Josh & I just came back from our journey to a distant land.....Portland, Oregon!
We were welcoming my 30th year....after an amazing surprise party.....with our dear friends who now live there.
I already knew before we left that I would love the vibe of this super conscious city. I was correct! Not only did I love it, but Josh loved it....maybe even more!
Portland is a city of music....art....eco-lifestyling....and of course food!
Being a vegan has its challenges....especially living in WPB, Fl (no offense).
I was like a kid in a candy store! Breakfast, lunch, and dinner....vegan options all over.
A few of my favs were right in the city.
Prasad, which is a cafe inside Pearl Yoga, great classes, had the most amazing breakfast...maybe ever!
It was a bowl with beans, kale, rice, quinoa, avo, tempeh, and yummy sauces.
If you ever get the chance to go to Portland you MUST go here.
Vita Cafe.....vegan biscuits and gravy!!! Thia was a first for me.....and they also have non-vegan options.
Portabello....a fine dining experience....beautiful space....just not quite as awwed by the food. They did however have vegan tiramisu....scrumptious!!
As many people have seen on the food channel, VOODOO Donuts, definitely lived up to the hype. We were strongly urged by my bro to check it out and I'm so happy we did! I helped myself to 2 donuts. The classic glazed and then the old dirty bastard which had peanut butter and oreos. yes....i know....sinful! and................vegan!
Last but not least....the food carts of PDX. My favorite was the Whole Bowl. She has a "secret sauce" that was yummers. Thats the pic at the top. The perfect warm and healthy treat.
Needless to say our Portland experience was delightful and breath taking. The coast was beautiful with its snow covered hills and the city was energetic yet peaceful. The best of both worlds.
And now....I hope to bring that same peaceful, healthy, conscious, yummyness to south fl. Who knows what the future holds!
