{EVENT RECAP}:
Healthy in Houston

Here's a recap of Healthy in Houston, the first event for the Houston Food Blogger Collective.

The event was held at Dean’s Downtown.  Gorgeous.  I KNOWWWW.

I was AHH-MAZED by the turnout.

60+ people there to hear all about some of Houston’s healthiest finds.

The layout of the evening was mingle-panel-raffle for awesome prizes-mingle. 

Mingling was accompanied by light bites generously provided by our sponsors…

Kale Salad & Ginger Quinoa Chicken Stir Fry (Snap Kitchen)
Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting (Ripe Cuisine)
Party Favors (Cold-pressed juice from Squeezed)

We had four health/nutrition/fitness experts who made up our panel…

  1. Stephanie Hoban (Ripe Cuisine-Houston’s only 100% fully plant-based, vegan food truck)
  2. Angela Anderson (Hippo Kitchen-provides nutritionally supportive meals to cancer patients)
  3. James Dang (Washington Gym- the antithesis of big gyms…no treadmills here)
  4. Lindsay Moore (Naturally Nourished- redefining your relationship with food through intuitive balanced eating)

One of the questions Claire and I asked the panel was: “Most of us enter the new year with health- and fitness-related resolutions. As nutrition and fitness experts, what have you all resolved to do in the new year?”

One response was to drink more bone broth! Especially bone broth from black chickens, which are rich in the antioxidant carnosine.  This was new knowledge to me so I thought I’d share and hear your thoughts!

Other topics that came up included hemp seeds, The Bachelor and…wild boar.  We just covered it all.

We were so thrilled with how the event turned out. 

We couldn’t have done it without the help of Ahrif Sarumi.  He just so happens to put on an Interactive Dinner Series called Aces of Taste, a multi-course dinner series featuring Houston chefs.  If you live in Houston…get in on that.

So excited for our next event! HUGE hug to everyone who came out!
