This spice packs fiber—each nutty-tasting teaspoon of the seed has a gram. Study participants who took a fenugreek supplement in the a.m. ate less at lunch. Sprinkle it generously onto chicken before roasting.

One of nature’s super foods, is rich in iron and calcium – and cyanide. Unlike bitter almonds or other cyanide-containing foods, the amount in raw spinach won’t kill you, and you would have to consume a lot of spinach to make yourself sick. Interestingly, small doses on cyanide actually lower blood pressure and can possibly have an anti-oxidant effect.
First of all, cashews are not actually a nut, but a seed! Like almonds, it isn’t the inner seed itself which is dangerous, but the surrounding protective flesh. Cashew nuts, the small black nubs in the photo above, are encased in multiple layers of fleshy material, saturated with urushiol. Urushiol, the chemical in poison ivy and poison sumac which causes the itching and burning sensation upon contact, appears as an oily substance between the two layers of the cashews shell — hence Cashews old-world nickname: the Blister Nut. While it is possible to come in contact with urushiol-rich cashew shells, it is incredibly unlikely that any pieces will remain in tact after the extensive processing required for commercial distribution and ingestion. During the process of accessing the seed and preparing it for consumption, the urushiol-rich liquid is extracted and then used in commercial lacquers, waterproof paints and varnishes.
Bamboo shoots, like many other plants, contain cyanogenic glycosides — cyanide. While it cannot be removed through a careful or particular method of preparation, the amount varies from species to species. Generally, the amount found in commercially harvested bamboo is very low – but can be much higher in other varieties. So much like almonds, don’t go foraging for fresh shoots in your back yard
Sorghum, Millet and Barley Sprouts
Sprouted sorghum, millet and barley contain high levels of cyanide, definitely enough to make you sick if eaten in even moderate quantities – but they key here is the state of the grains, which are only toxic once they have begun to sprout.Be careful and stay healthy my friends!

Mudras are very useful during meditation. When I use mudras they give me a sense of when i’m drifting away from my physical senses. When my fingers are in a mudra and I have my eyes closed It becomes harder and harder to feel the way my fingers are situated. So I use them as a gauge as well.
z There is even an app to view mudras on your mobile device. Check out 99 mudras here

The waterfall has been known as the “Angel Falls” since the mid twentieth century; they are named after Jimmie Angel, a US aviator, who was the first person to fly over the falls. Angel’s ashes were scattered over the falls on July 2, 1960.
The common Spanish name “Salto Ángel” derives from his surname. In 2009, President Hugo Chávez announced his intention to change the name to the purported original indigenous Pemon term (“Kerepakupai Vená”, meaning “waterfall of the deepest place“), on the grounds that the nation’s most famous landmark should bear an indigenous name. Explaining the name change,
