I flew directly from Los Angeles to Minneapolis, MN last Wednesday as a guest of General Mills. I was invited by the cereal team to join 14 other bloggers (mostly mommy, some nutritionists, some comedy, others food). At first I said, of course! I’ve heard lovely things about MSP and was excited about the agenda. It was not a paid trip but my flight and hotel were covered. Then came the Kohl’s shoot and I almost said no. Luckily, I have great family and they told me to do both!
I eat the same things every week. Usually I alternate between almond butter toast, protein pancakes and yogurt/granola/fruit cups. In my new video today, I’m sharing my favorite protein pancake solution for a quick solution as well as two super quick breakfast recipes that my family loves. All you need to make these protein pancakes are mix and water! They taste delicious as is but you can always add chocolate chips or blueberries. I also enjoy making these in my mini waffle maker.
Well summer ended rather quickly and it’s not something I’m upset about. I have been struggling to keep up with work… but you all already knew thatHere have been my workouts lately:The selfie above is post one of the Peloton workouts! I love that I can get in a “class” on my own time and choose from 45 or 30 minutes long! They have 60 minute classes as well but not my thing right now as you know. We spent our last weekend of summer in the Cape and also in Boston.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
