Breakfast: Coffee, Green Goddess Shake (I used soy protein powder instead of tofu since I was out of tofu. The result was not the same. The protein powder made it more smooth, but it changed the taste. I like tofu in my shake better.)
Lunch: I call this Vegan American Breakfast! (Home Fries, Colored Pepper, Roasted Beets, Curried Kale and Chickpeas)
Dinner at Teeda Thai with Friends: Pad See Ew with Tofu, Thai Vegetable Dumplings—a small gem in Redhook, Brooklyn. The Vegetable Dumplings smelled like and tasted like filled with green garlic in a sticky mochi like pastry. Very good. 🙂
Vegan American Breakfast?
Pad See Ew- with tofu
Breakfast: Coffee, Green Goddess Shake—oh, I missed you, Green Goddess.
Quiet Lunch: MIso Soup, 2 Rice Balls, Kimpira, Green Beans with Sesame Dressing, Simmed Soybeans, Fuji Apple
Dinner at Wondee: Pad See Ew, Papaya Salad—Papaya Salad was good, but very spicy although I asked for mild. Pad See Ew was good enough, it was my mistake to ask for fried tofu instead of fresh tofu. It made the dish greasy. We went this place because it was close to the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, home for annual Paul Winter Winter Solstice Concert.
Pad See Ew
Oats and Banana
Breakfast: Coffee, Rolled Oats, Banana, Almond Milk
Lunch at Thai Village: Pad See Ew with Tofu, Curry Puff—I used to order Pad Thai at any new Thai restaurant. But I found a new favorite dish. Pad See Ew. This little unpretentious restaurant did very well and people were nice, too.
Snack: Cafe Macchiato from Nine Street Espresso—my favorite coffee. A small Sfogliatella from De Robertis Pasticceria—my favorite Italian pastry. Oh, I’m still on a holiday diet. It’s tough to stick to vegan, especially when you are showing around town to an out-of-town relative.
Dinner at Sapporo: Miso Udon—I wanted a hot yet quiet noodle soup. This was exactly it.
