I’m home from San Francisco! As the title of this post suggests, Alan and I did get a flat tire on the way home. But, thank goodness, because of the tire pressure sensors on the car, it didn’t actually go completely flat before we were able to get it fixed. Phew! Despite the rough ending, we had a great time on Saturday which was our last full day in the city. We started off with brunch at The Plant Cafe which I really enjoyed (we had dinner there on Thursday night). I had the “good start” juice made from celery, kale, broccoli, ginger and apple:
I really need to start juicing more at home, it’s such an awesome way to get concentrated nutrients! I took a picture of the cafe’s juice list to get some inspiration:
At $5.75 for a large glass, I can definitely beat that price at home, too! I also had the kale salad that was topped with quinoa, avocado and chopped almonds (I asked for the lemon vinaigrette on the side):
I finished with a Sabazon bowl that I somehow managed to not take a picture of, but it was sabazon blended with apple juice and served over house-made granola. I have a feeling that the granola had a lot of sugar in it because it honestly tasted too sweet to me! It made me a little happy to realize that my tastebuds are definitely more sensitive to sugar now.
After brunch, we hit the farmers’ market at the Ferry Building where I found some heirloom beans and some other treasures:
Here are the beans close up, I can’t wait to try them!
After the farmers’ market and more family time, Alan and I had a chance to walk around, visit a couple of museums and do some shopping on Market Street.
I saw this cool plaque while waiting for a streetcar:
I love to travel and experience new and different things, but sometimes I think the best part is coming home!
