My day in NYC ♡

IMG_1256

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!

I love you I love you I love you New York.

I ordered the Super Green salad.  I loved that they added fresh feta cheese and avocado but my favorite part of the salad was the dressing which was a “chia-lime vinaigrette”  omg it was delicioussss

I also tried a few of their beverages , I fell in LOVE with the mint julep so I would definitely recommend that which contained lavender, jasmine, rose, and peppermint.
