What Vegans Eat – Day 957


Breakfast: We were serving up our breakfasts today in the style of Gary’s mom, Margie. When out at one of her favorite spots for lunch, Nordstrom Cafe in San Jose, she’d like to ask the server to bring her an extra cloth napkin to use as a placemat. On his napkin, Gary laid out his breakfast of Toast with Banana and Peanut Butter, with Teeccino.
I copied him, and put my Red Lentil Soup with Mushrooms on my napkin and finished the jar of Homemade Sauerkraut.
Lunch: I brought our bikes up from the basement and filled the tires. It was time for a bike ride! We hadn’t been on our bikes for a long time. Before leaving, I had a Sludgie, with Kale Stems, Celery, Carrots, Banana, Cacao Nibs, Lemon and Water.
Snack: We rode over to Flushing Meadows Corona Park, home of the 1964-65 World’s Fair, The US Open Tennis Tournament, and CITI Field, where the New York Mets play ball! Everyone was out today. It’s always like a trip around the world in this park because so many nationalities are represented. We saw a group of Jews celebrating the Tashlich at the lake. There were women in many different head coverings of all colors and styles, even one in a Niqab. There were people of all ages, colors and sizes playing soccer in the different fields, and men sitting together in dishdashas and white caps. This is what I love about Queens, NY – everyone is welcome and coexists peacefully. We road all around the park, stopped by the globe for a while to rest and drink water and later got ourselves some Lime Popsicles. The ingredients were not so bad, it even had lemon pulp. But the artificial color wasn’t necessary.
Dinner: On the way home we picked up a couple of very ripe Pineapples and Strawberries. I serve a Pineapple for our dinner appetizer.
The rest of dinner was easy, a repeat from yesterday: Sweet Potatoes, Black Beans with Corn, Red Onions and Red Peppers served over Millet.
Plus Gary made a fresh Kale Salad with Chopped Red Cabbage.
