What Vegans Eat – Day 1138


Lunch: We got up relatively early for us. We were excited about the day, holding auditions for Playful People Productions’ summer advanced theatre workshop of Into the Woods and we had a lot to do before they began at noon when we start selecting a teen cast and an adult cast. Our two stainless steel thermoses that we had purchased earlier in the year were faithfully waiting for us in the cupboard at the pool house. I made a thermos of mint tea for Gary and black tea for me, to hydrate us during the long day. We brought along Apples and Bananas too.

We had stopped at Whole Foods before the auditions began and I had Burrito Bowls made to order with Jack Fruit, Black Beans, Brown Rice, Guacamole, Salsa, Cilantro, Radishes, Pumpkin Seeds on a bed of Romaine. We wanted to eat as clean as we could. But this choice was not the cleanest option. The beans were cooked with oil and salt and some other ingredients. Who knows what was in the guacamole? It seemed to be the best we could do in the moment.

Dinner: The first round of auditions ended at 5pm. We left the theater at about 6pm and couldn’t get to the Vegetarian House fast enough. But first we picked up Gary’s cousin Nancy to join us. We started with our favorite Heavenly Salad made with Red and Green Cabbage, Soy Protein, Tofu, Onion, Carrot, Fresh Mints tossed in a Vinaigrette and topped with Peanuts.

I ordered the Rainbow, bean curd skin wrapped in seaweed stuffed with a combination of vegetables and mushrooms in a sweet and sour sauce. Normally it’s presented on a long plate, looking like a fish. They were busy and today it came in a square bowl. On any plate, it’s still delicious.

Gary got the Queens, Soy Protein with Garlic and Onions pan fried in a house special sauce. It’s steak and onions, vegan-style.

Nancy went with one of the simpler choices, a stir fry of Broccoli, Tofu, Carrots and Shiitake Mushrooms in a light Mushroom Sauce.
