“ I can't go vegan, I can't just eat salads, Its boring!”
So some of you might relate to this is if you are already eating plantbased, and those that are new to eating this way must have heard this from your friends and family. I sometimes still get this!
So in this blog, I wanted to share what I usually eat.
You can follow me on Instagram where I always post my meals.
I usually start my day with 500ml of lemon water and then celery juice, so I don't have an early breakfast. Around 11 am I would have either oats with almond milk, banana, and berries, topped with ground flax and chia seeds, cinnamon.
Another favorite of mine is mixed beans yum! I love having beans with mushrooms and capsicums, and I'll have that with toast.
If I am in a hurry, I will prepare some overnight oats the day before and just grab that in the morning and add some fruits.
If you think you will miss your eggs, try some curried scrambled tofu, here is the recipe
Other options I have are:
Banana and oats pancakes

Now that summer is here, I prefer cold lunches like a veggie wrap with hummus, roasted potatoes, and cauliflower, salad, or some couscous with roasted vegetables.
Other lunches I enjoy having
Plantbased Shephard's pie, get the recipe here
Stir fry noodles with tofu and vegetables
Creamy pasta with mushrooms and spinach, get the recipe here
Couscous with roasted vegetables
Rice with vegetables
Tacos with Mexican rice and beans
Spicy Spanish rice with beans and vegetables
I could go on and on….
I like to keep it light so I have either a wrap or a big bowl of salad with falafel.
Other options I enjoy having
Pasta salad with pesto, sundried tomatoes and arugula(rocket)
Sweet potato fries
Salad and hummus
I do have a sweet tooth, so I always have some sort of sweet thing around!
My favourites are:
Vanilla chia pudding
Blueberry crumble pie
Berry smoothie bowl
Booja Booja ice creams (My favourite is the vanilla and the caramel pecan praline! Yummy!)
Homemade berry icecream
Oreo Ice cream, recipe here
Snacks are great to have around for the days you are out and about, or between meals.
Mine usually are:
Homemade protein bars (nuts, dates,oats)
Dates with Tahini (These together are amazing!)
Feel lighter, healthier, and empowered.
Get ready to live your best life, and live it to the fullest.
