What I love about October, recipes and articles you may have missed, and this week’s menu.
Is Thursday really the start of October?! So hard to believe, especially since I’m still getting use out of my open-toe shoes (these are the important things, right?! Lol, JK!). When I think of October, my mind goes to #AllThingsPumpkin, comfy cozy sweaters and puffy vests, lots of soup, apples and pears, and the annual Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Food and Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE).
The conference is taking place in Nashville this coming weekend, which I am very excited for primarily to connect face to face with my dietitian nutritionist friends, most of whom I only “see” on social media. Plus, Nashville is supposed to be a happening place – in fact, my mother (a big country music fan) is super jealous! Keep your eyes out for all my Twitter, Instagram, and FB shares while I’m there – I can assure you there will be lots of food photos and probably a few new science-based nutrition facts too!
Before I head out of town, stay tuned for a couple of new posts this week. In the meantime, check out some of my fave links from last week and this week’s menu plan. Have a great week everyone!
