What Vegans Eat – Day 1215


Breakfast: After 4 nights sleeping at Mom’s it was good to wake up in my own bed! I wanted to stay there all day. I stayed in bed as long as I could and then got up to start the day with Breakfast Polenta made with Coconut Flakes and Apricots and topped it with Apricot Butter.

Tea: In the afternoon I was off to a Bridal Tea for Lexi, the daughter of one of my oldest friends, Elyse. It was at the King’s Carriage House in Manhattan, a restaurant and tea room. It’s very charming. The tables were crowded with pretty dishes, big pots of Chamomile Mint Tea, English Breakfast Tea and lots of Tea Sandwiches. Our glasses were filled with Champagne. It was a lovely event and we all had a lot of fun. No, none of the small sandwiches offered were vegan. I politely asked the server for something and he brought me a bowl of Berries.

Dinner: After the party we went to the home of Elyse’s brother and sister-in-law. We sat around and chatted for a long time. I was grateful for the Hummus, Guacamole and Cucumbers that were set out.

I dipped into them often with all of these Veggies.

Meanwhile on the west coast, Gary’s been eating well on his own. He wrote to me:
Breakfast and Lunch — You’ve been telling me to go to the Crepes Bistro in Santa Clara (it’s right down the street from where I’m staying in San Jose) so I did. I was happy to see a vegetarian/vegan restaurant packed with people on a Saturday at around noon. There is something extra “lively” about a packed veg restaurant. Replacing the scent of cooked animal flesh in the air is a sense of joy and laughter. I ordered a Strawberry Banana Crepe with Coconut Cream and instead of Nutella, which isn’t vegan, they drizzled a vegan Chocolate Sauce over the crepe. I thought I should balance this decadent brunch with a Green Juice as my beverage. This combination is one I’d do again.

Dinner – I didn’t feel like eating. I picked on some Cashews and a few Figs. At around 10:00pm I felt really hungry so I had a bowl of Raw Oats with Frozen Blueberries, Raisins, and Almond Milk.
