This Week in Wellness: 4-Course Vegan ends, Kardashians at Barry’s, and more
Welcome to our weekly roundup of wellness tidbits, healthy hints, and new places and products that caught our eye. Our Page Six!
The end of a vegan era. Matteo Silverman, chef and founder of one of Brooklyn’s favorite supper clubs, 4-Course Vegan, announced in an email to his followers this week that he’ll be discontinuing the popular dinners this January, after nine years. We suspect the end has something to do with Silverman’s expanding repertoire, like his gig as Cooler Cleanse’s Raw Cooler chef. Hopefully we’ll see more from him soon, because—seriously—we’ve never seen someone do so much with a collard green.
The Kardashians heart Barry’s. This week, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian joined the list of celebs that have stopped by New York’s still young Barry’s Bootcamp location to get their workout on. FitPerez spotted them emerging from the studio, with owner/fave instructor Joey Gonzalez graciously showing them out. No word on whether they were “keeping up” during class.
Chefs who smoke. According to Grubstreet, the Center for Disease Control released a study this week that concluded that food service is one of the most cigarette smoking-prone professions around. Hopefully the same chef who made you that amazing kale-and-quinoa salad is not following up his labor with a smoke break. Green juice breaks for all!
Pilates for Pink. To kick off the month of all things pink, Shape Magazine is hosting a Pilates fest in Union Square this Sunday. Your $25 donation to the Breast Cancer Research Fund gets you a 40-minute class, a goodie bag, and a Pilates mat. Not a bad price for a weekend workout and some charity muscle-flexing.
