My Diet

I am a HCLF (high carb low fat) vegan.
What is a vegan?
A vegan is someone that does not use or eat any animal products whatsoever.
It's a 100% plant-based diet.
What is a HCLF vegan? (80/10/10)
A HCLF vegan is a vegan that primarily eats carbs (from fruit!)
Most of my diet is made up of raw fruits, raw vegetables, cooked vegetables, cooked carbs (rice quinoa, potatoes, corn), and beans, with a few nuts and seeds.
80/10/10 means that 80% of my diet is made up of carbohydrates, 10% fat, and 10% protein.
Although I make a lot of raw vegan desserts on my blog, I DO NOT eat them everyday.
The desserts that I make are a delicacy - I usually only make them for special occasions, and I eat them sparingly.
Since I can't eat all of the desserts by myself, I like to bring them to family gatherings, parties, and fun events to share with my friends.
Although your diet is the most important part of your health, you can't forget to exercise. I'm a competitive distance runner (I run about 5-6 days out of the week) and I plan on being one for the rest of my life.
You can read about why I went vegan here: Why Vegan?

Throughout the day, I am constantly drinking water. When I first wake up, I drink 2 tsp of apple cider vinegar mixed with 2 cups of water before I eat any solid food. Not only is it important to hydrate when you first wake up, but the apple cider vinegar helps with digestion. I bring 48oz water bottle with me to school, so I am continuously hydrating my body. After dinner, I usually drink 3-4 cups of hot water or herbal tea.

I believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. 
Most kids my age don't eat breakfast because "there isn't enough time". The truth is, most people are too lazy to get up early to make themselves a nice breakfast, and I don't blame them. I don't like waking up early either. But I love breakfast too much to oversleep, even on a holiday. 
So, what do I eat for breakfast?
In the summer, I like to make a 64oz smoothie every morning.
I usually use 5-8 bananas, a few dates, coconut water, and whatever berries we have lying around.
If we don't have enough fruit, I have a big bowl of cereal with seeds.
In the winter, I like to have a big bowl of oatmeal with maple syrup and bananas.

    1. Thank you! <3 Nature's Path makes a bunch of great cereals that are high carb low fat with lots of fiber, One Degree Organics makes great veganic sprouted grain cereals too!
      On my Ezekiel Sandwiches I like to put some banana slices and organic fruit purees. Sometimes I'll make a sandwich with hummus and veggies, it really depends on what I have at home!

    3. Bị Nhạc Thành lôi kéo tay, khuôn mặt Doanh Thi má càng thêm hồng, nhưng lại không thể phản kháng, đột nhiên thình thình nhảy dựng lên.

      Đi vào gian phòng, Nhạc Thành khép cửa phòng lại, lập tức nằm ở trên giường nói:

      - Nhanh nghỉ ngơi đi, sáng ngày mai còn muốn đi Tam Tinh môn tham gia giao dịch hội đây.

      chém gió
      - Hảo, ngươi đầu tiên nghỉ ngơi, ta ngồi ở đây một hồi.

      Lúc này gò má một mảnh ửng đỏ nhìn Nhạc Thành nói, trông thấy Nhạc Thành nằm ở trên giường, không khỏi sợ hãi rụt rè, thần sắc đột nhiên là trở nên bất an.

      Nhìn thần sắc Doanh Thi, Nhạc Thành trong lòng cũng đã lén cười lên, thầm nghỉ:

      - Tiểu Ny Tử, ta sẽ cho ngươi chơi ta, bây giờ ta nên chỉnh ngươi.

      - Nè, Doanh Thi, ngươi nhanh nghỉ ngơi đi.

      Nhạc Thành tà tà cười, lập tức ngồi dậy, cố ý chặn ngang để kéo Doanh Thi đến

    4. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, apple cider vinegar (ACV) helps to boost metabolism, blocks the body’s storage of dietary fat plus breaks down and dissolves existing body fat. A study at Australia’s University of Sydney in which subjects who consumed two tablespoon of ACV daily experienced fewer surges and crashes in blood sugar levels. Read more at:

  3. How did you convince your parents that rating simply meals is healthy? They think I'm crazy for eating a lot of bananas.

  8. How many calories do you consume aprox on your diet? I usually am around 75% carbs 10% protein (I try and get more) 15% fat but I find myself hungry at night and crave fruit which I can't have because you're not supposed to eat fruit before bed so what do I do?

  14. I would absolutely love(and am absolutely willing) to pursue vegan diet. However, my current lifestyle does not allow me to cut dairy products out of my diet, so a vegiterean diet is the most that I can manage(don't worry I don't eat eggs).
