Snack time made healthier by the Excalibur Dehydrator

Today’s American is getting more and more health conscious, what with the latest fitness craze and popular media, the trend is to get healthy by eating healthy and engaging in regular physical activity. One of the waterloos of the health-conscious is snack time. Snacks that are available in popular grocery stores are all high in carbohydrates and sugar and indulging in them means say goodbye to your diet. Healthy snacks, on the other hand, although available in most of today’s markets tend to be a little pricey. So how do you eat healthy and still stay within your budget? A good investment to make in your health is to get yourself an Excalibur Dehydrator. With this kitchen tool, you can make yourself healthy snacks in a way that is economical and at the same time won’t stretch your waistline.

An Excalibur Dehydrator is a machine that allows you to dry fruits, vegetables, and meats by drawing out moisture. By reducing a food’s water content with the Excalibur Dehydrator, you minimize the possibility of bacteria growth thus preserving food and eliminating spoilage. Ideally, you should be drying fruits and vegetables at a temperature of about 130 degrees Fahrenheit. This causes food to release moisture which is then circulated and then eventually blown out of the machine by fans through built in air vents. Dehydrating food prolongs shelf life while at the same time preserving minerals and nutrients that are usually lost when food is cooked.

Excalibur has been making food dehydrators since 1973. It’s not one of the more popular dehydrators on the market because it’s a small company that has, until recently, sold their product direct to their consumers. Today, you can find an Excalibur Dehydrator at a number of retailers including online stores like Amazon. Despite the lack of advertising though, the Excalibur Dehydrator is touted by several sources as one of the best dehydrators on the market.

The Excalibur Dehydrator is different from other food dehydrators most noticeably in it’s appearance. It is a large black box-shaped machine while other manufacturers seem to favor a cylindrical shape. It comes in various sizes featuring 4-tray, 5-tray, and 9-tray models. The Excalibur Dehydrator has a patented horizontal airflow system which circulates air evenly resulting in even drying all over the unit. This means that you don’t have to rearrange trays at intervals to ensure even drying.

Each tray in the Excalibur Dehydrator is made of a polycarbonate material with Polyscreen inserts. This means you have a total of about 15 feet of drying space. It has a thermostat that goes up to 145 degrees Fahrenheit and the horizontal drying system is located at the back of the unit. And since the Excalibur Dehydrator has square trays you can use the entire surface of the trays to dry your food. It’s also built to run for prolonged periods of time with timers that can run up to 26 hours giving your food the day or so it needs to dry completely.

Invest in your health by getting the Excalibur Dehydrator. With all the healthy snacks you’ll be making, you’ll be sure to shed those extra pounds in no time.

Reblog if you’re non binary and dmab so I can follow you. I need more surrounding of others like myself. Bonus points for also being autistic.

Wishing my legs weren’t jello right now so I could skate another 70 miles. There really is nothing quite like completing a goal and feeling good about yourself.

So I just found out that Laverne Cox has an identical twin brother, who played pre-transition Sophia in OITNB.
I was wondering how they found someone that looked just like her to play the role!
Super cool.

they were discussing Sophia’s back story and she told them “ya know, i have a twin brother.” they asked him to do it and he said yes! :D

fun fact Jenji Kohan told Laverne Cox that they were going to hire somebody to play her pre-transition because they didn’t want to traumatize her or trigger dysphoria by having her pretend to be a man and she was like “no no, I can do this, I’m an actress” but the creators of the show insisted on using her twin brother instead 


Another fun fact: They actually let Laverne do the take as pre-transition Sophia but the creators told her that she was too feminine to play a man.

Another fun fact: her twin brother, M. Lamar, is a brilliant, intellectual, queer, black musician and performer and everyone should check out his work. 



Wow, did not know this

In the past several days all of my trans girl friends have had exponential increases in harassment, weird encounters and attitude towards them. The Caitlyn Jenner thing has triggered public regression to Harry Benjamin Syndrom Standards. This is the pass/no-pass standards of trans femininity.



Caitlyn Jenner’s views are irrelevant to the public reaction to passibility standards that are really unobtainable. People are getting vicious…

for all the shitheads continuing to throw a tantrum over Caitlyn Jenner being called a hero when “soldiers are the real heroes,” lemme throw some numbers at you real quick: during the deadliest war in American history (the Civil War), U.S. soldiers had a 1 in 15 chance of dying [x]. currently, trans women have a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered, or 1 in 8 for trans women of color [x]. it is currently MORE DANGEROUS to be a trans woman in the U.S. than it is to have fought in the deadliest war in our history. let that sink in as you sit the fuck down.
