Thanks to you guys I'm eating healthier and my acne HAS gotten milder,THANX AGAIN!!!

Now. I need recipes low in: calories, fat, 'grease', and that will not aggreavate acne..

Also i need the step-by-step because I suck at cooking... I mean I love to cook (scrambled eggs, pancakes, bacon) but I suck at other foods plus I cannot eat 'greasy' foods..

Also, how about a meal involving rice and mushrooms??? mmmm........tomatoe sauced rice..........arrargararararahahghghga....

Hey Filipino-
Are you philipino? biggrin.gif Mmm...tomato-sauced rice...

First off, are you using healthy oils to cook with? Olive, coconut (here's the thread for coconut: http://acne.org/mess...pic.php?t=22708 )

If you really want recipes, you should buy some healthy living recipe books! They're the best resource out there. There are just so many things to be done with cooking. There is no true step-by-step methodology to cooking. You can do whatever you want! How do you think recipes were written in the first place? Experimentation! Look into getting a good set of herbs and spices if you haven't already.

Look to add raw olive oil to salads, ACV to your dishes, and raw garlic when you can. Staples like that can really help your body's balance.

Just remember that for nutrient intake, the best-worst is:
*Raw
*Steamed
*Boiled (microwave too I think)
*Fried
*Burnt to a crisp with carcinogens out the yin-yang.

LOL...I hope so!!!

Actually, you can make rice in a pot on the stove as well, but you need to watch it until it's finished.

Stay away from the minute rice. I'll have to rain blows upon your house if you touch that stuff Filipino!

Making rice in a pot isn't that hard. the general amount of water should be approximately 1:1 water:rice, but that's for a moderate amount of rice. Just watch the pot until the rice looks "cooked" and then turn off the power. and let it sit for a while to dry. So simple. lol.

Well, if you're clumsy like me, it'd be better to get the cooker because it's automatic...one button and it cooks itself. When I first started cooking rice, it was the measurements that tripped me. Here's a tip mi mama taught everyone in mi familia:

http://srv.fotopages.com/?o=920846&t=2
--1. Scoop the amount of rice you want, usually cookers come with measurements but it really doesn't matter, use a cup even.
--2. Over the sink, run it through water five to six times, or rinse until the water's clear. It's to get rid of the excess starch.
--3. Then once your rice is clean, pour water in and using your finger rest it on top of the rice and make sure the water reaches your first index finger crease or joint. (See image.)
--4.Then place the pot in cooker, press the button and you're set. Wait till it turns off or you can keep it warm until you're ready to eat.

Also, what are some names of simple-to-make mushroom foods?? I really don't need to know how to cook it,I will experiment it like the rice!!!

You need to add a little more water for brown rice as it take longer to cook.

?? You mean...names of mushrooms or names of dishes?? lol. I'm confused now. My favorite mushrooms are those.......ummm.....DEUNG GU! I forget what the english name is (know it Maya?). Y'know those big black asian mushrooms that you buy dry, so you have to soak them in water before cooking. Yum.
