The Bronx has its very own salad. It’s called “The Bronx Salad”. This salad consists of a lot of yummy goods such as red peppers, red onions, black beans, corn, tomatoes, mangoes, cilantro, avocado, plantain chips with a delicious dressing made from scratch. Full of flavor and I must admit that this salad is very filling.

This salad has been around since 2016 and it has been a successful hit thus far. The institute for family health says that this salad “Made with simple, fresh ingredients, the dressing includes the famous Bronx Greenmarket Hot Sauce, created by acclaimed Chef King Phojanakong, using peppers grown at more than 40 Bronx greenmarket farms and community gardens.” This is great! I feel much better eating this salad, knowing that the ingredients are locally grown.

You can purchase this salad from the places below:

  1. Bronx Tavern 
  2. Da Boogiedown Caffe 
  3. Fine Fare Supermarket  (East 149th Street Location)
  4. Mottley Kitchen 
  5. NY Bagel Cafe & Deli (Bruckner Blvd Location) 
  6. Porto Salvo 
  7. XM Cafe at the Bronx Museum 

 

The Bronx Salad is absolutely delicious. You have to give it a try, I promise you wont regret it.

Happy Eating, 

Dey

On Saturday March 3rd 2018, The Bronx birthed its first networking space for Bronx Innovators. This event was created with the intention of bringing Bronx Bloggers in one space. This event turned out better than what I had originally expected. I had such a good time meeting a list of Bronx professionals that share the love for their home (The Boogie down Bronx.) As Blogger Tess had mentioned in her blog, the people of The Bronx are hungry and there is something percolating here in our borough.

This is a small taste of what The Bronx can do. This is what happens when you put a whole bunch of Bronx Innovators in one room. The energy was absolutely amazing. I started off with a small idea of inviting 30 Innovators for a forum and then it escalated to 250 Innovators in one room, real quick. To see everyone connecting and building together as brothers and sisters, was truly beautiful. We must fight for what we love, which is our home; The Bronx!! This is just the beginning, there is more! If you missed this one, no worries! My team and I are coming back stronger for the next one. Bronx Strong for lifeeeee.

🍃 All flowers require sunlight, water and nutrients from the soil in order to grow. HOWEVER, a flower will grow best depending on its environment. Got that? Now, humans require food, water, air and shelter in order to grow. However, humans will grow best depending on their environment.. Did you catch that? Just like a flower or a plant, we require certain elements in order to grow. The difference here; is that plants cant change their environment, but WE CAN! The bible says that, we reap what we sow. So unlike flowers, we have a choice. Are you in a environment that is helping you grow? or are you in a environment that is preventing you from growth? Is it helping you grow, socially, mentally or spiritually? We ought to be realistic with ourselves. Time waits for no man. 🍃


With lots of love,

Here’s why: ⠀

Summer 2017 has officially been one of the best summers that I have experienced thus far, within my twenty three years of living. You may be thinking why? Well, let me share with you that this summer, I committed my life to Jesus Christ. I️ realized that there was so much more to life and that it was impossible for me to live without God in my life. Ever since, god has been filling me up with power, love and a sound mind. However, I’d like to highlight that I️ did not grow up in a Christian household and no one really talked to me about god. I have always believed in god but .. I️ did not see this hunger for Christ coming my way at all! This was not my plan y’all but it’s the best unplanned plan I’ve ever had. In a nutshell; I traded my sorrow, I traded my pain and I laid it all down for the joy of the lord. And I️ am eternally grateful. I️ pray that he does the same for you. 🌸
