In The City + Forty Carrots + Chinese on Christmas

I hope everyone is enjoying this time of year when no one knows exactly what day it is!

I’ve been in the city a few times over the last week. It’s always a fun time of year to be there, and, I would say it felt like pre-pandemic times. Streets and stores were packed!


While walking out of Saks and trying to avoid crowds, I found myself looking at the tree. It’s like an, “oh ha, there’s the tree” moment when this happens.

I went to Bloomingdale’s in the city twice in the last week.

Last week while in Bloomingdale’s, I was in the mood for a giant yogurt from Forty Carrots.

Forty Carrots puts the toppings in the middle of the cup so you can’t see the gold-dusted chocolate chips.


My Forty Carrots frozen yogurt resembles the Stoney Clover Forty Carrots patch, just without the sprinkles.

My friend from work moved into a new apartment (near Bloomingdales) so we spent some time there with her friends before heading to dinner. This is the same friend who has the NYC Pizza Tour so it was fun to chat with them about their next pizza stops!


I had this vegetable omelet at Second Avenue Deli. They have such great latkes at Second Avenue Deli but I couldn’t eat another one right now. I’ve had so many recently!


Dinner at The Cheesecake Factory is a tradition on Christmas Eve, although the tradition was interrupted by the pandemic. I think last year we did take out.


Look what I ate yet again! My toasted whole wheat English muffin with mashed avocado and egg combination!

I actually made the side salad bigger than planned but I ate everything on the plate. I had this after yoga on Sunday. It really hit the spot.


Chinese food on Christmas: Steamed vegetable dumplings, mixed vegetables in garlic sauce, and brown rice.

Another fun day in the city on Monday!

I was shopping at Bloomingdales and Saks, with lunch at Bloomingdales. No frozen yogurt this time! I think this was the Forty Carrots Chopped Salad, without chicken.


And finally, I ordered this salad combo from Sweet Green and really liked it. My only complaint is the price — it’s way too expensive if you ask me!

In the salad:

  • Romaine
  • Tomatoes
  • Beets
  • Avocado
  • Quinoa
  • Warm Mushroom Medley
  • Spicy Broccoli
  • Green Goddess Ranch
