Your Weekend Cheat Day

What’s a cheat day really? It’s something absolutely necessary at a time like this, when – though we attempt to practice balance – our minds are in serious “cleanse mode” (even if our actions don’t follow). This week we’re giving you the third story of a new series where we pick our favorite Ideal Food Day and choose it as your next cheat day. Either you can cook your way through with recipes we give you, or we’ll suggest where to get each dish…this week you’ll be doing both!

We threw back to our interview with model and avid foodie – Chrissy Teigen – to find out what she’s eating on her Ideal Food Day. Who doesn’t want to eat what she’s eating?

For breakfast, John’s homemade cheesy sausage breakfast sandwich, then lunch at Blue Ribbon Sushi on Sullivan. I get the same things every time: Kanpachi Usuzukuri with extra yuzu pepper, the toro tataki, and the maguro salad. If it’s Thursday, dinner at Frank for their fabulous Lasagna Verdi. Order it well done and the edges are perfectly crispy and the middle is bubbling.
