Healthy Living Summit Pt. 3- The After Party

Last night, the remaining Summit attendees walked through the Public Garden en route to the Fisherman’s Feast Italian Food Festival.

We walked through Quincy Market

… and finally came upon the Festival in Boston’s North End.

There was a lot of great city culture going on, like a 1 LB-pasta eating contest. I didn’t think I was quite up for the task…

Most of the food was deep-fried, on a stick, or both. My best bet were the arancinis, or fried rice balls.

I bought the spinach & cheese flavor- Meghann thinks it was feta- and covered it in marinara sauce.

A few bites in, I knew it was going to leave me feeling sick, so I tried to just eat the inside rice part and left the fried shell.

A little later, we happened upon a Barefoot wine tasting!

Caitlin negotiated a special “blogette” deal: 3 tastes/ $3.

I really liked the Sauvignon Blanc

I spent two of my tickets on two little SB “shots.”

I also tried the Pinot Noir.

It was good, but I think I should have gone with the Zinfandel instead.

After the tasting, we took off in search of Mike’s Pastry, a famed Bostonian bakery.

The line was out the door… a sure way to know if a place is good!

Although Mike’s is known for their cannoli, I decided to go for gelato.

Almost every time I eat gelato I order hazelnut- or nocciola, in this case- and today was no different.

I convinced Tina, Heather, and Heather’s sister Nadine to jump on the nutty bandwagon, too… it was so creamy and delicious, I could have eaten two! We walked back to the hotel- 4 miles, there and back- and crashed into bed.

It was a great night, and the day is gearing up to be a good one.ย  I’m off to join the rest of the ladies for a park-side brunch. But first… Lindsay is giving away a copy of Fit Soul, Fit Body!ย  Check it out.

Have a great Sunday!
