Cravings Crawl: Rachel Drori

The founder of Daily Harvest shows us some tops spots to satisfy your pregnancy taste buds in NYC.

Cravings Crawl: Rachel Drori

Pregnancy can do a funny thing to a woman. We’ve seen veggie obsessives become omnivores, sugar addicts turn savory and meat lovers go cold turkey. All because of the tiny little human inside.

Recently we had the pleasure of accompanying Rachel Drori, the founder of the brand new organic ready-to-blend smoothie delivery service Daily Harvest (our new obsession), to indulge her personal cravings near her Manhattan home. As a seasoned New Yorker with some serious knowledge about health and food, we wanted to find out what she’s been eating during her first pregnancy. And let us tell you, as seasoned New Yorkers who just so happened to be food lovers ourselves, we were so very happy we followed her along on this this cravings crawl with our friends at Old Navy.

Check out her picks.

HU KITCHEN

Greenwich Village

“When I want something nourishing and don't have time to think about what's in my food, I head to Hu Kitchen. I know whatever I choose will be unprocessed and free of pesticides and hormones. Their Mash Bar is perfect for a sweet craving while their prepared foods are perfect for a hearty and savory fix.”

BREADS BAKERY

Union Square

“Bread's Bakery is a true guilty pleasure. Their rugula satisfies my chocolate addiction by being indulgent and rich as well as practically bite-sized, so just one does the trick. I also love their quinoa salad!”

OOTOYA

Flatiron

“My first trimester was the era of chicken wings. They were all I wanted! Ootoya does them up perfectly as yakitori with a fresh grilled taste to satisfy the little carnivore growing inside. Plus, all their meat is free range which is a huge plus.”

This 'mama' necklace is a bestseller for a powerful reason

There's a lot going on in the world right now, but one thing that's certain? You're still mama.

There's a lot going on in the world right now, but one thing that's certain? You're still mama. No matter what is going on at work, what decision you make about heading back to school, or how you're caring for your family right now, we know you're the best mama for your family.

So in case you need a little reminder of just how incredible you are, we love this sweet necklace from Tiny Tags. And other mamas do, too, because it's been one of our top sellers for weeks.

Whether you're coveting it for yourself or want to gift it to your favorite mama, it's one of those gifts that'll keep on giving years later. It's dainty enough to easily layer with just about anything you have in your jewelry collection, but is just as beautiful as a standalone piece to wear daily. And in these tough seasons, it's honestly a gentle, much-needed reminder that you were made for this. You can do hard things. You are doing the best you can even when it feels like you can't make one more decision.

Sorry, you can’t meet our baby yet

Thank you for understanding. ❤️

In just over three weeks, we will become parents. From then on, our hearts will live outside of our bodies. We will finally understand what everyone tells you about bringing a child into the world.

Lately, the range of emotions and hormones has left me feeling nothing short of my new favorite mom word, "hormotional." I'm sure that's normal though, and something most people start to feel as everything suddenly becomes real.

Our bags are mostly packed, diaper bag ready, and birth plan in place. Now it's essentially a waiting game. We're finishing up our online childbirth classes which I must say are quite informational and sometimes entertaining. But in between the waiting and the classes, we've had to think about how we're going to handle life after baby's birth.

I don't mean thinking and planning about the lack of sleep, feeding schedule, or just the overall changes a new baby is going to bring. I'm talking about how we're going to handle excited family members and friends who've waited just as long as we have to meet our child. That sentence sounds so bizarre, right? How we're going to handle family and friends? That sentence shouldn't even have to exist.

Two weeks. I cannot believe that it has been two weeks since my second son was brought into this world. Two weeks since my husband and I welcomed baby Simon, the final piece of our little family.

But, here is the whopper: It has been two weeks since I have been the mom of a toddler and a newborn. I am now responsible for taking care of two tiny humans.

It absolutely blows my mind how much my life has changed in the last two weeks. It's definitely not all rainbows and unicorns around here, but things are going pretty well. This is me being cautiously optimistic.

What I have done is learned a lot about myself, my kids and my new life in the last two weeks.
