Using 4 ingredients, including my own home made nut butter I came up with a healthy chocolate drink. This is perfect for me to enjoy after a training session at gym.
I wonder if brands realize how much it costs a blogger in ingredients? Recently I made a few recipes using a new (to me) product. I chose to send the company an email letting them know I had used their product. I did not ask anything of them in return. And they could use the recipe to promote their product if they chose to. Of course, in return I would be getting exposure. But this would in a sense cover the cost of the ingredients. The response was requesting that I name the brand specifically in my recipes. Given that I only do this for brands who have paid me, I didn’t think it was fair to do so for them. They could not understand that I was giving them recipes to use at no cost to them. In fact, they were the beneficiaries of my time and money.

There are a lot of us out there in the food blogging arena who do not blog full-time. We use our own salaries to pay for ingredients and recipes are developed in our spare time. This blog is partly a hobby and mostly a passion. I love cooking, and sharing recipes. I enjoy using new ingredients and testing them out. Sometimes with great success and other times not so much. Some recipes I create are intricate and involved. And others like this healthy chocolate drink are simple. Do you as a food blogger do so full-time, or part-time like me?
