  • I read your article through Pinterest and immediately started implementing. On your tip to ingest baker powder, I was slightly confused as I’ve read so much about baking soda. I went ahead and diluted baking powder and am now worried it was a misprint after some things I’ve read about the contents of drinking straight baking powder. Please advise!
