Deli Digs #2: Lean Green Machine
As a trainer in NYC constantly on the go, I'm often in need of quick and healthy snacks that I can grab from basically any NYC deli on the fly. As much as I'd love to lug a cooler around the city full of homemade foods, it's just not practical every day. When I need something to keep me going strong during long hours on the floor while training, my go-to is this green smoothie. The deli around the corner from my gym actually knows my order by heart now, and my clients have started to ask for it, too. I told them today they should dub this "The Elizabeth". LOL. Forever famous at a hole-in-the-wall deli in Hell's Kitchen NYC. #finallymadethebigtime
