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.

Vegan Bacon and Egg Breakfast Sandwich

Vegan Bacon and Egg Breakfast Sandwich

It's been a while for Vegans to really enjoy a breakfast sandwich, but thank goodness, here we are. It hadn't even occurred to us how much we missed them until we made this one...

To make 2 sandwiches:
6 oz of firm tofu, drained (1/2 traditional packaged tofu)
6 strips of Fake Bacon (check out our recipe in the link)
2 bagels, english muffins, croissants, OR 4 pieces of whole wheat toast
2 tbsp Vegan Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp lemon juice
4 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp tumeric
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Drain tofu well and press to remove excess water. Gently cut into 1/2" slices. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Combine flour and spices.

Toss tofu slices in flour mixture until well coated. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place tofu slices on sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes per side or until Tofu is yellow in colour and feels firm to the touch. Remove from oven and let cool briefly.

In a skillet, combine Worcestershire sauce, olive oil and lemon juice. Heat until bubbling gently, and add in tofu slices. Sautee until tofu seems darker in colour and the edges are crunchy.

Place egg on toasted bagel and add Vegan Bacon and Vegan cheese, if desired. Daiya works well for this.
