NorCal Eats: Amy’s Drive Thru

IMG_3093

Many of you have probably walked through the freezer aisle, at your local grocery store, and seen the plethora of Amy’s Kitchen frozen products (if you haven’t, go look!) I was first introduced to Amy’s products back in 2013 when I decided I was going to try and follow a vegetarian (and later vegan) diet. I am not afraid to admit I used to rely heavily on convenience foods and being able to find a company that not only offered veggie friendly items, but truly cared about the ingredients they used, made switching up my diet so much easier. When it was announced that Amy’s was in the process of opening up an eatery, in Rohnert Park, CA, that promoted the same values, and offered the same amazing food as their packaged products, I was beyond excited. In the summer of 2015, dreams became reality; Amy’s Drive Thru was open for business!

NorCal Eats: True Food Kitchen (TBT)

As some of you may have seen on social media, I had oral surgery earlier this week which has kept me laying low (and not worrying too much about blog content) However, I figured this would be a perfect time to post [another] Throwback Thursday post to hold you over.

This was my review of True Food Kitchen in Walnut Creek, CA, last summer. Unfortunately we moved a little further away recently and can’t visit as much as I would like to. Honestly, to this day, I still crave their breakfast burrito (as described below)

Enjoy!

I want to start by saying I had my reservations about True Food Kitchen. When I first heard this new eatery was being added to the updated, posh-like, Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek, CA, I assumed it was one of those “fad” places. Somewhere I didn’t feel like I needed to bother trying. Although the upscale attitude of it’s surroundings were a fair observation, we were in the vicinity, hungry, and figured we would give it a go.

NorCal Eats: The Butcher’s Son (TBT)

In honor of throwback Thursday (TBT), I wanted to share a post I wrote for my old blog, last year.

I feel a small disclaimer is necessary before you read on. I visited The Butcher’s Son, and composed this post, when I was following a vegan diet. I no longer label myself a “vegan”, (I consume animal products, currently) But I still really enjoying eating plant-based and finding plant-based versions of non-vegan items.

I hope you enjoy this blast from the past!

If you are within driving distance of Berkeley, CA, do yourself a favor and check out The Butcher’s Son.

It took my husband and I almost a year after hearing about this place to actually take the time to go eat there. Wow, what took us so long?!
