KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

A Healthier Reuben Sandwich

 
Bathing-suit season is right around the corner, ladies. If you've been stuffing your face with green beer and corned beef brisket all weekend, now is not the time to make leftover reuben sandwiches smothered with cheese and salad dressing and fried in butter. Let's lighten things up a bit, shall we?

Start by replacing the rye or pumpernickel bread with low-cal whole grain bread, the thinner the better. Instead of slathering on butter, spray a pan or griddle with non-stick spray. Fill your sandwich with a few slices of leftover corned beef and saurkraut. If you absolutely have to have a spread on your sandwich, skip the Thousand Island dressing and use nonfat Greek yogurt. You can always jazz up the yogurt with lemon juice and spices. You might fight me on this next one, but skip on the cheese. If you absolutely can't control yourself, use lowfat mozerella. Lightly toast the sandwich on both sides until golden brown and crispy.

  1. I can get into all of the ingredients of a Reuben sandwich, except for the bread. I've never developed an appreciation for rye or pumpernickel.

  2. Rye is a little hard for me to like, but I'm good with pumpernickel.

  3. Thanks for this. Reuben sandwiches are my favorites, and if I can save some calories - well, I'll like them even more.
