The hardest part about growing a business and blog are the mean people you get along the way. A friend told me this is a good thing because if you're not making someone upset, you're not reaching and engaging people. While I suppose there is some truth to that, it's always heartbreaking for me when I get a nasty comment or message on social media.
It started last week when someone commented on my Facebook page on my low carb breakfast sandwich. The gentlemen went off on me for being a nutritionist promoting using a microwave to cook food. He demanded to know where I went to school and accused me of being in it only for money.
While I am running my coaching I would never promote something just for the sake of making two cents. Besides that, who really believes microwaves are dangerous anymore? There's no science to back that up. Needless to say, I blocked the man and reported him to FB for harassment.
It's really unfortunate that when you have good intentions and you put it out into the world that so many people want to crap all over you. I suppose that comes with the territory, but it's hard for me to not take that criticism to heart. Especially after everything I've been through and how much I want to help others.
I complained to the guy who now has upped his Facebook monitoring. He reads and likes every post on my Skinny Fitalicious Facebook page and tells me when someone is being obnoxious. It's one thing to give constructive feedback, but another to be rude and insulting.
If there's anything I've learned in this, it's that you can't please everyone which is why I stay true to myself and share things I love and enjoy in my life. If I were trying to please everyone, this would be a dessert blog with the most drool worthy, chocolatey recipes you've ever seen. Because truthfully, those are the sites that do really well.
So here I am posting a Low Sugar BBQ Salmon recipe. It may not be the sexiest recipe, but I've been eating it every week for months. Does that tell you something? That I'm always trying to make meal time easy while keeping it healthy and delicious!
Remember that low sugar BBQ sauce recipe? Well, I can't stop making it and putting it on all the things so I put it on salmon. I always have salmon in the freezer that I order from Sizzelfish because I eat it weekly and it's so much easier having it delivered right to my door. That way it's in the freezer for whenever I want to eat it.
Tossed my salmon on a sheet pan with fresh green beans then topped it with homemade low sugar BBQ sauce and thyme. Baked it 20 minutes and dinner was done. Don't believe how easy it is? Try it! Then make Crockpot BBQ chicken and use the leftovers to make BBQ chicken taco bowls.
I swear that homemade low sugar BBQ sauce is the recipe that keeps on giving!
P.S. After that incident happened, a woman commented that she loves how simple and easy my recipes are. I guess when something bad happens, good follows!
