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:

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!

    Hugs,

    Gayle

    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!
