But if we deprive ourself of a sleep for seven days, we won’t be able to function at all...If we try to guess which activity is so important for us that we devote almost one-third of our time for it, probably the first things that come to our mind are...

Kitchen secrets/Cooking tips

Kids safety in kitchen

•Always walk in the kitchen and work slowly and carefully. •Wear shoes that cover your whole foot. Wear clothes that cover most of you. Long, baggy clothes, however, can catch on fire. •Wear an apron. •Keep your hair out of the way, tied back or in a hat. •Use equipment only if you know exactly how to use it and you have permission from an adult. •Always use pot holders, towels or oven mitts when using the oven or handling something hot, making sure the pot holders, etc. are not wet (which will bring the heat right to your skin). •If a fire starts, smother it with a pan lid or by pouring baking soda on it. Using water on an oil fire will only make it worse. •Keep pan handles turned away from the edge of the stove or table. Only fill pans half to three-quarters full so you can safely move them. •Always pick up a knife by its handle and never try to catch a falling knife. •Cut away from your hands and body and away from anyone near you, paying close attention to what you are doing and always using a cutting board. •Put dirty knives on the counter or drain board, never in a sink full of water. •When measuring, put the cup on something flat and stoop down to see if it is level, tapping the cup bottom on the flat surface to settle the ingredients.

Green Eating
Why to shift from popular American diet to vegan eating?

Sugar-Most people have heard that Americans consume too much sugar. Relying on other sweeteners that are not synthetic processed, or derived from animal products is a healthier way to eat. Many vegans do not eat processed sugar due to the fact that most of the cane sugar is refined through activated charcoal, most of which comes from animal bones.
