I had a lot of trouble sleeping Wednesday night….I was nervous to speak about my blog to a group of dietitians yesterday. I was glad to hear the group would only be about 20…but I was still incredibly nervous.
Nicole, you used to lecture to college students for hours on end, multiple times a week…you got this.
It was fine, the presentation went great. As it ends up, I am the expert on the topic of MY blog (duh).
People asked great questions and I even got to meet Emilie, a reader of my blog — so neat! Hi Emilie!
When I was done with my presentation, I asked if anyone was considering starting a blog and I was THRILLED to see several hands go up. Some women even stayed afterwards to run their ideas past me and swap contact information for future endeavors, blogging and nutrition-related.
Networking is powerful stuff and I am always up for widening my pool of colleagues within the field.
During my presentation, I had one particular slide that received quite a few head nods of approval and agreement. The head nodding was most noticeable when I mentioned my “Money Matters” series and the fact that one of the goals I have for my blog is to help people understand that eating well doesn’t have to be expensive.
This recipe is kind on the pocket book and perfectly timed after yesterday. It doesn’t get more economical (or healthy!) than this meal!
