Skin is our largest organ.  What we apply on it matters.  It digests everything we put on our body and it affects our organs.  Make right, educated choices for your health, be conscious of the hidden toxic chemicals, that may be in cosmetics you use every day.

If you wouldn’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin.

Spices, garlic, chickpeas, mushrooms, lemon juice and carrots which simmer in a beautiful cilantro infused tomato sauce make a great marriage. I like serving this stew with white quinoa, basmati or brown rice to make it extra hearty.
