What Vegans Eat – Day 1079, Travel Edition


Breakfast: I was looking forward to this day! We didn’t have the time, but we were driving up to San Francisco to see the Klimt/Rodin exhibit at the Legion of Honor Museum. I had heard aout it months ago and it was closing in less than a week. Gary packed treats for the ride up: Peanuts, Raisins, Bananas, Apples and Rice Cakes.
Lunch: Klimt’s Beethoven Frieze spoke to me and brought tears to my eyes. Not as intensely as my Adele Bloch-Bauer experience in 2006, (do you know that story?) but there was something being broadcast to me. The exhibit was okay but slim on Klimt. We have seen much more at the Neue Gallery in New York. We also loved the portrait of Gertrud Loew, and I had a feeling like I knew her. A quick search for nearby vegan restaurants landed us at the Nourish Cafe. I had been feeling a little nauseous from smelling the Tuna Salad aroma coming out of the cafe at the museum, but the vegan “Tuna Bowl” sounded good to me at the Nourish Cafe, made with house-made seed and nut “tuna” (Sunflower Seeds, Celery, Almonds, Onions, Tahini, Kelp Flakes), roasted Broccoli and/or Cauliflower, Apples, Tomatoes, Sprouts, Cucumber, Romaine Lettuce and an oil-free Umeboshi Vinaigrette.

Gary had the Bibimbap Bowl with Jasmine Brown Rice, Marinated Tofu (Aminos, Apple Cider Vinegar, Garlic, Tamari Paprika), Avocado, Mixed Greens, Carrots, Cabbage, Red Bell Pepper, Cucumber, Sprouts, Sriracha Miso Dressing.

We’ve been drinking more green juices again. The juice machines were going nonstop while we were there and we got ours, with Spinach, Parsley, Celery, Ginger and Lemon, and no Apple for me.

After rehearsal I wanted a repeat of yesterday’s late night supper. Gary cooked up more Red Lentil Soup, Purple Sweet Potatoes and Quinoa and smashed an Avocado, made a Green Salad with a Peanut Butter and Lemon Dressing, and warmed up some Tortillas.
