What Vegans Eat – Day 1703

First Meal: It’s just another day here at Responsible Eating And Living headquarters. We started we classic Oatmeal, with Raisins and Apples. After I shot the photo, I piled on Flax Seeds and Coconut Flakes on top of my bowl.   Second Meal: Towards the end of our long walk when the need for fuel…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1702

First Meal: I am recovering from my jet lag and fatigue. I was motivated to do a little more today and that included making brunch. While Gary slept in I made a big Kale Salad with Onions, Carrots, Celery, Figs, Apples and a Pomegranate Vinegar and Pumpkin Seed Dressing. Sound good? It was!   Simultaneously…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1701

First Meal: This morning we had plans to meet Gary’s cousin Lou and his wife Amy for brunch. They live in Sausalito and come to NY frequently. Amy, a new vegan, wanted to meet at Peace Foods. We are still not on the NY time zone and waking up at 9am was brutal. We got…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1700

First Meal: We are not ready for the New York time zone. We got up really, really late. I was going into the Progressive Radio Network studio today to pre-record an upcoming show with Joyce Friedman and David Karopkin. Gary planned on joining me and we thought we might do something afterwards. We managed to…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1699

We arrived home from California early this morning on a red eye. It’s going to be a long day. We drank a little tea and took a long nap. I wanted to visit my mom today since I haven’t seen her in a week. I got up at about 1pm and dragged myself out of…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1695: travel edition – Palo Alto, California

First Meal: Yesterday we picked up organic Purple Potatoes at Staff of Like in Santa Cruz, a rare find! Gary prepared them in the morning for breakfast with Orange Cherry Tomatoes.   I suggested making a Green Salad, crumbling the remaining Garlic and Pepper-Flavored Tofu we picked up yesterday along with Avocado and more Orange…

Rosh Hashanah

The best part about holidays for me is the food! I love celebrating all holiday foods, updating traditional recipes, making them not only delicious, but kinder to the nonhuman animals we share this planet with, gentler on the environment, and healthier. Here are my favorites for the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah.   Challah Bread…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1690

First Meal: We’re flying! Flying! Flying! AGAIN. I came back from Costa Rica, Gary returned from the Bay Area. We did our laundry, went to a fundraising gala and are now heading back west for a funeral. We know the routine, we’ve taken the same evening flight many times now. Gary prepared the Baked Tofu…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1689

What have we got here? About twenty years ago I bought a neck pillow to bring on planes with me. It was filled with buckwheat hulls and was covered in organic cotton. I’ve used it many times and love that it is stuffed with a food-related material rather than something synthetic and toxic. I got…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1688

First Meal: Gary’s sister’s mother-in-law has passed and we made our reservations to head back to California for the funeral. We have a couple of days at home to do our laundry from the last trip, finish some projects on deadline and pack up again. Today we’ll be working on a grant proposal. We also…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1687

First Meal: Gary arrived home early this morning on a Red Eye from California. I offered him organic Red Grapes to munch on while he unpacked. They disappeared quickly.   Gary went to sleep and I joined him for a little while to get in a few more hours. I woke up hungry and had…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1686

Green Juice: Sometimes, more often than not, I have overly ambitious plans for the day. Today was one of those days. I signed up for an 8:45am training class with the Board of Elections to be a poll worker for the upcoming elections. The location was about an hour’s walk from home. I thought I…
