What Vegans Eat: A Week of Vegan Eats
Well folks, we have officially made it to Friday and to the end of the work week (for most of us, anyways)!! 🙂 Is anyone else as excited about this as I am? Of course it is not only Friday, it is also day #5 of my week of vegan eats. Let’s see what tasty plant-based foods I have been eating, shall we?
Day 5: Thursday, March 28, 2013
Thursday’s breakfast might look familiar (what can I say…I am a creature of habit!). I ate a bowl of Kashi Go Lean, Arrowhead Mills Puffed Corn, and Cascadian Farms Cinnamon Crunch cereals with unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
On the side I ate a cute little mandarin orange.
I ate some green grapes (unpictured) at a work meeting, and then followed them up with a perfectly ripe banana.
Lunch consisted of a bowl of leftover Irish Lentil soup from Tuesday night topped with crumbled saltine crackers.
I followed up my soup with a crisp and sweet Pink Lady apple.
Before my workout I snacked on some Bombay Curry kale chips. If you have never tried kale chips before you really need to. Not only are they delicious, but they are an incredibly healthy “superfood.” One serving of these kale chips contains 6 grams of protein, and they are a great source of Vitamins A, K, and C, Iron, Calcium, Manganese, Copper, Potassium, and fiber.
For dinner I fixed up a quick meal of tempeh and black bean tacos (recipe to come). Not only was this a fast and easy meal, but it was darn tasty!
Thursday night’s snacks consisted of celery, carrots, and roasted radish chips with hummus…
…fresh blueberries (these had seen better days), strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries…
…and some original Pop Chips. I love to pair my fruit with a salty snack in order to balance out the sweetness.
That’s it for day #5 of my vegan eats. The end of the week is near and, to be honest, I cannot wait to eat some eggs! 😉
