What Vegans Eat – Day 25

Breakfast: You’ve seen these before, our REAL corn bread, this time made into corn muffins. It’s an easy favorite. We had them with Apricot Butter and English Breakfast Tea.   Lunch: There was still some Kohlrabi purée leftover from a few days ago. I had it plain and simple and Gary spiced his bowl with…

What Vegans Eat – Day 24

The day began with news headlines I never thought I’d read: Indian State Bans Possession and Sale of Beef and Elephants to Retire From Ringling Brothers Stage. While nowhere near perfect: the Indian State of Maharashtra’s ban is on the slaughter of bulls, bullocks and calves but still allows for the slaughter of water buffaloes…

What Vegans Eat – Day 23

As I write this blog my head is reeling with my long list of things to do. We are planning for our April 22 fundraiser and working on securing sponsors and underwriters. That tax date of April 15 is fast approaching as I think about what I need to do well before that date, for…

What Vegans Eat – Day 22

Breakfast: The day began with a treat! One hamentaschen cookie. Why not? It’s like a breakfast pastry and the modification I made to the recipe gave the dough a bread-like texture. I had it with Genmaicha Green Tea and an orange. It went well with the book I was finishing for my interview later in…

What Vegans Eat – Day 21

Breakfast: This was a simple breakfast and get-to-work-as-fast-as-you-can kind of day. We had vanilla tea and hot oatmeal with apples and dried apricots that I topped with nothing-but-the-flax, 2 Tablespoons ground flax. Got to keep those omega-3’s up. And speaking of nutrients, here’s what vitamins I take at breakfast: Vitamin D3, the vegan version and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 20

When people talk about food, they often mention cravings. I never crave animal foods for a number of reasons. I haven’t eaten them in a very long time. The #1 reason for me is knowing that non human animals are not “its” or “things” or “food”. They are thinking, feeling, sensitive beings, like human animals.…

What Vegans Eat, Day 19

I love tea. Lately I have been enjoying some of the lighter green and white tea varieties. We order mostly from Arbor Teas in bulk, organic, fair trade, loose leaf teas, which are proudly stored in tins in our tea drawer.   We were out of black tea for a short time and when our…

What Vegans Eat – Day 18

We keep some crazy hours here at Responsible Eating And Living. We have begun to prepare for our first fundraiser in New York, since we launched the organization in 2011. You can find more about it here. We got up late and I was craving savory Japanese food, starting with miso soup. I chopped up…

What Vegans Eat – Day 17

  Breakfast: When I need inspiration for what to eat for breakfast I go to the Responsible Eating And Living App on my phone and look for the recipes I love. We typically have a variety of gluten-free flours and starches on hand along with nut and seeds, nut and seed butters, homemade fruit butters…

What Vegans Eat – Day 16

  Breakfast: The big pot of millet I made a few days ago was finished this morning with cold millet cereal served with coconut milk. It was quick, easy and good. Our coconut milk is made from creamed coconut and water. No extra added anything.   Daily Green Juice: Kale, collards, Celery, Lemon, Lime  …

What Vegans Eat – Day 15

With the extra millet I made yesterday breakfast came together quickly:   Breakfast: Millet Cereal, version 2 with apples, apricots, flax seeds and coconut milk. Served with orange slices and Bai Mu Dan White tea.   Daily Green Juice: Kale, Collards, Celery, Beets, Carrots, Lemon.   We skipped lunch again but I did nibble on…

What Vegans Eat – Day 14

Well, we started this blog two weeks ago and I have to say I have been overwhelmed with the positive responses we’ve been getting! Thank you. Let’s keep going, shall we? In the morning I made a big pot of cooked millet to use for several different meals, the first being this breakfast. I find…

What Vegans Eat – Day 13

Breakfast: I confess – I love oatmeal. It’s creamy and comforting and never boring. At least not the way we make it. With the kitchen stocked with essentials (and my essentials are probably different than most), oatmeal is chocked with tasty surprises. This morning’s all organic oatmeal was cooked with sunflower seeds, apricots, coconut flakes…

What Vegans Eat – Day 12

We eat when we are hungry. What a concept! Sometimes we have a lavish breakfast, sometimes none at all. This was a no breakfast day, just some Genmaicha green tea. Instead of eating I cooked up a storm. I like to prepare food to eat during the rest of the week. We had a lot…

What Vegans Eat – Day 11

Yesterday was exceptionally cold here in New York. I had learned the day before that an uncle had died and Gary and I were off to the funeral the next day, this cold day, with temperatures in the single digits.   Breakfast: We were not feeling very hungry and breakfast consisted of sliced oranges and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 10

Breakfast: We like waffles and we have them at least once a week. We have a bunch of different waffle recipes on this website and lately I’ve been making the Buckwheat Waffles. They are simple to make and I love the nutty buckwheat flavor. Gary likes his waffles with syrup. He makes his own, warming…

What Vegans Eat – Day 9

Breakfast: You are not still eating cereal out of a cardboard box, are you? As the artist Tom Lieber said when I interviewed him on my IT’S ALL ABOUT FOOD SHOW,   “How uninvolved do you want to be with your life?”   Why grab for a box, even the “healthy” “natural” ones, when you…

What Vegans Eat – Day 8

Breakfast: This was a major food event. We had our guests, Beth and her son Buddy, from Costa Rica and it was Buddy’s 19th birthday. Since it was Pancake Day we had to have Pancakes topped with fruit compote. And Home Fries. And a French Scramble. We had it all.   Our guests went off…

What Vegans Eat – Day 7

We were expecting guests, my friend Beth and her younger son Buddy. It’s Buddy’s birthday and when I asked him what kind of cake he wanted he asked to make an apple pie. I wanted to make it before they arrived and got started on it before breakfast. I always have a little extra dough…

What Vegans Eat – Day 6

This was a simple eating day after the holiday feasting.   Breakfast: We eat a lot of oatmeal and it’s never the same. This Oatmeal was cooked with pears and dried apricots and topped with leftover Fruit Compote. It was served with sliced oranges and black currant tea   Daily Green Juice: Kale, collards, celery,…
