These are some recipes of what I ate in a day. I have some videos on my YouTube channel showing what I like to eat in a day. They are all simple, easy, healthy & vegan. I hope you enjoy and are inspired to try out my recipes and ideas. It is easy to motavate yourslef to eat healthy when it's fun & colourful.
BREAKFAST: The Ultimate Carob Smoothie Bowl
1. Blend 1 ripe banana, a handful of frozen pitted cherries, a splash of coconut water, & around 2 tsp of carob powder.
2. Pour that chocolaty goodness into a bowl.
3. Top it with a handful of sliced strawberries, shredded coconut, carob buttons, cocoa nibs, buckwheat groats, and if you want something extra delicious, I would recommend adding a couple of pieces of Loving Earth's dark chocolate.
MORNING TEA: Papaya
On this particular day my grandma had some ripe paw paw sitting around so she gave me some, which I had with a few carob buttons and fresh strawberries. I usually like to eat some kind of fruit for a snack before or after lunch.
LUNCH: Rainbow Salad Jars
I find these salad jars really fun and easy to make. They're great for when you're on the go. You can make these the night before, storing them in the fridge with lids on, and then eat them when you're ready the next day.
For this recipe you can change up the salad with different vegetables and greens and you don't have to make the salad in jars, you could just have it in a large bowl if that works better for you. This salad would also be great with apple cider vinegar mixed though, and a sprinkle of hemp seeds on top.
To make 2 of these beauties just:
1. Roast 2 diced medium potatoes, 1-2 portobello mushrooms, and 1/2 cup of diced pumpkin. Cover the veggies in olive oil (just a dash), and sprinkle over some dried mixed herbs and salt on the potatoes & mushrooms, and only put some ground cinnamon on the pumpkin. Pop the tray of veggies into the oven for about 35 minutes, on 200 degrees Celsius.
2. Chop up 6 snow peas, 6 leaves cos lettuce, 1/2 cup white/ green cabbage, 1/2 cup red/purple cabbage, small bunch Asian greens (of your choice), 1/4 cucumber, 1 large tomato or around 10 cherry tomatoes, handful fresh parsley, & 1 stalk celery. Grate 1 carrot, and rinse 1 cup cooked chickpeas.
3. Layer all of the ingredients into two large jars like a rainbow. Squeeze in a little bit of lemon juice and top the jars off with a dollop of hommus.
DINNER: Buddha Bowl
On this night I made healthy vegan Buddha bowls for the whole family. These are fast and easy meals packed full of protein and nutrients.
To make this bowl just:
1. Cut carrots, cucumber, capsicums, and celery into sticks. Dice some tomatoes, cut the corn off of the cob (you can also use tinned cooked corn but I prefer it fresh and raw), and cut the ends off some long greens beans. Roast some diced pumpkin with a little olive oil & ground cinnamon. Cook up some quinoa and brown rice. I mixed about a tbsp into the quinoa when it was ready, just to add a little flavour. Chop up a few leaves of cos lettuce. I pan fried my tofu in some fresh ginger and garlic, with a splash of tamari and sprinkled in some sesame seeds.
2. Decorate your bowl or plate with all of the above. I drizzled over some tahini, and added pepitas (pumpkin seeds) and a dollop of hommus on top.
