What I Eat In A Day
I feel like I haven’t done a “What I Eat In A Day” post in quite a while so I decided to do one today. As I’ve mentioned before, I generally try to eat really healthy. And more recently I’ve been trying to cut out oil and other refined products as much as possible. They were making me feel physically ill and cutting them out has made me feel so good. However, I do enjoy eating something oily once in a while and have cheat days like once a month or so where I eat whatever I feel like even if it’s not healthy. Since, I’ve shared what I eat in a day when I eat healthy, I decided to do the opposite and share what I eat in a day on my cheat days.
All foods mentioned are vegan/plant based.
For breakfast, I had some guava juice my mum made. I absolutely love guava and it’s in season right now so they taste so fresh and delicious. Usually, I don’t like eating for breakfast because it makes me feel gross. I like to have a very light breakfast or no food at all just something to drink. I forgot to take a picture of the juice so my apologies. My brain hadn’t started working yet lol.
This is where things get interesting. Usually, my biggest meal for the day is lunch. Since, it was a cheat day, I decided to go out for lunch with my cousin and my sister. We went to a restaurant called Veggie Veg. It’s pretty affordable and the food is really good. Even though it’s not exactly stuff we ordered, it wasn’t excessively oily and tasted so fresh. Plus, as you may remember I have been having bad luck with the service at restaurants. But the server here was so good. He was really fast, had a very social personality and was very helpful even though I kept asking him if stuff had dairy in it lol.
To start with, we had poussin chips which is a Kenyan dish I believe. It’s fries/chips with a special sauce which is so delicious. Some people make it with butter so if you ever try it and are vegan like me, please ask in advance. We also ordered a sandwich which came with plain fries and coleslaw. And lastly, we ordered Maru bhajia which was my favourite out of all three. They were so crispy but not dry at all. Maru bhajia is a Kenyan fried potato dish which brings together both Indian and Kenyan flavours. I would HIGHLY recommend trying Maru bhajia if you ever get the chance.
For our main course, we ordered a potato (Kashmiri dum aloo) curry and naan. Again, always ask the server if the naan has any dairy products because it’s sometimes made with butter or milk. If you’re vegan, ask in advance. The curry was amazing, it was the perfect amount of spicy for me. And the naan was the softest, most perfectly cooked naan I have ever eaten.
I wasn’t hungry for dinner since I had a late lunch that was heavier than what I’m used to. I don’t like forcing myself to eat when I’m not hungry. It’s not healthy to do that in my opinion and will just make me ill. So, I ended up eating this vegan croissant that I got from Spring Valley Coffee. They make them on order for anyone interested. It was delicious and filled with berry jam!
I hope everyone enjoyed this What I Eat In A Day post. I tried to make this one different. Usually, I share foods that are either Western or Indian but today I thought I would share some stuff we eat regularly in Kenya. At least I do lol. I feel like many of these dishes are very specific to Kenya and that’s why I picked them. Most of my readers aren’t Kenyan or Indian so hopefully you guys saw some new dishes today.
