What I Ate Today: February 20, 2022

Welcome to another What I Ate Today post, where I share the meals and snacks that I eat throughout the day. These posts are not meant to be taken as dietary advice, but more to give people some ideas on the foods you can eat as a vegan. This day includes some fun takeout food because we decided to do a mini road trip and explore Courtenay, BC.


I started my day pretty much the same as I do every morning: coffee with oat milk and toast. I wanted to change things up a bit by adding some mango, but as you can see, the mango was unripe and I ended up not eating much of it.

My toast this morning was an English muffin with peanut butter and jam. I have to share the jam I used because it is so good:

It's made on Vancouver Island, and it's delicious.

Lunch #1

My partner and I decided to do a spontaneous road trip to Courtenay for lunch, but we wanted a snack along the way. We stopped at Cobs Bakery for one of their plant-based pizzas (it has roasted red peppers and Beyond crumbles). It ended up being more of a meal than a snack, which is why I'm calling it lunch #1.

Lunch #2

Our second lunch was from a cafĂ© in Courtenay called Mudsharks Coffee Bar. I ordered the vegan carrot lox with cream cheese on a bagel, and although the photo doesn't do it justice, it was really good. We also ordered a brownie for dessert and went for a riverside walk.


To continue with the fun food, I made breakfast for dinner. I made pancakes from the cookbook Fuss-Free Vegan, tofu "eggs," steamed kale with lemon and garlic, and apple slices. I topped my pancakes with vegan butter and maple syrup.

And that's everything I ate today. I hope this inspires you to try some fun vegan food. Thanks for reading!
