This week was my second attempt at eating exclusively plant-based foods on Monday. The pictures are not great because they were all taken from my cell phone, and the recipes were not new, but unlike last week, I succeeded in eating only vegan foods.
For breakfast I had peanut butter banana overnight oats. The ingredients were: organic steel cut oats, vanilla soy yogurt, vanilla soy milk, natural peanut butter, flax seeds, and one banana. The steel cut oats give the oatmeal a completely different texture than rolled or quick oats.
And for dinner I made taco salad. This was probably the most exciting meal of the day. Again, I've blogged about this dish before, so I won't go into too much detail. You can check it out here. The ingredients were: whole wheat tortilla, avocado, green bell pepper, black beans, tomato, corn, onion, and fajita seasoning.
I think that I did a pretty good job of hitting all of the food groups in this week's vegan adventure. I got carbs in breakfast and dinner; vegetables in lunch and dinner; fruit at breakfast; and protein in breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'm not sure if soy milk and yogurt count as dairy products in the food pyramid, but if they do, I had those covered at breakfast too. What's your favorite vegan dish?
