Purity for The Skin

Hello! Recently I have had a try of a few different products for skin care (body not face) and stumbled across these wonders. “Frank” is a naturally made body scrub of coffee grounds, brown sugar, essential oils, orange extract and other beautiful ingredients that you rub all over your body and literally have the worlds softest skin as a result. It’s beautiful. 250 grams of the magic is only $12.00 and available online only. Just google “frank coffee scrub”.

Another item I tested was pure coconut oil. I tend to get really dry skin from being in the chlorinated pools so much so this is a nice treat to my skin. I found it just at my regular supermarket in the Asian foods isle. A big jar like this was $6.00 but I’ve just now seen it online for cheaper through organic sellers. So have a shop around. Rub it all over your body in the shower and go about your usual routine letting the water run over it for a few minutes. Get a pH neutral wash and rinse off to get the residue oil off your body. It will leave your skin beautifully soft. I’m very impressed. I tried it in my hair, but it was just a tad too hard to get out.

Enjoy bloggers!

Meal Preparation + Grocery List (Suitable for dairy intolerant, lactose intolerant)

Hi everyone, today I’m going to explain how I have prepared my meals for the next month. I like to have everything per-organised and a vegemite sandwich does not cut it for lunch for me. Its great to cook your meals ahead of time, you save stressing out and being under pressure to cook something healthy, quickly, so enjoy your cooking time and your meals with an easier approach to organisation in the kitchen.

So here we go:

I have made 28 meals today: of 4 different kinds, all using turkey mince (heart healthy, low low low fat and high high high protein!!!!). My meals are:

1. Cantonese turkey mince with rice and tortillas and broccolini
2. Spaghetti bolognese with rice
3. Mexican flavoured turkey mince with tortillas
4. Chicken thigh Schnitzels with vegetables

These meals include protein, carbohydrates, and 4 serves of vegetables (altogether), are low in fat and low GI (keep you fuller for longer).

I have uploaded a picture below of the ingredient list, the whole lot cost me less than $50.00 in groceries. Bargain!!!

I had 3 pans going on the stove at once, but to simplify it:

For: 1. Cantonese turkey mince with rice and tortillas and broccolini
2. Spaghetti bolognese with rice
3. Mexican flavoured turkey mince with tortillas:

– Brown mince with an onion in a pan on medium heat.
– Once brown, Add desired flavourings (e.g: bolognese add tinned tomatoes and mushrooms, for Mexican mince add taco seasoning and BBQ sauce, for Cantonese turkey mince add the Cantonese flavoured sauce).
– Meanwhile boil the rice and potatoes (in separate pans), they take about 6 minutes or so.
– steam the vegetables you choose over the boiling pot in a steamer.
– spoon all meals into separate containers and freeze till your ready to take them out for your meal!

For: 4. Chicken thigh Schnitzels with vegetables:
– put chicken thighs in oven on 190 degrees Celsius for 35 minutes.
– put into allocated containers with potatoes and brocollini, and freeze till your ready to take them out for your meal!

Enjoy!!
