First thing in the morning, drink one quart of water with some fresh lemon juice in it. This gets you started off right!

Today’s breakfast is sweet potato oatmeal! It may sound strange, but I promise it’s delicious.

Breakfast ingredients:
1 cup oats
1 sweet potato
1 cup water (adjust to suit your desired consistency)
1/2 cup almond milk
cinnamon and nutmeg to taste
raisins to taste (optional)
pinch of Himalayan salt
vanilla bean powder to taste
coconut sugar (optional)

Method:
Shred the sweet potato.
Put all of the ingredients except the vanilla bean powder and coconut sugar into a pot. Cover and cook for 10 to 15 minutes.
Stir in the vanilla bean powder. Optionally, sprinkle with coconut sugar to taste. Enjoy!

Tip:
If you prefer your sweet potato to maintain some texture, add a little bit of it at the beginning and the rest after a few minutes of cooking.

Lunch will be a fantastic, filling sandwich! If you’ve ever missed tuna sandwiches since going vegan, you’re in luck with this recipe.

Lunch ingredients:
2 cups garbanzo beans
1/4 red onion
2 celery stalks
avocado
sea salt and pepper to taste
two slices of bread

Method:
Dice the red onion and celery.
Put all of the ingredients into a food processor. Pulse until it’s your preferred texture!
Toast the bread and top generously with the garbanzo bean mixture. Form into a sandwich and cut in half.

Tip:
You can add your favorite sandwich extras like lettuce, tomato slices, jalapenos, and much more! Be creative and make this sandwich your own.

For dinner, you’ll love this hearty lentil soup! It’s the perfect meal for a chilly day when you just want to snuggle up with a warm meal under a blanket.

Dinner ingredients:
2 carrots
1 large potato
1 celery stalk
small handful of cilantro
2 green onions
sea salt and pepper to taste
spices to taste
4 cups cooked lentils
avocado

Method:
Dice the carrots, potato, and celery. Mince the cilantro. Cut the green onions into thin slices.
Put the carrots, potato, celery, and green onions into a pan along with sea salt, pepper, and spices of your choice to taste. Saute, using water instead of oil, until the vegetables are tender.
Add the cooked lentils and enough water to make a soup of your preferred consistency. Cook until hot, then stir in the cilantro.
Serve topped with avocado.

When it’s cold, it’s so easy to fall into the trap of wanting to eat unhealthy, processed foods. You probably spent years unintentionally training your body to think it had to eat foods like this in chilly weather. With satiating, warming foods like these, you can teach your body to crave healthful foods instead!

If I can do it, so can you. I believe in you! If you want more great recipes like these, check out my apps. They’re packed full of amazing recipes that will inspire and motivate you to stay on this path and live this amazing lifestyle.
