Sample Daily Eating!!!

One of the questions that I get asked the most is “well if you are vegan…what do you actually eat!?!”. As much as I would love to ask “tree bark with a side of grass”…I know that is my sarcasm coming out, and that I should be a little more patient. Afterall, not everyone knows what a planted based vegan is.

I remember when I first began eating vegan, I got “stuck” on a few different dishes that I loved and I ate them time after time after time. But one of the most important things, and one of the most rewarding, is that a vegan diet should consist of a variety of many different things. I specially like to eat seasonally and I tend to prefer salty over sweet. So on that note…here is a sample week meal plan from me!
