Eating Vegan Diet – Day 3

What I ate today…

Breakfast:

Muesli bowl with almond milk, flax seeds, blueberries and raspberries

Red pepper hummus with whole wheat toast

Exercise:

Did some weightlifting:

  • Leg press
  • Bench Press
  • Pull ups

Post Workout:

Had a quick Vegan mocha protein shake with flax seeds

Chickpea curry with brussel sprouts

Dinner:

Same as lunch but added a bit more greens

Shopping:

Went vegan shopping at trader joe’s.  Here’s what $98.77 gets you 🙂

Got some Vegan must haves like:

  • Cashews
  • Almonds
  • White kidney beans
  • Avocados
  • Yams
  • Extra firm Tofu

I included some emergency snacks like pre-made tofu with sriracha sauce.

Also got some Pea protein powder to further increase my protein intake.  Not sure if this brand is good but I just grabbed it.

Review:

Day 3 went fine.  So far I haven’t really seen any major issues.  I had already prepared the chickpea curry a day or two ago so it was good just to pop it in the microwave.

Food prep is going to be the hardest challenge so I need to make sure I build some positive cooking habits. My plan right now is to cook/food shop on days when I don’t workout.  I think that should be a good enough to start with.

 

So far so good 🙂
