I LOVE a good grab and go – and thankfully here in NYC we’ve got PLENTY!
We all know time is not always on our sides. So, to make healthy eating a little easier, I want to share some of my favorite NYC grab and go options with you to help when you’re in a pinch!
Here it is, Isabel’s NYC grab and go list:
Here’s what I’m eating: Usually I can be found ordering a bowl with a base of greens plus 2 veggies (broccoli, kale), and their roasted chicken – though the salmon, meatballs and roasted chicken are good too
Here’s what I’m eating: root veggie mash with either roasted chicken or salmon, plus usually two roasted veggies (cauliflower and broccoli); but I also love their simple salads- kale and apple salad OR the charred avocado
Here’s what I’m eating: Obsessed with the cauliflower rice option here so that’s always a must. I also love the truffle avocado roll, mushroom roll (their veggie based rolls in general are BOMB), and for the fish based rolls- yellowtail scallion, snow crab and salmon maki.
Made Nice NYC:
Here’s what I’m eating:I love their creative menus and bowls. I usually order the kelp noodle salad with chicken or kale and avocado salad with protein (chicken or salmon!)
What I’m eating: This is also a fun and creative spot here in NYC! I love the vegan delight bowl with chicken or shrimp on the side. I also love the Wild Salmon Filet bowl, and Sweet Salmon Omakase Bowl. Honestly, all their stuff is awesome.
What I’m eating: this is a new find for me and one I’m psyched about because it’s YUM! I usually order a ½ chicken (for leftovers, duh!) and have it with the cauliflower rice and dirty mushroom sides. They’re well sourced and local and you know I love that.
SMOOTHIES AND THINGS:
Here’s what I’m getting: JP is my main squeeze (pun intended!) for smoothies and things, I just love their stuff and it’s organic, which I feel good about. I also love the Green Light Smoothie (added protein), Nurse Ginger Green Smoothie (added protein), Fountain of Youth Smoothie, and Clean Green Protein Smoothie.
GLUTEN FREE BAKERIES:
Growing up when written phone books were a thing my father always had a bakery list in every state (I kid you not!). I only have one here, because they’re the best:
Here’s what I’m getting: Everything is great! We really love the chocolate cake, carrot cake, double chocolate cookies, macaroons… it’s ALL good.
MORE DESSERT SPOTS:
We need two spots for the desserts, of course!
A few other spots I love:
Levain Bakery (nothing gluten free here friends!)
