What I Ate Today (Vegetarian)

Updated on May 31, 2015

Hello!

Welcome back! In my previous post I talked about how I really enjoyed watching and reading posts about what people eat in a day. So I decided to do just that. I hope this helps give some people inspiration!



Breakfast

I am not gonna lie, I am horrible about eating breakfast. Week days, breakfast is almost none existent since I typically wait till the last minute to get out of bed and get ready for work. On weekends I am obviously in not as much of a hurry, so I tend to squeeze in breakfast. Today I went with a very simple breakfast, cinnamon oatmeal with banana.


Ingredients:

1 banana

Quick oats

Cinnamon to taste


Directions:

1) I honestly don't measure a specific amount of oats, whatever amount looks good that morning is what I go with.

2) I add just enough water to cover the oats, because I like my oatmeal pretty thick.

3) Sprinkle in some cinnamon

4) Cook in the microwave for 1 - 1 1/2 minutes

5) Remove from microwave and mix.

6) Slice the banana on top of the oatmeal

7) Finish with more cinnamon

Lunch

For a quick lunch I like to grab a veggie sushi roll at my local grocery store. I went there today in hopes of grabbing one, but unfortunately they were out, so I decided to make my own.

Ingredients:

Sushi Rice

Nori (Toasted Seaweed)

Carrots

Cucumber

Avocado

Wasabi

Soy Sauce


Tools:

Bamboo Sushi Rolling Mat


Directions:

1) Cook the rice

2) Chop the vegetables

3) Once the rice is done cooking, cover the rolling mat with some plastic wrap and lay a piece of nori on the mat.

4) Cover the nori with a thin layer of rice, leaving a small strip at the bottom to seal the sushi.

5) Lay your ingredients on the rice

6) Tightly roll the sushi

7) Cut the sushi in bite sized pieces and serve alongside soy sauce and wasabi


Snack

For a snack, lately I have been eating a lot of hummus. It is great to eat with veggies, pretzels or some pita bread. Not only is it a great snack, but you can put it in a wrap with some veggies and it makes a great meal. I think if you are going vegetarian or vegan hummus should be in your refrigerator at all times!


Ingredients:

2 cans of garbanzo beans

1/2 cup of olive oil

2 gloves of garlic

1/2 cup of water

4 tbsp of lemon juice

1/2 tsp of salt

1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper

2 spoonfuls of tahini - (I use this sparingly, as it can be a little bitter tasting, but you can add as much or as little as you'd like.)


Tools:

Food processor


Directions:

For this recipe you literally just chuck everything into a food processor and blend until you get the consistency that you are happy with. The ingredients I have listed above are for a double batch, so you can always cut it in half. My food processor is pretty small, so I have to cut the recipe in half and then once I have made two batches I put them back in the food processor and blend them together.


Dinner

Dinner tonight was vegetable curry! Yum!! :) This recipe is super simple, quick and delicious. It is so filling and you will have tons of leftovers to eat for lunch or dinner for a couple days after.

Ingredients:

Curry sauce mix

Vegetable broth

Half a white onion

1 cucumber

3 potatoes

3 carrots

1 glove of garlic


Directions:

1) Cook the rice so it is ready when the curry finishes

2) Peel and cube the potatoes

3) Peel and cut carrots

4) Cube the cucumber and onion

5) Mince the garlic

6) Add all the vegetables in a pot, add salt and pepper and some olive oil.

7) Sauté vegetables for a little bit.

8) On the box of the curry sauce mix, depending on what size you get, it will tell you how much liquid to add. It calls for water, but I use vegetable stock instead to give it more flavor.

9) Cook on high until the vegetables stock comes to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.

10) Cook till the vegetables are soft

11) Add the curry sauce base to the pot and stir until it is dissolved

12) Scoop rice into a bowl and serve the curry on top

Dessert

I didn't make dessert tonight, instead I ate a ice cream my friend recently told me about. It is by a company called Nada Moo and instead of using dairy, it uses coconut milk! It is so amazing and I would highly recommend it.
