Transform Your Health with Activated Charcoal

Have you ever wondered what activated charcoal is or how you can transform your health using it?  Activated charcoal, or “activated carbon,” is a form of carbon.  It’s an odorless and tasteless powder that is nontoxic to the body and the environment.  It’s been carefully processed to have very small pores that help engage in chemical reactions.  But it also helps to increase its absorption and expelling of elements, hence the name “active.” Activated charcoal can be made from coconut shells, peat, wood, coal or petroleum.  When heated with...

Sweet Potato and Chicken Patties

Are you tired of purchasing meatless veggie and grain patties only to heat them up and have them taste like cardboard?  This Sweet Potato Chicken Patty recipe has been adapted from a chicken finger recipe my friend gave me.  She was making these for her toddler, who loves them. This recipe is made with chicken.  The reason why I really like it is because I often want an alternative, quick meal and I don’t always want a mouth full of chicken.  In fact, I don’t really care if chicken is part of the recipe, as long as it’s...

The Real Motivations Behind GMO’s

GMO’s, or genetically modified organisms, are becoming a real problem in the U.S. and are contributing to a number of illnesses and deaths.  Even though they are a known health concern, why does the U.S. continue to modify our food today?  These are questions that have been asked for years, with few answers.
