What Vegans Eat – Day 708: Travel Edition


Breakfast: We don’t have a pantry here in the pool house but we made sure we had whole grains like Rolled Oats, Millet and Polenta. This morning we had Earl Grey Tea, fresh Oranges and a steamy, creamy pile of Polenta. What you can’t see in the picture are the Bananas and Chia Seeds underneath the polenta.
Lunch: Leaving early for rehearsal we had time to grab some lunch. I thought we might try the Park Station Hashery which was right around the corner from the theater. We used to go there all the time with Gary’s family when it was an Italian restaurant called Antonella’s. When we got there we were delighted to see Octavio behind the register. He used to be one of the servers at Antonella’s. We knew we’d be in good hands. We asked him which dishes were vegan or could be made vegan. There were some nice choices. I got the Roasted Veggie Sandwich with a juicy Portabello Mushroom and Sauteed Onions and a side Salad. Gary got the Herbed Tomato Soup.
He also got an order of Chickpea Fries. They went fast!

Daily Green Juice: While I was at rehearsal, Gary went over to Starbucks. He brought me back a tea and a bottled Evolution Sweet Greens and Lemon Juice.
Dinner: After another long night of rehearsing we settled in at the pool house to eat. I began with a sheet of Sea Snax. I love these oiled and salted sheets of nori. I first had them when working in South Korea as en engineer back in 1999. I would have lunch in the cafeteria and these seaweed sheets with white rice were the only things I could eat. I didn’t mind because it was yummy.
I made a quick Arugula Salad with Walnuts and Balsamic Vinegar.
That was followed by a quick Big Noodle Soup with low sodium Vegetable Broth, Corn/Quinoa Noodles, Vegan Shrimp, Asian Greens and Green Onions. I could eat this every night.
