Another what I eat in a day post with easy vegan recipes.
Breakfast: the tastiest oatmeal
My favorite combo for oatmeal is peanut butter and blueberries, if you’ve never had it before you must try it. I made 1/2 cup of oatmeal with cinnamon, blueberries, and peanut butter. It was my day off, so I threw in a tablespoon of dark chocolate chips too. The brand I use is Enjoy Life, they make a bunch of variants of dairy free chocolate chips. For an exact recipe, you will need:
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 tbsp Jif natural creamy peanut butter
- 1 tbsp Enjoy Life dark chocolate morsels
First, I added the dry oats to a bowl and added enough water to cover the oats. I microwaved it for 1 1/2 minutes, keeping an eye on it to make sure the oatmeal didn’t overflow while it was cooking. Then I mixed it, added a little bit of cinnamon, then microwaved it for another minute. Once that was done I added in the frozen blueberries and mixed it together to defrost them, then I added the peanut butter and chocolate chips. I microwaved it for a few more seconds, just enough for the peanut butter and chocolate chips to melt.
Lunch: Split Pea Soup with white rice
We found a bunch of Amy’s vegan soups when we were at Kroger, and we picked some up for lazy meals. I had half of a can of the split pea soup with some white rice. It was light in sodium, and it was so delicious! If you pick up any of the soups, just be careful because not all of them are vegan.
Dinner: potatoes and spinach
I just really wanted some potatoes and hummus. I made a cheesy sauce with 2 tbsp of Sabra’s classic hummus, 1 tbsp nutritional yeast, a little water to thin it out, and a few drops of Frank’s Hot Sauce. I made 1 cup of spinach to go with it, but I made it the lazy way by microwaving it with nutritional yeast and garlic powder.
This is seriously the BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe: Liv B’s Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe. You have to make these, this is going to be my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe from now on. I really wanted some homemade chocolate chip cookies and found her video on YouTube, and had to make them. They turned out delicious and chewy and I recommend trying out her recipe asap.
That’s everything I ate this day! Just trying to keep it simple and tasty, and showing that being vegan is easy. ♡
