What Vegans Eat – Day 1706


First Meal: Pumpkin Bread for breakfast. It’s better on the second day! Today’s tea is Hojicha. It’s flavor is similar to Kukicha. I love it.

Second Meal: Gary and I are both reading The Artist’s Way and doing the tasks in this 12-week program. One thing to do is go on an Artist’s date where you take your inner child out. You are supposed to be alone, doing something fun with yourself. I decided to go on a bike ride. I haven’t been on my bike in a long time. I admit, I am petrified riding in city traffic and that’s part of the problem. The other is getting the bike from the storage room and pumping up the tires. It takes time. But today I was going to take my inner child out for a ride in the park. Gary went for a walk. He came back as I was pumping the tires. He had bags filled with fresh produce from our local Farmers Market. There is one organic vendor from The Garden of Eve Farm out on Long Island. He bought giant heads of Romaine, ripe Tomatoes, Butternut Squash and Onions. He had not walked enough so he joined me as I walked to the park. I was not going to ride in city traffic. When we got to Flushing Meadows Corona Park, I got on my bike with my inner child to ride and Gary took off with his to walk. An hour later we met up and walked home. The ride was wonderful and I can’t wait to do it again. My legs were tired and I was hungry. When we got home, we set out the feast. The Pinto Bean Stew/Soup was reheated. I added some spices to it and thought I would sprinkle some Cocoa on mine for a mole flavor. Gary screamed as I sprinkled, “What are you doing? There’s sugar in that!” Oops. Gary had prepared the jar for sprinkling on some of our hot drinks. I forgot. Fortunately I didn’t sprinkle too much and I couldn’t taste it.

Next up was a fresh, crunchy, muscly Romaine Lettuce salad from the farm with delicious Tomatoes and a Tahini/Pomegranate Vinegar dressing.

We celebrated the finding of ORGANIC Purple Potatoes at Westerly in Manhattan. They are so good.

Treat: We walked to the movie theater to see the Joker. It was sold out. Of course it was, on a Sunday night the day before a holiday. We walked to Bareburger. Gary had a beer and I splurged on Flourless Chocolate Cake with Strawberry Sauce and Coconut Ice Cream.
