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
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.
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 :).
