Grain-free chai-spiced cookies made with nut butter, coconut flour, and coconut sugar. Infused with chai spices using a convenient chai concentrate!
Tonight I went to a young professionals networking event with a friend.
I wore my best pair of dark denim for the occasion and brought out a classic button up shirt that emerged from my closet since my corporate office-dwelling days.
Somehow my name tag got stuck in my hair (I couldn’t make this up if I tried!), which made for the perfect icebreaker for introductions.
“Hi, um, you have a name tag stuck in your hair,” this one guy said and I definitely thought he was kidding, HA HA, until I reached behind my head and tore the words “Lauren, Flora & Vino, LLC” from strands of blonde hair.
Who needs the business cards tucked in my back pocket with publicity like that?
Unfortunately, I don’t have any good brands or eats to report back with, but it was nice to connect with local peers, ya know?
It was also nice to practice my “pitch” to strangers outside of my field who have no idea that this industry exists.
I answered the dreaded question, “So, what do you do?” in different ways, feeling out which one sounded the most me.
Usually, I say I’m a food photographer, recipe developer, and content creator of a plant-based website.
Sometimes I just say I’m in social media.
Also true: Coconut Flour Chai Cookies would make networking and socializing a lot easier.
These vegan, gluten, and grain-free cookies are made with coconut flour, chai concentrate, and almond butter!
