Vegan Spicy Chicken Sandwich

With all this talk about Spicy Chicken Sandwiches and Chicken Wars, I decided to make my own version and of course make it vegan!

This Tofu Chicken Patty has spot on texture and a nice sweet spicy heat. If you haven't had tofu before or think you don't like it, consider giving this a try. I start with frozen tofu, so the texture becomes like that of chicken. You can use the base recipe for tofu fried chicken or tofu nuggets.  

The marinade gives it such flavor and juiciness without leaving the patty soggy.

1 cup sugar
1/8 cup lemon juice
1/8 cup water

If you have a great recipe I should try, let me know!

Nature's Wild Berry. Turn Sour Into Sweet!

natures wild berry challenge

We took the Nature's Wild Berry Challenge and tried the Ledidi Berry for the first time.
Nature's Wild Berry is All Natural and Non GMO.

You put one berry in your mouth and chew it for about 30 seconds. Afterward you can eat any sour foods and they will taste sweet!

We tried it with lemons, sour orange, salt and vinegar chips, sliced cucumber and unsweetened cranberry juice. Amazingly all the foods became quite sweet after trying the berry!

Would you try Nature's Wild Berry? If you have already, let me know below!

How To Comb Out Locs / K's 5 Year Loc Journey

how to comb out locs

K made the decision to loc her hair when she was 4 years old.
She was never into getting her hair done. So much so, that it would take us days to complete a washing, conditioning, detangling session.

I figured their was not much sense in fighting about hair weekly. It's just hair and it's hers, so we discussed it and came up with 3 options. 

#1- Cut it very short, so there would be little maintenance. Just washing, conditioning as needed and a moisture spritz daily. 
#2- Loc it up. I explained what that meant and how "permanent" it was. 
#3- Keep on as we had been. 

This was not really an option, but I thought if she wanted to keep her hair as is, she would know that maintenance sessions were necessary and would be able to deal with it better.

She chose the second option and loved having locs from the very beginning. She grew them for 5 years and then started tossing around the idea of taking them out.

We had always said that we would cut them when and if she ever decided she didn't want them any longer. However, now that she was 9 years old, she was very curious about her loose hair and really didn't want to cut off her length. I understood of course, because she was very young when she made the decision, so I agreed to take them down.
For all information on how we took them down, please check out the video below!
