August 15, 2009

What a fun morning!! I *think* it’s going really well!!

Hope you guys have had a chance to check in and watch the LiveSteam!!! It’s so cool to see ourselves on camera just seconds after speaking :) You can also follow the Twitter Feed by searching for #HLS on Twitter.

The morning started with Janel Ovrut, MS RD LDN’s talk on healthy eating. She was awesome!!!!! So down to earth, and shares many of the same tips we all believe in. Great questions too!

We played a few mixer games with fun prizes

Next up came ZestyCook, sponsor and speaker! He talked about Blogging 101, which was a big hit with lots of questions. It’s been fun to get to know Zesty in person!

Then it was lunchtime!!!!

We had sandwiches with turkey and assorted cheeses, tons of veggies, grilled veggies, pesto, salad, dijon potato salad, caprese salad, and lots of fruit.

I made an awesome sandwich on a roll with turkey, havarti dill cheese, tomato, mustard, and pesto

Tried the potato salad – which was awesome (and I’m picky about potato salad!) and a pickle

And filled up the rest of my plate with veggies/salad

Sweet watermelon was the perfect dessert (although we all sort of wished we’d gone with the chocolate brownies 😉 )

I’m so excited for the afternoon – Regina Beidler, organic dairy farmer from Organic Valley, who supplies milk to Stonyfield, and a Body + Soul magazine panel talking about green beauty!

Better pay attention!

I’m so happy the Summit is going so well for you ladies. You should be so proud of all your hard work! I’m just wondering, will the video be available for those of us that could not catch certain parts live? I missed the Blogger Q&A :(


5 Elizabeth (The Dallas Celiac) August 15, 2009 at 12:48 pm

I always want to end my meal with a brownie, but fruit is a better choice. :)

Have fun!


6 Leianna August 15, 2009 at 12:55 pm

What a yummy spread of lunch choices, the fruit would be my choice of a plate mountain!


7 Lizzy August 15, 2009 at 12:57 pm

Love watching live stream! ZestyCook had some really great info! Thanks for letting us watch


8 Marie August 15, 2009 at 1:28 pm

I’ve enjoyed the Summit so far. Thanks for the opportunity to view it online! I hope it will be available later because I can’t sit and watch the whole thing today.


9 Hallie (Healthy Twists) August 15, 2009 at 1:36 pm

I think this’ll be the first conference that didn’t have giant cookies or cheesecake for lunch dessert 😉 I’m really impressed that you ladies pulled this all off…and I’m sure it’s really going to help your careers and establish your brand further (I’m in PR so stuff like that is cool to me!)


10 MarathonVal August 15, 2009 at 1:56 pm

I’m having so much fun watching the livestream – esp the OB segment right now! Have fun!


11 Shannon, The Healthy Beach Bum August 15, 2009 at 2:19 pm

21 Emily, homecookedem August 15, 2009 at 4:58 pm

Even though I couldn’t be there, it was nice to watch the live streaming coverage of HLS! Especially since I’m not feeling well today and on the couch…

Keep having a great time! I know you must be proud of all of your hard work!! :)


22 kay (eating machine) August 15, 2009 at 5:43 pm

So great that the day’s going well! And a yummy lunch too!


23 Kevin August 15, 2009 at 5:44 pm

Congrats, the Summit looks amazing…I hope you are having a blast!

Similar to those above, I’d love to know if the streaming will be available later as well. I tried watching Cory but I’m on an old computer and kept having connection errors.


24 KatieMoo August 15, 2009 at 7:26 pm

Congrats! I watched most of the summit and it was amazing! You girls rock. And it’s 7:26! 26!

The lunch looks so good! Got to watch some of the live stream last night. Thanks it was a great idea to do that for those of us on the other side of the world!


26 Jessica August 15, 2009 at 10:27 pm

The lunch spread looks great. It’s so nice that you guys have plenty of options for vegetarians and non-vegetarians
