Where I’ll be at #HLS13

The Healthy Living Summit is almost here! You can probably guess that I’m excited just based on the amount of times I’ve talked about it. 🙂

There are so many fun activities throughout the weekend and I can’t wait to meet tons of new people who share my passion! I’ll be arriving in Minneapolis laaaaate on Thursday night (Friday morning, technically) and will head straight to the hotel and try to get some sleep (though I’ll probably be too excited).

Friday, September 13:

8:45-11:45 –  Wild Harvest Behind-the-Scenes Tour:

  • Tour the test kitchens and sensory lab to see how new products are developed
  • Participate in an actual sensory test focus group to determine what makes it to store shelves
  • Learn how new recipes are created using wild harvest products
  • Hear how we work with local growers and partners to ensure we always exceed quality and organic standards
  • Discuss the importance of nutrition as part of a healthy lifestyle and the benefits of incorporating organic foods into your diet
  • Sample products and recipes featuring the wild harvest brand

Noon-1 p.m. –  Early Registration: It’s officially the beginning of the summit! Oh, and running back up to my hotel room to finally meet Casey!
