Eating Vegan Diet – Day 10

Day 10

Made it to double digits days in a row.  Sweet.

Here’s how day 10 went:

Breakfast:

Muesli bowl with almond milk and fruits and avocado toast.

Workout:

Leg Press

Bench Press

Pull Ups

Made some slight progress on bench press and pull ups.  So far energy level still good.

Post workout Meal

Protein shake and banana

Lunch:

Brown rice, lentils, sriracha tofu and brussel sprouts.

I used a pre-marinated sriracha tofu from Trader Joe’s.  Blehh.

Was not a fan of this. I thought having ready made tofu would taste good and save me time. Never again haha.

Food Shopping : $60

Was time to stock up the fridge with some groceries from Trader Joe’s

Dinner:

Was feeling lazy so just warmed stuff up in the microwave.

Before:

After:

Black beans, brown rice, avocado, and cauliflower.

I was tired and just wanted something to eat.  So I simply made some quick food.

This meal was ok.  I realized I’m not a big black beans guy.  Even by adding some spicy flavor with salsa and sriracha I did not enjoy this meal much.  It was fine for a one time thing but I would prefer not to eat it again.

Review:

I wanted to use premade stuff because I thought it would save me time and the taste might be better.  However, the tradeoff is these packaged items have a lot of sodium in order to keep them preserved. I probably would have been fine with this if the meals tasted amazing.  But clearly that’s not a guarantee.

So the lesson here is spend a little more time to make my own food.  It’ll be tastier and be healthier. Win – win.

Guess I have to sharpen my cooking skills 🙂
