WIAW: December 11, 2013

in Other

People are often surprised when I tell them that I follow a mostly plant-based (vegan) diet.  I am frequently asked, “what do you eat?”  Many often assume that all I eat are salads, raw vegetables, and fruits.  Since adopting this lifestyle, I have come to know that is far from true.  In fact, with a little bit of creativity and some guts (to try new things!), a plant-based diet is darn delicious.  Let’s take a look at my Saturday eats so that you can see just how simple, yet delicious a vegan diet can be.

What I Ate Wednesday Saturday

The first part of my breakfast was drank prior to go to the gym for my workout: a green smoothie with almond milk, Vega One chocolate protein powder, 1/3 frozen banana, frozen peach slices, frozen blueberries, and LOTS of spinach.  I am hooked on these.  Who knew getting in greens could be so tasty?

After the gym and a hot shower I ate a batch of oatmeal raisin pancakes (recipe to come) topped with melted blackberry jam and peanut butter.  These were awesome!

Lunch was sauteed sesame tofu dipped in barbecue sauce.  I seriously think I could drink barbecue sauce right out of the bottle ;).  On the side I ate homemade coleslaw that I made with my Nasoya vegan mayo.

Afternoon snackage consisted of Blue Diamond coconut almonds (seriously awesome!) and raisins.

I also ate my favorite weekend afternoon snack: a sliced apple dipped in nut butter.  On this day I chose some crunchy Nuttso.

A new-to-me flavor.  It is good, but I still prefer the cola flavor.


twice baked pizza potato 1

Dinner was a twice-baked pizza sweet potato (recipe soon!).  Combining two of my favorite foods (pizza and sweet potatoes) was definitely gooood thinking at its finest!


My evening snacks consisted of:

WIAW general

See?  A full day of healthy, protein-packed, delicious, varietal, VEGAN eats!  Oh, and plenty of future recipe teasers.  Please forgive me ;).
