A Day of Simple Vegan Meals

My mom often asks me about what I actually eat, so this post is for you, Mom! It’s also for you, reader, if you’re looking to become vegan or are looking for some super simple vegan recipes. These also happen to be grain-free and can easily be made nut-free!

Ok, so, I’m pretty lazy when it comes to cooking. I mean, sometimes I like to really take the time to whip up something fancier, but for the most part I like everything easy and with only a few ingredients. So here’s an example of meals I’d eat in a day.

Breakfast: Berry Smoothie

  • 7-8 frozen strawberries
  • 1 Cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1-2 handfuls of spinach
  • 2 spoonfuls of peanut butter
  • 1 Tb chia seeds
  • 1 Tb flax seeds
  • 1.5 cups water

Throw everything in a blender and enjoy!

Lunch: Burrito Bowl

  • 1 cup of black beans
  • Salsa
  • 1/4 bell pepper
  • Seasoning: paprika, chili powder, onion powder, garlic, pepper
  • Lettuce shreds
  • 1/2 avocado

Throw everything except for the lettuce and avocado into a bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave and add mashed avocado and lettuce. If you have the time and want to saute the veggies in a pan that’s even better! And you always have the option to include a meat alternative for more deliciousness.

Dinner: Tofu and Veggie Plate

  • 1/2 pack of firm or extra firm tofu
  • About 5 white mushrooms
  • A few stalks of asparagus
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • Spices/Seasoning– onion powder, garlic, red bell pepper flakes
  • Olive oil

Start by cooking the tofu in a pan coated in olive oil. Sprinkle the spices on top. When browned on one side, flip over. Then add the mushrooms and chopped asparagus. When the tofu is browned and the mushrooms have cooked down, throw the spinach on top. Let the spinach wilt, and then remove from the heat. Eat up!

Calories: ~218

Feel free to adjust the ingredients and portion sizes to your liking! And then let me know which meal is your favorite.
