Day 2 Brown rice with stewed chicken #danilleanteam


This video shows how I cooked my lean lunch on Day 2 of my health journey.






I enjoy eating brown rice, it is healthy and filled with fibre.

Today's lunch consisted of a salad, brown rice and stewed chicken.

Brown rice recipe

1/3 cup brown rice
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tsp chopped bell peppers
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp margarine

Bring hot water to a boil.  Add salt and margarine.
Wash brown rice and add to boiling water.
Allow to boil for 35 minutes.  Add bell peppers when most of the water has evaporated.

Stewed chicken recipe

2 chopped chicken breasts
coconut oil
1 Tsp brown sugar
Green seasoning
1/4 cup water

Chicken can be seasoned with green seasoning a couple hours before cooking.

Add hummus and 1/4 cup of water.
Cover pot and let steam for 10 to 15 minutes.

Review: MAC Prep and Prime Fix+ spray





 I consider myself to be more of a 'drugstore beauty' kind of woman.

So when a good friend suggested this product after I complained to her about my inability to keep a perfectly set made up face after one working day, I was hesitant at first.

It's MAC.

MAC's prices are what I consider to be astronomical.  For the United States resident who may be reading this blog post, I have to multiply any $US MAC price by approximately 6.2 to figure out the price I would pay in Trinidad and Tobago dollars on the MAC website.  Our local MAC store may sell at prices up to 7 or 8 times the $US MAC price.

Yikes.

However, after about 6 months, I decided to take the plunge, buy the Prep and Prime Fix+ product and just use it sparingly.

I was disappointed.

Why? The results were superb.  This meant that I was now hooked on a pricey product.

I also like the easy lock spout so you can be comfortable carrying it around and not having to worry about product spillage.


I use this product sometimes as a primer before I apply makeup, or as a quick spritz after my makeup routine.

It blurs my makeup and makes it softer and slightly dewy.
