Now that the Summer months are here, it is imperative to take extra care in protecting our hair from damage. I normally have dry damaged hair that easily gets tangled, so I am always on the lookout for something that can ease my suffering. If you color your hair you need to be extra careful in choosing your products as you don't want to strip the color and add to the damage. Keywords to look for are "Sulfate-Free", "Phthalate-Free", "No Silicone" and "No Synthetic Ingredients".  We want hair care that nourishes your strands with rich oils and yummy nut butter like shea and cacao! 

For me, Maria, this dish brings me back to my childhood. My mom would make this for me all the time when I was younger. Now that I am older and more health-conscious, I need to replace certain things, like condiments that are organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, NO-MSG and also needing to find ways to veganize certain dishes. 

I like using tempeh as the main ingredient in this dish. Tempeh is less processed than tofu, contains more protein, fiber, and also loaded with gut-friendly probiotics. 

Summer is all about the intensity of the light. We associate it with fun, freedom and abundant energy. It is the time when we want to be outdoors to soak up the sun's warmth.

Because we are skincare fanatics, we also want to protect our skin from any unnecessary UV damage. Examples of sun damage can show up as dark spots, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and rough skin. But you don't need to shun the sun in the hopes of looking young forever! Having a proper skincare regimen, being diligent on applying your sunscreen, even on cloudy days, and including plenty of antioxidants in your diet will help to guard your skin against the damaging effect of the sun.
