Several recipes and techniques I plan to try, experiment, post, comment on in the appropriate thread, etc. But it's too hard to do on the ipad. The strawberry oat squares had a jam recipe in which chia seeds are the thickener. Must check that out. The coconut gluten free cake was for a basic cake recipe to use to make a dump cake. This is where you put fruit or whatever, usually canned pie filling, in the bottom of a baking dish, then sprinkle on a box of cake mix dry. Not mixed with any wet ingredients. And then you dot with pats of butter and bake. It's a great technique. I just don't want to do it with canned pie filling and boxed cake mix. And i want to do it with dried coconut.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.
[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.
Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.
Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
