Saturday Snoozeday: San Francisco edition

Today wasn't much of a Snoozeday! The wonders of jet lag had me up and raring to go at 6:30am, but I'm not complaining because we're in San Francisco! Yay!

We headed to The Plant for breakfast because it was one of the only places in the area that was open early. I ordered the Basil Pesto Tofu Scramble which comes with potatoes, wholewheat sourdough toast and fruit.


I really loved the scramble, the tofu was kinda shredded rather than mashed or in chunks which was both interesting and delicious. I'll be trying this technique at home for sure. It was also full of tasty basil and tomatoes, yum. I love carbs so getting both potatoes and toast was always gonna be a win but I hate melon which made up over half of the fruit on the plate.

After breakfast we wandered around the Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building and found Pepple's Donuts, I'd heard of this all vegan Oakland based donut co' before but I was surprised and excited by the amount of variety at their small stall. I picked up two donuts, salt caramel and chocolate cookie.


I ate the chocolate cookie donut almost immediately, the inside was chocolate too and the delicious chocolate glaze on the outside had just the right amount of sweetness. There was also a great looking juice place next to Pepple's which had 5 types of green juice as well as a tonne of fruity mixes. Hodo Soy also have a stand outside the building and we bought some delicious tofu egg salad from the rad dude manning the stall.

I'm gonna keep exploring the city now so I'll catch y'all tomorrow for Football Food Sunday!

  1. Oh my, that donut looks amazing! Donuts are the one thing I've craved ever since going vegan but I've not found one yet! I keep thinking I should try making them but then I worry they won't be right and I'll be disappointed so I procrastinate and make something else...

  11. Yeah! I love living vicariously through other people's fun trips! That breakfast looks so good! Oh, how I miss tofu scrambles. Melons are not my thing either. Watermelon is cool, but I don't care for any other melons.

    That looks like a monster sized doughnut! WANT!

    Have fun in San Francisco!

  15. Pepples doughnuts were the first doughnuts I ate in ten years when I was in SF in 2011. I got the cinnamon sugar doughnut, because that is what doughnuts mostly are in Australia, and it was a thing of beauty.
