What I Eat in a Day: January 1st, 2018

Yay! So excited about this Veganuary series happening on my blog this month! You all responded so well to my Instagram poll/Idea of doing daily blog posts so I am really looking forward to this month 🙂 


Wow. My first day AND I FORGOT TO TAKE A PHOTO OF IT! Basically, I had Tofu scramble in some tortillas (aka breakfast tacos) and they were so yummy. 

If you want to know how I exactly make it, check out my tofu scramble recipe. I added spinach this time! 


For some reason I was craving zucchini noodles today so I whipped some up with the easiest lentil bolognese. 

For the zoodles I cooked them in some spray avocado oil seasoned with salt, pepper & dried basil. I let that cook for 4-5 minutes or cooked through. I cook it on a higher heat as I feel that it sometimes takes a lot of the water out without the zoodles being soggy. For the sauce, I added around 1/4 cup chopped carrots and cooked them in spray oil for 2-3 minutes. I added around 1/4 cup of lentils & 1/4 cup pasta sauce. I let that thicken up and added it to my noodles. Topped with nutritional yeast & dried parsley!


This has been my go to dinner for the past month! Roasted veggies & grilled tofu! If you don’t like tofu, then that’s okay! However I can’t live without my tofu!

I roasted all my veggies at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for around 35 minutes, flipping after 20 minutes. I roasted the brussels in salt, pepper, onion powder & a dash of maple syrup! I roasted my potatoes & broccoli in salt, pepper & onion powder. I used spray olive oil to coat the veggies! 

As for the tofu, I used my grill pan and cooked it in salt, pepper & herbs de provence. I cooked it for around 5 minutes on each side! At then end I gave everything a fresh squeeze of lemon juice! 

That is everything that I ate today! I usually do snack but all my meals kept me full until then next one!

      My what I eat in a day posts aren’t meal plans, they’re just what I eat. Sometimes I eat more, sometimes I eat this amount. It’s how I am feeling that day and what my body craves. Everyone is different & this post is just for an ideas, not me forcing down your throat what to eat. If you’ve been following me on IG for awhile you would know I eat plenty (pasta, rice, quinoa, etc.).

    Thank you for these posts. All ready I’m getting some good ideas! My husband and I have been vegan for over two years. We love it and I rely heavily on Whole Foods to make it happen. I’d like to start cooking a little more now. Don’t have much time though. Your meals are an inspiration. Also, we seem to have similar tastes. I too love the sprouted bread and same vegan butter as you. I’m also totally into tofu! I’ll keep following!
