First Meal: This morning I cooked organic Steel Cut Oats in water with an organic Pear, some organic Raisins and Pumpkin Spice.   Second Meal: It rained all day yesterday.

What Vegans Eat – Day 1495

First Meal: If you know me, you know I am prefer to sleep in, taking my time in the morning before I get into high working gear. Not today. Today I got up at 7am. There was a lot to do. I had a small, comforting breakfast to keep me going for a little while…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1494

This morning I started the day with Lemon Water. The water is distilled from our tap, using the Aquanui distiller. I put some in a jar with a few pieces of lemon. I love drinking water this way.   First Meal: Breakfast was easy – there were three Fruity Corn Waffles remaining. I heated two,…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1493

First Meal: Life in the Big City with a car and no owned parking spot means playing the “Alternate Side Parking” game. My car was parked on a Thursday side, where street cleaning occurs from 11;30am-1pm. The street cleaning is a joke, the cleaning truck rushes through in a blink. But it does get some…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1492

First Meal: Gary is still in San Jose and will be there for a few more weeks. It’s not easy being separated. I pretended he was here an made some frothy, organic Soy Milk like he always does, to put on my Maté tea.   Then I made Fruity Corn Waffles. Gary, I know you…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1491

First Meal: It’s the day of my annual physical. I go for a number of reasons. One is to get blood drawn for a CA125 test, the marker for ovarian cancer. It’s been over twelve years since I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Of course I am thrilled to have that behind me. The one…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1489

First Meal: History repeats itself. At least yesterday and today did. I had plans to go to some open houses to look at Manhattan apartments. The window was tight, noon to 1:30pm. Still on California time, I stayed up late. I forgot that the clocks were moving ahead today. I woke up and it was…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1488

What Vegans Eat – Day 1487

Tea: It’s Mother’s Day, the day I visit my mom. I have not seen her in over three weeks since I have been in California. I made myself a new tea my sister-n-law gave me, a blend of Maté, Cinnamon and Peppermint. I never would have thought to mix these but I like it. I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1486

First Meal: On paper, red eye flight seem so efficient. You spend the day wherever you are, get on the plane to sleep and arrive at your destination in the morning. The only problem is you feel awful the day you land, all day long. When I arrived home, I unpacked, went through the mail…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1485

Tea: We got up a little earlier than usual. Gary and I were meeting Raya, a dear friend and former student of Gary’s, at Manresa Bread in Campbell. There wasn’t anything there that interested us to eat but the teas were tempting. Gary had an herbal tea with Carrots in it! I went with a…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1483

First Meal: After our Taste of Millennium feast last night I thought I would never need to eat again! But the morning came, things moved along as they do and I was hungry anew. I had moved one of the Green Juices I froze to the refrigerator to defrost. We had organic Bananas, organic Green…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1482

What Vegans Eat – Day 1481

First Meal: The day has arrived, Gary’s dad’s funeral. We have been preparing for this for a while. Gary had been working on his eulogy for days, and I have prepared to sing Schubert’s Ave Maria. I knew we wouldn’t eat until 1pm so I suggested we have Oatmeal before heading to the mortuary. It…
