What Vegans Eat – Day 1229, Travel Edition – Bay Area, CA

Breakfast: We didn’t eat a lot yesterday and didn’t seem to need to. But today, we needed big food. We began with Rolled Oats with Raisins, Walnuts, Bananas and Soy Milk. It’s quick and good.   Tea Break: It was time to hit all the favorite hot spots. We had tea at Roy’s Station. I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1228, Travel Edition – Bay Area, CA

Breakfast: Every day should begin with Teeccino with Soy Foam, made by Gary. It’s the best. What a treat, especially when served with Steel Cut Oats topped with Almond Ricotta. This is the good life.   Lunch: It’s a dream come true. Gary and I went to the Crepe Bistro together. We had both been…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1226, Travel Edition – Bay Area, CA

Breakfast: Why am I so hungry?? I wanted to sleep in but the sunlight and my hunger pangs would not let me. While Gary prepared breakfast, I ate Peanuts.   I am being spoiled today. I packed Gary’s frother and he made Teeccino with Soy Foam. I’ve missed it!   Next up was a hearty…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1225

Breakfast: Travel Day is here! I am flying tonight to San Jose, CA. But there are a few things that need to happen before I go, like pre-record my radio show. First, a hearty breakfast that will keep me for many hours. I made Breakfast Polenta, adding in a few extra items like Cinnamon, Turmeric,…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1224

Breakfast: I’m back at mom’s this morning to see what wrong with her dishwasher that is not working. I know she’s happy when I eat at her place so I put off eating breakfast until after I arrived. I made Steel Cut Oats with Banana and Raisins and lots of Cinnamon.   Mom had a…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1223

Breakfast: I am winding down on my “clear-out-the-refrigerator-and-pantry project” with another day to go. I had my new favorite Mushroom Ginger Congee leftovers and ate out on the terrace.   That wasn’t quite enough. Or maybe I just new there were two ready-made Steel Cut Oat and Millet Waffles waiting for me. I had them,…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1222

Breakfast: Just because I am by myself does not mean I can’t have waffles! I made Steel Cut Oats and Millet Waffles, my latest waffle recipe made from whole grains, not flour! I topped them with Apricot Butter. I tried to make Soy Milk Foam for my tea but it wasn’t as good as when…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1221

Breakfast: Today’s breakfast was quick. I grabbed an Apple and went to get my hair cut, really short! It’s almost summer and I will be ready.   Lunch: I made a colorful Salad with Greens, Raspberries, Mulberries (picked on my walk in the park with Janet the other day – thanks Janet!), Flax Seed, Nutritional…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1220

Breakfast: I got to bed late and in the morning I tried to sleep in but couldn’t. I got up and made some tea. I noticed that I did not feel anything, no headache, no fatigue. I felt good. And I had drank a lot of wine at Blossom on Columbus for the wine-tasting event…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1219

Breakfast: Janet and I were meeting for a walk in the park, Forest Park. I got up early (for me) and brewed some Green Tea and drank some and brought a bottle along with me for the walk.   Lunch: The walk from from my apartment to the park was about 45 minutes. Then we…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1218

Breakfast: It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood and it’s my plan to spend a lot of time enjoying it. I had breakfast on the terrace: Grapefruit Slices, Steel Cut Oats with Blueberries, Coconut, Raisins and Soy Milk and Oolong Tea.   Lunch: Yesterday’s herbed Whole Grain Blend was served on a bed of Greens…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1217

Breakfast: It’s a good morning. Although I am running around to get things done before leaving to go to mom’s house to help her with her food shopping, I breathe in. It’s a good morning. The weather is lovely, the air is fresh and I feel good. I wanted to exercise but feeling cramped for…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1216

Breakfast: I didn’t eat the Romaine Lettuce I bought to eat two days ago. I was looking forward to it in a big salad today for breakfast! I had defrosted the Red Pepper Turmeric Dressing we had created for the Food Revolution Summit. It was a gift from me in the past to me in…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1215

Breakfast: After 4 nights sleeping at Mom’s it was good to wake up in my own bed! I wanted to stay there all day. I stayed in bed as long as I could and then got up to start the day with Breakfast Polenta made with Coconut Flakes and Apricots and topped it with Apricot…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1214

Breakfast: Today was a rejuvenation day for Caryn. I needed one badly. I was visiting my friend Nancy at her Fire Island beach house. She was on vacation from work and spending a couple of weeks there. I finished up the Steel Cut Oats cereal I made yesterday, renewing it with some Almond Milk.  …

What Vegans Eat – Day 1213

Breakfast: It’s another day at Mom’s checking off the tasks of things I plan to do for her. Today I take the car in for service. Fortunately the Toyota place has a nice lobby with WiFi that will work as my mobile office. Not knowing how long it would be I made a big pot…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1212

Breakfast: I am still at mom’s house. I got up super early to be ready for the charity that was scheduled to pick up all the boxes I packed of my dad’s clothes. I thought they were supposed to arrive at 7am. I ate Strawberries while waiting.   A little later, I had my new…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1211

Breakfast: This is my new favorite breakfast, Spaghetti Squash with Tomato Sauce. I baked the squash at my mom’s house a few days ago and was still there to enjoy it. It’s easy to warm it up one serving with a little sauce.   Mom liked it too, especially with her favorite Victoria’s Tomato Sauce.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1210

Breakfast: I was at mom’s house with a mission. My plan was to clear our my father’s closets, packing all of his clothes to give to charity. He died six months ago and this seemed like the right time. Fortuitously, mom’s friends had invited her out to lunch. This gave me time to do the…
