GF for broke college kids

Ask me anything   Submit Ideas  
Just like you, I'm in college and always broke. I'm 24 and was diagnosed with IBS, gluten intolerance, and a casein intolerance. Awesome.

I was just so tired of looking up recipes online or even in recipe books and finding that everything takes about 300 different ingredients that I don't have and would end up wasting because I can't use it all at once. That's ok, with creativity and desperation, I have a few tricks up my sleeve!!

> Ooh, also, all of the recipes that I write/post (excludes reblogging) should be great if you live in high altitude. I'm making everything at 5,280 feet above sea level, so it should work fine for all of you that live up in the clouds.

Check this out if you or a friend is new to the gluten free concept

ok so i think i finally found a category where tumblr is better than pinterest and that’s food

on pinterest if you search recipes they’re like “try a skinny mom pop! put 3 strawberries on a stick and add a little drizzle of white chocolate! way tasty and way healthier than most dessert options out there!”

tumblr food tag is like “put 15 snickers bars in a bigger fucking snickers bar you beautiful disaster”

The best deodorant you will ever use Seriously. 1/4 teaspoon in each pit and you can sweat your ass off, totally stink-free for like 2 full days. It’s a natural anti-bacterial so those little fuckers won’t multiply and make you smell. Plus it’s cheaper and healthier than any deod you can buy anywhere.
Use equal parts of the following:
-corn starch-baking soda-coconut oil-cocoa butter
With a few drops of whatever essential oil you want, for fragrance. Otherwise it basically just smells like nothing. I use tea tree oil & pine needle oil. Cuz they’re MANLY.
Note - It pretty much turns to liquid if it’s warmer than about 75 degrees. If you want to keep it solid, you can refrigerate it or add a little more corn starch.

Reblogging myself again, cuz I still use this and it’s still awesome

Hmm i may give this a try.

coconut oil on its own does a pretty good job and make you hella smooth
