What Vegans Eat – Day 1743

First Meal: Yes, this is a great morning. We started with fresh Ruby Red Grapefruits.   Gary made some happy cups of Teeccino topped with Soy Foam and Cocoa Powder.   I slow cooked Steel Cut Oats with Green Apples and Raisins and topped it with Strawberries, Pumpkin Seeds and Bananas. It’s gorgeous.   Second…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1742

First Meal: I looked forward to breakfast knowing we were having my homemade Caraway Seed Bread.   Gary toasted some of the slices and I made Yogurt cups with Raspberries, Bananas, Cacao Nibs, Raisins and Coconut.   I put some Miyoko’s Cultured Vegan Butter and Apricot Butter on mine. So good.   Second Meal: We…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1741

First Meal: Yesterday when we finished the load of Ezekiel bread Gary requested I make the next loaf. So I did, this morning, a four grain, gluten-free seed bread, with Oats, Millet, Corn and Rice.   When it was done we enjoyed some with a hearty Lentil Vegetable Soup.   Homemade Hand Cream: Just like…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1740

First Meal: I will confessed, last nights Manhattans did not go down well. I had not eaten much yesterday and then we drank in the evening. This is not something I am used to. I started to eat a Baked Potato and I couldn’t. What ever I did eat (and drank) came right up. In…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1739

First Meal: One thing I love about Chinese Food are the leftovers that we use to make something different and wonderful. Gary added Cabbage to the Brown Rice Blend and chopped up the remaining dishes from yesterday to create our own version of Crispy Happy Rice, the dish we get at the Vegetarian House in…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1738

First Meal: I love having our homemade Yogurt served in these adorable cermaic yogurt cups. They were Gary’s mom’s and now we get to enjoy them. Our yogurt tastes so good in them, mixed with Bananas, Strawberries, Raisins, Cacao Nibs, Coconut and Flax Seeds.   Snack: It’s that time of the week again, Mother’s Day,…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1737

First Meal: I LOVE LEFTOVERS! Especially today’s offering. The Garbanzo Bean Flour Omelets with a seasoned Spinach Ricotta filling I made two days ago are even better today, warmed up and served with Ketchup. Soup du jour was Carrot Lentil.   Second Meal: The Carrot Lentil Soup was extended and enhanced for dinner with added…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1736

First Meal: After a few days of meal creations, now we are back to simple Carrot Red Lentil Soup. I crave this.   I like serving this soup with Toasted Buckwheat and Walnuts topped with Nutritional Yeast.   Nourished and satisfied, I was ready to interview to fantastic guests on my IT’S ALL ABOUT FOOD…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1735

First Meal: We take turns cooking in our house. Today, I took over the kitchen and made garbanzo bean flour omelets, filled with a Spinach Ricotta mixture. The seasoned Ricotta was leftover from Gary’s amazing Eggplant dish yesterday.   Second Meal: Borscht is back! I love this soup and look forward to making more soon.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1734

First Meal: Steel Cut Oat and Millet Waffles are the best! Have you tried them? I couldn’t decide what to put on them so I had everything! One with homemade Cashew Yogurt and Raspberry/Mango Sauce, the other with Almond Butter.   Second Meal: Gary De Mattei, REAL, co-founder, is the best vegan chef, hands down.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1733

First Meal: Waffles again? YAY! Gary wanted “Cheerios” Waffles which means our Steel Cut Oats and Millet Waffle recipe. He thinks they taste like Cheerios. Cheerios without the glyphosate, because we use organic grains. All the schmears came out: Almond Butter, Peanut Butter, Apricot Butter, Cashew Yogurt and a Raspberry Coulis with chunks of Mango.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1732

First Meal: We learned a couple of days ago of the death of a dear family friend, Steve. We drove to his funeral this morning. After the service, we were joined by my mom and her friends, Phyllis, Eydie and Sid. No matter what the occasion, it’s always the right opportunity to go to the…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1731

First Meal: Today’s breakfast starts with a juicy, tart Grapefruit.   Next, pasta! Pasta for breakfast. Why not? This gluten-free, brown rice pasta by Tinkyada was made a couple of days ago by Gary, served with his Spicy Marinara.   Second Meal: While our dinner was coming together we munched on Carrots and Celery.  …

What Vegans Eat – Day 1730

First Meal: I had an idea. It was not a good one. We call these EPIC FAILURES! I wanted to try making a waffle from cooked Oatmeal. We had some leftover Oatmeal in the refrigerator. I thought it might work like Smashed Baked Potato Waffles. Nope. They did not cook inside and burned slightly on…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1729

Today is election day and I am a poll worker. I got up at 4am to arrive at the poll site by 5am. We typically stay until 10pm. It’s a long day. I wasn’t hungry and made a conscious decision not to bring food with me. I knew I would get breaks and be able…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1728

First Meal: A perfect breakfast! Parfaits. You know that parfait means perfect in French, right. Made with homemade Cashew Yogurt, Blueberries, Raspberries, Coconut, Cacao Nibs, Bananas, all organic. Mm. Served in Waterford crystal makes them even more delicious.   Second Meal: A lovely lunch came together with a fresh Kale Salad served with leftovers, Turnip…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1727

First Meal: Gary treated me to breakfast at home today with a Tofu Vegetable Scramble with my (saved-from-failing) Turnip Cakes on the side.   Second Meal: A fresh Kale Salad was made with a Pomegranate Vinegar Dressing.   Third Meal: Soup again for dinner! This had a Barley Miso Broth with Shiitake Mushrooms, Green Peas,…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1726

First Meal: It’s play day today. We have friends in from Florida that we are seeing for lunch and then my second cousin is in town from Maryland and we will see her and her partner for dinner. Our breakfast was fun. We had the Herbed Okara crackers I had made last night served with…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1725

First Meal: Gary made a special Oatmeal today with Blueberries and an Omega-3 plus sprinkle with Flax Seeds, Cinnamon and Walnuts.   Second Meal: Later in the day I made an “everything in the refrigerator” kind of Vegetable Soup that had cooked Acorn Squash as the featured Vegetable. Squash is great in soup. It gives…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1724

First Meal: BOO! It’s Halloween. Gary and I had struggled for weeks trying to decide what are costumes would be and if we should have a party. In the end we decided not to decide and there’s no party and no costumes. And that’s okay. I had plenty to do in the morning. We had…
