More Sun More Cafe

dessert - dinner - gluten free - restaurant - salads - sandwich - vegan

SunCafe Organic is one of my favorite vegan restaurants in Los Angeles.  They moved, but just up the street…

…to a bigger space with valet parking (free if you’re picking up for takeout)…

…and a patio.

Dogs welcome!

My favorite vegetarian was my date, of course.

I didn’t have any of the alcoholic stuff…

…but did partake of Grapefruit Sage Kombucha on tap.

(Abe was quite pleased with the craft beers and specialty cocktails.)

Here’s what we ate!

Naners made an additional appearance in this stellar Tahitian Vanilla Shake…

All the food was, as usual, wonderful and plentiful!  We wound up taking our entrees home as leftovers…

What’s New Pussycat

beauty - breakfast - dessert - life

I’ll tell you what’s new – Chinatown Scoops! My favorite gelato place has opened right next to Chego. They’re slightly less generous than the original, but it’s the same sweet stuff.

My hair’s no longer a virgin! I finally stopped plucking the grays (okay, Abe stopped) and got it dyed for free at an Aloxxi Color Workshop.

After Wednesday’s post, my twinsie Emily dropped off some flowers + homemade granola to cheer me up…

…a mashup of two recipes – using fewer nuts, 2 TB coconut oil, 1/3 cup Grade B Maple Syrup, and her own mix-ins of dried blueberries, coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds and almonds. Did the trick – food is love.

Courtney asked me if I’m still eating cantaloupe/miso/candy daily. The answer is yes, but I’m now addicted to nuts as well – either a handful of raw almonds/cashews/pecans or spoonful of natural almond butter (<—you must try this trick).

P.S. Salad dressing on pizza instead of tomato sauce = Do it.

P.P.S. Palo Alto = See it.

Piece of Pizza

product review - trader joe's - vegan

Abe and I didn’t have a great experience with the fresh rice noodles at Trader Joe’s, but both gave a thumbs up to another new (to us) item.

These organic pizza crusts can be found in the freezer section. I know it should be easy to form dough into perfect circles, but for us, it isn’t. If you need photographic evidence, check out these three posts.

After 15 minutes of thawing (about the time it takes the oven to heat up), the dough is ready to be topped. We went with pesto sauce (jarred), Daiya Cheese Slices, and Cherry Tomatoes.

No pizza stone in this house, but we do have a cast iron grill!

Yum. You better believe I tore into that bubble!
