What happens to sugar after it is baked? Does Glucose, Fructose, Sucrose have the same chemical properties after baking or do they become similar at the end? More theory than practice as I don't bake much anymore.

I have switched my diet to be more paleo over the past 3 weeks. Since my switch I have noticed when I would consume processed foods when I cheated, I could taste chemicals. What is the cause of that? About the only thing I really crave now... (more)

So, most of us have the perspective of Paleo being about food - eating organic, free-range, grass-fed, etc. Another perspective is eschewing chemicals we ingest or are subjected to or otherwise are harmful environmentally - laundry detergent,... (more)

I do all my house-cleaning with baking soda and vinegar. I buy 'eco' dish-soap and laundry soap. I do have bottle of bleach somewhere.. it doesn't really get used for anything. I barely ever use a dryer sheet. Only if I think it's stuff that will... (more)
