To make the avocado toast and egg recipe, toast a slice of 100 percent whole-grain bread, spread 1/5 avocado pulp on the toast, and add a soft-boiled or poached egg on top, recommends WebMD. Add salt and pepper to taste.

For a satisfying lunch, sprinkle a bit of water over 8 ounces of tempeh, microwave for five minutes, drain water, and use a fork to separate the tempeh. Combine 3/8 cup vegan mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon tamari and 1 tablespoon curry powder in another bowl, and add in the tempeh, 1/4 cup chopped cashews, 2 stalks celery and 2 tablespoon golden raisins, instructs WebMD. Serve in pita halves with watercress.

One-pot recipes with lots of vegetables are ideal for dinner, states WebMD. Prepare a large batch, and freeze for a convenient evening meal. For snacks between meals, serve apple and peanut butter, or prepare cottage cheese with sliced tomatoes, black pepper and basil.
