24 exotic ways to eat a hot dog Today we are celebrating our freedom, and as we know, with freedom comes options, with options comes choices, and with choices comes serious indigestion. Keeping that in mind, here are 24 ways to eat America’s favorite 4th of July snack—one for each hour of the day. 1. On a pizza ( The Snack Pot ) 2. "One Good Thing" by Jillee: Homemade "Clorox" Wipes Today, my journey to find cheaper, natural, and BETTERalternatives to the cleaning supplies I use in my home presented me with a showdown with what has been, up until now, one of my best cleaning allies…Clorox Wipes. There are a lot of reasons why I liked these little gems. The main reason being that I like being able to grab a cleaning wipe whenever I need one. I don’t want to have to fill a sink or a bucket with water and add cleaning solution to it, and I’m not crazy about spray cleaners. I also have issues with rinsing, dipping and wringing out the same rag over and over (often in the same dirty water) until you are done. (I have the same issue with mopping the floor….but that’s a pet peeve for another day.)
This is Your Brain on Food Credit: Flickr user Toby___ Humans are carbon-bond consumers. Carbon bonds come into the front end of your feeding tubes in the form of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins; you then break those chemical bonds to extract energy, and excrete the residue as carbon dioxide, water vapor and various solid waste. Sometimes, however, some of these chemicals can make their way from your digestive system and into your brain; the consequences can be subtle or profound. The distinction between what is considered a food (something that your body wants or needs in order to function optimally) or a drug (something that your brain wants or needs in order to function optimally) is becoming increasingly difficult to define.
Global Food Disparity: A Photo Diary In an increasingly globalized world, it’s still sometimes shocking to see just how disparate our lives are compared with other human beings around the world. A book of photographs by Peter Menzel called "Hungry Planet: What the World Eats" ("©Peter Menzel www.menzelphoto.com. Ten Speed Press, published in 2005) makes a relevant point with great irony: at a time when hundreds of millions of people don't have enough to eat, hundreds of millions more are eating too much and are overweight or obese. In observing what six billion eat for dinner the authors note, "Today, more people are overweight than underweight." Tips and Tricks- Part 2! I'm overwhelmed by all of your kind words and emails asking for more tips and ideas, and for all of the wonderful tips you have left for me. I'm going to try and make it a semi-regular thing here at In This Crazy Life; because lets face it we can all use a little help sometimes!! I also had lots of questions asking if you could Pin this/feature this/share this- and the answer is of course you can! The more help I can be, the better!! If you left a tip for me, but left it anonymously, then I cant give you credit- but if your name was there Ill certainly let the world know it was from you. If it came from another source, click the picture and it will take you there!

I told you guys that I'm wasting a lot of time nowadays looking at pretty pictures and interesting ideas on Pinterest.I already have a bunch of different boards for all kinds of stuff - be it food or interior design.
