What Vegans Eat – Day 1755

First Meal: Our friend Bilal is in town and he wanted to meet. Plus he had a craving for Knishes. I suggested we meet at Kinsh Nosh, a few blocks from where we live. It’s slushy outside, not the best to go out but we bundled up. We got the goods, Potato, Kasha, Mushroom and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1754

First Meal: We’re up early to meet my dear friend Josée’s son and his children. They are French and the children are studying here in the United States, one at Brown and the other at Tufts. I suggested Le Pain Quotidien by Central Park. I had the Smoothie Bowl with Coconut Yogurt. It’s a Yummy…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1753

First Meal: Twas the day after Thanksgiving and what a delight to sit down to a ready-made feast. Gary set out the good china, part of a grand collection of treasures left to Gary from his mom.

What Vegans Eat – Day 1752

First Meal: It’s Thanksgiving! Gary and I packed up the car with all the food we had prepared and drove to my mom’s. We made it in record time, no traffic at 11am. We arrived at 11:30am and Mom unfortunately was in a daze and not ready for us. She had set the table yesterday…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1751

It’s the day before Thanksgiving and Gary and I are cooking all day. The plan is to make our traditional meal and bring it to Mom’s tomorrow for the three of us to enjoy. I began with making my gluten-free pie crusts for Coconut, Pumpkin and Apple Pies.   We’ll be nibbling all day on…

First Meal: Yes, Gary requested pancakes again and he got them. Today I made Blueberry Corn Pancakes and they were super yummy served with Maple Syrup (a Thanksgiving holiday time treat) and Grapefruit.   Second Meal: Our Pears are ripe and sweet. A lovely appetizer.   Next course was Rice Cakes topped with Guacamole and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1749

Tea: I love when Gary serves me Teeccino with his frothed Soy Milk and Cocoa Dust.   First Meal: It’s a regular favorite meal in our house, Black Beans, Guacamole, Sweet Potatoes and Corn Tortillas. The only difference is the addition of homemade Cashew Yogurt, served as a sour cream and fresh Red Bell Peppers…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1748

First Meal: We had a date with our friend Lawrence at Green Zenphony. He often sings at a nearby church during the Christmas season and we try to get together when he does. We began with Veggie Duck Cold Cuts, Bean Curd Skin stuffed with Mushrooms. Lawrence and I love this dish. Gary does not.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1746

First Meal: It’s a busy Mother’s Day today. I plan on meeting a potential house cleaner for mom’s home. I grabbed a few of the leftover baked Sweet Potato slices and was on my way.   Second Meal: I did a bit of cleaning and putting new sheets on mom’s bed while we waited for…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1745

First Meal: We always save the Kale Stems if we don’t include them in our salads. They are so nutritious, why are they left off the plate? They can be crunchy like celery. If I don’t use them to make Green Juice I try to put them in something. Today I made a Barley Miso…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1744

First Meal: I love making pancakes for Gary because it makes him happy! Today I chose to make Buckwheat Crepes. Gary always goes for the classic sweet version, with Bananas, Peanutbutter and Apricot Butter.   Most times, I prefer savory. We had Miyoko’s Unlox Your Dreams Vegan Cream Cheese to finish up so I spread…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1743

We started with fresh Ruby Red Grapefruits.   Gary made some happy cups of Teeccino topped with Soy Foam and Cocoa Powder.   I slow cooked Steel Cut Oats with Green Apples and Raisins and topped it with Strawberries, Pumpkin Seeds and Bananas. It’s gorgeous.   Second…

So good.   Second Meal: We…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1741

First Meal: Yesterday when we finished the load of Ezekiel bread Gary requested I make the next loaf. So I did, this morning, a four grain, gluten-free seed bread, with Oats, Millet, Corn and Rice.   When it was done we enjoyed some with a hearty Lentil Vegetable Soup.   Homemade Hand Cream: Just like…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1740

First Meal: I will confess, last night’s Manhattans did not go down well. I had not eaten much yesterday and then we drank in the evening. This is not something I am used to. I started to eat a Baked Potato and I couldn’t. What ever I did eat (and drank) came right up. In…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1739

First Meal: One thing I love about Chinese Food are the leftovers that we use to make something different and wonderful. Gary added Cabbage to the Brown Rice Blend and chopped up the remaining dishes from yesterday to create our own version of Crispy Happy Rice, the dish we get at the Vegetarian House in…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1738

First Meal: I love having our homemade Yogurt served in these adorable cermaic yogurt cups. They were Gary’s mom’s and now we get to enjoy them. Our yogurt tastes so good in them, mixed with Bananas, Strawberries, Raisins, Cacao Nibs, Coconut and Flax Seeds.   Snack: It’s that time of the week again, Mother’s Day,…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1737

First Meal: I LOVE LEFTOVERS! Especially today’s offering. The Garbanzo Bean Flour Omelets with a seasoned Spinach Ricotta filling I made two days ago are even better today, warmed up and served with Ketchup. Soup du jour was Carrot Lentil.   Second Meal: The Carrot Lentil Soup was extended and enhanced for dinner with added…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1736

First Meal: After a few days of meal creations, now we are back to simple Carrot Red Lentil Soup. I crave this.   I like serving this soup with Toasted Buckwheat and Walnuts topped with Nutritional Yeast.   Nourished and satisfied, I was ready to interview two fantastic guests on my IT’S ALL ABOUT FOOD…
