  1. Oh, I wish my mom worked close enough that we could have wonderful picnics. Seth came up and visited me for lunch today, but we got totally not healthy chinese. 🙂

    I love the way it makes it feel like not a work day… at least for a little while.

    So I have a request…Could you make a list of all the foods that you use to healthifiy your meals and where you get them. For example the name and where you buy your low carb pitas and such. I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately, and I’d like start making some replacements in our diet.

    Thanks so much Fervent Foodie. I’m a big fan!

      1. That way, after all this fabulous conferences you attend, you can update us with the most fabulous products and where to get them. Looking forward to it. Thanks Mare.

  2. 1. I’m jealous of lunch with Michelle. 2. Let’s make this cookout on Saturday happen. 3. Did I win the chocolate or what?
