(PRESS RELEASE)_Sept. 30, 2022 (Boca Raton, Fla.) — Former college football coach and ESPN consultant Marc Nudelberg hosted a launch party for his book, Family, Football & Failure: Leadership Principles from my Life as a Coach. The fabulous fete happened at a South Florida venue earlier this month. Dozens of guests attended as Nudelberg signed books and posed for photos with friends and family.
Equal parts memoir and manual, the book offers lessons on successful leadership and winning—on the field or in the boardroom.
Nudelberg knows outstanding leaders don’t happen by chance. That’s why he took coaching to a new arena. After 14 years coaching football for the University of Cincinnati, UF, Florida State University and others, Nudelberg now helps businesses and entrepreneurs reach their full potential at On the Ball Ventures. The organization offers tips and tools that improve sales leadership skills, customer experiences and more.

Anyone who follows the food scene knows vegan and the vegan lifestyle is big. And while we aren't practicing vegans, we do observe some dietary choices. For example, we don't eat beef, and haven't in many years.
Apparently one of the challenges of a diary-free diet is finding a suitable substitute for that most popular of cheeses: Parmesan, to which we are addicted. But for our vegan friends, that challenge was answered by Sister River Foods in Oregon in 2004. Founder Shannon Schnibbe created a new brand -- Parma! -- as an allergen-free parmesan alternative.
Described as "a plant-based umami superfood ... that are Paleo and Keto-friendly, a complete protein, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, non-GMO and Certified Kosher," it comes in four varieties: Original,
·Better Than Bacon Parma!, Chipotle Cayenne Parma! and Garlicky Green Parma!
This year has seen the debut of two new nut-free flavors: Garlic Basil and Jalapeno Bacon. We recently received samples of each to test drive in our kitchen. Always up for a new culinary adventure, we gave them both a spin.
First up was the Parma! Garlic Basil. We picked a vegetable we love to make with traditional parmesan, Brussels sprouts. Our preferred method is place them on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and then season, for which we used the Parma! Garlic Basil. The result was delicious. You get the taste of all three in one seasoning,
For the Parma! Jalapeno Bacon, we opted to try it on diced gold potatoes in our air fryer. Again, we used olive oil along with the seasoning. The result was two thumbs up. You got the taste of the parmesan and bacon, plus the jalapeno as well, but more subtle than overpowering.
Verdict? If you are looking for a plant-based seasoning that packs a lot of flavor, give these a spin in your kitchen.
Sold in 3.5 and 7-ounce bottles, Parma! can be savored on pasta, lightly steamed vegetables, pizza, salads, potatoes, avocado toast, popcorn and countless other hor d'oeuvres, main dishes and desserts. For suggested recipes, please visit <https://eatparma.com/cat egory/recipes/>.
