Another week, another what I ate Wednesday. Every Wednesday I share a days worth of real life vegan meals and snacks. You can view all of the posts here. These meal plans how exactly what I eat on a busy workday. They’re here to show you how easy plant-based eating can be.
Each week, I do some food prep on Sundays to make things a little easier during the week but a lot of time these meals are thrown together on the fly. I hope they inspire you to craete your own days worth of vegan meals.
One Day Vegan Meal Plan
This weeks day of vegan eats features chia pudding, tostadas, veggie korma, lentil wraps and chocolate peanut butter cups.
- Chia Pudding: Chia seeds, strawberries, ground flax, natural organic peanut butter and a pinch of maple syrup
- Coffee with Almond Milk
I love chia pudding because all I need to make it is water and whatever I’d like to add in. Last week it was peanut butter and blueberries, this week flax and strawberries. It’s perfect because I can throw it in a container before the gym and post-workout it’s ready to go! Delicious!

- Whole wheat tortilla with grated zucchini, lentils and lettuce
For my morning snack, I used up some of the leftover ingredients from the tostadas last night and made a warp with grated zucchini, spinach and lentils.
These were leftover from dinner last night and I was looking forward to them all morning. They feature tortillas, tomatillo sauce, lentils and veggies and are so filling and delicious!
Afternoon Snack (Pre-Workout)
- 1 Banana
Afternoon Snack Post-Workout
- Vega Performance Protein
- 1/2 a baked sweet potato
For today’s snack I had 1 serving of Vega protein mixed with water and a baked sweet potato sea salt, pepper and a dash of cinnamon. So simple and delicious and a great way to re-fuel after a workout.
- Vegan Vegetable Korma with Brown Rice
I based this dish off of this recipe for Weeknight Vegetable Korma . This wasn’t the best dinner choice for a hot summer day but it was definitely delicious! I adjusted the quantities slightly, adding a little extra spice and veggies but I more or less followed along. It had potato, chickpeas, broccoli, cauliflower, carrot, peas, onion, coconut milk and an awesome combination of Indian spices.
Reese Peanut Butter Cups were always my favourite chocolate bar and these vegan chocolate peanut butter cups come close enough for me. They’re so easy to make and right now I’m just trying to avoid a second (or third, or fourth) trip to the kitchen to grab another.
