Try Vegan: 7 day meal plan – Day 3

Breakfast

Hearty breakfast smoothie

2/3 c quick oats
1 ½ c non-dairy milk of choice
2 frozen bananas *
10 strawberries (fresh or frozen)
¼ c peanut butter (or other nut butter)
2 tbsp ground linseed (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

*This will also work with fresh bananas, however I think the texture is nicer with frozen. Peel the bananas the night before, cut into chunks, and pop them in a plastic bag in the freezer for the morning.

Lunch

Hummus and vege sandwich

4 slices bread
Hummus
1 tomato, sliced
lettuce leaves
cucumber, sliced
½ small red onion, sliced
alfalfa sprouts, or similar
optional side – potato crisps

Toast bread if desired. Spread some hummus on each slice. Add half of veggies to each sandwich and close.

Dinner

Sauté broccoli in a large pan over medium heat in 2 tsp olive oil for about 7 minutes. Keep covered except to stir a few times. Remove from pan and set aside. Sauté onions in 2 tsp oil for about 3 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with the broccoli. Sauté the garlic and ginger in a little oil for about 1 minute.
