Let’s Take a Look at Distilled and Other types of Water

2 Comments

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:

Distilled Water

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.

Tap Water

This is water that comes straight from the faucet.  It may usually have been disinfected with chlorine and sediments removed.

Filtered Water

Filtered water is tap water that has been strained through filters to remove chlorine and other bacteria based on targeted chemicals.

Purified Water

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.

Spring Water

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.

Do You Think It Matters When You Eat Fruit?

Comments are closed.

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

Let’s Talk About Salt

Comments are closed.

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
