By now, we all know that what we put into our bodies matters. A lot. What we eat each day can have a HUGE impact on our energy level, physical and mental health, immune system and not to mention hair.

We also know that eating healthy all the time is challenging, especially when on-the-go. Cue Culver City Salads, a food truck and provider of healthy lunches in Vancouver. As a manufacturing (and environmentally-conscious) business, AG supports local wherever we can. In fact, we’re proud supporters of Culver City’s solar energy truck.

And if the beautiful long-locked Culver City Salad babes are any indication – your hair really is what you eat.
