Do you like… eat grass?

It has been a common response since going plant-based for people to ask, “what do you eat?” Of course this way of life took some adjusting too, but now it is so natural I don’t know why I ever hesitated.

So when I saw one of my favorite bloggers, Ashley’s Green Life was doing a blog post titled “Vegan what I ate today” I thought I should do the same. Plus, this way I can share some of my favorite recipes with my friends 🙂

What I ate yesterday:

Breakfast – Banana Pancakes & Mate tea


Lunch- Spinich Salad with Pinto Beans, Bell Pepper, and Couscous. (one day I will get a newer cell phone and the photo quality on this blog will be incredible… haha)
Snacks- Vegan Double Chocolate Chip Cookie from Palate
Another Snack- Hummus and the rest of the Bell Pepper From Lunch
Dinner- Bean Bowl. A staple in our house. Brown rice, black beans cooked in chili powder and Braggs Liquid Aminos, corn, bell pepper, water chesnuts, fresh tomato, salasa, and ususally avacado but I ran out.

So there you go. A day of plant-based food. See, I am not just eating salads or lettuce!

  1. Joella,

    This is fabulous!! Thank you! Everything you ate yesterday is all the kind of food I LOVE!!!! It is so helpful, too, to know exactly what people who are so healthy and lean eat for people like me who constantly (CONSTANTLY) battle with figuring out how to ever get this weight off. I know you run, and that helps keep you in shape, too. But it also motivates me to just get out every day and at least WALK!



    1. Thank you, Gayle! I will keep it up then! I can totally sympathize. It was so hard at first. I remember you encouraging me to run/walk when I was a teenager. I know you have it in you to get in the habit 🙂
      One thing that really helped me was the “Forks over Knives Cookbook.” It keeps things pretty simple but prep time can be a bit consuming. Another one is “Skinny Bitch in the Kitch.” I am working on perfecting some crock-pot recipes that I can share soon too.

      Good to hear from you!
