Oils are Good for Your Skin

While some people are misinformed about the relationship between oil and skin, others have tried serums but didn't use them correctly. You must apply on damp skin - that is, after you wash your face or after you apply toner. This allows for easy application and for the serum to be distributed evenly. The other reason why people are hesitant to try serums is because they seem to be expensive. If you use 4 drops a day and a 25ml container provides 500 drops, this means that one little jar will last 125 days or 4 months!

REVIEW – Brush with Bamboo

I’ve never really thought about my toothbrush, even though it’s made from plastic. Sure, I’ve seen those alternative toothbrushes at the store but never made the switch. According to Brush with Bamboo, over 4.7 billion plastic toothbrushes end up in oceans and landfills every year.

Lionheads’ Easy Vegan Broth for Soup Noodles

This is another simple meal I go to when stretched for time. I love Asian noodles in soup! There are so many options for this soup. Try it with rice noodles, millet noodles, dumplings, or even gluten-free conchiglie (shell pasta)! Add your favourite veggies and protein too.

LIONHEADS’ Dumpling Filling

When I had to stop eating gluten, there were a few things that I really missed – one of them was Asian dumplings. I found a great recipe for gluten-free pot stickers from Andrea Nguyen’s blog Viet World Kitchen. Even though making pot stickers from scratch is time-consuming, the chewy gluten-like texture is well worth it. As always, I try to incorporate as much protein as I possibly can so I created a dumpling filling with quinoa. Yes, quinoa! These dumplings were a hit with my gluten-loving family over Chinese New Year last week.

Lionheads’ Cashews & Green Beans Spicy Fried Rice

Many people like to order spicy green beans at their local Chinese restaurant. While it is yummy, the green beans are deep fried and the sauce contains a lot of sodium (and gluten for those who are gluten-sensitive). Here is a healthier option that is full of fiber and protein. Most importantly, it is super simple to make.
