After writing my last post, I went out for a short walk to get to know Visalia: a small, old fashion town!
and then we head over to the finest restaurant in the area called The Vintage Press. It has about 40 years old, family owned, with antique decorations and fabulous meal.
our menu with POM as a key ingredient
the owner and the chef of this place explaining the menu to us
we start with some appetizers and this amazing bread that Gina and I couldn’t resist to get back to it along the whole meal~~~
a green salad
our appetizer: wild mushroom with puff pastry
Jeff @POM gave us a talk about why we’re here and how they pick us! The BIG question that everyone seems to have in mind.
I would say, it was the most touching moment of this trip! I am impressed by the philosophy of this company, their willingness to help people to get healthier by investing $32 millions on research, on organizing/attending events about wellness, on getting a group of bloggers who might not be the most popular ones in the blog world (like me) but has something to say, to show others how a healthy lifestyle is POSSIBLE to everyone! I love their way of seeing this: the best way to teach, help and affect someone else’s life is by showing them our own lifestyle! Do not jeopardize and criticize others “unhealthy” lifestyle, show them what’s a healthy lifestyle looks like and how easy is to achieve! It was a mind opening moment for my “blog career”! I was blogging for me and for fun and wasn’t aware that by doing what I could help others. Thanks Jeff and Andrea for letting me know a “gift” that blog gave me, to help people!!! 😆 (seriously, I was really touched!)
Okay. continuing with the yummy food. Everything on the menu sound really good, it was a hard decision. After debating, I opted salmon and it did not disappoint me.
this is the quinoa plate. look this mini baked squash… so cute! I had few bites of it
Dessert was the BEST sorbet I’ve ever had!!!
made with POM obviously
finally, some shots of us all dressed up for the occasion 😉

more pics to come lateR! 🙂
Today we’re going to POM’s plant to see how juice is made. From what I heard so far… it is really impressive! Really? I’m already very IMPRESSED by them. I can’t imagine how much more I can get impressed. 😕 but I totally believe Andrea and Jeff. 😀
