So, this is how plant-based days of the week started. We watched a documentary called “What the health?” and it was enough to get us to start transitioning into a more plant-based diet. (Watch this space…I will be doing a post on our Journey to a plant-based diet).
This post is to share with you some of the meals I have on a typical plant based day.
On this particular day, I did not have any snacks because my meals were so hearty and satisfying. If I snack, it usually hummus with carrots sticks/quinoa chips or almond butter on medjool dates sprinkled with cinnamon and cacao nibs.
Breakfast: Oat bowl
What more can I say but I love my bowl food. Acai bowls in summer and oat bowls in winter. This is my go to breakfast 99% of the time on plant based days.
Lunch: Cauliflower and pea curry toastie
This curry takes me back to my childhood, it is a staple at my parents home and never fails to tickle the tastebuds.
Dinner: Vegan burger and spicy wedges
I am not a fan of processed foods especially soya, however the Quorn spicy burgers (soya free) has helped with transitioning into a more plant based diet. Mum made battered brinjol lightly fried in coconut oil, I topped the brinjol with the vegan burger, kimchi and avocado. This combination was so flavourful and the kimchi completes this dish.
I hope this helps with meal ideas. Please let mw know if you would like more of these posts or recipes to any of the meals.
