What Vegans Eat – Day 132 (Special Travel Edition)

Breakfast: What’s different about our rolled oats breakfast by the pool this morning? Rio decided to join in the fun and take a quick dip!   Lunch: We went for a long walk up around the reservoir on the Los Gatos Creek trail. Fortunately there was a nice cool breeze and it wasn’t sweltering and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 131 (Special Travel Edition)

What Vegans Eat – Day 129 (Special Travel Edition)

Breakfast: As I have mentioned, we are in California for a month, staying in the pool house at Gary’s brother’s home. We have a small kitchen but we are not cooking, except for boiling water for tea. We do make breakfast and a lot of salads but we are dining out more than we ever…

What Vegans Eat – Day 128 (Special Travel Edition)

Everything is…

What Vegans Eat – Day 127 (Special Travel Edition)

Breakfast: The special feature in this morning’s breakfast with rolled oats is mango. I love mango and yet, mango brings up many issues for me, some positive, some not so. Like its connection with nuclear technology and what we have to do to fruit that’s imported. (I discuss these issues in a little more detail…

What Vegans Eat – Day 126 (Special Travel Edition)

Breakfast: I don’t like shopping but occasionally, especially when traveling or on vacation it’s a nice thing to do. The day before we had strolled around Los Gatos and I found a dress (on sale, of course) at J. Crew that called out to me. It was a size “0” which is a bit small.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 125 (Special Travel Edition)

What Vegans Eat – Day 124 (Special Travel Edition)

Breakfast: I love salad for breakfast. Why don’t I do this more often? This salad consisted of baby greens, cherry tomatoes, walnuts, mashed tofu, and avocado tossed with apple cider vinegar. I had some corn tortillas on the side and Kukicha tea. The mashed tofu mixed with the vinegar has the look, texture and taste…

What Vegans Eat – Day 122 (Special Travel Edition)

Breakfast: No oatmeal breakfast today! It’s seeded watermelon. It’s a breakfast, it’s a snack, it’s a dessert. I love it and I love watermelon with seeds.   Lunch: Staying in Monte Sereno we decided to drive south over the hill to Santa Cruz. I love Santa Cruz and have so many varied memories there starting…

  Breakfast: English Breakfast tea with Rolled Oats, Fresh Fruit and Nuts and Soy Milk.   Lunch: I had a lot of work to do. It was so enjoyable, working with my laptop in paradise by the pool. I crunched and chewed on celery stalks followed by grazing a plate of kale leaves, fresh oranges…

What Vegans Eat – Day 118 (Special Travel Edition)

What Vegans Eat – Day 117 (Special Travel Edition)

What Vegans Eat – Day 116 (Special Travel Edition)

Lemon juice…
