What Vegans Eat – Day 1616

Green Juice: And the work begins. Our daytime workshop starts at 10am and ends at 4pm. We were up early, on New York time and excited about the day. Gary had to print some things at Kinko’s. I drank a Green Juice while I waited.   First Meal: I brought along soaked organic Rolled Oats…

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. Carrying them home in the heat was very challenging but worth it. The watermelon was very sweet. The cantaloupe was not. But it was still refreshing.   Second…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1613

First Meal: Watermelon is often all I want to eat in this hot and humid weather. I once heard that the white part just underneath the skin is very nutritious. So I made sure I cut the melon close to the skin. I like the combination of the sweet red part and the almost bitter…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1612

First Meal: I am so happy to have our terrace back! I sat out in the morning sun, eating Watermelon and preparing music for the upcoming workshops I will be teaching in California.   As the sun got hotter I went back inside and had a small bowl of cold, cooked organic Red Lentils. They…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1611

First Meal: I made a lot of pancakes yesterday so there’s plenty for today. That’s something to smile about!   Snack: When it’s hot and humid I want to eat melons. Any kind will do but Watermelon is best.   Second Meal: We finally got our terrace back and I love it so much. It’s…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1610

First Meal: If you have been reading this blog for a while you will know that I like to clear out the refrigerator of most things before we travel. We’ll be leaving for California in a few days. There are a few glass jars with small amounts grains and flours so I decided to make…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1609

First Meal: I am in a reading fest, preparing to prerecord a few radio shows ahead of time for when I’ll be in California in the next few weeks. Keeping things simple I had a pre-made Steel Cut Oats and Millet Waffle with mashed Banana. Gary went with Rice Cakes.   Second Meal: When the…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1608

First Meal: We will be traveling to California next week to do a Musical Theater, Vocal and Acting Workshops for Teens and Adults.

What Vegans Eat – Day 1607

First Meal: The big family day was here. My sister came up from Florida with her husband and her son drove all the way with his girlfriend and his dog. My brother came with his wife and two kids. The plan was to meet at P.F. Chang’s. It was surprising to see very little traffic…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1606

First Meal: The day after our anniversary, Gary served me a perfect cup of Chai with Soy Milk.   Then we enjoyed Steel Cut Oats and Millet Waffles that we made yesterday. I put Raspberry Pear Compote on my first waffle.   The second waffle was a bit more decadent. We had a small amount…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1605

First Meal: It’s July 4th. While many in America are celebrating Independence Day, Gary and I are celebrating something much more meaningful and important, our 13-year anniversary! Gary emailed me 13 years ago and we haven’t stopped talking since. I made Anniversary Breakfast Waffles with Raspberry Pear Compote and Peanut Butter Cream.   I served…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1604

First Meal: I made myself a quick and cool breakfast of organic Rolled Oats, organic Coconut, organic Strawberries, organic Raisins, organic Flax Seeds and organic Walnuts.   Second Meal: Our late lunch was an eclectic mix of dishes. I was craving Tofu No-Egg Salad so I made a big bowl quickly, using a Cashew-based Salad…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1603

First Meal: Ever since my dad died in 2017 I have had a few big projects on my list to complete at mom’s house. This week I am determined to finish one of them which is making the upstairs office into a guest room, complete with a real bed. Before leaving I went across the…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1602

First Meal: I love when I am in the mood for crepes. Whipping up the organic Buckwheat batter is easy. Standing by the grill requires patience, but it’s an opportunity to stand in gratitude, with a silent meditation for the gifts you are creating for you and your family. Gary helped and made the organic…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1601

First Meal: The Kale Salad I wasn’t ready for last night was perfect this morning.   I was still hungry and I gobbled up the last of the Red Lentil Soup which is really a thick stew. It’s hot out and I ate it cold.   Snack: Working like a machine today, I stopped to…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1600

First Meal: I have gone over in my head how this day is going to go and already things are going wrong. There was a lot of traffic driving to mom’s. My brother lives further away and he’s late with even more traffic all along the way. I sit with mom and her neighbor Laurie…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1599

What Vegans Eat – Day 1598

First Meal: Today is mom’s day. I have an ambitious plan this week to make the office into a guest room. She’s not happy about it but there needs to be a comfortable place for guests to stay especially since she’ll be needing more assistance in the near future. I will be cleaning up today,…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1597

First Meal: I have three events to go to today, no time for cooking. This morning I went to a followup doctor’s appointment. Afterwards I was heading to my friend John’s home to prerecord an interview with Encar Garcia Vila. I was early and stopped to eat a couple of organic Apples in the park.…
