What I Eat in a Day as a Vegan


I get asked often what I eat in a day, how I meal prep, etc. and I document this weekly on my snapchat (Username: Dream4tmrw)! I thought I'd break down where I get my veggie servings in, according to my meal plan, and provide a sample vegan menu on an average day :):)

How I get in 5 Servings of Veggies Per Day:
1. Raw frozen spinach in my morning smoothie: you can't taste spinach, so sometimes I'll even double the portion!
2. Mixed Veggies with lunch: I always stir fry my veggies and mix them with my protein/carb. To see a sample detailed meal prep, click here.
3. Side Salad with lunch: I'll put some greens/lettuce in a bowl with raw baby carrots and top it with my homemade miso ginger dressing.
4. Mixed Veggies with Dinner: I usually have meals prepped (same as lunch), but another example dinner is Zoodles (1 serving of veggies), or my tofu stuffed bell peppers.
5. With dinner, I'll prep a delicious veggie dish, like curried cauliflower I have as a side with my zoodles, or stuffed bell pepper!
That's about 5-6 veggie servings in 1 day, that are already prepped, ready to go, and delicious!


To give you an overview, here is a sample of what my weekly meal prep looks like. It takes about 3 full hours from grocery shopping to completion! Need help with meal prep? Here are my top 5 tips.

On an average day, here is an example of my meal plan approved Vegan Menu

Breakfast: Superfood Smoothie that I BLEND, and sometimes top with toasted unsweetened coconut flakes
Lunch: Tofu Scramble with a side of quinoa, and 1/8 avocado and hot sauce
Dinner: Zucchini Noodles (aka zoodles) with my favorite Engine 2 Roasted Red Bell Pepper Marinara Sauce, and a side of the tofu stuffed bell pepper filling since I made a LOT for the entire week!!

For snacks during the day, I'll have a side salad with baby carrots and my homemade miso dressing, and a pear or whatever fruit I have handy! :)
