Waiting for our flight to take off for Chicago! Iâ€™m getting excited for the Healthy Living Summit, but itâ€™s also very stressful because Iâ€™m helping to organize it. I just hope everything goes smoothly.
We were delayed a bit so Megan and I started to check out dining options.
People often ask me if itâ€™s difficult to be a vegetarian, and honestly â€“ I think itâ€™s hardest in the airport. Airport food blows to begin with, but there really seems to be a lack of healthy vegetarian options.
However, I spied a Mexican restaurant and put together a decent meal.
Brown rice, black beans, and pico de gallo on a bed of romaine lettuce. Pretty delicious and filling. Maybe airport food isnâ€™t THAT bad â€“ you just have to get creative. 🙂
In other newsâ€¦ the Charlotte airport further redeemed itself by having a frozen yogurt place. I got a small vanilla with strawberries.
Healthy Living Summit
Maybe youâ€™re wondering what HLS exactly is! Well, about a year and a half ago, Kath, Tina, Meghann, Heather, Jenna, and I decided to put together a 100-person event in Boston in August 2009. It was lots of fun to meet other bloggers + readers for the first time and explore a new city together. Hereâ€™s last yearâ€™s recaps:
- Thursday Events
- Friday Events â€“ Part I, Part II (Cocktail Party)
- Saturday Events â€“ Part I, Part II, Part III
- Sunday Events â€“ Part I, Part II
This year, weâ€™ve expanded to 200 attendees and will offer a two-track agenda so people can attend events that interest them. Weâ€™re offering a bigger variety of events, such as photography lessons, yoga, and discussions about issues in the blog world. I hope people enjoy the changes! 🙂
