This particular location (one of four!) is conveniently located above Whole Foods in Gowanus. I was definitely in plant lady heaven, and couldn’t stop smiling even if I tried. If you don’t already know, Gotham Greens is the urban farming pioneer growing and harvesting hyper-local, pesticide-free greens on rooftops. Every vegetable and herb is sustainably grown using 100% clean and renewable energy.

Last Friday I attended the highly-anticipated FounderMade Wellness Summit hosted at Spring Studios in NYC. I was personally very excited to be invited, because so many of the speakers and attendees were people I’ve long admired. From the Founders & CEOs of companies like MindBodyGreen, Wanderlust, and Greatist to the Editor-in-Chief of Women’s Health Magazine, it was quite an explosion of empowering leaders to say the least.
Hello hello! I made SUCH a delicious smoothie the other day, and I just had to share it with you guys! I think it’s the perfect winter-themed drink to get you into the holiday spirit, yet it’s still refreshing as a post-workout pick-me-up or as a breakfast treat. Peep the recipe below:
So, let me tell you all about my friend Falcon. For starters, she is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. We met at a work event and quickly discovered we had more than a million things in common, so birds of a feather! She’s a plant-based yogi + photographer based in NYC who loves to travel and help inspire people to live a holistic lifestyle. If you head to her Instagram @_falconcara_ you’ll notice 1. it’s visually STUNNING and 2. she makes gorgeous smoothie bowls that will have you drooling… I mean, look:
Happy Monday, lovelies! Let me begin by saying, I didn’t start Om & the City to write trendy, generic blog posts that are ‘click-worthy’. I started it to share my own perspective, personal growth and experiences in the wellness industry, with hopes that I find a community that connects to it. If I ever serve you anything less, please call me out. I share topics I believe in, but I think it’s equally important to share what I don’t believe in – and for one, that’s juice cleanses.
