Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a blogger meet up with some LA area Healthy Living Bloggers. We met at Real Food Daily in Santa Monica, which I have been dying to try for months.
Real Food Daily features vegan and organic food. I have heard high praise from my friend Molly who claims it has the best fake bacon of all time. I tried it and it was pretty freaking good.
I was so excited a few weeks ago when Monica contacted me and asked it I wanted to attend a meet up. Of course I said yes.
Attendees included: Ameena @ Fancy That…Fancy This, Andy & Amanda @ Two Boos Who Eat, Brittany @ Pretty Fit, Pretty Healthy, Pretty Happy, Deb @ Smoothie Girl Eats Too, Erika @ Health and Happiness in LA, Jenn @ Girl Heroes, Kaitlin @ Kaitlin With Honey, Katie @ A Joy In Class. Everyone was super nice and you should check out their blogs! Add to your google reader!
It was so refreshing to be in a room with a group of people that are all bloggers! Everyone talked about food, photography, running, the blog community at large, and the Foodbuzz Fest (I wish I was going so bad!). The healthy living community is so supportive. I’m glad I get to be apart of it.
For lunch I made sure I got something with fake bacon. I settled on the club sandwich:
This sandwich was bar none the best vegan food I have ever had. All the ingredients were very fresh and Molly was right, amazing fake bacon. This sandwich didn’t stand a chance.
After lunch we headed outside for more photos.
Benefit of hanging out with bloggers? I’m not the only one taking a copious number of pictures.
This is Amanda
and I. We are talking about running a half marathon
together. I hope it works out because they are both awesome! It was a total trip to meet both of them because I love their blogs and communicate with them all the time over Twitter.
Overall, the blogger meet up was a huge success! Thanks again to Monica
for organizing it. We should do it again soon!
**Special thanks to Amanda and Andy for letting me use some of your pics**
I wish you were going to Foodbuzz too but we’ll definitely have to get together again soon!
And I am so pumped for the half-marathon. Scared about training though!
You are going to do awesome at training! I just know it!
Woo! It was so great to actually meet you… you know, in person! Can’t wait for next time. 🙂
Great to meet you at RFD- I also LOVED the fake bacon! I’m sure that you kids can run that half if you want to! 🙂
Looking forward to the next meetup.
It was great meeting you on Saturday! And your sandwich looked awesome.
