Chichi has a bunch of great recipe for offal. You can get quality offal meats for the same price as offal meats, so learning to cook good offal meals is a great way to save money while still maintaining a nutrient dense diet.

 

As a sample of one of my favorite's, here is 4 ways to cook beef heart. Grass fed, pastured, organic beef heart from one farmer at my market is $3 a lb, not much more than cafo ground beef.

Great blog for Thai food! A lot of the things are acne friendly, and I linked to tom kha gai, which I'm very fond of. Your Asian Market will carry the harder to find things like lemon grass, kaffir lime, and galangal. Don't substitute powders them for powders! There are a variety of pastes you can buy from markets that are usually entirely whole food ingredients, though I haven't seen one for tom kha gai. Aroy-D in the coconut milk section is just coconut milk and water, and they have a variety of sizes and consistencies. Another thing I've read is substituting peanut oil and peanuts with almond butter and toasted sesame oil in pad thai and other dishes. Haven't tried it yet to really compare, but there are a number of other Thai recipes that you don't have to modify to be acne-friendly.

I don't know if I posted it here before, but Ted Grossbart's Skin Deephas a bunch of good exercises to help deal with stress as it relates to skin disorders. It has some pretty interesting information as far as how powerful the mind is when it comes to health in general! it's a long read, but worth it to really shift your mindset.


In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Well, that was nice, feeling good for three seconds.

 

Horrible acne, back again. I just don't understand it. I had constant acne for almost a year. Literally NO breaks between breakouts. So why was I clear all last week? WHAT HAPPENED? WHAT WAS DIFFERENT? All I can think is that I didn't have dairy.

 

But I was dairy free for SO long and the horrible acne was still there? So what is it? WHAT?

 

I mean I'm happy I experienced a week of clear skin, but it's almost worse and more frustrating because I don't know what I did right--or how to get back there!

It can be really frustrating :( I'm sorry to hear how it comes and goes for you like that. Reading your posts, I think you've said before that BP works for you? Have you considered trying it again? Remember that this state is only temporary, and things are likely to improve! And EFT! I've read stuff about mindfulness and practiced before, but I think EFT really helped me to understand the idea of learning (and I do mean learning -- it's a process!) of letting go of the emotional aspect of acne as best we can. Stay strong Deja!

Read your first post, I felt for your journey. It's frustrating trying product after product, going to expert after expert to no relief. Reading your most recent update, I'm very happy for you! It must be an amazing feeling. The way clogged pores seem to vanish for most people on accutane is amazing -- even the nose sebaceous filaments go away. I hope your school experience is going good as well!
