How to Get The Most from your Juicer

When it comes to juicing, there are many different factors you need to consider. But with these two powerhouse veggies, the most important factor is how much juice each one yields. Some juicers are better at extracting juice from carrots than from ginger, and vice versa. So, if you’re looking for the best juicer for ginger and carrots, here are some things to keep in mind.

When it comes to juicing, two of the most important factors are yield and nutrient retention. Yield is the amount of juice that a juicer can extract from a given amount of produce. Nutrient retention is the number of nutrients that are retained in the juice.

Carrots are a great source of beta-carotene, which is converted to Vitamin A in the body. They’re also a good source of fiber, potassium, and magnesium. Ginger is a good source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. It’s also thought to boost the immune system.

When it comes to yield, centrifugal juicers tend to do better with carrots than with ginger. Masticating juicers have the opposite effect and do better with ginger than with carrots.

As far as nutrient retention goes, masticating juicers tend to retain more nutrients than centrifugal juicers. This is because the juicing process with a masticating juicer is slower and gentler, which allows for more nutrient retention.

If you’re looking for the best juicer for ginger and carrots, a masticating juicer is your best bet. Not only will it give you a higher yield of

Supercharge Your Body With The Bulletproof Diet

Supercharge your body.  Upgrade your brain.  Be bulletproof.  Have you heard the claims of Dave Asprey, computer security expert, Silicon Valley investor, and entrepreneur?  Asprey has spent the last fifteen years experimenting with diet, and has lost over 100 pounds.

The Bulletproof diet is the result of biohacking, which he defines as system thinking, science, biology, and self-experimentation to upgrade your body, a process of becoming superhuman.  Become Bulletproof.  Achieve a state of high performance, resilience, and vibrant health.  The goal is to have your body, mind, and life work together for optimum performance.

Asprey feels he has been transformed into a better entrepreneur, a better husband, and a better father through his techniques, and is sharing them.  Dieters can benefit from his research and experimentation, rather than complete the entire process by themselves.

Asprey has utilized the knowledge of more than 120 doctors, biochemists, nutritionists, and meditation experts to develop his lifestyle plan.  He personally lost over 100 pounds, increased his IQ by 20 points, and lowered his biological age.  The Bulletproof diet is available for you to follow, and perhaps achieve similar successes.

The Bulletproof diet focuses on foods that give you better nutrition, rather than traditional diets that focus on less food.  Traditional diets often result in weakness, moodiness, lowered energy, and losses to the immune system.  The Bulletproof diet identifies foods that keep you energized, stronger, and even make you smarter.

The Bulletproof diet is based on eating 50 – 60 percent of calories from fat,

Some Interesting Ways to Cook Fragrant Rice

Cooking rice is somehow perceived to be an Eastern thing. You have it in your kitchen, but it’s always at the back of the farthest shelf; when you actually get down to cooking rice, it gets pushed to the back of the plate. It doesn’t have to be that way though. Aromatic basmati can fill your kitchen and sometimes a whole street with an aroma that’s irresistible. For recipes that will really shine up your culinary reputation, here is a sophisticated way to start. But be warned, this one can be a really great way to get your children hooked on vegetarianism.

Let’s call this the spinach and Swiss chard basmati. This is a great way to start cooking rice for children because it tastes and smells almost as good even when it’s cold in the lunch box. It’s easy to cook and you don’t need any special equipment, although a rice cooker will make the job much easier.

Here is what you will need :

A pound of Swiss chard, and half as much spinach. You’ll need a bit of extra virgin olive oil, an onion, three eggs, thyme, rosemary, garlic, Gruyère cheese, and of course, you’ll need a cup of brown basmati rice. We begin by getting the rice ready. If you have a rice cooker, cooking rice becomes really easy. If you don’t, you could just steam it in boiling water.

Start with the Swiss chard. Cut off the stems, and strip out all the leaves. These

A lot of people might not realize it, but taking care of your mental health can take a lot of focus and practice. The human mind can be helped in various ways, but the work that it takes to keep yourself focused is ongoing.

Reasons You Need To Watch your Fat Intake

There’s a lot of debate over fat. Good fats, bad fats, how much fat you should consume. And there’s a myriad of foods that proudly display Fat-Free on the label. People eat these thinking they are a better solution. The thing is, if you went on a completely fat-free diet and did not consume any fats at all, your health would take a nosedive and you would be severely malnourished. The problem is not fats, it’s the type of fats you consume. The amount of fat you consume also has repercussions. However, if you’re eating healthy fats, chances are you’ll feel more satisfied and stay full longer and not overeat.

Too often, when people look at food labels, they look at the amount of fat as a whole and never bother to break it down into whether it’s good fats or bad fats. Nuts contain a lot of fat, as do avocados, but those are good fats. Your body needs good fats. Good fats help keep cholesterol from building up and keep your heart healthy.

You should avoid trans fats and saturated fats as much as you possibly can.

There are two main types of fat: saturated and unsaturated. Under those two main types there are other types. The good fats are the unsaturated ones. Under those are polyunsaturated and the monounsaturated. When these are eaten in moderation, they can help lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease, and keep your body healthy. These include vegetable oils,

A Little Unknown Secret About Organic Gardening

The greatest little secret about Organic Gardening is that it’s no different than regular gardening. You heard right! There just ain’t any difference. Well, well only a slight difference. The fact is you still need to plan your garden and then work the plan, regardless of whether you are planting a regular garden or doing it the organic way. The information in this article, kindly supplied by one of the leading landscape gardeners in Aberdeen, Barmekin Groundcare will show you a few of the similarities and differences between the two.

It’s important for you to understand that a proper plan is necessary to have a successful garden. When you talk with “veteran gardeners” one of the first things they will tell you is “too plan your garden.” As an example of a planned garden, the first step of a planned garden would be the location of the garden and the size. The second step would be determining the type of garden; trees, vegetables, flowers, fruit, bushes or a mixture of all of the above.

Once the above decisions have been made a determination should be made as to the spacing of the rows and which plants or veggies are compatible with each other. The importance of this step can’t be stressed enough, nor is it any less important in either regular gardening or in organic gardening.

The reason for this is some plants require more nutrients, sunshine or even more water to help them flourish. Failure to have compatible
