Easy Lentil Salad

 

Lentils is a kitchen staple of mine. I eat them all the time. They make excellent soups. But have you ever just had them as a salad? I love this recipe because it is light and refreshing lunch idea. I toasted a few slices of Italian bread and scooped the salad on top of it. I would also have over a bed of greens like spinach. Try this recipe! I’m sure you’ll love having lentils this way!

Best Vegan Bagel & Lox

New York is knows for having the best bagels. Nothing beats a freshly baked bagel…actually a freshly baked anything! There are so many bagel flavors and sandwich combinations you can order in a New York bagel shop. I’ve even seen rainbow and an Oreo bagel!

A very popular bagel sandwich is bagel and lox. Lox is smoked salmon which is paired with a cream cheese bagel. You can add toppings like red onion, capers, and dill. I wanted to create a vegan version of this to expand to my “I don’t know what to eat for breakfast” menu.

How to WAX & GROOM your EYEBROWS at HOME

I invested in a GiGi wax kit  4 years later ago and I absolutely love it! I use this wax kit for my whole body. Depending on how coarse the hair is, I alternate the wax between hard wax and soft wax.

In the past, I’ve gotten my eyebrows threaded and waxed. I loved the results from threading but its so painful for me. The very last time, I had them threaded, I tear so much from the pain that I lost one of my contacts and I couldn’t see. Theses are prescription contacts…I am blind as a bat! It was so embarrassing walking down the street with one eye open. I stopped on a corner and called my husband to guide me home. Such a sad day! As for waxing, I love the results as well. But it was a hit or miss. The lady that I trusted with my brows was very popular and when there was  a long wait for her at times and she would “rush” through the waxing and grooming. I wasn’t of fan of that.

About a year ago, I mustered up the courage to wax my own eyebrows and it has been my routine ever since. I love the way my eyebrows turn out. Its super easy once you understand the “shape” and hairs of your eyebrows. I save time and money! Its a win win! You should try it too. Its really not that bad.


Waxing has many benefits. As I mentioned earlier, I use it on all my body. It prevents in-grown hairs and your hair grows slower making you go longer between waxes. I plan on sharing more of my wax routine as the warm weather begins.
