How many calories should I eat for weight loss? I eat almost exactly like you, but I've just not seen weight loss. Thanks :)

This is going to depend on your body type/size, metabolism, level of activity, etc etc - I have no idea what your body needs nor am I qualified to give out that kind of information even if I was!

what is a stimulant? referring to how you said maca is a stimulant? does that mean it's bad for you or...?

Ya know I don’t actually think it’s technically a stimulant in the way caffeine is but maca is definitely energizing - at least for me if I have too much I get jittery the same way I do with caffeine. Not bad for you, I just meant you could overdo it especially if you’re sensitive to stuff like caffeine (I am).

I'm all confused, I have just eaten sooooo many (too many) wasabi peas, salted pistachios and sweet cinnamon popcorn with my friends and I feel sick :( at first I thought it was the sociable thing to do, but now I feel like I have betrayed myself and my own eating preferences, and I don't know what to do!

The only thing you can do is move on! It happened, I bet that food was delicious. You did not betray yourself, I promise. Do I betray myself every time I have some cheese or fish or a bag of tortilla chips or too much wine? Maybe I don’t stay true to certain health principles I believe are the best, but we are always, always more/bigger than the food we eat.

Hi Alexandra! Tomorrow I'm on a trip the whole day, what food would you take along? Can you give me some ideas? It's always difficult for me because there's no possibility to keep my food fresh and I don't want to buy something.

Hmmmm apples, oranges, bananas, toast with avocado, dates or date rolls, carrots, celery, roasted chickpeas, air popped popcorn. Most of that is going to be fine not refrigerated unless you’re going to be out in the hot sun all day. You could put it in a lunch bag with ice packs too.

You’re welcome!

Thank you for your help with meal planning! Can you make a plan for travelling too?

Ermm I don’t really travel very much so I can’t help you there plus the planning for a roadtrip vs traveling to another country is going to be totally different so I’m not sure where I would even start. Sorry!

how much liquid do you put in your smoothies on average? and do you use water / almond milk? and is adding more liquid into a smoothie lose the flavour of whatever you put in it? thanks!

I use water or almond milk or both. I’m not sure how much I use, maybe 2 cups? It’s just personal preference so it’s up to you. Sure a ton of water or almond milk will dilute the flavor a little but again some people like thinner smoothies, just personal preference.

why do you want to decrease your fruit intake?

To see if I feel better eating more vegetables, grains and legumes. I’ve been so busy lately I haven’t had time to eat the same quantity of fruit as I used to so I’m looking at ways to change my eating a little that works best for my life.

When you buy almond milk instead of making it, what do you buy? Like what brand, sweetened/unsweetened, plain/chocolate/vanilla, etc? Thanks!

SILK unsweetened! I’ve read bad things about something they put into Almond Breeze so I stopped buying that brand. I should still make my own.
