Skin Check

After Covid halted non emergency doctor visits and a few reschedules later, I was finally able to go to my dermatologist appointment. This was the first time I received a full body skin check. 

At the first of the year, I visited the dermatologist with a concern. I had a tiny red spot on my forehead that would not go away. It turned out to be a minor type of skin cancer called “basal cell Carcinoma”. I had it removed then it was stressed to me to come back and have a full body scan. So I did.

The visit was pleasant and painless but not what I expected. I thought the check would be more thorough. There were no bright lights or magnifying glasses. I had to undress to my under clothes and wait. The dermatologist entered the room and quickly looked through my scalp and worked her way down to my toes. It took no more than 3 minutes for the complete skin check. I’m guessing if she saw some concerns she would have taken a closer look. 

I am happy to announce that I had no questionable spots. She said I only had sun freckles and lectured me on my sun exposure and the need for sun screen to protect my skin from sun damage.

Speaking of sun damage. The dermatologist introduced me to a highly recommended supplement called “Heliocare”. It’s made to reduce the signs of aging and protect the skin from damages caused by the sun. It’s a sun protector that works from the inside out. 

“Where was this stuff 30 years ago?” 

Heliocare is a natural supplement with no side effects and is safe enough for anyone to take. It can be found over the counter in the vitamin section. I think it is costly at a price around 25.00. I was advised to take two capsules a day during the summer with one being taken within an hour to going out into the sunshine. During the Winter I will only need to take one a day. 

We spend a lot of time at the beach and love spending the days relaxing outdoors. These will come in handy for sun lovers like us. Yes, us. My husband plans to take this supplement as well. 

Maybe we can now stop aging? Ha, I wish!

Buffalo Cauliflower Caesar Wraps

I have been trying to eat healthy for years now. Well, I don’t just try, I have actually done pretty good at it. There are days I will eat a meal that is not on my diet and some would say it unhealthy but in reality, no food is “unhealthy” unless your body reacts in an unhealthy way. I have just chosen to try to eat more, let’s say, “natural” foods. Due to health reasons, I had to go on a low sodium diet and have to stay away from processed foods which includes can foods too. So far it’s working for me and I feel great! 

I have also given up caffeine (unless I eat a piece of chocolate). I have limited my bread and sweets and have been trying to eat more vegetables. For the record, I am not a vegetarian. I love meat. I have just been trying to find ways to incorporate more veggies into my diet because, frankly, I am not a fan of vegetables unless its in a salad or a tomato sandwich. 

But lately, I have been addicted to buffalo cauliflower caesar wraps. It’s a great alternative to buffalo chicken. I’m absolutely hooked on this stuff. 
I bought a fresh head of cauliflower and broke it into small pieces. I will put a handful into a ziplock baggie and toss it around with some buffalo sauce. I use the “Sweet Baby Rays’ brand because they are a favorite in bbq sauce as well. 

After I toss the cauliflower, I dump it into my air fryer and cook it for 15 minutes at 390 degrees. It comes out crispy and delicious.

Then I place in on a flour tortilla on top of a bed of lettuce and add a dash of creamy Caesar dressing. I use “Kens” dressing. It’s the best. 

I can’t say it is any more healthy than a Caesar chicken wrap but it’s a good way to to skip the meat and eat some veggies.

Go ahead and try it! But beware, it can be spicy.
