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.

    This is one of the first officially paleo recipe that I’ve made and it was absolutely delicious! My husband loved it too. At first the tortillas were a lumpy mess, but all i had to do to correct was turn up the heat and they came out perfectly.. Just like the picture! Love reading your website, thanks!

    I’ve struggled my entire life too, and paleo, low sugar-low carb helped tremendously. However, it’s never been enough. Over the last few years, I’ve done little but research the root cause of this demon along with my autoimmune disease, Hashimoto’s. I’ve put some pieces together and I think this one suggestion will help you with your skin. You have signs of estrogen dominance due to it’s location. I started using DIM and Calcium d-glucarate (the DIM is the primary factor, use the CDG for a kick, it’s great for detox). The fact is we are flooded with estrogens from everywhere and your body (liver) cannot clear them well enough. DIM will help your body metabolize and clear the bad estrogens. It has done wonders for my skin. Doses should start around 150 mg -200 mg. Could give more details if you would like. My derm is now recommending this to her patients. She’s mainstream but more aware of the gut/skin connection etc.

    Lady! Thanks for your transparency. I have struggled with acne on and off since I was a wee tween. I have recently attempted to switch my lifestyle to a paleo lifestyle (difficult for a baker!) and am currently in the midst of the 21 day sugar detox. I have found your website such a help! I made these tortillas this morning for breakfast (I just came across the recipe this morning, so I used eggs and salsa instead of the meat-next time fo sho!), and loved them! Even my husband, who is a pasta, gluten loving fiend, kept asking me, “Really? There is no flour in these? Crazy . . . ” So you have a fan, and possibly another convert. 🙂 Thanks for your voice in this crazy interweb world!

    Where’d you find boneless pork short ribs? I want to make these so bad! Whole foods and Costco don’t carry boneless pork short ribs, and they act like I’m crazy for asking. Thanks in advance if you can tell me. Btw, Rodan and Fields have a unblemish (sp) line and that shit works. They are the same girls who came up with proactive. My husband used the Soothe line and it worked wonders on his rosacea.

      Sprouts. But you can use bone in and just remove it from the bone after cooking!!

    I know it sounds counter productive to put oil on your skin but coconut oil worked for my boyfriend and is a miracle. Try it!! you wont be sorry!

    Love your recipes! I’m in Oz and have just started a protocol through Cyndi Omeara – (she wrote a book Changing Habits/Changing Lives and has a website http://www.changinghabits.com.au. ) I have always suffered from adult acne and now that I am 4 weeks into the protocol, my skin is all cleared up!! I am in shock – but she is worth looking into. Even some foods on paleo can be intolerances for some people which in turn affects your gut, which in turn affects your cells, which affects your thyroid, your liver and then hormones etc. Everything is SO inter-related. This protocol allows me to start understanding which foods irritate and which ones heal! Happy healing!

  9. Heather says:

    Juli! Thank you for rocking my breakfast! I made this last night and woke up drooling/chewing on my pillow. Love your blog, and your recipes. It’s so easy, it’s just insane. Tongue slap your brains out good!

  10. Hope says:

    For the tortilla shells, you think i could substitute almond flour and almond milk. My hubby will not eat anything with coconut or pineapple in the ingredients.
