Happy Friday! Chris and I are back with another video and blog post for our “What A Vegan Couple Eats In a Day” series. You can check out all of the recipes and video below, and please let us know what you think! 🙂

✳︎・Breakfast・✳︎

Oatmeal has been my GO TO breakfast the past couple of months, zucchini oatmeal specifically. You can’t taste the zucchini + it adds some veggies and volume to the meal! I top mine off with whatever I have on hand + always a scoop of nut butter and man oh man it’s the best. Writing this is making me want to get up and make some even though I just had lunch 😛

Chris opted for a Tofu Scramble with veggies that we needed to use up in the fridge. He ate it as is, but you can definitely serve it with toast, in a tortilla, with hot sauce, etc.

✳︎・Lunch・✳︎

For my lunch I threw a bunch of leftovers I had in the fridge and made this beautiful & easy bowl! I wrote the recipe out for you below so that you can make it + store the leftovers for easy already prepared meal(s) the following days.

For Chris’ lunch, he made use of our plethora of Western Bagels and made himself an epic Grilled Cheese bagel. If you are interested in Western Bagel, we highly recommend you try out their Perfect 10 and Everything bagels. You can use our code “simplevegan” for a discount!

✳︎・Snacks・✳︎

We forgot to snap a photo of our snacks but you can check them out in the video above! I had apples, a banana, snap peas while Chris had some I Heart Keenwah puffs and we both had some bites of dark chocolate.


✳︎・Dinner・✳︎

Dinner was an easy soup. Chris and I were introduced to a place called Pea Soup Anderson’s on our way to Sonoma last year, and we just had to recreate it! Of course ours isn’t exactly the same as theirs, but we added our own little flair and topped with with bagel croutons because why not 😉
