What Vegans Eat – Day 1688


First Meal: Gary’s sister’s mother-in-law has passed and we made our reservations to head back to California for the funeral. We have a couple of days at home to do our laundry from the last trip, finish some projects on deadline and pack up again. Today we’ll be working on a grant proposal. We also committed to helping out Gary’s sister preparing a funeral program. I started on the program and Gary prepped some Grapefruit. This was a refreshing eye-opener.

After finishing up the financial report for the grant, we had our first meal – leftovers from yesterday’s Taco Tuesday. Today it’s the Wonderful Wednesday bowl with Tempeh Taco Meat, Red Bell Peppers and Zucchini, Sweet Potatoes, Red Lentil Cheesy Sauce, Avocado served on a bed of Arugula. Here’s my bowl.

Gary’s looks even better!

Second Meal: I worked on draft for the program to send to Gary’s sister. Then we took our long walk. Today we picked up a slice of vegan Carrot Cake from Bareburger to bring to our neighbor Joyce in the rehab facility she is staying at. It’s her 93rd birthday today. She was asleep when we got there and resisted waking up. We left her a note with the cake. When we got home I worked on some edits for the program. I needed a treat before working on the grant. I made a frozen soft serve dessert with Peanut Butter, Cocoa Powder, Bananas, Blueberries and Vanilla. I wanted something rich and sweet. This was it.

Tea Time: I brewed a pot of Vanilla Tea. I needed some caffeine to get focused. Since I don’t drink a lot of caffeine, having a cup or two of black tea does the trick.

Third Meal: The grant is done! Hurray! It felt good to do it, reviewing our accomplishments with REAL for the last six months. Often times it feels like we haven’t done anything until we sit down to write a grant or email. Then we realized we’ve done a lot! We each made a repeat of lunch today, more Tempeh Taco Meat, Bell Peppers and Zucchini, Cheesy Red Lentil Sauce served on a bed of Arugula. It was very satisfying.
