What Vegans Eat – Day 182


Breakfast: Haste makes… a dozen waffles! I was thinking of too many things when I started to make my favorite Buckwheat Waffles for breakfast. It’s an easy recipe and I have made it many times. In my haste, I used 1 Tablespoon of baking powder and the recipe calls for 1 teaspoon. This became very obvious when I added the water to dry ingredients and the batter was much stiffer than it should be. I realized this right away. There was only one way to fix it. Since I added enough baking powder for three batches, I tripled the recipe by adding more of all the other ingredients. Instead of four waffles I made a dozen. I ate two with a strawberry coulis, some fresh orange slices and Jasmine tea while reading The Trap by Robin Lamont, who I would be interviewing the next day. Now there are ten waffles in the freezer ready to be enjoyed another time, perhaps when Gary comes home next week!
Daily Green Juice:Kale, Collards, Celery, Carrots, Lemon, Ginger.
Dinner: After reading a BMJ news item about spicy food promoting longevity I added more than double the amount of Marito Chipotle that I usually use in my split pea soup. When I first tasted the soup broth I nearly choked because it was so spicy hot. I probably didn’t stir it well enough. I let it cook and the end result was very good, not too spicy. Shall I call it Longevity Soup? I had two bowls.
A little later I ate one half of an avocado, just scooping it out of it’s skin with a spoon, like a pudding. It’s a favorite treat that I used to do regularly when I was eating an all raw diet. Now I only do it occasionally (too much fat perhaps?) and I enjoyed every bit of it. Afterwards I sipped on a lovely cup of Teeccino.
