Since Lauren is off enjoying the sunshine state, it’s Carolyn, back again! 

So, the holidays are in full swing, and I’ve seen a motivation shift with clients recently. We had a wave of new clients who were ready to get started between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year (usually our slower season), and we have so many clients and friends who want healthier vacations and staycations. And what better place to have a healthy day than in NYC? 
Here is my ideal staycation day (ok really it’s my ideal Saturday too).

8am: Foodstalking emails, we are always watching you… and of course hanging with my pup+ ball of energy, Ziggy.
9am: Almond milk cappuccino from Bluestone Lane
930am: Morning SoulCycle with Mantas Zvinas

1130am: Late breakfast at Two Hands, Brassicas Bowl (charred broccolini, brussels sprouts, kale, soft boiled egg, avocado, pickled shallots and seeds) and maybe a bite of avocado toast (shared for the table… Australians do it right)

1pm: 30 mins at HigherDOSE or acupuncture with Chris Peacock

2pm: Midday Mosey on the High Line and brainstorming my new blog project, on living a Life Less Filtered, launching in Jan! 

3pm: Afternoon snack at the new west village Brodo – I love the Tom Yum or the Gilligan. Optional Foodtrainers official Nutcase filled with Organic Living Superfood pecans.

330pm: Walk around the corner into CAP beauty and try not to buy all the beautiful organic products (but maybe just a few… winter skin needs some new Jiva Apoha oils)

5pm: take a chill yoga class at Sky Ting’s beautiful new TriBeCa studio

8pm: Dinner at Loring Place: First a drink at the pretty bar: I love the peaks and valleys cocktail (their spin on a margarita), Lauren is a fan of The Stable (matcha and gin).

As for dinner, you really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, but some of my faves have been the broccoli, tuna tartare, roasted black bass (the herb vinaigrette is out of this world), ok and if you’re not gluten free you absolutely must try the Brussels Sprout Pizza.

10pm: Night cap and music at Rockwood Music Hall or the 55 bar.

OK that’s where you’ll find me if you need me! Probably instagramming it too, let’s be honest… 

So what did I miss, what are your favorite spots to staycation?

And, have a healthy and happy holiday.
