It's finally spring in Virginia, but not without the threat of one last big snow for the season. 'Snowquester' had an estimated foot of snow headed our way but only flitted 4 inches to the ground. The next day, all the snow was gone. Not complaining. This weekend boasted temperatures in the high 50's with spring flowers galore.
And only days before...
The snow hardly touched Baltimore where I spent two days celebrating National Nutrition Month with the students as UMBC's campus dietitian. They keep me on my toes. As a science magnet college, it's not unusual for an engineering major to come up and have a discussion with me about ATP production, basal metabolic rates, or the actual pathophysiology of diabetes. And by that I mean that happened last week. More than once. This sugar demo definitely had some students admitting their latest snacks were less than idea.
I also received the best box in the mail from the crew at Zonin Prosecco- the best way to end the week. I am so in love with this brand! It has amazing crisp apple notes and comes in adorable mini-single serving bottles that are perfect for a party. More on Zonin Prosecco in a later post. But until then, if you find it, buy it! They are in no way compensating me for saying this. I'm just being straight up serious.
I definitely made my way around the web this week. Here's where I've been guest blogging:
- The DC Wedding blog United With Love where I wrote a follow up post to my first blog about how wedding wellness is more than the number on the scale. This is actually the 3rd time I've been on UWL...the first? My own wedding feature. You know, with the produce bouquet.
- My latest clean cocktail on Limn & Lovely was all about the guys. This beer and bourbon cocktail is seriously amazing- even if you're not a beer OR bourbon girl!
- Chobani asked me to share my tips on how to stock a healthy kitchen on their site for National Nutrition month. I share my favorites to keep in my own house. Be sure to pin the list for later!
Has spring reached your house yet? Or are you denying the snow outside and buying daffodils?
