I shared a large pizza with Broccoli rabe, Fire Roasted Peppers, Carmelized Onions and Mushrooms with No Cheese with my…

What Vegans Eat – Day 197

Breakfast: Gary says I am impressionable. While finishing reading Dr. Karin Dina’s book, Raw Food Nutrition Handbook for my radio show later in the day, I was thinking of the 1/3 head of cabbage in the refrigerator. We were getting a GoOrganicNYC delivery today and that cabbage had to be eaten before the new one…

What Vegans Eat – Day 192

Brunch: I had set a pot of chickpeas to soak the night before, rinsed them and started cooking them in the morning. They were done quickly. We had some Chai Tea and enjoyed the quiet of the morning. It was late when we had our first meal, which included what I am calling a Beandae,…

What Vegans Eat – Day 191

Breakfast: We eat a lot of oatmeal. I think of oats as a blank canvas sometimes to add color and texture to. Today’s Oat Art is made with Strawberries, Nectarines, Pecans, Flax Seeds Coconut Milk and Rolled Oats. It’s as delicious as it is beautiful. I had a pot of Kukitcha Tea and Gary had…

What Vegans Eat – Day 190

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. This time I added Pumpkin Seeds, Flax Seeds and Flaked Coconut with Soy Milk and served it with Sliced Oranges and some Kukitcha Tea.   Daily Green Juice: I made my weekly batch of…

What Vegans Eat – Day 185

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 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.…
