Food removed from a package, and some planted in dirt and grows, should be prepared and eaten more often from the package.

An example: beans (live food).

I noticed that after I cook my favorite food combination, lentils, black rice, and quinoa; something odd is visible when I remove the cover from the pot. Many of the quinoa grains would sprout a tail, but how can that be? Growing a tail should only occur when seeds are in an environment that is ideal for growing, with the right temperature and moisture being a big part of it.

I read many times that heating plants-based foods above 115 degrees Fahrenheit would destroy many of their nutrients, and therefore many of us use dehydrators. Water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit, the same temperature I cook the quinoa at for 25 to 30 minutes.  So why are they more nutritious when cooked? I can only conclude that the combination of lentils and quinoa have a chemical reaction that caused the sprouting to occur. I cooked quinoa by itself previously and did not see any sprouting.

I can only conclude that cooking quinoa with a combination of lentils makes it more nutritious, by creating an environment that it is comfortable enough to start sprouting.

I am driving home at the end of my work day and I ‘m sweating profusely again like I did the day before. Why am I sweating so much? It is one of the ways to detox the body. I made a video on 5 WAYS TO DETOX THE BODY  Exercising or being out in the hot sun is an excellent way to detox through sweating, but is there an easier and more convenient way to sweat?

Sweating allows toxins to leave our bodies that won’t through other means of detoxification.  Such as microscopic plastics particles in the water we drink or the food we eat. In my car, I can create an environment that will allow me to sweat, while maintaining my daily schedule.

By adjusting the heater in my car and opening the windows slightly to allowing fresh air in, I can create the perfect condition to sweat and detox. And I go straight home and only exit my car when I ‘m there. This is because the sweat must have somewhere to go and that will be my pants and shirt. The wet stains in them would cause concern walking into a store.

I always hydrate before using my car as a sauna and hydrating again as soon as I get home. It is amazing how much sweat can be lost through this method. I jumped on the scale after my most recent session and I was two pounds lighter and gained it back after eating dinner.

Creating an environment that allows toxins to be eliminated with very little effort, the Car Sauna works and is perfect for me.
