Trail Mix: Obama offers healthy food option at his rally

My dear friend Kate and I waited two and a half hours to see Barack Obama give a well-worth-the-wait 30-minute speech last night and we got hungry! So hungry that I was prepared to eat the boxed pizzas that I saw people bringing back to their seats. To my surprise, when I arrived in the lobby, I spotted a table with a woman selling homemade trail mix, pistachios, yogurt covered pretzels and other healthy options. She had clearly packaged these herself because they were all in plastic baggies. I don't think that I have ever been to an event with six thousand people where I could find a healthy snack to tie me over. I bought a bag of trail mix and a water and headed back to my seat.

Hooray! to Obama for offering us change away from unhealthy vendor food.
