What Vegans Eat – Day 257


Breakfast: We arrived in Lewisburg, PA, my alma mater and met with my thesis advisor and old friend, Dr. Pommersheim who is now retired. I had searched online and was excited to find a place in town that served tofu scramble. Yes the world is changing. It’s call Cherry Alley Café. It just happened to be Homecoming weekend and the restaurant staff was a bit overwhelmed with the crowd. I am sorry to say the tofu scramble was terrible! The tofu was mashed and seasoned and breaded somehow beyond recognition and then soaked in oil. Happily they did have soy milk and we lingered there a while chatting and drinking tea.
Lunch: We were invited to a vegan, homemade lunch, a rare treat. Gary Steiner is Professor of Philosophy at Bucknell and I met him a few years ago when I interviewed him on IT’S ALL ABOUT FOOD. He’s vegan!! A vegan professor at Bucknell. Yeow! I was so excited to find that out. I’ve enjoyed reading his articles and books on animal rights. His wife, Paula Davis is an Associate Professor of Theatre & Dance at Buckenll and the Department Chair. We sat downs in their sun room for some nut cheese and crackers, featuring Aged English Smoked Farmhouse from Miyoko’s Creamery. We sat down to a lovely lunch. Our hosts had made Eggplant Parmesan using a recipe from Chloe’s Vegan Italian Kitchen and No Knead Bread from Mark Bittman.
For dessert with had sweet, crunchy, cool, organic fresh grapes. Thank you Paula and Gary!! The food and conversation were outstanding.
Daily Green Juice: I took another frozen green juice out of the cooler and let it defrost. I sipped it on the way home: Kale, Collards, Carrots, Lime, Lemon
Dinner: We had a long ride ahead and we finished up the remaining carrots with peanut butter, along with some apples.
