Hair food: Minced soy

I'll be honest: This tastes like cardboard.
But the protein to calorie ratio is amazing and if you mix it with spices and vegetables or meat, you won't notice the cardboard taste.

I like to mix with with minced beef for meat sauce or lasagne.

But no more than 1:10 in ratio or the cardboard taste comes through anyways.

For a lasagne with 1 kg meat, I usually use 50 gram (1 dl plus a bit) of the dry soy. It swells up a lot once you add water.

100 gram minced, dry soy:

  • 265 calories
  • 64 gram protein
  • 19 gram fibre

Since protein is 4 calories per 1 gram, this is almost pure protein (64 x 4 = 256 calories)

Today's hair

I found this thing when I was looking for something else.
When did I even buy it?
I don't think I ever used it...?

Well, it took some serious pulling (And some curse words) to make this braid. I guess it just wasn't made for my quantities of hair! So I doubt I will use it again...

Sheet mask hack

A quick trick to make Korean sheet masks fit better to your face. Sheet masks just never fit really well, so this might help.

You need
  • 1 sheet mask
  • 1 scissor

  1. Fold the top of the sheet mask down to fit your hairline better 
  2. Smooth over forehead to get the mask to hold
  3. Adjust eye-area, especially if it has those little "flaps"
  4. Smooth over cheeks to hold mask to face 
  5. Take loose strip over lips and cut 
  6. Fit the masks sides of to the nose and fold the strip over
  7. Smooth over cheeks and down to jawline 
  8. Cut part under lips and smooth over to fit chin 
  9. Fold cut part up to make smooth 
  10. Cut excess part off and fit over lips 
Finish with a Daiso Japan Reusable silicone mask cover to keep essence from evaporating and mask from slipping if you want to sit up while wearing a sheet mask.

Today's hair

Yesterday's "Literally every girl on Pinterest"-style pinned up.

I quite liked it actually: The "tilt" of the Dutch braids made it easier to lift the bun off my neck.
