    Hey y'all, I did less today because im sick. Didn't feel like making smoothies with a cold...

    Breakfast : 2 lbs of grapes
    Lunch: homeade pasta sauce with lots of fresh garlic tomato and basil. Added lentils for more nutrition

    Dinner: more pasta

    Vits: Extra doses of vitc and b complex, plus 3 cloves of raw garlic with honey and ginger to help knock out this cold.

    Breakfast: banana
    Lunch: dairy free yogurt and unsweetened coconut water, and a couple of pieces of soft melon
    Dinner: small pieces of baked chicken, wild rice mix, and some pinto beans

    Didn't eat or drink as much as usual because of issues. I have re-adjust my diet to avoid flare-ups, have to stay away from certain foods. Couldn't swallow vits today, will hopefully be back on track tomorrow.

    Been Lurking in this Thread - will Join!:hungry:

    I have been embarking on a Plant Based Diet (so I won't list everything I eat).

    But I have been eating plant based and overall trying to eat better/cleaner.

    Trying to decide if I wanna be Vegan, Vegetar, Pesca or Flexatarian? Not sure? But, for all intents and purposes have not been consuming meat.

    Also doing smoothies in the a.m. and currently taking Nzuri Liquid Vitamin for Hair.

    We have fresh fruit juice during the day and I have been adding ground flaxseed, hempseed and chia seeds to the mix.

    It’s not that bad.

    Hi ladies!

    I won't be starting my healthy regimen until next week :look: But here goes:


    1. Tell us about your hair now and how you hope improving your diet can improve it over the next year.
    My hair has been between MBL and HL for about 2 years. I figure eating healthy and more tlc will get me past that mark.

    2. Come check in everyday.
    I may not be able to post daily, but I'll post as often as possible per week (if the OP will allow)

    For breakfast I had rice, beans, avocado, moringa, raw vegetables and coked vegetables.

    I just drank some nettle, burdock, plantain leaf and dandelion root tea. Sprayed my scalp with and massaged in some of the tea. :afropick:

    i will try to remember that.

    Dandelion helps with liver detoxification which in turn strengthens the body and its organs which skin, including the scalp, is one of them.

    Plantain leaf is great for skin irritation.

    I heard a saying once that disease cannot exist in a body where the blood is pure. I try to look for herbs that help to purify the body. These herbs are rich in minerals that not only nourish the body but are greatly beneficial for scalp health.

    That looks really good. I ended the night with a warm drink of ashwaganda, maca, moringa, turmeric, and molasses. It does not taste the best but I am getting used to the flavors and I know it is good for me.

    Had cabbage, rice, baked potato cubes, lentils and pigeon peas. Cucumber and raw onions.

    I took a pic but I don't know how to upload it. I shall not be defeated. I will try again later.
