What happens when you pair a health-conscious, vegan mother of two who has her own diet business with a husband and children who sometimes have other ideas? This blog is a chronicle of my journey to eat and live in a life-affirming way!

Highline and Homemade Ices on a Beautiful Summer Day!

This Saturday we took the children to Chelsea Market to have lunch and walk on the Highline, which is the artistically landscaped promenade on the West Side running from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking district to 34th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues.

For those who have not been to Chelsea Market, they have everything to eat! Since I eat a primarily raw, vegan diet while the rest of my family desires more mainstream, finding a compromise with restaurants can sometimes be tricky. Not so today! I had a green juice and a delicious, raw falafel salad from One Lucky Duck while the children had spinach quiche and a slice of pizza (not perfect but it was a real Italian thin-sliced one and not the junky kind!) and a lemonade from One Lucky Duck.

After lunch the children both had real shaved-ices from People's Pops! We all then took a leisurely stroll down the Highline. What a perfect day with the family.
