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,…

What Vegans Eat – Day 5

It was Valentine’s Day yesterday, or Vegantine’s Day as we like to call it. What do vegans who like to cook eat on Vegantine’s Day?   Breakfast: For breakfast, I made pancakes. We have a lot of pancake recipes here on the site, and now we have a new one, a pancake recipe for Vegantine’s…

What Vegans Eat – Day 4

Breakfast: We finished up the cornbread that we made the day before and served it with apricot butter. I also had an organic pear. For tea, I had Organic Genmaicha Extra Green Tea. I love this tea not only for its light but complex flavor, but because it is indeed extra green.   Snack/lunch: I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 3

Breakfast: Today started with our favorite Cornbread which we make regularly. We had it with our usual spreads: apricot butter, vegan butter, peanut butter along with fresh orange slices. Today’s tea was Bai Mu Dan, an organic white tea.   The juice from the blueberries stained the white napkin. I had a lot of fun…

What Vegans Eat – Day 2

Another all organic, vegan menu… Breakfast: Oatmeal Waffles, jasmine tea. We eat a lot of waffles and have some great waffle recipes here on the website. Our oatmeal waffle is just like a bowl of oatmeal, but more fun. I’ve been enjoying them plain lately and Gary likes to make his own syrups with agave…

What Vegans Eat – Debut

I have been asked so many times, “what do you eat?” Five years ago I did an IT’S ALL ABOUT FOOD SHOW entitled “A Week Of Eating Vegan” where I kept a journal of what I ate all week and spoke about it on the show. I have received a lot of great feedback on…
