Frontier Vegan/Vegetarian Bac'uns Bits
Califia Almond Milk
Morningstar Vegetable Breakfast Sausage
Nature's Path Corn Flakes
Lilla Rose Flexi-Clip
On a lighter note, I will be enjoying a fresh green salad topped with my favorite alternative to bacon bits. This meatless alternative has a smoky taste and it adds great crunch to salads or baked potatoes. It is made by Frontier Natural Products Co-op and comes in two choices - vegan or vegetarian. I have only tried the vegan bits. I purchased it at my local healthy market for $4.79. My sons tried it and could not believe that it was bacon-less! If you are looking for a topping to your favorite salad or baked potato, OR you just want to add some crunch to your favorite recipe without the added cholesterol and preservatives, give it a try!

The Ultra Care® Moisture Blend™ Oil Rich Serum
I was so excited to discover a natural oil that did not cost a fortune. At a mere $3.96 per 2 ounces, I honestly did not expect much. My initial thoughts were that it might be sticky - especially since it is advertised as a serum. Before purchasing it, I had convinced myself that I would use it as an after bath oil if it did not work for my hair and scalp. After the initial application, I was surprised! My scalp felt greatly invigorated after gently massaging it between my small plaits. I really do believe that this oil will definitely become a keeper in my regimen. I don’t know how long this product has been out, nor how long it will be available. Therefore, I plan to buy another bottle or two when I return to Wal-Mart .

A Great Detangler and Moisturizer
Since I am in the process of transitioning from relaxed to natural hair, I have been in search of a leave in conditoner to replace the All Ways Instant Oil Moisturizer Leave In conditioner that I had been using for years. Apparently, the All Ways brand is being discontinued since it is now very difficult to find in stores. When I do find it in stores, I usually stock up. Although Kids Organics Shea Butter Moisturizing Lotion is advertised as a kid's product, it does an excellent job detangling and moisturizing my hair. I have been transitioning now for nine months. This shea butter moisturizer leaves my hair extremely soft, and it does not contain mineral oil or petroleum.
