What Vegans Eat – Day 1467

First Meal: Gary and I are happy to be together. We are happy eating together. But we don’t have to eat the same way. I made organic Polenta and topped it with Gary’s homemade Marinara Sauce and Nutritional Yeast. Gary topped his Polenta with Apricot Butter. Savory or Sweet – have it your way.  …

First Meal: We had no idea this would be the day. Gary’s 93-year-old-dad had had a difficult night, moaning and groaning throughout most of it. His evening caretaker was in need of help and called the women who managed him during the day. She knew he was going fast. Gary’s dad didn’t want to go…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1456
