What Vegans Eat – Day 1001


Breakfast: I spent the night at my parents’ home. A lot of hours passed, helping my mom, checking on my dad and taking care of household activities that my dad usually does. It was about 10:30pm when I finally settled in to do my own work! Plus I had to finish reading the book for my radio interview tomorrow with Ben Hartman. I did not get a lot of sleep. I got up early and made oatmeal. My dad has been sleeping a lot and not eating much. I made enough oatmeal for both of us, with Apples, Raisins and Cinnamon. My mom says she doesn’t like oatmeal but when she saw mine she wanted to try some. She liked it! Of course she did. Oatmeal can be delicious when made properly. I topped mine with frozen Raspberries and Blueberries. Later on in the day when my dad was hungry he had a small bowl.
Lunch: I got home in time to record my radio show. I was looking forward to this one with Dr. Saray Stancic would be talking about her journey with Multiple Sclerosis and learning how to heal with a whole-food plant diet and exercise. Ben Hartman’s book, The Lean Guide to Growing Vegetables was fascinating and he made another great guest. I was tired and hungry and had a long day ahead of me. Gary served me some of his homemade Adzuki Bean Chili. It revived me.
Dinner: After the radio show, I was ravenous. I was also lucky because Gary had prepared a wonderful meal. We started with appetizers – Celery Sticks with a variation of Little Seed Caesar Dressing made with Cashews in addition to Sunflower Seeds, and Black Olives.
The main plate consisted of Mashed Potatoes, Sautéed Collard Greens and Red Cabbage and Tofu Masala. I was amazed at how well the collards and cabbage complimented each other. It was delicious.
After dinner, I was ready to spend the rest of the evening talking about food. It was time for the first class of a new Plant-Powered And Thriving 6-week course with John and Ocean Robbins and me. If you haven’t taken the course I invite you to check it out. I think it’s the best course of its kind!
