What I Ate In A Day #19 - 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

I started off my day with a toasted blueberry bagel smeared with Tofutti's Better Than Cream Cheese. This cream cheese is just incredible, and it makes for such an easy breakfast! I also had a mug of Silk's Dark Chocolate Almond Milk.

Lunch

For lunch I had a sandwich made with smashed avocado, chili flakes, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and Tofurky's Tempeh Smokey Maple Bacon slices.

Snacks

On the go I had one of Vega's Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Bars. I found the texture a bit firm, but the flavour was really good!

My boss brought in a box of ThimbleCakes Vegan Cupcakes, and I was so excited! These cupcakes had a chocolate base, a dollop of jam, and delicious fluffy frosting with a touch of chocolate on top!

Dinner

Dylan and I went out for dinner, and we decided to try out somewhere new. We ended up trying out Wei's Noodle House, on Somerset in Chinatown. The menu has quite a few vegan options, and the waiter was very helpful! Dylan and I split an order of vegetarian spring rolls to start - these were good, but definitely not the best spring rolls I've ever had.

For my main, I order the Vermicelli Bowl with three toppings (tofu, homemade vegetarian meat, and stir fried vegetables). This serving size was just massive! I ate til my heart was content, and I still had a generous serving for lunch the next day. I really love vermicelli bowls, and this one was really good. I was really intrigued by the vegetarian homemade meat on the menu, but I think it would be better described as mini falafel balls. Still good, but not exactly what I would describe as a faux meat. Next time I think I'd just stick to the tofu & veggies - this tofu was cooked to perfection!


I was far too full for dessert, so that rounds out my food diary for the day! If you live in Ottawa, I'd love to hear about your favourite vegan-friendly restaurants in the city. Dylan and I have a few places that we want to try out, but we don't eat out too often. But if there's a place that you absolutely love, I'd love to hear about it!
