Crock-Pots have earned a reputation as the lazy cook’s best friend, but they can also be an athlete’s secret weapon. Just ask Lentine Alexis, a classically trained chef and former triathlete whose high-quality performance food can be prepared in a slow cooker. Based in Boulder, Colorado, Alexis also works as a culinary consultant for brands like Rapha and Skratch Labs, so she’s intimately familiar with endurance fuel. Her go-to dish—a savory porridge—is the ultimate low-maintenance meal.
Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving—one of the best players on one of the NBA’s best teams—recently made the switch to a vegan diet. So did Portland Trailblazers all-star point guard Damian Lillard and other NBA notables Jahlil Okafor and Al Jefferson. And that’s just in the NBA. Climber Steph Davis, ultrarunners Scott Jurek and Rich Roll, snowboarder Hannah Teter, and former track and field star Carl Lewis have all gone totally plant-powered for at least some period of time during their career.
Keeping tabs on your hunger is key to successful training. If you’re pushing hard, you’re burning through more calories than usual, and you need to pay close attention to how much food you’re using to fuel those efforts to avoid an energy deficit. Similarly, if you’re toning down your training for whatever reason or trying to cut a few pounds to hit racing weight, you have to think about eating less without feeling like your energy is depleted.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
