Full life circle around, Genki Husband and I are watching my grandmother as my parents are away for spring break vacation. She just turned 81 years old a few weeks ago and suffers from a very early-stage of dementia so she has to have constant supervision just in case she gets confused. It’s been almost ten-years since I have lived in this house or in Michigan in-fact so it’s always a bit strange coming back, even for a visit. The whole situation is familiar but awkward all at the same time. Any have this experience or is it just me?
So on to the food. My grandmother eats a very traditional standard American diet (S.A.D) so I have to make meals specifically for her. It was really hard making her food that I considered unhealthy and inhumane but at last I did it. Normally I do not judge what others eat however when I have to make it, it is a different story. ha-ha Since I wish I could have shared my delicious vegan meals with my grandmother instead of the meat & carbohydrate heavy (and the vegetables I slip on her plate) dishes she so desires, I will just imagine she ate the healthier options along with us and I’ll only post what we ate. Today was a bit strange since we traveled between houses and were getting my grandmothers’ schedule down. So here’s what we ate:
Dinner: As it was a very busy evening with switching houses and watching my elderly grandmother, we did not get to take a photo of our dinner. But we had organic mixed greens with salsa on top and plain vegan ramen.
Snack: Homemade Cinnamon Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (see photo above)
Exercise: It was rainy again so we didn’t manage to get outside and run. We are rather missing our gym now that we can’t get there due to being up in Michigan at the moment. But when you don’t have a gym, it’s time to start doing some home workouts. I’ll be posting them soon. For now, we are running around doing millions of errands for my grandmother.
