Admit it, most of us eat fast, a little too fast. In the minutes it takes us to politely devour the food presented to us, do we really take the time to enjoy the hours of preparation and multitude of people behind its process from farm to table? And in those few minutes, how much of what we eat do we really taste? Over the last few years, I’ve had to teach myself to chew once again. I had realized that my multitasking persona was cramming ‘eating’ into the ‘to do’ list. As Simone Samuels gives us tips to improve digestion, food combining takes it one step further.

Pop quiz: which is more polluted, indoor air or outdoor air? 10 times out of 10, indoor air in your house, office or apartment is going to be worse than the air outside. Indoor air pollution has been ranked among the top 5 greatest risks to public health by the EPA, and stagnant indoor air allows pollutants to build up and stick to the things inside of your home.
The things in our homes emit some nasty toxic chemicals like formaldehyde for example. You can also be impacted by pollutants like pollen, bacteria, mould, and various outdoor contaminants that find their way inside.
Fortunately, houseplants can help us solve some of these air quality issues. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, these houseplants are basically impossible to kill. Let’s check them out! Article from http://simpleorganiclife.org/9-houseplants/
1. Garden MumThis plant was found by NASA to be a real air-purifying beast. It removes ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde, and xylene from your home’s air. It’s popular and inexpensive, plus they can be planted outside too.
2. Spider Plant
Spider plants are incredibly easy to grow, so if you’re a beginner, this is a great one to start with. It lights bright, indirect light and sends out shoots with flowers on them that will eventually grow into baby spider plants that you can propagate yourself. Before too long, you’ll have more spider plants than you’ll know what to do with.
3. DracaenaThere are over 40 kinds of dracaena plants, which makes it easy to find the right one for you. They remove benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, and xylene from the air. They are toxic to cats and dogs though, so if you have pets, you might want to think twice about this one.
4. FicusFicus trees are a favorite of mine as they are able to grow quite large depending on the type of pot you have them in. They typically stand between 2 and 10 feet tall and have some serious air cleaning abilities. You can also keep it outside in the spring and summer. The ficus removes benzene, trichloroethylene and formaldehyde from indoor air.
5. Peace LilyNot only does the peace lily send up beautiful flowers, but they’re impossible to kill and have great air cleaning abilities. They flower through most of the summer and prefer shady spots with moist but not soggy soil. It removes ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene.
6. Boston fern.This plant likes cool locations with high humidity and indirect light. Bathrooms are a perfect spot for these little friends. They remove pollutants like xylene and formaldehyde from indoor air.
7. Snake Plant/Mother-in-law’s Tongue.I see this one all over the place in offices and restaurants – and for good reason. They’re pretty much impossible to kill. They need water only occasionally and prefer drier conditions. They don’t need much direct sunlight either. They remove benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and xylene from indoor air.
8. Bamboo PalmBamboo palms are most effective at filtering formaldehyde. They thrive in full sun and bright light. They grow as high as 12 foot too, making them an incredible presence indoors. They remove benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene.
9. Aloe VeraAloe is a multi-use plant for sure. It has health benefits when consumed in smaller amounts, helps relieve burns, and cleans your indoor air as well. It removes formaldehyde effectively from indoor air.

Some Finnish universities have recently conducted a study of emotions, more exactly what you physically feel with different emotions.
When you're furious your feel your heart beat in your throat and feel tense, while experiencing a warm and mellow feeling when you're happy. The researchers asked subjects to indicate what they physically felt while experiencing certain emotions.
The researchers asked both Finnish, Swedish and Taiwanese subjects to draw a body picture of what they felt with certain emotions. Europeans and Taiwanese indicated that they felt the same portions of the body with the same emotions, so this phenomenon seems biologically rather than culturally determined.

No one wants to be slaving over the hot stove in Summer time. Not only does this make you hot and sweaty, but it adds more heat to the internal temperature of your home and is hard to get rid of.
My method for dealing with lunches and dinners in the hottest period of the year is to cook everything on the coolest day before a hot period. I cook meat, fish, eggs, and base ingredients such as pasta, noodles, rice and potatoes. During the week I will then combine these ingredients with fresh uncooked and cooked vegetables to make salads, noodle dishes etc. As ever, planning is important. Draw up a rough plan of the week, and the combination of things you plan to use from your prepared ingredients.
1. Plan your Make Ahead Salad MenuPlanning your meals ahead means you’ll be able to easily prepare everything you need on your one cooking day, and it also eliminates wastage and excessive spending on unnecessary ingredients. But it doesn’t have to be a hard and fast menu; these ingredients are easy to mix and match and flavours are changed depending on the dressing, sauces, herbs and spices that you choose to add. I also like to do this because on hot days, my brain is melting and I have a lot of trouble thinking recipes through. So if I’ve already helped myself by planning ahead, half the job is done!
