Time keeps ticking.
If you’re wondering, yes that cabbage + beans did a number on my abdomen today! I felt some rumblin’!! But I’m fine 🙂
Was still hungry for snacks…..and more fiber…..come 4PM. I packed some fresh produce to munch because I was on my way to the Charlotte Dietetic Association meeting and wanted to fill up a bit.
Apple. Carrot. Trail Mix from TJ’s. Crunch!
An hour later I arrive at my destination: the CDA Social Networking Night at Crave, a dessert bar in Uptown Charlotte. I like the CDA meetings that are informative, but I LOVE the social nights 🙂
I started out with a delicious fizzy mocktail –
And surveyed the spread. [Unfortunately my camera got a buzz from the mocktail because none of my photos turned out well!!]
HUMMUS, olives, jalapenos, red peppers, blue cheese and pita platter
Sliiiiiiiders (two kinds)
What I believe was artichoke dip with some chips…
I chatted with Kelsey for a while and then Caitlin, MS, RD arrived and then I decided to get some food. I wasn’t really hungry but I knew I should eat some dinner or I’d be really hungry later! Plus I needed some real food before I dug into dessert
A pile of hummus, some complements, 2 chips with dip and some pitas. I went back for seconds on the hummus!
Then it was time for the desserts – the
craving reason why we came to Crave!
And a huge platter of bite-sized desserts. Love that they were bite-sized for optimal sampling!
I tried a few varietals – creme brulee, apple crumble, a chocolately thing, cheesecake. In all honesty, I’ve had better desserts 🙁 I didn’t quite finish them all.
But I had a great time networking!!
I’ve spent the past HOUR catching up on emails from the day – whew! Still have more to tackle, plus comments. Wish me luck!
