Vegetarian Healthy Eating Plan: Menu 2

In trying to be practical, some of this is from the grocery store (i.e. kefir, sprouted bread, etc.) and some of it I make at home (salads, soups, etc).  Where they are my recipes, clicking on the dish will take you to the recipe.

  • All day: 2 L water
  • Pre-workout: Kefir + almond milk – I find kefir too thick to drink so I dilute it with almond milk
  • Post-workout: handful of mixed nuts and dried fruit, coconut water
  • AM Drink: water (8 oz) with 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tsp chia seeds, and a pinch of cayenne (soak chia in plain water overnight- I make 3 days at a time and keep it in the fridge)
  • Breakfast: Breakfast burrito (whole wheat wrap filled with Indian Scrambled Eggs), smoothie
  • AM Snack: Hummus and veggies (carrot, zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli)
  • Lunch: Spicy black bean salad
  • PM Snack: Sprouted bread with almond butter, honey, and banana, green juice
  • Dinner: Tindora and corn shaak (Indian veggie) with brown rice
  • PM Drink: almond milk (8 oz) soaked with 1 date, 2 walnuts, 2 pecan, and 2 almonds (I soak this in the morning and keep it in the fridge)

    • The calories vary based on how much you eat. I don’t calculate calories as much now, I focus more on how much I need to take me to the next meal/snack (usually 3 hours away). As far as balancing, I haven’t done math on the foods. I just tried to hit all the food groups in the day in roughly what the USDA suggests.
