so i got a chance to do my first live cooking demo this past weekend at a health fair held at the Destiny Christian Center in LaPlace, Louisiana :shock: :)
the day before though, Chiso and i had the pleasure of meeting a fit foodie le supporter in HEB while i was picking up a few last-minute things for our road trip. i so thought i was being reprimanded for going back to the grape sample bowl too many times, but nope, it was Tiara, a fit mom of two doing some shopping with her mom and just introducing herself! she asked about getting started with grocery shopping and well, i will cover ALL that and more in my (hopefully) next post. nice meeting you lady.
k, back to the trip.
we hit the road at 3 somethin’ AM, homemade egg white & bacon bowls to-go (2 slices sara lee 45 cals & delightful bread for me, 1 whole wheat tortilla for him) in tow.
oh what fuuuuuun it is to ride with my hub-by to LA. HEY!
by the grace of God we made it right on time,
and started setting up immediately. i made the Mo-Rockin’ Chicken and Cold Cucumber & Tomato salad w/ Dill from my ebook, and also whipped up some of my oatmeal banana pancakes.
i spoke to the attendees about healthier ingredients (swaps) when cooking at home, shared a starter grocery list, grocery shopping tips, and concluded with a little Q & A.
then i added Sonny to the presentation so he could give everyone the run down on our personalized health and fitness company, 6 Pack USA!
Food Network ain’t ready for me!!!!!! i ain’t read for them either though :lol: . those cooking show hosts make it look CRAZY easy. cooking & talking (and making sense) in front of people or a camera is no easy task, but it will just take practice, practice, and mo’ practice for me.
grateful for this fun learning experience. friends and family keep asking me if i was nervous up there- heck yeah. however,
so don’t let fear block your blessings. if God brings you to it, HE’LL TAKE YOU THROUGH IT.
my line sister Santrice so kindly had my e-book printed and binded in color just for my trip and i thank her SINCERELY!!!! i brought them with me to be auctioned off during the raffles at the health fair, and here i am with Kimber, a sweet, helpful woman who gave me SO much great feedback on how to improve and grow after my presentation. she blessed me greatly and whaddaya know, her name was pulled to win my e-book!
i’d like to give BIG thanks to my girl Dami for hooking me up with the ladies over the Destiny Christian Center Health Fair, Kassidy and Brittany, in the first place! they both did a fantastic job of catering to the vendors and putting on a successful community event.
thanks for reading!
