What Vegans Eat – Day 1713

First Meal: Another day, a different waffle. Today I made the Steel Cut Oats and Millet Waffles. We are nuts over the Rawmio Hazlenut Spread. I put in on my waffles, one with Raspberry Coulis and the other with smashed Bananas.   Second Meal: Gary’s taking another go at his squash-based cheese sauce to perfect…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1712

First Meal: It’s the weekend, a good excuse for Fruity Corn Waffles. We have them already made so there’s another reason. Gary made a beautiful bowl of Raspberry Pear Coulis and brought out the Rawmio Hazelnut Spread and some Miyoko’s Cultured Vegan Butter.   Second Meal: We go on a walk almost everyday. The usual…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1711

First Meal: The last of the Pinto Bean Soup is mine. I am having it for breakfast. It is good. Then it’s off to mom’s house for my weekly visit. I didn’t have anything planned to do for her. I was thinking it would be a relaxing visit. I took my time and did some…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1710

First Meal: We couldn’t wait to try the RawMio Halzelnut Spread. I made Fruity Corn Waffles to try the spread with along with Apricot Butter. This is so decadent! RawMio has coconut sugar in it. When we finish this jar (which will be soon because it’s too good) I will try to make my own…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1709

First Meal: I wanted to make Corn Pancakes. I wanted them to be thick and fluffy like at Dharma’s in Santa Cruz. I took the time to whip the Aquafaba, but it collapsed when I mixed it in the batter. I have to review some pancake recipes with aquafaba to learn what tricks are used.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1708

First Meal: We didn’t eat a lot yesterday but we did eat late. Intermittent fasting is when you wait 12-16 hours after your last meal of the day before you eat again the next day. We ate at 11pm last night, went to sleep late and got up late. Then we took a long walk.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1707

First Meal: If there’s a bean soup in the house, there’s a good chance I will have some for breakfast. That’s what I did with the Pinto Bean Stew, I warmed some up for breakfast.   Second Meal: Keeping things easy, I had more of the same later on for a late lunch, along with…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1706

First Meal: Pumpkin Bread for breakfast. It’s better on the second day! Today’s tea is Hojicha. It’s flavor is similar to Kukicha. I love it.   Second Meal: Gary and I are both reading The Artist’s Way and doing the tasks in this 12-week program. One thing to do is go on an Artist’s date…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1705

First Meal: Before going to sleep last night, Gary was texting with his cousin and Pumpkin Bread came up. Nancy was going to make some muffins in a day or two. Gary told me he wanted Pumpkin Bread. I told him I would make it in the morning and I did! It was simple. We…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1704

Tea: Gary got up super early to go into Manhattan for an audition. He left me some freshly made Oatmeal and Chai Tea. I had the tea and skipped the Oats. I wasn’t hungry.   First Meal: I got myself ready and took the car to Toyota for some needed service. Then I went to…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1703

First Meal: It’s just another day here at Responsible Eating And Living headquarters. We started we classic Oatmeal, with Raisins and Apples. After I shot the photo, I piled on Flax Seeds and Coconut Flakes on top of my bowl.   Second Meal: Towards the end of our long walk when the need for fuel…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1702

First Meal: I am recovering from my jet lag and fatigue. I was motivated to do a little more today and that included making brunch. While Gary slept in I made a big Kale Salad with Onions, Carrots, Celery, Figs, Apples and a Pomegranate Vinegar and Pumpkin Seed Dressing. Sound good? It was!   Simultaneously…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1701

First Meal: This morning we had plans to meet Gary’s cousin Lou and his wife Amy for brunch. They live in Sausalito and come to NY frequently. Amy, a new vegan, wanted to meet at Peace Foods. We are still not on the NY time zone and waking up at 9am was brutal. We got…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1700

First Meal: We are not ready for the New York time zone. We got up really, really late. I was going into the Progressive Radio Network studio today to pre-record an upcoming show with Joyce Friedman and David Karopkin. Gary planned on joining me and we thought we might do something afterwards. We managed to…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1699

We arrived home from California early this morning on a red eye. It’s going to be a long day. We drank a little tea and took a long nap. I wanted to visit my mom today since I haven’t seen her in a week. I got up at about 1pm and dragged myself out of…
