What Vegans Eat – Day 1434


First Meal: I am feeling very hungry. There’s leftover salad from yesterday with Greens, Raspberries, Onions, Celery and Balsamic Tahini Dressing. We purchased some organic Quinoa a few weeks ago. When I had cooked it, it tasted rancid so we dumped it. I opened the second package hoping it was better and it wasn’t. I dumped it to. Do you know what rancid grains taste like? I have been served rancid grains at people’s homes and occasionally in restaurants so I have the feeling some people don’t know. Nuts, seeds, grains and flours should be refrigerated! Or kept in the freezer. I can’t stress this enough. Some say to store grains in a cool, dry place. Well that’s okay if the place is really, really cool.

Since I didn’t eat the Quinoa, I had to have something else. Frozen Steel Cut Oats and Millet Waffles to the rescue. I am grateful to me for making a double batch just before Gary left and freezing the extras. I mashed a Banana on top along with some Raspberries. Eating this good feels sinful but it’s not! It’s nutritious and delicious.

Second Meal: I am feeling hungry but I know I will be eating a lot later for dinner. I grabbed an Apple.
Third Meal: I met my old friend Lawrence for dinner. We agreed to meet a JaJaJa Mexican Restaurant. I had heard it was good and it’s GREAT! The menu is all-vegan and very creative. We shared the Nachos with their Chorizo, fermented Black Beans, Turmeric-nut Queso Fundito, spicy Vegetable Relish, Sour Cream. I was stuffed but had already ordered a main dish.

My main was the Tumeric Cauliflower Rice Bowl with fermented Black Beans, Guacamole, Red and Yellow Peppers, Salsa and Sour Cream. It was delicious, but it was served on a plate, not a bowl? Someone help me out here. I took more than half home.

Lawrence had the Verde Enchiladas with Green Tomato, Serrano Pepper, Palm Carnitas, Coconut Queso, Sour Cream and Spanish Rice. He took a lot of his dish home too.

I really didn’t want to, but we decided to split a dessert. We got the Coconut Cake with Coconut Whipped Cream., and the cake was made with raw young coconut. I can’t begin to tell you how good it was.
