As well received as my Healthy Living Summit Cocktail Party recap was, I decided to hold off on a recap of day two until I have time to fully devote myself to a complete writeup of the Saturday sessions. However, that doesn’t mean you should miss out on everything. And who doesn’t like food posts?
Before my trip, I wanted to enjoy a tasty little treat, so I whipped up my traditional pre-flight beer and snack!!
I also did my best to eat the rest of the spinach before I left.
At the home of Ali, we whipped out all the stops (aka the baked goods):
Let’s just say that it was a bit of a smorgasbord.
- Wawa Shorti with Roast beef, cheddar cheese, light on the mayo, lettuce, tomato, onion, salt, pepper, oregano. I always get this when I go to Wawa. It is like a second nature, entering it on the touchpad.
- Wawa Diet Raspberry Iced Tea
Can someone PLEASE explain to me why there is no raspberry iced tea, diet or otherwise, to be found in North Carolina? I can’t even get the Snapple kind…. If you know where to get some, PLEAES email, call, text, or tweet me. ASAP. This is not a joking kind of request. This is so heartfelt I feel it deep in my heart.
The highlights of the cocktail party food were already shown, minus one: Philly Cheesesteak Empanadas. I didn’t take pictures of these, because I was shoving them down my gullet. Imagine a philly cheesesteak. then fry it.
You get the idea.
Breakfast in the morning was sponsored by Attune Foods, and featured mostly a wide array of their cereals, fresh fruit, hardboiled eggs, and yogurt.
I could’ve eaten the lunch for days.
GIANT ups to Great Harvest bread. Which filled my belly totally and heartily. The mozzarella was so creamy, and the onions in the cous cous…. ooh, girl.
Snacktime was not really my favorite, but I partook because who don’t want no free foods?
To be honest, though, there was a much more important meal waiting for me at home, after the summit. Something I’d been seeking out since I arrived in Philly. The holy grail of Philly cuisine.
I went a little off the beaten path with the Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteak and was rewarded handsomely with spicy, cheese, chickeny goodness. Something about the rolls up North, they just know how to do it right. And, even though it wasn’t in empanada format, it was at least as (if not much, much more) delicious.
What’d you eat this weekend that was delicious?
Do you have any favorite foods/drinks from growing up that you can’t get now wherever you live (due to a move or [gasp!!] someone stopped producing them?)
