Hello! I hope your week started out great. Did you like my first post on Dr. Fuhrman’s Getaway? I am in the midst of the first full day here, it is AMAZING!!! I am so inspired and hopeful and excited about everything I’m learning here and being surrounded by people who are at every stage of change, from beginners to veterans.
Guess who I met (again) at the welcome reception last night? That’s right! Here’s my proof:
There was a reception before dinner with lots of healthy appetizers like these fruit kebobs:
There was also a table with cut-up vegetables and some prepared items too like a black bean mixture served on an endive leaf and a mushroom pate served on a cucumber slice (sorry, no pictures of those):
Dinner was full of healthy options from an amazing salad bar to hot items like quinoa loaf and cauliflower risotto:
I admittedly filled my plate with too much food; I guess I got a little excited (there is salad under all of that food, I promise):
Dessert was fantastic with fruit options and a blueberry apple pie thingy with macadamia cream topping:
It’s difficult to not overeat, even though the food is prepared with no salt or oils according to Dr. Fuhrman’s guidelines. I want to taste everything and figure out how I can re-create it at home with my own twist.
I met some great people on the first day of the Getaway, including Laura from Australia and Alex from Quebec:
Every person who’ve I met has an interesting story and I’ve been pulling myself out of my shell and trying to meet as many people as possible. Last night ended with some great conversation around the fire pit and then started today with a 6 a.m. wake-up call (that’s 3 a.m. California time!) for a power walk with Dr. Fuhrman. I’ll be back tomorrow with all of the photos and updates from the first full day of the Getaway.
