So things around here finally seem to be getting back to normal. With all the craziness, I haven’t really been focusing on my diet like I should be so I am getting back into that!
I am now 100% sure the cause of my many years of acne, it’s DAIRY! I know this because when I did the vegan diet, my skin completely cleared up more than it had ever been, during the move and the process of getting settled, I started eating dairy and I broke out like crazy! I went back off of it and my skin cleared back up, in just a matter of days!
I’m very happy and relieved to finally know the cause, and I’m also trying not to be bitter towards the countless number of dermatologists and doctors I’ve seen and the countless number of pills and creams I’ve tried. If you suffer from acne, I highly recommend going off dairy!
Okay, onto the food! So I’m back to my no/little dairy, no red meat, low carb diet and tonight I made:
Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Chicken Meatballs with a simple salad and sauteed zucchini
These were so amazing and easy to make, I used fresh basil which makes all the difference in the world! The salad dressing was goddess dressing from Trader Joe’s and yes, there is feta cheese on my salad but that’s the only dairy I had all today and probably will be the only dairy I have for the next week. The zucchini is seasoned with olive oil, parsely and basil. It didn’t need any salt at all.
Here are a couple other things I made during the last month:
Zucchini “pasta” with meatballs and marinara and Parmesan cheese
Baked fish with herbs and butter, sweet potato fries and asparagus
If you guys ever want the recipe for anything I make, then please let me know! I’d love to share it with you!
