Ryan and I thought maybe it might be interesting (for some😬) to see what we eat in a typical day as a vegan couple. We have been eating a 🌱vegan diet, or mostly a Whole Foods plant based diet for a little over 2 years now.
Either way here you have it for Monday…
4:30 am Ryan and I shared a pot of black coffee(REALLY, really strong) ☕️ I won’t complain here and go into detail about Ryan’s brewing techniques because, well, I am still hoping for a cup tomorrow, so I will just say… it’s unique!🤫
Our coffee goes well with the morning paper, my latest blogging posts to read up on, and our morning chat before the day gets rolling for us.
5:30 am Ryan( he’s so sweet) always makes us both a slice of peanut butter toast(I’ve tried to give this up, but it’s so yummy with my coffee). Ryan will actually slice up half a banana on his peanut butter toast.
7:30 am Lana steaming hot bowl of homemade split pea soup.
I usually go for whatever leftovers I can heat up. We also have some tomato lentil soup in the fridge, but I’ll save that for tomorrow.
8:00 am Ryan bean burrito 🌯 with greens and sriracha sauce and jalapeños( Ryan is sort of obsessed with jalapeños right now, I don’t know why) 🙄
10:00 am Lana banana and some grapes 🍇 with a few spoonfuls of peanut butter(I’m guilty of loving peanut butter, I can’t seem to stop). 😋 Some days I will take one of my low carb wraps, and make a burrito with peanut butter and a banana. This is really filling.
10:00 am Ryan apple 🍎 (plain, no peanut butter,kinda boring). 🤭
11:30 am Ryan Baked fries, carrot sticks, strawberries and a handful of almonds
11:30 am Lana Baked fries(we served this for daycare, so it was hard to resist) carrot sticks, a burrito with a low carb wrap, greens and beans
2:00 pm Ryan veggie sandwich with hummus, sprouts, greens jalapeños and spicy mustard. I didn’t even know he had this amazing sandwich without me, 🤣I was taking books back to the library. 📚
2:30 pm Lana & Ryan Apple, with chips and bean dip
5:00 pm Off work, time for a glass of 🍷 wine for Lana and 🍺 IPA for Ryan! If beer wasn’t vegan I’m not sure what we would do.
This is typical of a day in our life of eating a vegan diet. Nothing too exciting, we thought this post could show that our diet neither expensive or complicated. We are not always 100% strict about it either. On occasion we will both make an exception for a cookie or muffin. We just try our best to stick to it.
Usually Ryan and I eat a lot of burritos, soups and stir fry, simple dishes that we can make a bunch of at the beginning of the week and keep reheating.
Thank for for checking out our post. What is your diet like? What are your go to meals for during the week?
