Crystallization - a very unique property of honey

The Plants from which honey bees collect nectar have an effect on colour, taste, texture, and consistency of the honey. Depending upon the plant origin the honey may either crystallize or remain liquid for a long period of time. Honey that remains liquid or let’s put it this way- the honey remains fluid and doesn’t crystallizes e.g. the Finnish willow herb honey and acacia honey (which is gathered from abroad) or grape honey remains liquid for years. Whereas, mustard or mixed flower honey crystallizes over a period of time.
Honey that contains more fructose remains liquid at room temperature, Mustard honey crystallizes over a period of time, this happens because of high glucose content in the honey which is called crystallization and this is a natural process in honey. The speed with which honey crystallizes varies a lot; part of honey may crystallize soon after extraction whereas part of it may remain liquid for even a relatively longer time.
By using a churning method at the stage of crystallization, the honey can be kept at fine grained or soft so it’s easy to use. So this explains why crystallized honey is of also good quality and organic whilst many believe in myths that liquid one is only pure and organic, interesting isn’t it?

Other ways to De-crystallize Honey
You can also heat your honey in the microwave. Just heat it for 30 seconds, stir it, and heat it again until the sugar dissolves back into the honey. Just know that this method is likely to kill all of the beneficial enzymes and special properties found in raw honey. Because of this, you may only want to use the microwave method to de-crystallize pasteurized honey. All of those special qualities will already be missing from the honey.

Storing Honey in the Refrigerator
To keep honey from crystallizing prematurely, store it at room temperature. Storing honey in the refrigerator will cause it to crystallize rapidly, and isn't necessary since it doesn't go bad.
Of course, if you prefer crystallized honey, which can be a chewy sweet snack, refrigeration is the way to go. Just be advised that if it's in a bear-shaped bottle or another container that it will be hard to remove crystallized honey. Spread it out on a plate or other flat surface so you have a long strip of crystallized honey that can be cut into bit-sized pieces.

Other Methods for Using Honey
To ensure that no honey goes to waste, spray your measuring cup or spoon with cooking oil or run it under hot water before you measure out your honey. This will cause the honey to drop right out of the cup or spoon when you add it to a recipe, so nothing gets left behind. As expensive as honey is these days, you sure don't want to wash any of it down the drain!
If you have a stuck lid, run the jar under hot water for a minute to soften up the honey that's hardened around the rim. The lid should loosen right up when you go to turn it again.

HELPS YOU ACHIEVE YOUR HEALTH GOALS

1. Be realistic.

The best intentions run amok when people attempt to make unrealistic lifestyle changes. They tend to be wishes more than goals. One of my most important goals as a psychologist is to help people separate fantasy from reality. I want people to deal with reality. Take a hard look at your resolution in the light of day to make sure it is something you can achieve. Unattainable goals are left unfulfilled and lead to disappointment.

2. Establish step-wise objectives.

Pursue your larger, overall goal in incremental steps. If your goal is to lose 50 pounds, start small. Instead of overhauling your entire diet, replace one guilty pleasure — such as cookies or ice cream — with something healthier that you enjoy, such as your favorite piece of fruit. I know exercise is good for mental health, but I never tell patients to start exercising 30 minutes a day, seven days a week. Instead, I tell them to start doing something three days a week, even if it is just walking the dog around the block. Do what you can; you can always up the ante as your progress toward your overall goal.

3. Be persistent.

Go easy on yourself. If you stray off course, don’t give up. Just because you succumbed to a bowl of ice cream on Saturday night, does not mean you have to resume making ice cream a regular part of your diet. Consider your relapse a learning experience. Try to figure out why you fell back into a bad habit, and what you can do to prevent it from happening again. Nobody’s perfect.

4. Reward success.

When you reach a goal, do something you enjoy. See a movie or buy a new outfit — whatever makes you feel good.

5. Seek support.

Find others who share your goals and pursue them together. Like-minded individuals are easy to find this time of year — in exercise classes, support groups and smoking cessation programs.

6. Take one day at a time.

Follow the practice of 12-step programs and stay in the present. “Forever” is a long time; thinking too far into the future can make chasing a goal seem like a marathon more than a fun run.

7. Focus on one behavior at a time.

People trying to exercise, lose weight and stop smoking all at the same time are destined for failure. Pick a “target” behavior that is important to you and that you have wanted to change for a long time. Make one goal and go after it.

8. Keep a diary or journal.

Writing things down helps you state your goals and track your progress. It’s an expression of your commitment and a good way to look back and see how far you have come, which can motivate you to continue.

Cooling Homemade Popsicles for summer

Summer is just around the corner, so you can expect Los Angeles heat waves to be hitting campus right about now. Instead of stretching yourself in front of AC or taking a dip in one of the many fountains on campus, cool off with easy-­to-­make popsicles!

I don’t know about you, but as a kid, in the summer I remember putting random beverages like lemonade and Capri Suns in the freezer when temperatures reached above 80 degrees. The frozen treats and slushies were so easy to make and provided a refreshing way to turn the heat down.

Popsicles can be made with virtually any liquid or yogurt, and you can add whatever additional ingredients you prefer. Last summer, I tried out a green tea popsicle recipe made with coconut milk and matcha green tea powder and loved the cool, creaminess of the popsicle. You can try out with this recipe.

After finding another can of coconut milk at Fresh & Easy and after some brief Pinterest scrolling, I was surprised to find so many popsicle recipes to try out with coconut milk. Though coconuts have had a bad rep in the past due to their high content of saturated fat, coconuts actually have the potential to help in weight loss, boost immune health and improve skin and hair quality, so I decided to try another recipe with coconut milk instead of using the usual fruit juice or yogurt that we are used to freezing.

    Hi, I am Renu Jain and I live in Gurgaon. Almost a year back, I was good 94 kgs and was diagnosed with diabetes. I have... been a patient of high blood pressure and for the last 20 years I had insomnia. Seeing my overweight, many doctors called out for weight reduction. I finally decided to reduce my weight and control my diabetes and that’s how I came across Dr, Priyanka’s credentials as a dietitian on google. Dr. Priyanka studied my entire history and gave me the confidence that I will be able to reduce my weight very soon. She gave me weekly diet plans which included all the healthy things along certain wishes which helped to satisfy my craving for oily food. She also suggested me yoga to improve my sleeping problems. And within a month I was able to see the results. My weight reduced by 3 kgs and my sleeping cycle improved. I was following the diet plans suggested by Priyanka whole heartedly. And in almost 9 months I achieved 85kg weight, with my diabetes under control and and an improved sleeping cycle. I whole heartedly thank Dr. Priyanka for her right guidance in achieving all these goals.read more

    I am native of Jhajjar city, Haryana and my father suffered head injury in a road accident, with 2 months ICU... hospitalization. The hospital Dr advised to follow a good care as my father was on PEG tube feeding. But we had no idea on how to manage his tube nutrition and avoid any further hospitalisation. I searched Dieticians online and, find out Diet Planet supporting hospitalised patients. I consulted Dietician Priyanka and she helped with a personalized plan to supply high quality nutritious diet in very less portion via tube feed. My father recovered very well from her dietary care and now he is out from life risk, its like miracle for us and Doctors. My heartfelt thanks to her to help us take out from serious condition. High quality nutrition care for critically ill patients work wonders and helps in speedy recovery and assures early hospital discharge as only Dr consultation and medicines can’t help much. With good homely care the attendants of such patients family also suffer less psychologically and financially by not losing precious time as chances of speedy recovery are high in early stages. From my journey I understood that a Dr. is not expert on diet and the hospital diet plan would not have helped much, speciality diet consultation in such case is a need for patient to help all family. I would like to highly recommend Dt. Priyanka Clinic for seriously sick or hospitalized/ discharged patients with limitation of consuming low portion diet or on tube feed. Her fees and product options given are affordable with good n helpfull knowledge sharing and caregiving. Best thing is that her consultation is available on phone call so physically visiting with patient is not really required thus it makes it very easy. Thanks to Dt. Priyanka for all her efforts ☺️read more

    Diet planet's products are what I like most. Especially the protein which tastes soooo good!! I m a thyroid patient so... it's much more difficult for me to lose weight though I just wanted to lose 4 kgs only and with Priyanka's guidance I managed to lose almost 2 in one and a half month due to thyroid condition. Her diet plans are great and full of nutrition. And She always takes personal interest in client's progress. Thanks!read more

    Today I would like to share my dieting experience with one of my favourite motivational quote which says that the best... way not to feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Before taking my dieting plan my weight was 67 and I used to look so fatty.i always had a wish to look good and try different western dresses But due to my weight i hesitate to try different dresses and also not feel confident from inside. But after taking the diet plan from one of my favourite dietician ,i.e priyanka khandelwal I found a drastic change in my over all health I am happy to report that under her guidance i am not only able to reduce my weight but also find myself healthy too. The best part of her diet plan is that one need not skip any meal 8 small meal per day can do wonders in one life, if they dedicatedly follow whatever will be instructed by her. I have reduced around 10 kg under her guidance and support and from last 1 year without skipping any meal. I have also used omega3 capsules and also tries keva drops , and vitamin b tablets suggested by her and it actually did wonder in my body. Thank youread more
