This is what I am eating at the moment because I am in a transitional living situation and have to crash at my rehearsal studio. I have a dorm fridge and a hot plate and most of my pantry items aren't around except for a small sauce pan and a blender. This is a good example of living economically though because I am saving a lot of money eating this way.

Meal 1

Oatmeal, and a smootie with protein powder, orange juice, banana, and spinach.

Meal 2

Protein shake with protein powder, spinach, banana and soy milk

Meal 3

brown rice and beans, cooked with onions, celery, and carrots and seasoned with salt, chili powder and large quantities of hot sauce.

Meal 4

left-overs of the beans and rice mixture, or a peanut butter and banana sandwich

Meal 5

apples and celery with peanut butter

Meal 6

Pot of vegetarian ramen type soup with whatever vegetables I have on hand. I usually have carrots, celery, onions, collard greens and spinach.

* I drink a large amount of water and I'll occasionally drink some tea as well.

This is pretty much what my normal diet looks like when I'm focusing on getting strong and building muscle:

Breakfast: 2 scoops organic raw hemp protein powder with 1-2 bananas,
1 scoop raw cocao chocolate powder, yacon root syrup,
half a cup of soaked cashews, coconut cream and water,
and raw cashew butter.

Snack: Cashew Butter Banana sandwhich- 4-8 tablespoons of
raw cashew butter, sprouted whole grain bread, one large
banana, with some raw honey and cold pressed flaxseed oil.

Lunch: Spinach and lettuce salad with four red tomatoes, organic
Homemade italian dressing with expeller pressed olive oil,
one cup of mixed seeds and cashews, and 2 scoops of hemp
protein powder with 1 banana and homemade coconut milk.

Snack: Crunchy cashew butter honey banana sandwhich- Sprouted
whole grain bread, raw honey, 1 banana, and 4-8 tablespoons
raw cashew nut butter. Red organic strawberries and coconut
cream dipped in raw organic cocao chocolate sauce made with
cocao powder, cocoa butter, coconut oil, and coconut cream.

Dinner: Raw pizza with dehydrated crust made of mixed nuts and seed,
coconut meat, flaxseeds, etc. The toping is made with my
homemade tomato sauce, green peppers, onions, raw cheese,
olives, and spices. Usually served with a side salad.

Before bed snack: 2 scoops raw organic hemp protein powder,
1 banana, homemade coconut milk and cream,
2 tblspoons of raw cashew butter on sprouted whole
grain bread, 2 cups organic red grapes, and flaxseed

All the food is pretty much all raw and organic.
This is around 4,500 calories-5000 calories, depending on the side dishes.

I used to think that the brain was the most wonderful organ in my body. Then I realized who was telling me this.

Have you tried VegLife rice protein? Good stuff. Much better tasting than Nutribiotic.

Cutting out all processed stuff to the best degree I can as it seems all the naturopathic philosophy for treating my eye condition says to go mostly raw and stick with whole foods, so I'm working my way over that direction (but still a long way from it as the raw thing is tough for me). Eating less than usual when training since I'm taking some time off and dieting down a bit, sticking between 2300 and 2500 cal/day which is my "lose weight slowly without exercise" range.

Meal 1 - 3 pieces sprouted grain toast, 2 with organic raspberry conserves and 1 with organic peanut butter, small glass of organic orange juice

Meal 2 - Big old salad - all spinach greens, mushrooms, 2 kinds of sprouts, purple cabbage, black eyed peas, topped with about 2-2.5 tbsp of Legere's Nutritonal Yeast Dressing (I hold the last 6 bottles in existence and won't give them up!) and a splash of balsamic vinegar

Meal 3 - Indian 3-bean salad, around 6 oz. (all beans, scallions and purple onions with a light vinaigrette marinade), also 2 scoops of chocolate Vega in water

Snack - around 2 oz. of hot spiced raw sprouted pumpkin seeds

Meal 4, which I'll be having in around 20 minutes, will be leftover sesame udon noodles with tofu, carrots (which I'm trying to learn to like) and sprouts, and a small handful of organic goji berries

Final snack will be some tamari brown rice crackers and spicy cashews (not raw, unfortunately)

This is a far cry from the usual staple of processed stuff I'd normally eat, but I'm going on a minimum 6-month plan to eat very well at least 6 days/week, and if I eat a meal or two of not-so-fresh stuff on the weekend, so be it!

every morning the same breakfast only with variating fruits.
100g oats
20g raisins
10g flax seed
10g dehulled hemp seeds
10g soy flour (fat reduced)
100g fruits (apples, bananas, strawberry, raspberry, differs every day)
250ml alpro soy milk
200ml of multivitamine juice

820kcal, 120g carbs, 20g fat, 40g protein. this breakfast helped me to get bigger ;)

then i'm eating (black wild) rice (14g/100g protein), potatoes, wholemeal noodles, foods rich in protein (soy products, beans, nuts, lupines, vegetables). my last meal is a salad with high protein soy texturate (64g/100g proteins and only 0,5g fats and 1g carbs).

I always have the same shake for breakfast:

140 g of oatmeal
30 g of dried fruits (such as currants and cranberries)
25 g of soy protein (chocolate flavour)
15 g of rice protein
700 mL of rice milk (17 % rice)

I divide this on in to portions, among with the second one i drink some good oil. :D

That is indeed my personal calorie bomb (1400 ckal), since i am not a great eater.

The rest of the day i eat pasta, rice, vegetables and always tofu.

Right now I eat fewer dates and more fresh fruit like bananas, apples, peaches, apricots etc. and therefor fewer calories. I ate this way during the whole winter. I eat differently during summer since I try to "listen to my bodies needs" and I usually crave and like those fruit and vegetables most that are in saison.

To be honest no. I really do not care as long as I am fit and feeling as good as I do. Of course I could calculate macros but IMO as long as I eat enough calories and a varied diet I am pretty sure they are okay.
