soy milk)

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend it, until the mixture is smooth, yet frozen.
Add some toppings of your taste. I usually go for gluten free granola ( link here), berries and a few slices of banana.

On an ideal day, I am home for lunch and I don´t have to eat at University. Especially in spring and summer, I like making myself a tasty salad. You can get really creative with the toppings here. In the summer time, I like adding some fruits to my salad as well as some nuts.

salad (I usually use lettuce hearts)
pomegranate seeds
1/2 avocado

For the dressing:
2 tbsp of oil
1 tbsp of vinegar
1 tsp honey
1 tsp mustard
some salt and pepper

To prepare the dressing, mix all the oil, vinegar, honey and mustartd until everything is evenly combined. Afterwards, add the salad to a bowl and mix it with dressing. Last, but not least, add the  tomatoes, pomegranate seeds, avocado and walnuts. Enjoy!

Before my doctor gave me instructions on my diet, I often had fruit salads for dinner when I wanted something healthy. However, I am not supposed to eat a lot of carbs for dinner now, so I had to come up with something else. Now, I often make myself an omlette or an egg sunny side up, but I also like to make myself a bowl using quinoa as the base. Of course, there are still carbs involved, but cutting them down completely is nearly impossible for me.

50 gr Quinoa
1/2 sweet potatoe
some salad
1/2 avocado
some falafel (I used a glutenfree mixture from dm)

Preheat the oven at 200 degrees and cut the sweet potatoe into small pieces. Add some salt, pepper and oil and let them roast in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes.While cooking the quinoa, cut the tomatoes into pieces and mash the avocado with a fork. Afterwards, prepare the falafel as instructed on the package of the mixture (usually that involves adding boiling water, letting it rest for 15 minutes, making small balls out of it and frying it in a pan until they are golden brown). Once everything is done, arrange it in a bowl and enjoy your dinner.
