Conference Day 1 – Typical Breakfast

image image

Good morning from Day 1 of the Metabolic & Endocrine Disease Summit in hot & sunny Las Vegas! I will be posting some of the meals offered to attendees, along with what I eat/drink instead of the meals.

This morning is typical continental-style fare with sweetened fruited yogurts, cold cereals, fat-free milk, muffins, fruit, chocolate quick bread.  Everything is low fat, of course.

I skipped all that and instead had a coffee from Starbucks with butter & heavy cream added. They look at ya a little funny when you order it that way but it really is delicious. I have macadamia nuts and a Quest bar in my bag but doubt I’ll get hungry before lunch.

Mostly I am dehydrated from the flight yesterday…I didn’t drink nearly enough in effort to avoid the lavatory. Got to Vegas in time for a short stroll and something to eat. Hubby & I split a grass- fed cheeseburger (no bun for me) and I had a beautiful side salad with ranch dressing. Just enough food since I don’t like a big meal in the evenings most of the time.  I’ll be drinking loads of water today and plan to get a green tea from Starbucks later.  My daughter hooked me on The green tea from Starbucks…refreshing!

What are your suggestions for being away from home and trying to avoid excess carbs?
