What Vegans Eat – Day 409


Breakfast: One of our favorite breakfasts is as beautiful as it is delicious. We made Buckwheat Waffles and served them with Peanut Butter, Apricot Butter and Prune Butter. If you haven’t checked out our fruit butter recipes, I highly recommend that you do. The ingredients are quite complex. The Apricot Butter is made with dried organic apricots and water. The Prune Butter is made with dried organic prunes and water. There is nothing better. The lovely rose colored beverage is Hibiscus tea with hibiscus from my friend Beth’s farm in Costa Rica.
Daily Green Juice: Kale, Collards, Celery, Carrots, Lemon, Lime
Dinner: After my morning meditation I wanted to focus on healing. My cough has been going on for too long. I learned a technique when going through my cancer treatment back in 2007 that I discovered was very helpful. I spoke to my body. Your body knows everything about you. The question is, what do you want to know and are you courageous enough to hear the response? I asked my body what it needed to get well and heal from the cough that began after my flu and fever a few weeks before. The answer was quick – pineapple, papaya, kiwi and basil. I’ve learned not to judge or question, just listen. When Gary and I were out earlier in the day we picked up these essential items. Once home, I started preparing my healing meal. I made this stunning fruit salad.
Then I made a simple Chickpea Miso soup with Shiitake Mushrooms, Soft Tofu, and Wakame Sea Vegetable.
Along with Brown Rice I made this Eggplant in Plum Sauce recipe, omitting the Tofu and adding in Black Beans and fresh Basil. My body was right! These foods made me feel better.
Evening: There were leftover Baked Fries in the refrigerator calling me. Gary reheated them so they were nice and crispy and we had them with Ketchup. I don’t eat ketchup very often and it was a delightful treat.
Getting in the Easter weekend mood, we opened up a bag of Pascha Chocolate chips and nibbled on a few with Almond Rooibos Tea.
