How to Make a Perfect Over-Easy Eggs

If you like over easy eggs, but hate to flip them, here's a nice thing I learned while cooking for a living. Have a nice flat pan or a skillet that allows for a flat center. Get a cup with some water, and a good lid that covers the pan or at least the eggs.

Heat your oil or butter to warm, drop in the eggs and immediately make a circle of water around the edge of the egg(s). Cover and steam them till the yolks are white and not yellow. Voila!


1 egg           
Cooking spray or pat of butter
Salt and pepper (to taste)
2 tbsp water

Tools needed:                

Skillet with lid (preferably glass lid if you have it)  

Lightly spray a medium low heat skillet with cooking spray or use a pat of butter. Gently crack two eggs into the skillet keeping the yolk intact and keeping them separated in the pan. When whites are set around the edges, season with salt and pepper.

Add 1-2 tablespoons of water the middle of the pan and sides of the eggs. Cover with the lid and increase the heat slightly so the water begins to steam and bubble. When you see a white cloud inching up the sides of the yolks, they're almost done. When the yolk is completely covered by white, they are done! Serve immediately.

Make Your Own Face Masks—No Sewing Machine Required

As COVID-19 spreads across the United world, hospitals are struggling to keep fully functional while running through their limited supplies of face masks, gowns, and other protective equipment.

Tutorials for DIY masks have proliferated across social media and the internet as news of the dire conditions in hospitals across the country hit the news, and people want to pitch in. But the value of such a mask may not lie so much in helping medical professionals, but in helping to protect yourself and the people around you.

Surgical masks aren’t meant to shield the wearer from infection, but to protect others by corralling any infectious droplets that may come out of your mouth or nose—whether you’re symptomatic or not. That’s why authorities have insisted only people presenting symptoms or suspected of having COVID-19 should wear them.

“A mask is only ever as good as the wearer, and isn’t a replacement for social distancing and good hand hygiene,” says Anna Davies, one of the researchers in the Public Health England study.

How To Make Disinfectant Wipes / Home Sanitizing Wipes

The big problem is to find these cleaning products...we went shopping today, and there is very little to buy...aisle after aisle of empty shelves. In this time of coronavirus pandemic, you may already be forced to make your own cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting solution.

  • 2 tablespoon of Clorox
  • 2 cups water


Add bleach to water; stir well. Cut paper towel roll to fit into desired container.Pour enough solution over paper towel roll to fully absorb. Remove cardboard center from paper towel roll.

Pull pieces of paper towel (wipes) from center hole of the roll. Cover surface; allow to sit for 10 full minutes.

Bleach rapidly degrades in the presence of light and when mixed with water. Bleach solutions require a full 10 minutes of contact time to ensure complete disinfection. So if you making a spray one part bleach to 9 parts water spayed on countertop, must be left there for 10 minutes will kill virus and bacteria. Just wiping the countertop does nothing.

As a good rule of thumb, you may want to set a timer so you can monitor surfaces and ensure they're still wet. You may also want to make sure that you're sanitizing frequently used objects and surfaces daily, especially things like doorknobs, keyboards, faucet handles, and more. You don't want to forget your phone, either—you can even use these wipes or 70% isopropyl alcohol on Apple products, according to Apple.

Following best practices, and advises that if you're using wipes, you should make sure you're only wiping in one direction, as studies have suggested that doing so can reduce the risk of recontamination. Stay safe, and stay healthy!

What Happens To Your Body When You Walk Barefoot On Earth.

An expert in energy medicine field and a biology professor at the University of Pittsburgh explains that walking barefoot can provide a feeling of well-being and improve health.

Years of extensive research has shown that connecting to the Earth's natural energy, by walking barefoot on grass, sand, dirt or rock can diminish chronic pain, fatigue and other ailments that plague so many people today. This connection is referred to as Earthing or Grounding.

One reason that running in bare feet could help strengthen your feet and arches is that landing with a mid-foot or forefoot strike can actually engage the muscles in your feet.

Benefits of Earthing

Dr. Jonathan Kaplan, a foot and ankle specialist and surgeon at Hoag Orthopaedic Institute, sheds some light on how Earthing improves the physical health of your feet:
  1. Better control of your foot position as it lands on the ground.
  2. Improves balance.
  3. Improves body awareness in relation to the surroundings. This is one of the reasons it is recommended that toddlers don’t wear shoes when first walking.
  4. By improving foot mechanics, it also helps in keeping your knees, hips, and the core in proper alignment and movement.
  5. Prevents your foot and ankle joints from exaggerated movements and range of motion which also allows for proper strength and stability in the muscles and ligaments in your ankle and legs.
  6. Decreases issues from shoes which don’t fit properly (i.e. bunions, hammer toes).
  7. Increases leg strength, which helps improve lower back strength.
I think we would be hard-pressed to find a better win-win situation. By walking, we exercise our muscles and cardiovascular system, improve our mental health, reduce stress and support our overall wellness. Simply taking our shoes off seems to multiply those benefits by allowing us to synchronize with the earth’s natural electric charge.

However, you should always be aware of your surroundings and make sure it's safe for you to walk barefoot (i.e. the terrain isn't sharp or has the potential to injure your feet). If you're wondering whether walking barefoot is the right move for you, it's always best to consult your primary doctor before hitting the grass.

Overall, it might be worth it to kick your shoes off once in a while. On an evolutionary level, it all makes complete sense: We evolved close to the earth, and it’s only relatively recently that we have been so keen to remove ourselves from nature.

Moreover, it also states that earthing would help to regulate both the endocrine and the nervous systems. Thus for a healthier mind and body, AYUSH suggests that you take a fixed amount of time to walk barefoot, thus taking in the positive energy from the Mother Earth.

Surprising Benefits of Eating Lemons

Lemons are a popular fruit that people use in small quantities to add flavor to food. However, they rarely consume them alone due to their intense, sour taste. Lemonsgive flavor to baked goods, sauces, salad dressings, marinades, drinks, and desserts, and they are also a good source of vitamin C.

Lemon water is generally safe to drink, but there are a few potential side effects to be aware of. Lemon contains citric acid, which may erode tooth enamel. The citric acid may cause heartburn in some people. Others experience relief from heartburn, as lemon juice becomes alkaline, reducing acidity in digestion.

Lemon water can promote fullness, support hydration, boost metabolism and increase weight loss. However, lemon water is no better than regular water when it comes to losing fat. That being said, it is tasty, easy to make and can be used as a low-calorie replacement for higher-calorie beverages.

Lemon water contains high amounts of citrate, and numerous human studies have found it can successfully help treat kidney stones However, lemon water may also be a good alternative for those who don't tolerate potassium citrate as a first-line treatment.

High blood pressure can lead to scary stuff like kidney failure, a heart attack or a stroke. Luckily, eating lemons on the regular has been proven to help.

Pectin, which is found in the peel and pulp of citrus fruits like lemons, has been proven to help people feel fuller, longer. 

Although regular inflammation is important for your body’s immune response to fight off something like a cold, chronic inflammation can lead to weight gain, fatigue, digestive issues, mood swings, and even cancer -- pretty nasty stuff. Luckily, vitamin C has antioxidant properties that have been proven to reduce inflammation.

If you’ve ever had a kidney stone, then you know the excruciating pain that comes with trying to pass one. But if lemons are regularly a part of your diet, you may not have to worry about it. Lemons have a high amount of citrate, which has been proven to naturally prevent the formation of kidney stones.

How to Flush Kidney Stones Naturally With Just Four Ingredients

Kidney stones are a common health problem. Passing these stones can be incredibly painful, and unfortunately, people who have experienced kidney stones are more likely to get them again.
kidney stones also known as renal stones or nephrolithiasis, kidney stones are composed of hard, solid waste materials that build up in the kidneys and form crystals. While smaller stones are usually not a problem, larger stones may cause a blockage in part of your urinary system as they leave your body. This can lead to severe pain, vomiting, and bleeding.
When it comes to kidney stone prevention, drinking plenty of fluids is generally recommended. Fluids dilute and increase the volume of the stone-forming substances in urine, which makes them less likely to crystallize.
This drink has helped so many people, to begin with, you will need the following four
2 cucumbers
Some mint leaves
1 liter of water
Natural, organic honey
Put all of the ingredients in the blender (do not peel the cucumber.) Blend until the mix appears smooth and texturized.
Water is a must-have ingredient, especially when fighting kidney stones. You should be drinking at least ten 12-ounce glasses of water per day until the stone passes. This recipe calls for a liter, which is approximately 34 ounces. Water helps dissolve the kidney stone and promotes urination – two things critical for kidney stone passage. Plenty of water will help flush out toxins and relieve the pain of kidney stones as well.
If you've had a kidney stone, you're very likely to develop another one within 5 to 10 years. Fortunately, taking certain dietary measures may help reduce this risk.
For example, you can try increasing your fluid intake, consuming foods rich in certain nutrients, eating less animal protein, and avoiding sodium.

11 Foods to Avoid If You Have High Blood Pressure

Blood pressure is the pressure of circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels. Most of this pressure is due to work done by the heart by pumping blood through the circulatory system. Used without further specification, "blood pressure" usually refers to the pressure in large arteries of the systemic circulation. Here’s a list of 10 foods and drinks to be cautious of or avoid to help you lower your blood pressure.
Salt: Salt is one of the most problematic ingredients for people with high blood pressure, and it’s important to make sure you don’t eat too much of it. If it’s difficult to cut salt out of your cooking, focus instead on other ingredients that can help make your dishes taste better.
Deli meat: Ham, bacon, and deli meats are often prepared by soaking them in a brine bath made with salt water and spices. While cured meats can be really tasty, it’s best to avoid them.
Bread: Similar to processed meats, bread is also high in sodium, and therefore, it should only be consumed in moderation if you have hypertension. Studies show that a single slice of bread can contain as much as 200 milligrams of sodium before ever piling on your favorite deli meats and condiments.
Pickles: Pickled vegetables also carry a lot of salt. Pickling is a process where food sits in a solution of salt (to kill off bad bacteria) and other flavoring agents. Because of this, pickled foods often are high in salt. If you’re concerned about your blood pressure, avoid eating pickles or other pickled foods like kimchi and sauerkraut, or at least wash them before eating to get rid of some of the salt.
Pizza: If you’re a fan of pizza and have been diagnosed with hypertension, this is one food that you will want to avoid. Most pizzas, frozen or fresh, are loaded with cheese, cured meats, and tomato sauce, and all of these ingredients contain a large amount of sodium. In fact, many of the most popular pizza brands contain over 700 mg of sodium, according to the USDA.
Red Meat: Despite being a great source of protein, red meat contains saturated fat and sodium, both of which can contribute to hypertension. It is also worth noting that the saturated fat in red meat can lead to clogged arteries, which can trigger heart disease, heart attacks, and strokes.
Bacon: Despite being an American breakfast staple for so many people, bacon is sadly another food that should be avoided if you have hypertension. Bacon is chock-full of fat, sodium, and calories. According to the USDA, 3 slices of this delicious breakfast meat contains upwards of 576 mg of sodium, 311 calories, and 3 grams of saturated fat.
Saturated and trans fats: If you have hypertension, it would be a good idea to eschew all foods that contain saturated and trans fats from your diet as they can both raise blood pressure. Some of the foods that contain saturated fats include full-dairy products, red meat, and chicken skin. These fats can also increase your risk of developing coronary heart disease as well. Ideally, you should consider replacing animal, saturated, and trans fats with healthier plant-based fats, which can be found in seeds, nuts, olive oil, and avocados.
Alcohol: An alcoholic drink can raise your blood pressure slightly, but if you drink too much, your blood pressure may rise dramatically. For people who drink alcohol on a daily or semi-daily basis, cutting back to recommended levels can lower blood pressure by about 4 mmHg.
Caffeine: Coffee, tea, and energy drinks often come with caffeine, which can cause your blood pressure to rise. For people with a healthy blood pressure, caffeine really isn’t an issue, but if you have hypertension, it’s recommended that you limit your caffeine intake and choose decaf or half-caff coffee or caffeine-free teas instead.
Canned Foods: Despite being delicious and convenient, canned foods should be avoided if you have hypertension due to their high sodium content. The same can be said canned and packaged broths and stocks as well. Canned or bottled tomato products like ketchup and tomato sauce, for example, can pack almost as much sodium as canned soups.
All in all, foods that are high in fat and sodium should be avoided if you have hypertension. The best way to manage hypertension and ultimately get it under control is by consuming a healthy diet.

I Drank Celery Juice For 7 Days And This Is What Happened

CELERY JUICE is the hot new health trend that I had to try for myself. I tried drinking celery juice for 7 days and here's what happened. Fresh celery juice is one of the most powerful and healing juices one can drink.

Celery juice is a medicinal, not a caloric drink, so you'll still need breakfast afterward to power you through the morning. Simply wait at least 15 to 30 minutes after drinking your celery juice before consuming anything else.

Celery juice is extremely detoxifying, as it flushes out old toxins and poisons that have built up over time. It can help kill viruses, bad bacteria, fungi and parasites in your body. This greatly helps to maintain a healthy gut, improve digestion and reduce bloating.

My first few days of drinking celery juice, I felt absolutely amazing. My digestion was great, my bloating was going down and I felt so much more energy.

After four days passed, my digestion, bloating and acne became better than ever before. My acne didn’t completely disappear, but it has been drastically alleviated.

Six days in, The difference that celery juice has made to my skin is pretty significant; it looks and feels more hydrated and plumper, something I’m putting down to celery’s anti-inflammatory properties.

As well as a major skin boost, I’ve lost 4 lbs since the beginning of the week. That could be down to my diet being better generally, but I’m sure the morning juice didn’t hurt in terms of putting me on the right track for the day.

I also have more energy and I’m sleeping better than I have in a while. Given the huge improvements after just five days, I’ll definitely be continuing to start my day with a glass of the green stuff.

I’ve been drinking celery juice for 2 + weeks now and I feel amazing! I’ve lost 4lbs and my stomach has flatten out. I think most of that was bloat from poor digestion. I ate clean and organic but still had issues. I swear by this! My appetite has been suppressed and my skin seems to look better.
