What Vegans Eat – Day 1430

First Meal: Did I forget I loved big bowls of brothy soups with lots of good things in it? This dish came together so quick, I couldn’t believe how good it was. In a saucepan I added cubed, sprouted Tofu, frozen Corn and Spinach, sliced Red Onions, cubed Purple Sweet Potatoes and Cilantro that was…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1429

Since I don’t eat at normal hours, I am changing the format here. Instead of Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and I am going with First Meal, Second Meal Third Meal and so on. Let’s see how this goes. First Meal: My first meal came at 10:30am, a bowl of cubed Papaya.   Next I had…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1428

Breakfast: When I knew Beth was coming to stay at my home a few days ago I started soaking Almonds to make Almond Ricotta. Why? Because everything becomes amazingly delicious when topped with this simple food. In the end, we ate a couple of meals together in restaurants and I didn’t make the ricotta, I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1427

Breakfast: Beth, my dear friend from Costa Rica is here in New York, en route to Cleveland for her mom’s 90th birthday! She stayed over last night. I had many options to offer for breakfast but neither of us was hungry after our heavy (read: oily, salty) meal at the Seasoned Vegan last night. I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1426

Breakfast: After a long day of home projects yesterday I was grateful to sleep in a bit. When it was time for nourishment I finished the Black Bean Tomato Vegetable Stew I had made for dinner last night.   Lunch: I am in a bit of a fog today. I am noticing a pattern. I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1425

Breakfast: This morning I had to get up early. Fortunately this is something I don’t have to do very often. But today I had an audition in Manhattan. I wasn’t hungry, so I poured some of yesterday’s Serious Smoothie into a smaller glass to bring along with me. After I sang, I sat in the…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1424

Breakfast: While Gary is away in California I have made myself a long list of things that need to get done. Closets need to be cleaned, walls painted, books written, paperwork completed, get it? I started making a dent today. This meant little time for food. I ate an Apple while prepping my first meal.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1423

Breakfast: Gary and I have not spent much time apart for most of the 12 years we’ve been together. We are both being conscientious about eating well but I know for me it’s different. It takes more effort to make the effort for oneself rather than for the one you care for. In the morning…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1422

Breakfast: I never get up this early in the day. Today was special. I was going to an audition! I wasn’t sure how long I would be waiting so I wanted to make sure I was fueled for the day. I scooped some cooked Pinto Beans and cooked Millet into a pot, added water and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1421

Breakfast: It’s Day 2 without Gary. 🙁 And it’s New Year’s Day! Whoop dee doo… I wasn’t hungry until the afternoon. My first meal was at 2pm. We had cooked up a lot of Pinto Beans and Millet a few days ago and I am going to be eating them all week. Today’s soup with…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1420

Breakfast: Last night I slept at my mom’s house. I was up really late catching up on my work. I had to wait for her to go to sleep before I could start working. She was very chatty to day. It reminded me of when I was in high school. I would wait until everyone…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1419

  Breakfast: It’s a bittersweet morning. Gary will be flying to San Jose today, a week earlier than planned to be with his dad in the hospital. Gary will be out there directing for a couple of months and I will join him in about 4 weeks. I wanted to make this breakfast something special.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1418

  Breakfast: Luxury Hotel Breakfast again? Yes! It’s the weekend and we’re making the most of it. Plus, the upcoming week’s events have changed for us. We were planning to drive to our friends’ annual New Year’s Eve party in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and see some theater on Broadway during the first week of the new…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1417

Breakfast: I made some Maté tea this morning with a little Coconut Milk. No breakfast today. We are going to meet my brother’s family at my mom’s house and go to lunch.   Lunch: After doing a big shopping for Mom, Gary and I unloaded her groceries at her house. Then we went to P.F.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1416

Breakfast: I call this Luxury Hotel Oats. When I pour Coconut Milk on my Rolled Oats I feel like I am dining at a fine hotel restaurant while on vacation. This bowl had Blueberries, Strawberries, Apples and Flax Seeds (on the bottom). I don’t think the hotel would serve Flax Seeds, so I know I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1415

Breakfast: I made some coconut milk this morning. That means I take a 7-ounce box of Edward & Sons, Let’s Do Organic, Organic Creamed Coconut, Unsweetened and blend it with water. They recommend to blend it with double the amount of water or 14 ounces. We add at least 4 cups. It’s still very rich.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1414

Breakfast: We slept in late. It’s Christmas Day. I got up before Gary and made us some Ginger Tumeric Lattes with fresh grated Ginger, Date Paste and Coconut Milk.   Lunch: We didn’t eat our first meal until 5pm! We just were not hungry. But we prepped some food to eat later on in the…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1413

Breakfast: Staffordshire Oatcakes again for breakfast. I’ve been dreaming about them. I had them the same as yesterday, only with added Black Olives.   Gary had his with Peanut Butter and Raisins.   Lunch: As I had written before, one of my favorite things is to make soup with my Green Zenphony leftovers. This soup…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1412

Breakfast: I made Staffordshire Oatcakes! Let the celebrations begin. Gary has his sweet with Bananas, Blueberry Banana Coulis and Apricot Butter. FOr me, it’s Bagel Style with Sliced Onions, Tomatoes and a schmear made with Tahini, Miso and Nutritional Yeast.   Tea Break: It’s Teeccino Break time with Soy Foam and lots of Cinnamon.  …

What Vegans Eat – Day 1411

Lunch: The weekend has begun. I decided to make Vegetable Corn Cakes. We haven’t had these in a while. I put Corn in the batter in place of cooked Carrots and Onions as in the recipe. They make a mighty stack.   We set the table with sweet and savory selections. Sweet for Gary, savory…
