What Vegans Eat – Day 1004


Breakfast: Gary made a perfect pot of Oatmeal with Raisins, Apples and Bananas. Sometimes we finish off our bowls with our own additional toppings. I wanted Cacao Nibs and Chia Seeds.
Lunch: It’s the season for soup. We are busy and don’t have time to cook. The soups we make don’t take much time to put together and then we have food for a few days. Gary made a Red Lentil Soup today for lunch.
We also had bowls of steamed grains; a combination of: Organic Brown Basmati Rice, Organic Forbidden Black Rice; Organic Red Rice; and Organic Millet. I like to call this a Grain Sundae with Tahini Dressing as the sauce and Nutritional Yeast as the Sprinkles.
Dinner: Our friend Kezia invited us out for the evening. She didn’t say what the occasion was but we knew it was her birthday. The weather has drastically changed here in NYC and all of a sudden it’s freezing outside. Gary and I dressed for winter but we could have wrapped up a bit more. We just weren’t ready for the below freezing chill. Everyone was to meet at the Art Bar in Greenwich Village. It was packed when we got there and after hanging out for a while our group decided to go somewhere else so we could sit and talk. We had to walk a few blocks in the freezing cold. As soon as we arrived at Sushi East, we had to have some Hot Sake to warm up.
Gary and I were not very hungry. We shared some Edamame and some Avocado Maki.
Later in the evening someone brought out the birthday cake. Gary and I naturally assumed it was a conventional cake (meaning not vegan) and we politely refused to take a piece.
Then we were told it was vegan, from Lifethyme Market, so we then we went a little nutty. We could have cake! Hurray! It was very good too.
Evening: We got home late but we were both hungry and wanted a little Red Lentil Soup. So we had some.
