Lauren and I met on Twitter and I loved all her posts about working out. That’s why I asked her if she would like to write a guest post for my blog and I was lucky because she immediately said yes! Hope you will enjoy it.
It’s Lauren here from laurenhollie.com! I’m here to share with you a ‘What I Eat in a Day’: Plant Based edition. I want to start off by saying that my diet is not yet 100% plant based and I have been making swaps since September last year. It’s a journey and a work in progress! Whatever your reasons are for wanting to eat more of a plant based diet, simply reducing the amount of animal based food you have in your diet will make a difference.
This recipe was inspired by @stephelswood but I’ve changed it a bit to make it my own. They make the fluffiest, tastiest pancakes every time, and you can top them with whatever you like!
My other go-to is a breakfast bowl, which usually consists of soya yoghurt mixed with Free Soul protein powder, granola, berries and drizzle of Choc Shot Plant Based Sauce. Click here for the Free Soul Website (this is an affiliate link, you can use my code FSLaurenhollie for 15% off).
Cajun Breaded Tofu with Brown Rice and Vegan Mayo
This recipe is also from Steph (I’ve linked her eBook at the end of this post) but I decided to coat the tofu in breadcrumbs so it felt more like a chicken goujon haha! They were delicious and I really need to make them again. A little messy, but worth it! And you don’t have to use brown rice, you can use any.
Stuffed Butternut Squash
Roasted Butternut Squash stuffed with sweetcorn, quinoa, spinach, butter beans, pinto beans. Again, you can change the fillings to be whatever you fancy!
Carrot Sticks and Hummus
This is a classic and I love it even more now I’ve started making my own hummus (it’s super easy).
Cocoa and Date Protein Balls
These are also a fairly recent discovery, and you just put them in the fridge to set after mixing all the ingredients together so you can’t really go wrong! There’s loads of different versions online.
This is one of my favourite snacks because it’s quite light (so you can eat more hehe) and again there’s loads of choices!

I want to thank Lauren for writing this guest post. I think her food looks amazing and I’m getting real cravings now, haha! Hope you enjoyed it too.
