What Vegans Eat – Day 1358


Breakfast: Tonight we are on a red eye flight back home to New York. This morning we got a late start. It’s nice to take your time. We have very little food left and Gary made a simple Oatmeal with Raisins. We are out of everything else. Then we were ready for a long walk. We started in Monte Sereno, where we are staying, and took the back way to Downtown Los Gatos, and then walked to entrance of the Los Gatos Creek Trail, and took the trail all the way up to Lexington Reservoir and back to Monte Sereno. It was about a ninety minute walk. Fabulous.

Lunch: We walked, we cleaned up, we packed. With the car loaded up we said our goodbyes and were on our way. We chose to eat at the Veggie Grill at Santana Row. The Vegetarian House is closed on Tuesdays so that was not an option. I selected the All Hail Kale Salad and topped it with the vegan Crab Cake. I don’t know what’s in it, I just know it’s vegan and I like it. It’s a treat.

Gary chose the Buffalo Bomber, crispy Vegan Chickin’ tossed with Spicy Buffalo Sauce, Tomato, Red Onion, Lettuce, creamy Ranch Dressing and a Wheat Roll.

While we were ordering we realized we were standing next to two of the people who work at The Vegetarian House. It’s their day off and they were having a lunch meeting here with a few other staff members. How cute is that? It was fun to see them as regular people buying lunch!
For some reason we are rarely satisfied with one dish at the Veggie Grill. I was ravenous. We had some time before driving up to the airport for our red eye flight. We just ate lunch and now we’d have dinner. Gary ordered the Caesar Salad.

I chose my favorite Quinoa + Veg Burger with the House-made Blend of Organic Quinoa + Kale + Mushrooms, ‘Cheese’, House-pickled Onions, Arugula, Veg Mayo, drizzled Cilantro Pesto, Brioche Bun.

Now we were stuffed and ready to fly.
Evening: Once on the plane, we were both very thirsty. Yup, restaurant food is salty. We drank plenty of water and treated ourselves to Club Soda with Orange Juice too.
