Becoming a Vegetarian...

I've been a vegetarian for about two years now, and the best advice I could give to anyone looking into becoming one is: Educate yourself.


That is the most important piece of advice I could give anyone. I tried to educate myself about nutrition before I became one, but I didn't do a good job at it. So what resulted from it? I lost 15 pounds (I was little to begin with). I went through iron anemia, which isn't fun. It makes you feel exhausted 24/7, and you just don't have the will to do anything. BUT, it's not what it seems. After I educated myself some more, I became better with my diet. I don't suffer any health problems; I've actually seen a change in my health. I have more energy, and I feel better. But it's still hard for me to gain weight, but my weight is in the healthy range, I promise.


Now where am I going with this? Well, I'd like to give you some information you probably didn't know about us vegetarians. Well, first of all, we can't eat marshmallows, or anything containing gelatin. Why? Look it up yourself. Not all of us try and shove our vegetarianism on others. I could care less about other people's diets and how they want to live their life. We can't eat anything made by Hostess. They make their products with beef fat. (Made me kind of sad when I checked the ingredients).


Now you're probably thinking: Why are you posting about being a vegetarian?
Well, first of all, I'm thinking of posting recipes quite often, and pretty much anyone can eat those recipes. It's not like you can't substitute things in, if you wish to. Or if you'd like to have some healthy choices, they can benefit you that way too.


So overall, I promise I won't shove vegetarianism in your face. That's not my goal. My goal is to show people that vegetarianism isn't all that bad, and some of our recipes are pretty delicious. If you try some of them out, I bet you might see in a different light. Now am I saying you should become one? No. I could care less whether you become one or not.


Anyways, I will post some recipes, so I hope you look forward to adding some new things to your recipe box!

So I came up with my own high calorie shake, which is very vanilla tasting. For anyone like me who's looking to gain weight but not in a super sugar, junk food way, here's a recipe you will enjoy. And you can change it in anyway you want.

Here's my version:
Super Calorie Shake Recipe:
1 cup Stonyfield Organic Very Vanilla Yoghurt (Found at Walmart, but you can use whatever you like)
1 cup Bolthouse Farms Vanilla Chai Tea (Can be found at Walmart by Soymilk section.)
3 scoops Vanilla Ice Cream (I use Madagascan Vanilla found at Target)
Protein powder (I use brown rice protein powder)
Silken Tofu (1-2 slices, depending how much/less you want. Or just leave out altogether.)

Directions:
Obviously you would add altogether and blend.


This usually adds up to near 700 calories. (I usually guesstimate, but it's in the general range.)
But you can add/change anything you like. This is just a recipe I use and love.


Anyways, do you have any super calorie shake recipes you'd like to share?

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
