Peanut How do your experimental results compare to typical experimental values (listed in the procedure)?
Once the marshmallow is completely burnt, record the temp of the water and weigh the fork with the marshmallow. Repeat this with the other two food to get results.

Record your observations about the size of the grease stains in your lab notebook in a data table.Count how many squares are covered in grease. You should also count squares that are only partially stained. Remember to record all of your data in your lab notebook. It is important to repeat experiments so you gather plenty of information. 7.Repeat steps 1-6 for the other three varieties of potato chips.
We measured the net movement of the potato membrane by comparing the weight of a potato cube before and after incubation in 7%, 14%, 21%, 28%, and distilled water. Hypothesis: Alternative: The potato cells will undergo some kind of water movement after the solution. Null: The potato cells will not have a net movement, and osmosis does not have an effect on the cube. Materials and Methods: The materials used in this lab were five small beakers, distilled water, 7%, 14%, 21%, 28% of NaCl solutions, potato cubes, and paper. First, fill one of the beakers about one-third full with distilled water, and fill the others will all four solutions.
My recommendations looked to be very simple to achieve until I notice that I needed to eat 9 ounces of grains daily. Having any grain really does a number on my colon. So trying to find another way was really hard. MyPyramid Plan suggested that I consume 3 ½ cups of vegetables which Is a little hard being I cannot eat any green leaves but the pyramid differentiated the varieties of vegetable such as dark green, orange, dry beans, and starchy vegetables. The dark green vegetable are ones I cannot eat so I found that orange vegetable would work best for me when turning my eating habits around, orange veggies consists of acorn squash, carrots, pumpkin, and or sweet potatoes.
I can snack on olives instead of reaching for chips or crackers and I can incorporate avocados into my salads or sandwiches. Cooking with olive oil will add a great flavor and get rid of all the saturated fats that come from butter. 2.

I took in only 23% of the recommended vegetables, which actually really surprises me because, recently, I have been switching out my snack of choice for carrots, so I thought that would have been beneficial to me for this assignment; it doesn’t look like that was the case. It is recommended that I take in two and a half cups of vegetables a day, but I only took in 0.6 cups. I took in 18% of the recommended fruits, which doesn’t really surprise me. I only like a few fruits and it just depends on my mood as to whether I feel like eating fruit at that time. It is recommended to take in a cup and a half of fruit a day and I only took in 0.3 cups.
Green leafy vegetables such as spinach are also rich in magnesium. Yes, I did consume nuts and cocoa in the form of candy bars but that wasn’t enough. Instead of eating breads and potatoes, I need to provide myself with eating more vegetables, legumes and small amount of nuts (contains a lot of fat). This mineral is also very important in proper heart functioning, bone formation and the central nervous
