Why I use organic Shampoo/Conditioner

A few years ago I became aware of the dangers in chemicals used in every day products. Sodium laurel sulfate aka SLS found in shampoos and conditioners caught my attention.

Ok so lets go in depth:

Sodium lauryl sulfate is a surfactant, detergent, and emulsifier used in thousands of cosmetic products, as well as in industrial cleaners. It is present in nearly all shampoos, scalp treatments, hair color and bleaching agents, toothpastes, body washes and cleansers, make-up foundations, liquid hand soaps, laundry detergents, and bath oils/bath salts. Although SLS originates from coconuts, the chemical is anything but natural. The real problem with SLES/SLS is that the manufacturing process (ethoxylation) results in SLES/SLS being contaminated with 1,4 dioxane, a carcinogenic by-product.
According to the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep: Cosmetic Safety Reviews: research studies on SLS have shown links to:
Irritation of the skin and eyes
Organ toxicity
Developmental/reproductive toxicity
Neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, ecotoxicology, and biochemical or cellular changes
Possible mutations and cancer

Becoming aware of all the harmful ingredients made me make the switch from those yummy smelling hair products to more safer ones. As seen in the picture is a brand I have been using (which I purchased from Whole Foods, it works fine and its affordable. 

Here’s to a healthier living.

You can hear the versatility in his voice, it changes to suit any song.

This dish is amazingly easy to prepare in no time. What is more savvy and elegant than succulent lamb chops grilled with a rustic flare and pampered with a sweet yet tangy balsamic glaze and fragrant hints of rosemary leaves. This is one to make you girls out there satiate, and Guys; this is something that you can make for your girl and she’ll thank you over and over, if you know what I mean. It’s simply “tantalizing” 
Try this Honey Balsamic Lamb Chops and you’ll be screaming for MORE!!

Guys ! The creamy and silky Ricotta Cheese paired with the fragrant essence and mesmeric note of basil stands ground to this homemade pasta ravioli dough which proves to be “easy” and surely will impress your love ones.
Try My Ravioli Caprese, it’s definitely a sultry experience. – Chef Jason

Ravioli Caprese


Dough:  2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting  1 cup very hot water 
Filling:  3/4 cup whole milk ricotta Cheese 1 egg  1/2 cup finely shredded store-bought rotisserie chicken  1/4 cup grated Parmesan  2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil leaves  1/2 teaspoon salt  1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 
Sauce:  5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil  3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves  2 teaspoons grated lemon zest  1/2 teaspoon salt  1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 
For the dough:  In a large bowl combine the flour and the water. Using a wooden spoon, stir to combine into a large ball. Consistency should be smooth, firm to the touch but springs back when poked. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 10 minutes. 
For the filling:  Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl and stir to combine. 
To form the ravioli, cut the dough into 4 evenly sized pieces. The dough should be slightly sticky. Add extra flour as necessary for rolling, but use only a little as necessary. Form each piece into a 2 by 6-inch rectangle. Recover the dough with the plastic wrap. 
Lightly dust the work surface and a rolling pin. Working with 1 piece of dough at a time, roll the dough into a 4 by 19-inch rectangle. Place 9 rounded teaspoons of filling about 1-inch apart down the center of the dough. Fold the dough over the filling. Press down around the edges of each of the ravioli with your fingertips. Cut the ravioli into small squares and press down around the edges again with your fingertips to seal. Place the finished ravioli on a baking tray and continue forming the remaining ravioli. 
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add half the ravioli and cook until the ravioli float stirring occasionally, about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain into a large bowl and cook the remaining ravioli. 
Pour the olive oil over the cooked ravioli. Add the basil, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Gently toss to coat and serve immediately.

Priyanka ‘captured soul of Mary Kom’


Biopic producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali says actress has lived the role of Olympic boxer

Mary Kom co-producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali is overwhelmed by the impact the film’s trailer has had so far.


He agrees that Priyanka Chopra, who plays M.C. Mary Kom onscreen, doesn’t resemble the Olympic bronze medallist boxer but says the actress has captured the star athlete’s soul for the role.


“We wanted to tell Mary Kom’s story. Her life has everything. Drama, passion, valour, warmth, humour. Her story was waiting to be told on screen. I am honoured that we are doing it,” Bhansali said.


The trailer shows Chopra in a state of unconditional surrender as the Olympian boxer. The Manipuri accent is not overdone and neither are those pugilistic postures where she boxes like an untamed cat in the ring with her immediate adversaries and other far less definable enemies outside the boxing ring.

There is her troubled relationship with her father, and her boxing guru. And then there is the tender romance with the man in her life, played by a fine actor, Darshan Kumar.


“Now that we’ve completed the film, it is impossible to imagine anyone but Priyanka playing Mary Kom. She has lived the role. She breathes life into every pore of the character. There are other very fine actors in the film, chosen because they suit the role,” Bhansali said.


The only doubt raised by the trailer is that Chopra does not physically resemble Mary Kom.


Defending the team’s choice of Chopra for the lead part, Bhansali said: “I don’t think the physical resemblance is as important as capturing the soul of the person that the actor is portraying. How much like Charlie Chaplin did Robert Downey Jr look in Chaplin? Did Meryl Steep actually resemble Nora Ephron in Heartburn, or Robert De Niro…did he actually look like Al Capone in the The Untouchables? Or Van Kilmer in The Doors…did he actually look like Jim Morrison? No.


“It’s the core, the essence of the personality that matters. And Priyanka has captured the soul of Mary Kom.”


Ajit Andhare, COO, Viacom18 Motion Pictures, said: “This is already a historic film. Never earlier has a world champion in one arena (Chopra won the Miss World title in 2000) portrayed [a] world championship (Kom is a five time world champion) in another arena on screen.


“The trailer is [a] bull’s eye and the traction we are seeing on digital shows strong engagement. Two rounds won and the match is set up.”


The movie is set to release on September 5.

Why I use non-toxic deodorant regularly
