Layered Cake with Buttercream Frosting

This post is a combination of recipes that ended up working really well together. I wanted to try a "naked" cake frosting technique, so excuse the aesthetics above as this is still a work in progress. Below are the links to each recipe, my tweaks, and my reviews.

Hair Care Review: Living Proof

I've recently become obsessed with Living proofB hair products. I have always had long and healthy hair - despite countless color applications and processing. Back in May of 2017, I had to cut my hair short because, I believe, the round of prednisone I was on for two months destroyed it. It could also be… Continue reading Hair Care Review: Living Proof

LEAP Diet Phase 2

After struggling through phase 1 with only 2 proteins and 2 veggies (I ate a lot of bananas and pecans), I must say that it was well worth it.

Dirty Banana Cheese Cake (Tweak)

This is easily one of my favorite recipes. When I first made this for a dinner party, with only myself being on SCD, everyone enjoyed it. I then proceeded to eat a slice for breakfast every single morning until it was gone.

Native Deodorant (Review)

I intend to update this review at a later time with some more thorough opinions, but for the time being... I've been using Native DeodorantB (Coconut Vanilla) for a little over a week now. It's been pretty hot in Philly. I've gone to work. I've exercised. I've sun-bathed. I've sweat a good bit. It goes… Continue reading Native Deodorant (Review)

If you're on SCD and are a recovering chocolate junkie, please immediately drop whatever it is that you are doing and make this recipe because your life is… Continue reading “Chocolate” Syrup (Review)

Grain Free Nut Crunch Cereal (Review)

I made thisB a while ago and it is still fresh. I eat it as a crunchy snack in between meals. It definitely fills the crunchy cereal void, though it did not hold up very well with almond milk add in. You will need almond flour, pecan flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, milk,… Continue reading Grain Free Nut Crunch Cereal (Review)
