Hey guys! I know it's been a while, but here are some of my eats over the past week (which includes a scathing review of a popular veggie restaurant-- sorry, but I had to do it!).
I tried giving the Van's cinnamon gluten-free french toast sticks another go...
But sadly they were still pretty tasteless with a weird texture. So this was a "no go" for sure!
Luckily their mini chocolate chip waffles were a winner though! :)
Alright, so last Monday I decided to try 'Snice in the West Village (on 8th Ave. at West 4th St.) because I've always heard pretty good things, but had never gotten over there before. I ordered their tofu scramble wrap...
Ok, so this was an ENORMOUS disappointment. And I'm a HUGE fan of tofu scrambles... everything from Amy's frozen ones to the one at Blossom's restaurant, etc. But this was a disaster. Absolutely NO taste. It was so bad I actually got up and left! And I NEVER do this. It was a waste of $6. Especially since nearly every restaurant in the West Village is fabulous... I certainly won't be going back and do NOT recommend this place.
Speaking of Amy's tofu scrambles... I actually came home and made my own lunch of an Amy's tofu pocket scramble, along with a cheese stick and a Mott's peach medley apple sauce (by then I was starving!).
This week I went to the new Limelight Marketplace on 6th Ave. (and 20th St.). They basically took a church and turned it into a mall... Very strange and I wonder if Jesus would approve?! LOL But it's up the block from me none the less, so I had to check it out!
I took a good look around, wasn't impressed (it's more like a rat's maze if you ask me!). However, they did have an awesome sweets section, including the Cupcake Stop. (There are several locations in the city, one is inside the new market.) I got a cookie dough cupcake. This was awesome, and they have so many unique flavors, I'll definitely be back! :)
Today I ran some errands in Union Square and stopped in a nearby Starbucks. I got their protein plate which includes a mini bagel, peanut butter, apple slices, cheese, grapes, and a hard-boiled egg.
While it sounds like a lot, they actually give you very little of everything. I used to get this lunch all the time at the Starbucks in Soho by the school I used to go to. It was better quality then, but it's still a good pick-me-up!
As for Peanut, I got a few pics of him on the top of the laundry today! :)
I told him he looks like a lion on top of the pride! lol
I hope everyone is having a nice weekend! I just wish I could get more sleep on mine. :(
