What Vegans Eat – Day 1493

First Meal: Life in the Big City with a car and no owned parking spot means playing the “Alternate Side Parking” game. My car was parked on a Thursday side, where street cleaning occurs from 11;30am-1pm. The street cleaning is a joke, the cleaning truck rushes through in a blink. But it does get some…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1492

First Meal: Gary is still in San Jose and will be there for a few more weeks. It’s not easy being separated. I pretended he was here an made some frothy, organic Soy Milk like he always does, to put on my Maté tea.   Then I made Fruity Corn Waffles. Gary, I know you…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1491

First Meal: It’s the day of my annual physical. I go for a number of reasons. One is to get blood drawn for a CA125 test, the marker for ovarian cancer. It’s been over twelve years since I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Of course I am thrilled to have that behind me. The one…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1489

First Meal: History repeats itself. At least yesterday and today did. I had plans to go to some open houses to look at Manhattan apartments. The window was tight, noon to 1:30pm. Still on California time, I stayed up late. I forgot that the clocks were moving ahead today. I woke up and it was…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1488

First Meal: My plan was to visit my cousin Luis who is in the hospital today. I went to bed late (still on California time) and woke up late. I wasn’t very hungry and I didn’t have a lot of time. I grabbed a bottle of Tea’s Tea unsweetened White and Green Tea that our…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1487

Tea: It’s Mother’s Day, the day I visit my mom. I have not seen her in over three weeks since I have been in California. I made myself a new tea my sister-n-law gave me, a blend of Maté, Cinnamon and Peppermint. I never would have thought to mix these but I like it. I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1486

First Meal: On paper, red eye flight seem so efficient. You spend the day wherever you are, get on the plane to sleep and arrive at your destination in the morning. The only problem is you feel awful the day you land, all day long. When I arrived home, I unpacked, went through the mail…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1485

Tea: We got up a little earlier than usual. Gary and I were meeting Raya, a dear friend and former student of Gary’s, at Manresa Bread in Campbell. There wasn’t anything there that interested us to eat but the teas were tempting. Gary had an herbal tea with Carrots in it! I went with a…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1484

First Meal: I’ll be leaving to go back home tomorrow evening, alone. Gary will be staying here in San Jose to do some theater work and help with details related to his father’s passing. We’re feeling a bit sad that we’ll be separated. Gary set out what I called a “hotel-style breakfast.” We had Gary’s…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1483

First Meal: After our Taste of Millennium feast last night I thought I would never need to eat again! But the morning came, things moved along as they do and I was hungry anew. I had moved one of the Green Juices I froze to the refrigerator to defrost. We had organic Bananas, organic Green…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1482

First Meal: I had set out a jar of frozen green juice to defrost yesterday and we never had it. I left it in the refrigerator. Gary blended it with frozen, organic Strawberries for a tart morning treat that we had with reheated cooked organic Oatmeal.   Snack: Yesterday was Gary’s dad’s funeral and today…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1481

First Meal: The day has arrived, Gary’s dad’s funeral. We have been preparing for this for a while. Gary had been working on his eulogy for days, and I have prepared to sing Schubert’s Ave Maria. I knew we wouldn’t eat until 1pm so I suggested we have Oatmeal before heading to the mortuary. It…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1480

First Meal: Our first meal came late, at 2pm. We were ready for it with a good appetite. This is one of my favorite kinds of meals, with the whole grain, the bean and the sauce already made. Today we had organic Black Beans. organic Brown Rice, organic Purple Sweet Potatoes, Avocado and organic Tahini…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1479

First Meal: We had a lot to do early in the day and we didn’t sit down to eat until around 2pm. By then we were so hungry. We quickly warmed up all the prepared food: organic Polenta, organic Black Beans, organic Sweet Potatoes. I topped my Beans with Tahini Dressing, it’s like sour cream…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1478

First Meal: After a family meeting at the mortuary for the upcoming funeral it was time for lunch. For those who have followed this blog for a while should recognize these next photos. Whenever we visit Khanh’s we always order the same dishes. They always look and taste the same too, but the food is…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1477

First Meal: Gary made Blueberry Bread. He’s been talking about making it for weeks. A dream come true. It’s beautiful and gluten-free. Served with organic Peanut Butter (just peanuts!) and organic Apricot Butter (just apricots and water).   Second Meal: After an intense morning of meeting a project deadline and broadcasting my radio show with…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1476

First Meal: We are relaxing, trying to get in a celebratory mode today with Gary’s show completed. However, also quite numb because of the recent passing of his father. I suggested going to Crepes Bistro. We begin with Green Juice and Chamomile Tea.   Gary ordered the Avocado Crepe, his usual.   And I went…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1475

First Meal: It’s the last day of performances for Gary’s show. I stay’d back to do some work. When I got hungry I was happy to reheat the remaining organic Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Vegetables.   Snack: When I am hungry and not wanting to prepare anything, an organic Apple will hold me over.  …

What Vegans Eat – Day 1474

First Meal: Gary was off to the theater for the matinee performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I plan on joining him for the evening show. I served myself some organic Rolled Oats today, with organic Strawberries, organic Pumpkin Seeds and organic Soy Milk and I made a pot of organic Maté.   Second Meal:…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1473

First Meal: I wanted to make Breakfast Black Beans but I didn’t have cocoa powder. I did have a 70% cocoa dark chocolate bar that I almost added to my pot of cooked organic Black Beans, organic Purple Sweet Potatoes, organic Red Onions and organic Cinnamon. But then I decided not to. What was amazing…
