One Meal a Day Vegan: As you may or may not know, I have practiced intermittent fasting for the past few years. I usually fast for 18 hours and then for about 6 hours. Sometimes I will eat something outside that window if I am really hungry: the key is to listen to my body to see what feels good. So why are you adding OMAD (one meal per day) over a gluten-free and keto-free type of vegetarian diet? Well, why not?
I am following some people on Instagram who have managed to eat one meal a day and that has always impressed me. I have heard that people have had some success recalculating (my goal is to lose some fat and gain muscle) while eating only one meal a day. So, I thought about giving it a spin.
It was a lot of fun planning what to do, and I was really excited to get started. Because my stomach has been a little sensitive to nuts recently, all this food is a nut and peanut-free. It is also soy-free. So for those of you wondering if you could follow a vegan keto diet without soy or nuts, you can definitely do it! While my day here is not coconut free, most foods are. I only used coconut milk in my coffee.
And you? Have you ever had one meal a day? How was your experience? I’d like to hear it in the comments!
Coffee and supplements

So, I had coffee in the morning with a little coconut milk. I mainly use the sugar-free type you find in the dairy section. I also added a little coconut milk powder to a little extra fat.
I also took external ketones to help me along the coast. I don’t usually take keto supplements, and I don’t think it’s necessary for success while on a keto diet, but I wanted to see how it might help here. I took berry lemon juice ketones from Preferred Keto all day and found that they gave me enough energy and kept me up long enough to avoid fasting without being too hungry, which is really cool. I don’t eat him regularly, but I really appreciate his presence at times like this!
Main event: one serving per day (low carb vegetarian style)
Have you ever had a strange desire for random vegetables? I really wanted to eat beet macros, and I don’t know why, but I’ve found that a raw Thai dish would be a good way to sneak in. The ingredients are as follows:
- 100 g zucchini noodles
- 50 g cucumber lattice
- 25 grams of beet noodles
- Sauce: 2 tablespoons of sunflower seed butter, 1-2 teaspoons of low sodium tamari, 2 tablespoons of water, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, garlic powder. Mix with noodles and noodles. This tastes better with peanut butter, but we do our best.
- 2 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds
- Chopped green onions for garnish
- 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds to decorate
This is a recipe from my cookbook (using the recipe for baking seeds, also in my cookbook). Lately, I’ve been craving because many of you post photos of this particular recipe on Instagram. Cut the bread a little thinner to get three slices of bread. I’ve also mixed about 2 tablespoons of sauce in the avocado puree, which I highly recommend.
Also, I don’t know the reason, but I’m glad it’s pretty clear which piece of bread was the final piece.
More vegetables with hemp sauce
2 cups (200 g) of broccoli flowers
1 cup (100 grams) of cauliflower flowers
Hemp sauce: 1/4 cup (40 g) of hemp seeds, 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, 1/2 cup of water, 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast, a pinch of garlic powder, and a pinch of sweet pepper. Salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything together.
I roasted vegetables in the deep fryer at 350 ° F (177 ° C) for about 10 minutes and then covered them with the sauce.
2 squares (20 g) Lindt 90% chocolate!
Calories are a little slower than I used to be, but I’m not really hungry for anything else. Overall, it took over 90 minutes to eat it all. I’m not sure I want to do this every day, but I really enjoyed being able to eat a lot at once!
