Atlanta was great. I met some interesting folks and found a Whole Foods Market, where I met some really friendly chefs. I was totally impressed with the kind people I met, who may as well have been from a model UN group - a taxi driver from Ethiopia, a pedicurist from Nigeria, a teacher from Japan, a fellow hotel-stayer from The Bronx. The conference was exciting and my blog presentation seemed to go off without a hitch. Whoppee.

But, it was great to fly into Brussels' airport on Monday morning, even if it meant facing up to a week of 'not my usually uber-organized self'' and loads of adminish-like meetings. We have had some yummy meals at home this week, and I took a can of Amy's organic Black Bean and Vegetable soup for lunch today (thank you Whole Foods!).

My favourite yummy so far this week was my broccoli, sesame oil and asparagus dinner on Monday night. Last night, after work I made a fattush with tofu...interesting, but not as tasty as the more traditional chickpeas.

Uhm, I hate non-uber-organized weeks! But you had a great times and visited a WF! Oh, I wish I could too...

Whole Foods is truly wonderful - from the large range of ready made food, to all the organic products.

I'm glad you had a great time, but we missed you! :)

Glad you enjoyed your trip to the states! I too hate coming back after a trip and not having time to get myself back in order.

That food looks fantastic!

I love Whole Foods too - the broccoli and asparagus look tasty!

I'm glad you made it back home again safely! I love to travel, but there is nothing like getting back to what is familiar.

I just love Whole Foods. Here, we have a Wild Oats that's transitioning into a Whole Foods, but it's not nearly as cool as the giant WF in Atlanta!
