The biggest challenge with our juice fast was getting juice when we were away from home. Juice loses much of it’s oomph if not consumed immediately, so a google search with home and work zip codes gave us places to continue juicing fresh away from our own kitchen.
With the search, I am very happy to have found a great cafe very close to home – Down To Earth Cafe in Multnomah Village. They have a menu of delicious fresh juice blends, and we agreed to return post fast. For breakfast.
We started with juice, of course.
Jason’s was this bold, bright beauty called the Down to Earth Medley – apple, beet, carrot and ginger. A classic we make at home often.
I chose the wonderfully rich Drink Your Veggies and Fruit - carrot, apple, lemon, spinach, pineapple and walnuts. Inventive and tasty!
We both chose the Vegan Breakfast Burrito - tortilla filled with tofu scrambled with potatoes, red onions, green peppers and tomatoes; topped with avocado and served with salsa.
This was incredible. Savory, satisfying and wholesome. There are a few tasty vegan choices on the menus, although I could see myself ordering this exact dish again and again.
I was happy.
Was I just trying not to think of the marionette in the corner?
Creepy – I am not a fan.
A tasty break fast in more ways than one! Perfect after a fun night out the prior evening, complete with three stamps leaving me looking tattooed:
I am happy this is so close to our neighborhood – we will definitely be semi regulars. I want to return for breakfast lunch and dinner.
Do you have many organic, vegan and vegetarian choices at restaurants in your area?
Do you like marionettes?
