Here we are again for another edition of What I Ate Wednesday. These weekly, one day meal plan posts serve to inspire you if you’re looking for ideas for creating plant-based meals. The daily meal pans show what works for me on a busy weekday. We’re all very different so how I eat might not be what’s best for you but I still hope you can find something useful here or at least get an idea of what a full day of plant-based eating looks like.

One Day Vegan Meal Plan

This weeks meal plan features my usual oats for breakfast plus a delicious tofu curry, chickpea veggie burger and spicy avocado for a snack.

Upon Rising

  • Warm water with lemon and apple cider vinegar

Most mornings I start the day with a cup of warm lemon water, but some days I take it up a notch with 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar to wake up my digestive system.

Breakfast/Post-Workout

  • 1/2 cup quick oats, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 banana, 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 tbsp dried cranberries, 2 tbsp ground flax, 1 serving Vega protein
  • Coffee with almond milk

What else is new? Chia seed oats for breakfast. This weeks had cranberries, flax, vanilla protein and banana. To make them, just mix it all up in a container and stick it in the fridge overnight. They’ll be ready to eat in the morning.

Overnight Chia Oats
Morning Drink

  • Goji Berry Lemon Tea

Time for another refreshing and delicious lemon drink! This is another daily favorite of mine, it’s just warm water, lemon and about 1 tbsp of goji berries. This is a great alternative to caffeinated beverages and the plump, juicy berries are so tasty!

Lunch

This delicious dish was leftover from dinner last night. It’s easy to make, loaded with flavour and super filling.

Vegan Tofu and Cashew Fried Rice

Afternoon Snack

  • 1/2 an avocado with Sirracha, lime, salt and pepper
  • Yoso Coconut Almond Yogurt

Avocado with Lime, Sirracha, Salt and Pepper

Dinner

  • Chickpea Veggie Burgers

These burgers are my favourite. They have oats, ground flax, red pepper, green and red onion, garlic, cilantro and peanut butter. They were really easy to make, completely vegan and hold together well on the BBQ.  I had mine on a bun with lettuce, tomato, onion and avocado.
