Two of my most popular posts are my sample vegan meal plan and my Daniel-Craig-inspired high-fat, high-protein vegan meal plan, so I’m taking it that people like meal plans, eh? I’ve grappled with whether I want to produce meal plans because they can very easily be used as “diet plans.” However, that is not my intention and I would hate to forgo providing something that may be useful to people who need some guidance figuring out how and/or what to eat that is vegan and/or gluten-free (since my diet these days is vegan and predominantly gluten-free). So, I’ve put together the following sample meal plan and offered some suggestions for additional snacks. Remember – this is just an outline meant to be used to get your own thoughts flowing — I don’t think 1800-ish calories is “good” or “bad” – it’s all relative and dependent on a myriad of factors. Please remember that I am not a doctor or dietitian! I’m just some cranky ass behind a computer screen who, as my mom put it via text yesterday, writes in a “painfully honest” way
Other things to think about:
- how do you feel after eating certain foods? Do you feel energized? Bloated and gassy? Start listening!
- what do you really want to eat?
- are you eating slowly and savoring your food?
- are you eating until you are satisfied instead of until you are full?
Enjoy! Please leave any suggestions, questions, etc. in the comments.
