Skinny and the City

nightview

A few months ago, I stopped by Tanya Zuckerbrot’s (MS, RD) office in midtown to pick up some PB2. I read Tanya’s book The F-Factor Diet (F stands for fiber!) back in 2007, but I just recently discovered her email newsletter and website: Skinny and the City. I signed up to receive the daily email packed full of useful information for a busy, 20-something like myself. In addition to the daily email, the Skinny and the City website features archived diet & nutrition tips, restaurant reviews, healthy recipes, and fashion & beauty articles. It’s a great resource for eating healthy, looking pretty, and feeling your best. Check it out!

From the July 4, 2009 Skinny and the City Newsletter and Website:

For all of you who love going back for seconds or thirds of dessert, check out this recipe: delicious grown-up popsicles! Make them for your weekend picnic!

More of a sweet ‘n salty snacker? Before you hit up those yogurt covered raisins again (hint: they’re not so healthy!), try these chocolate covered figs (hint: they are so healthy!). Enter our contest to win a box. Then take them to the movies or the beach…

…and stow them with your seaside beauty essentials — we don’t go sunning or swimming without them — for a perfect summer’s day.

Something else we don’t leave home without, no matter the season? Our morning cup of coffee! Check out the new research that will have you reaching for a refill. Then check out all of our readers’ picks for their favorites brews.

And finally, when you pull up a stool for happy hour with your peeps, don’t forget to order some food. That’s right: It’s ok to eat bar food. We tell you how — and more importantly, tell you the calorie shockers to avoid!

  • Thanks so much for the recommendation! I’m definitely going to check out her site. I’d seen her book in Barnes and Noble, but haven’t read it yet. What did you think of it?

  • Nice find, thanks for sharing.

  • Thank you for writing about us and helping to spread the word, Megan! We love your blog and want to send you a care package. E-mail me the best address to send to!

  • Sounds great! I’m gonna be checking the site out for sure 🙂
