What I Eat In A Day | Plant Based ​Lifestyle

I have been plant based for roughly 4 months now and transitioned into it from being Vegan for a year. I have my moments where I indulge. Overall my diet is plant based with mostly fruits and vegetables. I am finding new ways to eat with this lifestyle and I love it! If you rely heavily on meat being the main component of your meals, then it can make you unsure of where to start and what to do. This lifestyle opens the door to new possibilities and it has been an eye-opening journey. This PART 3 of my “What I Eat In A Day”, but you can check out PART 1 and PART 2 after you are done scrolling!

Breakfast

Unfortunately, we were down to one banana on this day. So, I decided to split it between the both of us. Our son loves eating them too! I fried a couple of Gardein sausage patties in my cast iron and sauteed the spinach after they were crispy on the outside. I used Krusteaz Belgium waffle mix for our waffles. Instead of using an egg, I made a flax egg with 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds and 2 tablespoons of water. The blueberries are frozen because I can use them to eat as a snack, a side item to a dish or in a smoothie.

Lunch

Y’all these tacos were the bomb.com! Inside of them are fajitas, corn, black beans, avocado and vegan slaw with red cabbage and carrots. Instead of lettuce, I put spinach on the side because the lettuce wasn’t going to give the nutritional content that I wanted out of this meal. I buy other greens, but I really use the kale for our juices mostly. These were so good! I plan to make them again very soon because my fiancée loves Mexican inspired food. They took about 15 minutes from start to finish!

Dinner

This is one of my go-to meals for when I want to have a dinner that will last us for a couple of days. I accompany my Vegan Southwestern Chili with cornbread, but this time I made it with almond “cheddar” cheese and nutritional yeast for the cheesy flavor. This was my first time topping the chili with dairy-free sour cream. The sour cream helped to cut a little of the spice from the red pepper flakes and the acidity from the tomatoes. I recommend eating it with the sour cream for sure.

  1. I love a good taco! Mexican food is my top fav. I really enjoy chili too tho and that cornbread is looking real good. I made avocado turkey chili a few weeks ago and couldn’t get enough. I haven’t had meat in a week now. I decided to do plant based. I haven’t decided if I’ll eat meat on occasion yet.

    1. If a person doesn’t love a good taco they can’t be trusted sis lol. Ohh that’s awesome! Remember, plant based is all about HEALTH. Don’t beat yourself up if you indulge every once in awhile, since you didn’t wean yourself off.
