Last Friday, I had a bit of an unusual afternoon: our home was taken over by a film crew from CNN! They reached out to me last week about interviewing me for a TV story about healthy eating for new college grads just getting into the workforce. Not gonna lie – even though I’ve done video work before, I was still mildly terrified and considered ignoring the email, but decided not to be silly. Big girl pants (well, dress) = on!
The interview itself only took about 10 minutes, but setting up the shot meant they were there for about an hour! There’s so much that goes into filming a short interview.
Fun fact: back in college, I interned at a TV station and newspaper in rural Kentucky one summer because I wanted to do broadcast or print journalism. Since it was such a small station, I was able to actually get my feet wet vs. just getting people coffee all day. My main role at the TV station was filming “Man on the Street” interviews at a local Walmart – basically, asking locals what they thought about current hot topics and then putting the answers into a short round up interview clip that would be played during the local evening news. I met a lot of interesting characters, as you can imagine! I also got to do a couple feature stories, which were super cool. I wish that online video existed back then because I’d love to see those clips! I think I have them on VHS tape somewhere at home…
Anyway! Long story short: mad props for how much work goes into producing a short segment! Here I am with CNN’s Karin Caifa, who interviewed me.
The story was posted online earlier this week, if you’d like to check it out! Considering how nervous I was I think it went pretty well. They also interviewed fellow local food blogger Julie Wampler, who does some cooking in the story. Here’s the piece: CNN: New Grads – Eating Well on a Budget.
Since some of my favorite tips got cut out in the interest of time, I wanted to share some of my best tips for new college grads transitioning to office life – or really for anyone looking to stay healthy while working in an office. Even if you’ve been out of school and in the workforce for awhile now, I think you’ll still find these tips helpful!

What’s going on with the Trade Promotion Authority act (TPA) has lots of people worried. The bill, known as “fast track,” allows President Obama to make trade agreements that Congress can approve or reject, but cannot change.
The Senate passed the TPA. It now goes to the House.
USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack issued a congratulatory statement:
Today the Senate helped move America closer to securing responsible agreements that open markets for America’s farmers, ranchers and agribusiness and create jobs and improve wages across the country…Our farmers and ranchers face exorbitant tariffs and others barriers in important foreign markets, and if we do not act to maintain and gain market share in these places, our competitors will.
On the other hand, 2009 labor, environmental, family farm, consumer, faith, Internet freedom and other organizations oppose the TPA. They say “Fast Track is rigged to give special rights to corporations at the expense of workers and consumers.”
In an article in the American Journal of Public Health last year, tobacco researchers explained the problem:
International trade agreements relocate decisions about tobacco control policy to venues where there is little opportunity for public scrutiny, participation, and debate…“Fast-track authority,” in which Congress cedes ongoing oversight authority to the President, further distances the public from the debate.
I’ll be trying to keep up with what’s going on with trade agreements. Stay tuned.
Over the past months, I’ve stockpiled a list of tv shows and movies I wanted to watch in anticipation of the first few weeks after the baby is born. I’m normally don’t spend a ton of time on either, but usually one weekend evening is reserved for movie time with M. We grab all the pillows from the house, curl up on the couch, grab a few snacks, and settle in for a movie (this has become even more of an affair since we purchased and actually started using a 3D tv- I was skeptical at first but it’s actually really cool).
The snacks for the evening usually revolved around our favorite tapas meal of olives, cheeses, and fruits but I always make sure we have a big bowl of popcorn ready to go as well. Who ever paired popcorn and movies together was pretty much amazing (and it turns out, there’s quite a story behind popcorn/the movies).
At any rate, I usually mix it up every week. Some weeks I go spicy (like this adobo version) and some weeks I like a simple sweet version. This particular version is a slight riff on this honey-almond popcorn which is from The Fauxmartha. (and revisiting this post makes me want to go to the drive-in this summer!)
See the Recipe.

I’m excited to see my customer Hi-Rez getting some much-deserved attention. Rez recently teamed up with YouTube prankster Coby Persin, sauntered into a Times Square McDonald’s, and rapped a crazy-ass order to the befuddlement of the McDonald’s staff. The video was shared by Lil Wayne on Facebook and has close to five million views. Not […]
