Hi Ladies! This is a video that shows how I mix my Cantu Shea Butter concoction.
*This is not by any means healthy, but sometimes you have to enjoy yourself. : )
Mac and Cheese is one of my favorite foods! I am not the best at making it, but I think I do ok. Below is my mac and cheese recipe.
This recipe will make one large aluminum roasting pan.
The recipe can be cut in half to accommodate a smaller portion.
I hope you enjoy your mac and cheese. If you have any questions or concerns, please click the Comments link above or Contact Me.
So, I called my cousin looking for my favorite eye make-up remover. She didn't have any, but she asked me if I ever thought about using coconut oil. Well, I am the queen of using coconut oil for my hair and for cooking, and I will even use it on my skin from time to time, but that is it. She started telling me about the other uses for coconut oil that she read about. There are many, many, many uses for coconut oil that I would have never thought about. I think many ladies already know that coconut oil can be good for your hair, but did you know that it can also be used to boost your metabolism?

So, I haven't given an update in a very long time. It has been over five months since I started my challenge and I must say that I have been doing pretty well overall. I did pick up on eating shrimp and fish. I haven't really missed the other meats. The only things I can say that I miss are flavored chicken wings (hot, teriyaki, and lemon pepper) and chicken salad sandwiches from The Honey Baked Ham.
So, I am really wanting to try something different than my twists. Don't get me wrong, I love my twists, but it's really taking a lot of time to twist my hair, so I want to try something different,. Well, I decided to blow my hair out using low heat. I thought it would be a little easier than twisting, but I was wrong. It took alllllllllllll day! Anyway, I did a quick length check just so you can have an idea of how much my hair has grown since June. Remember, I cut my hair in June of 2013.
Below are videos of my hair routine from start to finish!

I just wanted to give a quick update. I have been meat free for 30 days. I think I may do two months, then start incorporating seafood. I am not trying to be a vegetarian, but I do want to give my digestive system a rest. I will give a more detailed post in a few days of my challenge.
I apologize, but I have been really busy. I haven't really been doing anything different from the other days. I am still eating a yogurt for breakfast. Lunch is normally a protein shake or Kashi cereal with almond milk. Dinner is normally soup, fried rice, or salad. I did try something different on last Sunday. I stuffed some sweet peppers with cheese, onions, spinach, and peppers and cooked them. They were pretty tasty! I also stuffed some mushrooms with the same mixture. They were tasty as well. I don't think I will use frozen spinach the next time. It made the mixture too watery. Anyway, I will give you an update tomorrow!
Oh yeah! Tonight I am eating a Veggie Lovers pizza from Pizza Hut!
I apologize for being M.I.A. for the past couple of days.
Dinner-Stir fried vegetables and rice
Breakfast-spinach and artichoke souffle (Penera Bread)
Lunch-Hummus and Ritz baked crackers
Dinner-Mixed vegetables and rice, and hot and sour soup
