What Vegans Eat – Day 229


Breakfast: Just tea for me please – Earl Gray this time. I was not hungry for breakfast. I don’t have a scheduled routine every day and normally I get to exercise later rather than earlier. Today I started my yoga practice in the morning. It was delicious! I had a hair appointment and when I came home I was starving! As I walked home I started to rehearse in my mind what I was going to prepared to eat. Gary left me some oatmeal that he had made for breakfast. I gobbled it up with some more tea.
Daily Green Juice: Kale, Celery, Carrots, Broccoli, Lemon, Ginger
Dinner: I prepared French Herbed No-Egg Omelettes but this time I filled them with sautéed leeks. I made a mushroom gravy combining a tablespoon of Porcini mushroom powder, 2 teaspoons of potato starch, 1 cup of water and a tablespoon of nutritional yeast and cooking it slowly over medium heat until it thickened.
We had three large, long stunning leeks. I chopped them all, including the more fibrous green parts and dry sautéed them in a large stock pot. I used about a third of them for the omelette and then made a vegetable soup with the rest. It was simple, with carrots and celery, dried dill and water. That’s all. The sautéed leeks have such a lovely sweet flavor, you don’t need much else.
Then I made Matzo Balls to put in the soup. It’s silly to call them Matzo Balls, because they are not made with matzoh meal, a wheat product. Shall we make Quinoa Balls a new tradition?
Evening: Maybe not the best thing to have late at night unless you need to stay awake. We craved the Green Super Power Smoothie and looked forward to having them for a third day in a row. It was late when we began sipping them, but having lots to do we just worked long into the night. Afterwards we had mint tea.
