Sticking to healthy on vacation isn’t easy, and it’s especially tricky when you’re really trying to not be “that person” who won’t do anything fun because they’re “watching what they’re eating”.
I’m not going to add up all the calories and stuff, since I’m showing you some random meals from different days. I did try to sneak in healthy food while tasting my way through the city. Please note that fro yo, wine, and macaroni and cheese were all consumed on this trip, but those pictures weren’t anything special!
So this is the What I Ate Wednesday: New York Edition
I got to meet Meredith from Dare You To (how gorgeous is she?!) and we took a trip to the Chobani store. It was amazing! I had a bowl of greek goodness topped with pistachios, chocolate, orange, and agave. It was super creamy and delicious. It was so much fun chatting with Meredith about blogging, food, and life in general! Why have I never put pistachios in my yogurt? New thing to try.
We stopped by the Smorgasburg festival in Brooklyn and I tried everything. From second row: Soy Hound Soymilk, McClures Spicy Pickles, and some kind of coffee infused chocolate which was amazing. For my actual lunch, I got some of this quinoa falafel, which was absolutely amazing. I have to try making falafel with quinoa…
We went to a little cafe called Once Upon a Tart and it was so adorable. I had a tomato and mozzarella sandwich, served with a lentil and feta salad. I forgot how much I love lentils! And obviously I’m still obsessed with feta. I need to recreate this salad.
And just to prove that I did take pictures of people… here are some favorites from the trip!
