Daily Mom Essentials & Survival Guide

At over 9 months postpartum, I can finally say I’m settling into the groove of being a mom and getting a routine down.

New York City has some of the best food and cutest restaurants. When I was last there in February, one of my main goals was to eat my weight in pastries and I’m preeetty sure I succeeded. I was also traveling with my vegan friend though, so to be mindful of her alternative eating, I searched for some fun plant-based restaurants we could try, and I’m happy to say that two of the BEST meals from the trip were vegan and/or clean!
