It's so cute to read about the New Yorkers making their first tentative forays to Trader Joe's. Today New York Times shopping reporter (now there's a job) Alexandra Kuczynski, takes her turn. Among the things we learn: she gives her dog vitamins and she drinks Jana skinny water, which Hungry Girl totally slammed today for "tasting like a wet nap."
But more importantly, the Manhattan Trader Joe's DELIVERS. Jeez, just when I was feeling superior for having shopped at Trader Joe's for 20 years. Also, do our Trader's have the Hawaiian black sea salt? Sounds interesting.
Speaking of Hungry Girl, check out her site if you're a girl or a guy who is trying to watch your calorie intake. Although she does tend to focus on processed snack products, it's still fun to subscribe to the free email newsletter full of handy tricks like how to make fettucini out of no-cal shirataki noodles or how to make the green tea frappucino at Starbuck's slightly more healthy (tell them to hold the melon syrup).
