when i was a student I won a grant to go to the International Congress of dietetics in Edinburgh way back in 1999!, It was cool, I even got a lift back with my college professors weird!, they always have meetings in cool places. Japan would have been nice!

I have thought of going back to school to become an RD. I have chickened out so far! Maybe someday!

Thanks for stopping by today! You would be amazed at just how much different these subs taste compared to Subway subs. I like the Manhattan or the Bronx usually. I hope you get a chance to try one sometime!

Have a great day!
