Grape Juice

This is actually not my writing. I am hiring someone to write articles for me and this one is pretty much copied from all over the place. But I am posting it here to check what copyscape thinks about it. Since as far as I know you can't copyscape check the text if it is not published online if you don't have the "pro" version of copyscape.

Well here it goes, the task was to write about grape juice.

If you’re constantly feeling tired or burnt out, it may be because your immune system is not working properly due to poor diet or excessive stress. You’ve probably heard that wine contains powerful antioxidants that help keep your healthy; well, grape juice contains antioxidants as well but doesn’t make your drowsy like alcohol can. An easy way to get a lot of energy naturally is to start drinking grape juice. Give it a try and see if you don't feel refreshed.

If you drink grape juice regularly, these antioxidants can help boost your immune system, leaving you feeling healthy and energized. Antioxidants have also been shown to fight heart disease, prevent Alzheimer’s, and decrease the signs of aging.
The grape juice helps fatigue by replacing your body's iron supply. Iron deficiency is common, especially in women and can cause severe fatigue and leave you feeling completely tired and burnt out. Don’t drink dark grape juices if you are anemic (low on iron). Dark grape juices contain chemicals that can actually lower the level of iron in your system, worsening the problem. Stick to white or light grape juice for the best iron boost. If you’re feeling extra tired after a workout, you probably need to replenish iron lost from sweating. Drinking grape juice will not only give you more energy, but also help with muscle fatigue as well.
When using grape juice to fight fatigue, you should be careful what brand you choose. Many “juices” are actually grape drinks or cocktails that have extra sugar added to them. Sugar may give you a boost for a while but eventually it will wear off. For the most benefit, find 100% grape juices with all natural ingredients. If you can’t find a brand you like, just get some grapes and make your own.

Don’t just deal with your fatigue, fight it and improve your health at the same time with an energizing glass of grape juice.

From Time To time...

...something happens that you never thought it would. Sometimes it's bad and sometimes it's good. Sometimes it hurts as hell and brings tears of sorrow to your eyes and sometimes it makes you smile.

Yeah...an emotional day... I don't want to go into details. But I will have some homemade mexican today to make me feel better.


After a loooooooong long time I'm back to recipes. This time it's all about potatoes. Potatoes for mashed potatoes, for potato pie etc... Now there are a few thing you should know :)

1. How to select the right kind of potato for your potato pie?
Introduced here are four varieties of potatoes but generally there are about 16 different potatoes that you can find at the market and in the stores. Other potatoes are rarer kinds and difficult to get by. But remember that potatoes fall into three common categories: starchy, waxy, and those in - between which are referred to as all - purposed.

Starchy potatoes are ideal for baking. They are fluffy and absorbent, perfect for butter on a baked potato or the oil in a fryer. They are decent mashed, but care must be taken not to over work them, else you are going to have a gluey mess.

Waxy potatoes have a smoother, more waxy texture so they hold their shape while cooking. They work well in dishes like soups, stews, potato salad and scalloped potatoes where you would need to boil, slice, or roast.

All - purpose potatoes have a less starch than starchy potatoes, but not so much that they completely fall apart when cooked. They are going to work for most potato dishes as potato pie is.

A note on potato safety - don't use potatoes with a green - tint to the skin. These have been exposed to too much light and have developed the toxin 'solanine' which can cause some nasty conditions like cramping, headaches, diarrhea, and fever. Such a potato also will have a bitter flavor.

2. A list of different potatoes

Russet (starchy) This is the potato most people have fixed in their minds as the classic potato. They are ideal baking potatoes and are also good fried and mashed.

Jewel Yam (starchy) Actually a sweet potato, not a true jam, this is the most commonly found market sweet potato. Great baked or roasted.

Japanese Sweet Potato (starchy) This variety has a pink to purple skin with white flesh. Its flavor is sweet and nutty. They can be grilled, steamed or baked.

Hannah Sweet Potato (starchy) Very much like a Jewel potato, but with lighter skin and flesh.
