Whatta day! Whatta fun fun day! Packed with action relaxing.
We started the day with a little grooming – how much Bare Minerals do two girls need for one weekend!?
And then joined a group for breakfast at Bread & Cocoa. I ate here last year and knew they had a fabulous oatmeal topping bar. I was thrilled to see it’s still in action!
Finally got to meet MamaPea!!
Of course I got the oatmeal – steel cut and hearty!!
And of course I travel with Barney Butter 😉
I topped my oats with chopped almonds, golden raisins, CHAI GRANOLA and the most amazing coconut.
Went back for a few extra toppings, but didn’t end up finishing the oats underneath – the portion was huge!
On the side – a Cafe au Lait (a.k.a. “misto” with half milk, half coffee)
After breakfast, Gina and I went to pretty up our fingers. Good for camera clicking and food photography!
We searched for a good nail salon yesterday with no luck, but today we just happened to stumble upon this awesome one – Salon thi. It was on the second floor and was bright and airy and we were treated like queens!
The silver selection:
Next up was a little shopping. We went to Lululemon and I got a pair of running pants! I tried on the TaTa Tamer and actually didn’t like it. I felt more like Madonna than a jock 🙁
After that we realized we were out of time (sorry for the blogging delay!) and we had a 2.5 mile walk to the SF version of Yoga To The People
After a lovely warmup speed walk to get there on time, we arrived at the most beautiful yoga studio I’ve ever seen. Gorgeous wide open wood floors. The class was awesome – a simple power yoga flow. LOVED fitting this into my week.
More walking in the same neighborhood led us to the very famous Cafe Gratitude!!
I was shocked that we were able to get a table for 7 (and found about 15 other bloggers already there!)
This might be my new favorite restaurant I’ve visited for lunch. Mostly (all?) plant foods and lots of creative raw creations, it was a healthy foodie’s ideal menu.
Also, an onion-hater’s ideal menu! Look closely!
Our table of 7 shared a sample plate of very awesome things. Raw crackers and spreads and collard green rolls.
And then the foods arrived. Sprouts are so gorgeous!!
It was a hard decision, but I decided on the tacos – rice, black beans, masa tortillas, cashew cream, veggies, guac and salsa
They were incredible!!!
I got the sauces on the side in case they were oniony, but they were my favorite part!
Didn’t quite finish my lunch so I would have room for……coconut cream pie!
WOW WOW – this was the best coconut cream pie I’ve ever had! The filling was so vanilla-beany and light like whipped cream.
Split 7 ways, it was gone fast!!
After the big, late lunch, we enjoyed the 2.5 mile hike back to the hotel (with a pit stop for shopping!)
I’m now trying to upload photos, blog, shower, make-up and get dressed all at once. Hope I’m not late.
And the Foodbuzz Festival begins NOW!
