What Vegans Eat – Day 1214


Breakfast: Today was a rejuvenation day for Caryn. I needed one badly. I was visiting my friend Nancy at her Fire Island beach house. She was on vacation from work and spending a couple of weeks there. I finished up the Steel Cut Oats cereal I made yesterday, renewing it with some Almond Milk.

Mom served me some fresh Strawberries.

Snacks: I was taking a ferry to Davis Park on Fire Island. In preparation, I cooked 4 Purple Sweet Potatoes (PSP) and picked up a head of Romaine, an Avocado and two Mangoes. I ate two PSPs on the ferry ride over. Later at the beach house I refreshed with a juicy Mango.
Dinner: Yes, I was rejuvenated but not for long. Mom was having cell phone troubles, the fourth time in as many weeks, and I drove over there before going home. I solved the problem and was on my way. I was dreaming of dinner. I ate late but it was worth it. I made a Romaine Lettuce Salad with Avocado and Balsamic Vinegar. For the second course, I made a Vegetable Brown Rice Pasta with fresh Garlic, Mushrooms, Spinach, and Tempeh.

Wait, but what about Gary, you ask? What is he eating? Gary checked in with me from California. For breakfast he had cold Raw Oats with chopped Dates and Almond Milk. For lunch he had his favorite meal of raisins and peanuts! For dinner he began with dessert. He went to the new film Avengers: Infinity Wars went over to the nearby Pressed Juicery for a small Freeze. They had new flavors and he tried them: Mango Turmeric and Coconut Cream. As soon as he told me, I thought that I would make some of my own at home in the next few days.

After the film he made a salad of Mixed Greens, Roma Tomatoes, half an Avocado, and a box of Garbanzo Beans and tossed it with a creamy (and quick) Cashew Yogurt and Dijon Mustard, Balsamic Dressing which also went great with his side of Yukon Gold Potatoes.
Here is his dressing recipe:

Quick Creamy and Cheesy Yogurt Dijon Balsamic Dressing

1/2 cup Forager’s cashew yogurt
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
3 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste (optional)

Whisk it up!
