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.

Roasted Asparagus

Roasted asparagus has got to be one of the easiest recipes I've ever made-- and it's probably one of the tastiest, as well.  Everything that is delicious about asaragus is magnified when it's roasted, especially when drizzled in olive oil, so what more could you really ask for?  This is a great side dish to a soup (like a French butternut squash bisque) and will get the pickiest eater to enjoy asaparagus!

1 lb asparagus
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp coarse sea salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Cut and rinse asparagus.

Line foil on baking sheet, and drizzle olive oil on it.  With a brush, spread olive oil over baking sheetand dash salt over sheet evenly.

Roll asparagus around the oil one at a time until each is evenly coated with oil and salt.

Roast for 10-15 minuts (or more) depending on thickness of stalks and how tender you prefer them.  Note:  The tips of the asparagus will get brown, but don't let them burn!
