WHAT I EAT ON A WHOLE FOOD PLANT-BASED DIET



“ 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.



Breakfast



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

French toast

Blueberry muffins

Chickpea Omelet

Berries

Overnight oats
