Wait 48 hours to shampoo. Dye molecules need time to set into strands. When you are ready to wash, choose a shampoo for color treated hair, which contains gentler detergents. Rinse with tepid water. Hot water expands the cuticle, which will lead to fading.

Sustainable Eating Made Easy

Plant-based diets are a tenet of sustainable eating and mushrooms are often included as part of the movement. Known for their inherent umami flavor and nutrition properties, mushrooms are recognized for their unique growing process and need for minimal natural resources used during production, which makes mushrooms both healthy on the plate and gentle on the planet.

It’s Spring and we're thinking Israeli Salad

Yeah, get your Mediterranean mood on with a fresh salad, and don’t forget to include a side of pita and hummus – maybe even some falafel. There are tons of recipes out there, but know the basics for this simple chopped salad are: cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers, red onion, fresh herbs (think parsley and mint), lemon juice, and of course, olive oil (it’s Mediterranean!). Optional: include some crumbled feta, toasted pine nuts and chickpeas.

Thank Your Gustatory Receptor Cells

Thank Your Gustatory Receptor Cells

That’s science lingo for taste buds! Our taste buds perceive four basic tastes: sweet, salty, sour, and bitter. One of their functions is to keep your body from unsafe food chemicals. There are tiny taste hairs that check out food chemicals in your saliva. When these taste hairs are stimulated, they send nerve impulses to your brain. So if you ate poisonous or rotten food, you would most likely spit them out immediately – that way you stop them from entering your stomach.
