Who said eating vegan was boring?
Or how about, just not filling enough?
I used to think this. Along with a lot of other classic stereotypical thoughts.
Yes, vegetables aren’t as filling as eating a chicken breast or 6oz sirloin. But you can eat a lot more! And not feel weighed down, tired and groggy.
This meal was made from leftovers. It was easy and fast to put together.
This meal was filling but just in case this doesn’t keep you full until dinner…this meal was only 377 calories which equates to around 19% of my daily caloric intake.
Leaving plenty of room for snacks or a fourth meal for the day.
I will be honest. It only has 8g of protein. Which to a lot of people would make a great argument.
I recently learned that you don’t need all that protein they tell us about. Your daily protein needs is only 10% of your daily caloric intake. Professional athletes or people building muscle can increase this to 15-25%. Anything more has not been proven in studies to help or add any sufficient value.
All in all, this lunch was a win! 🤤
