Welcome back to What I Ate Wednesday. These one day vegan meal plan posts show a full-day worth of plant-based eating in real life on a busy work day. These meals and snacks are often made on-the-fly or they’re made ahead of time as part of my weekly food prep. These posts are here to show you how simple plant-based eating can be and inspire you to create your own days worth of vegan meals.
One Day Vegan Meal Plan
This weeks day of vegan eats is creative and delicious. It features a delicious Thai red curry, flax and almond butter overnight oats, awesome hummus wraps and a yummy banana and peanut butter bowl for dessert.
- Big Glass of Lemon Water
- Almond Misto
As usual, I started the day with a glass of lemon water, which is my favourite thing to do first thing in the morning, then I grabbed a coffee on the way to the gym.
- Oats with Almond Milk, Ground Flax, Strawberries, Almond Butter
Once again, it was oats for breakfast today. They’re actually quicker for me to make than a smoothie, plus I don’t have to wash all the blender pieces this way. They only take a minute to prep and the flavour options are endless.
I made these overnight oats with 1/2 cup of oats, 1 cup of almond milk, 1 tbsp of ground flax, a handful of chopped strawberries and 2 tbsp of almond butter. To make them, just mix all that up in a container and place in the fridge for a few hours up to overnight.
Check out some of my favourite overnight oat recipes:
- Brownie Batter Overnight Protein Oats
- Chia Seed Gingerbread Overnight Oats
- Carrot Cake Overnight Protein Oats
- 1 Banana
I know my snacks aren’t very exciting but with limited time during weekdays, I usually choose whole food snacks. They’re cheap, healthy, full of vitamins and the perfect on-the-go healthy food.
Lunch was leftover red curry from dinner last night. This is my go-to recipe for red curry. It tastes amazing and is so easy to make. I had it with zucchini noodles and added some peanuts and plenty of fresh lime juice.
Afternoon Snack #1
- 1 Apple with Almond Butter
Afternoon Snack #2
- Hemp Protein and Strawberry Smoothie
- Hummus Swiss Chard Wraps with Carrot, Cilantro, Cucumber and Avocado
To make these wraps, I grated carrots, sliced cucumbers and avocado, chopped cilantro and green onion and then stuffed it all inside a big swiss chard leaf layered with hummus. They were incredibly filling and took all of about 10 minutes to throw together! I ate two for dinner and made the rest into a salad for lunch tomorrow.
- Yummy bowl with banana, strawberry, date, cocoa, cinnamon, almond butter, pecans and a drizzle of maple syrup.
