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.”

Raising a mentally strong kid doesn't mean he won't cry when he's sad or that he won't fail sometimes. Mental strength won't make your child immune to hardship—but it also won't cause him to suppress his emotions.

In fact, it's quite the opposite. Mental strength is what helps kids bounce back from setbacks. It gives them the strength to keep going, even when they're plagued with self-doubt. A strong mental muscle is the key to helping kids reach their greatest potential in life.

But raising a mentally strong kid requires parents to avoid the common yet unhealthy parenting practices that rob kids of mental strength. In my book, 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don't Do, I identify 13 things to avoid if you want to raise a mentally strong kid equipped to tackle life's toughest challenges:
