Foodies Let Loose

by jenna on November 7, 2009

Good morning from San Francisco!

Well, Kath and I woke up at the early hour of 5:30 this morning. She’s on east coast time and I… not. But, I got up anyways with her to seize the day. Actually, I wish I could just live with Kath because she always forces me to go be productive and hit the gym. Without her, I’d probably have just laid in bed and read blogs all morning. 😉

I ate half of the roll that Matt sent me as a thank-you for housing his wife tomorrow night in Healdsburg, straight from Great Harvest!!!


And then when the rest of the group went on their run, I went to the hotel gym and did a 20 minute lower body workout. There were jumping jacks involved, along with squats…awesome.

And then, at 9:00, we met in the lobby downstairs and walked across the street to the Ferry Building for good eats, strong coffee and farmer’s market galore!!

I had half of an baked egg and roasted pepper sandwich with fontina cheese. Delicious!


Chef Kevin said Blue Bottle coffee is the best coffee in the country so, naturally, we waited in the super long line to hit that up!!




Awwww HLS-2! :(


What could be better than being totally immersed in FOOD all morning??!










I couldn’t resist taking home these amazing beans!


Okay. Time for LUNCH!!!!

Those plums look so amazing and juicy!!!!
Looks like you all are having so much fun!


Katie November 7, 2009 at 12:34 pm

Yummy looking produce, looks like fun here in the midwest fresh produce is tough to find. So was it the best coffee?


Danielle November 7, 2009 at 12:44 pm

I LOVED the Ferry Building when my friends and I went to SF a few weeks ago for the Nike Women’s Marathon. I think it was actually one of my favorite places that we saw, aside from TJs – haha! I agree, Blue Bottle Coffee is AMAZING!

Hope you enjoyed the rest of your Saturday!

That egg sandwich looks delicious! I love fontina cheese. Looks like the Foodbuzz Festival is amazing! Enjoy! :)

Boy, do I miss San Francisco. If you see a clown walking around on stilts, that’s my very good friend, Evan. Tell him I said hi! Haha.

That farmer’s market looks outstanding, as do the beans you brought home. I bet your french press will be pleased with its new java.


candice November 7, 2009 at 12:54 pm

I’d go live with Kath for the oatmeal… 😉 That baked egg sandwich looks delicious! What does fontina cheese taste like?

Farmer’s markets are always so much fun. Love the hot chocolate and the winter squash!

Ah, San Fran looks so fun! I’ve only been once, kind of a drive through really during a college roadtrip..

Btw, where did you buy that grey vest? It’s so cute!


Abby (Abby's VeGaN Eats) November 7, 2009 at 1:24 pm

Looks amazing so far.. love your hat btw! Have a super time :)


Gabriela November 7, 2009 at 1:26 pm

YUM. Your blog always makes me want to move to CA! Cute shirt btw :) Enjoy the rest of your trip!


Janna (Just Flourishing) November 7, 2009 at 1:28 pm

It looks like you are having such a great time!

Lovely picture of the 4 of you!


Evan Thomas November 7, 2009 at 1:35 pm

That market looks awesome and fresh. We just had the last of the year in New England


BethT November 7, 2009 at 1:40 pm

Yay rancho gordo!!!


Paige (Running Around Normal) November 7, 2009 at 1:47 pm

That’s so nice you’re letting Kath stay with you:)

That Farmer’s Market looks awesome! Have fun!


Sarah (Finding My Balance) November 7, 2009 at 1:49 pm

Looks like you are having a ball! I hope the rest of the weekend is just as good!


Graze With Me November 7, 2009 at 2:03 pm

That breakfast sandwich looks incredible, have fun!


Jenny November 7, 2009 at 3:05 pm

That fresh made hot chocolate stand looks like the perfect drink :)


Jenna November 7, 2009 at 3:13 pm

the pics are great and your breaky looks so yummy.


Cynthia (It All Changes) November 7, 2009 at 3:22 pm

I always forget reading your posts that you are in a different time zone. Sure I know you are in California but it is weird to think of it only being around lunch where you are.

That sandwich looks great. Fontina is an amazing cheese and adding red pepper just makes anything better.


Lori November 7, 2009 at 3:24 pm

Looks like a really fun day! :-)


Ariffa November 7, 2009 at 3:29 pm

Hey Jenna! I some how managed to screw up my ankle this morning and while trying to push it through a nice long power walk, I figured I should stop before I made it worse. I know I should take it easy for the next week or so but I don’t want to stop exercising! Is there any cardio you think I can do without further screwing myself over? Since you’ve had your fair share of injuries I thought you’d be the perfect person to ask. Oh and I can’t swim, so that’s kind of out =( Thanks a lot, I adore your blog and I want to be like you when I grow up =))


Jessica @ How Sweet It Is November 7, 2009 at 3:30 pm

Wow, the farmers market looks amazing.


rhodeygirl November 7, 2009 at 4:12 pm

I wish now that I had gotten a bag of those beans too! But I know my auntie is going to love the Borlotti beans!!!

See you in an hour!


Jolene ( November 7, 2009 at 4:40 pm

I love the pics! That is awesome that you have Kath there to motivate you – I wish someone motivated me in the morning!


maria November 7, 2009 at 5:11 pm

I would have waited in line for the coffee, too! Don’t blame you a bit. And the fresh produce looks so good!


Suzie November 7, 2009 at 5:27 pm

Please tell me the roll you ate was not sitting on the hotel comforter.


Suzanne de Cornelia November 7, 2009 at 5:41 pm

Am laughing hysterically over ‘Suzie’s #29 comment above.’
FYI, money and hotel comforters test 75% positive for un-foody things like fecal matter.

Anyway—Great Pix! Got my hometown SF fix! LOVE the Ferry Building/ Farmer’s Market. Thanks!!

You guys look so healthy and happy! Take a bite for all of us!


Nicole November 7, 2009 at 11:33 pm

Seriously, every single time I look at yours or Tina’s pics, I am breathless. I need to get a new camera, ASAP!!


Julie November 10, 2009 at 10:19 am

OMG! Please tell me you bought those beans! They are the best brand I’ve ever tried!
