Healthy Swaps for your Favorite Summer Foods

Happy Friday, friends! For today’s edition of  Friday Favorites, I would love to introduce you to some of my favorite summer foods!

Growing up in the South, summer was always a special time of year. Swimming in my grandparents pool, eating lots of grilled hamburgers topped with tomatoes straight out of the garden followed by homemade ice cream, and catching lightening bugs in the late afternoon are some of my fondest memories. When I made the decision to get healthier and change my eating habits, I did not want to miss out on the fun times by not being able to eat all of the yummy summer dishes. Thankfully, there are healthy versions of all of the foods I grew up on, and they are still just as delicious!

The Higher the Hair, the Closer to Heaven!

This edition of Friday Favorites is all about the hair!

As I was doing a little grocery shopping in Publix Wednesday afternoon, a random woman followed me down an aisle and chased after me, specifically to tell me she loved my hair and find out how I was able to so much volume, even at the end of the day. So today, I want to share with you my top three hair care products for maximum volume!

  1. Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Plus – I spray this right at the roots while my hair is still damp, just before drying my hair. It gives my hair just the right about of “lift.”
  2. Spornette Teasing Brush – My hairstylist introduced me to this style of teasing brush, and it has been a life changer! It can be used to tease the hair at the crown, but it can also be used to smooth the down without pulling out the tease.
  3. Kenra Volume Spray – This stuff is amazing! It only takes a small amount, and it holds hair in place up to 24 hours with no stiffness or sticky residue. Use this after you have teased your hair to finish your style.

And that’s it! Feel free to post any questions or share some of your favorite hair care products in the comments below!
