I know a lot of you enjoy my content about food so since it’s foodie Friday I decided to write a What I Eat In A Day post. I feel like I haven’t done one of these in a long time and my eating habits have changed a little since moving back to Kenya so I decided to share some of my meals with you guys.
As you guys know all the dishes I share are vegan/plant-based. I hope you enjoy the post because I definitely enjoyed eating these delicious dishes!
I generally don’t like eating for breakfast. I just don’t feel like breakfast is my main meal and so I tend to skip it most of the time. I don’t like being on an empty stomach completely so I usually drink a little something. Sometimes I drink some tea or have some juice or smoothie. On this day, my mum had made some mung tea for herself so I ended up drinking some too. It’s a good source of protein, it keeps you full throughout the morning and it’s not too heavy so you don’t feel lazy. If you haven’t tried it I would definitely recommend it with a few drops of lemon.
I love eggplants so I had bought a bunch of them but unfortunately I didn’t have the chance to use them all week so basically I had a bunch of eggplants I needed to use on this day. Since I’m super lazy sometimes when it comes to cooking I made something I can make really quickly and that I don’t need to put too much work into. I ended up making a Korean eggplant side dish and eating it with rice.
As you guys probably know if you’ve been following my blog for a while, I love Korean food and it’s probably my favourite type of food so I really enjoyed this meal. No one else in my family likes eggplant but my dad and sister did try some of it and they both said it was good (I don’t know if they agree or if they’re just trying to spare my feelings but I’ll just take the compliment, lol).
I wasn’t too hungry for dinner and I had rice and eggplant left (yes, I bought a lot of eggplants don’t judge me) so I decided to just make something with that. I ended up making some veggie fried rice with a bunch of fresh vegetables and a lot of chickpeas for protein some. I don’t love the taste of chickpeas but I eat them quite often since they’re high in protein. I don’t hate them but they’re not my favourite thing in the world. I also made some stir fried eggplant on the side to eat with the rice.
The meal was of course incredible and I will definitely be making it again (mostly because I still have two eggplants I need to use…). I really liked how simple but filling this meal was. My mum and I had also made some vegan chocolate a while back so I ended the meal with a bit of vegan chocolate. I forgot to take a picture of it and I’m too lazy to take a picture now so just use your imagination.
Overall, everything was really delicious. It was all so good I can’t pick a favourite even if I try. I will be making all these dishes again since they’re relatively easy to make and the ingredients are readily available. Let me know in the comments if you would like me to share any the recipes of any of the dishes I mentioned on this post and I’ll be more than happy to do so!
