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 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.

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…

What Vegans Eat – Day 168

Breakfast: I am on a mission to finish some projects that have lingered on my list. And it’s hot and I don’t like to use the air conditioning very much. I am not as hungry in the heat and I am craving the simplest of foods. This morning I ate sliced tomatoes, cauliflower and dipped…

What Vegans Eat – Day 167

Breakfast: I’m just not really hungry lately in the warm weather. I got up and finished the 1/2 pear I saved from the day before and made some green kukitcha tea. I don’t drink the tea hot these days. I wait for it to cool and drink it warm or at room temperature. And sometimes…

What Vegans Eat – Day 162

Breakfast: Just another super hot and humid July day in New York City. I am so grateful to have a terrace and be able to eat most of our meals outdoors! I called this breakfast a Trifle because Gary had prepared it in layers: apples, pears, raisins and cashews, then oats, then more apples, pears,…
