This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend FNCE (Food and Nutrition Conference & Expo) in Chicago for their 100th Anniversary! I learned so much and met so many people who share my passion for food and nutrition. I came back with all sorts of fun new products to try, so be on the lookout for posts about those. Anyone who's ever been to FNCE will understand just how much you get to sample. I left room in my suitcase knowing I would be coming back with a lot.
I attended sessions on Alzheimer's, Intermittent Fasting Effects on Cardiometabolic Disease and Cancer, PCOS, and Food as Medicine in Malnutrition and Eating Disorders. I also attended a job fair to learn about different career paths... and then there was the Expo. There was so much food and so many samples to try - I literally ate all day long (but we walked a lot too, so it balanced out).
Thankfully, my fellow interns and I had some time to explore the city a little too! We had a rough start with our airbnb - but we ended up staying right in the middle of the theater district which was so fun! And of course we had to try the deep dish pizza at Giordano's - DELISH!
