What Vegans Eat – Day 524: Special Travel Edition


Breakfast: A breakfast worth repeating: Steel Cuts Oats, Bananas, Dates, Blueberries, Chia Seeds with Earl Grey Tea, served al fresco.
Lunch: I met my friend Nancy from San Francisco in Redwood City, a midway point between each of us. I had not been to Redwood City in a long time. The downtown area is quite lively with lots of restaurants and outdoor seating. We met at Ike’s Lair, a sandwich chain with lots of vegan options but I wasn’t in the mood for bread and meat, even vegan meat so we walked around to get a feel for the neighborhood and find another place. We ended up at the Green Leaf Asian Bistro & Cafe, a fast-food, order at the counter place, where you can order a sandwich, bowl or salad and customize it the way you like it. I like that! Menu items were clearly labeled gluten-free and vegetarian and friendly staff knew what was vegan. I got a great Salad with Grilled Vegetables and Walnut Vinaigrette and Nancy got a Bowl with Rice Noodles and Tofu.
After sitting and chatting a while in front of the gorgeous stately San Mateo County History Museum we went over to Peet’s. I got the Green Macha Latte with Soy Milk and we shared a vegan Oatmeal Cookie. They have vegan treats at Peet’s!
Dinner: Back at the house in Monte Sereno Gary and I joined the family to finish up the Sunday dinner leftovers. I had a Yukon Gold Potato, String Beans, Green Salad, and lots of Edamame. Afterwards, Gary’s nephew Zachary treated us to a quickly made, blended treat of Frozen Berries mixed with Mango Purée and Orange Juice.
Evening: I must not have eaten enough at dinner because I was hungry later. I had made some Millet Maki before dinner, reheating the millet and filling them with Avocado and Tomato. I ate one and saved the rest for tomorrow. I couldn’t resist having my new favorite treat, Peanut Butter and Corn Thins.
