left coast food & juice.

okay, i promised this week would be a good one ... let me tell you, it is. i'm officially beyond obsessed with left coast food & juice on lincoln ave. in lakeview.

since california food is some of my favorite food, i've been to left coast 5 times now. (yes, you read that right.) ... every time, it's delicious! my goal is to try all the vegan options on the menu. so far, i've tried 4, because i had to have the avocado toast twice. so good.

okay, before we dive into the eats, here's a bit about left coast : "we bring flavorful & progressive recipes to not only healthy food, but also chef-driven, cold-pressed juices & delicious smoothies." i've clearly already gotten on board with this. your turn!

here's what i had (in order of first visit to most recent) ...

kale mary smoothie :
blueberry, kale, avocado, oj, macca powder, agave, apple cider vinegar. 
any excuse for a selfie ... plus the smoothie was awesome. 

left coast acai bowl :
acai berries, blueberries, raspberries, banana, almond butter, macca powder, hemp seeds granola. 
this was my first smoothie bowl! i was pretty excited ... it's perfect for a hot day & also, just so pretty. 

robust rosa :
kale, spinach, roasted broccoli, roasted tomato, red onion, toasted hemp seeds, avocado caesar dressing + tofu.
green, check. leafy, check. tasty, check. 

hermosa avocado toast :
toasted semolina bread, avocado, mojo rojo, red onion, fresh basil + tofu. 
i pretty much live for good avocado toast. this version is on point. plus added tofu for, ya know, protein. 

easy street wrap :
tofu, brown rice, roasted carrots, pickled sultanas, smoked almonds, arugula, red onion, madras curry sauce & whole wheat wrap. 
like a vegan curry chicken salad wrap! more, please. 

holy moly, that was a lot. but honestly, isn't all of it just so delectable-looking? food that looks fresh, tastes fresh, is fresh. so many thumbs up. and it doesn't stop there ... i'm scheduled to go back tomorrow for lunch w/ my mom & le bébé. see ya on instagram!
