Vegans, what did you eat today?

    I'm vegan and currently doing the Happy Shape course which is a calorie controlled eating plan with lots of recipes from The Happy Pear (who are twin brother chefs from Ireland - you can check their YouTube channel).
    I'm less than 2 weeks in and have already lost 3kg (6.6lbs).
    They do have some very tasty recipes including soups, curries, lasagne with more recipes released as you continue the course.

    I love getting meal ideas from The Happy Pear. (plus they aren't harsh on the eyes)

    ^^ The Happy Pear are great!

    Today I've had homemade hummus on toast for breakfast (not what I usually have but the cupboards were almost bare!)
    Lunch was a slice of harrissa roasted cauliflower tart with green salad, capers and chia seeds.

    Only a banana so far.

    But I'm gonna make a panini with hummus (or chickpea mash), mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, onion, cilantro and whatever else sounds good.

    My go to salad has been shredded Brussels sprouts with green apple, brown rice or quinoa, and a super simple Dijon apple cider vinaigrette.

    I love a good hearty soup in the winter. I throw in a ton of root vegetables (the humble turnip is my favorite) and otherwise whatever I have hanging around.

    I’ll eat seafood or fish, and the rest of my family likes their meaty proteins, so I just cook those separately and add them to their portions at the end!

    Today I had fruit for breakfast. A veggie sub topped with sweet onion dressing for lunch, two rice cakes topped with almond butter for a snack, homemade vegetable soup with chickpeas for supper,and an apple early evening. Add in some tea in there too lol.

    Not strictly vegan.
    The bulk of my dinner last night was a toasted naan round, topped with roasted pine nut hummus, a thin slice of provolone, and fresh spinach. Could’ve done without the cheese, as I couldn’t even taste it.
    My lunch was the last leftover bit of mushroom pasta: sauté garlic, shallot and onion in avocado oil until translucent, add a huge amount of sliced brown mushrooms, cook for a bit, deglaze with 2 cups water, add roasted garlic better than boullion and vegetable better than boullion for flavor, as well as sage & thyme, then dumped in maybe a half cup of orzo pasta. It formed its own brown gravy-like sauce and was delicious.
