Sadly, it’s impossible to experience everything New York City has to offer during one short trip. But maybe that’s not so sad after all, as it leaves something for the next trip. One place I always make sure to visit on every NYC trip is Greenwich Village. I feel at home among the artsy NYU students, the happy-go-lucky dogs (I love that dog park!), and all the vegetarian-friendly establishments…
Such as the Lifethyme Natural Market. An establishment can’t get much more vegetarian-friendly than this market. With well-stocked shelves of organic fruits, veggies, vitamins, and packaged items up front, and an enticing array of hot foods, raw foods, smoothies, and desserts in the back, Lifethyme Natural Market is a Vegan Paradise. It even boasts an upstairs room filled with natural beauty products, personal-care items, and books.
One could spend all day in the Lifethyme Market. That is, if the most thrilling city in the world weren’t waiting right outside! Even though we were only in the city for two day trips, I was lucky enough to make two stops at Lifethyme. The first stop was to pick up a lunch from the salad/hot bar.
I packed up my lunch, then oh-so-graciously suggested to Handsome Dinner Lunch Date that we mosey on down to a British pub, where he bought his lunch and we took in a soccer match. Although my salad creation hit the spot, the real star of the lunch was Navy Bean Soup. (I added extra veggies from the hot bar.) Even the muggy summer weather couldn’t detract from this bowl’s deliciousness.
The next day, we made another quick stop at Lifethyme New York City Market, before heading off to La Guardia Airport (location of Seitan Wars 2009).
Feeling adventurous, I bought a slice of raw spinach-quinoa quiche, which I ate as a pre-flight dinner.
