A day in the life – Vegan feeds!
So, I haven’t posted in a little while since being away for Christmas break. While I was travelling over break, I was asked, by someone who is considering going vegan, if I could write down exactly what I eat on a daily basis. I said “of course. BUT I figured this might be an interesting read for those who are unclear of the micro and macronutrients in a vegan diet.
Keep in mind, that I have used years of trial and error to figure out what works best for my body and the demands of my workouts. I am pretty strict with how I eat and it doesn’t really change or vary too much anymore.
So here is what I consume on a daily basis;
Granola (hand full)
Chia seeds (hand full)
- with almond/coconut milk
Quinoa/Brown rice (1/2-1cup)
Fake Chicken (Seitan) – 100g
Corn (1/2 cup)
Broccoli (1/2 cup)
Post workout Smoothie (see previous post)
Nuts (2 handfuls)
Blueberry bagel (with almond butter)
Tofurky sausage with spinach leaves in a wrap (with veggies)
1 Clif builder bar
Dinner – ALWAYS VARIES
Some form of fake meat protein. Whether it be faux fish, seitan, tofu, faux chicken etc. ‘Gardein’ is my go-to brand!!
With a cup of varied vegetables
1 Sweet potato – sometimes mashed with coconut nectar.
Complete Cookie – Lenny and Larry
(Pictured; one of my dinners. Crispy faux chicken tenders, vegan honey mustard, plantains, lima beans and peas.)
Wow, I really do eat a lot…
