When I first tried kelp noodles, I was surprised by them. They are clear noodles with a slightly crunchy texture and not a whole lot of flavor on their own. When you marinade them, kelp noodles do an amazing job of taking on the flavor of any vegetables and sauces they have been sitting with. These kelp noodles with peanut sauce are gingery, garlicky, and full of so much flavor! I love the mix of the creamy peanut sauce, the slight crunch of the kelp noodles, and the fresh vegetables.
Kelp noodles are rich in calcium, iron, and vitamin K. They are very low-calorie, gluten-free, and can be a great substitute for traditional pasta or just a fun new item to try. While they are delicious, kelp noodles are high in iodine and should not be consumed often because of their high sodium levels. Iodine can help keep your thyroid healthy and sea vegetables are a great way to include iodine in your diet.

As part of the annual #BeCrueltyFree week from Humane Society International (HSI), being a part of the #BlogForBunnies project is extremely important to me. Logical Harmony is about promoting a cruelty free lifestyle and we believe that no animals need to be harmed. We try hard to raise awareness about the global progress towards a reduction in animal testing practices and hand-curate a list of Cruelty Free and Vegan Brands so that you are able to make educated decisions on what you are supporting. Working with some amazing non-profits like Humane Society International has been a great part of this journey. They are constantly campaigning for change to be made in the right direction and do an incredible amount of work to reduce animal testing globally.
Here are the reasons why we consider cruelty free to be important.
1. Animal testing is not necessary. At Logical Harmony, we believe that animal testing is completely unnecessary. The tests that are used were created decades ago. Not only are they outdated, but there is no way that they can be considered safe anymore. Not only that, but the large amount of companies who do not test on animals show that any product can be made without animal testing. There is simply no reason to continue to test cosmetics on animals.
Aside from choosing to not sell in markets where animal testing is required, brands can also make the decision to not use ingredients and formulations that are required to be tested on animals. There are thousands of existing ingredients and formulations that are considered safe for human use and do not need to be tested on animals.

I am always on the lookout for a product that will help keep my hair smooth and tangle-free without weighing it down. The EVOLVh SmartStart Leave-in Conditioner was included in the January Petit Vour beauty box. I have used EVOLVh products in the past and was really impressed with them. After reading the product claims on the EVOLVh SmartStart Leave-in Conditioner, I couldn’t wait to give it a try.
Claims: “This lightweight, water-based formula is made with raw lecithin, a powerful natural extract that fortifies weak strands and prevents future breakage. A duo of rice bran and cumin seed oil guards against heat and UV damage, while bergamot fruit oil softens and detangles while preventing flyaways.”
