What Vegans Eat – Day 98

Breakfast: I was testing a recipe for Quinoa Breakfast with Cranberries and Pecans. I love quinoa, I love cranberries and I love pecans, but this was not a favorite way for me to combine them. The cranberries, which were organic and fruit juice sweetened, were very TART and overwhelmed the spicy lovely pecans. The quinoa…

What Vegans Eat – Day 96

Breakfast: Most days are the same here at Responsible Eating And Living Headquarters, we don’t differentiate much between weekdays and weekends. But this Saturday felt like a weekend and I was craving savory, stick-to-your-ribs brunch food. So I made it: Vegetable No-Egg Omelettes with Cashew Cheese Sauce, filled with sauteed onions, baby spinach, red peppers…

What Vegans Eat – Day 95

Breakfast: We had scheduled a day off! This is a rare event at Responsible Eating And Living Headquarters.

While I went to pick up the rental car, Gary prepared baked…

What Vegans Eat – Day 94

Breakfast: A busy food day was planned. We were doing some recipe testing and food photography. First recipe was a breakfast cereal made with leftover whole grains. We do this a lot actually, but I was testing someone else’s recipe.   Break: I was not in a rush to get on with the meal planning…

What Vegans Eat – Day 93

Breakfast: I think waffles may be our favorite breakfast. We have them a lot and we are always excited to have them. Here we had oatmeal waffles. They are really just a bowl of oatmeal made into a waffle. We topped them with some fun “schmears” including peanut butter cream, fig butter, blueberry coulis and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 92

What Vegans Eat – Day 91

Breakfast: We get our produce delivery on Tuesdays, so Monday we make food from the produce remaining from the last week.

Breakfast: It was Mother’s Day and we planned to celebrate at a Chinese Restaurant in White Plains, NY. Since we had been out late the night before we got up late and just had some tea before we left for Mother’s Day lunch. Lunch: At the restaurant I had some edamame as an appetizer and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 89

Breakfast: I was hungry this morning, really hungry. I started breakfast with a banana. Then I moved on to the muffins with homemade fig jam. But that was not enough! I made a breakfast wrap with leftovers: baked tofu, guacamole, sautéed peppers and onions. That did it. I was sated.   Lunch: I am glad…

What Vegans Eat – Day 88

Breakfast: As planned, the muffins were already made. We warmed them in the oven and served them with a fresh fruit basket and teas.   However I knew there was a ready-made kale salad in the refrigerator that I had prepared and not eaten the night before. It called me and I followed. Kale and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 87

Breakfast: Making big batches of whatever you plan on making is like giving a gift to yourself in the future when you get to enjoy the what is leftover. We were having a guest stay over, cousin Jared, so we made extra muffins that we could serve the next morning. We made a variation on…

What Vegans Eat – Day 86

Breakfast: I was feeling creative and savory scallion pancakes seemed like a good idea. I used to make them with rice flour but I don’t use rice flour much anymore, since we learned about how it can have high levels of arsenic. I came up with a new (and better) version for scallion pancakes and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 85

It’s always good.   Daily Green Juice: Kale, Collard Greens, Celery, Carrots, Lemon   We are still in celebration mode, unwinding from our successful fundraiser 2 weeks ago along with my birthday.

What Vegans Eat – Catch Up Post! Days 70-83

It’s been 2 weeks since I made a “What Vegans Eat” post. I was on a roll, posting daily for over two months and then things came to a crashing halt. The last few days before our Happy B’Earthday review were intense and there simply were not enough hours in the day for simple things…

What Vegans Eat – Day 69

Breakfast: We’ve turned the apartment into a practice theater to prepare for the Happy B’Earthday Revue. There is little time for anything else now. We are getting low on fresh food, and being without a car, we are making do with what we have, which is really still a lot. There was oatmeal, but no…
