Fashion month can be a stressful time, with tight and often conflicting schedules that don't always include sufficient windows of time for proper meals. During the season, many rely on basic catering and often sugary snacks to keep going. At a time of high stress and high-energy expenditure, our bodies and minds crave proper food and powerful ingredients that offer natural benefits. For the sake of ease and optimal health, we've listed our favourite and most accessible healthy eateries and one-stops in each city, starting with New York. These are places you can pop into for a nourishing take-away or to enjoy a replenishing meal at the end of a long day.
For fresh pressed juices, killer coffees, serious smoothies, take away sweet treats and a selection of ready-to-eat, mix & match cooked food options (available to take away or eat in). We recommend the Breakfast Bar, Almond Butter & Quinoa Raw Chocolate Bar, Almond Breaded Chicken, Sauteed Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potato Wedges.
For high quality high taste and high vibe juices, smoothies, shots, acai bowls, oatmeal, soups, salads and sweet and savoury snacks. We recommend the Clean Green Protein Smoothie, E3 Live shot, Vanilla Delight Almond Milk and MOTHER F*#%IN’ Fireball Juice Shot (if you're feeling particularly tired and rundown).
For the juciest juices, shots and infused waters. We recommend the Seasonal Watermelon, Jicama and Tart Cherry juice, Activated Charcoal Lemonade, the Coconut Cinnamon blend, Chlorophyll H2O and Vanilla Coffee.
For takeaway bone broth and liquid nourishment on-the-go. We recommend the Heart with added fermented beet juice, Grated Turmeric, Local Squash and Shitake Tea.
For the ultimate brunch break. We recommend the Golden State Wellness Latte, Stalks & Leaves Juice, Raw Smoothies, Gluten Free Brioche French Toast, Buckwheat Pancakes or the Breakfast Burrito.
For everything eggy. We recommend the Fish Out of Water, the Avo & Egg or the Spandex with a side of baby kale salad.
DIMES + DIME DELI
For local, seasonal and bloody fun food bowls, most of which is also available in take away form from their new Deli across the road. We recommend the Orange + Date Muesli Bowl, Berry Acai Bowls, Love Toast or the Quinoa Bowl.
For basically anything you can dream of. We recommend The Lobster Place for fresh sushi or fresh lobster, the grocery stores for unpackaged nuts and wholefoods snacks, and The Green Table for an evening meal made from local, seasonal fare.
BLACK SEED BAGELS
For anyone not concerned about gluten. We recommend the #2 (Beet, Lox, Radish & Herb) and #10 (Smoked Trout, Hard Boiled Egg, Arugula, & Dijon Mustard)
For anything you want in salad form. We recommend the Guacamole Greens, Earth Bowl, Harvest Bowl, Shroomami or the Make Your Own Option.
For the best take-away, fast food vegan. We recommend the Kale Caesar Salad, Southwestern Quinoa, Quinoa Taco, The Guac Burger, Quinoa Hash Browns, AB&B Toast and their vegan ice creams.
For quick, create-your-own, indian-inspired goodness bowls. We recommend mixing and matching with the Not Rice Cauliflower Rice, Slaw, Fermented Quinoa, Marinated Chicken and Seared Salmon, or from their own menu, the Meditation Salad, Life Aquatic, Namastay Healthy or their fully loaded Dosa Waffles.
