Happy Monday Friends!
What a great long weekend I had!
Friday I attended the TechMunch Food Blogger Conference at the Monday Night Brewing Company in Atlanta. There were 7 sessions throughout the day with breaks in between, lunch catered by Metro Fresh and a Beer Tasting at the end. The sessions were How to Create & Leverage Your Personal Brand, How the Pros Review, How to Create & Implement an Editorial Calendar, How to Leverage Social Media, Your Food Photography Questions Answered and How to Monetize Your Content.
I was introduced to the company Beyond Meat. They have products that replicate chicken and beef but are made out of 100% plant protein. At first I was skeptical but then when Jason (the Digital Marketing Manager) explained they were not made with soy I was down to try some. It was actually REALLY good. I could not believe that mock chicken salad was not real chicken!
I also finally got to meet Laura who blogs over at Sprint 2 the Table. I’ve been following her blog for awhile and we’re both FitFluential ambassadors so it was great to finally meet in person!
Lunch was catered by Metro Fresh and included a delicious spread of fresh sandwiches (vegetarian, turkey or ham) and an array of mixed salads! I tried a little of everything…of course.
Lunch was followed by red velvet cupcakes from Sprinkles Cupcakes of Atlanta. How cute are they?! They were also pretty darn delicious.
After more afternoon sessions we ended with a beer tasting of the fresh craft brews from Monday Night Brewing. Definitely a brewery I’ll have to visit again!
The rest of my weekend was filled with a trip to the fall farmers market, demoing B’s bathroom as we start his bathroom renovation project(!!) and lots of delicious fall cooking!
Now it’s time to start another work week with a full belly, new ideas floating around my mind and a happy heart!
Have a great Monday!!
