I’ve been on a total salad kick lately! Well, to be honest, I’m always on a salad kick. I seriously love salad and people used to laugh because I was that 3 year old in a restaurant begging for a salad. For some reason, I just love them! Chef salads are probably my favorite. Specifically the ones you can get at those hole in the wall diners. I know, it sounds crazy but they always pile them high with all the goodies and serve them up with a creamy, homemade dressing.
I wasn’t sure if it was from camping for 2 weeks or from some medication I was on, but my hair was in rebellion mode. It was breaking like crazy and falling out. I know my stress level was extra high, but either way I wasn’t sure what was causing my crazy hair issues. I went and saw my stylist and they said it wasn’t related to my hair coloring. I’m a natural dirty blonde and I put in lighter highlights but they said they didn’t feel like it was related. Either way, I was concerned and started back up on biotin and decided I needed to get my food intake back in check with the right nutrients and to stop eating like poop. Well, it took all of about 5 days of eating good, nutrient dense foods before I noticed a huge difference in my hair. So I’ve stayed on that little stent and it has just improved more and more everyday.
Anyway… now that I went off on a tangent. Try this! The grilled peaches are so good. If you’ve never had grilled peaches before, this is the perfect opportunity to try them. It amplifies the flavor and sweetness of the peaches and gives them the perfect texture to add to the salad.Print
