What Vegans Eats: A Week of Vegan Eats
Day 3: Tuesday, March 26, 2013
Not only is it Day #3 of my vegan week, but it is also…
…What I Ate Wednesday!! (though technically these eats are from Tuesday ;))
Let’s see how I did in both the vegan world and the GREEN world!
Breakfast & Mid-Morning Snack
So this might look familiar, but what can I say, I love cereal! For breakfast I ate a bowl of Kashi Go Lean, Arrowhead Mills Puffed Corn, and Cascadian Farms Cinnamon Crunch cereals with unsweetened almond milk. On the side I had a cute little Cutie!
My mid-morning snack: the banana.
On my lunch break I ate leftover spaghetti squash “pasta” with pasta sauce, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, roasted broccoli and zucchini, and a few meatless “meatballs” from Trader Joe’s.
I also ate a serving of peas (please excuse the icky Tupperware container). Yay for five grams of protein in just this one serving!
My after work snack was a sliced Golden Delicious apple dipped in PB2 peanut butter.
For dinner I prepared The Smart Kitchen’s Irish Lentil Stew. I cut the recipe in half and followed it exactly, minus having to using an onion in place of the pearled onions since zero grocery stores seem to carry them around here! I topped my soup with crumbled saltine crackers.
I cooked up a side of butternut squash to accompany my soup.
In the evening I snacked on another vegetable plate consisting of celery, baby carrots, roasted radish chips, and hummus.
I finished out the night with a bowl of fresh cantaloupe, strawberries, and green grapes…
…and a bag of microwave kettle corn popcorn. I just bought an air popper popcorn maker (which is awesome, by the way!), so I am trying to use up all of my not-so-good for you microwaveable bags.
It sure was a delicious day of vegan eats!
And my green count for the day? 7!! (broccoli, zucchini, and peas at lunch; apple; green cabbage in the stew; celery; green grapes)
