What Vegans Eat – Day 977, Travel Edition


Breakfast: We met Gary’s sister and brother-in-law, the mother and father of the bride, for breakfast at the hotel. BREAKING NEWS! This Hyatt hotel served Almond Milk along with the dairy milk and juices. Wow. There is hope for the planet!
Gary and I piled the Oatmeal in our plastic bowls and topped it with Slivered Almonds, Golden Raisins and Almond Milk plus a side of fresh Fruit. Gary tried one of the herbal teas offered and I went with the Chai. Aside from the plastic dishes, it was a very good breakfast. I suppose one of the excuses for using plastic is the idea that in a drought-prone area, they would be saving water. Unfortunately making plastic uses more water that would be saved by washing dishes, and then there’s that landfill that just gets piled higher and deeper. But they have Almond Milk, so that’s a start!
Lunch: We were expected at the Flour Farm Inn for the wedding at about 3pm. We took time to work out in the gym. I had a light lunch of Kidney Beans from one of the packages that we had brought with us.
Dinner: The weather was perfect for an outdoor, afternoon ceremony. And Gary was perfect as the Officiant. We were all moved when the couple said their individually composed vows. Then we moved on to mingling with drinks and appetizers. I had an unsweetened Iced Tea. Gary and I decided we were not drinking alcohol this evening. The Lemonade was too sweet. There were a couple of vegan Appetizers, like this Bruschetta. Thanks, Lisa!
Everyone loved the Sweet Potato Fries.
For dinner, we were served the vegan plate with Baked Potates, Salad and Vegetables delicately seasoned with Garlic and Dill.
Lisa even thought of dessert for us – Dark Chocolate. I had a few small pieces and stashed the rest away in a cocktail napkin to bring home. It was too good to waste.
Evening: We danced for hours. When we got back to the hotel it was time to relax and eat again! We had burned a lot of calories. I am sure Gary burned a lot more than me, worrying about marrying his niece and her fiancé Brian. I was so grateful for Gary bringing a couple of plastic storage containers. They make great bowls. We had Rolled Oats, Soy Milk, Raisins, Bananas, Peanuts and Chia Seeds.
For dessert, I had an Avocado. It was like pudding.
