Very Exciting

by Meghann on January 4, 2011

I told you today was going to be a good day! πŸ˜‰ And it keeps getting better.

But first, an announcement:

I’ve partnered with Attune Foods as a Brand Ambassador in 2011.

Basically this means I will be contributing to the Attune blog monthly, as well as participating in tweet-ups and giving the brand the praise it deserves. πŸ™‚ I’ve worked with Attune before through the Healthy Living Summit and am happy to report this is a brand I believe in.

Stay tuned as more details about this new partnership unfold!

In honor of the new partnership I dug into the last of my Attune Chocolate Granola Munch with some vanilla yogurt this afternoon.

The chocolate granola munch is like crack it’s so good (which is why i have been savoring every last bite). I purchased this bag months ago and have slowly been working my way through it (after my first round only lasted about 2 weeks πŸ˜‰ ). Maybe this new partnership means more chocolate granola munch? Heck, that’s worth the monthly blog post right there!

πŸ™‚

After work I had a meeting with another potential partnership that I’m REALLY excited about. (Check out IzonOrlando.com for a hint). The meeting went great and my head is buzzing with ideas.

Dinner tonight had a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

The new Rachael Ray mini casserole dishes I got for Christmas are the perfect size for mini crustless-quiches for one.

The mini quiche contains 2 eggs, mushrooms, blue cheese, and kale. Everything was whisked and baked at 375 for 10 minutes.

Extra large parsnips fires on the side.

I know, I know – I have the weirdest combinations, but – they work! πŸ™‚

Nom Nom Nom

Egg nog ice cream with chocolate for dessert!

Are you watching What Not To Wear tonight? Derek knows the girl being featured tonight from FSU! That connection means we’re practically famous, right? πŸ˜‰

Random question: If you were given your won TV show, what would you make it about?

Love those little casserole dishes and congrats on the partnership! I don’t have cable but it’s cool that you’re a degree away from the girl on the show!

I would make my own TV show about the daily life of a scientist!

Good question about the tv show. NO idea. πŸ™‚

I would make a television show that allowed me to go to concerts and give viewers a backstage pass. Only if it were concerts I want to go to though.

AHHH CONGRATS!!
I’ve never tried any of Attune’s products, but I’m dying to try their probiotic chocolate bars. Mmmmm.

10 erin January 4, 2011 at 9:40 pm

I would totally do a reality show on real housewives…and working moms…I live a crazy jam packed life with adorable kids and I don’t live in a huge house, shop all day, and drive a fancy car…knowing that people are going through the same struggles as you make stuggles feel easier…just my thought…

Congrats on your partnership and I can’t wait to hear what else you have in store!!

Cool opportunity!

I don’t think I dress TOO poorly, but I’d take some consultation from Stacy and Clinton!

I’d also love to be on “The Next Food Network Star.” Long-shot.

Ahh… well, that explains all the Attune chocolate on your blog lately. I wish they weren’t quite so gross-tasting! I was inspired to try them a couple of months ago and I just couldn’t get the chalky taste out of my mouth. πŸ™ Sorry, Attune.

32 Michelle @ Turning Over a New Leaf January 5, 2011 at 1:43 am

I watched that What Not to Wear episode! That’s cool that Derek knows her! I thought her transformation was incredible and inspiring! And I didn’t know about Stacy London’s scars. That makes me love her all the more. πŸ™‚

Hmmm… that Attune granola sounds amazzzz. Where do you get it? Whole Foods?

If I had my own show…. I’d probably make it about the life of a nurse in the E.R. where I work… Oh wait, they already have that show… called ‘BostonMed’!! Million dollar ideas just slipping thru my fingers…. πŸ˜‰

36 Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine January 5, 2011 at 7:21 am

The chocolate munch is serious crack. I had to duct tape the bag shut so that I’d think before opening it…because I ate like 3/4 in one sitting. SO GOOD!!

My own TV show would HAVE to be a cooking show! Something in the style of Nigella Lawson or Barefoot Contessa’s shows. They are so beautifully shot :).

39 Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday January 5, 2011 at 8:56 am

There’s something about What not to Wear that I really don’t like. I mean it’s great that they are helping people dress well to put their best foot forward in life and make a good impression but I find it really hard to believe that the people will truly maintain the wardrobe changes after the show is finished. Especially since they only get a few outfits out of it and not a huge wardrobe.

40 Kacy January 5, 2011 at 9:11 am

Congrats!!

I love that mini baking dish!!

41 Kara January 5, 2011 at 9:18 am

I DVRed the What Not to Wear episode, I would be so excited if someone I knew was on that show! Unless it was me, then I’d be embarrassed. I keep thinking someone is going to sign me up for that show since I wear the small 5 shirts all the time. In my defense, my baby spits up a LOT and I don’t want to wear any of my nice stuff until she grows out of that. I’m getting so lazy though with fashion πŸ™‚

Congrats! You should do a post about how to work with brands like this. I think this is something a lot of bloggers are interesting in learning how to do! πŸ™‚

44 Lacey @ Lake Life January 5, 2011 at 8:55 pm

Hm, that dipping combination actually sounds like it might be good…still weird, but good. Last night, I mixed soy sauce and A1 as a dipping sauce…not bad.
