What Vegans Eat – Day 436


Breakfast: I was up late the night before. I had slept late yesterday and as a result I was not tired when I normally go to sleep. Plus I had a lot of things to finish. It was about midnight when I was ready to settle in and relax, but not sleep. We watched Jane Eyre on Netflix and I didn’t get to sleep untl about 2:30am. Coincidentally, I discovered this morning that the author of the novel Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë was born on this day, 200 years ago! When I awoke I was still off of my daily rhythm and wasn’t hungry. Since Gary’s throat has been a little scratchy I made Hibiscus Ginger tea.
We needed Super Power Smoothies! This one had 2 packed cups of kale, 1 cup of unsweetened soy milk, 1 cup of blueberries, 1 cup of strawberries, 1 banana, 1 orange, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons of flax seeds and three special immune system boosting ingredients: 1 cup of green tea, 3/4 teaspoon turmeric powder and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. It woke us right up!
We finished up the dishes we will be bringing to the Passover Sedar tomorrow: Matzo Ball Soup, the Vegan Gefilte Fish and the Flourless Chocolate Cake.
Daily Green Juice: Kale, Collards, Celery, Carrots.
Dinner: I got the results of my annual blood test. Everything was good. That inspired me to continue with the program of eating healthy, immune system boosting foods. I made a quick soup using dried shiitake mushrooms and boiled water, adding to it turmeric and black pepper and a little chickpea miso. It was spectacular in flavor and texture and full of powerful nutrients.
We had a simple salad of Romaine Lettuce, Tahini Dressing and Avocado and topped it with Quinoa Balls that we made for Passover.
Last but not least we had Forbidden Nutty Rice. It’s a great recipe and I don’t know why we don’t make it more often.

    • Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This is a favorite recipe of mine using heirloom Forbidden Black Rice, heirloom Bhutan Red Rice, organic apricots, organic almonds and organic spices. The beauty for me is in the rich flavors and the healthy nutrients. Some people look at a beef burger or a chicken breast and think they look appetizing – I see exploitation, pain, suffering, degradation of the planet, and the cause of cancer and other chronic diseases. It’s all a matter of perspective.
