I mixed some ginger powder in with my tea for a Jasmine Ginger Tea.   Lunch: Half of the Stuffed Cabbage I made yesterday went into the freezer and I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 187

I ate dinner out two days in a row and that’s a lot for me. I practically jumped out of bed this morning and started to cook. I spent the next few hours in the kitchen making whatever came to mind in the moment. I am not sure what inspired me but in the end…

What Vegans Eat – Day 186

Breakfast: It just Soaked Oats, okay? Nothing exotic or creative, just something nourishing that I enjoy eating, especially in the morning.

What Vegans Eat – Day 184

Breakfast: Soaked Rolled Oats with Dried Figs, Coconut Flakes, Flax Seeds, Blueberries and Soy Milk for breakfast with chilled Russian Caravan Tea. I wrote about the tea the other day. It wasn’t so bad hot but it was absolutely awful chilled! I don’t recommend it at all. Drinking it cold brought out that asphalt flavor.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 183

Breakfast: I had made some plain polenta a day or two before. I took what was left and reheated it in a small saucepan with a little water, the strawberry coulis I had made for my waffles and sprinked in some coconut flakes and flax seeds. I broke up some pecans and added them on…

What Vegans Eat – Day 182

Breakfast: Haste makes… a dozen waffles! I was thinking of too many things when I started to make my favorite Buckwheat Waffles for breakfast. It’s an easy recipe and I have made it many times. In my haste, I used 1 Tablespoon of baking powder and the recipe calls for 1 teaspoon. This became very…

What Vegans Eat – Day 181

Breakfast: Catching up on my oatmeal intake with Rolled Oats, Coconut, Blueberries, Flax Seeds and Soy Milk with a cup of Russian Caravan Tea.

What Vegans Eat – Day 179

Breakfast: The day began with some fresh papaya that I had cut up the day before. Papaya is one of my favorite fruits, not to sweet, and starchy and substantial. It fills you up. I don’t eat them often because they are not locally grown, but I love them. I had some iced Genmaicha Tea.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 176

Breakfast: With 2 leftover Buckwheat Waffles I warmed them up in the toaster.

What Vegans Eat – Day 175

Breakfast: I don’t want to cook anything in the heat and I definitely don’t want to turn on the oven. Then I remembered the waffle iron and went to making Buckwheat Waffles. Being out of all-purpose gluten-free flour which I typically mix with buckwheat flour for this recipe, I substituted sorghum flour and the results…

What Vegans Eat – Day 172

Breakfast: Heat and humidity dictate what I want to eat. I want food that is hydrating, cool, crunchy. This morning I had the remaining collards I had steamed and chilled earlier in the week.

And you can…

What Vegans Eat – Day 169

I was getting our GoOrganicNYC weekly delivery today. I like to make sure all the fresh produce from the previous week is eaten before getting a new delivery. Since Gary left a few days before I haven’t been able to finish everything we purchased last week. There were two big heads of collards and lots…
