-Halves of red, orange, yellow, and green bell peppers with a wedge of red onion all chopped up stirred in a hot pan with bone broth, 2 organic eggs, and sliced okra
-Tons of tea and water throughout the day
-Spoonfuls of bone marrow/fat from more broth I'm simmering
-Spoonful of maca root mixed with a little filtered water
-Couple spoonfuls of aloe vera gel
-Spoonful of cod liver oil
-The rest of a bottle of black currant kombucha
-Coconut milk, vanilla extract, and some cheap gin (this concoction made me sleepy/little tummy achey)

Instead of looking for the right person, become the right person.

If you treat your self/symptom with a lot more compassion, you'll find your skin heals much faster when it's not constantly in store for a thrashin'. Rather than blasting the sound of what you're currently treating your face with, the case may be you just need to change the station and re-evaluate you and your skin's relationship . It's easier than you think to relate with, because much like mainstream radio emotions always make for underrated yet relevant statements.

My website is in progress and will probably benefit you in some way.

coconut pancakes yum

hey how can i make healthy pancakes like you?? they need to be iron and calcium free as well because i take medicine in the am that i cannt combine with iron calcium or dairy which i dont eat any dairy any day


You mix dried coconut with an egg to a batter consistency and cook. But those were sweet potato and coconut pancakes in which a baked and mashed sweet potato was mixed with egg and dried coconut and cooked. There are many other such recipes in the Food and Recipe thread, especially in the better grain, better bread, gluten free, breakfast, coconut and sweet potato threads. I assume you know what foods are too high in calcium and iron for you, right?

[ 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.

i usually just eat oatmeal in the morning because it has almost no calcium and iron in it i think 5% iron maybe

but at night when i take it i have no idea how much calcium and iron is actually in the dinners i eat because my mom is making them for the most part. :/

and im about to try really strict diet again for a change and really stick with it for a few months because im noticing more and more clogged pores no matter what i cleanse with or topicals so it must be something that i am eating from within the inside that is causing my closed comedones.. its really aggravating me :(

I'm a pretty healthy eater but... today was 'unhealthy' for me because of the amount of dairy and the fact that my beans came in a can. I have to say though that I think the stress of totally denying myself things like chocolate and cheese is more detrimental than actually eating little bits of it at a time. You have to live a little!


Breakfast: Organic dried fruit and seed muesli with Oatly Oat Milk, a blood orange, and black tea with organic whole milk

Lunch: Home made tomato sauce using one very large tomato, spices, and maple syrup, all over plain haricot beans, a steamed carrot, and one crushed clove of raw garlic. 4 pieces or 1 strip of Vivani Dark chocolate with almonds

Dinner: Steamed broccoli with cheese, mashed potatoes with some organic whole milk and butter, and hot smoked salmon

Tea: Fresh ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, and honey tea

Supplements: 2 probiotics (1 morning, 1 night) and a Woman's multivitamin. I only take the multivitamin after ovulation though. In the first half of my cycle I take Evening Primrose Oil

For my snack, I had dry gluten free cheerios and some gluten free rice cakes with dairy free chocolate on top (not the healthiest snack but yummy nonetheless!)

Yesterday:
-beef bone broth with daikon peelings and some celery, cooked until soft
-1/2 lb of seaweed salad from asian market (gonna start staying away from this because I'm not sure if they use soy oil or something and its ingredients aren't marked on the package...)
-HUGE bowl of bone broth with rice noodles, mung bean sprouts, lime, mint, thin strips of flank, "beef balls" (little sausage-like pieces made of meat and tendon), tripe, and tendon (After the library I spent all day working on a paper in I decided to reward myself with Vietnamese from a nearby restaurant and didn't regret it as much as I suspected I might, besides the fact they use conventionally raised meat. All their broth is made from scratch, making it very GAPS friendly, minus the rice noodles. Yum)
-roasted sweet potato cubes, beet cubes, yellow onion, minced garlic, and spices in the oven
-egg and coconut milk scramble with shiitake and white mushrooms, fresh sage, cilantro, rosemary, leftover liverwurst and onions, and a teensy bit of tapioca starch
-steamed snap peas, radish, mini collards and purple kale winter mix, and a pinch of peppermint and parsley
-lots of globe grapes, with seeds
-some pieces of cheap low-sugar chocolate

A warning to everybody on here: do NOT try to gain weight on just vegetables. It won't work. I tried. Now I'm suffering from extreme IBS. I tore my intestines up with too much fiber. Oi.

Now, even though I'm scared, I'm adding in more grains and fats (but not dairy, no meat.) I absolutely HAVE to get myself healthy before college this fall... so I have no choice. I just pray that my face doesn't break out! (I may be just paranoid, but it seems like my forehead is getting a little bumpy...)

BREAKFAST: eggs, some applesauce, slice of whole-wheat toast with tons of peanut butter

LUNCH: Salad with romaine, spinach, cucumbers, carrots, and balsamic vinaigrette

DINNER: Salad with romaine, spinach, cucumbers, sweet bell peppers, roasted green beans and carrots, zucchini sauteed in olive oil, kidney beans, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, and balsamic vinaigrette

DESSERT: Single-serve blueberry crisp: 2 cups blueberries with a topping made of 2 tbsp oats, 2 tbsp whole wheat flour, 1 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tbsp butter, baked in 350*F oven for 30 minutes and then broiled for a minute to get a nice crust. Topped with a ton of melted peanut butter!

Still lots of veggies, but a LOT more fatty/sugary/carby things. Eeeee... so scared. I wish I could just eat what I want and enjoy gaining weight... but between my face and my intestines, this is just so STRESSFUL!!

It was the first time I ever cooked turnips and beets, and i have to say, just roasting them with chicken fat and salt is not enough. they need something more. Maybe some balsalmic vinegar. Rutabaga and sweet potatoes are good, but I knew that.


Yep, balsamic vinegar is good with beets, and with turnips lemon juice and paprika is a good combo. I usually roast turnips with either the chicken fat or duck/goose fat and some salt.
