Sugar for kids

Last week, my friend sat across from me and said  “It doesn’t matter if you give children sodas (a.k.a. minerals or soft drinks), as they sometimes need sugar to boost their energy levels”. I hear that a lot. Or variations of that kind of statement. The most ridiculous one has to be that ice-cream is a “healthy snack” because it at least contains milk.

ASK A STYLIST (1)

Welcome, to a new series! One where we talk to actual hair stylists and get them to give us insider tips on how to maintain or attain healthy hair. I have teamed up with Nat. Mane of Deep, Brown & Kinks for this. She is the best hair stylist I know and I love her work and how she pays attention to detail. I hope to do a lot more with her as the year goes on but we’ll start here. 
 
today we begin with questions you should ask yourself prior to heading to the Salon for that hair coloring session!

Katharine Natural Nigerian

A few months ago, I received a mail from a reader asking me for the English names of some items she had come across in a Northern Nigeria market. 
 
A few mails back and forth and I decided that I definitely had to interview her so that I could share with you some of her natural lifestyle practices. Easy to incorporate into your daily life and it will make a big impact not only in your life but also in the environment. 
 
The first thing you will probably notice is that Katharine is very tall. Lol! Actually, you will notice that she is an Oyinbo so we are making her an “honorary” Natural Nigerian!  Make sure you read it all, she shares some really interesting things about how we can live Naturally in Nigeria.

A good choice for a filling meal is Pasta and rather than just regular pasta, whole wheat pasta is sooooo much better.

That is the inspiration for today’s Healthy School Lunch Idea.
