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.
