I have plenty of friends who claim their hair just does not grow. They try tirelessly to grow it out past its current length but sooner or later find their hair eventually becomes damaged to the point where it needs to be chopped off and they’re back at the beginning. They tell me about all of the expensive products their stylist recommended to them that don’t seem to be doing much at all for them long term. Like anything else regarding our health, the health and vitality of hair begins internally! If we are deficient in various nutrients in our bodies, our external appearance will start to reflect that, hair included.
Are you ready to embark on a gentle, all-natural detox? Looking for an alternative to the ubiquitous (albeit beneficial) juice cleanse?

A little, but very powerful snack that gives you needed energy, this paleo bread is easy and quick to make, even if you only have about 15 minutes!

It can suit many food allergy needs, including those with a gluten intolerance or celiac disease.

Longer, thicker, fuller effect on our eyes is what most of us women crave! There’s something so striking about eyes laced with the dramatic contrast that inky black mascara offers. But did you know in many mainstream mascaras lurk hidden ingredients that are toxic to the human body? It can be so atrocious as to be carcinogenic!
We make choices about color from the moment we wake up in the morning. From the clothing we choose for the day ahead to the color of the lipstick we apply, to the food we eat, color is intrinsically imbedded in our life. Basic color theory allows us to be more deliberate about these choices, to select a powerful color when we need to be at our best, to choose calming tones if we need a bit more self-care that day or to reach for a shade we might not gravitate towards but one that might connect us to something we recognize as lacking in our life.
As we all spend the day reflecting on the significant women in our lives and all the important lessons they’ve taught us, I’d like to spend some time looking back on what my mom failed to teach me.

If you practice a predominantly plant-based lifestyle, then you’ve probably been asked this question over and over again: “Where do you get your protein?” It’s sometimes difficult for people to understand what your sources of protein are, if you aren’t consuming fish, seafood, poultry, cheese, eggs, beef or pork. For people new to this lifestyle, or for those who are simply cutting down on animal-based foods in general, here are eight plant based protein sources you can easily incorporate into your diet on a daily basis.
