Today, I visited my hairdresser for a trim and a bit of color. I have absurdly thick hair, and up until two years ago, it was also very very long. My aunt actually used to call it my mane. Here’s an embarrassing collegiate photo:
A little over a year ago, I noticed that my hair wasn’t nearly as thick as it had been all my life. It was never thin, but it was surprisingly normal – straightening it didn’t take the hour it used to. Slowly but surely, though, as I graduated from a teaspoon of peanut butter to a tablespoon, from a tablespoon to multiple dips in the jar, from only peanut butter to avocados and olive oil as well, I saw my hair’s thickness return.
Today, my hairdresser commented that my hair has gotten even thicker. I give credit to health, and to healthy fat.
My dinner tonight had healthy fats as the star:
I am still amazed by my food processor.
creamy cilantro pesto
- 1/2 c pine nuts, soaked for 2 hours or more
- juice of 1/4 lemon
- 1 bunch cilantro (including stems)
- 1-2 T nutritional yeast, to taste
- water, as needed
Blend pine nuts in food processor until creamy. Add lemon juice, pulse to combine. Add cilantro, nutritional yeast, and water if needed; pulse again until well combined.
I served some over shredded summer squash, steamed asparagus, sun dried tomatoes, and quinoa. Yum.
