When you get a fresh cut and you’re feeling sparkly - inside and out! 😃☺️✨ … man this has been quite the change in my life!
I initially cut my hair for two particular reasons. To be truthful it was a kind of rebellion for me; I was tired of the idea that going natural meant you automatically become entrenched in this “length” challenge that seems to be popular within the natural hair community. Left and right I saw women comparing themselves and shaming others based on length … going natural for me was never a competition but more so to do with learning about myself. Unlearning this ideology that curly hair was something that needed to be ‘fixed’, but instead understanding that curly hair is beautiful,shape shifting - magic!!☺️✨ No matter how long or how short! Second, I believe in listening to your voice - your authentic self and it became so clear to me that this is what I wanted to do with my hair that I woke up one day and went straight to the barber… no looking back! 😄✨👏🏾☺️💕. There’s sooo much I have to say on this topic I think I’ll post a YouTube video on how my big chop changed everything😃✨💕 - thank you @stretchdabarber for keeping me fresh 👏🏾 VISIT HIM @theheadquarters.ca , these guys are good!!! ••• #TheCutLife #CurlyGirl #NaturallyCurly #Curls #CurlBox #SistaGerl #CurlyHair #JoicoIntensity #Joico #naturalhair #canadiannaturalistas #mohawk #bluehair #BlueCurls #BerryCurly

Do you have any recommendations for a broccoli and steak recipe stir-fry??

Hello there!  I apologize for the late reply. I haven’t been checking my blog mails regularly, but I hope the recipe will still be useful! I don’t have a recipe on my blog, but I will post one privately here for you! :)

It’s a very simple recipe and takes maybe around 10-15 minutes to make along with the preparation!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 broccoli
  • 1 cup steak - sliced/ coarsely cubed
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 3 tbsp water (or stock)
  • salt & pepper
  • cooking oil
  • 2 cloves garlic

DIRECTIONS:

1. Prepare the steak accordingly. It’s recommended to cut it into coarse cubes. In a bowl, mix together corn starch, paprika, cumin and soy sauce. Marinade the cubes of steak in the mixture. Sprinkle salt & pepper and mix thoroughly. (Use minimal salt as the soy sauce already gives it a strong salty flavor)

2. Wash the broccoli under cold water. Then cut into chunks - remember to get rid of the lower part of the stem.

3. Heat up some oil in a frying pan. Saute the garlic until it goldens. Then, add in broccoli first and saute. Add in the water and close the lid for about 1 -2 minutes (depending on how big you chopped them). This will soften the broccoli. It should turn to a bright green when it’s softened. (If it turns to forest green, it’s overcooked)

4. Then stir in the cubed steak. Pour in all the sauce in the bowl as well. Then saute at medium-high heat. Saute for about 2-3 minutes until the steak is nicely cooked. (this is a bit above medium rare) Try not to cook it for too long, otherwise it’ll be fully cooked and the beef will become chewy.

5. Finally, season with some salt and pepper if needed before serving!
