Don’t know what to eat today? Want something awesome for Meatless Monday? Or Meatless Everyday? Here’s one full day of vegan, plant based, cooked, and raw food recipes. A vegan meal menu using common, inexpensive ingredients found at your local grocery, these healthy breakfast, lunch, dinners, and desserts will deeply nourish and truly satisfy.
Vegan Meal Menu
Breakfast: Healthy Breakfast Tacos
Breakfast tacos? Yes, please. Especially these gorgeous, hearty Healthy Breakfast Tacos from Veggie Inspired, featuring tofu scramble and potatoes. I think these would be great in hard taco shells, but just as good in soft corn tortillas. Vegan and gluten free.
Lunch: Vegan Curried Chicken Salad
I went away with the vegan boyfriend and a group of friends over the weekend to Lake Michigan. One of the surprise vegan options was seeing THIS at Silver Lake Pizza in St. Joseph, MI:
What? Vegan chicken? Well, we discovered it was a vegan and gluten free chicken/ch’ken product that was delicious. We had it on a spring greens mix with dried cherries (it is Michigan, after all), almonds, onions, and a balsamic dressing. It was a beautiful thing. It even looks good in cell phone pics.
Speaking of beautiful. I love where I live. Michigan is a stunningly gorgeous state. These are from Weko Beach in Bridgman.
Dinner: I’m Possible Burger
So, just a week ago I published a DIY Impossible Burger recipe you can make at home. I, my-gluten-free-self, wrote with my own gluten-free hands that the Impossible Burger contains wheat and so I wouldn’t be able to try it. Just days later, I was so excited to see it on a menu at Schu’s in St. Joseph, that I ordered it and ate most of my half before I went, “shazam, this isn’t gluten free!”
It was pretty good and, as I mentioned, I was totally geeked to see it in the wild. I’m thrilled at the increase in vegan options, including this one. But … the Impossible Burger just didn’t curl my toes, either. It was $13 for the burger and fries and I think the little TM flag is required to serve it. I liked the home made version better. It doesn’t have weird ingredients, and $13 worth of ingredients will make as many as 8-10 burger patties. And the I’m Possible Burger is gluten free.
Dessert: Vegan Wendy’s Frosty Copycat Recipe
Every time I pass a Wendy’s, which has vegan French fries, btw, I say, “Someone should make a vegan Wendy’s Frosty recipe.” Well, The Edgy Veg did and it looks awesome.
That’s it for today. A full day of delicious, healthy, satisfying vegan nourishment.
