What Vegans Eat – Day 1524

First Meal: It’s the 12th Annual Veggie Pride Parade! Gary and I got up late. I warmed up the Rice and Broccoli Soup I made last night and the leftover Pancakes for Gary. Gary passed on eating. I could not go without food.   Snack: We got to the event after the parade had finished…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1523

First Meal: Our neighbor sent us the New York Times article this morning about Japanese Soufflé pancakes. As soon as I read it I wanted to make them for breakfast. Breakfast at 2pm, for us. I looked at the published recipe with eggs, milk and sugar and set out to make my own version that…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1522

First Meal: The work being done on the exterior of the building was excrutiatingly loud. We did what work we could and then went out for a walk and a late first meal at Green Zenphony. I had Miso Soup.   Gary had the Wonton Soup.   He selected the Sesame Tofu for his main…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1521

First Meal: Our first meal came late and it was a feast. As I worked to finalize our tax filings Gary made Baked Tofu, Steamed Cauliflower and Japanese Yams.   The special ingredient was the secret sauce. Gary made a cheesy sauce yesterday and I couldn’t wait ti spread it on everything again.   Second…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1520

First Meal: Yes, I am lucky! Gary asked me this morning, “what would you like to have for breakfast, I’ll make you anything?” I asked for Yellow Potatoes. I didn’t give any more details. Gary filled in the blanks. He made Home Fries with a cheesy sauce made from organic Silken Tofu, organic Miso and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1518

First Meal: Gary’s home! Hurray. He took a red eye flight and arrived this morning at about 6am. When he got home we had organic Peppermint Tea and organic Strawberries. I hadn’t slept well knowing he was in the air coming home so we took a long nap. There’s work going on outside on the…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1517

First Meal: Since I didn’t finish all that I had planned on doing yesterday, today’s to-do list has more than originally planned. Gary comes home tomorrow morning and I want the apartment to be warm and welcoming. That means I need to clean it from top to bottom. I also have a book to read…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1516

First Meal: Ever since my dad died in 2017 my mom has no one to serve. I believe we are all here to serve, to be of service in one capacity or another. For mom, she literally is here to serve; to serve food. She has mild dementia now and has little to motivate her…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1515

First Meal: Today is tightly scheduled. The key is to stay calm and carry on. I did not sleep well because my foot that was just operated on was bothering me. There was enough pain to make me limp. I moved slowly getting ready for the day. I had to move the car by 11:30am…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1514

First Meal: My organic Red Lentil Stew was my choice for the first course.   While it heated, I took the food processor and grated an organic Red Cabbage, organic Kale, organic Red Onion and organic Apples. I took half of the Red Cabbage and made Sauerkraut. I took the rest and mixed in organic…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1513

First Meal: I’m having a little surgery today to remove a brown spot from the bottom of my foot. I grabbed two organic Apples to take with me on the subway. The wait was long at the doctor’s office and I am glad I had them with me.   Second Meal: The procedure went well…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1512

First Meal: Breakfast came at noon with reheated organic Butternut Squash Soup, a slice of homemade Bread slathered with Tahini Dressing and my own blend of Herb and Spice Tea.   Green Juice: There’s a lot of noisy work happening on the exterior of our building. You can’t hear yourself think it’s so bad. I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1511

First Meal: There are no more whole grains at home to cook. I am not ready to go shopping yet, I want to clear out what we have. Today I finished up the All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour and made Pancakes using half of this Pancake recipe with some small modifications. I may be far from a…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1510

First Meal: There was one Garbanzo Bean Flour Waffle left which had my name on it. With Gary away, there’s no one else here, of course it’s for me. But it wasn’t going to me enough. I spread some organic Fig Butter on it and ate it while I prepared some more serious food.  …

What Vegans Eat – Day 1509

First Meal: I have two major tasks today: read at least 1/3 of Eat To Beat Disease for my podcast interview this Tuesday; and start preparing our income tax filing. I decided to read first. I sliced two organic Oranges and enjoyed them as I made Garbanzo Bean Flour Waffles.   I made half the…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1508

What Vegans Eat – Day 1507

First Meal: I thought I would make a hearty, savory brunch today, in the style of Gary De Mattei. He’s been away in California for so long now! I should have followed one of his recipes but I just made it up as I went along and made this organic Tempeh, Kale and Tomatoes dish…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1506

I warmed up organic Black Beans, organic Purple Sweet Potatoes, organic Yellow Corn and organic Blueberries together.   Second Meal: I had a rough few hours on the phone trying to resolve an issue with…
