What I eat in a day as a vegan for weight loss Day 1
I will take you through my day of what I eat daily as a vegan. This is what I ate to lose weight and I continue to decrease my body fat percentage on this diet. You won’t have to count calories. Just try and eat more plant based and less processed foods. Journal what you eat daily to see what is working for your unique needs.
I had oatmeal with unsweetened almond milk, cinnamon, agave syrup, raisins, and chopped walnuts with a cup of coffee. Oatmeal has many benefits. It’s high in fiber so it will keep you regular and fill you up. It also has heart benefits and antioxidants. Cinnamon aids in weight loss. Dried fruit are good for iron. Walnuts are good for your omega-3’s. Sometimes I will use a sweet vanilla soy milk and not add any other sugar.

For a sweet snack:
I like to eat something sweet everyday. I don’t feel satisfied if I don’t have sweets. So I ate my homemade granola and chia pudding.
The granola has oats baked with peanut butter, salt, molasses, raisins, and chopped walnuts.
The chia pudding is chia seeds soaked in lite coconut milk, left over night.
