4 Tricks to Find Popular Recipes Online

4 Tricks to Find Popular Recipes Online

It’s amazing how information is much easier to find online. Search engines like Google have changed the way information is organized, allowing us to effectively find what we are looking for quickly. I remember before how recipe ideas used to be passed down on cards from generation to generation, but this is also changing. Recipe guides can now be downloaded digitally and viewed on our smartphones.

It’s amazing how things are simpler, but provide so much value at the same time. I’ve always been intrigued with different kinds of recipes because cooking is a true art form. We take time in the way we prepare food, and love to share the eating experience with the ones we love. For this reason, I’ve always been looking for creative ways to find the best, most popular recipes online.

Today, I’ll be going over 4 tricks I’ve been using to find popular recipes online, so you can apply them the next time you enter your kitchen to prepare your meal.

Google Trends

If you have somewhat of an idea about the type of meal you’ll like to prepare, then head over to Google Trends. This tool will give you a breakdown into popular searches people are doing online. All you need to do is enter your target keyword and Google will bring up the top 10 search results. You can skim through each one, getting a glimpse into awesome recipes; you can write them down or print them. As mentioned, you need to have a starting “target” keyword to paste into Google Trends. I’ve been using this tool to do research online, and it’s helped me come up with creative recipes for myself and to pass on to family members.

Follow this simple process:

  • Have a target keyword ready;
  • head over to Google Trends;
  • skim through the top 10 results;
  • visit each website and print the recipe;
  • for additional support, you can bookmark the page too.

Pinterest

This social media platform doesn’t get enough credit for providing lots of valuable information. It’s a great social networking site because it’s a compilation of images created on a complete portfolio. By visiting one portfolio, you’ll be able to get a complete recipe guide downloaded in seconds. You can even download the Pinterest application to your phone so you have the guides quickly available. Head over to Pinterest and do a search using your target keyword; it’ll generate other popular searches at the same time. You’ll not only find searches related to your target keyword, but other awesome, popular related search queries too. It’s a solid way to find thousands of popular recipes within minutes.

Smart Phone Applications

The smartphone industry has grown 68% in the last 5 years mostly because of how simplistic they have made our lives. Through your phone, you can browse the internet, do your banking, and even use the online GPS. What transforms the industry, even more, is the ability to download custom applications that fit your needs.

For example, you can download applications for GPS, gaming, texting, video calls, and weight loss. There’s tons of applications for cooking too, so you can explore popular ideas at work, on the road, and while in the kitchen. You don’t need to be in front of your computer anymore because the application is free to download and a must-have if you’re looking for popular recipe ideas.

Amazon

I’m suggesting this online website NOT for you to purchase books, but for the digital library they have. Almost all cooking books are now in digital format making it easier for you to retrieve popular recipes instantaneously. Amazon even has their own application, known as the Kindle, where you can skim through books, highlight, and bookmark popular recipes. I use Kindle for researching content marketing, recipes, general reading, and exploring trending news.

I especially like to use Amazon because they have a huge selection of recipe guides which you can preview for free. Skim through and preview the guides before buying them in digital format. They also have a great return policy just in case you are not happy with the purchase. Finally, digital books are much cheaper than buying actual books so you’ll save a lot of money and find popular recipes at the same time.

Final Thoughts

Cooking great tasting food is a way to connect and engage with people. During dinners, people have intimate conversations and connect in a very deep way. This connection is stronger when you’ve prepared the great food that’s on the table. If you love to cook, then use the strategies above to search for popular recipe ideas online. Get started now by going online visiting Google Trends,…and download cooking applications for your smartphone.

How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

Ebb and flow. Contraction and expansion. Highs and lows. It’s all about the cycles of life.

The entire course of our life follows this up and down pattern of more and then less. Our days flow this way, each following a pattern of more energy, then less energy, more creativity and periods of greater focus bookended by moments of low energy when we cringe at the thought of one more meeting, one more call, one more sentence.

The key is in understanding how to use the cycles of ebb and flow to our advantage. The ability to harness these fluctuations, understand how they affect our productivity and mood and then apply that knowledge as a tool to improve our lives is a valuable strategy that few individuals or corporations have mastered.

Here are a few simple steps to start using this strategy today:

Review Your Past Flow

Take just a few minutes to look back at how your days and weeks have been unfolding. What time of the day are you the most focused? Do you prefer to be more social at certain times of the day? Do you have difficulty concentrating after lunch or are you energized? Are there days when you can’t seem to sit still at your desk and others when you could work on the same project for hours?

Do you see a pattern starting to emerge? Eventually you will discover a sort of map or schedule that charts your individual productivity levels during a given day or week.  That’s the first step. You’ll use this information to plan your days going forward.

Schedule According to Your Flow Pattern

Look at the types of things you do each day…each week. What can you move around so that it’s a better fit for you? Can you suggest to your team that you schedule meetings for late morning if you can’t stand to be social first thing? Can you schedule detailed project work or highly creative tasks, like writing or designing when you are best able to focus? How about making sales calls or client meetings on days when you are the most social and leaving billing or reports until another time when you are able to close your door and do repetitive tasks.

Keep in mind that everyone is different and some things are out of our control. Do what you can. You might be surprised at just how flexible clients and managers can be when they understand that improving your productivity will result in better outcomes for them.

Account for Big Picture Fluctuations

Look at the bigger picture. Consider what happens during different months or times during the year. Think about what is going on in the other parts of your life. When is the best time for you to take on a new project, role or responsibility? Take into account other commitments that zap your energy. Do you have a sick parent, a spouse who travels all the time or young children who demand all of your available time and energy?

We all know people who ignore all of this advice and yet seem to prosper and achieve wonderful success anyway, but they are usually the exception, not the rule. For most of us, this habitual tendency to force our bodies and our brains into patterns of working that undermine our productivity result in achieving less than desired results and adding more stress to our already overburdened lives.

Why not follow the ebb and flow of your life instead of fighting against it?
