Welcome to my What I Ate Wednesday Post Week 9. I share these posts every Wednesday to show a day of vegan eating in real life. I hope these one day vegan meal plan posts help inspire you and give you some ideas for creating a days worth of plant-based food that’s easy, healthy and delicious.

A lot of the time I don’t cook or create meals using recipes, so these are impromptu meals I quickly throw together. Most weeks I do food prep on Sundays and you can read more about that in my Vegan Food Prep and Vegan Meal Planning posts. I’ve also share a number of weekly meal prep posts and you can find all of those here.

One Day Vegan Meal Plan

This was one very delicious day. I started off with overnight oats made with pineapple and coconut, snacked on whole foods like fruit and nuts, had red pepper pesto pasta for lunch and a veggie burrito for dinner.


Yum, these are good. I was thinking about them during my whole morning workout. I made them the night before by just adding everything to a jar and placing it in the fridge overnight. That way they’re ready to grab and go in the morning.

This was leftover from dinner last night and I was looking forward to it all morning! I made pesto with homemade roasted red pepper then added it to brown rice pasta and kale. Quick, easy and so good.

These were good! I added black beans, zucchini, lettuce, vegan cheese, bell peppers and salsa and wrapped it all up in a tortilla. It was the perfect quick and easy dinner to end a busy day.
