I arrived to NYC last night and have had a wonderful day in the big apple so far.

IMG_1285I finally got to go to the Butcher’s Daughter! A juice bar/ cafe that I have been wanting to go to for a while now…..mmm doesn’t the food look amazing?!

The Butcher’s Daughter is strictly vegetarian and non dairy.

Most of their items are vegan and gluten free!

Center of Quito ♡

I got to visit the center of Quito!

This is where the president of Ecuador lives ^^

IMG_0209

There is so much history located in one place.

We were able to visit two of many churches located in that area.

IMG_0207

My favorite was a church called Iglesia De La Compania which is a  church made out of gold. Unfortunately I was not allowed to take pictures of  it… but let me tell you! It was so breathtaking to see. I have visited many catholic churches in Europe but it was so interesting to see the characteristic of a South American church.

Amorino ♡

The cutest gelato shop opened on Newbury St. which is a street near where I live in Boston. I noticed that they served their gelato shaped like a rose… So  it obviously caught my attention!!

11216267_959869057402626_866514288_n

 As a last farewell hangout my roommates & I decided to go before we all left to go home for summer break. We all got the picollo cone, which is the gelato with the rose. Amorino sells are their cone gelatos in a rose shape. We got to choose up to three flavors.

mmmmm it was soo good and satisfying to eat such delicious gelato shaped like a rose! For some reason I felt it tasted even better when it was shaped like a rose haha

 They even sold macarons with gelato  which I didn’t get to try but I will definitely be going back in the fall to try it out.

Amorino states that they only use organic eggs, fresh milk,  and selected fruits with no artificial colors or flavors.

If you are in the Boston area or in New York, France, Italy you should definitely check Amorino out!! Here is their website for more information- http://www.amorino.com/en/

Let me know how you like it!

with so much love,

A group of friends and I made a reservation at Max Brenner last night to celebrate the end of the year. I have heard  many great things about Max Brenner so I was very excited to give it a try.

Sweet Green ♡

11173554_952606558128876_933877173_n

I am so lucky to have one of my favorite restaurants  near by me.  Sweet Green is a place that serves local and organic ingredients from local farmers.

11122497_952606554795543_1020542989_n

Look how cute this place is!!

11166061_952606691462196_1477525017_n

I ordered the Harvest Bowl which had organic wild rice + shredded kale, apples, sweet potatoes, toasted almonds, local goat cheese, roasted chicken, balsamic vinaigrette with some tasty natural  lemonade!

mmmmm right?!

They  have soups, grain bowls, and  salads!

11198477_952659918123540_509887390_n (1)

Look they even show you what and where some of the ingredients are from! (as you can see most are from local farms)

Something that I love about Sweet Green  is that they make certain meals  based  on the season we are in. Obviously because certain vegetables taste better when they are in season.

Here is a link to their menu- http://sweetgreen.com/menu/

11173447_952606638128868_871118539_n

if you’ve been to Sweet Green what is your favorite meal you get from there?! I’d love to know

Since finals is going on it is important to feed your body with healthy nutrients to help keep your body moving, sooo I definitely recommend going to this place especially during this time of the year!

ENJOYYYYY

with so much love,
