What I Eat In A Day #13

What I Eat In A Day

What I Eat In A Day

I’m back with another “What I Eat In A Day” post since I know many of you guys enjoy my food related posts. I tried to switch things up a bit with this post since I feel like I posted a lot of Indian dishes. Which I love, but sometimes I feel like change is good too.

Anyway, as always all the foods and drinks shared are plant-based/vegan.

For breakfast, I had some tea as I usually do but I always forget to take a picture of it. And you guys know what tea looks like so yeah. Just imagine the gif is me waking up in the morning having some tea.


Vegan Korean Chickpea Recipe

I was craving Korean food so for lunch I decided to make this protein filled Korean bowl. It has some rice, Korean style chickpeas and some green onion kimchi. This was one of my favourite Korean dishes I’ve made. Obviously it’s not super authentic since I used chickpeas instead of meat but the sauces were Korean and so incredibly delicious. I don’t usually like chickpeas if I’m being honest. I know they’re a favourite among vegans. But I’m just not a fan. I’ve tried chickpeas in so many different recipes but this is one of the few that I absolutely would make again. I loved it and it was so satisfying. And easy to make which is a little bonus!

If you’re interested in the Korean chickpea recipe you can watch it on my YouTube channel:


What I Eat In A Day

For dinner, I had an Indian classic- Pav Bhaji. “Pav” means bun and “Bhaji” is the curry you eat with the bun. and that’s why it’s called Pav Bhaji. If you haven’t had this dish I would so recommend it. It’s so delicious and satisfying. We don’t make it authentically because it needs a lot of butter and vegan butter is expensive lol. Also, it’s not healthy to eat that much. So we make a healthy version of the classic and add lots of veggies. I did add a bit of butter to the bun though because life is short and it’s okay to treat yourself occasionally. Everything was garnished with onions and coriander. This is one of my favourite foods and always so delicious!

I really hope you enjoyed this post. I did because I got to eat lots of delicious food lol. That’s secretly the main reason I post these WIEIAD posts haha. Anyway, that’s pretty much what I eat in a day as someone that is plant-based and likes to keep it fun with different dishes. I hope you try my chickpea recipe because it’s so easy to make and tastes so incredible. I’m hoping to make it for some cousins next week, actually.

  1. I’m not vegan but I’ll try your food, Pooja. ❤️

    1. Aw, thank you!! ❤️

      1. 🤙🏻❤️❤️

  2. It looks delicious, Pooja; I always enjoy your “what I eat in a day” posts!

    1. Thanks so much, so glad you enjoy them!

      1. My pleasure! Pooja😊🙏

  3. Is vegan butter different than margarine? I’m not familiar. I’m assuming that there is no actual milk in vegan butter since vegan. Sounds interesting – the meals I mean.

    1. I’m not sure if it’s that different from margarine. It says vegan butter on the container but the ingredients may be similar. I haven’t used margarine so I’m not too sure.
      Thanks so much.

      1. Here there are choices for margarines with the oils used…olive, avocado etc…so not sure if same or different. Might be some non-vegan stuff in some margarines. One of the Becel we have says Vegan. Not sure if you priced or matched ingredients if it might be a reduced cost option or not. Also depends on brands you have available I guess. Hope it helps.

        1. Yeah, I used to see those at like Zehrs and other grocery places but I’ve never tried it. It would definitely be cheaper to get margarine if it’s vegan. I’ll check here but most of the margarines I’ve heard of are either not great quality or not vegan.

          1. Can’t make anything worse to look. You can always determine quality and ingredients on the container. Gives potential for options.

            1. Absolutely, thanks for the suggestion.

  4. Korean food is great! Especially when you are in the country of beautiful Korean ppl, their food tastes even better. Indian food is very good, I love dosa, and other dishes I don’t know the names of. I wanted to ask about your morning tea, I hope it wasn’t Lipton. I’m having breakfast right now, it’s tea with bread, avocado, cherry tomatoes and probiotic drink. I bought this really fancy citrus tea of berries, lemon, orange and chamomile. It’s very good

    1. Winter is fast approaching, and I am ready to start drinking tea again. I really like green tea, but I would like to incorporate some other flavors and brands.

      1. I would recommend spearmint or peppermint tea during winter because it really warms you up and keeps your immunity high.

        1. I do have peppermint. I better restock now before winter really arrives, and it will be hard to find. Now spearmint seems different.

          1. Yeah, spearmint is so beneficial for our health and great for cold weather. Would definitely recommend giving it a try.

    2. I want to visit Korea so bad, I would love to try real authentic Korean food.
      I love dosa so much, it’s one of my favourite South Indian foods.
      I usually drink chamomile because that helps with digestion and sleep. But occasionally I’ll drink spearmint tea too. Citrus tea sounds delicious. Your breakfast sounds very healthy and delicious. Hope you enjoyed it.

  5. Looks delicious 😍😍😋

    1. Thanks so much 😊

      So sorry for the late reply, your comment was stuck in my spam folder for some reason.

  6. Your food looks delicious. With the amount of junk food I eat I would be embarrassed to post what I eat in a day. Every day I say today is the day I only eat healthy food then the habits kick in.

    1. I used to be that way too but had to change my diet quite a bit for health reasons. It’s hard to change and incorporate healthy foods. Unhealthy food can be so addictive.

  7. Looks like a balanced menu.

    1. Yeah, I try to eat as healthy as possible and include all the necessary stuff. Of course, sometimes I eat junk but that’s okay as a treat 😅

      1. Once in a while it’s okay to have something fun.

        1. Exactly. Otherwise life gets boring.

          1. Absolutely right.

  8. Can’t decide which looks better 😋 both seem great to try.

    with you on the breakfast 🤭

    1. Thank you and yeah breakfast is my least favourite meal lol 😅

  9. Have you tried Aloo Tikki which is made with potato patties?

    1. I have and they are quite delicious.

  10. I had an egg and cheese on a biscuit sandwich for breakfast. Had a vege-burger (soy based) for lunch and then half of a cheese pizza for dinner. Then I had a lot of doritos chips for a snack later.

    Best of luck with the youtube channel. Don’t spread yourself out too much though…

    1. Oh yum, I had a burger for lunch and pizza for dinner too! What a cool coincidence.

      Thanks so much. Yeah, I’m only posting there once a week because any more than that and I wouldn’t be able to spend enough time blogging.

      1. Yay for coincidences! 😀

        We didn’t choose the blogging life, the blogging life chose us.
        hahahaha 😉

        1. Loll truth 😅

  11. It looks quite healthy. And it’s inspiring that your posting your about this regularly. A lot of people struggle on their journey, and you show simple meal ideas as well. 👏💙🙏

    1. Thanks so much. Yeah, I try to share my meals at least once every week or so. I always enjoy seeing what others eat as well, I think it’s fun to inspire one another like that.

  12. Aha interesting

    Good girl, you are not starving and all and always eat the best home cooked meal. 🤗

    Also, loved the picture quality, I know how you do it. It’s professional.
    Who’s voice is that? Yours or RG?

    I think what makes it korean and not indian chickpea rice is the korean spices. As you told me, it’s on Amazon. Need to see if those are actually available locally. Need to do some research.

    Loved it dear friend. Keep sharing.
    Also won’t mind seeing the actual person eating it 😝

    1. Lol, of course. I love food too much to starve 😅

      Thanks so much and it’s my voice.

      Yeah, I think the biggest difference is the Korean style sauce.

      Thanks, lol maybe it’s time to do mukbangs so you can have both 😜

  13. I remember you wrote another post about Korean food not too long ago, so you may remember that I love it.
    Your “tea” GIF is adorable!

    1. Yes, I remember! Thank you, that’s literally how I have tea staring out of our window lol.

  14. I have been out of touch the past few days and reading your posts brought me back to why I should not stop blogging! Lol. The foods look delish as always. I think I would prefer Indian cuisine over Korean but would never say no to a mix of both worlds!

    1. Happy to hear that! Thanks and I get it, Indian food has a special place in my heart too although I do love Korean too!

  15. I enjoy your food posts, Pooja, because I learn about different foods I’ve not heard of.

    1. Glad you enjoy them, it’s always fun to learn about new foods.

  16. Pav bhaji looked amazing.

    1. Thanks so much, it tasted amazing too.

  17. I’ve had authentic Indian food and I am honestly obsessed with naan, paneer, butter chicken and, briyani.

    1. Indian food is always delicious, biryani is definitely one of my favourites.

  18. I first heard of pav bhaji from some cooking show that was focusing on different street food in India. I love Indian food so I’ll def give it a try one day😊

    1. Yeah, it’s a very popular street food and so delicious. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it 😀

  19. The food looks absolutely delicious I definitely want to try Pav Bhaji as I love curry dishes thanks for sharing

    1. Thanks so much and I’m sure you’ll love Pav Bhaji. It’s a curry dish with a twist.

  20. I definitley love Indian food….I’ve been tempted by kimchi, but haven’t tried it yet….

    1. It’s good! It’s also pretty healthy for you !

    2. I would really recommend trying kimchi, it’s so delicious and flavourful.

  21. I would love to try that chickpea dish !!! I love Korean BBQ and kimchi so I think I’d really enjoy this 🙂 thanks for sharing !

    1. I’m sure you’d love the chickpea dish then since it has Korean flavours. My pleasure! 😊

      1. Yes!!! I love how flavorful Korean food is !!!

        1. Absolutely, it’s flavourful and the flavours are quite unique compared to other dishes I’ve tried!

  22. Yeah!
    Korean style sauce is the difference maker. Will try it.

    Thanks for sharing. Also, hows your health now?

    1. I’m fine now, recovered from the poisoning.

      1. Good!!

        Take care…..

  23. I just had Korean kimchi noodles.

    1. That’s great, those are so delicious.

  24. Love these posts from you

    1. Thanks so much!

  25. Interesting to read what you eat, food is more important than we realize for our mood and mental health. I really don’t eat very much in a day myself, but I do mainly try to have healthy meals with snacks now and then.

    1. Thanks so much and very true. I’m glad you try to eat healthy meals as well.

      1. So nice to hear from you today, I just published a new post on my new blog Nutttin But Deals

        1. Oh nice, I’ll check it out.

          1. I am back, Pooja

            1. That’s wonderful, hope everything is well with you.

              1. How have you been my sweet friend

                1. I’m doing well, it’s so nice to hear from you again. How have you been?

  26. You eat so many interesting dishes. I like how you make everything vegan. You make me hungry for Korean and Indian food.

    1. Thanks so much. I would so recommend trying both.

  27. Delicious sounding food, as usual! Great post!

    1. Thanks, it was all very delicious tasting too! 😉

      1. I’ll bet it was! 😃

  28. Your food always looks so good, it makes me think I could go vegan! Just kidding! There’s so much I can’t eat, that meat is essential for me. Today I had a Spinach-Bluberry-Cashew-yogurt smoothie with almond protein powder and a touch of stevia-monkfruit sweetener, which you could totally eat. I had my Ningxia Red and supplements (always so important!!!) For lunch, our main meal, Child #4 made pounded sirloin steak and waffle fries (the only kind we can find that don’t have dextrose, and so, a nice treat!) Child #4 and I gave blood today and our iron levels were finally high enough (thank you spinach and beef!!!) so we also drank a lot of water. After the blood donation, I had brought two white chocolate – macadamia nut bars with (one for each, which he didn’t even eat, but rather had raisins!) so I had one of those. I find it’s best to bring my own snacks, since you never know if they will have anything gluten and processed sugar free. I don’t know what I’ll have for dinner, but probably a green leaf lettuce salad with tuna, black olives, and any other veggies I can find! Yum!

    1. Since you’re already gluten-free it would be very tough to go vegan but it’s great to include more fruits and veggies into the diet. That sounds like a day of healthy eating with some delicious treats!

  29. I’d like to try what you had for dinner!

    1. It was so good!

  30. The dishes looked delish. I have never had Korean food before, but we don’t have any Korean restaurants here where I live, but I do like chickpeas. They are good in dishes, or just by themselves in my opinion. Sorry for responding so late, just been busy with school and taking exams. I passed all of my first four exams Friday. I also had a bad asthma attack, but I am still recovering from that, but all in all I think I just may need some rest because working two jobs and going to school is hard. Still trying to figure out how to balance it all. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week.

    1. Thanks so much. If you ever get the chance to try Korean food, I would really recommend it. Congratulations on passing your exams, that’s wonderful. I can imagine how hard that must be but stay strong. You’ll get into a routine that works for you soon. Have a great week too.

      1. Yeah, I am just trying to figure it all out.

        1. Don’t worry. Just have faith that everything will work our as it’s supposed to.

          1. I know. This is all so new and exciting. I never thought I would be attending school at 48 years old. I am so happy and grateful to see my dreams come true and experience them to have a better future.

            1. It’s never too late to achieve your dreams. Stay happy and continue working towards your dream.

              1. I will. Thanks for the encouragement.

                1. My pleasure.

  31. I love Korean Food. Just had a late lunch/ early supper at a Korean restaurant near work. My go to is Bibimbop.

    1. That’s awesome. I love bibimbap too, it’s always so delicious. Have you had it with soybean stew? It’s the best combo.

      1. They had some small, well flavored pieces of tofu to add to it. Never tried it with soybean stew.

        1. That’s great, the one I tried at a restaurant had soy “meat” and when I make it at home I usually add tofu too. Soybean stew is delicious and even better with bibimbap.

  32. I forgot aboy youtube, headed there right about now! Congratulations!

    1. Thank you, really appreciate that!
