I love blogger meetups. I love them even more when they involve food and fun people, which luckily, they absolutely always seem to do. Today was Fitbloggin’ Local Meetup #2, also known as the Breakfast Summit so graciously hosted by Annelies and Attune Foods. They welcomed ten lovely bloggers into their beautiful office for a morning of breakfast and chatting.
There were two breakfast bars set up, each featuring a variety of Attune cereals (one collection was gluten-free), fresh fruit, different milks, and yogurt.
We all helped ourselves to breakfast, and then sat down around the table to eat and chat.
My bowl had vanilla Wallaby yogurt, two different kinds of gluten free cereals (I’m not gluten free, but ended up at that breakfast bar and the cereals were still great), blueberries, and strawberries.
Supplemented generously by some cinnamon graham crackers and Justin’s honey peanut butter (or was it almond? Either way it was delicious). I LOVE graham crackers. I could eat those things all day.
In attendance were a few familiar faces from Fitbloggin’ Local Part 1 back in late June…
As well as some new friends I was happy to meet!
We had a chat led by an RD, Jae Berman, about the importance of breakfast. When I first heard we were talking about “the importance of breakfast” I thought it might be a “duh” type of moment (“breakfast is good for you!”) but it was way more than that! Jae was really informative and engaging and made me really want to continue to learn more about nutrition, and, more importantly, what kind of nutrition works best for ME. I really need to reconsider reintroducing animal protein again, but that’s another story for another blog.
It was a great morning at Attune and well worth getting up at 6:30AM on a Saturday for. And check out the swag!
After breakfast, we headed out on an adventure to the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market. I just posted about this market recently because I was kind of just there, but it’s great every single time. And even better with bloggers because I don’t feel as lame taking photos of everything on my iPhone!
I walked away with a bag of blue potatoes (random purchase) and, of course, a vegan donut from Pepples. Requirement.
I had a great time today and am looking forward to getting to know some new people and that I keep meeting through blogging, which is just the coolest. It makes me really excited for the Bay Area Blogger Meetup I’m trying to put together for October 8th, too!
The rest of the day was an exhausting shopping spree that merits a whole post in itself.
Gotta get ready for a run in Half Moon Bay tomorrow… goodnight everyone!
What’s your go-to breakfast food?
