what I eat in a day // vegan + rheumatoid arthritis

We’re getting close to the day I take medication for my rheumatoid arthritis, so here are some super simple but healthy meals I’ve been eating since I’ve had such low-energy.


A smoothie! Today I tried to get lots of nutrients in before I went to work, so here’s what I put in this morning’s smoothie:

  • spinach (about 1- 2 cups)
  • 1 cup cashew milk
  • about 1/2-3/4 cup water
  • 1 package of a smoothie pack that had pineapple, banana, cranberry, kale, and lemon. We picked this up just because the combo sounded so good.
  • 1 scoop of Vega protein powder (Vega isn’t the best in my opinion, but it’s what we had at the house)
  • 2 tbsp creamy peanut butter


Two rice and chickpea tacos. This is some really lazy spanish rice that came from a box (I definitely prefer homemade rice, but this was so easy to make) with some leftover chickpeas that we had in the fridge.


I ate dinner when I came home from work at 9:30pm, so the lighting isn’t the best. This is a sweet potato and peanut soup, with some chickpea curry and potato fries baked in the oven topped with some cilantro, black pepper, and garlic powder.

Here are the ingredients for the sweet potato soup:

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Peanut butter
  • Ginger
  • Minced garlic
  • Onion
  • Kale
  • Cumin
  • Red pepper flakes.

We cooked the sweet potatoes in veggie broth and blended them to get a nice thick soup. Then we added everything else in and let it simmer for a bit. A recipe for the curry will be coming soon.

That’s everything I ate today. I always try to make my meals simple but nutritious on days where I don’t feel well. It helps my body recover faster plus I feel so much better. Let me know your thoughts in the comments. ♡

I also recently started a YouTube channel, so check it out if you haven’t already.
