What I Eat in a Day as a Vegan
for Weight loss Day 3
For Breakfast I had an oatmeal bake. You can change up the way you eat your oatmeal. You can cook it over the stove, you can microwave it, you can let it sit over night, or you can bake it. I used oats, vanilla soy milk, raisins, pumpkin spice and I baked it in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes. Then I topped with vanilla soy milk, banana, and walnuts.
Protein: oats, walnuts, soy milk
Carb: oats, raisins, banana
For lunch I had a tempeh bacon sandwich. You can buy the tempeh bacon from most grocery stores. I have been shopping from Amazon fresh because they deliver and it’s impossible for me to go grocery shopping with two little toddlers. That’s just way too much work. So I know you can get it from Amazon fresh or Whole Foods. I used tempeh bacon, whole wheat bread, avocado, tomato, lettuce and vegan mayo. You can switch it up and use 2 slices of bread, 1 slice of bread, tortilla, or use lettuce to make a lettuce wrap.
Carb: whole wheat bread
Vegetables: tomato, lettuce
Fat: avocado, vegan mayo
For a snack I sliced and pealed some mango. I added lime juice and tajin seasoning. Mango has antioxidants and is high in vitamin C.
For Dinner I combined yellow potato, spinach, mushroom and I roasted brussel sprouts and had a salad.
Brussel sprouts are high in fiber, vitamin K, and has antioxidants according to healthline.com.
Mushrooms are high in fiber, vitamin D, and has anti-inflammatory effects according to WebMD.
Potatoes are a resistant starch which may help with controlling blood sugar and produces the healthy bacteria your gut needs according to healthline.com
Vegetables: lettuce, tomato, brussel sprouts, spinach
Fat: olive oil
I had chickpea oat cake. I put the chickpeas in the food processor, then I added peanut butter and oats. I baked it in the oven at 375 for about 25 minutes. I topped it off with jelly.
I hope you found this post helpful. Maybe you have some new ideas for your vegan daily meals. There is so much nutrition in vegetables, whole grains and natural starches. These meals will leave you full and satisfied without all the extra saturated fats and cholesterol you would get from animal bi-products.
