What Do You Eat? My Vegan Day!

Every Day Guidelines

  • I try to eat at least one raw meal per day, meaning, I don’t cook my food.  This is to ensure that I am getting the maximum amount of nutrients from all sources.
  • I eat when I am hungry and stop when I am full.  I pay very close attention to my hunger cues and signals that I am done eating.
  • I eat very few processed foods.  This helps me avoid refined sugars and bad oils.
  • I drink water throughout the day.
  • I limit the amount of “fake meat” and soy products.  They are highly processed, and too much soy can interfere with hormone levels.  I do occasionally eat tempeh, which is fermented soy and healthier than tofu, etc.

My Typical Day of Food

First Thing

Breakfast

  • Oatmeal made with almond and/or coconut milk and banana with a little pure maple syrup.
  • Fruit with some coconut meat.
  • Green smoothie – I do these a couple times a week but not every day because it can get pricey!  There are some great recipes on Oh She Glows.

Lunch

Dinner

  • Roasted Root Medley
  • Veggie Stir Fry
  • Quinoa Salad
  • Pinto Beans (with taco fixins)
