What Vegans Eat – Day 243


Breakfast: The fall weather has been fabulous. We ate out on the terrace and I made our classic cooked oatmeal with apples, cinnamon, figs, bananas, coconut and flax seeds. Autumn and Oatmeal in New York… with English Breakfast Tea.
Snack: We live in Queens and we don’t own a car. This is on purpose! There was an item we needed to buy and couldn’t wait for it to be shipped so we decided to walk to the store and pick it up. The store was 3.5 miles away. We walked there and back. Walking through Queens is like traveling around the world, only we did it in two hours! We were invited to a dinner party so we weren’t planning to sit down for a meal at home. But after the walk we were hungry and thirsty. I had some ice tea and sampled the Lemon Kale bites from Zippy’s. As I mentioned yesterday, I’ll be talking to the owner of this new snack food on my next It’s All About Food show. I’ll let you know what I think of these snacks on Tuesday’s program. Gary went for the banana.
Dinner: We were invited to a birthday party at Buddha Bodai, a vegan Chinese Restaurant. We’ve been to the older restaurant on Mott Street in Manhattan but this event was at the new restaurant on Mulberry Street. We were excited to try it. The party was to be from 5-9pm. When we got there everyone was leaving! Apparently we didn’t get the message that the party time had been changed to 1-4pm! We said hi and bye to everyone and decided to stay and enjoy a quiet dinner. This way we got to choose our favorites! I ordered the Duck Noodle Soup. The “duck” is made from marinated bean curd skin. I love this dish and the bean curd skin is addicting!
Gary ordered his old Buddha Bodai favorite, General Tso’s Chicken.
It was at the Buddha Bodai Restaurant in Flushing that I first discovered and fell in love with the Stir Fried Chinese Greens. Here we ordered the Stir Fried Watercress. They were almost all gone before I remembered to take a picture.
Evening: When we got home we both went for the bananas for a sweet dessert.
