    Sooooo jealous you are going to san fran maybe I’ll jump in the car and meet you there. only a 16 hour drive.

    other than CG, I would go to Millenium for sure. Good stuff. Herbivore is pretty good too.

    Well, I can’t help you much with San Francisco, I haven’t been there (or much anywhere, really [at least for now!]), but your crackers look like a good snack to take with you on your voyage there! Actually, I’ll probably buy your cookbook just so I can have that recipe, lol.

    My favorite kale chip recipe is with a little bit of olive oil and steak seasoning (hehe) though I must try some with nooch!

    lovee the shirt!

    “chocolate chip cookie dough hummus” oh my, the hummus gods here in Saudi Arabia would either be in shock or in absolute heaven!!! Your flatbread looks pretty incredible too, I was thinking of cranking up my dehydrator today for something similar.

    PS I’ve just tweeted you with a contact in SF I reckon he might look after you! Awesome work trip for Matt (gotta love them – Pat is hoping to get one to Houston later this year and reckons me and bubs can come along too!)

    Cafe Gratitude?!?! So jealous! Have you seen “May I Be Frank”? And LOVE the t-shirt too!

  7. Mom

    Love that shirt – you look so cute! Perfect in red!

  8. eliz@thesweetlife

    what an impressive list of cookes and uncooked meals!!

    You have to check out Gracias Madre (owned by the same couple as Cafe Gratitude) and Millennium.

    Please take lots of pictures. I want details. I’m going to be in SF in August and can’t wait to tour the best restaurants.

    Oooo! I’m most interested in the flatbread, looks yummy! Very cute shirt. I’m sure you’ll have no problem finding great vegan and raw spots in San Fran, though I have no suggestions for you.

    Yay, you’re going to the Bay Area! I loved living there, but didn’t eat out much. Cafe Gratitude is great, and if ‘Alive’ Restaurant on Lombard St is still open, it’s great too.

    Sweet shirt, and fun that you’re enjoying the raw vibe so much.

    You _must_ check out the farmers markets in SF–they are so awesome. Ferry Plaza is the biggest, but there are farmers markets pretty much every day. Berkeley and Oakland (where I lived) are awesome too.


  12. Katie

    That is such a cute shirt!! I want!

    I also want that hummus. Now.

  13. Hannah

    Why didn’t you go on Matt’s Sydney work trip? San Francisco is STOOPID. You make me cry inside.

    Now that my tantrum is out of the way… hecka yum! Would you believe yours is the third cookie dough dip in my google reader today? If only I wasn’t completely exhausted (and it’s only 8:30pm… I’m not used to busy Saturdays :P) I’d be up like a shot making one myself. Instead, I shall eat the last of my raw marzipan balls and then an entire packe of seaweed rice crackers. Sodium FTW!

    P.S. Your hair is so shiny. I want to touch it.
    P.P.S. Sorry. I’m really quite exhausted.
    P.P.P.S. It really is wonderfully shiny though.
    P.P.P.P.S. I want to touch it.

    Love the shirt!
    I’m really intrigued about dessert hummus, sounds amazing!!! I’ve been on a major cauliflower and broccoli kick lately, I can’t get enough!
    Have a great time in San Fran 🙂

  15. Hillary

    Oooh! Exciting! I may have to ask restaurant advice for my trip to San Diego in a month….that is, if the brand new nephew coooperates with being out in public!

    Also, that’s how I make my oven crisped kale chips….I like it much better than most the flavored goop (I love good as a general rule, just not on dried kale).

  16. movesnmunchies

    i love your shirt! and you make that cookie dough hummus look FANtastic~!

  17. Ashlei

    I’ve been loving the raw foods lately too 🙂 Cute shirt!

  18. Evan Thomas

    Glad you loved it! I need to try it with cashew butter; I forgot how much I loved that stuff until I had it at breakfast.

  19. Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather

    I’ve never been to SF so I’ll move onto the food… That sweet hummus is genious! I have some chickpeas soaking right now that I was going to use for some spinach artichoke hummus but I am so changing that up right now. Thanks for the linkage!

  20. Kylie @ A Hungry Spoon

    Have fun in San Francisco! I’ve never been there either, but I’ve heard they have an amazing food scene! Your raw eats for the week look awesome–especially that cookie dough hummus. I loved Evan’s other dessert hummus recipe, so I’m definitely going to have to try this one next.

    Wishing you safe travels, Amber! Have a great week 🙂

  21. cfengland

    Holy damn, that cookie dough hummus looks amazing.

    LOVE the shirt – too cute. Have fun!

  22. Sarah (Flavoropolis)

    Millenium was the first place that came to my head too. I once had the chef’s tasting menu there, and it completely blew my mind. It included what are probably the best vegan desserts I have ever had, and I have had more than my fair share of vegan desserts.

  23. Simply Life

    oh what a fun idea for hummus!

  24. The Robertsons of Mumbai

    That shirt is fab! I’ve never been to SF. Have a wonderful time! Whoop, whoop!

  25. Pure2raw twins

    You will love Cafe Gratitude! I ate there twice when I was there! Have fun!

  26. Tanya Alekseeva

    Amber!!!!! Woooooooooooooooo!!! You won you won YOU WON! Just saw the email from Living Light! So so happy for you! Hope it was my vote that contributed large hehe. I bet you won by miles though! So happy for you, huge congratulations! xTanya

  27. Jennifer Knight

    You won!! I’m not the first to leave the comment but wanted to say it anyway. Congrats. You are inspirational. I’m making the transition to vegan and don’t love tons of veggies, so you are making it look easier to me. My cousin Teri was in your class at 105 Academy… that’s how I found you.

  28. (what runs) Lori

    That shirt is awesome! I need one!

    Can’t wait to see you! SF is very fun. 🙂

    Wasn’t Evan’s dessert hummus incredible. Such a great idea! I made it with black beans (twice) and ate the entire thing (of both cans of black beans made into hummus) in 3 days. Good and bad came from this.. 😉

  29. Michele

    Hi Amber,
    I’m just curious as to your final thoughts on this p90x thing. Was it worth doing? Did you feel stronger for it, or just more appreciative of RAW food when you were done? I’d be curious to hear your evaluation of your experience.

  30. rachelsmusicalkitchen

    What does that cookie dough-hummus taste like? Sweet? Salty? Sweet and salty? I know that seems like a dumb questions, but I’m questionable on if I would like them together. 🙂
    And that fried rice looks DELICIOUS! I’m going to have to look into making it.
    And LOVE the shirt.
