3 Easy, Awesome, and Lazy Ways to Stay Warm this Winter

By Debra Liu

It’s December, which means a few things are inevitable: snow (maybe even a blizzard), the holidays (yes, gifts!), New Year’s (oh the resolutions) and freezing our butts off (not so fun). Unfortunately, the first three things are completely out of our control, but thankfully, we CAN help you prevent frostbite. Here are some of FoodtoEat’s tricks for staying warm and cozy this winter:

(1) Order in food from your favorite restaurants

The great thing about ordering food delivered to your door is that you don’t have to go outside. The less time you spend outside, the warmer you’ll be. We’re GENIUSES. Also, it’s COLD outside and it might be snowing, which makes it dangerous to travel. When you order your food, you’ll stay warm, save travel time and save money (no 20% tip)!

(2) Eat hot foods and drink hot beverages.

Seriously, any food that has been heated…like noodle soup. Yogurt doesn’t count. Neither does cold pizza. Now, if you ordered a piping hot pizza with ooey gooey melted cheese, that would do the trick! Trust me, noodle soup like pho usually hits the spot. Hot foods will warm you right up and also, make your stomach super happy.

(3) Skip food truck lines by pre-ordering online first with FoodtoEat

The saddest, more depressing thing about winter is having to wait in line for food at your favorite food truck, all the while, feeling your limbs go numb from the cold. Well, lucky you, if you order online first through FoodtoEat, you can skip the line and pick up your food when you want it. No hassle, no waiting, and most importantly, no freezing. #SkipTheLine

If you stick to these three super easy ways to stay warm, you’ll definitely avoid the ice, ice, baby.

“It’s Worth the Wait”

A story about our food truck of the week: Uncle Gussy’s

When Nick from Uncle Gussy’s food truck warned me about the crazy line during lunch, I thought I knew what I was in for. I was in shock when I arrived around 11:45, to see a line of about 20 people already. Despite the hot day and everyone in suits, you could see the the customers day dreaming about their souvlaki, delicious pita bread, and seasoned fries while waiting in line.Image

As I was observing the crazy line at Uncle Gussy’s, I overheard a man saying to his friend that the line was pretty decent given other times he’s waited.

Just as this was said, it was as if the line magically got longer. And it just kept getting longer and longer! I found myself taking more and more pictures just to capture how long it actually grew (Please note that I stopped taking pictures at one point because my camera could not fit everything).Image

I went up and talked to some of the people towards the back of the line and asked them what prompted them to be there. They all said the same thing: the delicious food. I guess the one way to really know is to try it for yourself. Remember, 51st and Park! And the best part is… you can skip the line by ordering pick-up from foodtoeat.com!
