Long delay in posts was because my Macbook was broken, it just wouldn't start up, and when it by chance did, it would die within 2 minutes! ugh, so frustrating. It's all fixed now though :) I seriously could not live without my computer. So this is kind of a beauty/food post. I got some messages in my inbox asking what kind of beauty products I use :) That's very exciting!! And I will tell you :)
For my hair..I use Pantene Shampoo..just plain old Pantene because it seems to wok best for my hair. After I use the Pantene shampoo, I use this Leave in Conditioner
. I love it, it makes my hair sooo soft. And because I have mega frizzy hair, I also use this, Bumble and Bumble DeFrizz This stuff is so amzing. It's not greasy at all!
For Foundation, I use kind of an expensive one, I didn't actually buy it myself, I got it with a gift certificate to Sephora, I seriously don't think I would ever pay $55 for a foundation myself. I use Dior Nude. I am in love with this foundation, best I have ever used! I use it sparingly though because it is so expensive. I don't really wear face powders, fo a blush this is what i have been using for over a year now and probably will be using it for the next 20 years! That's how much I love it. Benefits Thrrob. Great blusher!! and my fave lipstuff is MAC Lipglass in Prrr and Vaseline's Rosy lips.
So that's my basics. I generally just use Drugstore brand mascara and I'm not too much of an eyeshadow girl. If I do wear it, it's MAC eyeshadow in a very light color.
Now onto the food. I have been trying really hard to find the perfect veggie burger. I have tried so many and they have mainly all been alright, but nothing amazing. So tomorrow night I am going to attempt to make a homemade black bean burger. I got the recipe from the Whole Foods website.
These easy-to-assemble burgers can be shaped ahead of time and cooked off when you’re ready to eat.
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or granules
Salt and pepper to taste
Hot sauce to taste
1 to 2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
6 whole wheat hamburger buns
6 green leaf lettuce leaves
2 tomatoes, sliced
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
Put beans in a large bowl and mash well with a fork. Add egg, yellow onion, bread crumbs, oregano, basil, garlic powder, salt, pepper and hot sauce. Mix well to combine then shape into 6 patties.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Arrange patties in a single layer (working in batches, if needed) and cook, flipping once, until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 10 minutes total. Transfer to buns, top with lettuce, tomatoes and red onions and serve.
I'll let you know how they turn out! I had 2 huge green smoothies today! I added ice cubes this time. They are even more delicious with the ice cubes. Tomorrow is another day at work :( Blah. I was thinking about pickin up some of that Amazing Grass superfood that everyone is talking about, so I can add it to my smoothies. Can anyone recommend a flavor? And let me know how they taste? thanks!! Hope you all have a great and healthy week ahead!! xoxoxxo
