    Gluten-free vegan Mexican food?! San Francisco has everything.

    I still feel like I’ve met you, and it’s crazy that we haven’t, since we were both in the KC area. The timing just wasn’t right, I suppose, although I did attend the same Ethiopian cooking class as you (what? 2 or 3 years ago?). Small world!

    What a fabulous trip, eats, meetup….when are you moving there? 🙂

    Wow that lentil dish with the sweet potatoes looks fabulous! I have some lentils on the stove now, I know what I’m making for lunch tomorrow. 🙂

    Food first, I guess… (and yes to the plantain ice cream idea!) but Matt’s “bowl” looks out of control good! As does yours. As does the Kale-ifornia. (hehe) As do WE!!! I love us. 🙂

    Seriously, KC is coming my way- back to my soulmate! 🙂 ya ya ya!

    Man, I totally want to be in SF right now enjoying all their great vegan dining options! That’s great that you got to check out VegNews’ headquarters–I’ve communicated with Lyndsay before and she’s great 🙂

    Yay! I was looking forward to seeing your account of your meeting with Lori–it got me so excited that the two of you met up. Wish I could have been there as well.

    I missed your cafe g post, so going to check that. Glad they’re still going.

    I have a few writer friends in real life who are also blog friends–it makes me wish I could meet more of my other blog friends.

    So cool that you got to sign your first autograph! I’m ordering my copy this week and I can’t wait to make something from it. Look for my sure to be enthusiastic review soon!

    Meeting blog friends is so much fun. I love that you can just pick up talking to each other like you’ve actually met before. You guys look like you had an awesome time!

    I was pretty much drooling by the end of this post! How fun to finally meet a blogger buddy! I’m glad you had such a good time.

    Everything looks so good! Speaking of looking good, guess who got her copy of your book? 😉 LOVE!!

    I’ve met a ton of people from an old bulletin board I was a part of back in the day (you know, before social networking sites). I was on a teen moms bulletin board, and eventually we all moved on to diaryland, xanga, livejournal, myspace, and not facebook/twitter/google+….but quite a few of them I’ve met and consider to be very good friends!

    Oh my gosh, I think I finally understand what you’ve meant when you’ve said that you’re happy for me meeting up with blog friends but envious too! I wanna be there… but am so deliriously ecstatic that Lori gladdens your soul 🙂

    Love, love the build-a-bowl idea! So my thing 🙂 One day I’ll try plantains properly! I’ve only had them in packet chip form (in New York.)

    1. The food at Power Source definitely seemed like health food. That’s good and bad. Good because I felt like I was eating wholesome stuff that my body would appreciate. Bad because it was a little bland. I wasn’t into the saucy stuff which was supposed to be the flavor.

    2. The VegNews crew was awesome and gracious. Gave us a tour, were very complimentary, so easy going and friendly. Quality people.

    3. Lori and Sascha were great fun. Amber and I clearly had a great time with them. Would love hanging out with them again anytime. You should meet them too!

  14. Jess from Midwest Vegan

    Sounds like an awesome time!!

    And fried yuca is amazing, lol. 🙂

    A classy lesbian dive bar, lol. How is it that you check out the California gay bar before I do? I have yet to go to one. I’m going to Cali again this summer and I’m determined to escape from family at some point and find one.

    Looks like you all had a heck of a time!

    The cafe looks adorable! I love the bright colours!

  17. shannonmarie (rawdorable)

    Good eats, as usual, and good friends, too. I’m so glad you and Lori hit it off so well. She always seems like she’d be fun to hang out with when I read her blog.

    Everything looks amazing, that maize bread wrap is intriguing me. Think you could recreate it? Must have been so fun to visit VegNews headquarters. And exciting about your book too!

    That was a very hearty and healthy meet-up you had. The vegan food you had are awesome as well as the pictures taken. Were you at San Francisco for a sort of vegan adventure, tasting and exploring everything vegan?
