You guys… I made my television debut yesterday!! I was asked by Qrunch Foods to do a segment about Non-GMO month on ABC 8 Good Morning Richmond. I’ve never done any tv work before so accepting the spot was definitely taking me out of my comfort zone, but I said yes. I kept thinking of the “do something every day that scares you” quote and knew that I’d be nervous but that it was an awesome opportunity and one I couldn’t turn down.
On Friday I went shopping for a few of my favorite Non-GMO verified products and spent the remainder of the day practicing. I probably looked like a crazy woman talking to myself because I was definitely rehearsing the entire time I was shopping. Oh well, I’m sure the Whole Foods employees are used to people grumbling about GMOs under their breath. 😉
Friday night I went to bed early so I’d be well rested and arrived at the studio at 7:30AM for the 8:00AM show. Darrielle Snipes greeted me with a smile and showed me where to set up. About 45 minutes later we were live. I felt my nerves kick in but it actually wasn’t as intimating as I thought it would be because there wasn’t a camera-person filming or anything — just a teleprompter and a few screens. Seeing an actual camera probably would have made me more nervous. Darrielle made it feel like we were having a regular conversation and I felt really comfortable sharing the recipes. Overall, the segment went really well — especially considering it was my first time. If you’re interested in seeing the segment, it’s posted on the WRIC website.
I also wanted to share the baked avocado egg recipe here because it’s a new favorite of mine. <— Y’all know I’m all about the healthy fats!!
Loaded with protein, healthy fat and loads of fiber, this quick and easy recipe is perfect for breakfast or snacking.
I know warm avocado might seem kind of strange but I’ve been hooked on it since we started grilling avocados last summer. Heating the avocado makes it even more creamy!
I like the baked avocado eggs warm but I also like them cold. A lot of the time I’ll make four at one time so I can refrigerate a few for a quick and portable breakfast or a fast post-workout snack. Easy peasy and only 2 ingredients. I top mine with salt, pepper and a little hot sauce!Print
