What Vegans Eat – Day 1627

Morning Tea Roy’s Station is a happy place. It always feels good to be here. It’s a beautiful morning and our last day of teaching. We left the house early and had tea at Roy’s. My new tea of choice is the Peach Apricot. It’s supposed to be a black tea blend but I don’t…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1626

First Meal: We don’t always eat in the morning. I might grab an Apple or drink some water with Lemon. After Gary’s acting class in the morning and before my afternoon voice class, we met at “The Steps of the Palace” at Hoover for Rice Cakes, Peanut Butter and Apricot Jam. I am grateful for…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1614

First Meal: We have a small grocery across the street where I usually buy melons. I picked up a watermelon and two cantaloupes a few days ago.
