Other things you can do is this. Stuck up on nuts and seeds, they are very nutritious and make everything yummy.

You can go on YouTube and search how to make any food you like vegan, most recipes are super simple and easy to make like pancakes and eggy tofu for breakfast. Oatmeal is also great in the morning. Combine your rice with lentils and quinoa.
