Going a Million Miles per hour

Whew-its been a couple of whirlwind weeks!

I had finals, finals cramming, an quick trip to Michigan and a handful of birthdays to celebrate. I've checked out some fun new spots in Boston, got some amazing things to eat and drink, and plan on sharing some/all of it with you someday soon. (Sneak preview-my new favorite place for cocktails is Clink in the Liberty hotel. They have a list of delicious cocktails that are each under 150 kcals).

Libertea and Spatini are my faves
I was awarded Outstanding Dietetic Student in a Didatic Program by the MDA, which was a huge honor. I will also be the Treasurer of MSDA in the upcoming year.

I got some gorgeous Moo Cards courtesy of Foodbuzz [Have you checked out Healthbuzz yet?]

so excited

so legitimate

mini moos!
Looking Ahead:
-This summer I am working at the bakery, and doing two social media internships with All-Access Internships (a website designed to help dietetics students) and Rebecca Scritchfield, (a RD in DC) I am very excited to see how these two use social media, and plan on learning a lot.

-I'm checking places off my list of things to do and see. I just started a 30 day pass to Boston Body Pilates, and my marathon training plan will start soon. Hopefully I will have more time to do some experimenting in the kitchen and hang out in the sun with some amazing friends.

-I'm super excited to volunteer and attend TedX Cambridge. From their website:

How Do You Eat?

Sunday, May 16th, 2010
MIT Stata Center | Kirsch Auditorium
Cambridge, MA

TEDxCambridge presents “How do you eat?” a celebration of food, Sunday, May 16th at the MIT Stata Center. We’re bringing together chefs, psychologists, writers, designers and engineers for a surprising look at science, art and the future of food.

The event is inspired in part by Jamie Oliver’s TED Prize wish “to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity.”

“How do you eat?” is a question meant to be interpreted broadly. We are reaching out to an eclectic pool of speakers including Boston-area chefs, restaurateurs, biologists, psychologists, engineers, designers, artists, writers, and food historians. We’re particularly interested in content related to: sustainability; international development; the global obesity epidemic; the science of food; cutting-edge food technology; architecture, design & food; and food.

They have a great line-up of speakers, and while they will all be amazing, I am especially excited to hear Kenji Alt and Chandler Burr.

-I also am excited to attend the Food for Your Whole Life Symposium in New York City as a media blogger with four fabulous nutrition bloggers–Janel, Jessica, Lindsey, and Corinne. Dr. Oz, is headlining, along with other renowned health experts, including Mollie Katzen, Michael Roizen, David Katz, Roger Clemens (not the pitcher), Karen Collins RD, Keri Gans RD, James Joseph, Petra Kolber, Joan Sabate, Brian Wansink, and Elisa Zied RD. It's going to be a great event, and the four of us will be live-blogging the entire event!

Stay Tuned!
What's the near future hold for you?

Congrats on your award! That is great news. I am sure it is well deserved. I just love the moo cards with the prints on the back. Enjoy your summer and that symposium. I got to hear David Katz speak once and I really enjoy his presentations.
