Two weeks in a vegan’s plate: meal suggestions for healthy vegans

It has been more than two weeks that we are on a vegan diet… Before this fast, the concept of being vegan was very foreign to me. I learned already a lot from last year’s experience. This post might give you an insight of what you can eat on a vegan’s diet or give you ideas of meals if you are already familiar with this plant-based diet.

Here are a few meals that we enjoyed:

On rise

Lemon juice in lukewarm water 30 minutes before food (really good to get your gastric juices started and help the liver secrete bile).

Breakfast

Cereal bowl or smoothie with:

Healthy eating vegan breakfast

  • Frozen berries (strawberries, raspberries and blueberries: antioxidants anyone?)
  • Chia seeds
  • Almond / oat or rice milk (unsweetened)

  • 1 scoop of protein powder (at the moment we are using Amazonia Raw Protein Isolate, vanilla flavour. It is made with bio-fermented live ingredients and natural enzymes, pea and brown rice protein so easy to digest)

What is Kim chi? It is a traditional fermented Korean side. The mix of fermented ingredients includes organic: cabbages, onions, carrots, cayenne pepper, ginger as well as wakame, kale, Himalayan pink salt and a multistrain dairy free probiotic. It is slightly spicy and sour.
