What I Eat In A Day (Vegan, Gluten Free And Oil Free)

What I Eat In A Day

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 wanted to share one today. As you guys know, my diet is a bit restricted due to health reasons. My primary goal is never to lose a bunch of weight or anything like that. It’s to eat as healthy as I can. So the majority of the month I eat oil free and gluten free. And all dishes mentioned are vegan/plant based too. Hope you enjoy the post!

Oh, and if you want me to share any of the recipes minus the cauliflower bites since I already shared that let me know in the comments and I’d be happy to do so.


Vegan Oil Free Cauliflower Bites Recipe

As you guys know, I am absolutely not a breakfast person. In fact, I almost always skip it and I’ve mentioned this on my other “What I Eat In A Day” posts. But today, I decided to eat some of these cauliflower bites. We had made them before and decided to make them again because they were so delicious. And by we I mean my mum lol. So for once, I actually had breakfast and loved it. And if you want to try them yourself, I’ve shared the recipe before. You can read the written version or watch the recipe on YouTube:


What I Eat In A Day, Vegan, Gluten Free And Oil Free

For lunch I had some rice with chickpea curry, steamed okra and sliced cucumber. It was really delicious. I’m not used to having breakfast so I wasn’t too hungry. I just wanted to eat something simple and delicious. And this was perfect for it. Minus the okra, I don’t like the taste of okra or the texture but it’s really good for health especially for women so I eat some once in a while.

For dinner, I ate this burrito bowl that my mum made and I paired it with some spring onion kimchi that I had been trying to finish because I needed the jar for some other kimchi I wanted to make lol. The kimchi cycle never ends. But it was actually a good combo. Like the kimchi brought an extra spark to the meal.


So, that was what I ate in a day. If you enjoyed this post and would like to see the video version of it, here it is:

  1. Oh, I enjoy it so much. Cauliflower bites look delicious. Thanks for sharing this.😊🤗🧿🙏For health purposes, we should eat healthy food. You are doing well. Keep it up, pooja!🙏

    1. Thanks so much, health is very important and yes we should try to eat healthy! 😊

      1. My pleasure, Pooja😊🥰🧿🧿🙏

  2. I haven’t had steamed ochra in years. You just triggered a craving..
    Great job and sticking to your health goals Pooja G. 🙏

    1. You should, they’re actually really good steamed. Not the best since I don’t like okra but still not bad at all.
      Thanks so much 😊

  3. About 4 years ago, when I worked in Death Valley National Park, the cook made the employees some sliced okra that had a yummy lemony flavor (wish I knew the recipe for that…usually I have fried okra which I always like.

    1. Wow, that sounds so delicious. More sour okra definitely tastes better. I rarely have it fried but I’ve had it a few times and that’s one way I actually liked it.

  4. You made me emotional by sharing a pic of breakfast 🥹

    Atleast you had something.

    Lady finger good for ladies, hmmm interesting 🤔
    That’s a different combination with Chickpeas 😃

    The dinner ufff, love it.

    Your pics are always so good. Do you get that red velvet cloth especially for this? I’ve seen you using the ring( or whatever it’s called) 😁

    1. Lol, yay 😅

      Yeah, okra helps with oestrogen production so it’s good for women.

      Thanks so much. The cloth is an extra pillow case that looks fancy 😅 Yeah, I usually use a ring light and that helps a lot for quality 😊

      1. Aha cool! Good indeed.
        Yeah you use that cloth often. Looks good.
        Ring light is important these days.

        The other day I was thinking that it’s been forever since PG has made and share any video. Wish come true I guess.

        You dinner is so rich in Colors and nutrients

        1. Yeah, ring light really enhances the image. And I was thinking it’s been a while too and that I need to upload something soon lol.

          Thanks, I try to make sure to have a number of different nutrients.

  5. A healthy primary goal – well done you! 🥦 Looks delicious.

    1. Thanks so much! 😊

  6. Those look like such amazing and health conscious meal choices. Thank you for sharing

    1. Thanks so much. It’s delicious and healthy.

  7. We are what we eat! Good food in = better you

    1. I very much believe that. The better we eat the better we feel.

  8. I love okra/ Bhindi, but never had it steamed. Cooked in traditional way, it’s amazing. This sends a very healthy menu.

    1. Thanks so much. Yes, the traditionally cooked okra is quite popular but I like it steamed since it’s healthier. I don’t love the taste though lol.

      1. Oh so true that traditional way of cooking okra means too much oil.

        1. Yeah, I’m not a fan of that although it tastes delicious. So I try to look for different ways to eat them.

          1. I understand 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

  9. Looks excellent

    1. Thanks so much.

  10. All the dishes look wonderful, kimchi is probably the best, I wish I knew how to make it at home. Or better this way: I wish my husband made it for me at home lol. Food is definitely a language of love, let me correct myself: the language of love.

    1. Thanks so much. I would really recommend making it at home, the green onion one isn’t too difficult to make and needs minimal products. Here is the recipe if you (or hubby lol) want try it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-p_5xjsxESg&pp=ygUcbWFhbmdjaGkgc3ByaW5nIG9uaW9uIGtpbWNoaQ%3D%3D

      1. Thank you! I’ll give it a try

        1. No problem and hope it turns out good!

    In areas of the world where cannibalism is acceptable, rumors say vegetarians & vegans have sweet tasting bone marrow that prevents the cause of kuru or mad cow disease.

    1. Hmm, I’m going to pretend that’s not true just so I feel safer lol.

  12. Well… Look at you keeping that summer body with healthy lifestyle

    1. Thank you, hopefully it stays lol.

  13. It’s great to see your focus on maintaining a healthy diet, especially considering your health restrictions. Your commitment to an oil-free, gluten-free, and vegan/plant-based diet is inspiring.

    1. Thanks so much. I try my best to eat healthy the majority of the time and it helps with the health issues.

  14. 👍👍👌

  15. Wow!! That looks great, tasty and healthy. I keep meaning to make those cauliflower bites!! They look so good! Thanks Pooj!

    1. Thanks so much, definitely try them out they’re delicious!

  16. put on the lennon

      2. is it gupta or gudka? i mean now i m confused!

          1. wow i feel foolish. lmao so much for the gupta humour

  17. Hi Pooja! I usually don’t eat breakfast. normally just a bowl of cereal or a protein bar. I actually enjoy, eating cereal more for dinner rather than breakfast. I ate a southwest chicken bowl at Applebees for Lunch a couple days ago. So good! I need to make curry again 🙂

    1. I’m a big fan of eating breakfast foods at dinner too! I had a full British breakfast for dinner the other day and loved it. 🙂

  18. I love fried cauliflower bites and fried okra bites. Fried okra bites are delicious and don’t have the same texture as steamed okra. Your meals sound yummy, Pooja. ❤️

    1. The fried ones are really good, I have to admit. But since I’m trying to avoid fried foods I’ve been steaming everything lol. Thanks so much ❤️

      1. My pleasure, Pooja.

  19. The cauliflower bites look yummy! Chickpeas are a favourite of mine; they’re very versatile and good-tasting.

    1. Thanks, they were so delicious! I’m not the biggest fan of chickpeas but I like them in some dishes.

      1. Nice! My sweety makes a wonderful chickpea curry; versions with or without chicken. Mmmm

        1. Oh nice, yeah you can make a mean curry with chickpeas.

          1. Yes, delicious! I also make a chickpea salad with lentils, grape tomatoes, grilled peppers and feta, plus balsamic vinegar and olive oil, herbs and spices that’s really nice for lunch after long distance cycling.

            1. Oh wow, that sounds really delicious. I love fresh salads so much.

              1. It’s tasty, for sure. 😊

  20. trying to eat as healthy as possible is a good thing. I have eaten chickpea curry and rice before, which I am quite familiar with that dish

    1. Thanks so much. I absolutely agree, eating healthy is a good thing. Oh nice, yeah chickpea curry is really good.

  21. Your food choices look healthy!

    1. Thanks so much!

  22. That’s some variety of food. Good to see you eating well! 🙂

    1. Thanks so much, it was delicious! 🙂

  23. Lovee your food related posts. ☺️ I still need to try those cauliflower bites, chickpea curry, okra , anddd the added kimchi you had… wow so basically everything here lol! I feel like I’m missing out on some good food, thanks for sharing ❤️

    1. Thanks so much 😊Would definitely recommend it all, everything was so delicious and healthy ❤️

  24. A very healthy meal Pooja. All foods I love and eat,except I haven’t ate okras in a while. I do eat lots of chickpeas, and will mix them with sweet potatoes. I will also make an omelette with the flour or bake with it.

    1. Thanks so much. I don’t eat okra much either but I eat it every few weeks since it’s good for health. I love chickpea flour omelettes they’re really delicious. Especially if you add in some veggies.

      1. Yes, I do add veggies like mushrooms, cauliflower, cabbage etc.

  25. All of those dishes looked delish. Very bright and colorful. Presented very well. I am seriously thinking about changing the way I eat. I am not getting any younger. Turning 49 has made me think a lot about my overall health in many ways. I know what I need to cut back on, but it is so hard to do when you have a sweet tooth. I have lost a lot of weight around the midsection, I am happy about that, but I just want to get over this pneumonia so I can go back to work, this really sucks.
    Thank you for sharing those delish recipes with us. You are doing a great job, keep it up. Have a wonderful week.

    1. Thanks so much. Yes, a healthy diet is vital especially as we get older. I know it’s tough to let go of sugar. I’ve been having a hard time with that too but I’ve had to give it up and I’ve been eating dates instead. Hope you recover from the pneumonia soon and are able to get back to work. Ginger is really good for recovery, try drinking ginger and lemongrass tea. It’ll help a lot.
      My pleasure and have a wonderful week too.

      1. Thanks for that information. I didn’t know about that. I surely will try it.

        1. No problem. It helps a lot with bronchitis so I thought it would help with pneumonia too.

          1. You don’t know how much you have helped me. Thank you.

            1. Happy to have helped. I used to get bronchitis every year when I was a kid and I know how annoying and difficult the recovery process is. This helped me a lot and really improved my immunity too. I hope it does the same for you.

  26. My favourite posts from you. My mouth always waters. 😍 Yum!

    1. So glad you enjoy them 😊

  27. I dont know how to make it but we have something called ochro rice where I’m from. I strongly believe it’s one of those dishes that you can’t have from just any one, but the very few occasions I’ve had it, it was great. This is coming from someone who didn’t like ochro because it’s slimey.

    1. That’s very interesting. I don’t like the slimey texture either but I think some methods of cooking can work well. I’ll have to Google ochro rice and learn more about it.

  28. Love your food choices!

  29. Cauliflower bites is a new one for me and they look delicious

    1. Thank you, I would recommend trying them. They’re delicious and healthy.
