It’s been several years since I discovered how connected all of my daily habits are to my health and I’ve been on a journey since to make as many healthy choices throughout each day as possible. Not just to stay healthy on the inside, but for my skin and hair too. The smallest decision in my day can have an effect on so many things, so I try to live each moment with intent and make sure not only are my choices thoughtful, but the products I use too.
What’s really cool is when a product intersects two aspects of your life that require careful consideration when it comes to embracing a healthy lifestyle. Hair Food Manuka Honey & Apricot Shampoo and Conditioner represents just this. This natural shampoo and conditioner combines two ingredients that find their way into my snacks and meals constantly, thanks to growing up with a family that loves exotic fruit.
My family’s Cuban heritage has given us all a love for most exotic fruits, apricots being one of them. Whether it was taking a bite right into one, tossing slices onto a salad or incorporating them into desserts. This fruit is so delicious and it has Vitamin A, C and E. So, seeing this in this Hair Food hydrating and moisturizing shampoo and conditioner resonated with me immediately.
The other ingredient stand out is Manuka Honey. Something I didn’t grow up eating, but as an adult, it’s made it’s way into so many snacks and drinks I have on a daily basis. Manuka Honey has many amazing health benefits like being an anti-inflammatory and having lots of antioxidants. For hair, it helps retain moisture and seal it in. It’s often used as a hair mask, for this reason.
I love that this ingredient isn’t just in this Hair Food Manuka Honey & Apricot Shampoo and Conditioner, but it’s also in the brand’s Manuka Honey & Hemp Extract Damage Recovery Serum. I’ve been using the shampoo and conditioner daily for a perfect balance of cleansing and moisturizing. Then I apply the serum to my damp, just-washed hair once a week to give my hair an extra boost of
Because of this sulfate free, paraben free and dye free shampoo and conditioner with these ingredients that are part of my healthy lifestyle, I want to share my Manuka Honey & Apricot Oatmeal Parfait, Inspired by Hair Food.
It’s the simplest and easiest recipe (literally, all you’re doing is just layering the ingredients) and can be enjoyed for breakfast, snack or dessert. It’s also great to make a few ahead of time and have them in your fridge ready to grab whenever you’re in the mood for something yummy 😊
Manuka Honey & Apricot Oatmeal Parfait
- all-natural dried apricots, chopped
- vanilla yogurt
- oatmeal, cooked
- sliced almonds
- Manuka honey, warmed up a bit so it’s easy to drizzle
When your oatmeal is made, mix in a dash of cinnamon to your taste. In each cup, spoon in equal parts the yogurt then the oatmeal. Place on top the apricot slices, sliced almonds and then a drizzle of the Manuka honey. If covered in the fridge, these will taste fresh up to 3 days.
