My Vegan Mondays

Coffee with soy milk

Tofu wrap

A lovely glass of French Merlot and smoked almonds at the Mandarin Oriental
A vegan smorgasbord at Joseph Leonard: a butter lettuce, fennel and radish salad; roasted cauliflower with pine nuts; shaved brussels sprouts; broccoli rabe with gigante beans; French lentils; and a funky Languaduc red.

The key here is that it's possible to go out and still eat vegan, and eat well. I had a drinks date, followed by a dinner date and usually that calls for splurging and excess. But my dinner date was with a vegan friend who knows how to navigate (good) restaurants and order well—and totally vegan. It was a good reminder of how easy it can be.

I hope everyone's plans for a healthy 2013 continue without a hitch!  


  1. I am not hungry anymore. It is too hot to eat and I have no appetite for the food here anymore.
    This is not a problem, as long as there is an emergency supply of fresh avocados, plum tomatoes and jars of Nutella and bananas.
    There you have it - my diet of late lol.

  2. That sounds like a pretty delicious diet, mon amie! xo
