Stress and Your Skin

Almost everyone is aware that stress is bad, and most of the time it’s inevitable that we have to face stressful situations. It usually causes headaches, difficulty concentrating, and even nausea in some cases. However, it also causes so many problems for your body internally, which can take a serious toll on your skin. That is why self-care should be a top priority.
Skin is our largest organ, so there is a plethora of ways that stress can aggravate it. Stress triggers skin to be extra sensitive and releases cortisol and other hormones that make your body produce more oil. This could also intensify other issues you may already be suffering from.

That’s right, any condition that is associated with inflammation including acne, psoriasis, dermatitis, and so many more can be aggravated when you are stressed. This is due to the production of stress hormones and the way they create pro-inflammatory molecules in your body. This can produce redness, swelling, and rashes on your s…

Spicy-glazed Roasted Chicken: Slower Cooking for Tender Results

SLOW-ROASTED CHICKEN This standard recommendation for roasting chicken is to preheat your oven to 500°F and turning the heat down to 350°F as soon as you put the chicken in. This high-temp approach guarantees crispy skin and a relatively speedy cook time. In this case, we abandon that method in favor of a lower, slower approach. Cooking the chicken at 300°F lets the whole bird, especially the breasts, cook gently to maximize tenderness. At that temperature, it’s easy to not accidentally blow past the recommended pull temp for the breasts of 157°F . ROASTED POTATO SIDE The perfect accompaniment for this chicken is cooked with the chicken. Small Yukon Gold potatoes are tossed with the remaining gochujang glaze (diluted with a little more oil) and cooked along with the chicken in the cast iron pan. By the time the chicken is done cooking, they have achieved a creamy, soft texture from cooking slowly in the oil and chicken fat that will drain into the pan. They are, in essence, potatoes

Taco Tomatoes

I love taco anything. Taco salmon, taco chicken, taco flavored potatoes. I love the seasoning. Plus making it yourself is even better. You can find a DIY Taco Season on my blog. Just type it in the search bar. But enjoy these. So good.  Because it is winter you can step it up a notch by hollowing the center and stufffing them with the taco meat and cheese and make them for about 20 minutes on 375. Than top with sour cream or yogurt, jalepenos, green onions and salsa. Enjoy!!

Double Trouble Tabatas
TABATA ONE Move 1: Mountain Climbers Begin in a tall plank position, hands stacked just below your shoulders.Run your knees into your chest, alternating legs. Keep your core engaged.Mod: Take the running out by slowly alternating your knees to your chest, or do them elevated.Move 2: Jump Switch Lunges Begin in a strong lunge position, making sure your front knee is in line with your front foot, and when you bend it stays at a 90-degree angle and the knee doesn’t end up beyond the toe.Your back heel is lifted and is in line with your back knee.Jump yourself up and switch positions, landing softly and with good form. You can get your arms involved for balance and speed.Mod: If jumping isn’t a good idea for your knees but you are okay with lunges, perform forward reverse lunges (that’s a forward lunge, followed by a reverse lunge with the same leg) and alternate sides to target all the same muscles. You can also perform basic lunges in place, or walking lunges. Rememb…
