Y’all I’m feeling a bit slow after the past two weekends. I had so much visiting friends in Atlanta and Washington, DC, but definitely drank too much wine and ate way too biscuits. I eat fairly healthfully throughout the work week and go to the gym 4-5 times a week but even with that I’ve noticed that I’ve been bloated and tired in the mornings, which in itself is motivation to eat healthier!
And we all know that a well-stocked kitchen is a happy kitchen!
There’s honestly nothing better on a winter day than a hot bowl of ramen. The combination of noodles, crunchy vegetables, and a thick broth is exactly what you need when you can’t feel your toes and want to gear up for the cold with a full belly. Which was exactly what I needed the other weekend when Matt and I were walking around the Lower East Side and it just randomly started snowing!!
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? I love eating and cooking so you might think that I’d have to think about that for a minute but, without a doubt, I’d pick Sugarfish’s “Trust Me” menu.
I’m a huge sushi fan and eat it at least once or twice a week, but the only other time I’ve had such fresh fish was when I was in Maui last year which is saying something considering that I was smack dab in the Flatiron district and not anywhere near the ocean. Plus Sugarfish offers a different sushi experience than I’ve ever experienced before by serving their sushi rice warm! Which you wouldn’t think would make a big difference but the warm rice made it seem as if the sushi was melting in your mouth.
I don’t like tacos… said no Juan ever!
Do y’all want to know how I found out about Nickel & Diner (and a lot of the other restaurants I’ve been to in New York City)? I literally googled “cool brunch spots in NYC” one day during my lunch break and hit the jackpot. I usually rely heavily on Instagram for foodie advice but I decided to take a chance on a random Refinery29 article I found, and we were not disappointed!
If you had seen how much bacon I ate this weekend (hint: too much), you would never know that I had been a semi-pescetarian for over 10 years. I still don’t eat much red meat nowadays, and prefer to stick with locally sourced meats, so I always enjoy finding yummy new vegetarian restaurants while in New York City. Which worked out well the other weekend for both my sister and I since she’s a pretty strict vegetarian.
After a little research, I picked out by CHLOE for our first meal together in the city and we were not disappointed by all of the hype!
