I found the lines on the Red Solo cup very useful! Am I the only one who didn't know this before?
What will you be using your Red Solo Cup for next?
Yesterday I checked out the Liberty Bar on 35th Street between 5th and 6th. This is painfully close to my office so I was psyched when a cool bar finally emerged in the death trap of horribly annoying tourists that typically surround me.
The Liberty is not just your average watering hole, they also serve haute bar food in addition to a large menu of classic cocktails. They also have a good wine selection that won't break the bank (They have a Merlot for 8 and a Malbec for 9). Overall it is a great addition to the horrendous Herald Square nightmare.
The space is open and airy with an enormous 34-foot bar at its hub. With old-fashion drinks a-plenty you'll certainly need some snacks. Luckily they have amazing options like tempura green beans with sriracha mayo, duck-fat fries (I didn't sample, obv), and the most amazing warm olives I've ever tasted. Perfect bar snacks! And when I'm not being healthy I am definitely coming back for the Grass-fed Organic Burger! YUM! I've been searching for grass-fed beef for a year!
As far as Herald Square is concerned, give me The Liberty, or give me Death!
Headed to the movies this weekend to see that summer blockbuster and think about having some popcorn or treats is innocent snacking? According to celebrity nutritionist and author of The Beauty Detox Solution Kimberly Snyder, think again! As you’ll see below, these snacks can massively sabotage your weight loss efforts. Movie snacks are high in calories, bad fat, sodium and more.
Be sure to go to the movies after eating, so you are less tempted to binge. If you love your movie treats, carry in a bar of organic dark chocolate (at least 72% cacao) in your pocket or purse, so you can have a few squares, and not eat the expensive candy that is sold at the theaters.
Vegan Shop Up was so fun! Got to sample delish treats from 30 different Vegan vendors. Some of them were awful I must say and give vegan cooking a bad name but we found some amazing ones like Chickpea and Olive, and Heirloom Vegan Eatery. But yuck had some really icky nauseating vegan cake batter ice cream from Wink frozen desserts. Even the though of it conjures up nauseation. You live, you learn.
Anyway, I had the most amazing Veggie burger in the world. I swear to everyone it tastes exactly like a real burger. It even looked like one. They use beets and it looks like its medium rare! Then they topped it with Daiya cheese and pickled jalapeños. Absolute perfection.
You can find them at Smorgasborg in Williamsburg every Saturday this summer (except the next two weekends). Unbelievable. Well worth the trip! You can get two sliders for 12 bucks.
Unreal. My pic doesn’t do it justice. I got so excited to eat it that I forgot to capture it in all it’s glory before we demolished it.
