I spent a fair amount of my time in The Oaks Gourmet Market during my visit to Los Angeles this weekend. Let me tell you what I ate from the market and you'll understand why my purse is full of receipts from the place:
1. A Liquid Garden Smoothie: carrot juice, beet juice, spinach, ginger, apples, almonds, honey, apple juice.
2. A carrot cupcake.
4. A Fresh Veggies on Cranberry-Walnut Toast sandwich: cucumber, avocado, shaved fennel, red onion, artichoke hearts, sprouts, chive cream cheese (hold the tomato, please).
5. A Cake Monkey Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Cakewich: yellow cake sandwich filled with peanut buttercream, housemade marshmallow & coated with bittersweet chocolate.
There are about three thousand other things I want to try, including this:
Gingersnap liquor. Serious regrets for not picking up a bottle when I had the chance.
