Yummy Spicy Burrito

Here's an amazing recipe I came up with, and anyone can eat it. So if you're looking for a healthy meal night, without the icky healthy taste to it that everyone can enjoy, here's my wonderful recipe that you should probably double if you're making for more than two-three people (I make this for two, and it lasts a few days, but it's good enough to eat over and over again):

Ingredients:
1 cup brown rice
1 cup lentils
Chili Powder and Garlic Powder
World Table Roasted Tomato Chipotle Roja Salsa(Found at Walmart by the taco sauce)
Mission Wraps Jalapeno Cheddar or Sun Dried Tomato and Basil (Also found at Walmart in the bread section by bagels and such)
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 or 4 (per wrap) Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders(This can be found at Target by Morning Star Products or even Krogers or a wholefood store) (Can be substituted for chicken if you're not a vegetarian though)

Directions:
In one pan, bring two cups water to a boil. Add one cup brown rice, cover, and simmer on low heat for about 45 to 50 min. Make sure to keep covered the entire time till it hits 45 min. or it won't cook right, and if you open it up and see plump rice, it's done. In another pan, bring another two cups water to a boil. Add lentils and cover. Cook for as long as you cook rice, then drain lentils (I cook rice and lentils at the same time, in different pans). *Reason to keep in separate in pans is so that they cook fully and don't get in each other's ways, but can be added together once both are cooked.*

Once the two are combined, season with as much chili powder and garlic powder as you want, keeping in mind to keep stirring the seasonings around. Now add your shredded cheddar cheese. (If you'd like the cheese melted, put season rice and lentils in a bowl, add cheese, and heat in microwave till cheese melts)

Next, cook Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders in oven as directions state. When those are done, add rice and lentil mixture onto your wraps, then add your Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders, then add your salsa. Enjoy!

~If you're looking for less spiciness, choose Mission Wraps Sun Dried Tomato and Basil or regular Tortilla Wraps. Also, choose regular salsa, because chipotle is very spicy

~If you're looking for another variation, pick up World Table Salsa Verde (Basically a salsa made with tomatillas. It's one of my favorites.) And use mozzarella cheese.

~Another variation is using Ortega taco sauce, and making it taste like a taco.

~Also, Gardein is the best mock meat stuff out there. It's vegan. Plus, it's made with ingredients that are good for you. You can check Gardein out here on their website: http://www.gardein.com/index.php

If you have any questions, post them in the comments. Thanks and hope you enjoy another tasty recipe!

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…
