What Vegans Eat – Day 643


Breakfast: Gary was going to his last class at HB Studio for the term. We had so much to do before leaving for California the next day he was tempted to skip the class but I would not let him. I knew he would get a lot out of it and enjoy it so skipping was not an option. We had big bowls of Oatmeal with Blueberries, Apples and Raisins and he was off.
Dinner: Gary got home from class late. (Yes, he was glad to have not missed it.) We got in our rental car and drove to my parents’ home. I had promised to see them before we left for California, especially since we would be missing the Thanksgiving holiday with them. When we got to their house, we were presented with the traditional Fresh Fruit spread with Nuts, Crackers and Hummus.
Then we went to a nearby restaurant called Victor’s. We had been there once before and didn’t like it. My parents go there a lot. The other nearby option was Jani’s but my dad said he had Chinese food “coming out of his ears.” I wanted to get the safest, simplest thing I could find which wasn’t easy. We stood at the counter to order and the wait staff was not attentive or accommodating. I went for the Arugula Salad, with no cheese. It looked lovely, with bright colors. Unfortunately the Arugula was very bitter. I ate it all but it was not a pleasant experience. I was given a Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing that was thick, gelatinous and unappetizing so I didn’t use it.
Gary wanted a small vegetable pizza with no cheese and no sauce. They were not able to do this for him. He ordered the Vegetable Pizza which was huge and it took a long time to get it. I don’t think people order this one very often and they had to prepare the veggies once Gary made the order. When it arrived it was impressive, the vegetables were stunning and very fresh. I had to try a slice. There was a lot left over, which we took home and froze. You’ll see this again in a few weeks.
Daily Green Juice: Once home, we had to pack. We drank our green juice with Kale, Collards, Celery, Lemon.
