Another day...lots of yummy plant based foods!

Continuing my theme from yesterday of "what do I eat in a day" I thought I'd repeat that trend for what I ate on Monday. Started my day off with my typical "go to" breakfast. 

Breakfast - Big bowl of rolled oats. When I say big, I mean big! It fills me up and I am not hungry again until lunch...not to mention that oats are SO good for you. 

1 cup cooked rolled oats
3/4 cups blueberries
1/3 cup raspberries
1/2 banana
1 TBS raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 TBS chia seeds
1/2 TBS ground flax seed
1/2 white nectarine 

I was busy doing yard work so I kind of snacked for lunch
I had an apple and a white nectarine
Had some oil free tortilla chips and fresh salsa

Late afternoon snack - I made a chocolate mug cake from Happy Herbivore. I wanted a little treat after all my yard work. I make it like the recipe, but put half in the mug, drop in 1 TBS peanut butter and then the rest of it on top, then cook as noted in the recipe. It's just a little single serving cake. 

Sweet potato/black bean taco- easy peasy - just mix up black beans, sweet potato, cumin, chili powder, nutritional yeast, onion powder, cilantro and salsa and then put it into a warmed corn tortilla. I always bake a couple of sweet potatoes in the oven and then put them in the refrigerator for use during the week. During the warmer summer months I do it in the morning so it doesn't heat up my kitchen when it gets warm later in the day. The other great thing about doing this is that after they have cooled in the fridge, the skin just slides right off! 

1 head of lightly steamed broccoli - drizzled a little of my oil free Caesar dressing on it.

1 large mixed greens salad with cucumber, red bell pepper, tomatoes and my oil free Caesar dressing.

Yummy dinner. As a will not go hungry on a plant based diet! It fills you up and you don't feel stuffed and uncomfortable.
