            Honey chicken is not at all tough to cook. It is one of my favorite dishes. The glazing, glowing chicken with hints of sweet, tangy, salty flavors can be eaten with white rice, fried rice, or my personal favorite, jasmine rice. Just keep in check that you don’t over sweet the flavor, or put excess sauces in. It might just bitter the taste.

            6. Honey Cake with Caramalized Pears

              It would be unfair if I offer you no sweet dish made out of honey, beside all those sweet and savoury ones. So here is a simple cake infused with honey. The recipe is to the point, with no extra effort needed. You can top the cake off with caramalized pears, or you can put fresh strawberries, or any other berries, on it. If you go for fresh fruits, then drizzle some honey over them. This cake will surely top your, and your children’s favorite list.

              Besides making main meals, or desserts, honey can be used in drinks, in waffles, fruits, yogurts, and in many other items. This golden sticky yum is very versatile. Lastly, I would like to let you know that despite having so many scientific benefits, and versatility in cooking, it is always recommended not to feed honey to infants who are below one year. It is because honey contains spores of bacteria which can attack your infant’s undeveloped digestive system, and can cause botulism, a rare, but dangerous illness. Other than this, you can thoroughly enjoy food made out of honey. This liquid sure knows how to make dishes tastier!

              10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

              10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

              Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

              Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

              So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

              Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

              Advertising

              Video Summary

              1. It is easier.

              When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

              2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

              Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

              3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

              Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

              4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

              Advertising

                If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

                5. It could lead to better sleep.

                Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

                6. It can help your skin.

                For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

                7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

                Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

                8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

                Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

                9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

                For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

                10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

                  Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

                  Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

                  Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

                  Sleep well with your naked body!

                  With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

                  Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
