What I Eat in a Day: Plant-based Edition

In an age where several food options are available with a click of an UberEats delivery button, choosing what to eat can be quite unmotivating, costly, and, at times, difficult. For this reason, I aim to help you reinvent each meal in a manner that is amusing, creative, and healthy by providing you with a “What I Eat in a Day: Plant-based Edition.” I listed potential plant-based meals for you and your family to cook at home for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In addition, I provided an assortment of snacks that are quick, affordable, customizable depending on your preference and style, and most importantly, plant-based!
