Today, I’ve got a new What I Eat in a Day for you! I recently decided to go “vegan at home” and I’ve got some simple plant-based recipes which I would like to share with you. The reason why I decided to go only on a “vegan at home” diet instead of a fully plant-based diet is because my family is one of those people you just can’t persuade to accept the vegan diet. And therefore, whenever I would go back to the Czech Republic to visit my family it would be a kind of a struggle because I would have not much to eat. Also, whenever I go out I can just stick to vegetarian diet instead of stressing about having nothing to eat. So, let’s get into it!
Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. Even if the day is promised to be not so great I’m excited for my breakfast which has recently been a bowl of porridge. I just simply mash a banana, add some oats, a teaspoon of cocoa powder and pour some boiling water over it. It’s done within three minutes. To top it off and make it prettier, I add some walnuts and frozen mango chunks. And that’s it! Simple, delicious and filling.
I’m pretty much a queen of simple and lazy recipes. Hunger always just kicks in and I need something fast to satisfy it and not to cook something for other 20 minutes. So, I just toasted two slices of wholemeal bread (well, I went a bit overboard with the toasting). I put some sugar-free baked beans on top of one and on the other one I put some tofu scramble which I made the day before. It was marinated in lemon juice with turmeric and ginger and it was surprisingly really yummy. On the side, I put some sliced courgette.
For my afternoon snack, I had an orange. I’ve been obsessed with oranges for the past month or so. Honestly, if I had to choose a single food to live off the rest of my life, it would be oranges.
I already said in my last What I eat in a Day post how much I love Buddha bowls. So, today I also decided to have one. This time I chose couscous as my grain, put some kale on top as well as those sugar-free baked beans from my lunch, courgette and a bit of avocado. Also simple and delicious. It took literally only 5 minutes to make this meal.
And that’s it for today’s blog post. I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my new diet and stay tuned for upcoming posts!
See you soon!
