I feel as though I haven’t done one of these posts in a little while so here I am with another What I Eat In A Day post. I would also love it if you check out my older WIEIAD by clicking here if you’re into those kinds of posts. I really love making these posts because I have kind of a basic meal on most days but when I write these kinds of posts I get to try new things or things I’m really craving.
Just a little heads up- all the foods mentioned are vegan/plant based and do not contain any animal products.
For breakfast I usually like to keep it simple and not really eat anything heavy. I know some people love big breakfasts but I am clearly not one of those people. I am not a big soy milk fan but I do love anything strawberry flavoured so I decided to drink some soy milk for breakfast.
This is probably my favourite strawberry flavoured soy milk because it doesn’t have that fake strawberry taste some things have. It tastes like real strawberry which I love. I would definitely recommend trying it if it’s available in your area.
For lunch, I had something rice based like I usually do. I had some plain rice with. chickpea curry and roasted eggplant and tomato. I’m not a huge fan of chickpeas but they are a good source of protein and I hadn’t eaten them in a while so I decided to make some. They actually turned out quite delicious but the real stars of the meal were the roasted eggplant and roasted tomato. They had that delicious smoky flavour that I love. And yes, those are my pjs in the background lol!
I made the chickpea curry myself but my mum made the rice, eggplant and tomato. So, if I’m being honest she was the one I have to thank for most of the meal. I would highly recommend this combination, it was so delicious. However, if you’re not that into chickpeas, beans and rice would go amazing too.
So, this was a recipe I was so extremely excited for. If you’re brown or even just co-exist with brown people, you probably know about Maggi noodles. They’re really delicious although admittedly not the healthiest. But, sometimes unhealthy food is great for your soul lol!
I saw a recipe for soupy Maggi on YouTube a while back but for some reason there was like a Maggi shortage in Nairobi and I couldn’t get it for a while. But I had saved the video and was finally able to make it some time ago. It was so incredibly delicious. It had that Maggi flavour but also other flavours from the vegetables. If you like Maggi noodles I would highly recommend trying them like this. In case you’re interested, this was the recipe I used however I modified it because she made it quite spicy and I didn’t want to be in the bathroom for the next 24 hours so I left out the pepper powder and added only one green pepper. If you’re not great with spicy food I would recommend doing that or clearing your schedule the next day…
I had some vegan homemade strawberry ice cream but I think it was too sour cos it made me feel nauseous and gave me acid reflux. Whoops… Also, I forgot to take a picture of it. Double whoops…
This was the absolute worst day I picked to write a WIEIAD post. I have been nauseous all day and just there up while writing this. Thinking of all this food made me feel so much worse lol. But I’m a trooper so I kept going for whatever reason… (I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed)
That being said, I did love these meals when I stay them and I would so recommend trying them out if you haven’t already. If you would like me to share the recipes for any of the above mentioned dishes please let me know in the comments because I would love to share them if you guys are interested.
What did you eat today? Would you try any of the dishes I mentioned? Do you have a good recipe for strawberry ice cream that won’t give me acid reflux? What is your favourite food at the moment? Let me know in the comments below because I would love to hear from you!
