There has been a lot of negativity towards gluten-free diets lately. We have seen tons of articles on how eating gluten-free isn’t any better for our health (unless you have Celiac’s disease).

I recently bought 4 products from 100% Pure Cosmetics to test out. This is the second natural make-up brand I am reviewing, the first one was UltraPure Cosmetics. 100% Pure was recommended to me by a friend, and I decided to try it because it is free of all toxic chemicals found in conventional cosmetics (parabens, dyes, fragrances, etc.). The coolest part of all: 100% Pure colors their make up with fruit and vegetable pigments! Read on to learn how these products worked for me.

Product Review: UltraPure Cosmetics

I recently purchased a few basic products from UltraPure cosmetics to test them out. I chose UltaPure Cosmetics because their make up is free of toxic chemicals that are often used in conventional make up. These toxic chemicals include petrochemicals, parabens, bismuth oxychloride, talc, and dyes. The ingredients list for each of the products I purchased is very short, which is a good thing! The Environmental Working Group recommends you to choose cosmetics with a low number of ingredients, because this helps to reduce the chemical load on the body. But as great as it is to have healthy cosmetics, the point is defeated if they don’t work well! Read on to learn how these cosmetics worked for me.

But fear not; you can make an excellent substitute for mashed potatoes using cauliflower, and its super simple! While cauliflower may not be the most obvious potato substitute, you will be surprised what a delicious and nutritious dish you can create with them.
