Iâ€™ve had a very fun and informative day here in Philadelphia with New Harvest!
Some fun facts. Did you know thatâ€¦
Do you eat the recommended two 3.5oz servings of fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, sardines, etc.) per week? Iâ€™d say I do a good job with this â€” I love my seafood!
The morning started with a presentation from Jenna Bell, a Registered Dietitian (RD) and spokesperson for New Harvest.
I loved all the presentations today â€” as someone who is studying to become an RD, it was cool to actually understand some of the science talk! ðŸ™‚
Hereâ€™s the deal:
Apparently the New Harvest supplement is made from yeast â€” but not the same kind that makes beer ðŸ˜‰ Heh. Bummer!
While I donâ€™t think I need this supplement, if you are a vegetarian or someone who never eats fish, this would be a great way to get in your EPA omega 3â€™s. Plus, itâ€™s sustainable (did you know it takes 25-50 kg of wild caught fish to make 1 kg of fish oil?) and thereâ€™s no weird fishy aftertaste! Check out the New Harvest site for more info ðŸ™‚
After the presentations, we headed to the Reading Terminal Market for an awesome vegetarian cooking class at La Cucina!
Jenna and I were put in charge of the sweet potato ravioli and it was pretty much epic.
Yeah, weâ€™re pros. No big deal.
â€¦Except for that one time that Jenna put it on the wrong setting and we almost ruined everyoneâ€™s lunch. ðŸ˜‰
Look at her. So mischievous. Just waiting. And plotting.
But I knew what she was up to. And I wasnâ€™t going to stand for it.
Obviously I saved the day. Donâ€™t believe what Jenna says ðŸ˜‰
Heh. Success! ðŸ˜‰
Which turned into:
Also on the menu â€” amazing bread, caramelized onions, fig jam, and goat cheese appetizers:
And asparagus and a delicious salad!
What a fun day ðŸ™‚
I just ran the Rocky steps:
â€¦and now Iâ€™m headed to my BFF Turnerâ€™s place for dinner before I hit the road for Annapolis â€” my first half marathon is in the a.m., GAH!!! Wish me luck! ðŸ™‚
