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

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

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 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.…
