What Vegans Eat – Day 11


Yesterday was exceptionally cold here in New York. I had learned the day before that an uncle had died and Gary and I were off to the funeral the next day, this cold day, with temperatures in the single digits.
Breakfast: We were not feeling very hungry and breakfast consisted of sliced oranges and green Kukitcha tea, a Japanese blend made of stems, stalks, and twigs. This tea has a unique flavor that I love. Whenever I hear someone musing that vegetarians eat tree bark, I think of this tea.
After the burial in New Jersey, we headed back home with my parents as we slowly thawed out.
Lunch: We stopped for lunch at the California Pizza Kitchen. I had the Roasted Vegetable Salad without the housemade Dijon balsamic vinaigrette. dressing. It’s what I typically get on the rare occasion I find myself at this restaurant and it’s always satisfying, with warm artichoke hearts, asparagus, eggplant, red and yellow peppers, corn and sun-dried tomatoes served over cool Romaine and avocado.
Dinner: Later for dinner I made socca, a simple chickpea flour crepe and topped it with our homemade marinara sauce, black beans and our homemade vegan mozzarella. The simple flavors were comforting on a cold night and we both went for seconds. My green juice consisted of kale, collards, beets, carrots, celery and lemon.
