Are you feelin’ so fresh and so clean, clean!?
I wish I were home and outside instead of in this dark, freezing cold hotel. But it is what it is!
My morning started with some of Jessie’s Amish Friendship bread!
It was like Irish soda bread and coffee cake rolled into one – amazing!
Luckily I brought a knife from home (in case of food emergency!) so I had the means to cut into the loaf in my hotel room
I took the slice down to the conference breakfast. I guessed they would just have pastries, muffins and white bagels and if I’m going to eat those kinds of carbs I’d rather them be made with real food. The Amish Friendship was deeeelicious!
We did have a beautiful selection of fruit, and I tried a SILK Very Vanilla for some protein and fat. Also, I passed on the Sbux coffee and had two mugs of Tazo tea instead. Normally this would give me a shoulderache – so we’ll see!
This morning was all politics. Not my favorite subject. We heard more on the importance of licensure in Virginia for RDs and from the First Lady of VA. I’m more into the FOOD side of nutrition!
Hoping this afternoon is more fun. It starts with a session on “Eating Clean” that I’m excited to hear.
We broke for lunch at 12:15 and had prepared boxes waiting
I was happy to get a veggie wrap that was actually quite good. Filled with hummus and olives and veggies. I ate most of him – and left the butt of tortilla
Also a very tasty pasta salad (I was THRILLED that there were no red onions in this lunchbox!!)
I passed on the potato chips, and saved my banana for later.
I finished lunch with an APPLE and a bite of each of the cookies which I deemed not worthy of my chew.
I dined next to the lovely Carmel of Norfolk State University. When I told her I was a blogger she got excited and wanted to take a photo together on her iPhone. She said “You’re famous. Can I get my picture with you” even before checking out KERF!! I was very flattered : ) So I took a photo of her for the blog. Now she’s famous!
I was hoping to get in a 15 minute walk to get some sunshine, but I’m outta time! I got one in on the morning break and it was so very energizing after sitting for so long.
See you tonight!!
