What Vegans Eat – Day 683


Breakfast: It’s Erev Chanukah and Christmas Eve and a good excuse to party! We started the day with Vanilla Black tea and Gary and I shared one Gingerbread Cookie.
Daily Green Juice: We worked together on making a lovely holiday meal but did not think about what we would eat before then. My green juice helped me keep going with Kale, Collards, Red Babbage, Celery, Carrots, Ginger and Lemon.
Dinner: It was all ready to go. Gary prepared the drinks – my favorite Manhattan made with Maker’s Mark and Tribuno. He had prepared fresh cherries for the cocktails the day before with holiday spices.
We began with Baked Potato Latkes in our four traditional flavors: Plain Potato, Carrot Onion, Buckwheat and Kale (instead of Spinach) and served them with Tofu Sour Cream and Apple Sauce.
Gary made his Christmas Eve favorite – Sausage with Peppers. He prepared his Spicy Tomato Sauce adding sautéed Green Bell Peppers and Field Roast Sausages. I had baked a variation on my gluten-free, Challah bread, making a loaf instead of a round so we could have sandwiches.
We cut into the Apple Pie and served it with So Delicious Chocolate and Vanilla Coconut Milk Ice Cream
Evening: We ate well, but not too much. My new herbal tea blend of Mint, Chamomile and Ginger topped off the evening festivities. Happy Holidays!
