  • A University study demonstrated that baking soda beats bleach when it comes to cleaning #pesticides off produce. And this isn’t just because cleaning your #food in bleach is generally a bad idea! While we wouldn’t recommend washing your #fruit and veg in bleach at home, it is what the farmers use, post harvest, to remove as much pesticide residue from the produce as possible, along with any bacteria and other organic matter. New research has discovered that a mixture of baking soda and water is actually more effective than the way the farmers have been using.

Scientists used state of the art technology to investigate the effectiveness of three solutions to remove pesticide residue from produce – in this instance, apples.
This University of Massachusetts study allows us to see that the standard post-harvest washing method (using Clorox bleach solution for 2 minutes) is not an effective means to completely remove pesticide residues on the surface of apples and further supports the idea that we should be washing our fruits and #vegetables at home. It also looked at using water by itself, and then used a solution of water and baking soda.

Researchers found that baking soda can make the pesticides degrade much faster compared to the other two solutions. The recipe requires a tablespoon of baking soda and 1.5 liters of water mixed into a bowl and applied on the produce. It’s usually easier to just let the produce soak in the bowl rather than apply it to the produce.

  • I’ve worked hard to get to this place. Most people don’t realize how much I’ve struggled with my health & weight. It started when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Hypothyroidism in 2006, at the start of my senior year. This disease is very common & is the leading cause of hypothyroidism. After almost 14 years, I am JUST now figuring out what works for my body.. but it did NOT come easy. I often get the line that I am already thin, not to worry, etc. not knowing the internal battle I’ve faced & how hard I’ve worked to get here. .
I’ve always been active, always played sports, I loved the gym and I already ate pretty healthy. That was my greatest saving grace throughout this journey. I knew that most people with my disease weren’t so lucky so I counted my blessings. Still, I had horrible flares where I felt all of the Hashimoto’s symptoms. My doctor told me I’d have to take a pill everyday for the rest of my life. That was the fix. As for the symptoms, I was asked, “Do you need an antidepressant?” I felt hopeless.
.
I had such bad fatigue. I would sleep 14 hours & still feel tired. I missed classes & overslept alarms. I had horrible joint pain all over, I bought knee braces to help. My hair started to fall out, I had to chop it off. I had brain fog so bad I couldn’t speak a full sentence. The anxiety, depression, bloating, pale & puffy face, dry skin, constipation, goiter, cold hands & feet, trouble swallowing, insomnia, indigestion and weight gain were just some of my symptoms! Overall, I was just tired, misinformed and hopeless. I had to step up & be my own advocate. I realized no one was going to do it for me. I was suffering in silence.
.
I started reading. A LOT. Articles. Books. You name it. I’d stay up for HOURS reading about others who have healed through diet alone. I read that gluten is a huge NO NO for Hashimoto’s patients. I eliminated it. Even when the docs said, “there isn’t any evidence...” BLAH BLAH BLAH. But I finally started to feel better. I fell off the wagon a few times since, & realized the impact of how certain foods made me feel. Fast forward to present day, I now avoid gluten entirely & I limit dairy, soy & eggs.

  • 過年吃蜜餞、果乾怎麼吃才健康?

其實以果乾和蜜餞的製作原理來說,兩者的水活性都很低,因此不需要添加防腐劑,只是顧及現代人不愛太乾柴的果乾、蜜餞製作直接以高糖分糖漬時外表會皺縮不好看,因此有些廠商為了讓果乾保持一定水分、或是在用低糖度初步糖漬蜜餞時,就有可能會加入防腐劑,以確保不會腐敗。

此外,果乾有些時候可能會添加色素、漂白劑讓蜜餞果乾更好看,但多少會影響健康。

為什麼一種蜜餞,同時會使用好幾種甜味劑?

糖和甜味劑都能夠讓人感覺到甜,但其實不同的糖與甜味劑,會帶來不同的甜味感受,在舌頭上能分為前甜、中甜、後甜。也就是說,甜味是有不同層次的。如果製作蜜餞只用蔗糖,成本和熱量都會很高,而如果適當混合不同的甜味劑,減糖的同時還能讓產品味道更有層次。

  • Fruit Mince Pies with Bundaberg Rum
 Trash Food Guidance 	1. Fragrance and Flavour: The pastry was surprising short. I was expecting it to be bland but this was nicely sweet and had buttery flavour. The filling was very flavoursome and nicely fruity. However, I did not detect any rum or much spice. I think this should have been more edgy and "adult". This was a mince pie for babies. 14/20 	2. Texture: I enjoyed the level of crumble here. It wasn't chewy and elastic, like I thought it would be. The fruit filling was very much like mush though. I wasn't able to distinguish the components of the mince. If you're a fan of soft foods, you'll love it. 16/20 	3. Appearance and packaging: I love the Aussie branding here. Good ol' Bundaberg Rum. The boozy branding was the reason I bought this. I think this is a great cross-over item as it incorporates celebration food and booze. This is basically what Christmas  means to me. 17/20 	4. Value/ price: This was on sale due to the end of season sell out. This was $2 at Woolworth. Yay. End of season! 16/20 	5. Novelty and fun: The fun part of this is boozey branding because mince pies are standard for Christmas time. I don't think these actually contain alcohol though. It's just a gimmick. 12/20 
Total - 75/💯 Bonus Trash Factor: Booze related snack items seem to be invading supermarket shelves. I have notice Bailey's liqueur has been prolific. I am seeing flavoured milks, cakes and biscuits with this branding. Would someone who is not supposed to drink alcohol be ok with eating a snack that is branded with alcohol? It doesn't actually contain booze, but it contains the idea of booze. Is that allowed? Depends on the person, I guess. Plus 9.66 for being alcohol free.

  • NARANJA 
La naranja es mi fruta favorita, tiene una alta concentración en calcio, fósforo y potasio así como también contiene las vitaminas del grupo B, A y C.
La convierten en una opción muy saludable y eficaz contra los resfriados. Además, esta fruta es rica en agua y fibra alimentaria, por lo que tiene una gran eficacia saciante. Ya se te antojó una ?👀

  • Hey guys here are some simple breakfast ideas.

For me personally when I start my day with a healthy satisfying meal Im less likely to nibble on less nutritious things throughout the day.

These simple ideas can all be done in under 10 minutes.

1️⃣ Toast 🍞+ Avocado 🥑 + Egg 🍳 : 1 wholewheat bread, ½ medium avocado, 1 egg.

2️⃣ Yoghurt + Oats 🌾 + Berries 🍓 : 150g low fat greek yoghurt, 50g oats, ½ cup mixed berries.

3️⃣ Omelette 🥚 : 1 egg, 2 egg white, 2 vege sausages ( or sausage of choice), 30g feta cheese, ½ cup spinach.

4️⃣ Oatmeal 🌾+ Chia + Fruit 🍏: 60g oats, 1 cup almond milk, ½ tablespoon chia seeds, ½ tablespoon honey (or sweetener of choice), ¼ sliced apple, few raspberries.

5️⃣ Berry Smoothie: 1 cup frozen berries, ½ cup almond milk, ½ greek yoghurt, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

6️⃣ Toast 🍞+ Peanut Butter 🥜 + Banana🍌 : 1 wholewheat bread,  1 tablespoon peanut butter, ½ banana.

These are just ideas please customise servings sizes to what works best for you.

I often hear “I don’t have time”. My suggestion is wake up a bit earlier and make the time. 
You need to prioritise your health and make the time. 
Which one would be your breakfast of choice?

Hope you guys are having a great week.

Xoxo Jess💖

  • ⭐Spinach Wraps With Crispy Oven Baked Potato Fries⭐ ⁠
Repost @elavegan 💚⁠
Recipe⠀⁠
Spinach Wraps:⠀⁠
1 cup chickpea flour also called garbanzo bean flour (120 g)⠀⁠
1/2 cup tapioca flour/starch (60 g)⠀⁠
2 oz fresh baby spinach leaves (60 g)⠀⁠
1 - 1 1/8 cup water (240-270 ml)⠀⁠
1/3 tsp salt⠀⁠
⠀⁠
Instructions⠀⁠
Process all ingredients in your food processor or blender until the batter is smooth. Use 1 cup of water if you plan to make thicker/smaller tortillas for tacos. Add about 1 1/8 cup of water if you want to make thinner/bigger tortillas for e.g. burritos.⠀⁠
Pour about 1/3 cup of the batter into a non-stick skillet. You can add a few drops of oil to the skillet but I made the experience that the tortillas turn out great without oil. Make sure to use a non-stick skillet.⠀⁠
Cook for two minutes on low-medium heat, flip the tortilla and cook on the other side for about one minute.⠀⁠
⠀⁠
Baked Fries Recipe:⠀⁠
1 large baking potato⠀⁠
1 tablespoon olive oil⠀⁠
1/2 teaspoon paprika⠀⁠
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⠀⁠
1/2 teaspoon chili powder⠀⁠
1/2 teaspoon onion powder⠀⁠
⠀⁠
Directions⠀⁠
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).⠀⁠
Cut potato into wedges. Mix olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder and onion powder together. Coat potatoes with oil/spice mixture and place on a baking sheet.⠀⁠
Bake for 45 minutes in preheated oven
