I agree with both of you Wishin and Tina, I usually don't post on this thread because I don't eat really 'healthy' things all the time. I eat quite a lot of fried food, chips, biscuits etc.Although I also eat healthy things, vegetables, fruit, nuts etc, I don't post what I eat every day as I think the 'unhealthy' foods look out of place with everyone else's posts.
For similar reasons I don't post on the 'Lets get fit and healthy' thread either as I don't do any conventional form of exercise. Although I'm always on the go from I get up at 6am until I go to bed at night.
Oh dear, now I've said all this I feel like a slob! :(

Yesterday i ate:

Bowl of muesli with rice milk and a nectarine
Leftover thai curry with rice noodles (tofu, green bean and mushroom)
Banana
Egyptian Kocheri (recipe from Linda Mazlik Taste of Middle East)
I was really pleased with this because I was out at a governor's
meeting and it was the first time my husband had cooked tea since
I became vegan about 6 weeks ago. It was really tasty and just made with
storecupboard cheap and healthy ingredients!!

I must butt in to say that that is sooo good on vanilla Soy Delicious. :D


That sounds amazing!

Wishin: I'm glad you brought that up. I've been trying to eat more "normally" lately and use this thread to try to get a sense of what "normal" vegans eat, quantity-wise. It does seem like a lot of people don't eat that much. I know that people have different food/energy requirements, like Tina said, but some people do tend to seem to get embarassed about eating less healthy stuff (including myself) and some people don't eat that much. I'm glad you brought it up. I think it can make us all more aware. :)

Hehe, Sandra. One day I'll get around to posting what I eat (if I can remember as I snack a lot!)...that'll make you feel better if I'm on one of my eat lots days! I think we all have healthy and not so healthy days. I know I do but I don't care because I eat what I like when I like :)

No problem guys!

Veggiegirl - I definately know what you mean/show you feel. A lot of people come here looking to see what vegans eat and how much they should eat. I think this thread is a poor representation and because everyone is looking to each other I think that is partly why as a group everyone's intake is decreasing. There are a lot of us here who already have a really distorted view of what 'normal' is and struggle to figure it out. Its tough and while there is no definite answer I think we could all benefit from striving a little harder to find a more balanced intake and to stray away from all the guilt - or attempt to anyways! :)

Heres an example from the Proud to Eat Healthy Thread

DancingWillow:


Breakfast:
flax granola cereal with hazelnut milk and cinnamon
1 organic pear

Lunch:
big bowl of organic lentil soup (lentils, yellow onion, peas, carrots, broccoli, olive oil, sea salt, oregano, basil, and other spices)
2 sunflower seed butter-chocolate chip cookies

Snack:
1 organic kiwi
1 organic grapefruit with turbinado sugar sprinkled on top
1-2 tbsp sunflower seed butter
a little bit of chocolate chips

Dinner:
Big salad with all organic veggies (red cabbage, yellow squash, scallion, alfalfa sprouts, red chard, spinach, tomato) topped with about 1/4 cup of nutritional yeast, tamari almonds, and Annie's papaya-poppy seed dressing
1 slice of organic whole grain bread
handful of chocolate chips


Lots of good healthy food - but also doesn't deny sweets - and this is pretty standard across all of her entries on the proud to eat healthy thread! and this is just one example - there are also many many many variations and other menus that constitute as a healthy diet

Thanks for your post Wishin. However, I have to say that I stopped looking at, and posting in that "Proud to Eat Healthy" thread a long time ago. The reason being, is that I felt like a bad eater when I read what others were eating. There's no way I could eat 2000 calories a day without putting on weight. I guess I'm just confirming the point that a few of you have made already - that everyone eats what is right for them.

Yesterday:

2 cups of coffee with Silk creamer.

2 pieces of Wheat & Soy Toast with Earthbalance and Raspberry & Champagne Jam.

2 Wildberry Buckwheat Waffles with Raspberry & Champagne Jam.

1 large Soft Pretzel.

9 Pieces of Veggie Sushi.

30g of Onion Pakoda chips (bought them in the Indian section at the grocery store).

30g Organic Corn Chips with Cherry Salsa.

Cup of Organic Earl Grey tea with Soy Milk.

4 Oatmeal Cookies.

Personally I sometimes put a :o by a food because as a Vegan I feel I am very well educated about nutrition, but yet I still eat a lot of worhtless crap that I KNOW I could/should live without! :p .

yoggy, that yogurt is so good!

sandra, dont ever feel bad to post what you ate. i eat alot of crap too. chips, crisps, slushees, chocolate, etc. lol. if anything it just shows non vegans the kindof varying diet we CAN have and that we really dont just sit around eating tofu and leafy greens!! isnt that the kindof image we want to project anyways? i always feel like an outsider in this thread because i love treats and everybodys always eating so healthily and im just like ugh boring where are the treats and snacks and yummy stuff LOL. (no offence to anyone, im mainly just being silly)

roxy i agree with you. i need to eat really light in order to lose any weight, and im only losing weight for health reasons, but like i said, we all need different amounts. so lets eat what we eat and get on with it. post it, treats and all! lets see all the yummy gooey veganness that we all devour. i dont want to just hear about the greens and salads and fruits. i want to know what kinds of vegan goodies are out there LOL.

and about the fit and healthy thread, i dont exercise alot lately but i still post in there. except im posting how i feel about things, you know, about my health and trying to get fit and healthy. thats pretty much the main point about it all. get support when you need it and boast when you dont haha.

No offense taken Wishin986. I agree everyone's "normal" is different when it comes to eating. I mean, we all aren't the same physically and require different amounts of food to feel healthy. I'm only 5'1" on a good day and I find that being short means I don't eat as much to keep my weight where I want it. Anways, here's my day so far:

Breakfast: Smoothie with strawberries, blackberries, banana, and OJ
Snack: Large apple
Lunch: Silk yogart, cauliflower, celery, and pinapple chuncks
Snack: PB&J with some chips and salsa
Dinner: ??? probably some angel hair pasta with sauted veggies
