4:00 – 5:00 p.m. Busy, Busy, Busy! How Do I Eat Fast, Without Eating Fast Food?
Hyatt Regency, Capitol 2, 4th Floor

Many people today are over-committed, overworked, stressed out and fighting just to stay above water. The thought of trying to eat healthy is left to what’s available in the drive-thru, which is usually not the healthiest of choices. This quick hour will offer some helpful hints to not only avoid the drive-thru, but make healthy a fast choice through planning and prepping, and healthful snacking options that are easy, affordable, and delicious. Diets do not work, lifestyle changes do work and create healthy living and energized bodies in the process.
