As a break from my salad-themed Vegan Mofo posts, I thought I would join the What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) party (for the first time ever- hooray!).
Without further ado, here are my eats from yesterday. As a side note- I am not vegan myself, but as this is for Vegan Mofo, all eats yesterday were vegan. Enjoy, fellow food oglers!
My day started off with a large mug of TJ’s Pumpkin Spice coffee.
For breakfast, I had a chocolate peppermint smoothie in a bowl, topped with almond butter and raw oats. In the smoothie was watermelon, banana, blueberries, 2 tbsp cocoa powder, chocolate Sunwarrior protein powder, mint extract and hemp milk.
For lunch, I had a massive salad with carrot-ginger dressing (recipe to come soon!). Salad is topped with cukes, tomatoes, butternut squash, black beans and a bit of lentils.
And some cranberry kombucha! Kombucha rocks my socks.
Around 2 pm, I paused work for a few handfuls of ‘Simply the Best’ trail mix- from Trader Joe’s, as well.
Dinner was a leftover butternut squash-risotto-kale dish with romesco sauce (recipe also to come! Even though it is not looking its most picturesque here, I promise it is lip-smackin’ good). I piled on some lentils, too, and had some leftover sliced heirloom tomato with olive oil and sherry vinegar.
Around 8pm, I whipped up a bowl of banana oatmeal and topped it with vegan chocolate chips and a big dollop of peanut butter. Mmmm. All warm and melty.
And that’s all she wrote, folks! Hoped you liked the glimpse into a [vegan] day in my life.
Gahhh I admire your vegan meals, I don't know if I could do it! Also, KOMBUCHAAAAAA! It scares me… ive never had it but i bought some to try and its just sitting in my fridge – FAIL. You've reminded me to try it soon 🙂
This post has reminded me that I seriously need to get to TJs immediately to get my snack on with pumpkin stuff. I'm glad I found your blog. I love getting vegan meal ideas from my job.
Oh my gosh- you should go pop that baby open! Kombucha tastes like a fizzy, slighty acidic juice drink. I think you'll like it 🙂 I am not vegan myself, but I don't find it too difficult to incorporate many vegan meals into my daily life. The key (at least for me) is using nuts in wild and crazy ways, like in the Romesco sauce that I ate over my dinner. Super creamy and luxurious without heavy cream. Ahh nuts ❤
Yeah, TJ's is finally releasing the cracken that is pumpkin season! I was there this past weekend and it was pumpkin galore. Thank you for commenting! I love connecting with other bloggers and will have to check out your blog 😀
dang!! your eats look super beautiful, super colorful, super delicious, super nutritious… and generally awesome! I want to come eat with you! Plus, I love when non-vegans participate in VeganMoFo! ❤
Hi Amey, thanks so much for the kind words, and for featuring me on the Vegan Mofo website! My jaw dropped to see my Carrot-Ginger Dressing featured!
I love eating vegan foods and creating vegan recipes. I feel that creating vegan recipes allows you to use such interesting and fun ingredients (and be kind to the animals and planet at the same time)- so I am all for it. Vegan Mofo has been such a great experience- so thank you for organizing it!
all of your eats look amazing!
Thank you 🙂
