(T.O.) back to basics...

I haven't cooked properly in soooo long. I work with food so by the time I get home, I have no desire to cook. Add exhaustion from work and school to the mix, and I definitely have no intention of cooking when I get home. However, I was tired of eating Mr. Noodle every night and missed having a home cooked meal; so I decided it was time to step back into my kitchen. I was in the mood for something quick, easy and delicious.
Easy as one, two, three :)
I loving snacking on peppers, and I enjoy cooking with them even more! A little minced garlic and onion... *lips smacking* delicious!
Your choice of pasta and...
Voila! A simple and easy pasta dish made in less than 20 minutes. Perfect for people that are always on the go, and still enjoy a delicious meal. Even though I used parmesan cheese, the alfredo sauce was made with soy milk. YUM!
Happy Cooking!
peace, love and health

(T.O.) GREEN Nails 101

One afternoon while getting my nails done, I silently thought about all the benefits of wearing nail polish. I mean sure you'll have pretty hands and feet.. correction pretty finger nails and toe nails, but what is that nail polish really doing to you? To your health? There had to be more to that toxic smell that instantly invades your sense of smell when you go to a nail salon or open a bottle of nail polish/ nail polish remover. So I did a little research on nail polish and its ingredients... I wasn't pleased. So I rounded up all my nail polish, and in the garbage they went. I don't mind not wearing nail polish. To be honest I'm happy to have one less thing to do, ha ha ha; but I kinda miss playing around with different colors on my nails... This is how the search for safer nail polish/care began, as well as how I found Zoya...
.Zoya nail polish is free of toluene, formaldehyde, DBP (phthalates) and camphor. There are over THREE HUNDRED colors to choose from as well as 4 seasonal collections every year. They also have a 3 in 1 nail polish remover that not only removes nail polish, but also cleans the nail plate as well as helps to extend nail polish wear. All Zoya nail polish and nail polish treatments are free of the toluene, formaldehyde, DBP and camphor. I like, I like.
So why should you care?
Most people think that environmental chemicals just bounce off of our bodies. Wrong. In order to prevent damage our bodies have to efficiently process them. Majority of the chemicals that we inhale are absorbed into our blood stream, deactivated by the liver and then expelled from the system via the colon, urine, or sweat. 
Dibutyl Phthalates prevent nail polish from chipping, but they also improve absorption of topical ingredients into the skin- this is a negative quality when used in formulas with other chemical ingredients. Toluene and xylene are petroleum based solvents that are toxic and have been linked to cancer. Formaldehyde is a carcinogenic and a noxious chemical that is highly toxic to the liver. 
Noxious chemicals like the ones found in commercial nail polish, create an increased burden on your liver. The more chemicals you're exposed to, the harder it is for your live to function efficiently.
Even though Zoya products are not entirely free of chemicals; they immediately eliminate the risk that comes with using commercial nail polish that contain dangerous and toxic ingredients. If you must wear nail polish, I suggest choosing the least harmful path of resistance :)

peace, love and health
