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…

First Meal: Gary’s sister’s mother-in-law has passed and we made our reservations to head back to California for the funeral.

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…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1684

First Meal: I am staying in this lovely hotel right by the airport in San Jose, Costa Rica. My flight is at noon so I got up early to swim in the pool before leaving here. The outdoor pool here is gorgeous. I swam for about 45 minutes and then I got ready to leave.…

Fruit: I am coming to the end of my trip. Today I will take a 3 1/2-hour bus from San Isidro to San Jose. Before I go I want to swim. This is the rainy season where the mornings are beautiful and sunny and the afternoons and early evening have downpours. The morning is the…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1677

First Meal: The joy of Oatmeal in the morning and Teeccino with steamy, foamy Soy Milk. It’s a great way to start the day.   Second Meal: I am preparing for my flight to Costa Rica tomorrow. It will be a long day, with a three-hour bus ride after my flight. I decided to bring…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1676

Tea: If I had to choose a favorite tea, would it be Bai Mu Dan? I love it’s refreshing flavor and fresh scent. I also love smelling the leaves after they have been brewed. It makes me feel like I am in a grassy field with wildflowers.   First Meal: Yesterday’s Pasta and Pea becomes…
