What Vegans Eat – Day 1579

What Vegans Eat – Day 1575

First Meal: I had an 11am rehearsal for a concert I’ll be singing in. I just had some tea and took off. I prefer singing on an empty stomach than a full one. Sure enough I was super hungry when I came home. Gary made comfort food: Organic Mashed Potatoes, organic sautéed Kale and organic…
