My Vegan Mondays

Needless to say, last Monday blew by with nary a thought to veganism (and clearly, almond croissants contain more than a little dairy). I didn’t know what day of the week it was. I was on vacation. All I could think about was consuming as much as possible in my limited time in Paris. Which I did. For better or worse.

But now I’m back in New York. Soon I won’t be able to hide in sweaters. Time to get with it.

Three cups of green tea (temporarily off the coffee—go me!)
Oat cake

Falafel sandwich
And some fries. But only a few. They came with the sandwich. And they’re vegan.

This beautiful veggie pie from Life Thyme: layers of quinoa, kale, squash, sundried tomato—it’s truly delicious
Dried apple, imported from G. Detou, Paris. This is my VICE.


  1. I'm new to your lovely blog! Are you Vegan? I'm vegetarian and going to stay in Lille, France for a month, and I was trying to see how hard was it eating around en France? Please and thank you!

  2. If an apple is your vice you're not doing too badly! Looks yummy :)

  3. I am going through a rough spot with life / Pup is ill and all I can stand is to drink. So my meals have been coffee with soup for dinner. But it was a delicious vegetable soup with tomatoes and spices . un beso, C

  4. I went off the coffee in exchange for green tea several years ago. It feels amazing - mornings are clear and fresh. Every once in a while, though, I'll treat myself to a decaf or a half-caff half-decaf and man, I'm full of energy for the entire day!
