FNCE '10 Day Three

Another day at FNCE filled with presentations and travels through the expo.

Today, at the California almonds booth, Ellie Krieger, came by to make a dish!

She waved at me, I was excited! :)

The girls and I had a day filled with discussions including the Fat Debate with Walter Willet, as well as many others.

I went to a great presentation on celiac disease and Non-Celiac Gluten-Sensitivity(NC- GS). Today, I learned that since the 1970s, Celiac disease and N-C GS cases have doubled every 15 years, to the point where 1% of the population is gluten free!

For a brain break to we went to Starbucks at the Westin. They had gluten free coffeecake and muffins! I didn't know Starbies had gluten free products, did you all?

We then decided to finish it off with a ladies dinner at Gaslight Brasserie.

I had the french onion soup and shared the roasted apple and goat cheese salad, with a friend.

I was starving, since I only had two pieces of fruit and some little 'trials' here and there all day, so I also ordered the mussels. The broth was garlicy and delicious! We even ordered the creme brulee with four spoons for dessert!

A perfect way to end our first Food Nutrition Conference and Expo!
