What Vegans Eat – Day 1791

First Meal: If you’ve been reading my blog, which will soon be five years old, you will know that I love soup. You should also know that I love making soup out of leftovers which is what I did today. I took the String Bean Dish with Buckwheat and Onions added water and some beans.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1790

First Meal: I love breakfasts that taste like dessert. This morning’s Breakfast Polenta was just that, topped with cooked Raisins, Raspberry Coulis, Coconut Flakes and Flax Seeds.   Second Meal: Gary’s sister Deb gifted us with several boxes of Rancho Gordo Beans last year. We just finished up our older inventory of dried beans and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1789

First Meal: We are going on a road trip to Connecticut to see a property. We like to look at homes for sale in different places, hoping one day to find the place that makes us both melt, or even just one of us. We had Rolled Oats with Coconut, walnuts, Cacao Nibs, Raisins and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1788

First Meal: I have to have my beans. I soaked and cooked some Pinto Beans yesterday and grabbed a small bowl for breakfast.   Then I sat down with Gary and we had our regular breakfast of Rolled Oats with Apples, Raisins, Walnuts and Soy Milk.   Second Meal: I went to visit mom today…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1787

First Meal: So far the New Year is starting off deliciously. I made a classic Oatmeal with Raisins and smothered it with a warm Strawberry Coulis and served it along with Pink Grapefruit.   Gary prepared our cups of his classic Teeccino with Soy Foam and Cocoa Dust.   Second Meal: I’ll admit I couldn’t…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1786

Green Juice: On the road again. We had a wonderful New Year’s Eve and woke up on the first day of 2020 in our hotel room. Gary slept in and I went to work out in the gym. I wanted to start the New Year off with exercise! We had brought some frozen, homemade Green…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1785

First Meal: It’s the last day of the year! We’ll be heading to Bethlehem PA for the annual party at the home of my freshman college roommate Tamera and her husband Keith. It’s also Keith’s birthday. The throw the BEST parties. We always try to make it and sometimes we can’t. But this year we…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1784

Tea: Gary knows I love Teeccino topped with Soy Foam and a bit of Chocolate Powder on top. I’m lucky that he makes it for me often.   First Meal: One good turn deserves another. Gary loves pancakes so I made them for him, plain and some with Chocolate Chips! It’s the holiday season so…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1783

First Meal: Soaked Oats this morning with Apples, Raisins, and Flax Seeds. We were planning to visit a location in Connecticut in the morning and then return to go to a party n White Plains at 4pm. But then I realized that the party was at 1pm so we rescheduled going to Connecticut. I didn’t…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1782

First Meal: Back at mom’s for a quick visit before the end of the year. We went to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch. I was feeling extra hungry and got the Edamame for an appetizer.   The Vegan Cobb Salad always has my name on it.   Second Meal: Back at home we had a…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1781

First Meal: We like our waffles. The Steel Cut Oat and Millet Waffle recipe is one of the best. It’s especially good topped with Raspberries and Cashew Yogurt.   Second Meal: I find serving a meal in a big bowl has a comfort food feel to it. This big bowl was filled with Millet, Black…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1780

First Meal: This morning I craved Roll Oats and I made us a couple of bowls with Coconut, Apple Sauce, Yogurt, Raspberries and Walnuts.   Second Meal: Gary had an appointment with his oral surgeon and I had a doctor appointment after that in Union Square. A fun day of appointments. Peacefoods is near Union…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1779

First Meal: It’s Christmas Day. We were trying to decide what to make for breakfast and couldn’t. I think it’s because we both knew there were still three doughnuts in the house. Doughnuts for breakfast, hurray! I will admit that doughnuts are one of the most unhealthiest foods to eat. When I was a child,…

REAL Body Cream

Many of the commercial personal care products available have toxic ingredients in them. I like putting products on my skin that I know are safe to eat. The skin is the largest organ in the human body and what you put on your skin, goes in. I make a cream that I use on my…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1778

First Meal: It’s Christmas Eve. I didn’t want to spend the day at home. I suggested we try Champ’s Diner for a late brunch. I had some things to do and by the time we got out of the house it was about 1pm. The restaurant was closing today at 3pm and the last seating…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1777

First Meal: We had a date with my friend Nancy to meet, eat and see a movie. I chose Blossom du Jour in the Times Square area but we couldn’t get out fast enough. It was a small space with dark, depressing, graffiti urban decor, it was overheated and there was no place to sit.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1776

First Meal: We’ll be going to mom’s today. My cousin Donna is visiting from Florida with her daughters and my brother’s family will be joining us too. Tonight is the first night of Chanukah. I had this crazy idea that we should make Potato Pancakes at mom’s house. I had the groceries delivered to mom’s.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1775: Food for a Tooth Extraction

First Meal: Gary’s been through a lot. His gum where the tooth was extracted is healing well. He’s been sleeping fine at night. He deserves pancakes! And they are soft, no serious chewing required. I made him a big stack.   Second Meal: Another excellent thing to prepare when eating soft foods is the green…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1774: Food for a Tooth Extraction

First Meal: I am eating in solidarity with Gary who had a tooth extracted. That means purées, mashed, mushy foods. Baby food. Sometimes food like this is nice, liked mashed potatoes or a creamy soup. But when there’s nothing to chew, you can go nuts! I warmed up a plate of three puréed dishes: Red…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1773: Food for a Tooth Extraction

It’s been a long day already. Gary had a tooth extracted earlier today. Neither of us wanted to eat before his 11am appointment, although I made a thermos of Vanilla Black tea to bring to the Oral Surgeon’s office. Afterward I drove Gary home and then walked to our neighborhood pharmacist and grocery store to…
