I want to talk about acne. Mostly because it’s pissing me off and if I complain to my friends, they just get mad. So I write in my diary instead. Aka, my blog.

Acne is stupid. And no, nothing has worked. I thought long and hard about going to a naturopath, but I just can’t afford that. I spent my money on more fun things, like trips to exotic places. Instead, I choose to try to ignore the acne since there seems to be nothing I can do about. The acne is all on my jaw line now, meaning it mostly has to do with my hormones. And since I stopped lifting heavy and CrossFitting multiple times a day, my hormones have started to calm down. I’ve lost weight, my body is remembering it’s feminine, and my cystic acne has calmed A BIT. I emphasize a bit, because it’s not much. I posted this picture below the other day and people thought my face looked great. Little do they know, I have makeup on that smudges off on EVERYTHING. Like, seriously, everything. It’s disgusting. I’m astonished I have a boyfriend that will put up with that. Poor man. But I wanted to show you that I still do have plenty of acne. I’ve obviously just good at makeup, good lighting, and well, contorting my face to look like I have none. Meaning, make myself look like an idiot.

It’s like a fun house up in here.

So in conclusion, my acne is not really getting better. I just wanted this to be clear since I haven’t talked about it as much anymore. I’m trying to put my energy of hatred for my skin into other things. Like, oh I don’t know, just being happy. And loving other people. And supporting my friends.

Boneless Pork Short Rib Breakfast Tacos

5 Stars 4 Stars 3 Stars 2 Stars 1 Star

4.9 from 32 reviews

  • Yield: 2-4 1x



For the “tortillas”

For the shredded pork

  • 2 pounds boneless pork short ribs
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • salt, to taste

For the toppings

  • 56 strips of bacon
  • 1 (6-8 ounce) can of green chiles
  • 23 tablespoons hot sauce (or your choice)
  • chopped green onions


  1. First, this recipe will start in the crockpot.
  2. Add short ribs to the crockpot. Pour maple syrup on top of them, along with garlic powder and salt. (I didn’t put any liquid in the crockpot because the fat will leak out and protect it from burning)
  3. Cook on low for 8-10 hours.
  4. When you wake up the next day, remove the pork ribs from the crockpot, shred them and pour some of the excess liquid from the crockpot over the shredded pork for extra flavor.
  5. Now make the tortillas. In a medium bowl, whisk together the tortilla ingredients until smooth.
  6. Place a large skilletover medium-high heat, pour ingredients into the pan to create a pancake size tortilla. I would pour on the liquid, pick up the skillet to roll it around and flatten out the tortilla even more. Cook on both sides for just about a minute per side.
  7. Once all your tortillas are done (this made about 8-10 tortillas for me), place bacon on the skillet or oven to cook on both sides, cool then roughly chop.
  8. Then mix together the green chiles and hot sauce in a bowl, place in microwave for 1:30-2:00 minutes or until hot. And then chop the green chiles.
  9. Now load up each tortilla. Shredded pork, green chiles, bacon, then green onions. Then eat it.
  10. Happy times.

    Hey girl. I used to have the same acne! Listen to me when I tell you what works. Firstly. I only consume high fat dairy (Greek yogurt cheese) I use natural make up. I use aveeno calming naturals face wipes most nights- they really work and my using water to wash my face all the time really stops my skin from drying out. Some nights I do an oil pulling method which is amazing. And a couple times a week I do a scrubi make myself – coconut oil/honey/baking soda – all natural organic stuff!! I also use straight honey as a mask. The oil pulling is easy- olive oil and castor oil with a bit of tea tree. Slather it on over make up and run face cloth under hot water,
    Squeeze excess and lay over face till it cools-
    All your make up will come off and face will feel amazing. All of these things I’ve mentioned have made my skin amazing but you know what? I had to see a dermatologist
    (Who was my BFs dad) and he EXTRACTED all of the years of sebum built up under my skin. It was painful! It really hurt a lot. But there was no other way. Now I still extract once a week to maintain but i have maybe had 5 pimples in 3 yeaRs since the major extraction. I have no scars from the extraction and I haven’t had to go back because I learned to do it myself. Oh also big thing please never touch your face! Your fingers are so oily. I use tp as a barrier. I use vitamin e mixed with coconut oil as moisturizer as well as Jason’s age renewal vit e cream- 10 bucks ! My skin is perfect now. You’d never guess I had terrible hormonal acne for 10 years plus I look way younger than I am. Honey man, I’m telling ya! Honey and coconut oil. If you do all these things I bet you cash money money your skin will be clear.

    Hi Julie, I started having acne when I was 30… never had a spot before. I hated my skin as well. Tried everything and nothing seemed to help.

    Then I came across 3 dirt cheap home remedies that changed my life:

    1) I did a water fast. 2 days very easy to digest food (like veg soups, steamed veg, some steamed fish,…), 5 days just water and if you want hearb teas, if you feel weak a teaspoon of honey, maybe some stained veg broth. 2 days built up. Pretty much common in Germany where I come from, we do fast since I can think and nobody finds it weird but knows about the potent healing qualities of fasting.

    2) In order for the fast to really work or to get your body in self healing mode so that it can repair and get rid of all toxins you won’t get around a delicate topic: enemas. Yes mam. Sounds worse than it is actually and the healing properties are amazing. So you do a water (or ACV, or baking soda) enema on your second easy to digest food day. If you really want to get it right you do 2 enemas of 2 litres of water. One with water of the ph value 7,5 till max 8,5 (add baking soda and himalaya salt and test) – this will help scrubbing off the stuff from your intestinal walls, then one with a toxin absorbing agent like charcoal or spirulina or chlorella powder and then a last one with ACV to get some happy bacteria back in your colon.

    3) During your 5 days of fasting you’ll do coffee enema every day. This is essential as the stuff that causes your spots are fat soluable toxins of some kind. Your liver will have to work extra shifts to get rid of them once you are in overdrive detox mode because you fast. It is actually already otherwise it would not have to evacuate some of the stuff in form of these lousy pimples in your face… So the coffee enemas will super upcharge your detox capacities. They say that one coffee enema is like 3 days of fasting… and you are fasting already 5 days!

    So this protocol will be tough but it’s just 5 days of your life really and it’ll heal your skin almost 100% sure. It’s well worth the effort and I think that everybody should do a waterfast at least once a year. If we did our social health systems would cost dramatically less, so many conditions can be healed simply by allowing our body wisdom to work and to heal itself. And this is what we do when we fast.

    Wish you all the best and let me know if you have questions.

    So idk if anyone has already said this, or maybe you do this already. If you have hormonal issues, It certainly won’t cure your acne altogether, but may help. Do you wash your face immediately when you finish working out? I don’t mean drive home and shower, I mean when you finish sweating, go to the bathroom and wash or at least rinse the sweat off your face. This may help because any nasty toxins you sweat out are sitting on your face until you get to shower. I started doing this and it helped my complexion. Regardless of the few spots around your jawline, you are a beautiful, talented young woman and your boyfriend is a lucky man. Cheers, and thanks for the delicious recipes.

    Hi! I read your blog and I know it was awhile ago that you posted this but I was actually looking for egg free breakfast’s and wasn’t expecting pictures of your acne lol. However I wanted to get in touch with you because I have delt so much with that same issue!!! I use to wear so much makeup! I gave you my website and on there you can read my story. However, because it’s actually hormonal your body is lacking progestrone. When I saw your pictures it’s exactly where my acne was. I decided to go to a naturopath dr because I wanted to make sure I got the right treatment. Sure enough, I was lacking progestrone. My face is super clear now thanks to that and the Arbonne products that I use! Now my current job on my skin is getting rid of the scars. If you want. Ire information please feel free to contact me. I will be happy to help you! 🙂

    Hey! I’m not an avid reader of your blog, but I check in for recipes from time to time when I need new ones because my hubs keeps requesting the same old things and I need to mix it up a bit. I happened to check in today and I’m glad I did because I too suffer from acne. Let me say first STAY AWAY from Accutane. It will destroy your liver. Let me say second, have you heard of Rodan and Fields? Its a skincare company by the same dermatologists who created ProActiv. They have created the “Lexus” of acne treatments. Their skincare regimen Unblemish, is clinically designed to treat all aspects of the acne process. It consists of 3 steps, a wash to reduce inflammation and clear pores, one of two toners, to either clear pores or treat post-acne marks, and a lotion to kill acne causing bacteria. Plus a oil control sunscreen lotion! These steps are super effective. I am happy to share my own before/after pics but you can also check out my website or reply to me!
