While Amelia is back in the States, I thought I’d share What I Eat In A Day as a Single Vegan. These are some of my favorite, super simple recipes that make enough leftovers for lunch the following day. Here are the recipes:
- Raw Rolled Oats Breakfast
- Easy Garden Salad
- Pasta w/ Marinara & Veggies – your favorite whole grain pasta, one jar of your favorite fat-free marinara sauce, one small chopped onion, one tablespoon minced garlic, one cup each chopped broccoli and cauliflower. Plus, oregano, fennel seeds, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to taste. Sauté the veggies first, then add all the other ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Mexican Stir Fry
Back by popular demand, I added a little Daisy Cam footage. I adopted Daisy almost 8 years ago from a shelter in Denver, CO. She’s a super sweet girl, unless you’re an invader in her territory.
Amelia also shared her delicious dinner at Watercourse Foods in Denver, CO. We used to live just a few blocks from Watercourse when we lived in Uptown before we moved to Ecuador. It’s one of the few 100% vegan restaurants in Denver and it’s freaking amazing! They have lots of vegan comfort food. It was our Denver version of Fratello.

Hola veggie lovers.
I’m JP with Vegans Abroad.
Amelia is currently still back
in the States in Denver for her job.
If you’re new to our channel,
we post videos every Tuesday, Thursday
and Saturday at 2PM Eastern Time
and we hang out
for about an hour afterward
to respond to your comments and
answer any questions you might have
so come join us during that time.
If you’re NOT new to our channel, we
really appreciate that you are
watching our videos and providing such
We really appreciate that.
While Amelia was gone
I decided to record a
Single Vegan What I Eat In A Day video
to show you all what
a single vegan can eat.
So let’s go ahead and get started.
For breakfast almost everyday we eat
Raw Rolled Oats.
We put some ground flax that we grind up,
usually chia, too, but
we were out of chia,
with some oats and then we add in some
amla powder, it’s supposed to help with my
cholesterol, and a little maca powder.
And we use almond milk here that’s
fortified with calcium and Vitamin D
because with my back I want to make sure
that I keep a good calcium level.
And then we top it all with fruit.
You can use whatever fruit you like.
Frozen fruit is just fine, too.
I put bananas and papaya on this
with some walnuts.
I just love that for breakfast.
Let’s take a little break for a Daisy Cam.
We get a lot of requests from people
to see more of Miss Daisy.
And she is adorable, isn’t she? Oh my
God she’s a sweetheart.
For lunch almost everyday, I eat a salad,
a big salad.
I normally top it with
all kinds of veggies,
but I didn’t have any prepared so I just
put some sliced onion, tomato and
sunflower seeds, oregano,
some balsamic vinegar on it.
I had made some pasta with a pasta sauce
the night before.
I decided to eat that,
which is really simple.
It’s just tomato sauce and some
chopped up veggies:
broccoli and cauliflower
and onion and garlic.
I just opened up a jar of tomato sauce
and poured it in.
Amelia wanted to share her dinner with us
that she had at Watercourse
so let’s jump over to Denver and see
what Amelia is up to.
>> Amelia: Hi veggie lovers!
I’m Amelia with Vegans Abroad.
I’m still here in Denver, CO and I thought
I would share
my meal with you guys last night.
I decided to go to Watercourse Foods,
which is a 100% vegan restaurant
It’s in what I consider downtown Denver,
but the neighborhood
is actually called Uptown.
Anyway, I highly recommend
you all check it out
if you’re ever here in Denver because
it is the first 100% vegan restaurant
and it definitely delivers. They have
a great selection of
comfort food and definitely more
on the gourmet side I’d say.
I decided to start my meal with the
Baked Brie appetizer
and it was AMAZING!
It was super light and decadent.
The brie filling itself is made with tofu,
cashew and a little nutritional yeast
that they use as a binder.
At least that’s what the server said.
It is wrapped in a very light and flaky
pastry puff. Quite tasty.
For my main course, I decided to have the
Sage Sweet Potato Gnocchi.
And wow! It was so incredibly flavorful.
The gnocchi dish comes with a
sweet potato puree,
roasted butternut squash and mushrooms,
a sage oil, fried sage leaves, and
it is topped with a walnut parmesan.
Yes please! If you get that, you will
not be disappointed.
It is pretty filling. I had
a little bit leftover
so I had that as a snack today.
That’s all I have from Denver right now.
I will see you all soon, but I am going to
go ahead and pass it back to JP.
Bye veggie lovers!
>> JP: For dinner, I made a
Mexican Stir Fry
with onion, garlic, some red
and green peppers, a jalapeño.
And then I just sauteed all that,
or steam fried it,
in veggie broth on the stove until
it was nice and tender
all the veggies were nice and tender.
Then I added in some black beans,
some black pepper, some salt, cumin.
Love cumin! It’s one of
my favorite spices.
And then some chili powder.
And then just stirred all that up and let
it heat through.
Wow that looks amazing!
So delicious. And very simple too.
You can buy your veggies already
pre-chopped to save time, as well.
And I just threw some cilantro in
at the end there.
I had already made some brown rice,
fresh out of our pressure cooker.
Put the Mexican Stir Fry over the
and then I topped it with some salsa.
As you can see, it is pretty simple
to eat as a single vegan.
All of those made leftovers so I had
leftovers for lunch
and then that Mexican Stir Fry made enough
that I had leftovers for lunch the next day.
So it’s a really good use of time.
I know some people don’t like leftovers.
Those people would be crazy.
Because we eat leftovers all the time.
Well I hope you enjoyed our Single Vegan
What We Eat In A Day video.
