The Fresh Diet

I decided to take advantage of a Gilt City coupon and try out one of the diet delivery food services, Fresh Diet. I loved it so much I extended my plan for another month!

I was able to avoid foods I don't like and pick out each meal (3 a day, plus a snack and a dessert). All of the food was extremely fresh, and honestly delicious.

Eating smaller portions has been a challenge, but having each meal mapped out makes my day so much easier.

I'm so happy with Fresh Diet, it's almost like having a private chef!

Bar Marmont's Hollywood Cake

This Hollywood Cake from Bar Marmont, named for the obvious decorative reference, is definitely one of my favorite chocolate cakes. It is thick as fudge and insanely rich. It's the kind of cake that sticks to the top of your mouth and requires milk. I love it so much.

Scarpetta's Vanilla Caramel Budino

This Vanilla Caramel Budino is Scarpetta's signature dessert, and also one of the best things I've ever tasted. The base was a thick vanilla pudding, topped with chocolate crunchies, salted caramel, and whipped cream. I may have to go back to Scarpetta just for this.

Little Dom's Ice Cream Sundae

Little Dom's has again proven itself to be superior to Dominick's. This gelato sundae was TO DIE FOR. The vanilla ice cream and whipped cream were both best of quality, but the hazelnut chocolate sauce is what made this so incredible. It was like a dark, hot Nutella. We licked that dish clean.
