Women, Shopping and Chocolate!

WOW! There’s a winning combination!

Last night I attended a We’re Open Women (WOW) Seminar in Harriston, Ontario. Egg Farmers of Ontario (EFO) was one of the presenting sponsors of the event so this was a work function for me. Since I’d already put in a long day by the time I made it to Harrison to set up a display for the 6:30 p.m. start, I was glad the real point of the event was a fun night for women.

Sprinkled between four interactive stage presentations given by a personal counselor, yoga instructor, spa company representative and me), there were displays to browse, products to buy, old friends to greet, new friends to meet….AND a chocolate fountain in which to dip fruit, cookies, cake and candies!

During my time on stage, I gave answers to a dozen questions I frequently get asked in my role as the Food and Nutrition Specialist for EFO. Questions such as:

  • What’s the difference between white and brown eggs?
  • How many eggs can I eat every week?
  • How long can you store hard-cooked eggs?
  • Why are hard-cooked eggs sometimes difficult to peel?

At the EFO display, I gave away free sets of microwave egg cookers, as well as egg recipes and nutrition information.

This was the second WOW seminar I attended this week. The first was on Monday in Arthur.

WOW Seminars are organized by Wise Moove Communications. The company also publishes Open Magazine.

There will be WOW Seminars in another 19 communities in Ontario throughout the rest of 2008. For a complete list of dates and communities, visit Wise Moove.

By the way, answers to the egg questions above and more, can be found at Egg Farmers of Ontario’s website.
