Meet the Bloggers

in All Posts

Good afternoon!  Lunch was pretty simple:  soup and salad!


I had 1 cup of the Wolfgang Puck Organic Tortilla soup, which I boosted up with about 1/3 block of baked tofu (leftovers from the weekend).


Plus a nice crunchy salad.


And I just snacked on my first mid-afternoon snackie:  Chobani + a crushed Kashi TLC bar.


Healthy Living Summit Update!


If you’re a reader of Carrots N Cake, you might have noticed that Tina was scoping out a site for the Healthy Living Summit. We should be announcing the details for the summit SOON (like, this week!).


The summit is envisioned as a weekend-long event in which members of our lovely blogging community (bloggers + readers alike) can get together and discuss all things food, fitness, and life-related! We’re going to have tons of great product demonstrations, taste-tests, informational speeches, panel presentations, a cocktail hour, a fun 5K run, and more!  Basically… it’s going to be awesome!


The idea for the summit started when Kath, Tina, Meghann, Heather, Jenna and I exchanged a few e-mails about how we all wanted to meet each other in real life.  A blog meet-up evolved into a 100-person conference, and next thing you know, we’ve secured sponsorship from a very popular national company!  It just goes to show you should DREAM BIG! 


Again, stay tuned for more info!


If you could meet any blogger in "real life", who would it be and why?  I am very excited to meet EVERYONE, but I really want to meet Heather from HangryPants.  She seems so smart, fun, and thoughtful, and I bet we’ll have some interesting conversations!  Oh, I’d also like to meet Nate from The Blog Stalker.  We could eat pancakes, watch Twilight, and drog (get drunk and blog) together. 



  • Mara @ What's For Dinner? June 9, 2009, 10:00 am

    Hmm… that's a tough one! I've already met bunches of bloggers that I really wanted to meet like Jenn (Eating Bender) and Rose (On a Lobster Placemat)… I'd love to meet Kath, and I think I am when she's in Chicago in July! OH and MizFit, just because she's a freaking rockstar! And of course, all of you summit-planning girls 🙂

  • Nicole ( June 9, 2009, 10:01 am

    I want to meet lots of bloggers! I can't choose. Everyone seems so fun and interesting.

  • Rose June 9, 2009, 10:04 am

    I don't know if I can choose! But I know I want to meet Heather Bakes because if it weren't for her – I wouldn't be blogging! Hers is the first blog I discovered!

  • Audrey W. June 9, 2009, 10:06 am

  • Anna June 9, 2009, 10:09 am

    Um, EVERYONE! Seriously, there are so many awesome and charismatic bloggers out there, all of whom would be a delight to meet. I'm really looking forward to the summit- I think it's going to be totally surreal, finally meeting everyone in person!

  • Kristi June 9, 2009, 10:15 am

    Without sounding like a stalker or anything, I would love to meet you, Meghann and Tina! These were the first 3 blogs that I started to read and start my own. I am so excited for the blogger summit! However, this will be my first time flying alone so I am a little nervous! 🙂

  • Brandi June 9, 2009, 10:16 am

    I can't possibly choose as I would love to meet all of you! For me, I have no one in my life that is as passionate about food and health as I am, so getting to meet anyone who is would be a wonderful treat.

  • Justine June 9, 2009, 10:50 am

    I'm REALLY hoping I can make it to Boston for the Summit! I looked into tickets and they're a little pricey and I may not be able to get outta here til Saturday AM, but I think it would be such a fun weekend!

  • Ryane June 9, 2009, 10:54 am

    I would love to meet you and Nate and help you get to the point of drogging! Haha, especially if this meet up is in Boston then there are many awesome places to go… Does a visit to the Sam Adams brewery count as Healthy Living?
    I also saw that Nate and Kelsey are into Karaoke and wouldn't you know Boston has a very popular sing shack right by faneuil hall!

  • Amanda's Eats June 9, 2009, 10:59 am

    I would actually love to meet you, Meghann, Tina, and Kath because you guys were the first blogs I started reading 😛 I'm actually in your area, just too chicken to initiate a meeting (hint hint) lol!

  • Natalie M. June 9, 2009, 11:01 am

    I'm totally hoping to meet all of you lovely ladies but I'd be geeked to meet the green monster goddess herself.. Angela of Oh She Glows! I just love her attitude. I'd also like to meet Roni of Roni's Weigh she seems awesome as well.. last but not least Meghann of the Inner Workings of a College Graduate since her blog was the very first food blog I ever stumbled across!

  • amy. June 9, 2009, 11:02 am

    obviiiiously, you !

  • Sheri June 9, 2009, 11:02 am

    I know I want to meet Kath because her blog is the first one I read and inpired me to start my own! Which will be very soon!

    But really I would like to meet everyone that I read on a daily basis. 🙂

  • A Toronto girl out West June 9, 2009, 11:13 am

    Tough question.

    I would have to say there are a slew of bloggers I would love to meet! People like RunSarah, Marianne (From French Fries to Flaxseeds), Angela (Oh She Glows), Leah (Simply Fabulous), Meghann, you, Danica (Chic Runner), Aron, Mara, Eating Bender . . .

    lol The list goes on!

    Here's hoping the summit ends up being somewhere accessible for me to get to. :o)

  • Hi! I'm Erin June 9, 2009, 11:25 am

    I just recently started reading blogs so I'm not sure who I'd like to meet in person. Maybe Charlotte from GFE. Part of me is interested in the blogger summit, but another part of me feels like I'd be a total odd-woman out.

  • HangryPants June 9, 2009, 11:27 am

    That is too sweet! I feel quite honored actually. I am excited to meet everyone and for everyone to meet Mark!

  • Leila June 9, 2009, 11:33 am

    yeah!! I can't wait to her all the details. but argh, it's too hard to just pick one. It's like that question "if you could have someone over for dinner (dead or alive) who would it be??" I never have an answer for that one!

  • runnerskitchen June 9, 2009, 11:41 am

    I was very intrigued by Tina's "event space" scouting comment. Can't wait to hear more about the blog summit details!

  • Betsy June 9, 2009, 11:42 am

    I want to hear more about this "event." YAY!!!

  • chandra June 9, 2009, 11:44 am

    I'm excited to meet everyone, I just hope I can make it and not be super shy & awkward!

  • Tina June 9, 2009, 11:51 am

    I am so pumped for more info on this. I have found so many wonderful things in the blogworld, including people, support and a huge amount of inspiration.

    You guys are so wonderful for organizing this!

  • Lauren June 9, 2009, 12:52 pm

    Oh and I forgot to mention, Caitlin, you are the ENTIRE reason behind the true start of my blogging experience. I really can't remember how I stumbled apon your page, but one day I found it and was immediately fascinated. If it wasn't for you, I would have not gotten to the point I am today in blogging! Thanks so much for everything! 🙂

  • ashley (sweetandnatural) June 9, 2009, 1:07 pm

    Too hard to answer that question! I'm excited about the summit! Can't wait for the details! 🙂

    I hope that I can come to the blogger summit!!

  • Lea June 9, 2009, 7:00 pm

    I am tots obsessed with food blogs and I don't even have one of my own. I just love hopping from one blog to another and taking a peak into everyone's world. I'm such a blog stalker.

    I would love love to meet everyone I follow. But peeps on top of my list are Erin (Care to Eat), Brooke (Homegirlcaneat), Sarah (lovinmytummy), Mica (micapie), and you of course. ^^

  • The Healthy Hostess June 9, 2009, 7:25 pm

    All of them! Everyone is inspiring in their own way! 🙂 I LOVE that you are doing this! Great idea!

  • Joelle (Chasing Pavements) June 9, 2009, 7:43 pm

    Oh my gosh, that blogger summit sounds like so much fun! What a great idea.. do you girls have any idea when it will be?

  • Anna Webb June 9, 2009, 8:26 pm

    I'm going to be honest and say the blogger I want to meet the most is Jenna of Eat Live Run. Her blog was the first one I ever stumbled upon and she opened my eyes up to this amazing healthy world. She also seems like one of the coolest people in the world!

    From there, I've went on to become a true follower of Caitlin (YOU!), Meghann of Inner Workings of a College Graduate, Gina of The Fitnessista, Kath of Kath Eats Real Food, Brigette of Yogurt and Berries, and Sarah of LovIN My Tummy!

    I give every blog a chance and have so much fun discovering new and exciting blogs to follow. I'd love to meet everyone. 🙂

  • Mariposa June 10, 2009, 6:00 am
