“Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.”

It’s no secret that I’m passionate about art. Another passion of mine is sharing this love of art with others!
Earlier this summer, I had very talented and enthusiastic young artists in Artist Studio for one week and Painting Studio for one week at COCA (Center of Creative Arts) . Before we even met, I knew they shared this same passion because they’d signed up to make art with me for one week from 9am to 4pm everyday!

We explored a variety of media and techniqeus, set up a still-life together, created landscapes and portraits, worked with abstraction, from imagination, and learned about inspiring artists from art history! Students ranged in age from 8-18. And we celebrated each week of making art with Art Show culminations!

So grateful I got to work with these amazing young artists!

Have a wonderful week!

Tracks social media monitoring

December 23, 2014 03:33 am

Radian6′s Social Media Monitoring Platform Now Tracks Google Buzz

Please note: we are currently updating this post to provide you the latest Salesforce Marketing Cloud capabilities (May 2013)

Less than a week ago Google launched Google Buzz. We have been tracking its adoption this past week, and we believe it has already become an important platform for brands to use to listen and engage with their constituency.

Just two days after the launch, Google reported on their blog that there were over nine million buzz updates posted from mobile devices alone – that’s a rate of 200 mobile posts per minute. In addition, Google reported, “…tens of millions of people have checked Buzz out”. The launch has not been without criticism, but Google is responding rapidly to feedback and introducing changes to address user concerns.

One of the notable characteristics of Google Buzz is the high level of engagement it inspires in users. For example, Mashable’s blog post on the Windows Phone 7 launch received more than twice the engagement on its Buzz profile as it did on the main Mashable site, garnering 64 comments on Buzz compared with the original post’s 27 comments.

While Google Buzz allows users to push content from other sources connected to their Google Profile (i.e. tweets, blog posts from Google Reader, etc.), it also allows them to generate unique updates both from the web and mobile Buzz applications. This means, in order for our customers to continue receiving a complete view of the discussions about their brands, our social media coverage needed to quickly expand to include the Google Buzz platform. We are proud to say that, as of today, Radian6 monitors Google Buzz.

Public content on Google Buzz is flowing into the Radian6 system as we speak. To avoid polluting content in the system with duplicates automatically shared from other social networks, we are indexing only original content posted on Buzz either from the mobile or web interfaces. Re-posted items from Twitter or blogs will not be indexed since our platform already captures this content from the original sources. In the Radian6 platform, Buzz updates are classified as blogs since they resemble this media type the most with their support of long-form commentary and threaded comments. And, if Google Buzz continues to grow in popularity, we may assign it a media type of its own.

We now cover approximately 4.5 million Google profiles and our system is automatically and rapidly building on this number, prioritizing the most active profiles. As Radian6 users already know, we index comments from blogs, videos, forums, pictures, and online mainstream news, and we will be looking to extend this coverage to include Buzz comments as well in the coming weeks.

I ve explained before that muesli is my favorite alternative to traditional breakfast cereal. It s minimally processed, has no added sugar and when made properly is quite tasty. The only problem is that these are features that food companies hate, because most people won t buy it. This makes it difficult to find muesli, particularly a high-quality version at a reasonable price.

Luckily it s stupid easy to make your own muesli. Doing it yourself is also a lot cheaper and lets you customize your mix to your preferences. All you need is some rolled grains (oats or a mixed cereal like I use here) and an assortment of nuts and dried fruits of your choosing you don t need a real recipe.

In the mix above I chose a 5 grain cereal that I found at my local market. I picked up a simple nut mix of roasted and lightly salted nuts, some extra hazelnuts (because I love them), some golden raisins and some dried currants. It turned out AWESOME, way better than the expensive stuff I normally buy.

I used to always eat my muesli mixed with a little plain yogurt. but these days I ve preferred to just pour a little in a bowl, add some water and microwave it for 2 minutes. It comes out like the tastiest oatmeal you ve ever had. I sprinkle a little cinnamon on top, and maybe add a splash of almond milk and it is amazing. If you re still acclimating to the lack of sugar in muesli, you can try stirring in a spoonful of peanut butter, low sugar jam or a drizzle of honey.

Lastly, I love these POP containers by OXO. They come in a bunch of different sizes and shapes, and do a great job of keeping foods fresh. I use them to store all my beans, lentils, grains, dried chilies and other pantry items.

54 Responses to How To Make Your Own Muesli It s Stupid Easy

Love it! Makes me feel silly for buying expensive muesli in the past. =]

I love your recipes and this sounds so yummy!

It s similar to my daily breakfast, a bowl of rolled oats, unsalted roasted almonds and skim milk, which I freeze for a few minutes till it s really cold, even a bit icy. I eat it with a banana on the side, which saves time of cutting the banana.

This also works well as a travel breakfast if you are on your way to the airport or elsewhere in a taxi! Here s what it looks like, along with some other great travel food ideas: http://bit.ly/oxVNlQ

So is Almond Milk your go to Milk now?

I saw your Soy video, and even though I was able to find a company with seemingly organic and safe soy (Eden Soy) based off of a Soy Report (http://bit.ly/uWKZk ), after watching your soy video I just dropped off of using any form of Milk all together (As I don t trust using Cow s, Soy was apparently unsafe, and I figured, well who knows which Almond Milk brand is best and safest then), and now I kind of miss Milk.

What brand of Almond Milk would you recommend?
And is using Soy Milk just occasionally for breakfast here and there, a low enough quantity to be considered safe?

I m with you. After the soy milk fiasco I just gave up milk products, but sometimes the BF gets some almond milk for the house and I find it enjoyable. I haven t found a favorite brand yet, but we always go organic for environmental reasons.

I don t think soy is necessarily dangerous (I do enjoy the soy lattes from Blue Bottle Coffee), but it was just too much work for me to find real organic beans not from China. But if you find a brand you like, there s no reason not to have some on occasion.

I recently started to make yoghurt at home, because from the store I have to buy them in 500g plastic cups and it breaks my heart to see all that unnecessary waste.
I also bought a grain mix yesterday. So, soon enough I will have me some muesli 🙂

NutritionDiva posted a link to a recipe recently as well. Couldn t find it now. The presenter just roasted the mix with some honey+oil to have a crunchy muesli. That one I tried out already and it was delicious with yoghurt and some cinnamon on top.

What an amazing idea! Thanks for sharing! I love the idea of microwaving it with a bit of water, that sounds like a great substitute for my morning plain oats once in awhile .

tastes delicious with the syrup and cinnamon. way too much dried fruit for me though

So if you eat the muesli with milk or yogurt, the oats/grains are actually raw? I always wondered about that, if you can eat it raw (and digest it well). I don t microwave, so I cannot use your 2 min. technique.
Almond milk is super easy and cheap to make, compared to store bought.

They are a bit processed, so they aren t exactly raw. But yes, it s basically just uncooked oatmeal. Surprisingly tasty 🙂

I am going to do this! You prob. already know this but I thouht I would share IKEA has Muesli for about 5.00. I have never bought it b/c I thought it was pricey.

Haha, I definitely did not know that.

We live in a small town in Georgia and could not find a 5 grain cereal anywhere! We settled on Kashi s 7 Whole Grain Puffs, but now I know we will only have the option of eating it cold instead of warm/microwaved. Do you have a specific style of oats you would recommend? OR is there a website that sells Muesli-appropriate 5 grain cereals that you recommend?

Regular rolled oats should work. No need for 5 grain. Puffed probably isn t ideal, for the reason you mentioned.

I didn t catch the soy video. should soy be avoided? I heard fermented soy (natto, miso, and to some degree tofu) might be healthy due to the vitamin k-2 (mk-7) content.

I try to limit any wheat intake due to the gluten protein / phytic acid, so I ve been using kashi instant truly vanilla oatmeal, as it has a whopping 5g of soluble fiber (+2g of insoluble fiber), 9g of Protein, with only 6grams of sugar. I use it with goat milk. yummy!

But I d like to find a more natural, less processed oatmeal, while still maintaining the soluble fiber content. Does dorsel or old wessex have similar amounts of soluble fiber?

I ve seen the Holy Crap! cereal at my local health food store. It basically looks like muesli without nuts. It s probably very healthy, but is incredibly expensive. It s so easy and much less expensive to make your own muesli with ingredients from your pantry. You can even take note of the ingredients and throw those together for a fraction of the price.

I don t mean to be rude, but try and blend in your affiliate link a little better next time. The way you did it comes off a little shameless.

Why should I be ashamed of products I actually use and enjoy? People always ask for my recommendations and I m happy to share. Besides, since I m in CA the affiliate links don t even work. I just put them in there in case Amazon or CA one day change their minds. *fingers crossed*

Sorry, that was mean of me regardless.

No worries, it s easy to forget we re all human behind our blogs and social media, and that bloggers don t make squat for a living 😉

I discovered muesli months ago, and I ve been eating it ever since. BTW, I ve learned that the difference between muesli and granola is that granola is baked in the over and muesli isn t. Right now, I use buckwheat groats and spelt flakes as a base, then add whatever seeds, nuts, and dried fruit I have in the kitchen. I also like adding cinnamon and allspice.
At first, I tried to cook my muesli, but I ve since discovered and much prefer the traditional Swiss way of preparing it, that is, soaking. I put my muesli in a bowl the night before and mix it with milk or yogurt (others use juice, water, or non-dairy milks) and leave it in the fridge overnight. The grains soak up the liquid, expand, and soften. This actually makes a very unique, flavorful cereal in the morning — especially if there are a high-proportion of oats in the Muesli recipe. As the milk soaks, the oat flavors migrate in to the liquid, making an “oat milk” which is rich and creamy. (quote from answerfitness.com) In the morning, I ll usually add a banana or other fresh fruit to add sweetness and voila a superbreakfast extraordinaire!

Thank you so much I stumbled upon your site just an hour ago and I have been going through, literally, everything. ) Amazing and I feel inspired to cook more at home. Thank you once again.
P.S. you are adorable
