Do Just One Thing for July 23, 2017

One easy way to make healthy snacks at home is to use a dehydrator to transform fresh fruits and veggies into delicious treats. But investing in a dehydrating machine can cost hundreds of dollars -- excessive if you don’t plan on dehydrating every day. Some recommend using your oven as a dehydrator; all you need to do is set the oven to the lowest temperature possible, crack the door open and let it slowly dehydrate your food overnight.

It’s more energy efficient, and it has vents to release moisture.
