Happy What I Ate Wednesday! Welcome to another day of real life vegan meals and snacks. These weekly one day vegan meal plan posts are here to inspire you and give you an idea of just what a full days worth of plant-based eating looks like. Eating vegan doesn’t have to be anything fancy or complicated, it can be fun, easy, delicious and healthy! These “what I ate” posts show exactly what I ate on any given day, real life on busy weekdays, nothing fancy, all plant-based. I hope you find them helpful.
I was not tracking macros at this time so I don’t have a macro breakdown for these meal plans. If you’re interested in macros on a plant-based diet, you can find all my posts on Flexible Dieting here.
One Day Vegan Meal Plan
This weeks daily meal plan features overnight oats, some delicious chocolate protein balls, pesto pasta and a chickpea kale spinach salad with tahini dressing.
- Quick oats made with unsweetened almond milk, 1 tbsp each of raisins and ground flax, 1 sliced banana, 1 heaping tbsp almond butter and 1 tsp of cinnamon.
- Before the gym I had 1 cup of coffee blended with 2 tsp of MCT oil and 2 tbsp of Vega protein powder.
Overnight oats have been my go-to breakfast lately. I leave for the gym around 5:30 am and then go straight to work, so I need something really quick and easy I can just grab and take with me. Overnight oats are perfect for this. Some of my favourite recipes include my brownie batter overnight oats, gingerbread overnight oats, carrot cake oats and strawberry cheesecake oats.
If you’re not a big fan of oats, tofu scrambles, breakfast burritos, chia pudding or stuffed sweet potatoes are all good vegan breakfast options. You can also check my Easy Healthy Vegan Breakfast Recipes post for a ton of other ideas.
- Pesto Pasta made with whole wheat noodles, steamed broccoli, raw purple kale and spinach tomato pesto sauce.
Lunch was a quick pesto pasta left over from dinner last night. I made a quick pesto sauce from spinach, tomatoes, basil, garlic, salt and pepper and mixed that with noodles, broccoli and purple kale. Simple and so good.
- 1 apple
- Kale Salad with spinach, arugula, diced red onion, chopped green onion, baked sweet potato, raw grated beets, chopped cucumber, chickpeas and Tahini Lemon Sauce.
Dinner is often just a bunch of random ingredients throw in a bowl and topped with tahini sauce. I like to make sweet potatoes, shredded beets and tahini dressing as part of my weekly food prep so this came together in just a few minutes.
