Has anyone heard of CRON?

This is an almost 100 percent nutrition day according to my cron-o-meter, especially for how many calories it is. :)

Happy veganism!!!

1/3 cup quick oats, water, few chunks of frozen organic banana, some dagoba 100% chocolate shavings, 1 tsp flaxseed, 1/8 cup sesame seeds, 1/8 cup wheat germ, 1/2 tsp turmeric, and stevia. A brazil nut. A vitamin b12 supplement.

Big plate of seasoned steamed broccoli topped with a sprinkling of sesame seeds and lemon juice. A carrot.

A few dark chocolate covered strawberries (using 100 percent dagoba and around a tbsp of agave...microwaved, the chocolate gets really fluffy and is wonderful when it dries!!). A few more raw strawberries (1 cup strawberries in full total). 1/8 cup of sesame seeds. I've been outside in the sun long enough today too (vitamin d).

2 cups of romaine lettuce from the garden with 1 tbsp vinaigrette.

Another bowl of oatmeal similar to breakfast. A calcium supplement.

There are just two supplements. I needed literally nothing else and the nutrition on the page in all of the nutrients/minerals is actually far over the RDA, if not 100 percent, and that's just with the calories at below 1200!   Want more calories but know you're too full?  Start adding coconut or olive oils to your foods.  Still hungry?  Guess what, you get to eat more! :)  The only nutrient that I am semi low on is potassium, at 3349 mg, which is much higher than the average American's potassium intake.  Plus, I have plenty of omega-3's, which is wonderful for my arthritis. 43 grams of protein, which is perfect for my height, weight, and activity level. 42 grams of fat--perfect. Of that fat, only 10 grams of saturated fat (and some actually is needed for the body/heart to function properly), lots of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat (the good fats), and of course, 0 cholesterol. :)

You can totally get enough nutrition as a vegan and it doesn't have to be hard!  Feeling and looking fabulous!! :)
