I thought it might be fun (and inspirational) to do a picture version of the "What did you eat vegan today?" thread.

So, for fun, take a cell phone pic of your vegan breakfast, lunch, and dinner and post it in one reply.

Sweet! This is a nice idea.
Especially the... um... can we call it 'rule?' about including pics?
Some threads just feel like bragging.
But pictures change it from bragging to an actual work of art!!! (with some bragging, but at least the pics make the bragging fun... or is that just me?)

Prepare yourselves!
For tomorrow, you will have grainy cell phone images of my typical work day's meal plan!

Give thanks to Mother Earth for Her greatest gift...

Breakfast: Cereal with banana and soy milk


Lunch: Sproutofu Burger with rice cheese and orange slices (my burger looks so sad because I was all out of lettuce and tomato)


Dinner: Veggie Chili, some tortilla chips, and cherries


Still didn't get any greens in, but I went grocery shopping tonight so I'm all stocked up now.

Your pics are pretty good, too. You and greenish should take pics for VegNews. I hear they need some help.

I don't know about you guys, but I like my Vegan cuisine with lots of spices. My dishes always spark with a spicy zing. There is a perception that Vegan food is boring and bland, well the dishes I prepare are so far from that flawed perception.

I find that if I eat a bland meal (especially for dinner), I'm just not satisfied and I wind up looking for a snack later. If it's well seasoned and flavorful, I'm content.

By the way Cultus, I've really enjoyed seeing your meals. I'd never heard of callaloo or ackee and I don't think I've ever prepared broadbeans. That's one of the reasons I love seeing the pictures! Thanks for sharing.

That's one of the Joys of being Vegan in the Caribbean. There are a plethora of plants, fruits, seasonings, herbs etc at your disposal. I mean there is never a Dull moment. I'm going to show you what we Caribbean Vegans enjoy. It's totally amazing. What makes it even more intriguing is when you merge the different cultures here and adopt their cuisine creating the Vegan version. The spices make your palate go into a frenzy.

Breakfast This Morning - Vegan Pizza (RAW) nothing is cooked. Absolutely Tasty. This contains too many veggies and seasoning to remember. The Crust is made from a variety of seeds


My Drink - Beetroot Juice plus Pineapple Juice


I didn't make these though. I get foods & juice like this from a Raw Food Restaurant where I live.

Lunch - Raw Vegan Burger I had this with passion fruit juice

That veggie pizza looks crazy good! And you didn't even have to make it yourself.

Here's today:

Breakfast: steel cut oats with walnuts, raisins, and maple syrup


Lunch: green salad with lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, sunflower seed, and balsamic vinaigrette with a peach for dessert


Dinner: veggie stir fry with snow peas, onions, red chili, and shiitake mushrooms, with a sprinkling of sesame seeds.

where you from Cultus? trying to figure out what kind of cuisine that is. Wherever it's from, it looks really good.

I'm presently between Jamaica, The Bahamas and Barbados. What you are seeing now are from Jamaica. The same kind of foods span the entire Caribbean, but the seasonings and preparation style is the major difference. Jamaicans have a Spicy palate, the same applies to the Bahamians. The Bajans however have a milder almost blandish palate. The Trinis also love spicy foods. I have traveled throughout most of the Caribbean so I get to enjoy the carious styles of Vegan food preparation.

Dinner Last Night
I got this from a popular grill restaurant Island Grill "Veggie Stew Peas with Shredded Veggies & Plantains" With some Aloe Vera Drink.


Breakfast Just a while ago... Pineapples, Jack Fruit and Sugar Canes....Delish With my morning dose of Ultra Mangosteen, My Vegan MultiVitamin & 16 fl oz of Bottled Water

I didn't start yesterday, because I was halfway through my lunch before I remembered I wanted to take a picture. Not that it matters... I always eat the exact same thing five days in a row. I prepare all of my workweek foods in advance so I can just relax in the evenings.

BREAKFAST:
5am
A banana, a handful of dates, and soymilk with Nesquik stirred in. It looks like a lot of pills, but its mostly my natural green vitamins, which call for 6 pill dosages.

------

BRUNCH:
7am
I've just arrived at work. I pre-make these oatmeal bowls, too. Most of the good stuff is in the bottom. I just add water at work, and microwave for a minute. It's just regular Kroger brand rolled oats with a bunch of raisins, cinnamon, walnuts, sugar, salt, and a few tablespoons of flaxseeds. Right... Plus another banana.
Attachment 15596

-------

LUNCH:
12:30pm I take lunch very seriously. Normally, all of this would be on one big plate, but I was out of my larger plates, so I was forced to use my oatmeal bowls. Bowl1=Fried onions and baked beans... Bowl2=Brussel Sprouts and Carrots that had been simmered in veggie broth. Plate: A fake soy drumstick and fake chicken strips I got from a local vegan cafe. Plus, curried chickpeas, cabbage, and rice.
Attachment 15597

------
DINNER:
6pm
Dinner is my least serious meal of the day. I usually just skip it, but cantaloupes were on sale for $1 each. If I do feel a bit hungry, I'll normally have something extremely light. My slicing was a bit clumsy...possibly explainable by the fact that the beer bottles are empty.

My Dinner - Veggie Stew Peas with Shredded Veggies & Plantains (ripe and green). I just here munching on some sugar cane now. It's my guilty pleasure. I do have a natural sweet tooth.

I made this vegan mushroom calzone for dinner today. It's my first calzone I've ever made so it was really messy and took me a while, but it was really good! Also it looks like it has sauce on top because it was coming out when I cut it so I just started putting it on top so it was more of a half-pizza half-calzone :P I only about about a third of it and I saved the rest for later because I didn't realize how big it would be even though I was really hungry. I also put in some chopped spinach with the mushrooms and sauce.
