Oxygen is currently rebranding its network and adding seven new series. The new slate includes a reality show calledSisterhood of Hip Hop, which Grammy award-winning rapper T.I. is producing. The series follows upcoming rappers Siya, Brianna Perry, Diamond, Bia and Nyemiah Supreme as they live, love and attempt to make it big in the music industry. Siya posted a video on Instagram shouting out T.I. for the opportunity and for being a part of helping her break barriers in the LGBT community.
How would your life be different if…You stopped making negative judgmental assumptions about people you encounter? Let today be the day…You look for the good in everyone you meet and respect their journey.
Posting food pics came to a halt for me last fall. The greatness that I ingested today requires me to temporarily break that personal rule though.
I’d like to take a moment to give major props to Chobani for their cafe concept in SoHo. I’ve walked by this spot a million times but never entered, having passed it off as them just selling the prepackaged varieties seen in our local grocery and convenience stores. Talk about loafing, only to realize how much I loafed during my first visit this afternoon. Upon your first visit, you’re going to stare at the menu for a few minutes in both amazement and indecisiveness - you’ll want to try a little of everything because it all looks so appetizing. My intention was to fall back on my normal breakfast yogurt option of berries and granola, however I chose one of the savory options. Some background on my food experience - I’ve eaten savory meals that included yogurt but it was more of a topping than a main ingredient. So what did I end up selecting? The zucchini pesto + tomato, which also comes with pine nuts, balsamic reduction, parmesan crumbles, EVOO, salt & pepper and a side of pita chips. This hands down was the most satisfying yogurt preparation I’ve ever eaten. You’ll also find many other rather appealing options like pistachio + chocolate and toasted coconut + pineapple on the sweet menu, red pepper harissa + feta and pomegranate + caramelized onions on the savory menu, along with a number of sandwiches and soups. The bottles of EVOO and clover honey pictured are also available for sale.
Adding to this random, yet dope experience are a very knowledgeable and friendly staff, coffee (as in espresso), a complimentary souvenir yogurt bowl when you eat in the cafe, and that this NYC location is the only one in the world. I don’t know how many people were as impressed by this spot as I was but this had to be the best dining experience I’ve had in a minute. This place can definitely become a habit. See about ‘em next time you’re in the city.
