How To Make Apple Chips with the Sedona Combo Dehydrator
Step 1: Slice apples into thin pieces. I recommend using the Choison V-Slicer. It’s a little pricey, but it makes cutting produce a lot easier.
Step 2: Load them up on the dehydrating trays. Make sure they are spaced evenly and that each slice don’t touch each other so that they won’t stick together while dehydrating.
Step 3: Set the Sedona Combo Dehydrator to Combo Mode. Set the FAST mode temperature to 155 degrees for 3 hours to jump start the dehydrating process. Then, set the RAW mode temperature to 118 degrees for 5-7 hours to keep the dehydrating process going while still maintaining the raw nature of the food (118 degrees is the temperature that raw food proponents believe that food should only be heat up to to maintain the natural enzymes that are beneficial to our health).
Step 4: Take out the apple chips from the dehydrator and enjoy!
I had a lot of fun making this haha :)
This Model’s Stunning Video Will Change How You Feel About Your Body Forever
Melanie Gaydos has a genetic disorder called ectodermal dysplasia, which affects her pores, hair, teeth, and fingernails. She’s also a high fashion model.
“When I go on a photo shoot, the other industry models don’t know what to make of me,” she says in an emotional new video for The What’s Underneath Project. “They’re usually like, ‘What the fuck is this?’ It’s difficult for me in the fashion world; people think I’m a gimmick and that I’m just being exploited for my differences.”
The What’s Underneath Project interviews people about how they feel judged for their bodies as they gradually undress and show their bodies as they really are. By the end of her beautifully told story, Gaydos is in her underwear.
“I have thought how I would be if I was born without a cleft palate and with a full head of hair, and I think I would be really boring,” she says. “Even though I’ve been through a lot, they’re my experiences, and I like where everything has brought me today.”
