My overall meal plan is a combination of aspects of the vegan and paleo diet. I typically eat vegan for my breakfast, lunch, and snacks during the day. In the evening specifically for dinner I eat meat. 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 and/or paleo diet like meat, beans, corn, soy, and wheat. I still believe in consuming almost anything in moderation. You can find a reason to almost any food unhealthy. Nothing is every completely off limits to me. Here is my diet and some meal options on a typically “healthy” day.
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 lean meats, vegetables, and the occasional gluten-free starch
