Check out the difference between the food served at three different conferences. I’ve been to many conferences: usually the food can be summed up as “meh”. Over-cooked chicken, some wilted and struggling salad, and of course an enormous mess of starch of some kind usually with a white sauce glooped on it. Not terrible, but not terribly good for you either.
But the lunch bags at the diabetes conference… chips? Twix? Are you kidding me?!? The banana is arguable as well but let’s skip that for a moment to shudder at the idea that you are at a diabetes conference and being fed chips and candy. Who thinks like that?
