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

Breakfast: It’s corn bread for breakfast once again. 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. We went to Simple Veggie for some of our favorites: Veggie Beef Flat Noodles; Hot…

What Vegans Eat – Day 84

Breakfast: I was summoned to jury duty which meant getting up earlier than I am used to. I grabbed a banana, two Raw Revolution bars and two bottles of green tea.   Dinner: This meal was clean and green! Steamed kale and collard greens with buckwheat.   Daily Green Juice: consisting of kale, collards, celery,…

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…

What Vegans Eat – Day 68

We had a lot to do this day. There was no time for breakfast. It started out with hair appointments, getting ready for our Swingin’ Gourmets performance at the Happy B’Earthday Revue. Gary filled a glass bottle of Bai Mu Dan White Tea to take with me. When we got back we had food to…

What Vegans Eat – Day 67

Breakfast: I was not hungry and I was excited the adventure we had planned for the day. We were off to Manhattan to pick up gift bag donations for our upcoming Happy B’Earthday Revue. I had a cup of Kukitcha Green Tea and a slice of dry, sprouted wheat toast. We were off.   We…

What Vegans Eat – Day 66

We are just a few days away now from Earth Day and the Happy B’Earthday Revue. So much to do! There will not be much food prep in the next few days and it will be interesting to see what we do eat.   Breakfast: Oatmeal is easy and we love it. We had it…

What Vegans Eat – Day 65

Breakfast: It was time for a regular favorite, buckwheat waffles. I eat them plain. Gary likes them with maple or agave syrup and peanut butter. And I made Jasmine tea.   Lunch: I had made millet and red beans 2 days before anticipating making veggie burgers and finally got to it. It was worth the…

What Vegans Eat – Day 64

Before breakfast I had some errands to run. On the way home I passed a 7-11 store. I have never gone in this store but the new sign caught my attention: VEGAN FOOD!   Breakfast: I love savory foods for breakfast and this was a good one: leftover corn cakes, millet and Greens with Thai…

What Vegans Eat – Day 63

Breakfast: We had a polenta bar! Creamy bowls of polenta with your chose of toppings: shredded coconut, chopped apple, pumpkins seeds, flax seeds and brown sugar with Bai Mu Dan white tea.   Daily Green Juice: Kale, Collards, Celery, Carrots & Lime Juice.   Dinner: I made a big batch of millet in the morning…

What Vegans Eat – Day 62

Breakfast: It was a corny day! I made vegetable corn cakes, with a few modifications – using cooked vegetables from the evening before, adding some chile pepper and masala curry powder. I blended some pumpkin seeds with water and dill and made a lovely creamy sauce to top the corn cakes. We buy mostly all…

What Vegans Eat – Day 61

Breakfast: Oatmeal and Genmaicha Green Tea   Lunch: We reheated the remaining black bean stew from the day before.   Dinner: There was leftover brown rice that I reheated, added some apple cider vinegar and agave and made maki with sesame seeds and sweet potatoes. A quick miso soup was made with onions, carrots, shitake…

What Vegans Eat – Day 60

Breakfast: We warmed up the blueberry muffins made the day before and served them with peanut butter and some Genmaicha Tea. There was a little kale salad leftover and I finished it.   Lunch: I was working at my desk and Gary surprised me with a delicious and energizing smoothie made with collards, strawberries, bananas,…

What Vegans Eat – Day 59

Breakfast: I’ve been making muffins for a long time. They are probably the easiest thing to bake and they come together fast. I use to make them with cow’s milk, eggs and oil, adding in wheat germ and bran, thinking that was healthy. A lot has changed since the 1980’s! I learned to veganize muffins…

What Vegans Eat – Day 58

Breakfast: We were putting together our music book for the upcoming Swingin’ Gourmets’ performance at the Happy B’Earthday Revue. There’s a lot of craft involved, cutting music, rearranging specific bars on the paper, whiting out and rewriting words. This required some serious oatmeal. Nothing but oatmeal, stick-to-your-ribs kind of oatmeal, would do and lots of…

What Vegans Eat – Day 57

I wasn’t thinking or was thinking of too many things and forgot to take photos of all the food I ate, so this post is image-limited. Breakfast: We had come to the end of the Quinoa balls. I enjoyed them, cold with Mint Tea and my daily Green Juice. Some thoughts on quinoa: Quinoa is…
