(one's) day on a plate

A categorical 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; and midday snack of nuts; and finally, wholegrain pasta with a tomato-based sauce with lean ground turkey. It might sound boring to some, but it keeps me feeling tip-top every single day. You've been given every opportunity in life on a silver platter, but still you whine and complain when things don't go exactly the way you want.
