Lately I’ve found myself lost in YouTube videos. I’ve never really been much into tv series (it’s seriously difficult to get me hooked on anything with the exception of Breaking Bad!) but YouTube — food related videos specifically — are my soft spot. Especially What I Eat In a Day -type of videos keep me clicking like a maniac.
I love seeing how differently people eat and live, especially on a plant-based diet. It’s really easy to get stuck with your own routines and ways of cooking and eating. Food videos are a great source of inspiration and just by watching them you’ll feel rich in new ideas. If anyone ever suspects that plant-based food is boring or “always the same thing” just tell them to hit YouTube. World will never look the same again.
So as you may have guessed from the title, today’s post is all about my version of WIEIAD. It was so much fun making it, although trust me, A LOT more stressful than you’d first guess. It takes several hours to film the stuff, nevertheless the editing part! And despite this video being all shot from a single angle, trust me, it took me hours. (That might also be due to my editing program crashing around every 20 minutes and the autosave being a totally unreliable douchebag.)
Also, before jumping to the video, a quick disclaimer: I did not shoot any of my snacks. I FORGOT. So take this with a grain of salt — I do eat wayy more than this per day. I love my snacks and I eat fruit, nuts and peanut butter every. Single. Day. Oh well, I promise to get them on the video next time. Now that’s over the way, let’s dive into it. Go give it a thumbs up if you liked it and for a quick access to all my future vids, subscribe the channel. :)
