A Healthy Guide to New York City

healthy-food-guide-new-york

I wish I could live in New York for the summer; the city is perfect for a couple of months: there’s so much to do and most importantly, so much to eat!

Instead of searching for the best bagels, pizza, and street-food in New York City, I’m usually on the hunt for trendy healthy spots. It’s so satisfying finding food that is yummy AND good for you.

I barely scratch the surface with this list but hopefully it gives you an idea of a few places to check out next time you’re in the city. If you live there, I would love suggestions for future visits!

Where to eat in New York City:

Two Hands Cafe: I was walking to work one day and stumbled upon Two Hands cafe. Their bowls and breakfast items are made for Instagram and their waiters are pretty cute :).

The Butcher’s Daughter: A open and airy juice shop and cafe. I’ve only tried their juices but they were delicious.

Van Leeuwen Ice Cream: All right ice cream may not be the healthiest option out there but I was so excited to find a place with good vegan ice cream. I tried their vegan dark chocolate ice cream with vegan chocolate syrup and it tasted heavenly!

By CHLOE: I was blown away by how busy this restaurant gets. No matter at what time you go, there is a line out the door. The avocado pesto pasta & mac and cheese were good but what really hit the spot were the vegan desserts. I’ll definitely come back when I’m craving cupcakes!

Hu Kitchen: Paleo-friendly casual dining spot with snacks, meals, and juices. I’ve tried the almond crusted chicken and chia seed pudding and enjoyed them both.

Can someone send me back to New York please? I would really love some vegan ice cream right about now!
