Autumn Taste & Learn Event

in #vegan2 years ago (edited)

Hey guys! I hope everyone is doing well! I’ve been taking a wee little bit of a Steem break to try to get some things accomplished out here in the real world. If you all weren’t so awesome I might have an easier time finding a balance between my online and offline time, but I had to forcibly yank myself away from the screen to try to push the reset button. In case you missed the announcement post, I have sadly taken a step back from my beloved #fruitsandveggiesmonday. Though I am sure my dear friend @lenasveganliving will keep the tradition alive and well! You know I won’t be able to resist from checking in on all the delicious recipes and foods for too long… ;)

I’m still working on trying to develop a more set schedule for myself on how much time I can really afford to spend on here, but luckily because of @steempress I could kill two birds with one stone today and share my latest nutrition event on my site as well as take a quick moment to check in with you all. Sometimes you have to take a step back to be able to move forward, so I have full confidence I will find some renewed motivation to accomplish all of the goals I have in the many facets of my life that I am passionate about. Until then, here’s a peak at what I’m working on out here in the real world and I hope to check back in with you soon!

With cooler weather finally upon us here in Atlanta, I'm hosting my latest seasonal nutrition event at Excellence in Exercise! This time of year is so much fun to get in the kitchen and work with all of the delicious root vegetables and create warming, healthy meals. I can't wait to share some of my favorites with everyone, as well as help spark the motivation to not let the upcoming holidays derail your health and fitness efforts!

Come join Katie (aka Plants to Planks) for a taste of what the Autumn season has to offer. She’ll share with you three different plant-based dishes highlighting some of the current seasonal fruits and vegetables that you can find at the local farmers market and stores. In addition, this event we will also focus much of the conversation on healthy holiday habits. With the holiday season fast approaching, now is the time to make sure those good habits are in place and have a plan to keep from overindulging too much at the plethora of events and parties ahead. Learn some plant-based tips and tricks to stay on track while still enjoying the season ahead!

  • Taste 3 different plant-based dishes

    • Apple & Kohlrabi Salad

    • Sweet Potato Gratin

    • Squash & Cauliflower Soup

I approve of this plant-based posts.

Nice to take a little time off now and again . But good to see your latest post too.

Thank you! Yes, I think we can all use a little digital detox on occasion. I can tell it is definitely helping me get some other things done and reset my brain a bit. :)

I wish I could get down to Atlanta to support you! Hope it's a glorious success!

Thanks so much! The last two have been a lot of fun, so I'm hoping for another great group for this one! I'll definitely do what I did last time and post a recap after for everyone who isn't local or couldn't make it. :)

Happy to see you were able to find time for Steemit Katie! That's awesome! Good job making me salivating, lol..........and for that I must give you some Wonkies 😍

Aww, thanks Lena! You may recognize the sweet potato dish--I earned Barbara's Blue Turkey with that one 2 years ago!! It is so good I make it a few times every fall. :) Maybe I'll be able to get a few more good shots this time around!

My pleasure Katie, I was so happy to see your post. And the sweet potato is the one? Oh my gosh! I do remember when you won, but I forgot the dish. But good to know, they look super appetizing 😍

Some good memories for sure! Please let me know who got second place this week for the contest as I would love to continue to sponsor the shares for that, and also the third so the VOS page can support. :)

We sure do have lots of memories 😊
I just sent you an email.


Amazing! Let peace and gratitude arise from within! Let love explore every way and then win!

I hope to share lots of love through my cooking for this one. :)

Hope your tantalizing, tasty dish night is a huge success for you!

Dont know why koolrabi and apple taste great together but it truly is taste but spoiling! Good luck with the event, sure everybody will love it!

Thank you! I only recently jumped on the kohlrabi bandwagon, but I love it now. It's such a delicious and versatile veggie. :)

We all need to step back sometime just to know where we are. Recognizing that we need to pay attention to it is half the battle! Good luck with the event!

Absolutely. A little distance can make many things clear. :)
