LIFE OF A VEGAN

hey there!

i thought about some general vegan posts i’m gonna do, to make sure you people get a little insight into the „vegan world“.

being vegan sometimes feels like being an outcast, but „new“ or „unusual“ lifestyles and ideas never used to be popular in its beginning-times.

this post is gonna show you how an ordinary day as a vegan could look like.

it’s about preparing your meals at home & gives you some recipe-ideas.

i’m also going to write a post on how to survive an omni*-party and an „eating out guide“,

but let’s talk about a day at home first!

* an „omni“ is an „omnivore“, which means people who eat whatever they can get, by means of meat, fish, dairy, eggs, gelatine & other animal-based foods. you get the idea. you’re surrounded by omnis! ;)

SAMPLE DAY OF A VEGAN’S LIFE

Breakfast

breakfast is important, for our bodies need to fill up the energy levels after some good sleep.

some people like a really early breakfast, some (like me) prefer it to be later.

- what about some

HOMEMADE GRANOLA?

–> enjoy it with any mylk you like best: soy-, almond-, hemp-, rice-, oat- or spelt-mylk.

- you can’t really eat much after getting up?

here’s some yummy & not-too-rich idea: “QUICK BREAKFAST”

- not a granola-fan?

i can hardly imagine, but of course there are various other options:

- try different nut-butters, such as peanut-, almond- or macadamia-butter;

- get some jam, but remember to check if it’s gelatine-free!

- use vegan margarine & top it with some maple-syrup;

- make yourself some yummy “BANANARAMA” (banana-butter)

- find a yummy chocolate-spread sans milk;
- oh, and don’t you ever forget about the delicious   “WAKE-ME-UP – CUP”  !

- you’re more the savoury breakfast-type?

no prob!

- get some (toasted) bread or sandwich & eat it with vegan cheese (available at vegan online shops & big supermarkets) or even vegan fake-meat (same here).

- if you’re fond of scrambled eggs, try a fake-version of it by using tofu.

just search the internet for a good alternative, there are many great recipes waiting for you out there!

- and, last but not least, fruit has always been the quickest breakfast to-go!

Lunch & Dinner

well, what do we have here?

millions of opportunities!

the basics:

- protein

lentils, beans, tofu & other soy-products, tempeh, seitan;

- whole grains

quinoa, amaranth, spelt, oat, wheat, rice, whole-grain pasta, …

- veggies

think along;)

here are some ideas:

SPICY PROTEIN PAN

 

SALAD – STYLE GRILLED VEGGIES

or what about a Champignon-Veggie-Pan? :)

you need to know that i only post recipes without the added whole-grains, for it’s not that complicated to cook rice, quinoa or so. so just make the things i post & then add your fav. whole-gains! :)

another great tip is to visit this site: Katies Blog !

i often use her recipes, they’re awesome!

Snacks

it happens i’ve written an entire post about my fav. snacks right here .

but, just so you get the idea:

TRAIL MIX

some GRILLED VEGGIES with LENTIL – SPREAD

(i also added some tomato-sauce here& used it as dip)

TOFU ROSSO – SALAD

AMARANTH – PUDDING

CHAI – COFFEE – SHAKE

see, a yummy vegan day is possible & very recommendable :)
