Happy Saturday! Hope your weekend is off to a good start. Here in NYC, we’ve been enjoying some beautiful weather. About damn time. I celebrated the beginning of a few days off with my sister at Cafe Jolie in Hells Kitchen with my sister. One of these days, I’ll have to try the crepes, but on a sunny spring day, nothing hits the spot like frozen yogurt with rainbow sprinkles—totally unnecessary and not even remotely nutritious, but totally delicious.

One day, I’d love to have a big kitchen with an island in the middle where I can relax and talk with people while cooking together—that’s always been one of my favorite things to do. img 1396 - Saturday Prepimg 1639 - Saturday PrepI think it’s going to be good.When Chris got home from an event last night, he said I had an “aura of fogginess” (he’s been hanging out with me too long!) and gave me a melatonin to help me sleep off the cold and/or allergies that were trying to close in on me. This time of year I usually take Zyrtec too, and I’m planning to get a Neti Pot.

I felt quite a bit better when I woke up, if a little stuffy, but a hot yoga class seems to have helped me sweat out a lot of whatever’s gnawing at my metaphorical ankle. Hopefully this feeling better trend will continue. Time for a few errands and more prep.

Enjoy your weekend!

PS—I know it’s been a while since I talked about the proposed ban on food stamp purchases of soda, and this morning I finally read a few follow-ups. Click here to see more about just how unhappy Big Soda is about Bloomberg’s Food Stamp Soda ban. Not surprising. I still support it. Soda is not food, and I really don’t buy the argument of not wanting to stigmatize the poor. Personally, I believe the benefits of allotting food stamp dollars for nutritious, real food that actually nourishes the body outweighs that particular negative.
