I love to read posts about what people eat in a day, especially on more specialized diets (like vegan, keto, gluten free, etc.). Because of this, I’m never really surprised when I receive requests to make another “What I Eat in a Day” post. It seems I’m not the only one who enjoys spying on other people’s meals. 😉

If you follow me on instagram at all, you’ll notice that I’ve been eating a low-FODMAP diet the past few days to try and eliminate some lingering digestive issues. You’ll also note that this isn’t really a keto post, but is still a low carb vegan day of eating. Because of the chickpea scramble, the carbs are a little higher than they would have been otherwise.

What I Eat in a Day: Low Carb, Low-FODMAP Vegan Diet | Meat Free Keto - It's always fun to see how people eat, so here's what I ate on a low carb, low-FODMAP, gluten free vegan diet.


I’m still fasting until afternoon, so like always, my breakfast was black coffee, and lots of it. I really need to cut down on caffeine, though, so I am going to have to switch to decaf, or give it up entirely… at least for a while.


Because it was a Sunday, I had the luxury of being able to make myself a nice, big meal. This consisted of green cabbage sauteed in olive oil with some kalamata olives, a nice bed of arugula topped with a chickpea scramble (recipe here), and some experimental hempseed sausage patties (recipe will be up eventually). I also added some broccoli sprouts on top just to maximize the nutritional benefits.

This is a ton of food, and it should be noted that I ate it over the course of about an hour and a half, while getting a little work done. It’s also worth noting that “lunch” started around 2pm.

  • Calories: 921.6
  • Net Carbs: 25.7g
  • Protein: 27.5g
  • Fat: 72.1g


Dinner was a little less ambitious than lunch was, and I basically just ate 100g of cut up carrots (yes, I weighed them) with 4 tbsp of unsweetened peanut butter and 2 servings of my favorite crispbread. I also downed a protein shake with a half scoop of Vega Sport Chocolate protein powder, and a half tsp of spirulina.

  • Calories: 819.3
  • Net Carbs: 19.8g
  • Protein: 44g
  • Fat: 60.0g


This day was definitely a bit higher in carbs than usual. The chickpea scramble alone provided 13.2g of net carbs. Carrots are also a little on the carbier side. Honestly though, they’re both delicious and were well worth the splurge.

  1. I know this post was a while ago, but have you tried Dandy Tea as a coffee replacement? I still drink a cup of coffee in the morning, but have replaced any additional cups (usually a second in the morning and on a semi-regular basis a cup in the afternoon) with Dandy tea. It’s a dandelion chicory root blend. While it’s not coffee, it has a nice full flavor and is warm and comfy.

    Also want to say thanks for your blog! It’s a great resource for this longtime vegetarian but Keto newbie!

      Hi Zara, thanks for the kind words! I haven’t tried Dandy Tea, but I’ve actually been looking for a good coffee replacement again recently. I’ll have to check it out. The way you describe it sounds great – warm and comfy is totally what I’m looking for 😀
