Hello again! Thanks for finding the time in your busy day to catch up with me. I’m so glad you could make it to our lunch date again this week! I just flew back from the annual Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Food and Nutrition Conference and Exposition (FNCE for short) last night. I am saving my photos from the week for my upcoming FNCE recap post, so we’re light on pictures today!
Here’s my collection of articles and recipes from the last week, from what to eat before you workout to a maple-apple pecan crisp (with an optional dose of boozy bourbon).
I Still Need Your Help!
I was nominated for two WEGO Health Activist Awards (Best Blog & Best Twitter), and I need your help to win!
If you can, please take a moment to endorse my nomination:
