WIAW: New York Edition


It’s time for another What I Ate Wednesday friends!!  This week’s is a New York edition!
I think my favorite meal of the NYC trip was the Indian food that we had the first day we were here.  I’m totally going to be re-creating it when I get home!
This isn’t all of the food we ate over the last few days, but it’s quite a bit of it!  Here are a few of the highlights…


We stopped at Ess-A-Bagel twice for breakfast on our trip!  OMG so good!

They had a tofu cream cheese that was fabulous- so much better than the tofu cream cheese that I usually get at home.  This first day I got an everything bagel with 1/2 vegetable cream cheese and 1/2 herbed cream cheese.  The second time we went I got a pumpernickel bagel with 1/2 vegetable cream cheese and 1/2 walnut raisin cream cheese (I forgot to take a picture of this one- I was starving!).  And I am now in love with pumpernickel!

Lena.  It was kind of chipotle-esque.  I got a wrap with black beans, avocado, grilled corn, lettuce, and pico de gallo.  I just thought it was ehh.  The wrap wasn’t great so I ended up dumping it out on my plate and eating it like a salad.  The rest of the girls really seemed to enjoy their salads though, so maybe it was just my food?

Sooooo much coffee was consumed on this trip!!!!



You’ve heard of PB&Co, yes??  Did you know that they have a café in NYC?  Did you know that they make amazing PBJs??  Yes, we totally ate PBJs while in NYC!!

Before we left we had to visit Babycakes!

I really really wish I could say that it was amazing.  It was good, don’t get me wrong, but it wasn’t as amazing as I expected it to be.  I got a carrot cupcake and a cookie sandwich.  I haven’t had the cookie sandwich yet so I will reserve my judgment until I’ve tried it.  The cake in the cupcake was super moist and delicious- I think I just wasn’t in love with the frosting.


And the last stop of the Sarah Snacks NYC food adventure is Chickpea.  This was my favorite stop!!!  Their falafels were baked, not fried.  And they stuff it in a whole wheat pita, you get your choice of hummus and toppings and a little tahini on top.  DELICIOUS!!!  We really need one of these in TX!

Well, our trip to NYC has come to an end! Sad smile

Michelle and Rachel headed home for Philly and Boston, respectively and we miss them so much!  Laura and I are stuck at the airport still- our flight is delayed.

We’re about to start clicking our heels together and saying “there’s no place like home…”


Living it up in NYC!

Hey y’all!  We’re in NYC and totally having a blast!!!

I’ll be talking about food in my What I Ate Wednesday post, so I thought I’d just post some fun walking around pics today!

The weather was seriously gorgeous (like in the lower 80’s) so we decided to go for a walk around central park.  It was so beautiful!!!

Yesterday was full of sessions on writing a better recipe, a session on action mantras (by a really awesome RD- this was my favorite thing about the whole summit!), and eating healthy while traveling.

Lunch sandwiches- p.s. the great harvest bread is the BEST bread I’ve ever had.  Seriously.

Don’t ask.  I don’t know what we were thinking.

Then we packed it up and hopped a train to NYC!!!!  Me, Laura, Rachel, and Michelle are hitting up the big apple.

Indian food has been had (Channa Masala and Naan) and naps have been taken.





And now we’re trying to decide what to do tonight!

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend!
