I have so many thoughts going through my head as I’m finally sitting down to blog this week. First, I apologize for not blogging sooner. Monday was spent prepping for my guest teaching gig on Tuesday. Tuesday, I was honored to guest teach at my daughter’s high school. I taught 7 culinary classes (164 kids) and spoke about healthy eating, carbs, Thanksgiving, being a vegetarian and pretty much anything food related. My takeaway is that teachers and aides are grossly underpaid (I already knew this but standing in their shoes confirmed this for me). The kids ranged in age from freshman to seniors. Encompassed all socio-economic groups. Athletes to non-athletes. It was as much a learning experience for me as it was, hopefully, for them. My last class, I was blessed to teach my favorite freshman – my daughter. It was, without a doubt, the highlight of my day seeing her. My heart fills with pride every time I lay eyes on this girl who is morphing into an amazing adult. But enough on that… here is a pic from yesterday. Sorry to my daughter who was eating/carb loading before her two hour swim practice right after class but mama want a shot to remember the day!
