Ok so I’ve decided that San Angelo isn’t awful…and after all it’s only less than 4 hours away from Austin!!! Oh Austin, my little drop of blue in a big sea of red.
So we left San Angelo this morning and the first thing we did in Austin was visit Beets Cafe on 5th street – it is an all raw//organic//vegan//gluten free restaurant and it is INCREDIBLE
We had the
Traditional hummus, a creamy blend of zucchini, tahini, sesame seeds, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, spices, served with crunchy garden vegetable crudités
and for our entrees,
A delicious sprouted almond sunflower flatbread, spread with a creamy cashew dijonaise, layered with crispy spiced eggplant “bacon”, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and high-vibe sprouts, served with crispy veggie chips.
A sprouted sunflower seed crust generously topped with seasoned almond nut cheese, zesty tomato sauce, marinated mushrooms, sweet peppers, crispy onions, olives, fresh tomato, basil, spices, and crystal salt, served with a petite Caesar salad.
they were so incredible. If all food tasted like those I could be Vegan in a heartbeat!!!
We had delicious chocolate cheesecake for dessert. yup, still vegan//raw//organic//gluten free…sooo healthy
and then I’ll skip the rest of the day and go straight to dinner…at….The WHOLE FOODS flagship store!!
We just walked around for a bit, taking in everything they have…and then made another lap to pick up dinner. between the pizza//sandwhiches//sushi//juicebar//salad bar// olive bar//bbq//soups//seafood//bakery//indian food//dessert bar//everything else – it was pretty daunting, but we made our way and had some delicious food. I particularly enjoyed my butternut & kale salad <3
for dessert we made our way back to the hotel to enjoy some yerba mate tea and the raw cinnimon rolls we had bought earlier at Beets.
Now relaxing and recharging to eat our way through Austin tomorrow!!
