    Loaded Baked Potato: My Version

    When I was younger, I enjoyed going out to dinner with my parents and siblings at Ponderosa Steakhouse for steak, baked potato, and salad. I always liked to put sour cream on my baked potato. As a working adult, I began eating a baked potato for lunch. However, I learned that using plain yogurt as a replacement for sour cream was a healthier option. I began mixing in a cup of plain yogurt with the baked potato and then commenced to eat the whole thing, skin and all. After my last employment stint, I stopped eating baked potatoes for some reason.

    Body Wash by DreamSideOut

    In 2016, I was diagnosed with atopic dermatitis on my face. One of the things I was told not to do was to wash my face frequently with soap and water. I have oily skin, so I still needed to clean my face about every 4 hours. I tried gentle facial cleansers, but I couldn’t find a gentle cleanser that didn’t have chemicals, preservatives, or artificial scents, all of which can also aggravate atopic dermatitis. I became interested in the mobile lifestyle in 2015 and soon discovered YouTube channels by those who live the mobile lifestyle. One of the individuals I discovered is Rick who has the DreamSideOut channel. In…
