Healthy Conference Foods: Sweat Pink IDEA World Blogfest

Though we were provided with certain foods by conference sponsored, it was absolutely our choice to eat those foods, and we were under no obligation to discuss them unless we so desired. I am mentioning my favorites so that you can have some idea as to what was made available! Opinions are absolutely my own.

Um, can I just really quick say a HUGE AND HEARTY hello to all my new readers?? I feel like the blog has grown a ton in the past few days (no doubt thanks to Blogfest, but I hope that many of you will stick around!).Thank you all for all the Facebook/Instagram/Twitter love (and don’t forget I’m on Pinterest as well!) as well! I love connecting with you all in the ways that you like to interact the most–some people like to comment on the blog but stay off social media, some people I connect with almost exclusively on IG or otherwise, and I think that is great–I love the variety and the opportunity and the complexity of the interactions that each medium engenders. 

NOW DON’T LEAVE ME!!

How do you maintain your healthy eating when at all-day conferences? Well, first off, you surround yourself with people who make there living eating healthfully, secondly, you bring snacks, and third, you involve companies that make it their mission to make healthy food accessible. If only we had been given DeskCycles to combat being sedentary! Oh wait, we did workout a few times lol.

Thank you as always to Jenn!

What I Ate Wednesday: Healthy Conference Foods at Blogfest

Healthy Conference Foods Provided at Sweat Pink Blogfest and IDEA World WIAW

Today, I am going to try to squish three days of eats into one post, so bear with me. Normally, I go into quite a bit of detail about each offering, but this time, I am going to attempt to keep myself to just a blurb about my eats. If there is something that grabs your interest, let me know in the comments, and I will be happy to elaborate!

I do have one comment about the food that we ate while at Blogfest. On the whole, I was quite happy with the provided eats–I thought that they were rather healthy options. That said, I would have loved to have seen WAY more fresh options like fruits and vegetables offered throughout the day. I understand that we were (of course) being sponsored by certain companies, but this girl needs a salad! That said, when vegetables were provided, they were GREATLY appreciated, such as at the Nestle lunch, with the Truitt hummus, and at the breakfast cereal bar. That said, I do realize the struggle of offering foods that will not go bad throughout the day, but if they were able to offer us yogurt, I feel like they could have put out a few veggie trays!

My other comment with regards to the foods made available would be that they were not all that vegan/lactose intolerant friendly. Again, Truitt was great in offering some of these options, but considering you are in a room of bloggers that lead organic, vegan, gluten free, etc lifestyles, I would have liked to have seen a bit more made available for them. 

Please note that this is not all that I ate during these days. I am focusing on the most interesting eats. You all know that I’m a snacker!!

Wednesday Eats (Traveling and Pre Blogfest)

Travel Eats: Intelligentsia Half Caff Coffee and Yummy Health Bar (one of my last sadface)

Healthy Travel Food with Intellegentsia Coffee and Yummy Health Coconut Bar

Coffee is always necessary. It was an ass-crack of dawn flight, so I knew that I needed to spread things out a little bit. Thankfully, not only was my coconut Yummy Health bar the perfect amount of sweet without being overpowering, it tasted like Mounds/Almond Joy/Macaroon and filled me up with protein and fiber! I had another few snacks throughout the morning, but without this, I think I would have been lost.

Lunch: The Filling Station at the JW Marriott (with Heather and Beth)

Chopped Chicken Salad The Filling Station Los Angeles Suzlyfe

I was really pumped about this Chicken Chopped Salad a) because I was starving b) because of the company that I was in and c) because of the ingredients listed: pumpkin seeds, jicama, corn, tomatoes, green papaya, chicken, and lettuces. And then I got it and not only did it have the cheese on it that I asked be removed, it didn’t have pumpkin seeds or corn on it and very little of everything else!! Not so happy, and too expensive. After we went to the expo, I got a Blackberry Hibiscus Refresher and popcorn at Starbucks.

Dinner: Brick Betty (Come back Friday!!!) Dinner at Live Basil

Brick Betty Fitness Pro and Blogger Dinner at Blogfest

Jessica, Amy, Debbie, Jill, Myself, Tiffany, Beth, Stephanie, and Lisa at our meet up for Brick Betty

SO excited to tell you about Brick Betty (on Friday!!), but for now, I’ll tell you about Live Basil, which was a Blaze-esque build your pizza and salad place with other nibbles in the midst of LA Live (where the LA Convention Center, Staples Center, and the JW Marriott, where we were staying, was). We got various pizzas and salads, and I went to TOWN. Seriously. I was so full at the end!

Healthy Conference Foods Thursday (BlogFest)

Post Run Snack: Truitt Family Farms 

Truitt Family Foods Hummus Cup

Thank you to Truitt Family Foods for sponsoring our fun run #BeTruBlogfest as well as making the snacks available in the conference room along with chips and baby carrots (I took SO MANY). The hummus is shelf stable and delicious (great texture) and I also loved the bean puree dips. I think they are mostly in CA, but I brought some home to Alex!

Snack: Yoplait Plenti Blended Greek Yogurt (Blueberry)

Yoplait Plenti Blueberry Greek Yogurt with Pumpkin Seeds, Oats, and Fruit Suzlyfe

This stuff is pretty cool–nonfat blended Greek yogurt with pumpkin seeds, oats, and fruit incorporated! Nice and chewy, and loved that there was texture.

Lunch: Nestle Lean Cuisine Lunch

Nestle Lean Cuisine Luncheon Blogfest Idea World Suzlyfe

I am going to concentrate on what was great about this lunch, which was the sides. Heirloom salad with cotija cheese and cilantro; tricolor cauliflower rice, quinoa, and chickpea “pizza-nella” (rather than panzanella) salad; cooked broccoli rabe with mangos, peppers, and avocado lime cilantro sauce. Not pictured but also really yummy: chocolate chip quinoa cookies and stone fruits with passion fruit glaze (didn’t need the glaze, but whatever). 
Cauliflower Rice Pizza-nella Salad at Nestle Luncheon Sweat Pink BlogfestWith regards to the focus of the meal, the frozen dinners, I was less than impressed, to be honest. But the sides were fantastic.

SnackNutrition Expo 

Kashi Sprouted Grains Cereal IDEA World Nutrition Expo

I hosed #allthesamples samples, but I really loved the new Kashi Sprouted Grains and Sweet Potato Sunshine cereals. I went back a few times, I’m ok with it.

Dinner: Rosa Mexicano at LA Live

Rosa Mexicano LA Live Los Angeles Shrimp (Camarones) Ceviche

Table-side guacamole, a shizzzz ton of chips, jicama, ceviche de camarones (shrimp ceviche), and El Jimador Blanco + club soda. And I got the waiter to be totally scared of me. Worth it because I got what I wanted πŸ˜€

Dessert: Sweat Pink/Fit Approach Party at IDEA World Urban Party

Brownies Blogfest Suzlyfe

Chocolate chip cookie and sugar cookie as well as fruit and chocolate shavings. The Sweat Pink Ladies had a pre-party area with food and stuff (we were too hungry to wait, thus Rosa Mexicano!), but we helped ourselves to desserts!

Healthy Conference Foods Friday (BlogFest)

Breakfast #1: Starbucks and Oats (with a side of blogging and blends)

Starbucks LA Live Breakfast with Clover Coffee and Oats

I’m now addicted to the Sbux Clover machine. You can make a grande decaf coffee with 1/5 caff coffee, and it a thing of beauty, glory, and no bitterness, and was $3. SOLD. Brought the oats with me, and I needed something easy before a workout (with Kaia Fit). Extra flavor? Sitting next to friends from all over the country while blogging.

Breakfast #2: General Mills Breakfast Bar

General Mills Cereal Bar Blogfest General Mills Cereal Breakfast Bar Blogfest IDEA World

Post Kaia workout, I went to town on some General Mill cereals (all sorts, including honey nut cheerios and cinnamon toast crunch), Yoplait Greek 100, and fruit. Wish they had made this available throughout the day!

Lunch: Morningstar Farms Lunch

Morningstar Farms Lunch Sweat Pink Blogfest

Something that struck me was a total lack of veggies at this lunch! But the prepared foods were tasty–I especially liked the buffalo chick’n pizza and the Indian spiced burger stuffed pita. But considering how focused they are on plant based lifestyles…. where were the plants??

Snack:

Siggi’s, Fiber One and Nutrition Expo

Siggi's Skyr Yogurt Blogfest IDEA World Healthy Conference Food

If you don’t love Siggi’s yogurt, we can’t be friends (if you are lactose intolerant or vegan, I understand, but I still don’t trust you). Plus, Siggi HIMSELF was there, and he is adorable! And so freaking tall and Scandinavian (reminds me of some of my best friends).

Dinner: (From Saturday, as it was a bit more exciting)

In-N-Out Burger +  Ange’s fries πŸ˜€ + Bear Naked Granola

In N Out Burger Glendale Galleria IDEA World Weekend

YAY I got to try In-N-Out, and I LOVED it. I liked that the burgers were larger than Shake Shack, and there was no butter involved. This was what I think of when I think of a diner burger, and it was fantastic. And I helped Ange with her fries and then followed it up with a sample bag of new Salted Caramel Apple Bear Naked Granola, which was great–not too sweet or salty!

That’s a lot of food, and I still could go on! But I want to say thank you again to the Fit Approach/Sweat Pink team for organizing the incredible sponsors, and to Tiffany for bringing in Truitt foods. What would we have done without you all?

Don’t answer that!

    When I eat dairy and Siggis is one of the only yogurts I eat as my tummy seems to handle it better and it is so delicious! It is one of the things I really miss I could have yogurt every day (my girls do, sometimes multiple times a day). I add it dairy back in and my tummy did fine in Ireland last year but when we got back I was so miserable and bloated again. I try to balance it though now, TRY being the key word.
    I had in and out burger once 10 years ago and I didn’t understand the hype and didn’t even finish my meal but my hubby did.

      Siggi himself told us that those with dairy issues typically handle it better because the majority of the lactose has been removed due to the process that they use. I’m sure that your tummy just couldn’t handle all the extra crap added into American dairy. I liked in n out, but I wouldn’t say that it was the be all end all!

    I’ve never eaten at any of those burger places (we don’t have them in Canada and for some reason we don’t stop there when we go down south). I’m curious! Also, Kashi cereal gives me wicked diarrhea. Probably because it’s high fibre and I tend to over do the servings.

    I would have been surprised/disappointed by some of those foods offered too. The lean cuisine really shocks me but again, I guess it makes sense because they are one of the sponsors so they have to promote those foods. When I go visit California one day, I need to try In N Out. I’m not a huge fan of “:fast food” burgers (I prefer the big juicy ones rather than flat) but everyone raves about them and I love Shake Shack, so I would give it a shot.

    Thanks for recapping the important things-THE FOOD. In-and-out is so good. I had it once a few years ago now, yummm. Also Siggis is the bomb. I’m glad to hear Siggi man himself is awesome.

    Ah! I still haven’t tried In-and-Out! Obviously I’ve heard other amazing things about it, so it goes on the list for next time I’m in LA. Think it lives up to the hype, even as a “diner burger?”

      I loved it as a cleaner tasting burger–you are tasting burger, and the ratios are great. I like it better than Shake Shack, which made me feel greasy.

      I’m sad too.

    I am in heaven over this post!!! Really intrigued by this Sweet Potato Sunshine cereal – can I order it on Instacart from Whole Foods? Haha – but really, will be attempting. I also ALWAYS eat my oats out of a starbys cup with a plastic spoon (which is probably deathly)! They give me so much attitude when I ask for hot water (or, anything for that matter). Love it!

      You MUST try the new Kashi cereals. They are amaze MUST. And just order a short hot water. They’ve not given me too much attitude for that one!

    Breakfast. The General Mills breakfast bar and all those yummy cereals. I get the feeling that you and I (if I was there) would be reluctant to leave that food selection.

    For me, if it was possible, I would quite happily replace lunch and dinner with breakfast 2, then breakfast 3. πŸ˜‰
