Hello there! This could be a looooong post so I’m going to try to keep it brief as I recap the last 2days – I’ve been extra hungry so there’s been a lot of food! 🙂 I’m going to focus just on eats.
For yesterday’s [Tuesday] train breakfast I ate a almond sample and a Soy Joy Apple bar.
I actually got this free in the park after SWITP. It was very very tasty but I was surprised to see so much dairy (butter, parmesan cheese?!) in a SOY bar.
For lunch I packed a small apple,
a Nacy’s Strawberry Yogurt,
and an Ooba.
I love mixing jam into yogurt so I liked the idea of Nancy’s yogurt. It was good, but better in theory, it ended up being a little sweet. I think that is because I’m usually mixing into Greek yogurt which has more of a tang. Ooba rocked my socks! Jenna posted about this a while back and I’ve been jealous for months – when I saw it in a store here I practically peed my pants! It was every bit as good as imagined – sweet without beeing too sweet, perfectly fizzy.
I was starving and lunch didn’t even make a dent so I ended up getting a single serving of Cheez-Its and a Strawberry Rice Crispies Treat out of the vending machine.
After school I rushed to the train to head to Manhattan. My exciting event was the FoodBuzz 1millionth post celebration at David Burke Townhouse. I got there a little early so I made a few fun Manhattan stops. I stopped in at Dylans and bought A a gift.
And I got a machta energy boost from Jamba Juice.
Then I headed over to the amazing, astonishing, fabulous, fantastic David Burke Townhouse. I’m going to say in advance that my pictures (grainy and blury because of bad light) don’t even begin to do the food or decor justice. The restraunt is modern American and the decorating is egg-cellent.
There were a lot of people at the event – food buzz staff and bloggers – and I had some really great conversations. I got a chance to hang out with Missy, Vani, Sarah, and Diana which was fun and I met Melanie for the first time. I also spotted an instructor from SWITP and had a long conversation with her!
There were several bars around the restaurant and they had Prosecco (one of my favorites) and fabulous signature lychee martinis. I had one of each.
In the back room tables of food were set up that blew my mind:
There was crab and tuna sushi, oysters, crab legs, HUGE prawns, lobster, and more. Waiters were also walking around with trays of hot food. Lobster was everywhere and the egg theme was continued in a truely impressive way. Everything was basically bite-sized. Here is what I ate:
crab leg, tuna sushi
prawn, chicken dumpling (I actually had one more unpictured dumpling too, ask me about the dumpling tomorrow, I have a story)
lox, cracker, creme fresh
chicken and shrimp sate
best crab cake ever
crab leg, tuna sushi
After dinner waiters came around with trays of amazing desserts. Diana and I were laughing that no matter how full we were we would eat if something new came by (and I did!) Here are my dessert eats, also all bite-sized:
strawberry cheesecake pop
butterscotch panna cotta
chocolate cheesecake pop
donut thing – bombolini
grapefruit bar (I wanted to love this – gold dust! – but I actually spit this out!)
Also, instead of mints at the door they had peanut brittle!
The even was 5-7 but I actually didn’t leave until close to 7:20 – I had a great time, thank you so much FoodBuzz!
It took me a long time to get home and an even longer time to wait for A to get home from the city and I ended up being hungry before bedtime! I was super classy and and this turkey cheddar Lunchable.
I also had Picnic bar (with peanuts and raisins!), my treat from Dylans.
This morning I ate my EAS sample bar for train breakfast.
And for lunch I packed the rest of the blackberries,
and this strawberry yogurt.
This True yogurt was vegan and very tasty, I loved the chunks of real strawberry!
After school my insane hunger continued so I had several snacks. I started by making lunch for tomorrow out of this stuff.
*Note1, I bought Weight Watchers Mexican because it was on sale, my suggestion for the recipe is sharp cheddar. Note2, I ate about 1/3C of cheese while I was cooking.
Pimento Shmento Spread, serves 2 (x’s amounds as needed)
- 1/3 C small chopped roasted red pepper – about 1 pepper, I patted mine dry with papertowl
- 2/3C shredded reduced fat cheddar
- 2t plain nonfat yogurt
Stir gently to combine.
I ate one serving on a serving of Doctor Kracker Fire Roasted Crisps.
I microwaved it for 30seconds – ooooh, melty! – and ate with a small apple.
I also had a 1/2C serving of Kashi Heart to Heart Blueberry with unsweetened almond milk,
and a spoonful of pb (I told you I was hungry!)
Then I met A at the gym. When I got there I really wasn’t feeling it, today left me in a really bad mood, but I am so glad that I stuck it out! I did a 10minute run on the treadmilll. Then 10minutes on the stairstepper at level 9; I didn’t love this, I wasn’t sure whether I was supposed to be staying “up” or let the pedals go to the bottom. Plus I couldn’t balance without holding on and I know that decreases your actual work out. Next I did 20minutes of arms on the weight machines, and finished up with 10minutes of abs and stretching on the mat.
When I got home I ate 1serving of jalopeno poppers,
this dark chocolate flower from Godiva (from the Always Infinity event),
and finally this frozen pad thai.
In and of its self it was ok, but this was the worst frozen pad thai I’ve ever had.
Also today, I wrote my plans for next week! I’m ready for bed. Sorry for the long/quick post, love ya!
