I have been eating out a lot these past few weeks. A lot.
I’ve been trying to eat meals that land in the $5- range.
Hale & Hearty medium-sized yellow & split pea soup
Maoz Vegetarian-Falafel sandwich
Shake Shack-Shack Burger
Sigmunds-Cheddar Jalapeno Pretzel
Ray’s Pizza-Caprese Pizza Slice
To all of these I could add stuff on….fries and a shake at the shack, sweet potato fries at maoz, a full pretzel sandwich, more pizza….but then the meal would no longer by $5!
But! Then I decided to try to lose a few pounds for an upcoming audition, and none of these choices are going to aid me in the rapid weight-loss situation. Day one of the diet, I skipped the bread that came with the soup at H & H. After polling my peops, they agree: cut the carbs. I do eat a lot of carbs.
I do still think that these $5- options are excellent and if you are ever NYC, please check ‘em out!
