It's "berry" official!

Some of you may remember that I once traveled to Monterey, California for the California Strawberry Commission to learn everything about these delicious berries. It was an amazing experience to visit several strawberry fields where I had the pleasure in meeting the generation of growers and learning their history. I toured the actual route the way berries are transported to chillers, to groceries, and then to our tables. Even learned about all the necessary nutrition strawberries provide us. When I got back to Chicago I gathered with my friends to tell tales of that incredible trip and of course a reason to feast on what else, strawberries! Strawberries were served in form of cocktails, appetizers, main dishes, and of course desserts were devoured.

Well, this time I'm given the opportunity to paint the town red once again! I just signed the dotted lines of a Spokesperson Contract for the California Strawberry Commission! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

First part of the job is to join in on a video series with Nutritional Housecall's Dave Grotto, author of 101 Foods That Could Save Your Life101 Optimal Life Foods, and his latest The Best Things You Can Eat. We're set to go on taping at the end of this month and so I'll be back talking about that experience here.

Let's hope I remember all my lines because that would be berry berry good! Hihi. Sorry, I couldn't help myself.
