What Vegans Eat – Day 538: Special Travel Edition


Breakfast: Sweet! Fresh fruit for breakfast. First I grabbed the Sharlyn melon, cut it in half and scooped out the seeds. But then I remembered we had some really ripe mangoes. I peeled and cut one up and filled the melon half with it.
Lunch: As we worked feverishly on preparing for Gary’s play reading to take place in a week I was so hungry. Gary reheated the remaining Stuffed Zucchini in a broth made from deglazing the pan I had made the Tomates Provençal in, along with some extra lemon juice.
Daily Green Juice: I made green juice! I have been drinking green juice almost every day for about ten years, since my ovarian cancer diagnosis. Since we have been away from home since mid-May, I have not been able to make green juice until today. Gary had purchased an inexpensive juicer back in 2007 when I first came to visit him in San Jose. He keeps it now at his dad’s house. He brought it over to his brother’s house where we are house sitting. I had already purchased my “juice materials” at the Staff of Life a few days before. I made enough for seven days, freezing daily portions in plastic containers. You know I prefer storing food in glass, but this is what was available to me and I am not complaining! This was the best green juice I ever had, made with Lacinato Kale, Red Kale, Celery, Cucumbers and lots of fresh Lemon Juice from Gary’s cousin Nancy’s tree.
Dinner: The Italian found the kitchen and made Quinoa Primavera, which was simply a freshly made sauce of Tomatoes, Zucchini, Onions and Garlic, served with Quinoa.
Next he served the salad – gorgeous, muscly Romaine Lettuce, Avocados and Tomatoes with Seed Caesar Dressing.
Evening: Back to work making sound effects for Gary’s reading, I treated myself to some Trader Joe’s Black Cherry Soy Creamy.
