What Vegans Eat – Day 1359


Breakfast: It’s been a long day that started yesterday! We took a red eye flight from San Francisco and landed this morning. After unpacking we sat down for breakfast before taking a long nap. We don’t have a lot of food in the house but we had what we needed for Oatmeal and Raisins, topped with Blueberries.

Lunch: I started soaking some Red Lentils in the morning and cooked them fast when we got up from our nap. I had a small bowl with Chicory Chaga tea.

I don’t know where he found the energy, but Gary walked to the health food grocery store to pick up some Potatoes. Tofu and Kale and a few other items to tide us over until we do a big shopping. I went across the street to a small grocery store and picked up a couple of Pineapples and Avocados. The Avocados were 2 for $1! I have not seen a price like that for a long time. I bought 4 and later wished I had bought them all!

Dinner: Gary made his signature No-Egg Omelette with Kale and a side of Baked Home Fries. I asked if he could make herbed potatoes like the ones we had at The Stanford Inn by the Sea, with Rosemary. He did a really good job

He also made a cheesy sauce with the cooked Red Lentils, blending them with Miso and Nutritional Yeast. It’s exceptional!

Evening: It’s Halloween. We didn’t have a chance to plan any costumes for today and we were too tired to do anything at the last minute. We like to be in costume when the trick or treaters arrive. Tonight we were just ourselves. If we are going to eat sweet treats made from refined ingredients I think they should be organic, non GMO, vegan of course, gluten-free and free of artificial chemicals and colors. That’s why I had ordered candy from the Natural Candy Store. We got a ice assortment from Ocho there were the Chocolate Coconut Mini Bars. From Sjaak’s we got the Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Bites and Chocolate Covered Pumpkin Spice Bites. And from Cocomels there were the Caramels.

You can read the ingredients here.

I got Gary the White Chocolate Skeleton pops along with a few Ghost pops to give to special neighbors.

When the trick or treating was over, we sat down and sipped on shots of Maker’s Mark Bourbon.
