First Meal: I stayed over at my mom’s last night so that I could take her for a blood test. I took her for her annual exam a couple of weeks ago and the doctor wanted her to fast before drawing blood for some tests. I wish we knew that before. I put a note…

First Meal: It’s Ground Hog’s Day. It’s also my Dad’s birthday and my Grandmother’s birthday. Dad would have been 91. He died at 89. My Grandmother would have been a lot older! She died at 90.

What Vegans Eat – Day 1447

First Meal: I am painting furniture, writing, doing accounting, exercising, singing, who had time to make meals? That’s why I love leftovers, or food that’s prepped and cooked and ready to go when hungry. I made this colorful plate in no time at all: Organic Butternut Squash, organic sliced Tomatoes, Avocado, organic Butternut Squash Seeds,…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1446

I ate late last night. I like to wait at least 12 hours after my last meal before having my first meals of the next day. But I was hungry, so I ate at noon, only an 11-hour fast. It happens sometimes. No judgement. I made a big Arugula Salad with Butternut Squash and toasted…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1442

I almost forgot how much I had planned for today! Could I do it all? First assignment, get up early and go to my audio appointment at Mt. Sinai Hospital. I got hearing aids two years ago and I thought it would be a good idea to see how I was doing in the hearing…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1441

What Vegans Eat – Day 1440

First Meal: It’s my last day of the Euphebe trial. Originally I thought I would save the last two meals for another time. But then I got hungry and I was grateful for the Euphebe lunch and put it in an oven. It looked good, Root Vegetable Gratin with Butternut Squash and Tuscan Kale made…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1439

First Meal: It’s my fifth day on the Euphebe Plant-Based Program. It’s been an interesting journey for someone who likes to cook and prepare one’s own meals. As I mentioned when I started this plan, I am not the ideal person for it but it’s fascinating to try it out. On this plan, you are…
