Marni’s Food Guide – A Day in the Life of Me

As a nutritionist and healthy food advocate, the most common question I get is, “What  do you eat every day, Marni?!”

Today, I am going to spill the beans, literally. Dish out the goods on what a day looks like for me from breakfast through dinner with all the in-betweens.

First off, I’m going to start by sharing that I am human, and I believe in moderation and balance. With that being said, some may still call me “extreme”, as no matter what, there are some foods I will not allow into my diet, such as meat, dairy, seafood, white sugar, processed foods. There are others that I am more flexible with, but you’ll have to read on   to find out! At the end of the day, I eat a pretty darn clean vegetarian, wheat free diet that   is loaded with superfoods, nutrients, enzymes, protein, fiber, and healthy fats. Yes, it really is easy to be healthy.

So here goes!

Pre Breakfast

I usually start my day with either a glass of water (sometimes with lemon) or a green juice. However, if I plan on working out early, I’ll always have Vega Sport with Ormus Supergreens with coconut or maple water. It’s my absolute favorite morning elixir. Whether it’s lemon water or my elixir, these tasty morning drinks start my day. It not only gets me moving, but get’s things moving internally (if you know what I mean).


  • Usually a smoothie, bulked up with superfoods and greens, then topped with some granola, bee pollen or goji berries. You can even transform it into a smoothie bowl!
  • Oatmeal with cinnamon, figs, raisins, almond butter & rice milk
  • Chia cereal porridge
  • Sprouted spelt bread with almond butter
  • Homemade carrot ginger muffin with a Sun Warrior shake (1 scoop Sun Warrior + rice or almond milk)
  • Vegetable juice (kale, celery, cucumber, apple, ginger)


  • Trail mix
  • Apple with almond butter
  • Vegan protein smoothie or chocolate elixir
  • Sun Warrior with rice milk
  • Homemade muffin, loaf or treat with nut butter
  • Dark raw or vegan chocolate
  • Vegetable juice
  • Or any of these treats that come in convenient packages

Lunch and or Dinner:

Marni’s Fast Food

  • Veggie Burger either homemade (from freezer) or from Sunshine Burger on salad, wrap or grain
  • Nori Roll with veggies
  • Leftovers from dinner or lunch

Dining Out
It’s not often, but if I’m not cooking I can be found at one of these restaurants in Toronto:

Just so you know…

I believe in the 80/20 rule. There has got to be some balance in your life. I feel if that if you are eating well most days of the week (80% of the time) then you’re on your way towards healthy eating. My 20 is not typical. It’s usually a dessert from Sweets From the Earth or some Coconut Bliss Ice Cream. Delicious, organic, and nothing to feel super-guilty about. After all, it’s not like I’m going to give into a cheeseburger and french fries!

Let your 20% be just for you – whether it be that something you crave or leaving room for eating out at dinner – things do happen to come up! Just remember to stay on top of yourself and your foods 80% of the week, so the majority of the time, your body is being nourished with healthy ingredients.

    Thank you for sharing this, Marni! I also do the 80/20 rule. If it were 100 perfect of planned out, totally clean yet sometimes not-so-exciting meals I was eating every day, I think life would be really dull and not really worth living! And indeed when you do “splurge”, you can do it guilt free with healthy desserts or vegan “junk food” that you appreciate in moderation.

  2. Tracy says:

    We eat the same way, my 20% is my vegetarian Indian Resturant. I’m still in shock about Sunshine Burgers, they’re really yummy. U should ask Glowing Natural to send you samples of their brown rice protein. It’s Certified Organic & non-gmo verified.

    Marni, thank you for this daily breakdown. The “day in the life” helps me to see these ideas in action!

purity fit tip

Plant-based foods are alkaline-forming, which means they create less acidity in the body. As an added bonus, they also neutralize existing acid! When you work out and train, you are already pushing the acidity limits in your body, so it's important flush it out with plant-based foods. Some of my favourite detoxifying foods that I use in my classes are broccoli, seaweed, and avocados.
