April 2011, Healdsburg, CA
For my birthday this year, Luke took me on a positively sybaritic trip to Healdsburg where we ate and slept like royalty.
But in between checking out of our first hotel and driving to an airfield for a gliding experience, I insisted on getting a quick bite at a well-known vegan cafe I read about while doing research about raw diets. I ordered the “I Am Whole” bowl, which contained brown rice, sea vegetables, kale, kimchi, carrots and sprouts doused with a sesame ginger dressing, and it was SUBLIME. Luke was extremely dismayed.
