Brunch at Sacred Chow (Again)

This morning I met up with 2 of my fellow New York bloggers – Marina and Missy. We get together for brunch every once in a while and we like to go to yummy vegetarian/vegan places. Today we headed down to Sacred Chow (I’ve been there with Bobby and my brother – sacred chow salad number 1, sacred chow salad number 2!).

Instead of salad I opted for a brunch special – I got the tofu scramble with fruit (instead of home fries) and salad with lemon-miso dressing (I think) ($13.75). Poor Marina ordered a glass of orange juice that came out to be $8 – ridiculous! The scramble was delicious though. I almost finished it (and of course finished the fruit and salad) and brought a few bites home for Bobby (he just ate it with toast). We actually all got the scramble. Last time we got together we all ordered the same thing too.

On my way home from brunch I picked up a decaf coffee at Whole Foods – no matter how much coffee I try, Whole Foods’ coffee is always my favorite. I like it with soy milk (just a splash) and Z-Sweet (a natural zero-calorie sweetener).


The coffee was hot, and it is *hot* again today (90s), so I poured it over ice when I got home and enjoyed a cooling fresh iced coffee.

Exercise of the day: the first part of Crunch: Burn & Firm Pilates (the cardio segment; ~35 minutes). The instructor is Ellen Barrett (again! yes she is my favorite!). This workout is a short warmup (<5 minutes), cardio (~30 minutes), and mat work (~10 minutes; I didn’t do this part). The cardio is with weights but I didn’t use weights (I don’t have them) and it was still a sweaty workout. This is yet another free Netflix exercise video. I also walked about 20 blocks or so (1 mile) to get to brunch from Union Square. Yesterday’s EotD was Ellen Barrett’s Self: Slim & Sleek, Fast! (again).

What do you do for exercise on the weekends? Do you stick to the same things you do during the week or do you play it by ear? I tend to do more walking on the weekends so I don’t always do a video/podcast.

    $8 for orange juice is insane! I hope it was good! That yoga class deal is awesome–wish I lived in the area!

    I’m curious about the tofu scramble you had… I like it when I make it, but I’ve never had it done well at a restaurant.

    Hope you had a great weekend! 🙂

    You got the better deal with your delicious tofu scramble. You could buy a gallon and a pint of OJ for $8. I love Whole Foods coffee, too. It warms the soul like other coffees don’t…
