One of the challenges I get from my friends who acknowledge me as a foodie, is that I am a snob who can afford to eat well. First off, I take offense to being called a snob . . . well, not really. I mean, hey, if you like to eat crappy tasting food, that’s on you. I like to eat good – whether I have money or I don’t have money.
I’m a freelance writer, which means there are months where the eating is good. It also means there are whole seasons where I’m barely able to scratch a living out. I’m not complaining, that’s the life I chose. But when things are going well, you cannot fault me for living high off the hog.
I like to eat, and because I like to eat I also put in a massive amount of time at the gym, and on the streets of Brooklyn where I live. I run – a lot! The way I eat, I guess I have to; but here in Brooklyn they have a few pizzerias that are out of this world. I have been known to run for two hours, and walk into one of these eateries, sweat dripping down my face, smelling like a baby bear, and asking the owner for three slices of his best stuff.
I’ve done this on several occasions, and I get a few weird looks, but it’s my life. Well, for splurging like that I can easily spend $20. Twenty bucks on an afternoon snack – what the heck? Here’s the thing; when I’m in my broke phase, which happens less now, but still manages to find it’s way into my life at least once a year, I will not frequent these quaint eateries.
Instead I make food at my home, that tastes pretty close to the real thing. One of my favorite dishes I put together, I just so happened to find at one of my favorite blogs as well – the brokeassgourmet.com. For half the price I can eat even more slices of my favorite pizza, and feel even less guilty about it – because I got to save some money! Whoo hoo!
So, if you’re in a tight spot, and money isn’t flowing into your coffers, then you need to become resourceful, instead of focusing on your lack of resources. Head over to one of the many blogs, like the brokeassgourmet.com, and find a way to eat well, without having to pay a king’s ransom for it.
Before I wrap up this post, let me talk to you a little about my friends over at Tooth Implant Pros. I know this may seem like it’s from left field, and it is, but when these guys are helping to pay to keep the lights on, the least you can do is shout them out every now and again, right?
The Tooth Implant Pros started out as an agreement between an online marketing team and an implant dentist back in 2013. Since then, they have grown into a network of implant specialists looking for more implant patients. The Pros are the dentist themselves; trained specialists, usually Prosthodontists, who are looking to take on more new cases.
The guys behind the Tooth Implant Pros are online geeks, who use wacky online, Matrix-coding stuff to rank their websites on page one of search for the terms that generate patients looking specifically for dental implants. Together they service the city the dentist works out of, and everyone wins.
What started out in Queens NY, has now spread to Brooklyn; with a new location opening up in Manhattan very soon I hear. They have also opened up locations in Pittsburgh and Colorado Springs. They have now opened up a location in Washington DC as well. So if you are looking for affordable dental implants in Washington DC, then call 202-759-8572.
Believe me, these guys will take care of you. And whomever they decide to partner up with, believe me, they have been vetted and are the real deal. Give them a call and set up your appointment today.
