Plant-Based What I Eat in a Day – Vegan Weight Loss

I love eating a plant-based diet! I keep it whole food plant-based, oil free, simple, and delicious. I made my berry jammy oatmeal (with a few modifications) for breakfast, a yummy salad with smoky mustard dressing for lunch, and a tasty mishmosh meal for dinner using some beans, quinoa, mixed veggies, hummus and HP sauce. I’ll also share the snacks and dessert I enjoyed today as well as a few things I did today!

Since switching to a plant-based diet, I have lost 80 pounds. and regained my health.

Breakfast – Water, Coffee, PB & J Oatmeal

I enjoyed a modified version of my Berry Jammy Oatmeal for breakfast.

I used:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats for my grain of choice
  • 1/2 cup riced cauliflower (instead of shredded zucchini and carrot)
  • 1/2 cup berries
  • 1/2 cup of water

I warmed this mixture in the microwave. Then, I mixed 1/4 cup of berry chia jam with 1 tbsp of powdered peanut butter, for topping my oats. I love mixing jam with powdered peanut butter! It tastes amazing! You can also use regular natural peanut butter if you prefer. I also topped my oatmeal with ground chia seeds and hemp seeds. I often like to batch cook oat groats in the Instant Pot, but sometimes it’s nice to switch it up! I already had my jam prepared, so this was a very easy and quick recipe to put together.

After breakfast, Ryerden had online school and I got some work done. Our area is still in lockdown, so we’re making the best of it. I’m lucky that I get to work from home and make my own hours, so we’re doing our best to have fun and make it work!

Snack – Apple

We shared an apple before heading outside to have some fun with our Lebert Fitness Equalizer Calisthenics Bars. I got these calisthenics bars for my birthday last year and I absolutely adore them! I didn’t think anyone else in the family would use them. Much to my surprise, we all have great fun using them, which is an added bonus!

Lunch – Smoky Sweet Mustard Salad

I adore this salad! I had some smoky mustard Brussels sprouts and crispy chickpeas prepped and ready to go. I roughly chopped some spinach and kale, whipped up my smoky sweet mustard salad dressing, and threw it all together for a delicious meal! Next time I’ll add some starchy veggies or a whole grain as well.

Snack – Cantaloupe

Ryerden helped me scoop out the cantaloupe and we enjoyed some refreshing melon for an afternoon snack.

Dinner – Meg’s Mishmosh Meal: Veggie Beans with Hummussy HP Sauce

Tonight’s dinner was a bit of an experiment. We started with some leftovers and added some frozen veggies and sauces:

  • onion
  • peppers
  • black beans
  • chickpeas
  • frozen mixed vegetables
  • oil free hummus
  • HP sauce (HP isn’t the healthiest sauce option, but we enjoy it from time to time)

This mishmosh meal turned out really well! We all enjoyed the mix of veggies and beans with the flavour of the hummus and HP sauce. This would also be delicious with salsa, bbq sauce, or hot sauce in place of the HP sauce.

Dessert – Tea and Popcorn (and a few dates)

I made a cup of earl grey tea with a splash of almond milk in it, and made popcorn in our microwaveable popcorn popper. I love tea and popcorn!

I also had a few dates and more water in the evening.

Supplements

I  take vitamin B12 and vitamin D3 supplements daily.

I drank lots of water in between meals (and with my meals) today.

  1. Thanks for sharing. It helps me to see simple dishes. I don’t have anyone I know who are plant based so there isn’t anyone to bounce ideas with. Many sites & books are more elaborate than I cook.
