1 15oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
⅓ cup cacao powder
4 Tbsp date syrup

INSTRUCTIONS

Place all base ingredients into a high speed blender. Use the tamper tool to mash it down and blend until smooth (it's ok if there are a few whole pieces here and there). Line a brownie tin with parchment paper and place the base dough inside.

Press down evenly with your fingers or a spoon. Wet your fingers with water if it's too sticky and place in the freezer.

Add all cream layer ingredients into the blender and mix until smooth. Pour it over the chocolate base and place back into the freezer until firm.

Once firm, prepare the caramel filling. Add the dates, nut butter and coconut milk into the blender until smooth and pour into a bowl. Add the corn flakes and mix together until combined.

Place the caramel crunch layer on top of the cream layer and spread evenly. Place back into the freezer and prepare the frosting.

Simply place all ingredients into the blender until smooth. Place on top of the caramel and spread evenly with a spatula.

Place back into the freezer until firm and then place into the fridge. Let it thaw a bit before cutting

The study, by Kimberly Warner, Ph.D., involved testing 82 salmon samples collected from restaurants and grocery stores during the winter of 2013-2014. Results showed that farmed Atlantic salmon was being sold as wild-caught salmon, while some samples showed that certain lower-value species were being sold with higher-value species labels, such as Chinook!

This is disturbing news for eco-conscious consumers, who are trying to do the right thing but end up supporting salmon farms. For health-conscious persons and those looking to lose weight, even more bad news, farmed salmon has twice the calories and fat of wild, including a higher percentage of saturated fat, may contain more chemicals and preservatives, including food coloring agents to give the salmon its pink color and might have even been raised on #GMO #fish chow.

How do these companies get away with this bait and switch? The U.S. exports roughly 70 percent of its #wildsalmon (often to China!), since it’s cheaper to process out of the country. When it’s shipped back in, there is no system to track the origin of the #salmon. In fact, imports back into the U.S. accounted for 78 percent of the 4.7 billion pounds of #seafood Americans consumed last year, according to the National Marine Fisheries Service. #uglybynature

Sugarcane can be eaten as is or consumed in the form of juice. Popularly known as ganne ka ras, the juice is not just another drink, but one of the healthiest drinks that you could lay your hands on. Here are a list of health benefits of sugarcane juice that will put a lot of natural and artificial energy drinks to shame.

Prevents cancer: Sugarcane juice is alkaline in nature because of the high concentration of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and manganese, which helps prevent diseases like cancer, that cannot survive in an alkaline environment. Thus it helps in fighting various types of cancer such as prostate and breast cancer.

Aids in digestion: It is good for the well-being of the digestive system due to its high potassium levels. It helps in keeping the digestive system in good shape, prevents stomach infections and is considered to be particularly useful in treating the problem of constipation.

Prevents heart diseases: It also prevents heart diseases and stroke as it helps decrease the levels of unhealthy or cholesterol and triglycerides.

Helps in reducing weight: As sugarcane #juice reduces the bad cholesterol levels in the body and has natural sugars, it helps in reducing weight. It is high in soluble fibre which aids in shedding weight.

Good for treating #diabetes: #Sugarcane is sweet in taste and is full of natural sweeteners, which have a low gylcemic index (GI), hence it works very well for diabetic patients.

Clears skin imperfections: When it comes to healthy skin, Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) which are part of the natural constituents of sugarcane juice, are supposed to have a lot of benefits. They fight #acne, reduce blemishes, prevent ageing and help in keeping the skin hydrated. Just apply sugarcane juice to your skin and let it dry or add it to your favourite face mask and scrub, and your #skin will look radiant and clean. #uglybynature

Since ancient times, people have commonly used beetroot as a healthy food that can treat various health issues. The ancient Romans and Greeks consumed beetroot to treat diseases and various health conditions.

Beetroot is high in nutrients, including vitamins, zinc, iodine, magnesium, saponins, flavonoids, chlorine, betaine, calcium, sodium and natural nitrites.

The hypoallergenic properties of chlorine enhance the functions of organs and clean the gallbladder, kidneys, and lymph.

Due to this rich nutrient density, this vegetable effectively treats diseases and conditions like diabetes, sleeping issues, weak immune system, anemia, atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, and thyroid issues.

Beets are high in nitrates, which convert into nitrites with the help of mouth bacteria and thus boost the blood flow to the brain.

Beetroots are high in betaine which supports the healthy liver function.

Red beetroots are incredibly high in iron, so their consumption will help the regeneration of red blood cells.

Studies have shown that the juice of this vegetable has potent anti-tumor effects, protects cells and promotes the regeneration of new ones.

The high amounts of nitrates reduce the blood pressure.

Beetroots are high in antioxidants which boost immunity and fight inflammation.

#Beet root #juice treats digestive problems and improves the metabolism.

Red beetroots are incredibly high in iron which aids the regeneration of red blood cell.

The consumption of beetroot juice boosts the muscle strength and power, and the regular consumption of this juice will help you achieve better athletic results.

These vegetables are an amazing anti-aging remedy, due to the high folate content, which fights wrinkles and other skin issues.

The juice from beetroots with beet greens involves betaine and tryptophan, which effectively relaxes the mind and treats depression.

#Beetroots are rich in folate and folic acid which prevent birth defects, so the juice of beets is recommended to be consumed in moderate amounts in the case of pregnancy. #uglybynature

Dairy is a significant source of female hormone exposure. Commercial cow’s milk contains large amounts of estrogen and progesterone, which is a serious concern. This is further exacerbated by modern dairy cows being genetically altered to continuously produce milk – even throughout their repeated pregnancies. Even milk products labeled “organic” or “no hormones added” usually contain high levels of these problematic hormones, which are naturally produced by cows (even if those cows have not been given any additional hormones for purposes of the product label). .
.

Casein is the main protein in dairy, and studies have shown that it facilitates the growth and development of cancer. In fact, some studies even found that cancer development could be controlled more by casein levels in diet than by exposure to the underlying carcinogen.

Dairy is associated with increased risk of several immune-related disorders (from allergic conditions to autoimmune diseases), many being life-changing and difficult to treat. The associations with type 1 #diabetes and multiple sclerosis are particularly concerning.

Milk and other dairy products are important vehicles for foodborne pathogens due to a variety of microorganisms they harbor. Even with modern sanitation requirements, including pasteurization and curing, outbreaks still occur, resulting in severe and sometimes even fatal outcomes.
Salmonella, Listeria, and E. coli are some of the more common foodborne outbreaks associated with dairy.

Exposure to organochlorine pesticides (OCP) is another problem associated with dairy. Even pesticides that have long been banned still show up when #dairyproducts are tested.

The largest use of #antibiotics worldwide is for livestock, for non-therapeutic purposes, such as infection prevention and to promote feed efficiency and animal growth.

Not only has the body of scientific evidence been found inadequate to support the idea that dairy consumption promotes bone health, but numerous large-scale studies have found that consuming #dairy may be detrimental to bone health. #uglybynature

THE BEST IN THE WORLD.. OR PROVE ME WRONG!

I have to actually say Ugly by Nature is the best natural toothpaste ever! I have tried other brands and they never really did the job, especially from a person who don't have pearly whites. Well I feel this toothpaste really cleans my teeth well, way better than any other toothpaste. I truly love the flavors and it don't make me spit out after brushing. Meaning other toothpaste made me keep spitting. Maybe cuz the taste was bad and also has fluoride in it. I stop brushing with fluoride years ago. So I notice the spitting stop. But when I use other natural toothpaste it didn't do it for me like Ugly by Nature do. It really cleans my teeth and taste good. I actually love the color as well. And the smell is divine fresh. I only tried two flavors so far, the Wacky Watermelon & Spankin Spearmint. Both are really good. My plan is to try all. Oh and want to add, good price for this product. It's definitely a toothpaste you can trust. Trust Me!

If you want to lose weight, adding some hot sauce to your food can do wonders. With hot sauce, not only are you taking it very few calories but its vitamin C and capsaicin can also boost your metabolism, thereby aiding weight loss. Capsaicin increases energy expenditure and decreases body fat.

Capsaicin is responsible for the heat and pain you experience after having the spicy hot sauce. To combat this pain, your body produces endorphins or the “feel-good” hormones that help to elevate your mood instantly.

Next time you are suffering from a blocked or stuffy nose, grab some hot sauce and add it to your soup. If even temporarily, hot sauce can effectively clear your sinuses, relieving you from the irritation of a cold.

Capsaicin in #hotsauce can effectively relieve many types of pain, including joint pain and migraine. Although capsaicin in the hot sauce can cause your lips and mouth to burn, it has pain relieving properties. If you suffer from joint pain, including hot sauce in your meals can help you get rid of the pain.

Hot sauce has cancer-fighting properties due to the presence of capsaicin. Cancer is caused by the abnormal growth of cells. Capsaicin induces apoptosis, the process of programmed cell death or cell suicide.

The antioxidant #capsaicin is also effective in preventing diabetes. It can reduce your blood sugar by increasing the insulin levels in the body. Having hot sauce can help the people with type 1 and type 2 #diabetes as it will help to regulate their blood sugar. #uglybynature

The chia seed was once a staple food of the Aztecs, loved for its ability to sustain and to give endurance.
Most health-conscious people will be more familiar with linseeds (flaxseeds) than they will be with #chiaseeds. So, if you've ever put a spoon of linseed into some water and left it for thirty minutes, you would have returned to find a kind of glutinous solution, kind of like a gel consistency. Well, the same thing happens with chia seeds, which is another reason that they are so good for you; they act the same way in your gut. This means that they are really good for your digestive system, providing both a high amount of fiber, and also this action of forming a gel-like solution moves through your body and cleans up as it goes. It's also thought that this gel physically prevents the fast breaking down of carbohydrates in the body by slowing down the action of the enzymes on the carbs.

Chia is gluten free
It is super high in dietary fiber, making it great for digestion and healing digestion issues.
It contains 20% omega-3 ALA, making it a super food for the brain and heart.
Chia has eight times more omega-3 than salmon!
It boasts 20% protein
It is high in antioxidants (It has a four times higher ORAC value than blueberries)
Chia contains five times more #calcium than #milk
Chia contains seven times more vitamin C than oranges
It contains three times more iron than spinach
It contains twice the potassium content of banana
It is food for healthy #skin, #hair and #nails
It has a positive impact balancing blood glucose levels (making it awesome for diabetics)
#Chia makes a great egg replacement. Just combine with water to form a gel, and add it to recipes that call for #egg. #uglybynature

Scientists have managed to destroy cancerous tumours by using an experimental drug derived from the seeds of a fruit found in north Queensland rainforests.

The drug, called EBC-46, was produced by extracting a compound from the berry of the blushwood tree, a plant only found in specific areas of the Atherton Tablelands.

A single injection of the drug directly into #melanoma models in the laboratory, as well as into #cancers of the head, neck and colon in animals, destroyed the tumours long-term in more than 70% of cases, the study’s lead author, Dr Glen Boyle, said. “In preclinical trials we injected it into our models and within five minutes, you see a purpling of the area that looks like a bruise,” Boyle, from the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute said. “About 24 hours later, the tumour area goes black, a couple of days later you see a scab, and at around the 1.5 week mark, the scab falls off, leaving clean #skin with no tumour there.
.
. The speed certainly surprised me.” Researchers believe the drug triggers a cellular response which cuts off the blood supply to the #tumour by opening it up. “That’s why we see a bruise-like situation forming in the tumour,” Boyle said. “This seems to lead to an activation of the body’s own #immune system which then comes in and cleans up the mess.” #uglybynature

Epsom salts are named for a bitter saline spring located at Epsom in Surrey, England. Epsom is different than traditional salts in that it is actually a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate. These minerals have very powerful health benefits that can enhance the detoxification capabilities of the body.

Magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the skin and into the body’s blood stream. The skin is a highly porous membrane that both takes in minerals and eliminates toxins every day. Using a powerful mineral base such as Epsom salts in a bathwater medium creates a process called reverse osmosis. This process pulls salt and harmful toxins out of the body and allows the magnesium and sulfates to enter into the body.

Magnesium plays a critical role in over 325 enzymes, helps to improve muscle and nerve function, reduces inflammation and improves blood flow and oxygenation throughout the body. Sulfates are necessary building blocks for healthy joints, skin and nervous tissue. Epsom salts replenish the body’s magnesium levels and sulfates. This combination helps to flush #toxins from the body and helps build key protein molecules in the brain tissue and joints.

The use of regular Epsom salt #baths has been shown to improve the symptoms of many health conditions including athlete’s foot, gout, toenail fungus, sprains, bruises and muscle soreness. It is also good for anyone dealing with chronic disease or chronic pain to do regular #Epsomsalt baths to help detoxify and de-inflame while improving mineral and sulfur balance in the body. #uglybynature

A study published in the medical journal, Circulation, found that grapefruit prevents plaque build-up in the arteries (atherosclerosis) in animals with high cholesterol levels. This study showed that the soluble fiber pectin was the primary agent responsible for slowing down the progression of plaque-build up.
Israeli researchers from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem tested grapefruits for their cholesterol-lowering potential. The study participants added grapefruit to their daily diets. The results indicated a reduction in total cholesterol levels by 15%, LDL “bad” cholesterol by 20% and triglycerides by 17%. There were no changes in the control group, who did not consume the grapefruit.
Citrus fruits contain a nutrient within their peels and oils called d-limonene. In particular, oranges and lemons are loaded with d-limonene, which gives these citrus #fruits their pleasant scent. In fact, d-limonene is often used in soaps, perfumes, lotions and environmentally-friendly household cleaning products due to its appealing aroma. But, aside from the fragrance, consuming d-limonene can have a plethora of health benefits:

Dissolves gallstones as it is an excellent solvent of cholesterol
Relieves indigestion symptoms and GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
Decreases blood pressure and lowers blood lipid levels (triglycerides)

A joint study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and KGK Synergize, a Canadian nutraceutical company, identified a class of compounds isolated from orange and tangerine peels that shows promise in animal studies as a potent, natural alternative for lowering LDL #cholesterol (bad cholesterol), without the possible side effects, such as liver disease and muscle weakness, of conventional cholesterol-lowering drugs.

The compounds, called polymethoxylated flavones (PMFs), are similar to other plant pigments found in citrus that have been increasingly linked to health benefits, including protection against cancer, heart disease and inflammation. #uglybynature

There are numerous studies conducted and all of them have discovered that watermelon contains two times the lycopene content of tomato when it was compared to the same value. Lycopene is a powerful compound that transports antioxidants that are known to be anti-inflammatory, which helps in preventing inflammation that usually leads to cancer.

The predominant #antioxidant that can be sound in watermelon lessens the toxic matter in the body, which results to decreasing #asthma attacks.

Watermelon is packed with beta-carotene and Vitamin C. Therefore that reduces inflammation and helps in some conditions just like #osteoarthritis or #rheumatoidarthritis.

Also consuming the juice that came from watermelon rind may help in getting rid of the stones in the kidney. It can work as a natural cleansing agent due to its diuretic effects. That is good for the health of the kidney and gallbladder.

Drinking a large glass of watermelon juice has the ability help you in relieving constipation. Also it is extremely effective in assisting in the elimination of wastes.

Watermelons are rich in beta-carotene that is converted in our body as Vitamin A. This nutrient protects the eyes from age-related muscular degeneration as well as night blindness.

#Watermelon is packed with antioxidants, lycopene. And other necessary vitamins that work as a crucial role in decreasing the chance of heart attacks and strokes. #uglybynature
