Hello everyone – from Santa Monica, CA.
I’m here visiting my friend Julia after the Women Building Calfiornia Conference in downtown LA this weekend. Met SO MANY wonderful working women from all over the U.S. Women came from all over the West Coast, plus Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina (me!), and even a gal from Australia!!
Next conference is in Oakland next year – I’m going again! It’s SO WONDERFUL meeting real working women… I wish I could have had a support group like this when I first got into the trades… but that was back in 1976 and I’m STILL the only woman ironworker out of North Dakota – after 30+ years!!
The food this weekend was really GREAT – with a big emphasis on fruits and healthy eating… CA seem so far ahead of the rest of the country in healthy eating habits… altho I DO notice a LOT more restaurants in NC and other places I’ve visited in past several years ARE serving better choices on their menues… especially salads and more raw or lightly steamed foods!
Heading home on Friday, after several days in Sacramento region visiting more friends I haven’t seen in about 12 years!
Send your recipes for healthy food choices and anything you’d like to see on this website!!
Photos from this weekend will be on my Facebook page soon!
