My overall meal plan is plant based. I used to include a combination of aspects of the vegan and paleo diet, but know I am trying to be completely plant based. I try to keep everything gluten-free, more due to my wheat allergy than because I think gluten is “bad”. I eat some controversial foods in the vegan diet like corn, soy, wheat, and vegan cheeses and other junk food from time to time. I still believe in consuming almost anything in moderation. You can find a reason to make almost any food unhealthy. But my research has led me to believe limiting animal products in best.
Breakfast: smoothies, energy balls, chia pudding, scrambled tofu, vegan gluten free muffins, or oatmeal
Lunch- salads, hummus and veggies, vegan bowls, lettuce wraps with chickpea (chicken) salad, veggie noodles (spaghetti squash or zoodles) & sauce (vegan pesto, peanut sauce, or vegan cheese sauce)
snacks-nuts, fruits, kale chips, hummus & veggies, dark chocolate
dinners- various combinations of protein, vegetables, and the occasional gluten-free starch. I try to veganize whatever the family meal is as a transition my husband and son to a (mostly) plant based diet as well.
