A vegan what you eat in a day because I am nosy :)(14 Posts)
My day usually goes something like -
Breakfast- A bowl of bran flakes with chopped dried apricots and raisins with soya milk. A black coffee.
Snack is usually fruit and a cup of tea.
Lunch- Today was a sweet potato with steamed kale and spinach, With grated carrot and cherry tomatoes and hummus. I then sprinkle the whole thing with smoked paprika, pepper and turmeric .I usually batch cook a lentil chilli or chickpea curry for the week that I put on a potato or have with rice. Or I have leftovers or soup.
Snack - I have a ' Livias kitchen' raw millionaire bits. They are yummy 😋
Dinner tonight is 'meatballs' and spaghetti with a homemade tomato and veg sauce. I usually sprinkle a bit of vegan cheese on top !
I have an app called' daily dozen' which I try to keep on track with I recommend it to any vegan worried about whether they are getting enough vitamins and minerals.
My days can go either way, depending on how prepared I am/ how much time BF baby allows me!!
I start with porridge made with almond milk and topped with raspberries and a mix of seeds, and have a coffee with oatly barista.
Lunch is a home made soup, I always put beans/lentils/ chickpeas in for extra protein and oatcakes.
Dinner tonight was based on a Jamie Oliver weaning recipe, a lentil and veg cottage pie. It was lovely!
Snacks could be any of the following:fruit, rice cakes, bourbon, ginger nuts, raw veg, some crisps or, the holy grail, a vego bar.
I usually have something mid morning, mid afternoon and sometimes in the evening.
On a bad day, it’d be toast and peanut butter with banana for breakfast, a frozen baked potato and hummus with carrot&pepper sticks and pasta and sauce/a goodfellas vegan pizza for dinner
My day can range from lots of fruit veg and beans one day, to toast for breakfast, a baked spud and beans for lunch and then oven chips with a beyond burger and peas for evening meal with an alpro yogurt thrown in. 🤷🏻♀️. I'm not a cook from scratch person and tend to wing it from day to day.
Although I do make a mean tomato based pasta sauce from scratch (ish)
Thanks guys I'm trying to find inspiration for some new meals
Ah, sorry- I gave minimal inspiration!!
I love the Malaysian butternut squash curry from slimming eats website, again I add a tin of chickpeas or beans for extra protein.
On Sunday I made the lentil and veg shepherds pie from Jamie Oliver’s website, and will def be making it again.
I make a tomato and lentil sauce by frying onion and garlic, then adding red pepper and lentils and a tin of tomatoes, a stock cube, balsamic vinegar and a spoon of brown sugar, then blend it or leave it as it is for Bolognese.
Every Sunday I roast a huge tray of veg and chickpeas, well seasoned(I like to add cinnamon) then add to pasta/rice/couscous/or anything else for a quick lunch.
A pitta bread with hummus, grated carrot and spinach leaves is a good packed lunch if you need one.
A sheet of puff pastry, with sliced sweet potatoes then some of the roasted veg mixed with hummus is nice.
Will be back as I think of more- can’t believe my minds gone blank on what I eat each day!! Have you had a look at lazycat kitchen blog? Also my fussy eater is good for family meals.
@Thistles24 ah no it was fab thank you ! All your food sounds great I've got stuck in a rut eating the same thing , as I meal plan and Stick to a budget . I'll check the cookbook out , recently got the Bosh one too which is great but a lot of the meals require expensive ingredients! I swear all I eat is curry and stuff like that haha !
Usually- seeded toast and naturli with herbal tea
Peanut butter sandwich with fruit
Curry/ chilli/ pasta/ baked potato/ stir fry for dinner
I do probably eat too much bread.
Breakfast: I'm getting into smoothies as they are so delicious and packed with nutrients. My current favourite is frozen mango, some celery, a handful of spinach, some tropical juice, chia seeds and vegan yogurt .
Lunch: very flexible but often fried chickpeas with aubergines, spices and rice (simple but yummy), dhal, stir fry, pasta etc.
Dinner: the same as above really as I often take left overs to work
Breakfast; homemade seaasonal smoothie (enough to last 2 days) whole grated lemon and juice, whole apples or pear grated for speed. 2 tabsp ground. linseeds and the same of almonds. with half organic juice and filtered water. Using a handheld blender.
Lunch ;2 slices pure rye toast\bread with olive oil as a spread and pnut butter, also lettuce, cucumber and raw onion salad. Piece of dark or vegan chocolate
supper; homemade soup with olive oil, garlic, onion, beetroot a,nd grated carrots, herbs and I use a B12 yeast flakes (or marmite type) stock
I snack on walnuts, always green/mint tea (no milk) or coffee with soya or almond milk
Breakfast: generally just black coffee. Sometimes Jordans strawberry cereal, which is the only cereal I like. Weekends often avocado toast with dukkah.
Lunch: sandwich or salad
Dinner: depends how much time I have, and whether I'm cooking for DD (4) or not, because she doesn't like too much spice. But generally
Thai green curry
Breaded tofu shapes (plain crumb for DD, spicy for me & DP) and home made chips
Baked potato with hummus and veg
Linda McCartney sausage and mash
Vegan Society's "African stew"
Roast cauliflower with tahini yoghurt sauce

Gallons of water.
Bit of dark chocolate or packet of lentil curls, lidle crisps.
