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.
Anyway, this Vegan Curried Chicken Salad recipe is similar to what we had. It’s from Amy Katz at Veggies Save the Day and looks just as tasty. I love the stamped forks.
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.
