What Vegans Eat – Day 209

What Vegans Eat – Day 207

Breakfast: Sometimes I find when we are planning a big weekend of food I am not focused on the present, or eating in the present. We had a number of big family festivities planned over the Labor Day Weekend. I had a pear for breakfast, a little Bai Mu Dan tea and that was enough.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 204

What Vegans Eat – Day 200

Breakfast: Everything seemed out of sorts since I brought my MacBook Pro into the shop the day before. It’s a 2011 model, the warranty expired and I was nervous about the potential of having to shell out a lot of cash to get it fixed. Fortunately it had a particular video issue that was still…

What Vegans Eat – Day 197

Breakfast: Gary says I am impressionable.

We were getting a GoOrganicNYC delivery today and that cabbage had to be eaten before the new one…
