I broke my left leg about three weeks ago, and I’m across the country from my Virginia home. I’ve been in my little condo apartment here in Portland recovering for 15 days now, and everything I eat has been bought for me or cooked for me by an omnivore. Every bite I had in three days at Emanuel hospital was plant-based. Every bite at home has been plant based and made almost entirely out of whole food. My daughter, friends, friends of my daughter, my sister and brother-in-law, my brother and sister-in-law, omni all, who have taken turns visiting or staying with me, and they turn out to be kind and accommodating vegan cooks. And when they eat with me, they’re nearly always eating these plant-based dishes too. One exception is when someone brings me vegan drumsticks from Fire On the Mountain. They will usually buy chicken wings for themselves, but they do get rid of all traces of it as they clean up and leave. I am drowning in gratitude here!
