Last week I spent some time in Boulder and Aurora, Colorado, at the FitSocial Conference fitness bloggers conference. Here are some highlights on the food and a recipe created by Chef Paolo Neville! I did take all of the photos with my iPhone, so they are rather small unfortunately.
A quick plug for my FitSocial product sponsors:
We had lunch at the Whole Foods Market in Boulder a couple different times. This place is amazing…and very, very busy!
I think they need to build another 1 or 2 Whole Foods Stores in Boulder! It is a very popular lunch spot.
Thursday night some of us went to eat at Shine. The restaurant features a completely gluten-free menu along with diary-free and vegan options.
Shine features local and organic foods, and many are fermented and cultured so it makes your belly happy, too (if you don’t have yeast allergies).
Friday Morning coffee at Flatiron Coffee. They make almond milk lattes!!
I tried a Chia Pod from Whole Foods (Vanilla Bean flavor). It’s a dairy free and gluten free chia pudding made with coconut milk – yummy!
On Sunday, we got to watch Chef Paolo demonstrate healthy food prep. He made a wonderful Asian Styled Quinoa Salad (I’m sharing his recipe!). I couldn’t eat it because of the soybeans in it, but it looked and smelled amazing.
Here’s Chef Paolo’s recipe for the Asian Style Quinoa Salad, Enjoy!
