Where I try to remain humble and fail

My lovely hubby has always been a relaxed person. In fact, that’s one of the things that first attracted me to him. He was a big guy with a heart to match and an easy going smile.

So, it makes sense that when I thought of starting our vegan diet, he’d be more easy going about the entire thing than I was. While I cut out everything remotely related to animals, he would sneak in the occasional cheeseburger and call himself a ‘relaxed vegan’. I must truly be smitten with the guy because I really couldn’t get mad at him. Being vegan is not something I’d push on anyone.

However, relaxed vegan just went to the doctor’s to find out the results of his blood analysis…And guess who’s cholesterol is down to normal range now?

What I eat in a day…

Before I started eating vegan, I wondered how people did it. What do they eat for breakfast? How do you think of what to eat for lunch? What about dinner? Now, after a couple of months of doing this, it’s becoming pretty regular and routine for me.

I thought I’d share what I eat in a day. Please keep in mind, I’m very new at this and certainly no dietary genius. I like it, it’s easy to make and it’s vegan. Those are my requirements. We’re not talking Martha Stewart here.

Breakfast

This is my breakfast. Oatmeal with almond milk, with hemp hearts, walnuts, blueberries and a dash of maple syrup. Yum!

Coffee is the best part of breakfast!

Of course, there’s a large cup of coffee in there as well. 🙂

 

Lunch

This is going to look a bit odd because I added nutritional yeast before taking the picture but there are roasted peppers in there, with roasted chickpeas, roasted portobello mushrooms, corn, spinach and rice…oh and a banana for desert!

 

Supper

This one is my fruit smoothie and it’s so yummy, it’s like a treat.

This is my rapini soup. It’s super healthy and really tastes awesome…if you like rapini.

 

That’s what I ate today. If you want any of these concoctions, let me know and I’ll share my recipes!
