How is it Monday already? We had a fun weekend over here with great weather and lots of good food! How was yours?
On Friday, I went to the Charlotte Regional meeting for dietitians. It’s basically an all-day conference with speakers, break-out sessions, cooking demonstrations, networking, trying new samples, etc. It was my first official “RD” event but it was fun and lots of learning. I went in thinking I wouldn’t know anyone, but I actually saw quite a few familiar faces! There were some great talks about vegetarian diets and typical questions about which nutrients may be deficient or low, the role of protein in type 2 diabetes, and gut health, and local food initiatives in Charlotte. So glad to live in this wonderful city!
After the meeting, I hopped in the car with some friends and we headed down to Savannah for the weekend! It turned out to be the perfect weekend to do so – sunny and 70 both Saturday and Sunday! Note: You are about to see a lotttt of pictures of food.
We spent Saturday hosting our own food tour, walking along the river, checking out restaurants and bars, spending time on roof tops, and sharing lots of yummy food and drink. The best way to explore, right?
We had no plans or time constraints, and just planned as we went along. We shared smaller meals and apps at places when we were hungry and just enjoyed the sunshine! I definitely got my share of delicious seafood.
On Sunday, we stopped by Tybee Island to hang out on the beach for a bit so we could see the ocean. We grabbed a late lunch with some pizza before hitting the road and heading back to Charlotte.
And now, I’m ready to sleep for days, and gearing up for a busy week ahead. There were minimal servings of fruits and vegetables this weekend, so I can tell you that my body is now craving all of the veggies. I foresee lots of salad BOWLS in my meal planning this week! But I wouldn’t trade the good food and memories this weekend (and lack of fruits, vegetables) for anything!
Thanks to Meg, for letting me link up for Week(end) in Review!
What was the highlight of your weekend?
