Three Thirds Make A Whole

August 20, 2011

Sessions [supportive!]

Snacks [scrumptious!]

IMG_5991 (600x400)

Sandwiches [splendid!!!!]

IMG_5996 (400x600)

I went to a session on budgeting by Lauren (which of course I enjoyed!) and a session on rising above negativity by Brittany, Heather, Julie, and Courtney

IMG_5989 (600x400)

I also won the icebreaker bingo – $75 to Lululemon!! I set out to win big and then realized maybe as a founder I probably shouldn’t have won, but I didn’t plan a lick this year (all the credit goes to MEGHANN, who did a fabulous job) so I suppose it’s fair game. Plus, I have always wanted some Lulu gear!

Lunch came next, and I could barely contain myself because GREAT HARVEST WAYNE provided the bread!!!

I found a little nook of light to use for a sandwich photoshoot

IMG_6000 (600x400)

The sandwiches were all vegetarian – Smoked Tofu, Caprese, Roasted Vegetable – and were all totally delicious!!! Great Harvest Wayne gets a 10 for quality control from me : )

Salad on the side!

3 thirds make a whole, right!?

IMG_6006 (600x400)

Back inside, we had ballz for dessert. Sunflower + sun seed balls made by Shana

And almond flour Dough Balls by Katie!

We have a Dogfish beer chilling in our water pitcher. I kid you not!

Time to listen to Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD, CSSD, LDN (Quaker’s Keynote Speaker) about Realistic & Achievable Wellness.

I would have loved to hear the budgeting session- guess I’ll be stalking the healthy living world until I find someone that writes a recap :)
Congrats on winning- I’ve always wanted to try lululemon gear, too!

I was about to say the exact same thing! Hopefully someone will do a recap of the session for us!! :)

Kath, that sandwich looks absolutely amazing!! Enjoy the rest of your day at the Summit. All of us that aren’t there are busy stalking all of you that are blogs!! Hahaha

I’d like to hear more about the negativity session. Does it relate to personal or blogging?

GH strikes again! Is that a layer of mozzarella under the tomato in the 2nd s’wich?

I just have to tell you that I went from NEVER visiting my neighborhood Great Harvest to having serious cravings for their sandwiches every week because of you! So delish.

And I always want to ask the bread-slicing peeps at the front if they’ve heard of you, but I’m afraid of getting funny looks. How well-connected are all the stores? How many are there?

Those sandwiches looks AMAZING, I would die for one right now.

Looks like such fun! The budgeting session sounds like something I need to hear :) And the dough balls? Totally something I need to eat. Enjoy your weekend!

Those eats look fabulous! There’s a Great Harvest next door to the Trader Joes we sometimes shop at and I’m beginning to believe that I Will HAVE to make a stop in. Do all Great Harvest’s generally sell the same items or is it more individual?

11 KathEats August 20, 2011 at 4:09 pm

It really depends on the store – some are more similar than others

You find amazing places like the ‘nook’ to get the photo EVERYWHERE! No matter where you are, you make the food look like a dream!

If I were a sponsor or an attendee, I’d be kind of pissed if a founder won a doorprize. Aren’t those meant for people who actually paid to attend?

Reply

14 KathEats August 20, 2011 at 1:17 pm

No, not necessarily. It was an even playing field.

Reply

15 KathEats August 20, 2011 at 4:10 pm

Although you’ll probably want to know that I gave the prize back for another person to win

that’s so nice of you! :)

17 Marla August 20, 2011 at 9:44 pm

I think you did the right thing giving back the prize.
You gals get paid for HLS and to me it just doesn’t feel right
that one of the paid organizers/staff won a prize…just a little shady.
But I can tell from your blog you are 0% shady,so a high five on
being honorable! Ya did the right thing in my books!!

Reply

18 KathEats August 21, 2011 at 10:29 am

Actually I am not getting paid anything this year and I didn’t plan any of it so I’m not “staff”. I’m really just an attendee with travel sponsored by HLS as a founder.

Reply

19 Marla August 21, 2011 at 2:08 pm

Oh ,thanks for info!
I guess I still feel as a “founder” with free paid flights
and not having to pay a ticket like everyone else does ,I still
feel really strongly one should not be up for winning raffles
when others have saved to pay flights,pay the ticket etc to attend.

But hey we all have different options for sure about these things
(I remember Meghann had a fascinating debate going on in her comments
recently about the use of student discounts!)
So to each our own…..but thanks for letting us all express differing
opinions on your blog.I admire that! ;)

20 KathEats August 21, 2011 at 2:59 pm

This wasn’t a raffle – I didn’t enter the raffles. This was a game that I won.

Sorry,meant to write word game, not raffle!

I’m sure it doesn’t light a candle to Great Harvest bread but I am loving the bread from Le Pain Quotidien! Till recently I rarely ate bread in Mumbai because I was skeptic about ingredients/couldn’t find any that tasted satisfying! I am SO glad they opened an LPQ here: organic wholewheat flour and very hearty!

Looks like a great, informative day in Philly! :-) Enjoy your Lululemon. I found my favorite pair of yoga pants at American Eagle last year, and may have bought at least 3 pairs of them. Haha. I’m set for a while.

It’s like a rule that GH sandwiches will make me drool on my keyboard. Looks AWESOME!

GH Bread for lunch/?! How fantastic!! And lucky you to have 75$ to spend at lulu. I’d probably never buy their clothes.. unless I got a gift card. Jealous! Enjoy that dogfish!

Sounds like an awesome day so far! I’m jealous you got to try Shana’s treats! Good thing she gave me the recipe so I could try them all by my non-conference-attending self. :)

Rising above the negativity

And Budgeting…

Both awesome topics! If you hear of recap posts of them that begin to be posted on blogs around the ‘sphere, keep us posted b/c those sound like great topics.

And those balls. I am a Ball Queen (sounds awful, oh well…LOL) so I love seeing people’s versions and different recipes and what they whip up. Yum!

How did you like the Plain Jane? She is local here in Lancaster. I love the Purely Simple…i love how it is so chewy. You should stop in Lancaster while you are so close and go to The Lancaster Central Market…its the oldest indoor market in the nation.
