What I Ate Today: February 20, 2021

I haven’t done a ‘What I Ate Today’ blog post in a while, so I thought I’d make another one today (February 20, 2021).  The purpose of these posts is to show people what vegans eat and give some new meal ideas. I will also add links to any brands or recipes I mention so that you can make these foods too.  So, let’s get started!

Today was a busy day.  My partner and I spent almost the entire day socializing Olive.  (If you don’t know who Olive is, she is our rescue puppy.)  Olive is definitely making some progress, but we still have a lot of work to do with getting her more comfortable with the world.

Coffee, matcha, vegan yogurt bowls topped with orange slices and hemp hearts, and vegan banana bread

Before we set out for our first adventure, we had yogurt bowls topped with oranges and hemp hearts, and the last of our homemade banana bread (from the cookbook Fuss-Free Vegan).  The yogurt is Riviera vanilla coconut-based, and it is definitely one of my favourites.


Lentil curry soup with avocado toast

After going to two different parks with Olive, we came back home for lunch.  I made us very fancy avocado toast with a side of lentil curry soup from Costco.

Here is what was on the toast:

  • Sauteed mushrooms and onions

  • Tofu crumbles (also from Fuss-Free Vegan)

  • A slice of Daiya cheddar

  • Homemade guacamole

  • Sesame seeds for garnish

I also made one-ingredient vegan dog treats by baking yam slices!  They turned out a bit too soft, so I am going to try dehydrating them.  I’ll post the recipe once I’ve perfected it.

Stir fry, ramen noodles, fried tofu, and veggie spring rolls

Later that day, we took Olive out one more time before dark.  She did great, so that session was much quicker.  

Dinner was really yummy, but I definitely ate too many noodles.  I made ramen noodles with stir fry, fried tofu, and veggie spring rolls.  For dessert I had a So Delicious salted caramel ice cream bar.

That’s it!  I hope you enjoyed reading this.  Let me know what yummy vegan food you ate today in the comments below!
