What I Ate In A Day #12 - Vegan

Hello hello! I'm back with another What I Ate In A Day post, which I've been sharing with you every Tuesday (you can check out last weeks' post here)! I follow a vegan diet/lifestyle, so all of the foods that I'll be showing you today are meat, dairy, and egg free. As always, I drink a ton of water throughout the day!

Breakfast

For breakfast I had a bowl of Raisin Bran cereal with Silk's Vanilla Almond Milk & diced fresh strawberries. I also had an orange, because they're just so delicious!

Lunch

I had made a big pot of udon soup the night before, so for lunch I turned to the fridge for leftovers! This was my first time making udon soup, but it was actually really easy. I just threw in any veggies that I had in the fridge, which this time included carrots, broccoli, bean sprouts, and nori (seaweed). The soup base was just veggie broth, soy sauce, & a splash of sesame oil, and then of course you need udon noodles! This really was delicious, and I can definitely see this recipe making it's way into my regular rotation!

Snacks 

I saw a recipe on Pinterest for a veganized Wendy's Frosty, and I decided to give it a go! The recipe was pretty simple - almond milk, a banana, cocoa powder, chia seeds, and ice cubes. Unfortunately, I have to say that this was just okay - nothing special at all, and I don't think that I'll be making it again.

A little bit later I also had a granny smith apple and peanut butter, so yummy!

Dinner 

Stir-fries are one of my go-to dinners, because they're so easy to whip together after work when you're just wanting something quick! For this stir fry I started out with a heap of white rice, and then cooked up some veggies - onion, garlic, carrots, corn, edamame, broccoli, water chestnuts, and some baked tofu. I then made some homemade peanut sauce, which I'm completely obsessed with! I definitely went back for seconds ;)

I was so full from dinner that I didn't end up having any dessert, which is pretty abnormal for me and my sweet tooth! 

Well there you have it! Another documented day of vegan eating! I hope you've gotten some food inspiration from this post, or at least some kind of idea of what a typical vegan eats in a normal day. Remember to check back next Tuesday for another What I Ate In A Day post!

    2. Not that I know of but I just use rice noodles for pretty much everything that I could use udon for so I haven't looked too much, but they aren't the same! (But I love them with peanut sauce haha so I will look forward to your recipe!)
