Hello my loves and welcome back to my blog!
How are YOU today? I hope that wherever you are and whatever you’re up to, you’re remembering your beauty and your personal power, and that you are finding bliss in your day and in this moment. Sending lots of love always!
Today I’m back with another vegan what I eat in a day, and it’s actually been a while since I last shared one of these…
I always love sharing my vegan what I eat in a day posts, so it’s a surprise that this is actually only my fourth one. I definitely expect to be sharing more of these in the next couple of months as I find them so fun to write / create… it makes me consider what I’m eating more as of course I want to share my best vegan recs for you, and this is also a great way for me to branch out and try different meals as I’m inspired to share plenty of exciting food! For me, sharing my vegan what I eat in a day posts really brings me joy, and I find it inspires me to get more creative with what I’m eating… so I’m definitely looking forward to shaking it up a little in the next few weeks, I think I’m going to have to check out some recipes 😉
Quick disclaimer – I’m not a vegan (yet). I’m a vegetarian who eats vegan food 90% of the time – most of my meals are vegan and I rarely eat cheese (I’ve been gradually cutting this out more and more, though I do consume on occasion… I’d like to get it down to nil though – of course I will be having vegan cheese but that’s different because it’s vegan hehe), for me – meals are fine but it’s the snacks and treats that I’m not alternating completely just yet. However, I like to eat vegan as much as possible, so of course I love having my full vegan days – hence these posts. I’m looking forward to trying more and more vegan treats too, so stay tuned because I have a few posts planned where I review and rate different vegan treats and goodies which I’m really excited about!!!
LOL at how I said quick disclaimer and it ended up being a whole paragraph, but we ride.
Let’s get into my ‘What I Eat In A Day | Vegan Edition #4’,
What I Eat In A Day Vegan Edition #4
Breakfast – Tesco Free From Choco Snaps with Almond Milk
This is my go to vegan breakfast, I have always been a cereal lover and genuinely look forward to my bowl of cereal in the AM. I find it to be so refreshing with the cold milk and everything hehe. These Tesco Free From Choco Snaps are a great vegan cereal, obviously similar to coco pops just less chocolatey. Still so good though, I have these pretty much every day. Normally I’d have coconut milk, but this time I had almond milk because it’s what we have in the fridge atm hehe. Both are good but I’d probably recommend coconut milk more as it’s a little sweeter, so goes with sweet yummy cereal more.
Lunch – Vegan Cheese toastie with grated violife cheese, spinach, sweetcorn, vegan pesto and garlic
Honestly my favourite meal ever at the moment, I am OBSESSED with my vegan cheese toasties, in fact, I think I may have to have one after I write this. They’re so good. I like to spice up my toasties a little for the flavour so instead of just having a vegan cheese toastie (using Violife cheese which I think my girl Dannii recommended – she is the vegan Queen) I add a few other ingredients to go with and of course, to pack in that extra nutrients. I’d usually have onion with this toastie as well but at the time of making it, I wasn’t aware that I had any LOL.
Important side note: Violife cheese is the best vegan cheese I have discovered!!! I wouldn’t have it on its own cold, but it’s great for that melted cheesy addition with meals such as cheese’burgers’, spaghetti bolognaise etc etc. The perfect cooking ingredient!
Another important side note: Just putting this out there when it comes to pesto if you’re vegetarian / vegan make sure you’re getting the pesto which clearly states it’s suitable for vegetarians / vegans. I was eating pesto for months as a vegetarian without realising it contained animal derived ingredients, so of course when I found out I made sure to check going forward that what I was getting was actually vegan / veggie. Honestly, I had no idea that some pesto isn’t actually even vegetarian so I just wanted to share that, as you may not be aware just like I wasn’t! Also what I love about vegan pesto is how it’s still soooo yummy, pretty much exactly the same as non vegan / veggie pesto (from what I remember) if not a little yummier so I think even if you’re not vegetarian or vegan but you’re looking for a way to cut down on your meat consumption / want to lessen the amount of animal derived ingredients you consume then this is such a great place to start by simply switching out a product to a vegan alternative which tastes just as good, if not better!
Dinner – Spaghetti Bolognaise using plant based ‘mince’ from VivEra, with Italian herbs, tomato sauce, onion and garlic
Anyone else LOVE garlic? That flavour!!!!!! Mmmm. Spaghetti Bolognaise has always been one of my favourite meals, and I absolutely love this plant mince from VivEra, it’s so good. To be honest, I cooked this meal myself and normally my Dad cooks for me (hehe princess), I need to brush up on my cooking skills becauseee I know if my Dad made it it would have tasted so much nicer, this for me was almost a bit soggy lol I need to work on my timings more when it comes to boiling the pasta etc. Never mind, still a good meal, will be better when I learn how to cook properly x
Side note: It was ‘soggy’ because of the way I overcooked the pasta / possibly overcooked or undercooked the plant mince – not because of the actual ingredients / dish! When my Dad makes this meal for me, I enjoy it more!
Grapes – Yum!
Melted Vegan Caramelised Hazelnut Galaxy with Strawberries –
Double yum. I love the crunch this galaxy has to it, to be honest, I’ve never really had it fresh as a bar, I usually melt this or make my own little spin on this by melting the chocolate and adding strawberries, then freezing so it goes solid again, so good (okay I’ve literally done this once but I will be doing it again hehe, stay tuned for following vegan posts)
Water – of course
Orange juice – YUM!
I really enjoyed putting this post together and sharing with you my meals and treats from one of my vegan days. I am so looking forward to sharing more of these posts soon and to creating more vegan focused blog posts with recommendations and reviews! This is so much fun for me and I hope you enjoy these posts too and gain something from them whether that be food inspo / recommendations or even just discovering a new favourite vegan recommendation or learning something new.
I have created a new category on my blog for all things vegan, which you can find here.
