What Vegans Eat – Travel Edition: RAPALLO, Day 11

Ristorante Nettuno

Today, Gary’s cousin Vittorio and his wife Cinzia were picking us up at our hotel and driving us to Genoa! Genoa is the capital of the Italian region of Liguria and the sixth-largest city in Italy. Gary’s brother-in-law decided not to make the trip today, so we waited for Gary’s sister Deb, Vittorio and Cinzia…

What Vegans Eat – Travel Edition: RAPALLO, Day 9

Grapes

September 25, 2022 Rapallo This was a very, very special day. And because there was so much activity and love and excitement, I forgot to take pictures of our very special meal. Scusi! The day started earlier than expected. I was thrilled to have a room with a balcony overlooking the Ligurian Sea. We left…

Snack on the TGV 10:23

September 24, 2022 Paris Just before leaving our hotel we stopped at a Monop’, a small grocery chain that is part of the Monoprix department stores around France. These small grocery stores, along with Carrefour Express are everywhere in Paris. Although I am not certain, I believe they have taken over many of the “mom…

WHAT VEGANS EAT – Travel Edition: PARIS Day 7

Kokuman

September 23, 2022 After another “grace matinée” we got up in the afternoon and walked down the Rue du Faubourg Montmartre in the direction of the Seine. It’s our museum day.   Whether in a museum or painted on a wall on the street, we appreciate art.   It was recommended to not miss the…

What Vegans Eat – Travel Edition: PARIS, Day 6

Le Potager de Charlotte

September 22, 2022 Paris As much as we would have liked to have stayed in our little boutique hotel, the Hotel Residence Quintinie Square, in the 15th arrondissement, I was not able to reserve this place for any more days. When we were checking out we were told they would be renovating soon. We’ll have…

Parc Samuel Paty

September 19, 2022. London. It’s Day 3 of our 25-Day Magical European Tour and finally, I have some food photos to share. September 19th was the day of Queen Elizabeth’s funeral. We did not plan to be in London during this time, nor did we plan to stay in a hotel so near Buckingham Palace…

25-day Magical European Vegan Tour

September 18, 2022 London After interviewing Jenny Linford, the editor of the new Kew Gardens Cookbook, I did not want to miss visiting the Royal Botanical Gardens.

Vegan Swaps!

There are so many wonderful vegan cookbooks available today. Why is it then, I still enjoy taking recipes and making them vegan? It’s something I had to do three decades ago when I went vegan because there were very few vegan cookbooks. Now I just enjoy it. I recently reviewed the book The New Heirloom…

What Vegans Eat at Loon Mountain and Beyond

We got away! We got away!   After 8 months of sheltering in place in NYC, we stepped out of our comfort zone, loaded up the car and drove to Lincoln, NH for a relaxing week in the woods. Since COVID-19 is still very much among us, though at very low rates in New Hampshire,…

C’est si bon! Vegan French Food.

French food. Vegan food. Some may think they are not compatible but I know French and Vegan go trés bien ensemble. French cuisine, especially in the south, includes lots of fresh, colorful fruits and vegetables, along with flavorful herbs. I was in the mood for French food all the way today. Here’s what we had.…

COVID-19 Quarantine Birthday Party

Yesterday was Earth Day and my birthday. I love that my birthday is on Earth Day. This year is unlike any other. The Earth is showing us with the Coronavirus that we cannot take her for granted. When we abuse the Earth and other living species and exploit them, she will fight back and win.…

Passover, Easter and the Pandemic

The What Vegans Eat daily blog officially ended in February but occasionally we’ll come back to share some news about food. We are following the stay inside order during this Corona Virus Pandemic.   For Passover, we spent time over Zoom with family as many did, conducting the traditional Seder. I made Matzohs! Here’s a…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1825

First Meal: I woke up with a craving to bake muffins. Blueberry Muffins. I used to make muffins a lot. When I went to look at some of the muffin recipes we have here I knew I had to start upgrading. This new Blueberry Muffin recipe is better than before, using my own homemade gluten-free…

First Meal: Today’s Oats are topped with Cacao Nibs, Coconut, Apples, Blueberries and Raisins.   Second Meal: The last of the recent leftovers came together in a Tomato Vegetable Stew served with Mashed Potatoes.   Third Meal: It was late and I was hungry. I made a big Kale Salad with Green Onions and Grated…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1823

First Meal: I got up super early for another audition. I was determined to be one of the first on the list so I could get an early appointment and be done quickly. I succeeded. I was one of the first ten in line and the second person to sing for the show I wanted.…
