Dave’s Killer Bread OR Ezekiel Bread, Which Is Better for You?

Has this happened to you? You got connected with a health and fitness guru and have been following their prescriptions to a better life. They have sold you on the idea of eating only carbohydrates from a good source. One of those good sources came highly recommended and you have been eating Ezekiel Bread for a while now. You’re at the gym one day, having a great workout and making a new friend. As you chat about your eating habits, this new friend swears by Dave’s Killer Bread. Now you are wondering if perhaps you could make a better choice for your carbohydrate sources by switching to Dave’s Killer Bread. As you ponder this new thought, you hear the voice of your current health and fitness guru in your head speaking to you about how Ezekiel Bread is the only way. What do you do? Well, that is where I am able to help you. I’ve wondered the same thing myself and went about looking into the similarities and differences. I’ve made my choice and you can make yours. Let’s take a look at what the breads have in common. They both use “all organic whole grain” sources for their ingredients and that is a great thing. They both use sea salt in the bread making process. They both offer several varieties of bread for you to chose from....

How to Clean a Soaked Memory Foam Mattress

Memory foam mattress is made up of visco elastic technology. As soon as the foam adjusts to the temperature of your body, it suddenly adheres to your body’s contours in order to reduce body pains, pressure sores and correct body posture. However, this mattress also has open foam structure. Because of that, it can easily absorb moisture, water or liquid. And that is what you want to avoid if you are using a memory foam mattress. If you completely soak this mattress, it will take days before it gets fully dried up. And this is enough time for unwanted molds and mildew to settle in your bed. When your memory foam mattress gets soaking wet for some reason, here are some of the things you should do: 1. Immediately clean your mattress. Press your palms on the mattress surface to get rid of as much excess moisture and liquid as you can. You can also try using an absorbent towel as you press the mattress down so it will better absorb moisture. 2. If there are stains, prepare a natural cleaning solution. Mix one cup of lemon juice and one cup of lukewarm water. Put the mixture in a spray bottle and spray the solution on the affected area. Allow the solution to settle for a few minutes while you are working on the rest of the mattress. 3....

How to Make a Mexican Chef Salad

It wasn’t too long ago that healthy meals weren’t easy to come by when visiting the local restaurant; typical menu choices were mostly deep fried foods and large portions of meat with mounds of accompanying mashed potatoes smothered in thick country gravy. If you did want a salad, it was most often covered in heavy, fat laden dressings. Nowadays, the trend has reversed. More and more restaurants are showcasing healthy meals and putting the heart attack foods in the back pages of their menu. Thankfully, we can still cook at home and eat whatever type of food we feel like eating at any particular moment. This salad is for those more concerned about taste than calorie count. Wash and rinse a large head of iceberg lettuce, and then tear it into small pieces and place in a large bowl. You’ll need 8 ounces of ham and 8 ounces of chicken for this salad. Cook them in any manner you choose so long as it’s not deep fried. Cut them both into julienne strips (very long, thin strips). Layer these on top of your iceberg lettuce. Now wash and rinse 2 large tomatoes, 1 carrot, 1 stalk of celery, 2 green onions, and 3 medium Serrano peppers. Cut the tomatoes in half, drain their juice, and then chop into small squares. Shred the carrot and chop the celery. Slice the...

Chronic Lyme Disease – Metaphysical and Spiritual Aspects

Chronic or late-stage Lyme Disease tends to affect people who have big things to offer the world. These people may already seem to be “on their path” and often excel in multiple areas at once, including the healing arts. The illness seems to appear in people who could go even deeper with their healing and creative gifts but for one reason or another feel locked into their current lifestyle. Perhaps they have unexpressed creative gifts like photography, painting or writing. Maybe they’ve been waiting for life to “let up” before they indulge such longings. But the creative pursuits themselves offer healing – not just for the Lyme folks, but for the world in a bigger way. On the soul level, Chronic Lyme shows up like a roto-rooter, forcing people to dig deep and remove ALL blocks to creativity and healing. To the outside world, these people usually look like they have no blocks because they’re moving so effectively through life, but Life has other plans. It’s as though these souls came in with a bigger mission than their current lifestyle or world view allows. They may get nudged a few times, but if they don’t respond fully, then along come some little spirochetes to terrorize the immune and neurological systems into action. Like a guerrilla army, the bacteria sneak inside without detection and then launch a massive attack that...

Monoculture Farming – Disadvantages And Negative Effects On The Environment

The term monoculture in agriculture refers to the growing of a single crop over a large area. Monoculture is the norm in most large-scale commercial agriculture in the U.S. and in many parts of the world. Monoculture has certain short-term benefits, primarily in terms of economy of scale, and automation of the production process (and thus reduction of labor costs). However, in the long-term, the disadvantages of monoculture are overwhelming – this farming method has numerous negative effects on the environment, and furthermore, these negative effects tend to become amplified over the long-run. This article weighs the pros and cons of this sort of uniform approach to agriculture, and points to some alternative practices that are more sustainable, both environmentally and economically, and thus superior on all counts in the long-run. Pros and cons of monoculture farming: what are its advantages? It is immediately evident that I am not a fan of or advocate for monoculture. But there are some direct and strongly compelling reasons that people engage in this destructive practice. Before we talk about why this practice is so harmful, I find it fruitful to first examine its benefits or advantages. The main advantage is economy of scale, primarily through automation. Especially in the U.S., labor costs are very high, so anything that can reduce the use of labor in agriculture is highly likely to result in...
