Whale Stranding

Every year up to 2,000 whales beach themselves, killing themselves in most cases. Beached whales often die due to dehydration, the body collapsing under its own weight, or drowning when high tide covers the blowhole. It is also known that they have been committing this strange way of “suicide” for at least thousands of years. There have been numerous theories about why they do it but none of them has been conclusive enough so far. (Source)

This may sound weird, but my face will get a little shiny where my skin is dry and flaky. Is that just my foundation, or my actual skin being oily?

That is probably dehydrated skin! Yet skin can become dry when using products that aren’t the best for your skin type, ex: oily skin using too stripping products. 

Here is my dry vs dehydrated skin post:

i have never drunk so much lucozade in my life- yesterday i was throwing up water and anything else i tried to drink and now i feel so gross and dehydrated. i’m writing my last two uni essays ever, ranting about the government but also just feelin’ so burnt out. today is weird i want to just lie in my bed with my feet up the wall listening to every song i’ve ever loved in the past three years.

You Fell Head Over Heels For Me.

Anon requested: 36- “You fainted…straight into my arms. You know if you wanted my attention, you didn’t have to go to such extremes.”

You and Sam had been out in the woods for about 3 days. It was all going fine until you and Sam were split apart from Dean. Hunting a Windigo wasn’t one of the most pleasant hunts to do, especially dehydrated and hungry.

“Hey, Y/N, you alright?” Sam turned back to see you leant against a tree.

“Yeah, I’m fine” you lied, you pulled yourself back off the tree and carried on walking. You were hungry, you were extremely thirsty and you had a gash on  the back of your head from where the Windigo flung you, only thing is Sam didn’t know about your head.

“It’s getting to midday so at least we know it’s about 12, yeah?” Sam questioned looking back to you. “Y/N?”

You lifted your head with all the strength you had and looked at him.

“Yeah” you smiled “It’s midday”. He walked over to you, you had beads of sweat on your brow, you were white as a sheet and worst of all the gash on your head began to bleed again. You tried to focus on Sam and hold on to another tree but, the world was spinning, your hearing was disorientated and then nothing.

“Do you think she’s okay?”

“I don’t know, she has a pretty bad cut on her head! Why didn’t you at least try and sort it?”

“Well, I didn’t know did I! I asked if she was okay, she said yes. I didn’t want to go over and have to search her for cut if she’s okay!”

You could hear two people talking, it sounded like they were whispering but it was echoing, or was it just your hearing returning? You didn’t know. All you knew is that you were cold and felt sick. Opening your eyes you had to adjust to the dim lit room, you sat up and looked over at the boys.

“Ah, finally she’s awake! Thought we were going to have to throw ice water over you” Dean laughed. All you had took in was him saying water.

“Water? What water?” you questioned

“I’ll go get you some, sleeping beauty” Dean winked, walking out of the room. You stared at Sam and he was just laughing at you.

“What happened, actually where the hell are we and how come we’re with Dean?” you managed to croak out.

“Well” he sat down on the floor behind you and you relaxed your head onto his thigh.  “You fainted…straight into my arms. You know if you wanted my attention, you didn’t have to go to such extremes” he laughed. “You fell head over heels for me!” You slapped him on his chest, laughing and sat up to reach the glass of water Dean had brought you back.

“Why would I want your attention, Winchester?” you said playfully, gulping down the glass of water.

“That’s a true point, Sammy” Dean looked at you smirking. “Anyways, we’re in this cabin and you wouldn’t believe what we’ve found?”

here is why u shouldn’t put your bread in the refrigerator

ok so. bread is basically a matrix of wheat flour protein molecules (gluten) and starch molecules. within this matrix u have carbon dioxide (produced during the fermentation process) that gives bread it’s squishy soft texture. 

starch molecules: starch molecules are made up of two long chain sugar molecules (amylose and amylopectin) to create a complex carbohydrate

when these starch molecules are in the presence of moisture or water (eg. baking the bread), the starch molecules weaken, allowing water molecules to squeeze into the matrix or bond with the starch molecules. when you take the bread out of the oven/bread maker, this process begins to reverse because it’s cooling down and drying out! this is called retrogradation.

now, wherever u leave ur bread, the water molecules detach themselves from the starch molecules and the starch molecules begin to harden again to their original form (dehydration). this process happens much much faster inside a fridge due to the cool temperature of the fridge! (this is what keeps fruit n veges fresh in a fridge! bc in their case the dehydration drastically slows down the degradation caused by the water molecules in them).

so yes your bread will have a longer shelf life (won’t go mouldy as fast!) but u’ll be eating crusty ass dry bread by like day two.

leave ur bread on the counter kids!!

To anyone visiting Disney this summer

PLEASE stay hydrated.
Drink throughout the entire day, before you’re even thirsty. 
It’s already in the upper 80′s and even 90′s in Orlando. A lot of rides have air-conditioned ques, but if you want to wait for the 3:00 parade or watch Dream Along with Mickey or meet with a character who meets outdoors you will be waiting out in the heat, likely in direct sunlight, for long periods of time.
Your vacation will be a lot less fun if you start  
You can bring a water bottle and keep refilling it in water fountains so you won’t be spending a ton of money on it, or if you want cold water just go into a shop and ask for a cup of water.
It’s really easy to forget to drink water. Usually by the time you realize how dehydrated you are you’ll already be feeling sluggish and awful, so try and keep that from happening. Your vacation will be a lot more fun.

like another anon said, Yunho mentioned Jaejoong in 2014 I think? because he was filming a historical drama at the time and the interviewer asked him about role models or something and he said that Jaejoong's a really good actor and he also did a historical drama so Yunho tries to learn from him or something and then Jaejoong responded by telling Yunho to drink loads of water (back when they were five Yunho fainted bcs of dehydration so Jae always looked out for him)

Yeah, I think I heard about that? This and this, right? Jaejoong’s message was very sweet. From reading the comments, it seemed like a lot of people took it as OMG YUNJAE but I didn’t really think that was the logical conclusion here? It sounded like the interviewer specifically asked Yunho about Jaejoong and he said something along the lines of “I haven’t watched his drama because I was busy but I’m glad he’s working hard,” which to me sounds like a very professional but pretty impersonal message, whereas Jaejoong’s was really long and sounded more personally to Yunho rather than about Yunho.

Now, I don’t say that to mean I think that Yunho’s cold or doesn’t care about Jaejoong or something, I’m just taking it as a reflection of the fact that Jaejoong seems more effusive in general and Yunho probably has stricter restrictions from SM when it comes to talking about Jaejoong/the JYJ members. I just think it’s interesting that this was categorized as a major Yunjae incident by some fans (just judging by the comments) rather than just an interaction.

Do you remember Sam' s tweet " Dog peed on my jacket... All I could think was, he looks dehydrated. " ? He tweeted this when he was already in Scotland in Dec 5th, after Thanksgiving from last year, which he spent in Mexico. This tweet is all written in Scottish slang and means something like " Person I wasn't sexually attracted claimed me and discredited my reputation. All I could think was she looks extra desperate wanting my attention " Shippers need to know this! In Sam's words = NO CODY!

The tweet twitter(.)com/SamHeughan/status/540918248020398080 This happened in Dec 5th and Sam unfollowed or blocked Cody at IG in Dec 5/ 6th and she posted the snorkel photo which some fans say it was fake in Dec 7th. He started to follow her at Twitter when back in LA which is a sign he did to keep an eye on her while she unfollowed him in all the SM.”

Yeah I heard that was Scottish slang but I wasn’t sure. I guess it makes sense. Poor girl was so desperate. Glad Sam eventually got her to shut up!

It is literally hotter in my house than outside of it I hate having a broken A/C I wish my parents would use my uni tuition money to fix this before I sweat myself into dehydration and a coma


How To Make Apple Chips with the Sedona Combo Dehydrator

Step 1: Slice apples into thin pieces. I recommend using the Choison V-Slicer. It’s a little pricey, but it makes cutting produce a lot easier. 

Step 2: Load them up on the dehydrating trays. Make sure they are spaced evenly and that each slice don’t touch each other so that they won’t stick together while dehydrating.

Step 3: Set the Sedona Combo Dehydrator to Combo Mode. Set the FAST mode temperature to 155 degrees for 3 hours to jump start the dehydrating process. Then, set the RAW mode temperature to 118 degrees for 5-7 hours to keep the dehydrating process going while still maintaining the raw nature of the food (118 degrees is the temperature that raw food proponents believe that food should only be heat up to to maintain the natural enzymes that are beneficial to our health). 

Step 4: Take out the apple chips from the dehydrator and enjoy!

I had a lot of fun making this haha :)


Hello everyone! I’m back with a vegan cookie recipe that I made for Tribest. Usually when I make these, I just eat them after I roll them up into balls, but this time, I experimented and tried to dehydrate them. They turned out pretty well! I left them in the dehydrator from 5pm - 9am, and the consistency of them was similar to soft baked cookies when I took them out. It was really good haha. I rate it 9.5/10.

Look out for a video of this coming up soon!

In the mean time, here’s the recipe in text form:

Banana Nut Bites: A Delicious and Simple Organic Raw Cookie Recipe


Organic Trail Mix of your Choice (a Mix of Dried Fruits and Nuts)

Organic Dried Pitted Dates

Organic Banana (Sliced)


Mince the ingredients together with the Slowstar 2-in-1 Juicer and Mincer by placing a piece of date and a slice of banana for every handful of trail mix. Then, mix the raw cookie dough and roll them up into balls. Arrange the balls on the Sedona Combo trays and flatten them with a wooden spatula or spoon. With the Sedona Combo Raw Food Dehydrator, set the Fast Mode temperature to 155 degrees for 2 hours, and then set the Raw Mode temperature to 118 degrees and the timer to Continuous (for continuous operation). Leave the cookies in the dehydrator for 5-12 hours or more. The longer you leave the cookies, the less moisture it is going to have (for softer cookies, leave them in the dehydrator for less time, and for a more solid consistency, leave them in to dehydrate for longer. Over-dehydrating food is better than under-dehydrating when trying to preserve them. The drier they are, the longer they will last).

Serve and enjoy!

My healthy version of a tortilla chip, enjoy!

Superseed Corn Chips

Yields approximately 70 - 90 chips


4 c raw fresh corn, 5-6 cobs

2 c yellow pepper, chopped

1 ½ c yellow onion, chopped, approx. ½ onion

1 ½ TBSP lime juice

1 TBSP lime zest

sea salt


1 c flax, soaked overnight in 2 c filtered water, do not drain

¼ c chia seeds, soaked overnight in 2 c filtered water, do not drain

1 c hemp seeds


1. Place corn, yellow pepper, onion, lime juice, zest, and sea salt into the Vita-Mix container(or blender) in the order listed and secure lid with plunger. Select Variable 1. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10. Blend for 30 -45 seconds or until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl.

2. Add seeds to large bowl and mix well. Make sure to get all the flax and chia chunks out.  Both seeds get really sticky after being soaked so you need to make sure you spread them out evenly within the mixture.

3. Pour the mixture on evenly between 3 teflex sheets. Using an offset spatula  spread as evenly as possible to cover sheet completely, 1/4” or thinner. Use the spatula to score the chips either in squares, triangles, or get creative!  Transfer sheet to grid lined dehydrator tray. Dehydrate at 105 for approx. 12 hours.  Flip the whole chip onto mesh sheet, taking away teflex sheet.  After flipped, continue dehydrating for 10-12 hours flipping periodically avoid the edge curl.

4. Stored in a sealed container in the pantry Superseed Corn Chips will last for 2 months.

After weeks of searching, I finally found a dehydrator at a local store! My main purpose in buying it was to be able to dry foods for backcountry hiking trips, after a rather unpleasant experience recently on the Juan de Fuca Trail with some fresh hummus that got decidedly less fresh after a couple days on the trail. I’ll probably also use it to more cheaply (and deliciously) obtain dried fruit.

I am aware, though, that the dehydrator is also a staple of the raw food kitchen. I’ve had some delicious things at expensive raw food cafes that relied on dehydration. I would love to make some of those things myself, but I don’t know where to start! Do you have any suggestions for recipes, websites, or cookbooks?
