(one's) day on a plate

(one's) day on a plate

A complete account of one's daily dietary intake, habits, or rituals. This is my day on a plate: a smoothie for breakfast made with unsweetened yogurt and five types of fruit; a salad for lunch with broiled chicken breast; a mid-afternoon snack of nuts; and, finally, wholegrain pasta with tomato sauce and lean ground turkey. It might sound boring to some, but it keeps me feeling tip-top every single day. I'm definitely not a foodie, so my day on a plate is pretty unexciting: cereal for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, and some sort of protein for dinner. After my heart attack, I had to tell my doctor my day on a plate and make a lot of healthier substitutions.
