EBF on CBS6 Making Mason Jar Salads!

If you follow along on Instagram you probably already saw the sneak peek I posted, but I’m so excited to share that I recently had the opportunity to make one of my all-time favorite recipes, Black Bean Fiesta Mason Jar Salads, on CBS6 Virginia This Morning! The episode aired this week and I’m really excited to finally be able to share some behind-the-scenes photos and the full segments with you.

Spoiler alert: everything didn’t go perfectly! I actually forgot a really important ingredient for the cilantro lime dressing (olive oil, of all things) — but it was so much fun!

I loved being able to share this recipe with my local community and get more practice being in front of a camera. And who knows, perhaps this episode inspired a few people to hop on board the #saladeveryday train. I certainly hope so! If you haven’t tried my black bean fiesta mason jar salads yet, take this as a sign and try the recipe this week!

Getting ready to go live!

I’m pretty sure this is the moment I told Cheryl Miller that she could keep the mason jar salad and eat it for lunch!

In addition to the mason jar salad segment, the CBS6 team asked me to do a fitness segment and for this one I’m shared my favorite plank variations to combat love handles. Once the salads were made, I changed into workout gear and led Jessica Noll through a few moves!

Jessica tried out the side plank with a twist and totally rocked it!

And I showed simple ways to modify a side plank to make it a bit easier for beginners.

      So exciting! I met both of those ladies when I was on VA This Morning with Swanson. Doing a plank on TV is very brave!!

      What a great espisode. Cheryl Miller was really a good person to have for something like that. She was prepared and totally got it which helped you really shine.

        I totally agree. She’s been doing this for over 10 years so she’s a natural. I need to take some pointers from her as I start doing more vids for my YouTube channel.

      Looks like a nice website but I won’t return. The ads are HORRIFIC and interrupt the slightest scrolling. Best wishes for your site.
