Get Kim Beach's vegan meal plan and recipes

Kim Beach has earned over half a million Facebook fans thanks to her successful weight-loss and fitness plans. But what does Kim actually eat in a day?

In July 2016, I started eating vegan. Many of my clients were requesting advice from a vegan perspective, so I thought I'd trial the lifestyle in an attempt to better understand it and create the best possible program for vegan followers.

However, I found that I loved eating this way and have managed to continue a vegan diet ever since. So, if you're out there and wondering how a vegan fitness expert fuels her body, here's my day on a plate.

How I start my Day

I always start my day with overnight oats which I prep the night before (sometimes I will do two or three at once to save time during the week) and when I wake up at 6am my oats are ready and waiting to be dressed up with some berries and chia seeds! I then hit the computer to check my emails and sneak in around half an hours work before my kids wake up. These oats give me long lasting energy so I can hit the gym at 9:30am and train hard.

Breakfast

After my morning workout which either includes a weight session, a HIIT session or hot yoga class I head straight home around 11am and have morning tea. What I eat normally varies, but my favourite would have to be my Mexican black bean dips with veggie sticks. It's loaded with good carbs, protein and fibre – the best post-workout meal! I will usually prep this dip on a Sunday so there is enough for a few days. After breakfast on a typical week day, I then work solidly to around 2:30pm before I go and get my kids from school.

Lunch

Lunch for me is around 1pm and my favourite meal is a baked sweet potato topped with hummus and black beans – so delicious. Again I will bake two sweet potatoes on a Sunday, let them cool then put them in an airtight container ready for meals during the week. I will then just cut the sweet potato down the middle and microwave it for a minute and top it with what I have on hand. So easy.

Afternoon tea

Afternoon tea is at around 4pm after I have picked my kids up from school. It is normally either a handful of tamari almonds and a green veggie juice or some guacamole celery boats - which are really tasty. I will always add my good fats to this meal to avoid cravings and to also make me feel good and satisfied.

Dinner

For dinner I love a good stir fry! My favourite is a lentil stir fry cooked up with a little water, garlic and onion then adding in all my vegetables with a splash of tamari and a drizzle of pure maple syrup. I like to have dinner nice and early around 6pm and then I have a peppermint tea to relax before bed.

Dessert

I personally don't normally crave dessert - but my kids do! So, when they want ice cream, I always whip up my chocolate "gelato" - a vegan sugar-free ice cream - and it goes down a treat!
