Did you know??
Although using avocados and bananas are all the buzz now to get soft and shiny hair, all it will get you is a messy kitchen and bathroom. These products are great to help your hair for one day, but the proteins in them are way too big for your hair to absorb. And unless you are going to use them each day (yikes!), then you should head to a beauty supply store and check out some Vegan products that use "hydrolyzed" proteins - proteins from avocados and bananas that actually are small enough to help your hair.

Ginger Mango Smoothie

 Photobucket

This Ginger Mango smoothie was a great idea that we decided to test out a few days ago when we were looking at the leftovers in our fridge.  Per usual, our eyes eat much more than our mouths, so we always have more food than we know what to do with.  After a week of plowing through the food in our fridge, it seems we've only touched the surface.  And, of course, the kale is (unfortunately) always one of the first greens to start to wilt.  Whenever that happens, out comes the blender.  Green smoothies are a great way to use up your green veggies that are borderline questionable.  Anyways, today after getting back from the gym, what more could I ask for?  After the gym is a great time to have a smoothie, as it has all your nutrients; if you are a protein-shake person, you can mix your shake right in.  Plus, they are quick to make, and the quicker you eat after the gym, the better.  Enjoy!

1 tsp fresh grated ginger
1 macintosh apple, diced
1 cup, kale
3 ribs of lettuce
1 navel orange
1 mango, diced
2 ice cubes
1/2 cup water

Beginning with vegetables, add all the incredients and blend until smooth.
