What Vegans Eat: A Week of Vegan Eats

Happy Saturday!!  We have finally made it to the weekend :).  And…we have almost made it to the end of my vegan week of eats.  I have one more day of eating vegan (today), and two more vegan eats posts for you.  So let’s get down to it.  Here is what I ate during my vegan day yesterday:

Day #6: Friday, March 29, 2013


vegan week day 6 2






One of my go-to breakfasts is toast with nut butter.  It seriously does not get much better than warm and melted nut butter on crispy, perfectly toasted bread.  On Friday morning I ate two pieces of toasted whole wheat bread.  One slice I smeared with Trader Joe’s cranberry apple butter, and the other I slathered in Trader Joe’s unsalted crunchy almond butter.  I also sprinkled this piece with a few dashes of cinnamon.

I also ate a big bowl of fresh fruit, consisting of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and one mandarin orange.

Mid-Morning Snack

Partway through the morning I ate a banana.  I forgot to take a picture, but I am fairly certain that you know the drill by now ;).

For lunch, I made a tempeh and black bean taco salad using my leftover taco-seasoned tempeh and black beans from Thursday night.  My taco salad consisted of Romaine lettuce, onions, taco-seasoned tempeh and black beans, tomatoes, and salsa.  It was really good!

I also ate a Gala apple on the side.

Before heading out on a bike ride, I snacked on a package of Trader Joe’s whole natural almonds.  Such a tasty and protein-rich treat!

Last night’s dinner was a Spicy Buddha Bowl made from black beans, roasted sweet potatoes and cauliflower, zucchini, red peppers, and green cabbage.  I will be posting this recipe next week, and let me tell you…it is a good one!

And the vegetable plate makes its sixth appearance of the week.  What did I tell you?  This is one of my go-to snacks and an awesome way to get in more vegetables near the end of the day.  Friday night’s plate consisted of green peas, celery, carrots, and hummus.

I also ate a small dish of fresh cantaloupe…

…paired with air-popped popcorn.  I sprayed my popcorn with a little bit of olive oil spray, and sprinkled it with fine sea salt, nutritional yeast (for a cheese flavor), and a few dashes of curry powder.  Let me tell you, I had no idea that vegan popcorn could be SO good!

And that is it for the sixth day of vegan eats!  Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for a recap of my final day of vegan eats :).

    Oooh, cranberry apple butter sounds amazing, I'll have to try to recreate that for a twist on PB&J! And I love nooch on popcorn, it's even better than regular non-vegan popcorn.

      This is the first time that I have ever put nutritional yeast on my popcorn, but let me tell you..it will not be the last! :)

    It's great how you went vegan for a week! I'm really impressed. I loove toast. Nut butter is life! Black bean salad is so good. A great way to get protein with no meat!
