When I stop eating cheese and butter a year ago, I found myself reminiscing about a grilled cheese sandwich, my childhood favorite. The first bite was the best, crispy, buttery outside with a warm soft inside. So, here I am missing this sandwich and wondering how can I make a grilled sandwich with no butter or cheese? The first part was crisping the sandwich and the second part was to find a natural plant-based filling other than cheese. Well, coconut oil is my friend, it will crisp the bread just like butter. I’m still working on inside sandwich ideas but I tried almond butter, which is alkaline and plant based. I like it and although it wasn't savory with the raisin bread, it was crisp and tasty. Even my son says it’s a hit. I value my 11 year old son’s opinion. So here you have it “Grilled Almond (Nut) Butter Sandwich.” Next we’ll try grilled avocado sandwich with a thin slice of onion. Let me know your thoughts on this sandwich. Surly you can eat it for breakfast, lunch or a snack.
Curl to the rescue!
Thick in size, short length locs are a styling challenge. They do not have the length for easy pin up styles yet and the thicker than pencil diameter does not bend easy which can make it difficult for curling. Our stylist created this long lasting curl by shampooing with Cornrows & Co. Berry shampoo then roller setting each loc with a medium (pink) rod. To dry the locs you can do an all day air dry or sit under the dryer for a quick set. Once curled the curls will last until the next shampoo.
To give the locs sheen spray daily with the Cornrows & Co. Jasmine Oil.
I made a double take when I saw this beautiful woman wearing her natural on the red carpet. At first, I did not recognize her, I wondered who is this new face in Hollywood or should I say new hair in Hollywood. The smile....that was the give away that it is Viola Davis.Read More
