Thank you to all who provided feedback and questions for the Hungry Girl interview. I think it went well, and I will hopefully be getting the video sometime today to share with you. Some of you brought up some interesting points in the comments on my last post. I kept my interview with Lisa on friendly terms, but I hope that some of the questions address your concerns.
I thought I would switch things up today with a breakfast post! It’s been a while, am I right?
I’ve had some pretty rushed mornings lately, so this quick breakfast has pretty much been the standard: 1.5 servings each of Kashi Go Lean and Nature’s Path Puffs, 1.5 tbsp. ground flax and 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk. The extra half serving of each cereal really is key – otherwise, I end up with a growling stomach an hour later.
I also had a mug of Coffee Cocoa in my favorite mug of all time. Yes, these mugs have finally made their way to my apartment in Chicago!
It was glorious. While I was eating, I found out that Stephenie Meyer is being accused of plagiarism. What?! This shocked me. What are your thoughts? I know that personally, as someone who hopes to become a published author someday, it would be my worst nightmare to be accused of something like this – talk about defamatory. I hope they can get to the bottom of it and that her name can be cleared!
Some of you may remember that I recently started a new internship at a PR firm. One of the accounts I’m working on is the National Pork Board, and last week I found out more details about one of their current contests. Since the people I work with know about my blog, I thought it would be fun to post more details about the contest in case anyone reading is interested!
All you have to do to enter is visit TheOtherWhiteMeat.com and submit a short video that shows your best tip(s) for grilling pork. Three finalists will be selected and flown out to NYC – a guest can come, too – to participate in a live finale grill-off this October in front of Food Network star Guy Fieri! Guy and a panel of judges will then pick the official “Pork Personality.”
All finalists will get free accommodations and airfare for two nights, and the big winner will also get $5,000, a new Char-Broil grill and grilling accessories.
