What Vegans Eat – Day 972, Travel Edition


Breakfast: It’s time to hit the road again. Before leaving Watsonville we had our last meal at Dave’s. I made a pot of Steel Cut Oats and topped them with Blueberries.
I woke up with a cold. I was not surprised. I had been running all month taking care of my dad and trying to keep up with work. Then we got on a plane, which is never a healthy place to be. And these last few days I indulged in foods and drinks that were not the healthiest for me – wheat, oil, wine and coffee. It was time to pay the price. My body was demanding a green smoothie. I made a thick one with Kale, Blueberries, Strawberries, Grapes, Pineapple and Soy Milk. I gave a sample to Dave and a big glass to Gary. I had two glasses.
The first stop north on our journey was the Staff of Life in Santa Cruz. It’s our favorite grocery store.

We picked up a couple of green juices they call Steve Banner. I am focusing on aiding my immune system. We were looking at a collection of fun calendars while our juices were being made. Since we are here to audition a cast for the musical The Sound of Music, we especially liked Nun’s Having Fun calendar.
Lunch: Next stop was Andales in Los Gatos. We ordered a little cleaner here this time, with Mixed Salads topped with Tofu and sides of Black Beans.
Dinner: Our final destination for the day was Gary’s brother’s home in Monte Sereno. After bringing in the bags, we settled in for a simple meal of Baby Kale Salad with Tomatoes and Quinoa.
Gary’s brother served Bark Thins for a treat. I tried the one with Almonds.
