Ser verde no solo te ayuda a ahorrar combustible en tu vehículo, también a quitar olores, mantenerlo limpio y oliendo fresco.Yo antes utilizaba de esos aparatos que pones en el carro y dan olor. Al igual que los sprays de olores , estos son dañinos para la salud por ser tener muchos químicos.

Me di cuenta que cada vez que prendía el aire acondicionado y se activaba el olor, estornudaba varias veces. En mi búsqueda por eliminar las alergias, busqué una manera mas “green” o sana de que mi carro siempre huela bien , sin dañar mi salud.

¿Cuánto tiempo pasas en tu carro? 

Este espacio es tan importante como tu oficina, tu cuarto o cualquier espacio donde pases mas de dos horas al día. Vamos a mantener el carro limpio y por supuesto en armonía para que nuestra salud no se afecte.

5 Tips para quitar olores en el carro

  1. Quita los asientos y tapetes, esto si realmente quieres hacer una buena limpieza, o puedes obviar este paso pero lo recomendable es hacerlo.
  2. Aspira y quita todo el polvo o tierra acumulada que pueda tener el vehículo. Lava todo adentro tu auto sin mojar los controles.
  3. Coloca pequeños trozos de carbón en la cajuela. Estos absorben la humedad.
  4. Coloca granos de café en la cajuela o debajo de los asientos. A mi también me ha funcionado, colocar unas cuentas gotas de aceite esencial en bolsitas de té.
  5. Espolvorear bicarbonato de sodio sobre las alfombras y los asientos después de aspirarlos. También puedes agregar unas gotas de aceite esencial de limón, o el que más te guste para que el carro tenga un olor agradable sin los químicos comunes de los sprays o ambientadores.

Sigue estos consejos y verás como tu carro pasa de gastar dinero en químicos que dan olor, a tener un olor más agradable y que no es dañino para ti.

Diarrhea is the frequent bowel movements of watery and loose stools. The bowel, also called feces, are deposits of the body passing through the rectum and anus.

Feces containing the remaining material after the digestive system absorbs nutrients and fluids from what you eat and drink. If the body doesn’t absorb liquids, or if your digestive system produces extra fluids, stools will be watery and liquid. Watery stools contain more water, salts and minerals and are heavier than solid stool.

Diarrhea of short duration is called acute diarrhea. Acute diarrhea is a common problem and usually lasts for 1-2 days but may last longer. Diarrhea that lasts at least four weeks is called chronic diarrhea. Symptoms of chronic diarrhea may be continuous or may come and go.

Here I’ll give 6 excelent teas for diarrhea that will definitely bring some relief:teas for diarrhea

1. Black tea with sugar: not only keeps the body hydrated, but contains tannins that reduce intestinal inflammation.

2. Mint tea: it’s good for an astringent effect.

3. Fennel tea: to soothe and heal the digestive tract.

4. Dry blueberries tea: In a cup of boiling water put a teaspoon of dried blueberries and drink the infusion.

5. Cinnamon tea: Drink a cup of cinnamon tea as needed. In a cup of boiling water add one teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Let it stand for 15 minutes and strain using a napkin.

6. Orange peel tea: Strip 1 organic orange and chop the peel into pieces. Pour it into a pint of boiling water. Cover and let it cool down. Sweeten with sugar or honey and drink.

Esto me lo manda mi mamá, con esta nota:

“Laura, Ahí Te Va Una Receta China Que Mi Mami Tomó Toda Su Vida, La Cual Duró Hasta Los 93 Años.  

I Love Baby,

Your Mom.”

Esta bebida milagrosa ha existido desde hace mucho tiempo ya que originalmente los médicos naturistas de China la recomendaban a los enfermos.

La conocemos gracias al Sr. Seto, quien no es una celebridad pública; es un hombre normal como usted y yo, que comprobó los resultados de ella puesto que se curó de su enfermedad.

El Sr. Seto, que tenia cáncer de pulmón, comenta que esta bebida se la recomendó a él un famoso herbolario de China. Él la tomó diligentemente durante 3 meses y ahora su salud se restablece asombrosamente, tanto es así, que por eso quiso hacerlo público para dar a conocer las maravillas de una alimentación sana.

Es un alimento al alcance de todos con un costo ínfimo (pequeñísimo). Y es por eso que el Sr. Seto quiere llamar la atención de quienes padecen algún tipo de cáncer o cualquier otra enfermedad, con esta bebida “milagrosa“;  ( que protege el cuerpo del Cáncer y otras enfermedades) para que se sanen.

Esta bebida milagrosa, según él “frena”el desarrollo de las células cancerígenas.

¿De qué esta hecha?

La fórmula es muy simple, solamente necesitas:

  • 1 Remolacha
  • 2 zanahorias
  • 1 manzana

 

Instrucciones

Lave todo lo anterior, haga el corte con la piel, en pequeños trozos pequeños, póngalos en la licuadora, mezcle y de inmediato beba el jugo. (O bien ponga los ingredientes en el extractor).

As we enjoy a good meal we always think about wine, we even encourage you to get the most suitable to accompany any special meal. Red meats are combined with red wine and fish with white wine. Today I wanna talk about the red wine benefits from the nutritional point of view.

At first glance we found that white wine could be considered lower in calories and alcohol than red, but not much, then why talk about the wine benefits with much emphasis? It turns out that this variety offers higher levels of magnesium, potassium, protein and polyphenols, flavonoids transported latter leading health benefits as antioxidants, protecting the heart and being a potent anti-inflammatory and anticancer.

A daily glass for women and two for men, can function as an excellent protector of health.


Al momento de disfrutar una buena mesa siempre pensamos en vinos, incluso nos animamos a conseguir el más adecuado para acompañar alguna comida en especial.

Las carnes rojas se combinan con vino tinto y los pescados con vino blanco, pero desde el punto de vista nutricional ¿qué nos aporta cada uno?

A primera vista encontramos que el vino blanco podría considerarse más bajo en calorías y en alcohol que el tinto -aunque no mucho-, entonces ¿por qué se habla de los beneficios del vino tinto con tanto hincapié? Resulta que esta variedad ofrece mayores niveles en magnesio, potasio, proteínas y polifenoles, estos últimos transportan flavonoides que llevan beneficios a la salud como antioxidantes, protegiendo al corazón y siendo un potente antiinflamatorio y anticancerígeno.

Una copia diaria para las mujeres y dos para los hombre, puede funcionar como un excelente protector de la salud.

Hay tantos rumores e ideas erróneas rondando por ahí acerca del sexo… Los rumores y mitos sobre el sexo son un arma de doble filo: si se repiten con regularidad, terminan convirtiéndose en creencias populares que damos como ciertas y pocas veces nos atrevemos a cuestionar. Los prejuicios que existen sobre el sexo son en su gran mayoría percepciones machistas que impiden que disfrutes tu sexualidad de manera plena.

Te presento los 3 mitos sobre el sexo más comunes:

La masturbación produce infertilidad, disfunciones sexuales, ceguera y pérdida de memoria

En algún momento, hace más de 100 años, hasta los médicos creían que esto era cierto, pero la realidad es que ninguna de estas consecuencias son posibles. En el caso específico de la infertilidad, se ha llegado a creer que los hombres tienen una determinada cantidad de semen que producien a lo largo de la vida -7 litros-, y que deben cuidar. Sin embargo, en la medida en que eyaculan, el semen se va reponiendo y de hecho un hombre promedio puede eyacular hasta diez o más veces ese volumen. En resumen, si tienes problemas de memoria es por otro motivo.

A mayor frecuencia, mayor placer

Para algunas personas el sexo implica cantidad y no calidad. No tiene sentido preferir el sexo frecuente con parejas esporádicas a disfrutar del sexo placentero con una pareja estable. Esto en el caso de quienes prefieren aventuras de una sola noche.

Cuando se multiplica el número de parejas, también se multiplican los riesgos de contagiarse de VIH u otras enfermedades de transmisión sexual prácticamente endémicas; y eso son ganas de buscarse problemas. El sexo seguro entre dos personas no existe, sólo podemos aspirar a un sexo más seguro.

El exceso de actividad sexual agranda la vagina

No es el exceso de actividad sexual lo que produce agrandamiento o ensanchamiento de la vagina, sino que situaciones como por ejemplo los partos pueden disminuir la tonicidad de los músculos que rodean la entrada de la vagina o producir desgarros en los mismos.

¿Qué otros mitos sexuales conoces o incluso has creído en algún momento?

mitos sobre el sexo


3 False Myths About Sex

There are so many rumors and misconceptions out there about sex … The rumors and myths are a double-edged sword: if repeated regularly, they end up becoming popular beliefs that we settle as true and rarely dare to question. The prejudices about sex are overwhelmingly sexist perceptions that does not allow you to enjoy your sexuality.

These are the 3 most common sex myths:

Masturbation leads to infertility, sexual dysfunction, blindness and memory loss

 At some point, more than 100 years ago, doctors believed that this was true, but the reality is that none of these consequences are possible. In the specific case of infertility: people believed that man have a certain amount of semen they produce along -7 liters-life, and they should take care of that. However, every time they ejaculate, semen is refilled, and actually an average man can ejaculate up to ten or more times that volume. So, if you have memory problems is for another reason.

More frequency: More pleasure

For some people sex involves quantity and not quality. It’s nonsense to prefer frequent sex with casual partners than to enjoy pleasurable sex with a steady partner. This in the case of those who prefer one-night adventures.

When you multiply the number of partners, also multiply the risk of getting AIDS or other sexually transmitted diseases virtually endemic, and that is asking for trouble. Safe sex between two people does not exist; we can only aspire to safer sex.

Excessive sexual activity enlarges the vagina

Excessive sexual activity does not enlarge the vagina, but situations such as deliveries can decrease the tone of the muscles surrounding the entrance to the vagina or produce tears in it.

What other myths about sex do you know, or have you believed in?

La primera vez que probé unos cupcakes red velvet me parecieron… horribles. Eran una torta roja que para mi no tenía sentido. Después fui  a una fiesta y probé unos hechos con ingredientes naturales. WOW. Me quedé en shock.

Hoy la quiero compartir contigo esta receta de Postre de San Valentín para compartir con esa personita especial

Ingredientes

– ¾ taza de remolachas recién hechas puré (se hierven hasta que estén tiernas, luego se hacen puré)
– ⅓ de taza de aceite de coco
– 1 ¼ taza de azúcar
– 1 ½ cucharadita de extracto de vainilla
– 1 ¼ taza de harina
– ¼ cucharadita de sal
– 1 ½ cucharada de polvo de cacao natural
– 1 ½ cucharadita de polvo para hornear
– 1 taza de leche de almendras

Para el glaseado:

– ¼ taza de sustituto de la mantequilla
– 1 bloque de queso crema (250 g) – usar crema de queso vegano para mantener vegana la receta
– 1 a 1 ½ tazas de azúcar en polvo
– Un chorrito de extracto de vainilla

Instrucciones

Postre de San Valentín– Precaliente el horno a 350F.

– Mezclar el puré de remolacha y aceite hasta que se incorpore.

– Añadir el azúcar, el extracto de vainilla.

– En un bol, tamizar la harina, el cacao en polvo , la sal y el polvo de hornear .

– Añada la mezcla de harina y la leche hasta que se incorpore en la masa .

– Divide entre moldes de cupcake, llenándolos al ¾ de su capacidad, y hornear durante 15-20 minutos (para mini bizcochos) y 20 a 25 minutos (para cupcakes de tamaño regular) hasta que al introducir en el medio un probador de pastel o un palillo, éste salga limpio.

Para hacer el glaseado de queso crema, batir todos los ingredientes (agregue el azúcar en polvo ½ taza a la vez hasta que alcance la consistencia deseada). Unta en los cupcakes si lo deseas. La remolacha puede decolorar el glaseado si se deja por mucho tiempo, así que si quieres preparar esto con tiempo, no hacerlo con más de 24 horas de anticipación .

Para finalizar este Postre de San Valentín, manten los cupcakes en la nevera y dejar reposar a temperatura ambiente por lo menos 30 minutos antes de servir .


Love Cupcakes for Valentine´s Day

The first time I tried some sort of red velvet cupcakes they seem to like… awful. They were made out of a reddish cake that didn’t  make any sense to me. Then I went to a party and tried some made with natural ingredients and WOW, I was in shock.

So for this Valentine’s I remembered that famous recipe and today I want to share it with you so you can enjoy them with your loved on!

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup freshly puréed beets (boiled until tender, then puréed)
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil
  • 1¼ cup sugar
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1¼ cup flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1½ tbsp natural cocoa powder
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup almond milk
For the icing
  • ¼ cup butter substitute
  • 1 block cream cheese (250g) – use vegan cream cheese to keep vegan
  • 1 to 1½ cups icing sugar
  • a splash of vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Mix the beet purée and oil until incorporated.
  3. Add sugar, vanilla extract.
  4. In a bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder.
  5. Alternate adding the flour mixture and milk until incorporated into the batter.
  6. Divide among cupcake liners, filling them ¾ full, and bake for 15-20 minutes (for mini cupcakes) and 20-25 minutes (for regular sized cupcakes) until a cake tester or toothpick comes out clean when poked in the middle.
  7. To make the cream cheese icing, whip together all ingredients (add the icing sugar ½ cup at a time until it reaches your desired consistency)
  8. Pipe onto cupcakes as desired. The beetroot may discolour the frosting if left for too long, so if you are piping this ahead of time, do not do so more than 24 hours ahead of time.
  9. Keep the cupcakes in the fridge and let sit at room temp at least 30 minutes before serving.

Ya se acerca el día del amor, y no quisiera que todo se volviera una rutina o peor aún, que entre tu y tu pareja, no pasara nada. ¿Vas a pasar el día de los enamorados con tu pareja? Prueba estas ideas sensuales para el día del amor:

Intenta una nueva ubicación

¿Sexo en el Día de San Valentín? Wow, qué original.

La solución no implica la modificación del acto, sino que implica la modificación de la ubicación. Si eres el tipo de persona que siempre va a lo seguro, entonces, tira a su pareja sobre la mesa del comedor en un momento de pasión salte fuera de lugar y es muy probable que eso los encienda. O intenta algo un poco menos inesperado como las escaleras.

Véndale los ojos

Este día del amor te recomiendo que vendes en los ojos de tu pareja, presentándole  diferentes aromas, jugando a adivinar qué olor es. Haz uno de esos perfumes un regalo de verdad. Junto con el perfume, hazle oler cosas como incienso, flores, aceites, etc…

Compra ropa interior

Qué original ¿verdad? Bueno, adivinen qué, los hombres se vuelven locos por esto, ellos son muy visuales y si compras algo negro, rojo o su color favorito y  transparente, iluminando solo con algunas velas y le das una sorpresa después de un largo día de trabajo, vamos a decir que él no va a estar cansado ya.

Si eres hombre, sé que la mayoría de ustedes tienen dificultades para comprar ropa interior su amada, por lo que no hacen. Pero esforzarte más y compra algo que va a hacer que se sienta más sexy y se que este día del amor tu lo disfrutarás también.

Sigue estos consejos y verás que este día del amor no será igual.

You might find that escaping into your home is a great way to avoid unwanted pollutants and air contamination, but did you know that your house is vulnerable to air impurities, too?

From dust mites and dander to chipped paints and unvented stoves, there’s no shortage of sources that could be causing indoor air pollution within your very own home.

Don’t run outside to get a breath of fresh air just yet. Your home is your safe haven, which means every aspect should enhanced your overall sense of wellbeing — air quality included. Are you wondering how you can bring the freshness of the air from the outdoors and into your home? Then be sure to follow these ten simple ways that’ll have you breathing freshness with ease.

1. Keep Your Shoes Outside

Did you know that shoes can contain an average of 421,000 units of bacteria — just on the outside of the sole alone? Now imagine bringing all of that bacteria into your home with every step you take.

Remember to take your shoes off before you enter your home in order to prevent outside contaminants from coming inside. If you stepped on particularly dirty surfaces throughout the day, including wet grounds or muddy fields, be sure to clean off you’re the exterior of your shoes regularly as well.

2. Diffuse Air-Enriching Oils

Imagine cleaning your home´s air in while also adding an aromatic smell or various scents to your home. Well now, you can!

Oil diffusers are the perfect home accessory for any individual seeking a way to enhance their indoor air quality while adding a few desirable aromas to each room in the process. Oils such as tea tree, eucalyptus, and lemongrass are effective at reducing airborne bacteria and viruses that may be apparent within your home’s air.

Simply add a few drops to your diffuser and sit back and relax as your trusted scents take care of the rest.

hme´s air windows3. Break Open the Windows

Even closed building needs ventilation every now and again — homes and apartments included. If you find yourself suffering through stuffy conditions or lacking a sense of freshness in your surroundings, the solution may just be as simple as cracking the windows and letting a breeze of fresh air inside.

Did you know that there are many indoor objects and substances linked to asthma and difficult breathing conditions? From cleaning products to pesticides, there are various hazardous fumes that may just be lurking within the indoors. Be sure to stimulate ventilation by cracking your windows open at least once each day.

4. Vacuum, Vacuum, Vacuum!

Even if you take your shoes off at the front door and go out of your way to keep your prized possessions off of the floor, no carpet is exempt from collecting dust and mold. Unlike other surfaces on your home, your carpet can experience the most wear and contamination throughout the day due to constant walking and use.

Did you know that certain health problems can be avoided just by maintaining a fresh and clean carpet? Find a way to incorporate vacuuming into your daily routine to ensure allergens such as dust and pollen don’t stay behind — even hidden with your carpet’s comfy fibers.

5. Go Green With Cleaners

You might think that cleaning can help improve the level of air quality in your home, but using the wrong cleaning materials may actually do you more harm than good. If your cleaners use toxic chemicals that are harmful to breath in and affect the freshness of your home´s air, consider making a natural cleaning alternative instead.

Try making your own cleaners with non-toxic chemicals such as vinegar and baking soda. Research how to make natural cleaners with green-friendly products you can safely use within your home, too. Your home will end up spotless and you won’t have to unleash bad smelling or poisonous chemicals into your home´s air in the process.

6. Replace Nature-Inspired Décor With Real Plants

While they may be easy to maintain, faux plants are no match for the real deal. Add a sense of décor to your home with an added aesthetic that improves your air quality in the process by placing live houseplants in various rooms.

If you’re worried about finding the time to maintain your plants with the tender, love, and care that they desire, opt for a Snake Plant to enhance your home.

Snake Plants are not only the easy-choice for homeowners due to their low maintenance levels, but they also do wonders when it comes to filtering the air in your home. You can add a sense of attractive décor to your home and sit back and relax with a breath of fresh air — provided by none other than your Snake Plant, of course.

7.  Keep Mold at Bay
Mold — we’ve all seen it and grudgingly put on our gloves to deal with it before. But while cleaning up mold may not make your list of favorite weekday activities, maintain a clean and refreshing environment depends on it.

The manifestation of mold is closely linked to upper respiratory tract issues and can cause higher levels of discomfort for individuals with asthma or allergies. Not only is it bad to look at, but it evidently causes great harm to your overall sense of wellbeing, too.

Prevent mold from forming in your home by investing in a dehumidifier that regulates the level of moisture in your home´s air. Remember to fix any leaks immediately to prevent water from seeping into your rooms, too.

8. Invest in an Air Purifier

If you or somebody in your home suffers from asthma or allergies, investing in an air purifier can prove to be a life safer. Whether you’re sick of constantly sneezing or watery eyes obstructing your view throughout the day, air cleaners help make life a little more easy so that you can enjoy your time spent indoors as well.

So how exactly does an air purifier help make your air cleaner? Regular air containing contaminants and impurities flow through filters that trap and catch small particles that may be polluting your air so that you can take a breath of fresh air even from the comforts of your own home.

9. Use Fans to Increase Circulation

It’s nice to retreat to your home on a hot summer day and simply turn on the air conditioner as you cool up inside. You may not want to open your windows while letting the warmth inside, but you need a way to circulate the air inside, too. That’s where fans come into play.

Try researching the best fans for your own individual scenario — whether you need a source of cooling and ventilation for your small studio space or larger master bedroom. You can enjoy the coolness inside without suffering from stuffy conditions in the process.

Sometimes we feel like our hair is lacking shine and life. We try many highstreet products in hopes of having just a slight improvement… which never lasts for too long because the chemicals end up producing a negative effect on our hair.

I’m not pretending to re-invent warm water, but reassure an old method that I have no doubt of its success. I’m talking about an avocado mask! A delicacy not only for your palate but for the whole body.

The avocado originated in Mexico, where it seems that was cultivated as early as 1500 BC, and also in Peru seeds have been found in Inca tombs (750 BC). When the Spaniards came to America, they called it “pear of the Indies” for its appearance. It spread in America (Guatemala, Peru, Venezuela) and since the discovery of America by other warm countries. In Spain it’s grown in Andalucia and the Canary Islands.

And after that cultural tour, I share with you this recipe for an avocado mask:

  • Beat with mixer or blender half of a ripe avocado, a tablespoon of olive oil and an egg yolk.
  • Apply it on the hair from root to tip and leave it on for 30 minutes minimum on dry hair.
  • If your hair is very oily, spread the cream on the tips and then rinse with water.

You can repeat this natural avocado mask once a week and will starting seeing the changes immediately. Your hair will feel soft and bouncy.
