Anyone tried it? It seems to be popular in Asia for it purported whitening capabilities, and is damn cheap! Just bought a package last night for about US $1.50 . My skin felt ultra smooth and almost too clean after; I feel like there must be... (more)

I know this sounds a bit bland, but I walk places a whole lot more than I used to. Sure, it helps that my job is only a mile away from home. So there and back is a good daily 2 miles. And with my new Christmas present, I believe I'll be doing a... (more)

Since lately I haven't been able to hit the gym as much as i would like to, I was wondering if there were any inexpensive heavy lifting ideas I could do at home. I have sets of 3, 5, and 8 lb Barbie-bells but those don't cut the mustard. What do... (more)

You can pick up a kettlebell pretty cheap (25lb is $35 at walmart), or even just a weight lifting plate (25lb is $29 at walmart). (I've been thinking of getting a plate myself, just to slide under the couch and have handy.) Kettlebell you can do... (more)

If you're tight on space or don't have arable land, check out Window Farming. You probably wouldn't be able to grow big stuff like squash and cauliflower, but herbs, leafy greens, tomatoes and berries etc for sure! (more)

The companies that sell the grains… and the people throughout history who have made kefir must have to make the grains without existing grains so how do you make kefir grains at home?

Hey all, In my last run to the store, I bought a tiny bag of Deep River Rosemary & Olive Oil chips, an old favorite. Though they were pretty cheap, I think I'd have more fun making my own. Especially since I was going to make kale chips soon... (more)

You could try your local vintage store. You aren't supporting inhumane farms if the animal was killed in the 50s and it's a great testament to just how long this stuff lasts. Another option is to get to know a hunter (many don't know what to do... (more)

Lately I’ve become enamored with the idea of building one of these tiny homes. Thoughts, ideas, live in one now?

Are there people who dont like to spent time in fitness or crossfit studios. Rather doing natural excercise like working hard or moving a lot. Natural training. Is it clear?

I know someone mentioned that HyperLipid has the procedure but I couldn't find it so if anyone has made it's own cream, do share. Also what percentage would that cream be ?

We own cattle and we get raw milk every day. My dad threatens to stroke and die when I tell him not to boil it, though. I was wondering if you can make cream out of that? If I let it sit, it gets this thick skin on top which is pretty much butter.... (more)
