Guess Who Was On NPR Today?

by Erika Nicole Kendall

So….. guess who had the distinct honor of chatting on NPR on today’s episode of Tell Me More with Michel Martin?


Today, I was able to discuss with Michel and two other women – Arecely Panameno and Aviva Goldfarb, author of the book The Six O’Clock Scramble: Quick, Healthy, and Delicious Dinner Recipes for Busy Families – the topic of ways to make healthier eating easier and less expensive.

Since this is something that we here take seriously – y’all know how I am about my anti-processed foods spiel – I considered it a serious honor to be able to represent our little community here and share what we’ve all learned here with Michel’s audience.

Thank you, team BGG2WL, for spreading the word about what we’re promoting here and for allowing me to represent you! It is an honor I look forward to every day!

Yes!! I loved listening to you on NPR! I just finished listening to the segment on my phone and I was grinning from ear to ear hearing you speak. You’ve got a great voice – serious supastar in the making:) And of course, all that you said was intelligent, but that’s to be expected. I wish they would’ve given you guys more time to speak and answer questions though.

What are some more of your go-to meals besides stir fry?

LOL Awww, thank you!

It was hard to speak because I kept trying to figure out how to fully explain my food philosophy, because since I talk about wellness coupled with weight loss it makes me a little different from the other women participating (freezer burritos?)… and I HATE the “Uh, um” thing, so that’s something I want to spend some time working on. Otherwise, I’m happy with it.

That’s a good question… sounds like a blog post topic to me. 🙂

“Lesser people?”

Da hell? I’m a lesser people, too! ROFL

Going to listen while i’m on my lunch hour. Erika…i got it now, i got it now, idk if you got my email from the other day with my journal of my eating..sheesh…i had to stop at lunch because i was already at 1800 cal, so this morning i took out all the extra fats, and carbs/sugar. I did like you said and i measured out what a serving was…if it was a 1/4 of a cup…that’s what i did…and my GOD i took out the cheese…honey chile that cheese was killing me, i should have known because i was all just too happy to be eating it everyday..sometimes 3x’s a day.

It was a great interview! I listen to ‘Tell Me More’ everyday, and was pleasantly surprised to hear you… my favorite blogger on my favorite radio show, it was almost too good to be true!

I heard you on NPR today, and it made me want to check out your blog. I love what you had to say, you were witty and insigthful. I used to write a fitness blog with my bestie.. but then life took over and we lost focus. (sad face) You’ve not only inspired me to restart it, but you’ve got another fan in me and my girlies. Keep up the excellent work!
