Well, guys I’m blogging at you from Kalamazoo!
Traveling was surprisingly pleasant considering the weather lately. I was really expecting delays or the airports to be a mess, but it was all smooth sailing.
I did a good job managing travel snack attacks, too. I took my own advice (#8 on Tips to Manage Airport Snack Attacks) and packed a few things, one of them being pistachios, which has been my new go-to since buying a humongous bag at Costco.
When I landed in Detroit for my 2-hour layover, I found a seat (next to an outlet, of course,) ordered a big salad and got some work done.
I’ve been really proud of myself these past few days. I was starting to feel a little out of control in the food department so I made a few changes — namely I stopped worrying about food journaling — and just decided to focus on smart choices. It’s working! I’m feeling all sorts of motivated again!
Side note: Embrace Change and Adjust still in full effect. ;)
Anyway, I wish it wasn’t so cold and snowy — I’d love to explore town and take one of my travel runs but between my leg and the weather it’s a no-go.
Tomorrow I have a jam-packed day interacting with Kellogg. After dinner tonight, I’m really looking forward to it. It was so refreshing to be around such accomplished women.
Tomorrow evening I fly back to Baltimore and then Thursday I head to the ALDI Test kitchens. We have a jam-packed schedule! I’m still not sure what to expect, but the agenda is sprinkled with words like “Tastings,” “Challenges,” and “Tours” — all of which sound good to me! Oh and there’s going to be a food stylist giving a presentation so I’m hoping to pick up a few tips for GreenLiteBites.
Speaking of, I was able to get one of my posts done on the flight today. Click here to check out my Simple Fried Millet idea. Don’t know what millet is? Don’t worry, neither did I!
Right now I’m writing this and getting distracted by Girls on HBO. I don’t watch this show enough. Lena Dunham is amazing!
Anyway, I need any and all questions for ALDI. So far I have one from SuzzaneU on my first post:
Is Aldi’s owned by Trader Joe’s? Maybe you can find that out. I love Aldi’s. I did an experiment and bought the same groceries one week at Martin’s and the next week at Aldi’s. I saved $75 on the exact same items at Aldi’s. LOVE IT!
So besides the ALDI/Trader Joe’s connection what other questions can I ask on your behalf?
OK, off to bed I go. I’m exhausted!
