What I Ate In A Day #20 - Vegan

Welcome back to another edition of my What I Ate In A Day series! Every Tuesday I've been sharing a days worth of food with you, and today marks the 20th installment, can you believe it? 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 Peach Smoothie Bowl! The smoothie base was made up of guava juice, bananas, peaches, and strawberries. I topped off the bowl with more peaches, raspberries, and kiwi!

Lunch

I stopped by Whole Foods to grab some food from their warm bar for lunch. I got some raspberry beets, curried tofu, and sweet potato wedges, and everything was delicious! I also had some leftover rice from the night before, but I forgot to take a photo.

Snack 

I didn't snack too much throughout the day, I just had a bowl of red grapes, which were absolutely delicious!

Dinner

My husband got a bit creative in the kitchen and made vegan Big Mac's! I have actually never had a real Big Mac, so I didn't know what I was in for. Dylan used Gardein's Ultimate Beefless Burgers, Daiya Cheddar Style Slices, pickles, shredded lettuce, onions, and a homemade Big Mac Sauce using Hellmann's vegan mayo, diced onions, French dressing, relish, vinegar, sugar, and salt. Let me tell you, this was one messy burger! Dylan made his traditionally with 2 patties, but I just stuck to one.

Dessert

I recently received these Sugarfina Sugar Lips in a recent press package from Caudalie! A lot of Sugarfina's candies are not vegan, but to my delight these didn't contain any gelatin, and they were delicious - although also extremely sour.

I hope you enjoyed having a sneak peak into what I ate in a normal day! Being vegan doesn't have to be hard or boring  - go back and look at that vegan Big Mac if you still aren't convinced ;) What's your favourite vegan dish? I'd love to get your recommendations - maybe you'll see me try it out in a future What I Ate post!
