It’s been a week since attending my first FNCE (Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo for those of you not in the nutrition field).  WOAH! I loved every single second of the experience, and living in the host city made it extra special. I’ve never felt more assured of my career choice, nor have I ever completely GEEKED out so many times in one weekend.  Spotting Robin Plotkin and Regan Jones wandering the expo floor on Tuesday before the closing session was the icing on my FNCE cake (or should I say ‘brulee’? #lifegoal)!

I HAD to get a pic when I saw these two at the Expo! Thanks Regan and Robin!! 🙂

I’m not sure how I let almost six years pass without attending this conference, but rest assured that won’t happen ever again.  Not only was I able to sample the latest and trendiest items in the nutrition market and hear from experts in the field at countless educational sessions, but I had the opportunity to network at a few fun events surrounding the conference.  I’m still in awe of the whole thing, but behold me in all of my nerdiness below:

I ran into my old colleague, Megan! Total Superfoodies at the Social Media hub.

I was invited to attend the Food & Nutrition Magazine’s rooftop reception/Tweet Up AND I won a social media award! Yay!

I was able to meet some of the Food & Nutrition mag staff! Super awesome ladies!

I ran into a former preceptor at the F&N mag Tweet Up! So great to see you Neva!

Perhaps my favorite session of all was the closing session! I am a HUGE fan of Food Network’s Chopped.  When I say huge fan, I mean I could literally watch the show all day, every day and never get bored.  Someone needs to invent a la carte cable, just so that I can purchase that one station because I no longer have cable TV.  Marcus Samuelsson is a renowned New York chef and one of the judges of the Chopped series, and I was fortunate to hear his inspirational story to close out FNCE.  His mission to cook and eat with a ‘spiritual compass’ truly exemplifies everything we as dietitians are all about: choosing locally sourced foods and ingredients, preventing waste, enabling the less fortunate and educating others. If you don’t know him or his story-research it ASAP!

    Of course, I had to be front and center for the closing session!

I’m so thankful for all of the memories and I’m looking forward to many more FNCEs in the future!  Stay tuned for my upcoming post about the Hatcher Family Dairy farm that I had the pleasure of touring on behalf of the National Dairy Council! Until the next Best Bite…

My First FNCE!
