Vegan? So what do you eat? xx Photogallery xx

So what do you eat? We do not get the question that often anymore, but still, some people have a hard time grasping what vegans eat. So what’s left after you take away the animal parts in a traditional dish, nothing right? Unfortunately, some people still seem to think that.
Could not be further from the truth of course! It is about making new combinations and discovering new products. And several years after going vegan, we are still on a fascinating journey of discovery! In our minds, veganism is not about leaving things out, because we simply don’t regard animal products as ‘edible things’ anymore.

In this post, I let the photos speak for themselves. It is a collection of photos of our homemade meals that I posted on Instagram (I will make a seperate blogpost with desserts soon). Most of the dishes are inspiration of the moment. Some are based on recipes from vegan cookbooks.
We never considered ourselves as ‘foodies’, and I was actually quite surprised that a friend did refer to us as foodies the other day! 😀 Seems that going vegan has just ignited our love for food 😉
These are not photos of restaurant meals (there are plenty of restaurant reviews on my blog), but day to day (and a couple of more fancy) culinary creations in our own kitchen 😉
I thought this collage would consist of about 30 photos or so, but apparently in the year and a half that I’ve been active on IG, I posted nearly 100 photos of home made meals. So yes, we have turned into foodies 😉

So whoever still thinks vegans eat salad every day, or even grass, I hope this photo gallery opens your eyes and gives some inspiration. Eat this! 😉

    Oh, you’ve made me so hungry with all those pictures! I definitely became more of a ‘foodie’ and far more passionate about food and cooking when I became vegan.

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      Indeed, passion about food, that’s it! Even all those years when we were vegetarian, we hardly had an urge or felt the need to discover new paths. Going vegan has made us discover so much, and want to discover more 🙂

  2. Can I reblog this or would you prefer a link?

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      If reblogging is sharing a part of the blog (some text and some photos – and then there’s a link to the full blogpost here, that’s fine! Not if it is copy past of the blogpost in its entirety.
      Thanks that you like the post and for considering to reblog, appreciated 🙂

      1. The reblog has a button at the top that I don’t see (I keep it off on my blogs) but linking is fine. No worries.

  3. What amazing pictures and even more amazing dishes! My husband was just asked the other day where we go to get vegan pasta. He had to really control himself to not go on a rant about how pasta is usually naturally vegan. It’s just the cheese and the meats that change that. We can go anywhere and get vegan pasta.
    I think what some people don’t realize is there is no “vegan ingredient” that needs to be added to a dish to make it vegan. It’s just removing the animals. Simple.

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      Thanks Rachel. So many foods are vegan, without people realising it!

  4. I just have to say, Yum, yum, yummy! Oh yes, nice pond, lovely cat. Thanks for making me hungry as hell.

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      Appreciate the feedback Peter 🙂 Mabelle is flattered too 😉 hope you had a nice dinner meanwhile!

  5. ktkickass says:

    AMAZING POST!!! Must have taken you awhile to compile these awesome photos! Thanks for doing that!! xoxo

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      lol, yes, I thought I was going to make a quick blogpost, with a couple of existing photos … turned out to be a bit more than I anticipated 😉

  6. Vegan ! what else ?

    Just OVERWHELMING – and the “garden”…

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      Thanks for stopping by Elisabeth, and your nice words 🙂

  8. Unbelievable. All look fabulous. I want to try each one (now).

    Stomach grumbling now

      Thanks Heidi. Just a heads up, do you know that your blog URL doesn’t show in your gravatar?

      1. Heidi Coon says:

        Thank you! I actually wasn’t aware of that

    Amazing pictures, delicious vegan dishes !
    Attractive inspiration for at least the whole year.
    Thank you for sharing your experiences.

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      thanks for dropping by and the feedback! Glad you enjoyed it 🙂

  11. rumpydog says:

    Now I am hungry. And I’m glad you found me so I could find you back. One of my New Years resolutions is to cook more and eat least processed food. Even though it’s vegan, it’s still processed. Thanks!

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      thanks for following back! Indeed, just because it’s vegan doesn’t neceassrily mean it’s healthy, but it’s always yummie and good for the animals though 😉

  12. absolutely love this ! check out my post for the fluffiest vegan pancakes 🙂

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      thanks for stopping by, just checked your blog, love it, greets from belgium 🙂

  13. Such wonderful food on here! I got a new passion for food as soon as I became vegan (and it’s help keeping my omni husband satisfied at home). These recipes are great, thank you for sharing them with us! I will definitely be using them 💛

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      thanks, I hope they can be inspirational!

  14. glkal says:

    WOW … this has to be the best page I have found so far. I’m just turning Vegan, mostly for health reasons, but also because I learned allot recently about the treatment of the animals… poor buggers. – this is the first page I’ve found that seems to be loaded with a full diet of menu ideas. so many sauces are good for two or three ideas , usually the same as each other too. so thank you, I can tell this is going to be a very useful blog to com back to. Thanks again, must have taken ages to put together.

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      Thanks for your kind words glkal. Good look on your vegan journey. So much to discover! 🙂
      Do you also have a blog? the link doesn’t show in your gravatar.

  15. wherethewildlizzieblooms says:

    All that food looks so amazing! I need to start sending my friends the link to this article when they say “you’re VEGAN?!! So what you just eat lettuce?”

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      That’s the idea! and that’s what I’m doing from now on when I see a comment on social media that vegans eat grass 😉
      PS: just a heads up: your blog link (if you have one) doesn’t show in your gravatar (so I couldn’t find your blog to check it out 😉

  16. angelamilne says:

    I love your pictures your food looks amazing! Looks like you have worked hard on your blog well done, I’m pretty new to blogging but have lot elf vegan recipes too 😊 Happy blogging x

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      thanks for your feedback Angelamilne. Happy blogging!

  17. 13hales says:

    This is a really great post because it gives me ideas of meal possibilities! I’m a vegetarian. I also have many food allergies. I also focus my diet on being plant based (because it’s possible to eat unhealthy even if a person is vegetarian.) Thank you!

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      Thanks for stopping by chrissy and good luck on your vegan journey!

      1. Chrissy says:

        You’re welcome and thank you! 😀

  18. Wow what a great way to showcase your homemade meals! You guys really have a wonderful talent. I cannot wait until my catalog of self made dishes resemble the sheer bulk of yours! I don’t consider myself much of a ‘foodie’ either, but its like you said in your post, going vegan really does light the flame when it comes to being passionate about food!

    I think its so important for people to understand that vegans eat tons of amazing dishes. Thanks for posting this!

    -Thomas

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      Thanks for your comment Thomas. Yes, being a foodie just came along the way, with discovering the variety and diversity in vegan cooking. So much to discover! 🙂

  19. Oh wow!! All that food looks incredible! 🙂 Instagram is such a great way to show the word that vegans don’t just eat lentils and lettuce! 😀 xxx

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      Thanks Chrissy. Yes, social media (and instagram in particular) is a great platform to show people how delicious vegan food can be!

  20. Elaine says:

    Yummy. Way better cooking than I do. But I like to keep it simple. Never like spices or complicated things. I’d be happy with mangos, pineapple, rice, beans, quinoa, and non-dairy yogurt/ice cream.

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      Thanks Elaine! We like to think we keep it simple too 😉 No so many ‘fancy’ dishes in here, although occasionally with a bit more work and ingredients.

  21. Dave C says:

    Wow! This site is great, I have been hesitant to travel because of my dietary focus and now I have so many ideas, Thanks!!!

    1. trudi_bruges says:

      Thanks for dropping by Dave, nice to know our blog efforts are appreciated and inspiring 🙂
