Hi friends! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! <3
Catching up on the blogworld?
–I’m in NYC! (apparently home of the Naked Cowboy)
-Took my first Physique 57 class, which made my legs beg for mercy
The food is raw, fresh and beautifully presented. Everything that I could wish for
We shared the raw cheese and cracker plate with blueberries and rosemary crisps.
Even though they’re nut-based, raw cheeses taste remarkably like the real thing and the rosemary crisps are perfect.
I also got a Master Cleanse Tini (with lemon, cayenne, maple syrup, sake and ginger)
For the entrée, I was so stoked to try the S&M salad. It isn’t on the menu (it’s a One Lucky Duck item, which is owned by the same company and is takeout-only, next door), but they said they’d be happy to make me one. I’ve only had it homemade and the PFW version was even better than I thought it would be
The salad was HUGE too. Definitely qualified as a salad beast
Gabriela and I also shared the raw tamales, which I ordered last time I went to Pure Food and Wine:
The *masa* is made of cashews and corn, with pico de gallo, cashew sour cream, mole sauce and guacamole. Amazing.
And as if things couldn’t get any better….
We ordered different desserts and shared bites. I can’t even tell you which one was the best… I loved them all.
I chose the salted caramel chocolate tart:
The outside part of the tart was slightly crunchy, like a chewy cookie and the inner part was soft and gooey. It was served with a caramel sauce and a coconut mousse with cacao nibs and maple sugar. I die.
and Katie chose the pumpkin cheesecake parfait.
LOVE how they served it in a wine glass!!
It was an amazing dinner and it was such a blasty chatting with the girls
After Gabriela hailed a cab for me –I wasn’t quite sure how to do it, haha- I came back to the hotel and crashed into a raw food baby slumber.
This morning, I’m off to be trained by two celebrity trainers!! Not gonna lie, I’m a little nervous, but way excited to learn some new tricks. I’ll be filming all of it on the Flip, too
See ya later today!
Something to talk about: Which dish are you most excited about making this Thanksgiving? I can’t wait to make a gluten-free version of my stuffing recipe and a raw pumpkin pie- I think the fam will love them.
