Breakfast

Breakfast is labelled as the most important meal of the day and rightly so since it not only breaks your overnight fast but also helps you to obtain the energy needed to run your system for the entire day. A healthy breakfast enables you to maintain your body weight, boost your brainpower and protects you from illnesses in addition to helping you make better food choices throughout the day. 

A typical vegan breakfast should include whole foods such as vegetables and fruits, lean protein such as legumes and nuts which not only make you feel full but also helps to kickstart your day with a burst of energy. 

Some vegan breakfast ideas include:

 

  • Avocado Toast With Garbanzo Beans
  • Healthful Triple-Layer Smoothie
  • Creamy Mango And Coconut Smoothie
  • Vegan Pancakes
  • Peanut Butter-Banana Toast
  • Quinoa &  Chia Oatmeal Mix

 

 

These are very simple to make with guidance offered by videos at every step of the way. In case you feel tired and don’t feel like making something on your own, a breakfast consisting of an adequate number of fruits has proven to suffice as well.

 

Lunch

 

If you want to get rid of the fruity flavour inaugurated by your breakfast, lunch is at your rescue. Let whole grains and rice take over your lunch and feel the magic happen. If you want your body to work well throughout the afternoon and night, if you are planning to skip your breakfast, then lunch is the key. A vegan lunch should be a perfect blend of carb-rich foods and satisfying proteins.

 

Here are some lunch ideas:

 

  • Japanese noodles with sesame dressing
  • Gardein fishless tacos
  • Herby apricot quinoa
  • Black bean veggie burger
  • Crunchy chickpea salad
  • Eggless salad sandwich

We all wish our dinners to be light enough so as to not gain weight and heavy enough to doze us off to sleep at the right time. Maintaining the balance of intensity as well as nutrients at the same time is crucial, and some of the suggestions below help us to do just that.
