You probably know already that I live pretty close to Santa Barbara, and that’s the “big city” for me whenever I have to see a doctor or anything that requires non-rural living. Alan had to go there early, early on Monday morning for something so I tagged along. The sun wasn’t even up yet when I prepared breakfast:
He had overnight oats (pictured in the back) and I had chia/buckwheat groat pudding (mixed with defrosted wild blueberries) topped with a drizzle of molasses and a strong cup of black tea:
His meeting was finished early, so we hit the Santa Barbara pier to stretch our legs (gotta get my Fitbit steps!) and soak up some sunshine:
It must have been 70 degrees at 9:30 a.m. which isn’t unheard of for winter in California:
Santa Barbara holds a special place in my heart (got married there, worked there, plus it’s insanely beautiful):
I tried to visit my friend Sayward’s store, but I was such an early bird that it wasn’t open yet. Next time…it looked so cute and friendly from the outside!
I had to make a pit stop at Peet’s for some green tea and a rest:
Plus, a visit to the Santa Barbara Public Market which is kind of like a miniature version of San Francisco’s Ferry Building where I was two weeks ago:
Around brunch/lunch time, Alan and I hit an old fave where we haven’t been since we changed our diet…Jeannine’s Bakery. I had a salad with tomatoes, mandarin oranges, candied walnuts, avocado, and grilled chicken with a gluten-free corn muffin on the side:
After such a busy morning, we both started to fade fast, so we headed home. Dinner included leftovers with rice, broccoli, sardines, and peanut butter:
Dessert was a ripe banana and sunflower seed butter:
That’s it for my What I Ate Wednesday round-up. See you soon!
