As a vegan, I eat far more than listed.
In summertime when it is hard to think of cooking meat or anything. I usually choose salads on a wrap. Today I had lettuce, tomatoes, chickpeas, onion with sweet chilli sauce on wrap. I usually have it with ham and cheese as well which are not plant based I know. I'm not a lover of broccoli but I eat it for the iron content every now and again. I love lentils and butter beans in water and every now and again I like to eat nuts too
Thank you for saying that about what you have during the Summer and every now and then. What type of nuts do you like?
Cashew nuts are my favourite, I like pine nuts too
What is " Seitan " ?
It's a vegan protein, that has a texture a bit like sliced ham I think? Made from gluten
I mean, it's not made from gluten, it's just gluten.
Dosen't sounds very appealing...
It is not. I made it once, just to see. It involved kneading bread flour together until a lump of gluten forms, then rinsing off the carbs.
Then tamari, because even though it is literally all wheat, you must have wheat free soy sauce.
I don't think the (literally) glutinous mass was good food, but I ate it all.
As you know we can't get enough vegetables. Have fruit almost every morning for breakfast with Quark and my own rosehip syrup or local honey. Ryvita and bananas or oranges for lunch. Always at least 3 veggies for dinner.
What is both Quark and Ryvita? I never had those out here before.
Quark is fat free soft cheese. You can use it straight from the tub on fruit etc or stirred into soups, sauces and pasta dishes to add a creamy taste. Ryvita is just a rye wheat crisp bread which I spread with very low fat cheese triangle and chopped banana for lunch.
Thank you for the information on both Quark and Ryvita. I'll have to see if we have Quark out here the next time we have pasta. Sounds like a good idea for pasta nights.
Great poll Leah I chose the top four and I eat lots of fruit and vegetables. 😊
I hate all vegetables, and only eat broccoli, cauliflower and beans when I have to... Being forced to eat vegetables as a child has put me off them for life!
All of the above except vegan cheese (too much fat/little nutrition) and seitan ( wheat intolerant). My list of what I eat is also very extensive. I just had a home-made mushroom strogonof made with a silken tofu "sour cream" over brown rice & quinoa with sunflower seeds for dinner. Second time I've made it. The sauce still needs a little tweaking but it was much better than my first attempt. I also have to eat 65 - 85g protein a day for medical reasons so 22g is good for a main meal for me but I generally still have to supplement most days so you can add vegan protein powder to the list.
Thank you for that information. Much appreciated.
We usually use tofu for whenever we have meals with rice/quinoa and/or noodles that are gluten free.
You just need a pack of silken tofu, a couple of tablespoons of lemon juice and some garlic powder to taste (optional) to make the sour cream. I used 1/2 tsp. Whizz it up in a blender and add a couple of tablespoons of water if needed to make a thick creamy consistency. Then just make up your strogonof as usual and it goes in at the end of cooking. You just have to be careful to reduce the rest of the sauce on the mushrooms enough so it doesn't get too watery. I used chestnut mushrooms (baby bella ) as they have a nice bite.
I've selected all but seitan/tofu. Tofu doesn't suit my digestive system and seitan is pure gluten!
We've also been enjoying a lot of vegan BBQ foods this summer, as a few friends have turned veggie.
What barbecue foods do you have that are Vegan?
We had some really nice burgers by Gosh, which were pretty similar to chicken
I like a lot if their foods, like their falafel and kebabs
Hi Leah, Nice poll 😁👍
I chose the first 5. However, vegan cheese very limited even saturated fat is less than 20 percent. Others are gluten intolerance and no soy/tofu except edamame as snacks sometimes. Lots of veggies and fruits ofc. 😋
I tend to like Brussel Sprouts, Carrots, Potatoes- boiled in their skins, Onions- cooked either With A Dish, or In a Dish. I also like Sweet Corm- either On, or Off, The Cob.
I enjoy many fruits, especially Strawberries IN 'Season', there are also some 'good' Raspberries around too. One I Don't see often is Gooseberries- a Slightly 'Tart' fruit, rather like Red Currents.
Quite a few I haven't Mentioned too, I'm sure.
Basically all of this and more except for Seitan. I have a gluten allergy. Seen some people do yummy looking things with it, but haven't ever been able to partake.
I've never heard of Seitan.
8 don’t normally eat soy cos a large portion of soybeans are GMO and sprayed with Round Up or some pesticide that has glyphosate in it.
Yesterday I managed 28 plant based foods, today I had chia pudding for breakfast which means so far in two days I’ve had 30.
The Chia pudding sounds great! What else did you have with it?
I mixed the chia seeds with koko original milk left to thicken for 30 minutes then topped with some fresh fruit salad, there were about 8 different fruits plus a little honey and chopped mint.
I eat most of the above, except for Seitan or Quinoa. I do like to get as much varity as I can.
Great Post Leah
Thank you for saying that about the poll, Debs. I appreciate it very much.
Which type of nuts do you like?
