What Vegans Eat – Day 1363

Breakfast: We gained an hour today and still we got up late. It was good to catch up on sleep. When we finally got up Gary made Garbanzo Bean Flour Waffles with a Blueberry Banana Compote.   Lunch: It’s a slow day and I am not doing much of anything. I couldn’t even if I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1362

Breakfast: It was one of those days where I had too many events to go to and I intended to go to them all. But first, breakfast. We had a very fine Oatmeal cooked with Pears and topped with Blueberries, Flax Seeds and Homemade Applesauce.   Lunch: First event was an afternoon concert I was…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1361

Breakfast: This breakfast was fun. We warmed up the leftover Sweet Potatoes and Crepes, sliced some Bananas and took out our favorite schmears, Peanut Butter, Sesame Butter and put everything together. Apricot Butter.   Lunch: It was time for a visit to my mom’s home. My choice for lunch is the Cheesecake Factory because I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1360

Breakfast: When we were in California I had tried to make Buckwheat Crepes for our friends John and Deo. Deo only had toasted Buckwheat Groats and I quickly learned they would not work! When at home I make a Buckwheat Flour from raw Buckwheat, not toasted and it makes all the difference. I couldn’t wait…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1359

Breakfast: It’s been a long day that started yesterday! We took a red eye flight from San Francisco and landed this morning. After unpacking we sat down for breakfast before taking a long nap. We don’t have a lot of food in the house but we had what we needed for Oatmeal and Raisins, topped…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1358

Breakfast: Tonight we are on a red eye flight back home to New York. This morning we got a late start. It’s nice to take your time. We have very little food left and Gary made a simple Oatmeal with Raisins. We are out of everything else. Then we were ready for a long walk.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1357

Breakfast: We were leaving John and Deo’s home this morning. Deo prepared a large Berry Smoothie for us to go. I took it along with the message at the entrance of their home, “May Peace Prevail on Earth”. It’s a good thing to think about while sipping.   Gary and I had a meeting in…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1356

Breakfast: Today’s the big day. I will be singing in the Celebration of Lile O. Cruse, memorial program at the Rio Theater in Santa Cruz. This is the reason we came out to California this week. I will be singing The Impossible Dream. The concert is filled with people who have worked with Lile over…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1355

Breakfast: Deo had prepared two big jars with Smoothies for us to enjoy this morning. I know it had Berries and Chia Seeds, but I don’t remember what else was in it. It was tart and fresh and a great thing to have to start the day. Deo invited us to join her for an…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1354

Breakfast: No, no, no! Do we have to go? It’s our last morning here at The Stanford Inn by the Sea. Sadly we packed our bags and then set out to The Ravens Restaurant for our last breakfast. The Carrot Juice and Teapots accent the rustic, cozy decor of the room.   This morning I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1353

Breakfast: Our first morning at Heaven on Earth (a.k.a The Stanford Inn by the Sea) we began with a hearty breakfast at the Ravens. Carrot Juice is rich in color, flavor and nutrition.   Guess what the Burrito Boy chose? A scrambled Tofu Burrito, mixed Garden Vegetables, Black Beans, Rice, Ravens’ Enchilada Sauce, Cashew Cheese…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1352

Breakfast: I have been waiting for this day for a long time. We are going to drive up to Mendocino. I have never been there. Neither has Gary. I have longed to go for a very long time. I especially wanted to stay at the vegan Bed & Breakfast, The Stanford In by the Sea.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1351

Breakfast: We got up at 4am. Everything was packed and ready to go. We finished up a little cooked Steel Cut Oats cereal that was leftover. A couple of hours later, at the airport, I had an apple. I wasn’t hungry really, but my sleep rhythm was off and eating a crunchy, juicy apple seemed…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1350

Breakfast: Today is our last day at home before flying to California. I had to check in on my mom and do some shopping for her. I grabbed a couple of Apples and got in the car.   Lunch: At mom’s house I ran around doing a bunch of chores. Then I made a big…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1349

Breakfast: Our brunch began with Teeccino topped with Soy Foam and Cinnamon.   Do you have a ceramic garlic roaster? They are perfect for warming up tortillas in the oven. There are Ezequiel Sprouted Corn Tortillas inside this one.   Gary made a Tempeh Scramble with Potatoes, Onions and his Secret Spice Mix.   Lunch:…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1348

Breakfast: I really enjoyed my new herbal blend of Rosemary, Thyme and Sage and added Anise Seed to the mix making it even better. This is my new morning brew.   Lunch: My first meal was a favorite, all the leftover Green Zenphony food we had from two days ago, cooked together with water to…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1347

Breakfast: This morning I made a Sage, Rosemary and Thyme tea. This is my newest herbal blend.   Lunch: We’ve been mixing it up a bit more and Oats do not appear every day. I wanted them today and made a big pot of Steel Cut Oats with Raisins and Apples so there would be…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1346

Breakfast: There are plenty of Fruity Waffles for this morning’s breakfast. Yes, I overcooked them! Something that rarely happens. They were still good, topped with Blueberry Banana Coulis.   Dinner: We are making an effort to eat super-clean and that means good ol’ home cooking. Except for today. Too many things going on, too little…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1345

Breakfast: This morning I made Maté tea and sweetened it with a pinch of Stevia. I don’t usually care for stevia but it seems to go well with Yerba Maté tea, I think because they come from the same region around Uraguay.   Lunch: I was on deck for making our first meal. I sautéed…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1344

Breakfast: Today began with Genmaicha. I drank my tea and prepared a little for my radio show in the afternoon. I had invited a woman from yesterday’s Vegan Lady Boss Meeting to be my second guest and I needed to get all my social media postings out.   Lunch: At lunchtime, we had our first…
