oatmeal and banana
roasted pumpkin seeds and chopped dates mixed together
apple
toasts with peanut butter

Ate out with my local vegan meetup group at a favorite vegan friendly restaurant. I had besan flour polenta, roasted red peppers, fresh cilantro all in lettuce wraps, and a side of fresh fruit; dessert was some kind of vegan rhubarb granita/sorbet sprinkled with nuts. A couple of us shared it.

For dinner last night, we tried jackfruit for the first time - I made taco bowls with rice, jackfruit in a spicy sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, and homemade tortillas made from garbanzo flour. It was so good! ^_^

I still haven't tried jackfruit yet! What does it taste like?

My eats for the day:

breakfast: two whole wheat Ezekiel bread toasts with fat free refried beans and salsa on top; apple

lunch and snacks: mix of chopped dates and pumpkin seeds (slightly salted with shell on); brown lentils, tomatoes, sliced carrots, onion, zucchini simmered and served over polenta; water and coffee

Dinner: sloppy joes (mixture of cooked red bulgur wheat, cooked red lentils, red pepper, onion, tomato paste, blackstrap molasses, lime juice) on whole wheat bun; garden salad including fresh produce from my garden and a tahini based dressing; cashew milk to drink

In the end, only kindness matters. - Jewel

Your meals are so healthy, well balanced, and sound so tasty - you're probably not missing anything! LOL

But to answer your question, I'm actually not 100% certain what the jackfruit by itself tastes like; I received a package as a gift from a friend, pre-sauced and seasoned, so the flavour of the actual jackfruit was somewhat masked. I would say, at my best guess, a little like an underripe apple, but perhaps milder. The texture, on the other hand, was very interesting - soft, but with a bit of give, kind of like a semi-cooked mushroom; sort of meaty but not as tender as actual meat is, if that makes sense ^_^

I made a soup made from a dried bean, barley, and vegetable mixture from a brand called harmony house. They have a ton of different dried vegetables, beans, mixtures for soups and chilies, and I found they have different textured vegetable proteins. So far all the products I've seen from them are vegan. I highly recommend you guys try them out.

I'm getting a pressure cooker and will be relying on a lot of foods from them over the winter.

I think I ordered once from Harmony House for a dehydrated bean/vegetable mix to bring canoe camping. I liked it!

B: blended tofu (one half of a large block), banana, cocoa powder, splash of cashew milk and a fresh stevia leaf from my garden for a rich pudding; also added a pinch of salt and vanilla extract to add to the flavor

lunch and snacks: bowl of oatmeal; homemade chili; whole wheat Ezekiel toasts with blackstrap molasses; apple (tis the season for apples up here!)

dinner: corn shell tacos with Bulgar/red lentil/tomato paste/taco seasoning homemade mix, romaine lettuce, tomato (from my garden), and salsa in them. Cashew milk

In the end, only kindness matters. - Jewel

For breakfast I tend to eat either
fruit
cereal
bread/toast with mushroom and tomato
just toast

I think I need to add something else into the mix for a bit more variety though, not sure what.

B: wild rice with cinnamon and blueberries (made a huge batch of wild rice over the weekend)

L: sandwich with sauerkraut, navy beans, cabbage, and cider vinegar; Daiya yogurt; bowl of plain oatmeal

D: met with my local vegan meetup group and we ate appetizers at a local restaurant and listened to mandolin music. The appetizers were incredible! I had a hummus platter loaded with raw veggies, hummus, sprouts, and pita bread. Someone ordered a ton of custom made (just for us) vegan bruschetta and we all shared that too. Funny thing, even the vegans were impressed that I put away a whole plate of raw veggies, about four cups worth lol. And every one of those lovely raw veggies was dipped in a little hummus.

breakfast: soy green tea latte, french bread with peanut butter

lunch: I bought a cup of tomato soup from the local market, and a frozen Gardein pocket thing... the Gardein thingy was SO GOOD, I was really impressed - the soup however, I'm pretty sure had some sort of dairy in it, which wasn't listed on the ingredients (you can tell when a tomato soup is pink, there's something in there that shouldn't be, unless a vegan made it LOL) so I gave it to a coworker and happily ate my Gardein pocket thingy all by itself LOL

Portobello stew with eggless pasta. You cut up some onion, put it on olive oil, toast it a bit, put the sliced mushroom in, let it roast a bit without stirring, then some water, a little bit of salt, paprika and garlic, and I like the stew to be thicker, so I stir two tablespoon of corn starch with a little bit of warm water, and slowly pour it into the stew. It tastes amazing, I think I could eat this at least three times a week. I imagine you can prepare it with soy as well. Other than that, I ate four bananas and drank three Biotech rice protein shake, for a total of 2000 kcal, give or take. Tomorrow I'm going to cook some spinach for a thick vegetable stew (I believe you guys don't have a specific word for these vegetable stews we have in Hungary, or maybe it's stew). I also plan to do cook a portobello burger with vegan cheese. Never tried that before, so fingers crossed.

Breakfast: Wegmans spoon-sized shredded wheat cereal, a large banana, almond milk, and orange juice.

Lunch: A huge (1+ pound) salad with added cup of black beans, 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts, and one slice of whole wheat bread.

Dinner: Made a huge batch of "veggie confetti chili" from Robin Robertson's, The Vegetarian Chili Cookbook. I served this over white basmati rice. I wish I had a digital camera: the chili featured every color in the rainbow and it tasted as good as it looked. A great recipe for the cooler fall weather.

Breakfast: canned pumpkin, banana, Plantfusion protein powder all mixed together in a bowl

snacks/lunch: homemade bran muffin (with banana, wheat germ, blackstrap molasses), orange, carrot & white bean soup, garden salad with thousand Island dressing (Just Thousand from Hampton Creek)

dinner: ate out with my local vegan Meetup group again. This time we were a crowd of seven which was nice. We all pitched in and ordered a bunch of appetizers since those were the only veganizable dishes. I had tortilla chips and black bean dip (they made it vegan for me), raw veggies and hummus, bruschetta with some kind of balsamic/vegetable toppings, hot herbal lemon tea.

In the end, only kindness matters. - Jewel

I include soy milk and tofu in my vegan diet. The soy products are useful for providing sufficient amount of proteins, calcium and fiber. FDA had approved including 25 gm of soy product in your vegan diet. I also add some dry fruits in my diet such as Pistachio, cashews nuts and walnuts.

So happy to be eating vegan for pretty much a week now! <3
Breakfast: two slices of toast with vegan margarine (not a big breakfast person)
After workout snack: Strawberry Banana Smoothie (my own recipe: small hand full of frozen strawberries 1 frozen banana 100% orange juice and a hand full of oats. Then blend until desired smoothness!) It's so yummy and just gives me a burst of energy and keeps me feeling healthy.
Lunch: Veggie with rice stir fry: Veggies used: broccoli, red and yellow bell pepper, mushrooms, red onion (pretty much whatever veggies i have that might go bad within a few days) spices used: soy sauce, cumin, chill power, black pepper. Once cooked put over Jasmine rice and it's soooooo good!!! Oh and I used like 1-2 caps of veggie oil.
Dinner: Veggie Soup from a tin even tho i hate having food from cans I eat them when i'm feeling lazy.
snacks: Omg not the healthist snacks but here we go: some Oreos, a small bag of plain lays chips and I roasted potatoes later at night.
OMG I'M SO HAPPY I'VE BEEN VEGAN FOR LIKE A WEEK!!!!

Breakfast: oatmeal with soy milk, blueberries, and an artificial sweetener.

Lunch: Trader Joe's Vegetable Fried Rice (which is vegan) with 4 oz. sauteed tempeh added.

The taco filling was: (1) faux beef consisting of Beyond Meat Beefy Crumbles, nooch (for umami), corn starch (for thickening), canola oil (for fat), liquid smoke (for flavor), and Mrs. Dash taco seasoning packet; (2) Trader Joe's vegan mozzerella shreds, and (3) shredded lettuce. The refried beans were Amy's Brand, traditional pinto, reduced sodium.

Late night snack: Almonds, roasted and salted.
