What Vegans Eat – Day 336


Breakfast: One of my favorite breakfasts, cold rolled oats topped with walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, plump blueberries and soy milk. Served with Bai Mu Dan tea.
Dinner: We were invited to Dr. Michael Greger‘s book launch party for his New York Times best-seller How Not To Die at the home of co-author, Gene Stone. The party was expertly organized by Anne Sullivan. There was lots of great food including Beyond Sushi platters, steamed and raw veggies with hummus and salsa, pita wedges and chips, chocolate treats by Fran Costigan and beer and wine. I had a Sierra Nevada.
While happily noshing on tasty morsels Gary and I mingled with Fran Costigan Vegan Pastry Chef, Mark Langley, Jody Rasch, Ann Parkin, Amy Trakinski, David Coman-Hidy, Jon Camp, Jasmin Singer, Mariann Sullivan, Lori Majewski, Nilesh Zacharias, Christine Wong, Christopher Liptrot, Nell Alk, Demetrius Bagley, Gene Baur, John Bartlett, Liz Dee and more. Here are 2 pictures of me and Dr. Michael Greger, the first from about 12 years ago (I am guessing) and the other from this party. A recurring theme here seems to be guacamole!

  1. Hi Caryn,

    Hope you had a wonderful time at the party. I just finished “How Not To Die” and really enjoyed it.

    Great pictures of you both!

    With abundance,


    • I am happy to hear you read the book. What did you learn? Did anything stand out? Do you plan on incorporating what you learned into your life?

      • Oh yes…I love my daily green smoothies and have printed the Daily Dozen to ensure I get them all in.

        My younger (36) sister had breast cancer in 2013 (treated and we thought eradicated) and in September 2015 it metasticized and is now in her spine (responding beautifully to treatment) and I have diabetes.

        Natural healing/eating healthy is critical to our survival, literally. While my sister isn’t vegan or vegetarian, she has cut back and is making healthier choices. I’m hoping when she sees eating this way reverses my diabetes that she’ll embrace vegetarianism at a minimum — all I can do is be there. I used to be vegetarian and stopped with my diagnosis on the advice of my doctor and nutritionist. And quickly went back…my health has been steadily improving ever since.

        My husband is a die hard carnivore and that makes things a bit tough, although he’s seeing me get healthier and that helps as he’s willing to try more foods than before. The more books and studies that I share with them helps open their eyes. Gentle education.

        Long answer to your question. LOL
