I was looking up information on WebMD recently about the different types of water. Certain types of equipment mention using distilled water specifically. I was surprised at the information I found and thought it would be interesting to share. Summarily it stated that:
It’s steam from boiling water that has been cooled and returned to the liquid state. Salt, minerals and other organic materials have been removed from the boiling process.
This is water that comes straight from the faucet. It may usually have been disinfected with chlorine and sediments removed.
Filtered water is tap water that has been strained through filters to remove chlorine and other bacteria based on targeted chemicals.
This is water that is free of microbes and chemicals through the process of reverse osmosis. This is achieved by forcing water through a membrane to get rid of chemicals, minerals and microbes. Other methods of purifying water is described in the WebMD article.
Though not specifically discussed in the initial article that the other types of water were mentioned in, Spring Water should definitely be mentioned in this conversation. Spring Water is also known as Mineral Water…although mineral water can also be made artificially by adding salts and other items back to distilled water. This water comes from natural springs where moving underground water is used without processing.
Last year, I tried an experiment to see how hard it would be to grow my own plants and food. I got some supplies from Amazon… (growing medium, jar cups, and rocks) and other supplies locally… (soil, pots, etc.). It wasn’t as hard as I anticipated to start the project—but the effort came in being consistent and knowing what to do as the plants began to grow. If you travel or are out of the house a lot, and won’t have anyone to look after the plants to water or care for them, you may want to have them outside, where they can work with nature to fend for themselves.
You don’t have to “watch” the plants as much as having to “monitor” them. I chose not to initially plant anything directly in the ground because I wanted to see how hard it was to have a portable garden. Pots and planters are easy to move around and can either be grouped together or placed in certain areas according to the amount of sunlight needed.
Growing your own fruits and veggies can really be a confidence booster as well as help save on your food bill. I encourage you to explore this as a hobby and then maybe become a serious gardener. Things are changing in the world and having additional survival skills is a game changer.
As you may know, I usually don’t go into depth on my posts, but I do try to provide links or resources for you to do your own follow up or research. So, check the link below and happy planting!
If you’ve started adding more fruit to your diet and meals, you might have the same questions I had. “Do you think it matters when you eat fruit?” Or, “Do you eat the fruit before, during, or after the meal?”
I’ve heard a variety of things on the topic so, I put the question to Google as a search. (You can see the search link below.) Honestly, I think I agree more with my sister on this when she says she doesn’t think it matters. But, there is a part of me that still thinks it depends Read More
I am. Twenty-Twenty-One so far, has been a year of moving forward. Trump lost. Progressives have gained some ground within and without the Democratic Party. And we continue trying to make things better.
I must admit though, I am absolutely ready for Progressives to be a majority in the House and Senate in 2022. I truly believe that it is possible. Personally speaking, I am tired of both Democrats and Republicans. I want people who are willing and ready to do big things for the American people, and not so much for corporations– because Read More
The other day, I was sitting at the table and was trying to decide which salt to use; Table Salt or Sea Salt. My inner self quietly asked, “why do you need to add extra salt at all?” And I replied: Because I want it!! I love that taste and flavor! So, I reached over and added a “little” of each. 😳 Yep, I did that. Now, I’m writing about why–amongst other things.
I usually reach for the salt shaker because of habit. In my younger years, when I exercised a lot, or did a lot of manual work, it wasn’t an issue because I got a chance to sweat a lot. Which, I think that might be the case for many people. But now, I have a need to create a new habit. Paying more attention to what and how I eat.
I’ve actually been moving in that direction for quite a while …since my days in the military. But, Read More
