Hey guys! Hope you all had a fabulous rosé-fueled Fourth of July I’m back from my annual trip to the Cape and ready to get down to some serious business. In my last post, I mentioned I would have some news soon, and well – it’s time to share!
On Friday, July 29th, I will be leading a workshop titled “Healthy Eating for a Sustainable You” as part of the annual Civic Art Lab event on the Lower East Side. Hosted by GreenspaceNYC, it’s a non-profit collaborative that “develops and curates free educational programming, hands-on workshops, and public design projects that encourage dialogue, enliven public spaces, and promote the future of more equitable and sustainable cities.” The workshop will focus on the obstacles we often face when selecting food as modern eaters. I will then discuss how to improve your life by taking control of your eating habits and returning to home cooking as your primary source of food. I’ll also share tips for selecting ingredients and planning your meals, as well as inspiration to live a healthier life.
I’m so excited to take the mission of this blog out of the web and into a real life experience for the very first time. The event is totally free but you have to RSVP as space is limited. I hope you can make it!
Next, I’m thrilled to announce that Natural Gourmet Institute (aka, the site of my day job) is offering a Food Blogging Certificate Program this September. The program is an evolution of the Food Media course that I completed over a year ago (which had a tremendous impact on my life and career). Over five in-class sessions, you will learn how to find your blogging voice, create and manage content, develop your food photography skills, grow a community, and transition into a full-time blogging career. The program will be taught by Phoebe Lapine, creator of one of my favorite blogs, Feed Me Phoebe.
Yours truly helped to develop the program concept – the food photography session, in particular; I’ll also be instrumental in delivering this session to the class. So whether you dream of launching a food blog, or want to turn your existing site into a career, this program is sure to help you take your next steps. The program is certainly a financial investment, so be sure to use code TNBxNGI15 at checkout for 15% off the course fee.
