o (1)

Hey BRAH! I found another good spot to get in some excellent BRO-TEIN when trying to eat clean and healthy!

When you are pumping the iron your GUNS need PROTEIN to rebuild massive muscle BRO! Mammoth amounts of PROTEIN, wrapped in PROTEIN, and then even more PROTEIN. Dude, it’s all about the BRO-TEIN!!!

Hellz yeah! I am so stoked to have stumbled upon this Fuel Grill & Juice Bar location recently after a night hanging out in the Hells Kitchen NYC area. After some bar hopping and debauchery I needed a fix of BRO-TEIN to replentish my depleted massiveness BRAH!

FUEL is a tiny little place with a few tables to sit at but they pack a pretty large menu of low-fat, low-carb, healthy, and vegan choices to choose from. Wraps, Salads, Energy Plates, Low-Carb Energy Plates, Smoothies, Shakes, Fresh Squeezed Juices, Sandwiches, Salads with lite/fat-free dressing, Low-Carb/High Fiber, and All Day Breakfast! There are so many ways to get in your BRO-TEIN! Dude – they even had a lage flat sceen showing It’s a Charlie Brown Christmas when I feasted here. That BRO is still the man! He needs to lift though and lay the smack down on Lucy. Just Sayin’. Continue reading Hey BRAH! Get your BRO-TEIN at Fuel Grill & Juice Bar NYC!

There’s no meat in that? Really? It’s vegan? C’mon, you’re kidding. OMG this tastes amazing – like a party in my mouth!

That is what was going through my mind as I devoured the Seitan Chimichurri. It has this smoky flaver and slightly burnt edges as if cooked right on the bar-b-que. I could have sworn it was a meat product as it had great texture and substance. Served on skewers like a shishkabob. After this wonder I knew we were in for a treat. I had no clue that going meatless could be so tasty, but Candle Cafe on the Upper East Side of NYC enlightened me as to what delicious vegan cooking can be!

Now let me proclaim that I am a meat eater. I absolutely love love love steak, chicken, bacon, etc. If it moo’s I will eat it! But lately I feel a need to broaden my food horizon and try some healthier options. So here I was in a vegan restaurant. Continue reading Meatless? Me? Vegan delights at the Candle Cafe in NYC!

Maoz Vegetarian NYC. When my body needs a healthy break!

l (2)

I finally popped my Maoz cherry! So many times I walked by this place down in Union Square NYC, saw all the rave reviews on Yelp, but did not drop in to try it out. It was my first time yesterday for lunch and discovered a terrific falafel sandwich and sweet potato fries! Hot damn this was good. My taste buds approved of this healthier option that I was putting into my mouth. Yummers!

Sure, it’s not too often that I write about the healthier eats in and around NYC but at times I need to give my overtaxed digestive system a break. A meatless lunch. No bacon. No nitrates. Nothing that moos or oinks. Consider it a sort of cleansing. My body thanks me. My intestinal tract thanks me. My butthole thanks me.

Getting all fizzy in NYC! The Pure Fizz by Mastrad.

The Pure Fizz – so easy!

One of the fun perks of having a blog are the opportunities to receive invites to events and new product launches. Residing in NYC offers many chances to experience these types of gatherings as it is the media capital and many PR agencies reside here, or come here to gain plentiful exposure. One event I was recently invited to was to sample a new home soda maker that is hitting the market in July. It’s always fun to check out a new product before the public gets a chance to see it, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with this one. The company is called Mastrad and their product is the Pure Fizz soda maker. They are a leading company based in Paris, France, and offer many kitchen specific products for both amateur and pro use.

 

The event took place at the stylish and chic Eventi Hotel in midtown Manhattan. We were led to a suite converted into a showcase for the Pure Fizz and also for many of Mastrad’s line of kitchenware offerings. They manufacture a variety of fun and functional products for those who are into cooking and baking. We were able to test some out and I will admit to liking their design and ease of use. Great tools for those who enjoy being in the kitchen, and for those of us who live in small NYC apartments and have limited storage space. Continue reading Getting all fizzy in NYC!
