One Pot Rosemary Chicken & Veggies

Image
I It takes less than 30 minutes to make this meal (including all the prep time) and it does so in one single skillet. Since you won’t have to clean up multiple pots and pans, you can spend that extra time catching up with your family instead of slaving away over the dishes in the kitchen. And, since the chicken is roasted over a bed of potatoes and vegetables, it’s a complete meal. You’ll get starches from the sweet potatoes, vitamins and minerals from the broccoli, and protein from the chicken. Sounds just about perfect to me! I love one pot meals. I can make it for meal prep for my husband. And this I can add more sweet potatoes and broccoli to make it perfect for the amount of macros he needs. I hope you enjoy this like I did!

Ingredients 1 tablespoon olive oil1 large sweet potato, diced1 sprig fresh rosemary, chopped1 clove garlic, smashed1/4 cup apple cider vinegar4 (skin-on, bone-in) chicken breasts (about 6 ounces each, skin is removed before serving)1 head broccoli, cut into f…

Sanseti Timeless Skincare Review

Image
Hello Ya’ll! Yes another great skincare review! I am so fortunate to be able to do some great skincare testing. I test a lot of K-beauty from Korea, and healthy skincare on Instagram! This one is a little different. It has marine botanicals that I love in a skincare. I am always looking to out do the La Mer. Which has a powerful marine broth they claim. But with all the chemicals they have in it there is no way it can be healthy for your skin and hormones. And we want science and natural ingredients to help with our skincare needs. Well  I have found it, better than La Mer! With  out the ugly price! Now I used the kit without the cleanser. They sent me the masque instead. I used it yesterday and loved it. Because I have to use a c serum I did incorporate it in my regimen, Worked beautifully. And I used these steps that I will list in order that I used in the morning. If you don’t do treatments ( I do AHA,Retin-A and sleeping masks) this regimen is so hydrating and would be beautiful …

CBD IN YOUR MAKEUP?

Image
While lots of buzzy beauty ingredients are more hype than effective, studies have shown that CBD can be used to address skin issues like acne and dry skin.  It can also be used to help alleviate symptoms caused by conditions like psoriasis and eczema and can be beneficial to almost all skin types. The moisturizing and anti-inflammation properties have made it a desirable additive to moisturizers and oils, but it’s also quickly becoming a go-to ingredient for makeup brands too.

Milk Makeup launched Kush High Volume Mascara, a conditioning hemp-derived formula that promises 15x volume and added thickness. In Milk’s case, cannabis takes the place of beeswax, a common binding component for mascara, and allows for smooth application minus the animal byproduct. They’ve since expanded the good vibes to a lip glaze, lip balm and brow gel, all of which tout cannabis’s moisturizing and calming capabilities. Kiehl’s also has a cannabis-infused product in their lineup, offering a Cannabis Sativa …

Haring B Detox Mouthwash (I love it)

Image
One of the most intriguing and cleansing mouthwash I have ever used.

Did you know that your mouth contains over 300 different strains of bacteria?

Streptococcus Mutans (s.mutans). S.mutans is the main culprit for cavities, plaque, tooth decay and plain old nasty bad breath and even those of us with the best brushing and flossing routines aren’t protected! Brushing your teeth only reaches about 25% of your mouth, meaning the bacteria can hide out and cause plaque build up in those hard to reach places.

A poor diet can also contribute to a build-up of bacteria, as they love to not only feed on sugar but they also use it to help stick to the tooth enamel - which is how plaque is formed. The metabolism of sucrose (sugar) by the bacteria creates lactic acid, which leads to an acidic environment in the mouth, which in turn causes tooth decay.

I used it in the morning and evening. The flavor is differentt. The more you use it the more it is effective on killing germs. When you spit out the …
