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.

Breakfast Tofu Scramble


Really, there isn't anything better than a simple "fry up" breakfast. But, it wasn't until recently that we trusted a tofu scramble to do this for us (we aren't really sure of the reason this even took so long for us to try.)

This makes a pretty small portion, so feel free to extrapolate for a bigger, hungrier crowd.

1 cup firm tofu, crumbled (about 1/4 - 1/2 of a typical "block" depending on your crumbles)
1/4 c white onion and green pepper, chopped
1/4 c broccoli
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp turmeric
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce (make sure you get a Vegan brand. Try your local Asian markets - the package will usually say right on the label)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp Canola oil (for frying)
Vegan cheese, if desired

After crumbling your tofu, place in a bowl with the turmeric and nutritional yeast and set it aside while you chop your veggies.

Drizzle the oil in the frying pan, and get it nice and hot (you can test this by splashing a little water at the pan. If it sizzles when it hits the oil, it's hot enough). Sauteè the veggies for a moment, moving them around the pan to get them nice and caramelized. Add the tofu (it should be turning yellow, because of the spices), and add the lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce into the hot pan. You can add a bit of non-dairy butter to the pan too, if you like.

Toast a few pieces of wheat bread while the tofu cooks. Add in your salt and pepper, and brown the tofu and veggies. Add in any non-dairy cheeses if you like, and serve immediately with toast.
