What Vegans Eat – Day 434


Breakfast: Once again we were out of fresh and frozen fruit. When it seems like there are few ingredients to work with, something wonderful is created. This was a delicious Oatmeal treat with Apricot Butter, Flaked Coconut and Walnuts and topped with Cashew Milk. I also had a pot of Green Tea.
Lunch: The remains from yesterday‘s breakfast G-BOMBS Burrito was rolled up into last of the Socca Crepe.
Daily Green Juice: Kale, Collards, Celery, Carrots, Lime
Dinner: After a long day, which included recording today’s IT’S ALL ABOUT FOOD show, Gary met his cousins and some friends for dinner and I joined them later after my doctor’s appointment at Mt. Sinai in Manhattan. When I finally got to the restaurant everyone was finished eating and getting ready to head to the Cort Theatre— we were all going to see the Broadway show, Bright Star. It was a lovely evening except for a couple of small details: I didn’t get a chance to eat dinner and I did not enjoy the show — at all! I knew at the start of the opening number that it was going to be a long night for me. A friend of mine had seen it a few weeks before and she told me she didn’t like it but she didn’t have a chance to say why. I texted her during intermission to let her know I was seeing the show and that I was not enjoying it. The best part of the show for me was when she texted me back writing, “it gets worse”. I was really hungry so that could’ve altered my mood slightly. Gary and I road the subway home and discussed what we were going to make for our late night supper. I couldn’t wait to get home and eat! Of course, our subway line had late night changes and we ended up getting off at an express station further away from home. Fortunately it was a beautiful night and we enjoyed the walk. Gary kept remarking about how there was actually a “bright star” in the sky we were following home, just like the plot of the show. He said, “I think it’s Mars! No wait…it’s Venus!” And I said, “Nope. It’s a plane landing at JFK.” We laughed and had a great time on our walk. When we finally got home we were so hungry we made a stew of whatever was leftover in the refrigerator – cooked Brown Rice, Silken Tofu, Spicy Marinara and topped it with Guacamole. Maybe it was because we were especially hungry that this dish tasted so good? Every bite was delicious.
