What Vegans Eat – Day 626: Special Travel Edition


Breakfast: Did you ever wonder why some oatmeal is creamy and some it chewier and chunky? If you heat up the oats and water together you’ll get a creamy cereal. If you boil the water then add the rolled oats, the result will be chewy. Normally I cook everything all at once because it is easier. This time Gary boiled the water first and the result was a gooey, chewy, yummy breakfast, with Raisins, Apples, Walnuts and Almonds.
Daily Green Juice: After a long walk around Lauder-By-The-Sea, our last for this trip we headed over to Dr. Juice for the Green IV again with Kale, Celery, Cucumbers and Ginger.
Lunch: Next we grabbed some lunch at a little place called Keese’s Simply Delcious, a Middle Eastern restaurant that advertized falafel on their marquis. After reviewing the big menu, noticing items marked “veggie” and grilling the server to make sure there were vegan selections we sat down at one of the outdoor tables. Gary ordered the hummus with pita bread. He got this gorgeous, big plate of homemade hummus. This was GOOD hummus.
I got the Veggie Pita with grilled Mushrooms, Onions, Bell Peppers, Broccoli, Tomatoes, Hummus and Eggplant Salad. It was a fabulous sandwich. The server was very conscientious, making sure what we ordered was vegan.
Dinner: We had a date planned with my sister and brother-in-law at Green Bar Kitchen. We had already been to the test kitchen location. Now we were checking out the main location. I got the Mush & Asp Taco with Mushrooms, Asparagus, Lettuce, Mango Salsa, Garlic Aioli and Cilantro. Fortunately, I was not very hungry since we had such a satisfying lunch. The portion was small, but tasty.
Gary ordered the Buffalo Tempeh Sandwich with organic marinated Tempeh, Lettuce, Dill Ranch and Buffalo Sauce. It was a rather uninspired sandwich, just okay.
My brother-in-law chose the Kimchi Salad.
My sister got a burger without the bun.
The outdoor dining area was a pleasant space, complete with a buddha. It’s always good to have another vegan place in town.
After dinner we spun up to Tamarac to catch the end of the EarthSave Miami dinner/lecture event. We wanted to say hi to some old friends including George Eisman, RD who was speaking. Here I am with Jeff Tucker, the event organizer.
Evening: Back at our room, we packed our bags for tomorrow’s return trip and enjoyed Trader Joe’s Well Rested Herbal Tea with Dark Chocolate, Dates and Walnuts.
